A year ago, my daily skincare routine consisted of a splash of water and moisturizer. But since learning about other Lucky editors' detailed regimens, my own has seriously expanded.
The most recent addition: an essence. Essences soften, plump and hydrate skin. Their water-based formulas are more lightweight than serums and creams and allow ingredients to quickly penetrate deep into skin. Over time, expect improved texture, a more luminous complexion and a boost in your skin's ability to retain moisture.
So where does an essence fit in with the rest of your routine? Use it after your cleanser but before your moisturizer. Apply it by pressing the formula onto your skin with your fingertips.
Best of all, there are fantastic options, no matter what your skin type or budget! Click through to shop.Read More »from The New Skincare Step You Have to Try

Last year brought a few major changes for Miranda Kerr. In 2013, the Australian supermodel chose not to renew her Victoria's Secret contract, continued to promote her organic skincare line and landed an international gig as ShopStyle's campaign face. Now, in 2014, it seems the 30-year-old will be venturing even farther from Victoria's Secret territory: next month, she'll be releasing a song with Irish singer/dancer Bobby Fox.

Miranda will reportedly sing the female part of the duet, as originally voiced by Ann-Margret. "She didn't take herself too seriously," a spokesperson for Fox told the Daily Mail. "She just got into character and had a ball recording it."

Since I'm about 99.99 percent certain that you already own a denim jacket, chambray shirt and skinny jeans in at least three different washes, I won't bother talking about the classic denim pieces you need in your life. You're more than familiar with those-heck, you live in those. In fact, you wear those so often that it's starting to get a little boring. You're ready to switch things up.
That's where the eight new, up-and-coming denim trends in the slideshow above come in. You'll find each one provides all the comfort and ease of the standard Canadian tuxedo, but feels a little more exciting, less expected; you won't walk down the street and spot seven girls wearing nearly the exact same outfit. What's more, because I know how tempting it is to revert right back to a favorite pair of dark rinse stovepipes, I'm making each look super-easy to try: along with plenty of helpful examples for you copy-taken both from street style photography and some of the LuckyRead More »from Eight New Denim Trends Worth Trading Your Skinny Jeans For

Last night at the Olympics, 17-year-old Adelina Sotnikova took home the gold medal in women's figure skating in a stunning upset over 2010 champion Yuna Kim of South Korea. Over the course of the competition, Sotnikova racked up 224.59 points against Kim's 219.11-though many immediately contested those final scores. In fact, many viewers had placed their bets on Sotnikova's 15-year-old teammate Yulia Lipnitskaya early in the game, after a video of her performing in the team skating competition went viral thanks to her physics-defying, dizzying spins. But after several falls knocked down her overall ranking, Lipnitskaya-nicknamed Russia's "tiny genius"-finished in fifth place.
Meanwhile, Italian Carolina Kostner took the bronze medal, American competitor Gracie Gold took fourth place, Japanese skater Mao Asada finished in sixth and Gold's fellow U.S. teammate Ashley Wagner wound up in seventh.
Of course, while Olympic skaters are judged on a mix of their programs'Read More »from Ranking the Figure Skating Costumes from the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics

With the Oscars right around the corner, we plan to spend this weekend not only catching up on the nominated movies we haven't seen yet, but also drafting up our must-watch list for films that are coming out later this spring-like the upcoming big-screen adaptation of Divergent (starring Kate Winslet, Shailene Woodley and Ashley Judd to name a few!). In case you're unfamiliar with the plot, Divergent is set in a future world where people are divided into distinct groups, called "factions," based on their personalities. Shailene plays the main character, Tris Prior, who is "divergent" and will never fit into any single faction. And while the Divergent world is super-selective, Sephora's brand-new collection based on the movie has makeup and nail polishes that are a great fit for everyone.
The limited-edition products are packaged with imagery from the film, and each set has its own unique tie to the movie. For instance, the Multi-Piece Collector's Kit includes "get theRead More »from Divergent X Sephora: The Movie and Makeup Collaboration You've Been Waiting For

Any awards show that is able to lure Beyoncé, Kate Moss and One Direction into the same room is one we'll happily watch. To wit, yesterday's annual Brit Awards was no small fête, chock-full of performances from the likes of Artic Monkeys, Katy Perry, Ellie Goulding and, yes, Queen Bey. Kate Moss even took to the stage to read a somewhat bizarre acceptance speech on behalf of David Bowie-whilst looking unfairly cool in one of the rock icon's "Ziggy Stardust"-era costumes, of course.
From Rosie Huntington-Whiteley to Rita Ora, the Brits (and Americans!) were dressed to the absolute nines at the Brit Awards last night; click through the slideshow above to see all the best red carpet looks.Read More »from 10 Classy Red Carpet Hits from the 2014 Brit Awards

To be sure, Miuccia Prada has never been one to design for the "normals." Her clothes are anything but conventionally pretty; after all, we're talking about the woman who brought us, over the past few years, the bejeweled Teva sandal (Spring 2014), the bow-tied toe sock (Spring 2013) and the cropped bellbottom pant (Fall 2012).
So when I clicked over to Prada.com to take in the brand's Fall 2014 show via livestream earlier today, I was already prepared to see something thoroughly wacky. In fact, much of the collection was surprisingly subdued-lots of solid-colored cross-front satin dresses, V-neck chevron sweaters, skinny scarves and very wearable graphic prints. On the shoe front, there were beautiful strappy gold wedges I expect to see on every major editor the moment they hit the sales floor (or, let's be honest, perhaps even before).
And then there were the coats. The only possible way to describe the fur-trimmed peacoats and colorful shearlings Prada showedRead More »from Prada Fall 2014 is so Phoebe Buffay

After watching Jennifer Lawrence lovably goof off on the red carpet all awards season long, it's surprisingly refreshing to see J-Law looking soft and graceful. With one week to go before the Oscars, Dior revealed the 23-year-old's third Miss Dior campaign today-and it's much in the vein of J-Law's previous Dior ads, with the award-winning actress looking gorgeously gentle (if straight-faced) throughout. The shots, lensed by Patrick Demarchelier, feature windswept hair and minimal, nude makeup that contrasts the boyish looks plucked from the French fashion house's Spring 2014 collection.
According to WWD, Dior will be releasing a behind-the-scenes video on Wednesday in which Jennifer discussing the process of selecting her couture dress for the upcoming Oscars-very exciting stuff. "Now I get the haute couture thing," she reportedly says. "It's a big deal."
