Looks we Love: Oscar Girls Bringing Sexy Back

Shopping News March 01, 2013

Okay so you know where we are going with this one. We are of course talking about low back dresses. The kind of design that's a superbly sexy yet still sophisticated way to reveal some skin. Anne Hathaway's pink Prada Oscars dress looked quite prim and proper from the front, but as soon as she turned around, the cross over straps and ribbon detail at her lower back was quite the pièce de résistance of her dress design. Rita Ora opted for something very similar in peach at the Birts. For the best selection of sexy back dresses, shop the look at Nelly below!

Adele's Amazing £7.99 Oscar Beauty Secret

beauty news February 27, 2013

We loved the make-up worn at the Oscars as much as the dresses, in particular Adele's enviable flawless beauty! So, we were pretty excited to hear her make-up artist Michael Ashton reveal some of the products he used on Adele for the ceremony, which happened to include a great value Maybelline Gel Liner (£7.99). Michael of course also used a host of other fabulous face products including a number by Giorgio Armani. He told The Huffington Post about Adele's make-up look:

"Beautiful brows can make the most of your look. Brush them into place using a clear brow gel and then using feather strokes, fill and define with Giorgio Armani Brow Defining Pencil. Create a sultry eye by highlighting and contouring the socket with Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Quad #6. Then, extend the eye line with Maybelline Gel Liner and pump up lashes with Lancôme Hypnôse Mascara."
