ESC: Julianne Hough, Saturday Savings
The price on these shoes is definitely right, but can she dance all night in them?
Julianne Hough attended the Creative Arts Emmys earlier this month in a stunning silk Rami Al Ali Couture gown. And while we probably could cover rent with her Dvani ruby drop earrings, the dancing queen completed her glam ensemble with a pair of heels that we can actually afford for our own closets. Ever heard of a brand called ALDO?

Have you been drooling over Rihanna’s ELLE October 2017 fashion spread like we have? The biggest fashion houses in the world are clamoring to dress her, thus we surely thought Rih would be dripping in luxury from head to toe.

An Honest Review of Mac x Nicki Minaj Nude Lipsticks

ESC: Nicki Minaj, MacMAC
Nicki Minaj has gone nude…with lipsticks, that is.
Given the No Frauds singer's penchant for pops of color, especially pink, it's surprising to see the rapper of many multi-colored wigs collaborate with Mac Cosmetics on a set of neutral products. Then again, the slightly suggestive idea of baring those flesh-toned colors is totally Nicki.

Whether you experience severe breakouts or a pimple or two when you're stressed, those little bumps can certainly put a damper on your day. So, what do you do?

Whoever said you can't wear white after Labor Day never saw Bella Hadid at Milan Fashion week.

The star was spotted in a rule-breaking, all-white ensemble that proves she's the industry's ultimate cool kid. Bella paired a white blouse (note the dramatic teardrop neckline) with cropped pants in the same shade, and rocked the accessories to match.

Pretty In Plaid

The kaleidoscope of fashion weeks continue!  In London, Tommy Hilfiger’s ready-to-wear collection reinvents the nineties with sweeping plaid trenches, and even more glamorous parka renditions of this old school print.

How to Recreate Selena Gomez's Bold Lips

ESC: E!ssentials, Selena Gomez
Selena Gomez's pop of color makes an impact.
Paired with nude-toned makeup, her apple red pout is perfect for fall. It stands out against the dark and muted hues of the season. Plus, it looks best when everything else is toned down (read: less is more). Whether you love lipstick or prefer lip balm, for a quick impactful look, colorful lips with radiant skin, nude shadow and wispy lashes are a great go-to.

Style them up or down, but don’t be surprised if you find yourself at a cocktail party in sweats. These looks aren’t for working out, they’re for working it.

Velvet is Having a Moment & We Are Here for It

Branded: Velvet
Fun fact: It is impossible to talk about reassessing your fall wardrobe without mentioning velvet.
It's a given that every year, as the weather gets colder, you have to factor the fabric in. Not only does velvet never go out of style, it's also a practical choice simply because it's weightier and will keep you warm. Never mind the fact that it just looks extra-luxe and expensive.
