  • Statement-Making Holiday Beauty Tips

    It's the most wonderful time of the year! No, not the holidays--holiday parties! You may already have your outfits planned for the numerous get-togethers on your schedule, but have you figured out your statement-making beauty looks to go with them? We're highlighting the eye-catching beauty tips and trends that will make you truly sparkle this season.

    For work-related events - You don't want a look that's too out there--focus on sophistication with a touch of glamour. Always remember to apply moisturizer before any sort of foundation, ensuring a smooth base. Try an eyeshadow in either gold, brown, or silver, depending on skin tone, and stick to neutral lip shades close to your natural lip color. Vamp it up with eyeliner and a heavy coat of mascara on top and lower lashes. For hair, test drive the down 'do with a side-swept and modern version of a French twist. Be sure to try a tailored pair of printed pants with a simple tank and a tuxedo blazer for an authoritative yet festive holiday Read More »from Statement-Making Holiday Beauty Tips
  • Amp Up Your Holiday Party Style

    After your fourth eggnog-and-champagne-fueled holiday bash of the season, you may feel like branching out from your usual hair and makeup routine. Celebrity stylist Robin Watson (and three beautiful viewers) are here to help with three different hairstyles and makeup trends that will have you feeling festive and flirty in no time. Which holiday style will you test drive?

    Try: A darker hue - What better time than winter to warm up your look with a darker shade? Try Clairol's Nice N' Easy in a dark caramel color for an effortless change at salon quality.

  • What's THE Color for 2013?

    No need to walk down any yellow brick roads--in 2013, every city is an emerald city! The Pantone Color Institute annually scours the world for inspiration in order to bring us their official color of the year and in 2013 it's bright, flattering emerald. A rich color that inspires insight and promotes balance and harmony, Lee Eiseman, Executive Director at Pantone, says this color is appropriate for 2013 because it promotes change, renewal, and clarity in a complex world, but we love it for its style cred! Celebs from Kate Middleton to Kristin Wiig have already been spotted in this bright jewel tone, and our host Jessica Stam has all the best (and affordable) emerald picks for your closet this year!

  • Even Victoria's Secret Angels Have Bieber Fever

    Every year, the gorgeous ladies of Victoria's Secret strut down the catwalk at the lingerie brand’s annual fashion show—strutting down the catwalk in the brand’s hottest new designs. This year, it ws every bit the spectacle with stars like Rihanna and Justin Bieber performing alongside the sexy bras, underwear, and magical costumes as they worked their way down the runway. Tragedy struck, though, when 2,700 hours of personal footage was stolen of the Angels with Justin Bieber. Luckily for you, The Thread has done some recon work, and we recovered the film in all of its glory. No need to thank us.

  • Kelly Clarkson Talks Greatest Hits, First Grammys Disaster, and Burning Her Heels

    Former "American Idol" winner Kelly Clarkson sat down with The Thread to talk style evolution, her fashion crush on Taylor Swift (we're with you on that one, Kelly!), and her burning hatred of high heels. Currently pulling double duty as a mentor on “The Voice” and judging the ABC singing competition “Duets,” her greatest hits album is coming out November 19th.

    Despite her many public appearances, the singer still insists "my style is weird...I love dresses, but I wear my jeans and my boots every day!" Now, Clarkson owns the red carpet like a champ, but when she was just starting out, some red carpet appearances cause the singer to look back with regret. Like her first ever Grammys in 2004, where even though her gown was elegant, heavy makeup and overlong hair extensions made her look twice her age. Take a look, she's only 22 there!

    Ever humble, Clarkson credits her stylists with allowing her to grow as a fashion star and with accommodating her atypical desire to ditch high heels Read More »from Kelly Clarkson Talks Greatest Hits, First Grammys Disaster, and Burning Her Heels
