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."

You already know wearing white after Labor Day is cool. But menswear is reinventing itself rapidly, leaving some long-held mandates by the wayside, not to mention a bunch of men with a lot of questions. Sure, some style laws are truly inviolable. Showing a quarter-inch of cuff will always be crucial, but with designers and dandies flaunting so many former taboos it's hard to tell what's in play these days. So we thought we'd take this opportunity to let you know which rules no longer apply.
