Oscars 2011: Red Carpet, Part Three

Oscars red carpet, part three.

The fave here is... Reese Witherspoon's ponytail. And Celine Dion's tight-fitting sheath.

On another note: what is Sharon Stone doing there? And when will Gwyneth Paltrow succumb to the pleasures of a full, hearty meal?

Oscars 2011: Red Carpet, Part Two

Oscars red carpet, 2011 and there are only two words... Mila Kunis.

This actress has really come into her own this awards season. Every dress she's worn has been heaven. This one is no exception: a lavender, lacy concotion from Elie Saab Haute Couture.

Another fave is the dress worn by Jennifer Lawrence, the actress from the movie Winter's Bone.

She wore a bright red Calvin Klein Collection dress, made for her by Francisco Costa and it is so on the mark for one reason alone: it's simple. She lets the dress - and her luminous beauty and killer bod - do that talking. A winner.

Who are your favourites?

Oscars 2011: Red Carpet, Part One

The Oscars 2011 red carpet is here!

This year's offerings are the same as last year, ie, the stars are styled within an inch of their lives so they rarely set a foot wrong.

What do you think? Who is your fave?

Mine are mummy-related: the va-va-voom Penelope Cruz and the mum-to-be gorgeousness of Natalie Portman.

Another fave is ScarJo. I know she will be panned, but that new blunt haircut and bold makeup is such a winner...

Funnily, all three chose a hue from the same colour family of purple... guess what the hottest trend will be this winter...?

Joy Jewellery Charity Bracelet

The Joy Jewellery brand has launched a new charity bracelet in support of cervical and ovarian cancer.

Many women in Indonesia are faced with poverty, illness and hardship. A foundation has been established to support women who can not afford basic medical treatments, such as pap tests.

This foundation sets up clinics throughout remote villages and offer local women the opportunity to be checked and provided with adequate medical care if they present with dangerous cells.

Joy Jewellery has created this gorgeous wooden bead, pearl and sterling silver charm bracelet in support.

Profits of all sales of this bracelet go directly to this worthy cause - a stylish piece and you're aiding something seriously important. Love shopping with conscience...

Gwyneth Paltrow - Harper's Bazaar UK, March 2011

In the latest issue of Harper's Bazaar UK, Gwyneth Paltrow looks gorgeous, photographed by Alexi Lubomirski and styled by Sophia Neophitou-Apostolou. Gwyneth wears Gucci, Tom Ford, Dolce & Gabbana and Louis Vuitton.

Inside the magazine, Gwyneth talks about her live performance at the Country Music Awards, living in the UK, and her lifestyle newsletter GOOP.

She says, "Any time you do anything with any degree of sincerity, people make fun of you. That’s totally fine. I don’t care. I don’t read any of it. My thing with Goop has always been, if you don’t like it, then don’t log onto it. There were a couple of times when I thought 'I’m just gonna stop doing it. People are so mean to me. I don’t want to do it.' But then I was like, 'Who cares what some lame person out there says?' I was in Italy once, and this old man came up to me and said, 'I had the best time in Nashville because of Goop.' And that is so worth it to me."

Paltrow says she loves living in the UK, but also misses America. "In England, people are cool. They're really laid back and calm. Beyonce did the school run with me once, and everyone was fine. They also have really good anti-paparazzi rules. If you're driving in a car and they make you feel freaked out, that's against the law. They can't put you in a magazine unless they pixelate the kids' faces. I miss America, but I love living in the UK."

Park Street: Social Pics, Bambini Trust Restaurant and Wine Room

The launch party for the premiere episode of Arena's new reality show Park Street was held at ACP haunt Bambini Trust Restaurant and Wine Room last night.

Attendees included ACP stalwart Deborah Thomas, Channel Nine CEO David Gyngell, Foxtel regulars Laura Dundovic and James Kerley, Tim 'Rosso' Ross and his wife, PR Michelle Glew, and the PR supremo behind the hugely successful Cleo 'Swimsuit Issue' party held at Ivy, Roxy Jacenko from Sweaty Betty PR.

Of course, the editors of the magazines showcased on the show were there, and no doubt lots of chatter about the show premiering later that evening.

The first episode of Park Street was said to deliver less than stellar ratings, though for hardcore magazine aficionados (er, that'd be me) it was a pleasure to watch and I want my next instalment, stat...

Bella Bamba: Benefit 3D Brilliance

Benefit Cosmetics is renowned for their little box-o-powder wonders, and now they're introducing Bella Bamba – a face powder with a 3D brightening effect.

3D ain't just for the big screen, baby...

The shimmering gold undertones of this watermelon powder gives you a triple dimension pop of pink... it brightens! It sculpts! It defines!

I am already a bit addicted to the gorgeous flush it gives cheeks (it smells nice, too).

Add a slick of neutral lip gloss, a brush of black, black mascara (I am partial to Benefit's Bad Gal Lash), and you are good to go.

Bella Bamba is on shelf from this Saturday 26 February, 2011
RRP: $51
