Star Magazine Associate Beauty and Fashion Director Offers Style Inspiration From the Red Carpet
February 28,2011- From Natalie Portman’s glowing skin and her fashionable baby bump to Anne Hathaway’s classic Hollywood glamour, award season offers us more fashion inspiration than we know what to do with. What’s exciting is that there are ways to adapt that red carpet perfection to your personal style in your very own home. Taryn Adler is associate beauty and fashion director for Star Magazine says it’s possible for us to look as good as our favorite celeb even if we don’t have the team of stylists, make-up and hair professionals at our disposal. Taryn answers some of our red carpet style questions:
What were your favorite looks from the Oscars last night?Wow! What a night on the red carpet! I loved the intense eyes, the up-dos and the plush skin that looks super dewy and fresh. And even from the Golden Globes and the Grammys, Eva Longoria, and Jennifer Hudson looked amazing and really nailed the trends of the season. What’s really exciting though is that there are ways to adapt that red carpet perfection to your personal style.
How can we get inspired by our favorite celebs?Well keep in mind they these celebs have a team of experts to help them look this good from head to toe so we can all learn from their expertise to create a look that’s all your own, but inspirited by your favorite looks. One way to do that is through make-up and hair styles.
What are your favorite tips for great-looking skin? How about hair? Celebs are always looking for ways to look younger and so wrinkle fighting products are really important. Jennifer Aniston, Amanda Peet, Debra Messing, and Sheryl Crow are fans of the original Kinerase (Kine-er-ace) Skincare Line but they just came out with a new more drugstore line called Dr. LeWinn by Kinerase. They have an Instant Dermal Wrinkle Filler which diminishes the look of wrinkles in 10 minutes and the targeted applicator allows you to focus the potent formula on your most bothersome wrinkles. It has Kinetin (kine-it-tin) in it, which is a super anti-oxidant plant complex that stimulates cells at the deepest layers of skin’s surface to keep them healthier for longer. As a result, skin noticeably acts, looks and feels younger. The best part is that it’s super affordable at $25 and is available at select Walgreens and Walmart stores. You can learn more at www.drlewinnbykinerase.com.
When celebrities get dressed for the red carpet their hair look is almost always inspired by their dress – a vintage 70s dress may call for loose curls while a strapless gown may inspire an elaborate updo. No matter how you style your hair, color and shine are often a major influence on the look. For your hair to look vibrant and healthy, you have to start with a good foundation. Sebastian Professional is launching Color Ignite, is a new and unique collection of color care shampoos and conditioners that includes two separate regimens and the Smart Color Seal Complex to deliver specially-tailored results based on the coloring process used - Single Tone for single process hair and Multi Tone for highlights. So no matter how you color your hair, there’s a regimen for everyone. They’re available at salons nationwide and range from $15 - $17. You can visit www.sebastianprofessional.com to find a salon near you.
How can we get those Oscar worthy hair styles?As we’ve seen, up-dos are so elegant on the red carpet but who has the time or the money to go to the salon to get these looks? Now you can create red carpet-inspired up-dos in an easy effortless style, like a whimsical bun or even a twist up-do. The Goody Simple Styles collection offers a line of easy to use tools that help women finally achieve the hottest updos at home. The Spin Pin’s are hugely popular and actually do the work of 20 bobbie pins! And now for women with a shorter style, they are introducing these spin pin minis to create the perfect bun for everyone. The Spin Pin Mini also works well for a half up style on longer hair. They have step-by-step instructions and user-friendly product design so anyone can use them. They’re super fun and affordable and available at Walmart, Target and Walgreens. Go to www.goody.com for more.

How can we make sure our fashion choices are always “hits” instead of “misses?”The number one way to insure a “hit” on your own red carpet is radiate self-confidence. No matter what you wear, if you’re not comfortable and confident then it won’t matter at all. I always check out Star magazine to see who has a consistently good sense of style and then I try to immolate that look, while still being true to my personality and style.
