MAC Viva Glam

I'm loving MAC's new Viva Glam with Lady Gaga. It falls in line with everything that I've been reading about in the magazines for Spring - muted pink lips. Love it. The best part, MAC Viva Glam sales goes toward the MAC AIDS Funds. Shop for a good cause.

Glamour's March Cover Girl: Diane Kruger

Diane Kruger is the March Glamour girl. Here are some excerpts from her interview:

On her love of fashion…
“I truly, genuinely like clothes. Making them is an art form, and wearing them is a form of self-expression. I find it very emotional because I can remember moments in my life—my mood, how I felt—through these clothes.”

On what her favorite look is…
“A well-cut dress. It’s all about the cut. I love three-quarter sleeves. I definitely like it classic; less is more. The thing I despise most is vulgarity, and there’s a lot of that here [in L.A.].”

On her biggest fashion splurge…
“The biggest fashion purchase I ever made I thought about for six years. I’m not kidding. All my life I wanted to own an Hermès Constance bag, and when I signed with Calvin Klein, I decided this was the time that I could afford it. I truly broke a sweat when I paid for it.”

On her boyfriend Joshua Jackson and his style…
“We go shopping. But he likes it. I definitely wasn’t fond of these blue sneakers that he wore all the time for about a year and a half.”

On realizing she wanted to pursue performing as a career…
“I’m from a small village [in Germany], and it never occurred to me that you could actually make a living performing. It was a hobby. I always thought you had to live in Hollywood. So the urge really came later, when I became a model.”

On marrying and divorcing when she was younger…
“Without sounding pessimistic, I learned that I don’t believe in marriage. I believe in a commitment that you make in your heart. There’s no paper that will make you stay.”

Her advice to young women pursuing their dreams…
“Ask questions. Surround yourself with people who will help you advance. You should be smart enough to know that you don’t know everything. But you have to believe in yourself. I certainly do.”

Wet N Wild Cares

Press Release:
For many teens who dream of a magical prom, the reality can be disenchanting: low funding can lead to drab décor, dispiriting tunes and disagreeable munchies for a night destined to be remembered in shades of gray.

The value-driven, color-wowing, always-fabulous cosmetics brand has made its mark turning everyday into a glamorous day–and prom is no exception. In January 2011, wet n wild® launches wet n wild® CARES, a nationwide charity program to support proms at 10 deserving high schools.

wet n wild® CARES will provide 10 high schools with $1,000 to make their prom dreams a reality. Starting January 21, 2011, schools can enter online at or via email to In a letter, video or however they desire, schools will explain their need and why they deserve a sponsorship for their prom. In addition to the monetary donation, wet n wild® will give all of the selected schools $1,000 worth of makeup–hot products in hot, hot shades to get the party started. Entries are due by March 4, 2011. Winning schools will be announced on March 11, 2011 and will be featured on wet n wild®‘s website, which will display photos from the big bashes and glamorized students using wet n wild® swag.

During the submission process, schools will also encourage students to sign up as wet n wild® VIPs. This completely free program delivers the inside scoop on all things wet n wild®!
