September 7th, 2017 by Jennifer Beile 10 Celebrities That Are Going Makeup Free

#NoMakeupMonday has been a popular movement on Instagram, with even our favorite celebrities baring all and posting makeup-free selfies. For women who have the media telling them what is beautiful, there is something so empowering about showing oneself as is, no makeup and no filters. Are we finally moving towards individual beauty being the standard, instead of having someone tell us what is desirable? We can hope so! Until then, makeup-free selfies are a step in helping women everywhere become more confident with their bare-faced selves.

Take a look at some of our favorite celebs taking part in makeup-free selfies!

Of course, makeup can be fun and empowering and artistic too! But it should be something that makes you happy. Whether you love makeup or not, what’s most important is feeling comfortable and YOU. We love seeing celebrities show us another side of themselves as part of an effort to embrace and empower women everywhere.

August 24th, 2017 by Jennifer Beile “The Big Six”: The Original Supermodels

Before Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid, before social media and family connections, before celebrities took over ad campaigns and magazine covers, there was “The Big Six.” In the midst of a new wave of grunge and bubblegum pop music, an overabundance of denim, and the beginning of the celebrity gossip obsession, the 90’s also became the decade when models became supermodels and celebrities in their own right. Today’s models are automatically shoved into the “super” category just by having a certain amount of Instagram likes, but The Big Six: Claudia Schiffer, Cindy Crawford, Christy Turlington, Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, and Kate Moss became larger than fashion, and still manage to captivate us today. Below, we’re taking a look at the original supermodels’; then and now.

 

Claudia Schiffer
Claudia Schiffer rose to supermodel status fame in the 90’s and currently still holds the Guinness Book of World Records for appearing on the most magazine covers. Schiffer became the face for Guess? and the muse for Chanel, dabbled in acting, and is currently using her status for good as a UK Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF.

Cindy Crawford
As one of the women to define “supermodel”, Cindy Crawford, the highest paid model in the world in 1995, became a celebrity beyond modeling, delving into acting, endorsements, and even furniture design. Crawford is involved in numerous charities and activism organizations, such as The Ronald McDonald House Charities and Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation.

Christy Turlington
Christy Turlington is currently deeply involved in the crusade to providing safe pregnancies and births for all women with her non-profit she founded, Every Mother Counts, in 2010. But in the late 80’s and early 90’s Turlington was at the top of the fashion model game, a top pick for every high end designer in the industry.

Naomi Campbell
As one of the most recognizable and in-demand models of the 90’s Naomi Campbell is still well known and successful in the industry today. After conquering the runway, fashion magazine covers, music video and television acting, Campbell is using her name for good and cofounded an advocacy group called Diversity Coalition to campaign for diversity in the modeling world. Campbell also does work with many organizations around the world in an effort to fight poverty.

Linda Evangelista
Linda Evangelista coined the still popular phrase, “We don’t wake up for less than $10,000 a day,” speaking of herself and the other models that make up The Big Six. Evangelista has since retired from fashion modeling, and now focuses her efforts on activism and research for HIV/AIDs and breast cancer.

Kate Moss
Kate Moss is the “six” in The Big Six, who rose to fame after her Calvin Klein campaign. Although she is targeted in the media for her “partying” lifestyle, Moss is currently still modeling at the top of her game. She is a well-known street style icon, and has dabbled in music and fashion design. Moss also uses her fame and money for good, supporting many charities, including Elton John AIDS Foundation, Make Poverty History, and SamandRuby charity, which she helped found.

July 27th, 2017 by Jennifer Beile 10 Iconic Princess Diana Fashion Moments

Although I was young when Princess Diana died, I vividly remember how much it impacted the world. Nations worldwide mourned for the loss of this beautiful soul. Princess Diana had a kind heart, was charismatic and seemed down-to-earth despite her larger-than-life title. A new HBO documentary, Diana, Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy, aired this week to commemorate the 20-year anniversary of her death, in which Prince William and Prince Harry fondly recall their mother’s life and legacy.

In memory of Princess Diana and as an ode to her love of fashion, I’ve highlighted some of her most iconic style moments.

The LBD Heard Around the World
Was it a strategic PR move to take over the headlines as her then-husband Prince Charles’ cheating scandal was exposed, or simply a coincidence that Princess Diana caught everyone’s eyes in this LBD?

 

Wedding Dress

A Wedding Dress with a Record-Breaking Train
With a 25 foot train, the longest in royal wedding history, Princess Diana stunned and wed Prince Charles in this dress as 700 million people watched from around the world.

 

Chic Mama To Be

Nicknamed after the trend on hit ’80s soap opera Dynasty, Princess Diana often wore modern gowns with wide shoulders.

Velvet, sequins, and beading featured in this glamorous gown. Princess Diana stunned at a White House gala dinner in 1985, where she had her iconic dance with John Travolta. The dress has since then been auctioned off for charity, along with others from the Princess’s collection.

 

Radiant in Raspberry

Princess Diana made many public appearances looking poised and beautiful, but this raspberry Victor Edelstein gown is one of my favorites, and I can envision it being worn on a red carpet today.

A Casual Princess
Princess Diana wasn’t always dressed to the nines in expensive gowns; she looked stunning and put together in casual looks, like this colorful jumper and rain boots outfit.

 

Redefining a Staple

Princess Diana’s most memorable fashion moments are filled with countless couture gowns and chic suits, but her casual looks stand the test of time. Her blue jeans, blazer, and baseball cap combo is still a trendy look today.

July 13th, 2017 by Jennifer Beile 7 Workouts Our Favorite Celebrities Swear By

Have you amped up your workout routine for summer? Whether you’re looking to gain strength, raise your endorphins, or tone up a bit, summertime can be a huge workout motivator. I strongly believe that every body is a bikini body, so I try to view working out as a source of stress relief and a means to feeling strong. But it can get repetitive, so I’m always looking for a new workout to keep from becoming bored.

Most celebrities have private trainers but many of them have shared their workouts. I love seeing which celebs have workout routines that are available to me. Let’s be honest: there’s a reason celebs have such fit bodies, and I am more than happy to steal their secrets.

Take a look at some of the workouts our favorite celebrities are loving right now!

 

LEKfit

LEKFit 
I found out about LEKFit from Busy Phillipps‘s Instagram stories. This dance-inspired cardio workout will make you sweat more than you thought possible! If you can’t make it to the studio in LA, LEKFit is also available on demand for you to do in your own home or gym.

 

Soul Cycle

SoulCycle 
I’ve been to many spin studios, and I have to hand it to SoulCycle for having some of the most heart-pumping, intense classes and instructors. Celebrities like David Beckham, Kelly Ripa, and Lea Michele seem to agree!

 

workouts

Barry’s Bootcamp
As seen on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Barry’s Bootcamp is killer! A mix of treadmill intervals and resistance training, the only thing you will regret about this workout is not going earlier. Other famous fans include Ellie Goulding, Amanda Seyfried, and Naomi Campbell.

 

BodyBySimone

Body by Simone 
Body by Simone is a danced-based interval workout loved by Sandra Bullock, Emmy Rossum, and Anne Hathaway. You can participate too, with studios in New York and Los Angeles, DVDs, and an online streaming service.

 

TracyAnderson

The Tracy Anderson Method 
Another dance-inspired cardio class (there is definitely a dance workout trend happening here), famous friends Madonna and Gwyneth Paltrow swear by this workout.

 

Boxing

Boxing
Boxing is a great way to build strength and get out any aggression, and it’s a workout that I personally love. Punching bags are easily found in your neighborhood gym, or you can attend a boxing gym like Gigi Hadid and Gina Rodriguez.

 

ReformerPilates

Reformer Pilates
Not a new workout by any means, but reformer Pilates has certainly been trending the last few years—and for a good reason! Pilates creates long, lean, strong bodies and is sworn by by celebs like Alessandra Ambrosio, Kate Hudson, and Karlie Kloss.
