Get the Look: Camila Alves at the Critics’ Choice Awards‏

19th Annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards - Arrivals

Brazilian beauty Camila Alves sizzled on tonight’s Critics’ Choice Awards red carpet with a sleek and chic knot by NYC-based celebrity hairstylist Peter Butler.

Here, Butler breaks down Camila’s hairstyle:

  1. First, Butler applied John Frieda Frizz Ease Curl Reviver Mousse to Camila’s wet hair and blew it dry. He applied a couple drops of new John Frieda Frizz Ease Nourishing Oil Elixir to smooth out frizz for ultimate sleek locks.
  2. Next, he parted her hair down the center. For the cleanest part possible, he used a flat iron at the hairline.
  3. Then, Butler applied a few drops of John Frieda Frizz Ease Expert Finish Polishing Serum and ran a comb through Camila’s hair to make it as sleek as possible as he shaped it into a low ponytail. For added shine he misted John Frieda Frizz Ease 100% Shine Glossing Mist. An expert tip is to spray hairspray onto a haircolor brush and comb hair from root to ends for an even, sleek look.
  4. Lastly, using three large pins, Butler twisted hair into an off-center knot around the base of the ponytail, leaving the ends out. To lock in style, he sprayed John Frieda Frizz Ease Moisture Barrier Firm Hold Hairspray.

Two more MUST-HAVE DHC products!

1_Detail

DHC’s Olive Virgin Oil is heavenly. Absolutely adore it. Two pumps of this oil, and you’ll never go back to your old moisturizer! I was skeptical at first, because oils tend to make my skin very oily. And then I gave it a try. At first, it feels oily…..but then it disappears into your skin, and you are left with glorious, soft, silky skin! No oil!

Beauty comes naturally. If you thought you’d never put oil on your skin, think again. Bursting with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, Olive Virgin Oil contains 100% certified organic Flor de Aceite, one of the purest forms of olive oil available. It has a superior ability to moisturize and soften skin and to help you achieve a remarkably healthier complexion. Its unique hydrophilic properties allow it to form a protective moisture barrier against irritants without clogging pores. Warm a couple of drops between your palms, gently press onto your face, and let the revitalization begin.

Body beautiful. Wrap your skin in a decadent veil of hydration from seven botanicals: shea butter, cocoa butter, olive oil, coconut oil, avocado oil, squalane and argan oil. It hydrates and seals in moisture from natural emollients for ultra softness—from your fingers to your toes.

American Apparel claim they’re just “celebrating natural beauty” with their new mannequins.

o-AMERICAN-570-1

I’m all for American Apparel celebrating natural beauty, and all, but I think this may be a bit much. I have two sons, 13 and 11. I don’t need them “celebrating natural beauty.” Mmmkay?

American Apparel has put these new ad campaigns up everywhere from billboards to bus stops. The new ads show a pale mannequin wearing see-through lingerie, exposing nipples and pubic hair.

Gothamist first spotted them in the label’s Lower East Side store: a row of three mannequins with unmistakeable bushes. According to the report, people on the street are straight up laughing at them, and since the store’s salespeople didn’ t seem to be all that informed about their origins or intention, we reached out to the company for comment:

“American Apparel is a company that celebrates natural beauty, and the Lower East Side Valentine’s Day window continues that celebration,” a rep told us. “We created it to invite passerbys to explore the idea of what is ‘sexy’ and consider their comfort with the natural female form. This is the same idea behind our advertisements which avoid many of the photoshopped and airbrushed standards of the fashion industry. So far we have received positive feedback from those that have commented and we’re looking forward to hearing more points of view.”

I don’t think these ads are necessary. Am I a prude? What do you think?
