Kate Middleton shows us that sparkles are the way to go for a big night out
The new mom went with her tried and true designer, Jenny Packham.
So Duchess Kate has been quite busy as of late, you know, with newborn baby Prince George and a hubby who works crazy hours. Aside from a quick casual public appearance where she impressed with a chic business-casual look, she hasn't had much time for a big outing. Until last night, that is, when Duchess Kate made a splash seen around the world in the most dazzling type of look a girl could go for: gilded sequins.
The new mom went with her tried and true designer, Jenny Packham, but not in one of these off-the-runway creations—Kate's sequin-encrusted champagne gown is custom. Perks of a princess, no doubt. She finished off the look with a pair of matching Jimmy Choo platform sandals and a regally blingtastic diamond bracelet. Absolutely stunning. So lesson learned: For a memorable night out, go for metallic and sparkles. Oh, and a prince as your date can't hurt, either.

You can rent a couture dress or a designer bag, but would you rent hair extensions?
To get the scoop on quick office party beauty tricks, we turned to Landy Dean, celebrity makeup artist at Marie Robinson salon. His simple tutorial requires only a handful of products, starting with the darkest, inkiest eyeliner you can find. Dean swears by the Nars Larger Than Life liners smudged over the waterline and lashline, topped off with a few coats of Maybelline The Falsies mascara. Before you dash off to apply product, there’s one small step that involves removing makeup. “If your foundation and concealer have caked or creased, I recommend a quick removal with a cleansing towelette and a redo to avoid heavy looking skin,” he cautions. For those who would prefer to go the easy route, apply a hydrating moisturizer using a stippling motion and a sponge. Finish the look with a dusting of BareMinerals Mineral Veil—“this will even out discolorations and give a reflective finish that still looks natural”—swap your work bag for a chic clutch, and get ready to ring in the season.
