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."

When Madonna posted an image of herself wearing a full on Game of Thrones Khaleesi costume on Instagram last week we weren’t exactly surprised—this is the woman who rolled into the Grammy Awards wearing a tuxedo and a grill earlier this winter, so why not celebrate the Jewish holiday of Purim with a leather corset and a pair of tiny dragons? Still, we were hypnotized by her white-blonde, braided Daenerys Targaryen hair. Functioning as a bleached out cultural weather vane of sorts, it tapped into multiple obsessions at once—the return of "Game of Thrones" to HBO, spring’s new extreme hair lengths and, most notably, fashion’s current platinum mania. Our own love of ice-blonde hair—which transforms any look from everyday to extraordinary—has been well documented of late, but last night’s Game of Thrones premiere sent our platinum fever into overdrive.
