Sexy Celebrity Spectacle wearers (who don’t need to wear glasses!)

Skinny jean wearing Shoreditch hipsters have helped reinvent the idea of glasses from nerdy to nerd-licious and celebrities have been hooking up to this trend and proudly baring four eyes in public.

Many of the celebrities who have been seen sporting glasses are trying to perpetuate the sexy geek stereotype, and some manage this marvellously, while others fail spectacularly. To celebrate how gorgeous girls in glasses can be I’m going to share with you a few of my favourite sexy glasses wearing celebs.

Zoeey Deschanel

OK, it’s true that her inane perkiness and kooky mentality can be a little grating, but she definitely rocks the extra lenses. She has opted for  a frame shape that’s bold and the tortoiseshell design of the frames draw attention to her porcelain skin and flowing hair.

Jessica Alba in Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer

Jessica Alba can rock pretty much any look, but we think she captures innocence and smartness with these pretty oval frames.

Blake Lively’s Fishtail Plait : How to cheat your way to this look!

Blake Lively is one of my big girl crushes (look, I LOVE Gossip Girl OK?) and I think she has an amazing style. OK, an amazing stylist. Sure, it’s easy to dress well when you’re young, thin and rich, but she really seems involved in choosing her colours and clothing, and she generally seems to get it right. I got sent this lovely picture of Blake Lively at the premiere for Savage in New York, and think her fishtail plait is stunning. I like seeing celebs with hairstyles we can replicate at home, and though a fishtail IS fiddly, it’s so much easier than ring curls or a French Plait, that I’m happy she’s bringing it back.

Made in Chelsea mugs and hoodies- Totes Inapropes!

I’m not as up to date with the latest series of Made in Chelsea as I used to be (holidays/life/booze) but having watched the other series intently I’m betting Millie will be making that troutface, Francis will be inept with girls and trading quips with hot model boy Fredrik , and Spencer will be making girls throw things at the TV and cuss him out for his nefarious no good ways and dodgy hair styling.

In (dis)honour of the crew, I wanted to share a few choice items that have been created to celebrate/ mock the MiC team, and here they are for your enjoyment. I think they’re pretty pun in cheek, from the Totes Inapropes Hoodie to the Made in ChelTea mug (my personal fave).

Heroine Hair Dye Options- LOL

What type of hair colour do our favourite superhero heroines wear? I found a funny mockup of the poetential L’Oreal shades the likes of The Hunger Games Katniss and Merida from the upcoming Pixar Disney film Brave. I like the lighthearted look at the colours they might dye their hair, and whether or not this is a L’Oreal PR stunt it’s a pretty cute one!

Hopefully we’ll get to see even more mockups- who wouldn’t want Little Mermaid Ariel hair, or Pocahantos’s glossy locks? See more cute hair dye styles after the jump.

Celebrity Prayer Candles- Amy of Guadalupe, Sister Nicki Minaj and more!

Prayer candles are a tradition which has a Catholicism spirit to it, as the beeswax candles are traditionally used in churches. You light the candle and make a wish make a blessing and you can direct this at a person or to god- think of each candle as a prayer for a person. Many of these candles feature religious iconography such as Jesus and Mother Mary, but these celebrity prayer candles from Idol Kill serve a different deity.

I don’t think they’re suggesting we worship at the altar of celebrity or ask Mother Gaga to grant our wishes, but they are making a lighthearted statement about religion and beliefs as well as creating some rather cool looking candles. I’m not sure if the Amy Winehouse candle is going a little too far, but I find the Nicki Minaj version very entertaining.

Peter Andre is Fake Bake ambassador: Match made in heaven

Summer is here which means one thing- pasty Brits lathering on the fake tan like an extra in TOWIE. It’s time for us all to choose what brand we want to coat our limbs with, and Peter Andre is at hand to promote Fake Bake Sport Daily Tan. He’s a great choice of face for the brand as he has had a perma tan for two decades, and his lovely caramel colour is bound to attract people choosing their fake tan.

I find it intetresting that Fake Bake have gone with a man- not that their is any issue with men fake tanning, but that they think this is a big enought  market to pay whatever Pete’s appearance free is.

Pete is fronting the Fake Bake Sport Daily Tan. It’s masculine looking in a blue tube, and the use of the word ‘Sport’ makes it Grrr manly. It’s a gradual tan build up product,so you won’t go brown over night and is non greasy, and designed for active people.

Peter Andre says; ‘When Fake Bake approached me about this product I was really keen to get on board as I am constantly on the go but still want to take care of my appearance. I’ve really enjoyed being involved from the beginning and loved having an input into the tan design, even the great papaya and coconut smell. I love to tan but quickly, safely and effectively so this Fake Bake product is made for me!’

It’s a unisex product so I’m sure ladies will be using this, it’s just an interesting signpost that shows us how the world is far mire accepting of make grooming products- and that men aren’t embarrassed to use them anymore.

 £14.50 from Fake Bake

Mischa Barton’s makeup line at Mischa’s Place


Mischa Barton has gone a little off the radar recently, but she’s now back with a band with the launch of Mischa’s Place. I loved her in the OC and since then she’s gone on to be recognized for her cool bohemian style and I love her range of handbags. Mischas’ Place kind of takes her various fashion and beauty interests together and combines them in a hub where you can buy things that are ‘Mischas’ Place’ approved and branded.

There was a lot to pick from in her beauty range- blushes, lipsticks and palettes but they are all fairly highly priced, which is  tricky for something untested and so far only sold online. It’s expensive to get these- £20 for Benefit style paint on blushes and £30- £32 for an eyeshadow palette, so you have to pick wisely.

I’ve taken a little look at her beauty product line and have picked my favourite of the bunch- the Twist range of eyeshadows.

I really feel that the best of Michas’s makeup collection would be the Twist range, which  are colour wheels that have four vibrant shades on them, which look amazing and are hopefully highly pihmented. I’m a little concerned by the disclaimer, ‘This is a multipurpose face product, but care is recommended when used around the eye area as it has been known to cause sensitivity in some people’, as where else would you use these but the eyes, so will let other braver web testers feed back to me what happens!

Aqua Twist really catches my eye as I love the blue combinations, but I feel Circus Twist would be amazing for festival beauty looks.

Will you be trying these- which one do you like best?

Check them out at Mischas’s Place
