Another year has come and gone and fashion’s elite have made their mark, some great and some not so great! Celebrities and socialites have paraded their ensembles for us to swoon over and have sent us to the mall on numerous occasions trying to replicate what we’ve seen. At the end of the year, I usually can narrow it down to my top 5 fashion crushes, not this time….. This year 7 fashionistas are deserving of this honor!
What does it take to make my best dressed list? Being original, confident, fashion forward and rockin’ your own style throughout every season and looking great while doing it!

I am so excited to wear bold lip colors this Fall. I wear lip color year round but I usually stick to nudes, peaches, corals and pinks in the warmer months. Every September I incorporate my wine hued favorites and shop for any new ones that spark my interest. I literally discovered these Wet n wild shades from a friend three days ago and I’m hooked! In this particular post I will focus on my favorite 5 reds. A crimson kiss looks great on all skin tones and works any time of day or night. With this bold lip I do go light on my eye makeup during the day to keep a nice balance and I save the “crazy” eye for the evening i.e.. heavy on the shadow and or eyeliner etc.
My favorite 5.
Red can be scary at first but just try it on at the makeup counter, they will always let you sample some (make sure they shave the top layer off first, they are used to this request)
New to the whole red lip look? Start with a sheer coverage like the Givenchy, it’s slightly pearlescent and lightly tints the lips.
Want to dive right into the red? Then the other 4 choices below are for you. They are true to tube color providing pigment rich intense color payoff, yes even the dollar ones are amazing! I promise!
Givenchy Rouge Interdit in Raspberry Shine ($30)
Wet n wild Silk Finish in Cherry Frost 514A (99¢) Also available at drug stores.
Wet n wild SilkFinish in Just Garnet 552A (99¢)
NYC Ultra Moist Lipwear in Retro Red (99¢) Also available at drug stores.
MAC Satin Lipcolor in Rebel ($15)
Inspiration……. from cherry red to deep bordeoux…….these colors look great on everyone!

Rumor has it Anna Wintour is putting Lady Gaga on the most coveted cover in all of fashion, Vogue‘s September issue! Is it true?????? Sounds like a dream
shoot to me! Last time Gaga graced the March 2011 Vogue cover, it was the second best-selling issue that year. I think she’ll get the #1 spot this time.
