natural beauties

We love our celebs all dolled up and glamorized but many of them look even more gorgeous bare faced and O’Naturale. We put together a list of our top 8 natural beauties and man no makeup is even required. Makeup always helps enhance our natural beauty but it sure doesn’t hurt to have a gorgeous palette to start with. I don’t know about you but I sure don’t look like this in the morning….

Alessandra Ambrosio

 Beyonce Knowles

Whitney Port

Maria Menounos

Kourtney Kardashion

Kim Kardashion

Rachel Bilson

Sarah Michelle Gellar

 

best-dressed at 84th Academy Awards

Ellie Kemper looked amazing in this rust sequin strapless. This dress accentuates her curves and complimented her gorgeous locks making her our pick for boldest-dressed!


Lara Spencer simply shone in this one shoulder gown. From the texture to the cut — which truly accentuated her statuesque physique — the look was flawless.

Louise Roe took our breath away with the unique white satin gown. Delightfully ladylike, we love the metallic details.

 

Maria Menounos looked stunning in the green side cut out gown. Showing off her natural curves while managing to keep the look elegant, we have to give her a nod as the evening’s sexiest-dressed celeb. Meow!

Michelle Williams is almost always a red carpet beauty stand out with her striking and flawless porcelain skin, but this Louis Vuitton number sent her straight to the top for our best dressed list. Chic yet adorable!

Milla Jovovich dazzled in this jaw dropping Elie Saab one shoulder gown.

 

Missi Pyle looked incredible in this eco-friendly turquoise design. She proved going green doesn’t mean you can’t be stylish!


Berenice Bejo wore a low cut, long sleeved mint green Elie Saab creation.  The gown, paired with her red locks, was a study in elegance that was not lost in translation.

Gwenyth Paltrow is almost always a fashion ‘do’ and  last night she proved why with this gorgeous Tom Ford gown. We give Gwenyth our vote for most chic.

Stacie Keibler looked incredible last night — and it wasn’t just George Clooney on her arm!  She rocked this amazing gold lamé Marchesa gown, causing neck sprains up and down the red carpet, making her tarte’s favorite head turner of the night.

This month I chatted with Celebrity Makeup Artist, Maria Maio. Not only is she a beauty genius, but she is also an avid tarte fan. Our last project together was a Fashion’s Night Out Collaboration with 7 For All Mankind. She created fun and creative looks for both the NY and Cali gal.
