Do or Don't: Orange Eyeshadow (Yep, I Said ORANGE! Emmy Rossum Dared To Wear It ... )
by Petra Guglielmetti, Glamour Magazine
When Beth posted about Emmy Rossum's lovely ponytail, blog commenter amoscari noted something else about the pretty starlet's look: "The hair looks nice but can we talk about her eyeshadow? It's ORANGE! Whaaat is up with that?"
Yes, it's true: Emmy did choose an unusual light-orange eyeshadow color for this pre-Oscars party.
A closer look:
It's not neon orange, but it's still a daring and unusual choice. Here's what Emmy's makeup artist, Amy Nadine, had to say about the look: "Emmy picked a gorgeous buttercup yellow Oliver Tolentino '50's-silhouette party dress that was made out of pineapple and hemp fibers for the Global Green Oscar Party, so I wanted to use Tarte, as it's my favorite green makeup line. Inspired by the sweetness of the dress's color and form, I chose a color palette of sherbets and bubble gum, perfectly suited for spring."

Three summers ago, I bought a pair of soft, white-calfskin Chanel loafers. I spent months trying to keep them pristine, but it wasn’t long before a July thunderstorm left them and me soaked. I began steeling myself for what I thought was inevitable: a solemn drop in the trash. But once the loafers dried, I found the shoes’ stained stitching—now storm-cloud gray—was lovely and a few new wrinkles in the leather were charming, like smile lines for shoes. I started to wear them freely—taking on puddles and tossing them onto the sand at the beach—and before long, they transformed. The roughened toe-tops reminded me of a welcoming, worn armchair, and a wet-and-hot summer had molded the material perfectly to my feet.
