“I love making women feel beautiful and empowered,” says Beauty Stylist Nadia Tyby at Nordstrom Fashion Island in Newport Beach, CA. “And everything about make-up is about a feeling.“ If, as the holiday season approaches, the feeling you’re going for is sparkly and bright, Tyby can help with that, too. The four-year Nordstrom beauty pro says she’s already got her favorite Adrianna Papell shimmering party dress primed for party duty, and she was more than happy  to turn us on to the three top tools in her glitter bag.

 

For the face: “I am obsessed with beautiful luminating skin. Shimmer Brick by Bobbi Brown is a perfect balance of shimmer and radiance leaving the skin looking healthy and youthful.”

For the eyes: “Adorn your eyes by pressing perfectly sparkly Mac Pressed Pigments onto the lids. Totally dresses up any outfit. Feeling a little sassy? Before applying your shadow, Spray Fix Plus on to your shadow brush and then pack that pigment on!”

For the lips:Dior Golden Shock – Addict is pretty amazing. It’s lightweight and plumping, creating fuller luscious lips that say ‘kiss me.’”

Oh Tina, how much do I love your style? Beaucoup! Tina Leung (Tina Loves) is one of those fashion stars by whom I am consistently inspired. Her style is so uniquely “Tina”, but is still approachable.

Today’s look is absolutely modern and chic. Her long navy one-piece has a sleek cut and structure. J’adore the hints of hardware on both her belt and jewelry. And of course, a red lip is always a good idea!

These young ladies radiate Parisian chic. Their personal styles are completely different, but blend together well. Lace is a major theme for the season, and this peek-a-boo style skirt is gorgeous. I love the white tee pairing, too. It’s casual and effortlessly cool. The sleeveless duster coat is bright and bold, and I am loving that sleek cut. There’s a great balance of modern and retro lines in these two looks. Merci les filles!

Harley Viera-Newton is flawless. I have such a style crush on her! The sweater dress is one of those things I always want to wear, but never take the plunge. Harley’s belted pastel look, however, has me ready to try again. Her metallic kitten heels are the perfect height to pair with her mini dress, and I love how her jeweled accents tie back to the silver heels. This is a retro modern feminine look—and a totally inspired one at that!

The scene outside Dior was utter mayhem, but Caroline was sweet enough to pause for a quick snap. The moto jacket is clearly here to stay for another season. This belted green style is a great update to the classic cut. The leather adds a nice hit of texture to Caroline’s floaty skirt and simple top. And we have to mention those amazing heels—so cheeky and fun!

Look who’s back to wow us once again with her flawless style: Miss Joanna Hillman! You all know how much of a style crush I have on the market editor of Harper’s Bazaar, and with good reason.

Joanna took on new denim and global themes at once with her amazing tasseled smock dress. Her modern gladiator sandal pairing is pitch-perfect, and Joanna’s trademark bold lip adds all the color she needs.

On the heels of opening night at the Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF), we had the fashion-film treat of a lifetime: a chance to watch a rare screening of the new documentary Dior and I, followed by an audience Q&A with director Frédéric Tcheng.

A quote from the July 2012 issue of Vogue, found on SIFF’s website, best describes the film’s ambitious premise: “If there’s ever been a show that the fashion world has waited with absolute bated breath to see, it’s this one: Raf Simons’ debut for Christian Dior.” Simons, best known for minimalist menswear, had a short eight weeks to create his first haute couture collection for the legendary French fashion house.

Keep reading for insights straight from the source—director Frédéric Tcheng—on how he was able to document this pivotal moment in fashion history.

We may be halfway around the world, but I still managed to track down two of our favorite blog babes: Chriselle Lim & Aimee Song! These two are consistently flawless.

While Chriselle is working a prep school chic vibe, Aimee went for edgy lady. The full, pleated skirt is a big hit here in Paris, and these two lovelies are the perfect poster girls!

Bonjour, mes amis! I’m back and having a blast in Paris, thanks to the amazing style of ladies like Laetitia. Paris is the absolute perfect place to get fashion inspiration.

I will definitely be copying this look, head to toe. I love suiting, and the cozy grey palette gives Laetitia an air of casual cool that is effortlessly chic. Now all I need is to find that perfect shade of red lipstick!
