    Style star to watch: Nicola Peltz's hottes fashion moments

    Beauty in blue! Nicola pulled out all the stops for this week's New York premiere of Transformers in a sparkly, slinky blue strapless gown. Lest you think the appeal of this stunner stopped there, the gown's back featured a complex cross between a bow and a peplum. So cool, right?

    Celebrity hairstylist Adir Abergel created Nicola's glam waves using KMS California products. Adir started with a touch of KMS California FREESHAPE for a quick blow-dry from roots to ends to speed up the blowout process and to protect her locks from heat damage. To ensure lasting hold, Adir treated Nicola's roots with KMS California ADDVOLUME root and body lift.

    Using a round brush to add bounce, shine and smoothness, Adir blow-dried locks and then used Velcro rollers throughout the top of hair to set her blowout. With the rest of the hair that wasn't set, he sprayed KMS California FREESHAPE 2-in-1 styling + finishing spray to really lock in the waves.

    Next, Adir used a large 1-1/4-inch curling iron to create loose waves in the section of hair that was down. After taking out the Velcro rollers, he sprayed KMS CaliforniaFREESHAPE 2-in-1 styling + finishing spray and parted the hair down the middle. To frame Nicola's face and create a slight wave, Adir repeated the same waving technique as before. For the finishing touches, Adir spritzed locks with KMS California HAIRSTAY maximum hold spray.

    Nicola has been traveling all around the world to promote Transformers and has been racking up some style miles all the while. At the Hong Kong premiere for the film, she selected a beautiful blue gown with jewels around the halter neckline and the waist and a daring cutout at the bust.

    In Shanghai for another Transformers premiere, Nicola turned heads in a transparent white gown featuring a bold peplum, a cascading train and detailed embellishment at the bust. We love how she paired the look with laissez-faire messy hair and smoldering makeup.

    Nicola's lingerie-inspired cream dress took on a boho feel thanks to asymmetrical detailing and a sheer bottom. Beachy waves and simple pumps dressed up the look a bit.

    You can never go wrong with a classic LBD. Nicola spiced up her V-neck version with bold embellished shoulders, an edgy side braid and glowing skin.

    In a white crop top and matching pencil skirt, Nicola looked ready for summer at this year's Kids' Choice Awards. Her piecey locks and strappy sandals complemented the warm weather look beautifully.

    While taking in the Stella McCartney Autumn 2014 presentation, Nicola posed for the cameras in a flirty black and white fit and flare dress. We loved her red envelope clutch and soft curls equally as much as the dress itself.

    When in Paris... dress to impress. Nicola did just that at the fall/winter 2014-2015 Louis Vuitton show in an oxblood cape, black leather thigh-high boots and shiny locks. Très chic, no?

    There's that beautiful smile. The often serious Nicola breaks a smile for the cameras at the Miu Miu show outside Paris Fashion Week. We adore her geometric coat and cute half updo, but think her smile's definitely her best accessory.

    Obsessed doesn't begin to describe how we feel about this look. The complex print on the dress, the unique sleeve detail, the sheer cutouts... we could go on for days. And those shoes are basically in a league of their own. Can we borrow them sometime, Nicola?

    Woman getting a breast facial

    Photo credit: Stills/E+/Getty Images

    Yep, "breacials" (breast facials) are now a thing being offered at several salons and dermatologists' offices. But do breast facials offer the same kind of benefits for your tatas or are they just a kooky new trend?

    A breast facial is a massage of the breast tissue and surrounding areas, often used in conjunction with lotions, masks and oils. But it isn't cheap. Graceful Services, who calls it "facial breast lifting," offers an 80-minute session for $100. (Is it just me or does getting your breasts rubbed for 80 minutes sound like a really long time?) If you want to get a little more aggressive, WonderLift adds vacuum suction, followed by micro-current and light therapies to "rejuvenate" breasts.

    It's not just about looks though. Practitioners claim that not only will it make your decolletage glow but it can help drain your lymphatic system and even make your breasts perkier and less sensitive. "Lymphatic breast massage" has been used by holistic docs for quite a while as a way to detox, and plain breast massaging has been recommended for generations for a variety of ailments from breast tenderness to mastitis during breastfeeding. Plus it seems like one of those things that can't hurt and might help, so why not?

    Of course the million dollar question is whether or not it works. As a woman who's birthed five kids, my lady lumps could definitely use some TLC and if it made them a little less, well, lumpy then so much the better.

    Ashley Hoffman wrote about her experience getting one for Styleite and concluded, "After my 45-minute fondling session, gravity still worked. My tits were at the same level they were in the picture I took 24 hours before. But when I walked to a party that night, I noticed a considerable difference in how they felt. No more tension. Thanks to the massage, they weren't weighing me down anymore. When someone "accidentally" bumped into me on the subway, I didn't feel like I was being twisted in a juicer. I felt liberated when I shot down the stairs at the bar without the painful bounce I was used to. I went into this because I was curious about how weird it would be, but it worked."

    Well that does make me want to skip the subway but I'm not sure I'm sold on the breacial idea. I don't think that women's breasts should have to look "perfect" to be beautiful and the ideal of unblemished, full, bouncing boobs can make women feel ashamed. But if you have a specific problem with your breasts like tenderness or soreness, it might be a nice temporary relief. (Of course if your breasts continue to be painful, see a doctor to get them checked out.)

    I tend to neglectfully pass what's already in my closet because I'm constantly trying to check off something from my wish list. We all know things start to get old and tired to us, and sadly sometimes you may just forget what you have. Trying to rejuvenate older clothes can be underwhelming, but once you really take a deep breath and weed through the mess, there are some true gems lying right there for you. I like to call it the closet remix. Taking what you already own and remixing it with other pieces to create an entire new look. It's refreshing and keeps our creative juices flowing.

    In this segment, I show you how I used three of my favorite items from my closet and styled them three different ways. You know those statement pieces we all have or even the "favorite printed dress" or "jeans" we never want to depart from? I put myself to the challenge and remixed my floral mini dress, skinny white jeans, and black jumpsuit for new and improved ensembles. It was a lot of fun and now I know that I don't need to run to the store to get that new skirt for dinner every time the opportunity presents itself. Let's work with what we own and make it the best possible outfit.

    Floral Dress

    Prim & Proper - I wore this dress with pink embellished flats, statement necklace, and navy blue bag. Great day time look for the classy girl.

    Western Grunge - Laid back with a pair of fringe booties takes this bright floral dress down a notch and lends it's festival appeal easily.

    Retro Mod - The platforms and blue turban took this modern dress straight to the 60's era. One of my favorite looks.

    White Jeans

    Sexy Date Night - Throw on a mini-dress over your ankle gazing skinny jeans for a unexpected pairing. Black and white is perfect for a night on the town.

    Preppy - Dress down your jeans with an adorable color block sweater and a little peek of plaid.

    Safari Chic - Go on the wild side with a wide brim hat and camouflage jacket.

    Black Jumpsuit

    Minimalist - Keep it simple with a layered heather gray shirt and classic aviators. A sleek pump or sandal will do the trick also.

    Glam - A little bling goes a long way. It's all in the accessories when you are wearing a sexy pantsuit.

    Bohemian Luxe - Stay relaxed in a pair of embellished flats and beaded jewelry.

    White Jeans: Levi's Curve

    Jumpsuit: Zara

    Floral Dress: Marshalls

    Curl hair to add life to the style, grab a section of hair spray with a texturizing spray or a teasing spray ( Redken Quick tease) backcomb then spread the section on each side to shape the style. By doing this it will create volume and height giving the illusion of shorter layers.

    Looking to take your boring bun to new heights? This braided crown and rolled bun updo goes from day to night.

    Messy bun with hair chalk

    Braid bun

    1. Begin by parting your hair to one side.

    Braid bun

    2. Use a piece of red, white or blue hair chalk to color a small section at your bang area. TIP: It's best to wet the hair before you chalk — it helps chalk color adhere to hair.

    Braid bun

    3. Coat the next three sections of hair with the other chalk colors.

    Braid bun

    4. Next, braid the chalked hair down along your hairline, bringing it around to the back of your head and clip it to temporarily hold it in place.

    Braid bun

    Braid bun

    5. Repeat the same braid on the opposite side of your head.

    Braid bun

    6. Bring all your hair to one side and wrap the second braid around the bulk of your hair (so the braid appears to be holding all your hair as a ponytail holder would). Bobby-pin the braid into place to secure it. TIP: Hide bobby pins for the best look.

    Braid bun

    7. Color the remaining hair in the "ponytail" with the hair-chalk colors.

    Braid bun

    8. Wrap this remaining hair into a messy bun and tie it off with a ponytail holder. Tweak hair pieces so that the ponytail holder doesn't show and all you see is the braid holding the bun hair.

    Braid bun

    This is a quick, easy way to look like you did something intricate and complicated.

    Braided bun with hair chalk

    Bun

    1. Gather all your hair into a high ponytail and secure with a ponytail holder. Then section out one large piece of hair and let it hang out. Roll the remaining hair into a bun (secure it with bobby pins if needed).

    Bun

    2. Split the hanging section of hair into three equal parts.

    Bun

    3. Use a piece of your 4th of July-colored hair chalk and chalk each section a different color (one section will be red, one will be blue and one will be white).

    Bun

    Bun

    Bun

    4. Once all three parts are colored with hair chalk, braid this section of hair. Tie your hair off at the end with a clear elastic hair tie.

    Bun

    5. Wrap the colored braid around your bun and secure them with bobby pins. Tweak the braid around the bun so it stays put and looks full and thick around the bun.

    Bun

    Hair chalked hair bow

    Hair Bow

    1. First, grab two small sections of hair around your face — you'll be working on one and clipping back the other.

    Hair Bow

    2. In the hanging section of hair, start halfway to 3/4 of the way down, depending on your hair length, and color it with red hair chalk. TIP: You may need to give the hair you're about to color a light mist of water — this will help the color adhere to the hair.

    Hair Bow

    3. Color the other section with blue hair chalk.

    Hair Bow

    4. Once both sections are fully colored, bring them to the back of your head. Grab a clear elastic band and begin to tie your hair off.

    Hair Bow

    5. As you're tying, don't pull your hair all the way through the loop — leave the majority of your hair hanging out.

    Hair Bow

    6. Separate each color of the hanging hair and pull out the red section to one side. Bobby-pin the red side so that the back of the "bow" is flat to your head (this is where the bobby pins will go, so they'll be hidden). Pin slowly and strategically until it starts to take the shape of a bow. Use hair spray to keep it in place.

    Hair Bow

    7. Repeat the same to the blue side and use hair spray to keep it in place.

    Hair Bow

    8. Wrap the hanging hair up and over in between the two colors. This will complete your bow.

    Hair Bow

    Hair-chalked rope braid

    Rope Braid

    1. You may want to throw on gloves — hair chalking can get messy.

    Rope Braid

    2. With water, lightly mist a small section of hair around your face.

    Rope Braid

    3. Starting halfway down the hair, color that section with red hair chalk.

    Rope Braid

    4. Repeat this process on the other side of your face with the red hair chalk.

    Rope Braid

    5. Color the next small section back behind the red section with light blue hair chalk.

    6. Repeat this process on the other side of your head.

    Rope Braid

    7. Color the next section back behind the light blue hair (or white if that's what you chose) with dark blue hair chalk.

    Rope Braid

    8. Repeat this process on the other side of your head.

    9. With a wide-tooth comb, lightly brush through the chalked hair (the chalk makes hair feel dry and tangled so a light brushing is great).

    Rope Braid

    10. Cross the red piece of hair over the light blue (or white if that's what you chose). Cross them over each other two times and then pick up the dark blue, crossing them over each other (or you can just twist them all together to make it easy). Pull this twisted band of hair to the back of your head and temporarily clip it into place. Repeat this process on the other side of your head.

    Rope Braid

    11. Once both twisted pieces meet at the back of your head, tie them off with an elastic hair tie.

    Rope Braid

    Hair-chalked side braid

    Side Braid

    1. Color a medium-sized section of hair around your face with light blue hair chalk. Going back and shifting down slightly, color the next section of hair dark blue.

    Side Braid

    2. Gather all your hair to the color-chalked side and begin to braid it.

    Side Braid

    3. Once all your hair is in a braid, if there are any areas of hair not colored, go back with the hair chalk now and touch up the color (you may need to lightly spritz the braid with water to help the chalk colors adhere to your hair).

    How to turn old pajama pants into couture track pants

    How to turn old pajama pants into couture track pants

    How to turn old pajama pants into couture track pants

    Supplies:

    • Pajama pants
    • Matching thread
    • 1-inch wide (or wider) elastic

    How to turn old pajama pants into couture track pants

    Instructions:

    1. Start out with a plain pair of elastic-waisted pajama pants.
    2. Turn the pants inside-out and put them on, using pins to mark how slim (tapered) you want to make them down your legs. Remove the pants, and with the right sides together, sew down the side from the waistband to the hem, following your markings. Repeat this step on the second side, and then do the same for the inside seams, as shown above. Trim off the extra fabric and surge or zigzag the raw edge so the fabric doesn't fray.
    3. Measure around your ankle and cut the two pieces of elastic to that measurement. Sew each piece of elastic in a loop, as shown above.
    4. Slip the elastic loop around the bottom of one pant leg (against the inside of the pants, as shown above), pinning it evenly around. The edge of the elastic should be about 1/8-inch below the edge of the pants so it doesn't hang out when you wear them. Repeat for the second leg.
    5. Sew three seams around the elastic with a straight stitch, stretching the elastic tight in between pins as you sew. Repeat with the second leg.
    6. Turn your pants right side out and you're done!

    To attend the Warner Bros Picture Event at CinemaCon, Melissa opted for a geometric print long-sleeve dress and some killer blue strappy heels. Looking hot, Melissa.

    Melissa McCarthy's top 10 style moments

    Melissa is starting her own plus-size fashion line! She shared her inspiration for the collection with Redbook: "When I go shopping, most of the time I'm disappointed. Two Oscars ago, I couldn't find anybody to do a dress for me. I asked five or six designers — very high-level ones who make lots of dresses for people — and they all said no."

    Melissa McCarthy's top 10 style moments

    Whether she's rocking a bold floral print or looking classic in black, Melissa's personality always shines through. We think she looked stunning in this floral wrap dress paired with edgy booties.

    Part of the reason we love Melissa so much? She's got a firm grasp on reality. "I don't know any neighborhoods where everyone's walking around in seven-inch heels and perfect makeup," Melissa told The Hollywood Reporter.

    Who can forget Melissa's 2013 MTV Movie Awards appearance? The funny lady looked sleek and comfy in a black jumpsuit, matching booties and some major neck candy.

    Melissa knows how to spice up a classic LBD: Add some white colorblocking. She paired her cute dress with the most shiny hair and adorable black ankle strap sandals we've seen in quite some time.

    Melissa McCarthy's top 10 style moments

    Melissa has some words of wisdom about body image and worrying about weight. She told Good Housekeeping: "You just have to say, it's pretty damn good. I am right here at the moment, and I'm OK with it. I've got other things to think about."

    Melissa McCarthy's top 10 style moments

    In a sparkly blue sweetheart neckline gown and glam waves, Melissa made quite the impact on the red carpet of the 17th Annual Critic's Choice Movie Awards.

    Melissa McCarthy's top 10 style moments

    Did you know Melissa studied fashion and textiles in college? She dished on her upcoming clothing collection with Good Housekeeping, discussing the importance of quality fabric when it comes to designing plus-size clothes: "The fabric has to be better, the cuts have to be better, and I want [the collection to be made] in the United States. I have no problem saying that an item might cost $11 more than the shirt down the street; it will last longer, and it will fit and look better."

    Melissa McCarthy's top 10 style moments

    Melissa isn't afraid to take fashion risks or show off her personality on the red carpet. One of her most memorable moments? This sparkly top and leather pants combo.

    Why we're obsessed

    Bold patterns and prints aren't every gal's cup of tea, but we've always thought the summer season was the perfect time to step outside your style comfort zone. Here, Julianne shows us how to tone down a statement top by balancing the look with neutrals.

    How to style the look

    Mixed prints have been creeping their way onto the runways the past few seasons, but if you're a bit pattern shy, it's best to start off with one print like Julianne did here. Pair with shorts in a neutral color that's featured in your print, add a black bag and sandals and you'll be ready to step out in style.

    Get up a little earlier

    It'll be tough at first, but your body will soon adapt to the earlier alarm. If you give yourself enough time to accomplish what you want to accomplish, you won't feel rushed or anxious.

    Make your bed

    It seems simple, but if you do it in the morning, you'll come home to a neat, stress-free bed, which is perfect for end-of-the-day unwinding.

    Get your heart pumping

    Whether you can get to a spin class or you just want to do our metabolism-boosting two-minute drill, it's important to get your heart rate going for the day. A little exercise will rev up your metabolism and give you the energy you need to power through the day.

    Stretch it out

    There's a reason a popular yoga routine is called "the sun salutation" — it's perfect for the morning. You don't need to do a whole yoga class in your living room, but if you stretch your muscles, you'll feel — literally — less tight and sore.

    Have a good breakfast

    We mean a really good one. Your mother told you that "breakfast is the most important meal of the day," and she wasn't kidding. Breakfast not only gives you the energy to power through the day, but it also boosts your metabolism. Take your time — don't scarf it down. Whether it's oatmeal with blueberries or an egg white omelet, remember that eating breakfast is part of your morning time, so enjoy it.

    Drink a glass of water

    You can't underestimate the importance of hydration. You need eight glasses of water a day, so why not start your day with one?

    Read something

    Whether it's an article in the newspaper, a few posts on your favorite blog or a few pages of a novel, whatever you read will stimulate your mind and get you focused for a great day.

    Map your day and make a list

    What do you want to accomplish? Do you have errands to run? See if you can run some of those errands in the morning. If you have dry cleaning to drop off, there's no harm in running it to the cleaners in the morning. If there are other things you need to do that you can't get done in the morning, making a list will at least help you feel in control of your day.

    Add some flair to your outfit

    As Shakespeare once said... to thine own outfit be true. OK, maybe those weren't his exact words, but a little flair can boost your self esteem. However you choose to accessorize your outfit — a flower in your hair or statement necklace — you'll feel extra confident with the personal stylish addition.

    Put on a panty liner...

    ... just for that extra feeling of freshness all day. Carefree Acti-Fresh Regular To-Go pantiliners will give you that extra boost of confidence and freshness all day. They're easy enough to work into your regular morning routine (and putting one on takes less time than shaving your legs). Easy enough, right?

    While you're at it, add anything else that will make you feel extra fresh — whether it's popping a Listerine strip or spritzing on your favorite body spray.

    Say "I love you"

    Before you go out the door, say "I love you" to whoever's important to you — whether its to your pet, your kids or your spouse.

    Do one final check in the mirror...

    ....to see just how fabulous and fresh you look. But take that final mirror-check not just to make sure you don't have a stain on your dress, but to take a deep breath and say something you love about yourself. We need to give ourselves love in the morning, too.

    Have a moment of gratitude

    What are you grateful for? Your spouse? Your job? The little deli down the street? Too often we don't take the time to even think about what we're grateful for — even the little things — so start your morning off by feeling grateful. (If you're feeling grateful, you'll also be less inclined to be angered by any potential traffic when you're en route to work.)

    Take a break

    Yes, we know you haven't even been to work yet, but we think a break is order after all the hard work you've put into getting ready. When you rush through your morning routine, you tend to feel rushed the rest of the day. Do whatever you need to do to calm your breath and gather your thoughts. If you slow it down and relax a bit before you head out, you'll set a calmer tone for the whole day.
