Glee Actress Lea Michele On The Cover Of Allure December 2011 Issue

Lea Michele: Her Allure Photo Shoot

Lea Michele bares it all: the Glee rumors, what it was like to strip down on stage, and why she’s proud to be a diva. Check out these exclusive behind-the-scenes photos from her cover shoot with Norman Jean Roy. For more of our interview with the star, pick up the December issue of Allure, on newsstands November 22. For more exclusives, like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.


Michele is confident in her unconventional beauty. “Have I been asked to change anything? Uh-huh. Uh-huh. When I was 15, my mother and I went to meet a manager who said, ‘You have to get a nose job in order for me to work with you,'” Michele tells us. “My mother would say to me, ‘Barbra Streisand never got a nose job. You’re not getting a nose job.’ And this was before I really even knew who Barbra was. I just knew that she was, like, the messiah for girls like me.”

Michele has heard the stories of her diva-like behavior. At a Time magazine party, when a photographer asked who she was, she reportedly replied, “Sarah Palin”—a remark that was taken to be a snotty “Don’t you know who I am?” “I was being silly,” Michele says. “But anyway, that’s a huge thing I learned…. Not everybody knows you and has the same sense of humor. At the same time, if I couldn’t be myself, I’d lose my mind.”

“I came from the theater world, where the word ‘diva’ was awesome,” she continues. “But it’s different in Los Angeles. And this all happened to me so quickly. But I came to L.A., and the first audition I went on was for Glee. And I was on the show two months later and had a very different life.” Here, Michele poses in a lace-and-silk-satin bra by Agent Provocateur and Norma Kamali briefs.

Like many young actresses in the spotlight, Michele became the subject of eating-disorder rumors when she suddenly looked very thin during the summer of 2010. Not so, she says—the weight loss was due to a surgery she had because of an infection in her jaw. “I’m half Italian,” says the actress. “I can eat some bitches under the table.” Polyamide elastane bra by Stella McCartney.

Celebrity Beauty Trend

How to achieve Lea Michele’s look- Celebrity Beauty Fashion Trend: Winged Eyeliner

Here are a few tips:

1.) Fill in your brows, no sexy eye is complete without a nice thick brow

2.) Find a good liquid or cream liner. Use a small pointed brush or a pointed eyeliner pencil or pen.  Also, by using a black eyeshadow to start the wing off before using the eyeliner. Starting your liner at the corner of the eyelid extending it outward to the corner of your eye ending it with a wing out movement.  Then go back over the eyeshadow with a liquid eyeliner to seal in the look.

3.) Dramatic eyes call for a nude lip. Keep it classy and sassy. Keeping lips simple and putting  focus only on the eyes not the mouth.

4.) Curling large sections of your hair with a small barrel curling iron,  then comb lightly comb the curls out and spray with a light hairspray. To avoid frizzy curls finish off the look with some shine serum or shine spray of your choice.

Jimmy Choo Re-Issuing ‘The Feather Shoe’ Worn In Sex In The City By Carrie Bradshaw

13 Oct Jimmy-Choos-Feathered-Shoe-100232

London-based luxury shoe brand Jimmy Choo are celebrating their 15th birthday by re-issuing a range of iconic shoes and a coffee table book, with proceeds from sales going to charity.

Amongst the range of 15 shoes from the Choo archives are ‘the Feather’, a pair which Carrie famously lost in the early episodes of Sex and the City, and ‘Fleur’, a pair of striped heels embellished with a large flower which Jimmy Choo co-founder Tamara Mellon wore when she received her OBE from the Queen. Mellon told WWD: “These are shoes that have a personal story for me, or resonate with the customer.”

Ten percent of proceeds from the ‘Icons’ shoes will go to the Jimmy Choo Foundation, a charity which tackles women’s issues such as sexism, domestic violence and the sex slave trade.

A coffee table book of Jimmy Choo’s history will accompany the classic shoes, as well as a mainly photographic book called ‘Jimmy Choo XV’ that tells the company’s history through 15 iconic shoes. 100 percent of the proceeds from the book will go to the Jimmy Choo Foundation.

The Icons collection and Jimmy Choo history books are set to hit stores in November.

  • About Temperley

    Temperley London celebrates its 10th anniversary year in 2011 with its namesake creative director, Alice Temperley, MBE, heading up the House of Temperley with a design signature that has made her one of the most distinctive voices in contemporary British fashion.

    Alice Temperley’s timeless, feminine designs combine meticulous detail and embellishments with an English eccentricity and personality drawing on everything British; Temperley is the modern day ‘Cool Britannia’.

    Following the success of the launch collection in 2000 at London Fashion Week, the first Temperley London boutique opened in 2001 on Colville Mews in Notting Hill, London where the head office and design rooms are still situated.

    This year sees the first year anniversary of ALICE by Temperley, a contemporary sister line created to fulfill a need for an everyday Temperley look in a more accessible market.

  • Bridal has grown to be an important part of the Temperley offering after the first bridal dresses were created following Alice’s own wedding to Lars Von Bennigsen, the CEO of Temperley Ltd, in 2002. There are now exclusive Bridal Salons in the London Mews and Los Angeles, Melrose Avenue stores with a full bridal collection of bespoke, made-to-order and current collection pieces, for private appointments only.

    The House of Temperley has also expanded into lifestyle with Temperley scented candles and has plans to move into homewear, menswear and childrenswear.

    The House produces 13 collections a year including; Cruise and Pre-Fall across the Temperley London and diffusion ALICE by Temperley line and 2 made-to-order bridal collections a year and key collaborations with leading British names such as the launch of Barbour Gold Label by Temperley in 2011.

  • The company operates 3 stand alone stores in London, Los Angeles and Dubai, and online stores for both lines at: temperleylondon.com and alicebytemperley.com. The lines are also currently available in over 200 doors across 35 countries worldwide.

    The past ten years have earned the House of Temperley critical acclaim and devoted fans around the world, dressing Royalty to the red carpet. Amongst many others, Temperley London fans include; Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, Pippa Middleton, Demi Moore, Jennifer Lopez, Heidi Klum, Reese Witherspoon and Claudia Schiffer. ALICE by Temperley has been worn by a range of fans including Emma Watson, Jessica Biel, Beyonce, Rihanna and Dakota Fanning.

  • While constantly being expanded in breadth, the House of Temperley always stays true to its philosophy; appreciating what women want with creations that exist outside of the trend of the moment and always flavoured with a sense of Alice’s individual ‘magpie’ style.

    The World of Temperley and its design philosophy is set to extend its influence, transforming it from one of Britain’s leading luxury brands to an all-encompassing lifestyle.

Fashion Show: Shop Dolce Gabbana Summer Collection 2012 Online ‘Must Haves’

23 Sep Dolce-Gabbana-SS12-Must-Haves-800515

Photos Dolce Gabbana


If you could distil the D&G SS12 Womens wear show what essence would you get? Foulard’s. These traditional, sometimes oldy-worldly accessories have been totally reinvented by Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana and have become sexy and relevant once again.

The D&G collection for SS 12 is a real plethora of prints. From geometric to heraldic, from baroque to naïf, passing by polka dolts and stripes, the foulard, in its many forms has been adopted by the design duo and reinvented for 2012. With the idea of deconstructing the typically bourgeois silk handkerchief and challenging its traditional use, Dolce and Gabbana have created a significant collection with strong cultural overtones.

Taking the foulard in its purest form, (each swatch measures the traditional 70x70cm), as the foundation of the collection, the Italian design duo have created a visual feast. Unlike previous collections where mix and matching were at their centre, this season the effect is less like patchwork and more about actually tying together multiple handkerchiefs, lending it a more cerebral feel. Details like folds and knots take the collection away from the banal, giving it a fresh angle.

Worthy of particular mention are the sky-high platform wedges. The upper is made of an entire foulard; 70×70, which tied around the foot becomes a silky, light as a feather peep toe bootie. In contrast, the wedge is made of wood and is printed with a different style.  Dolce Gabbana.IT
