Claire Danes turns 34 tomorrow, and while I love watching her play Carrie Mathison on "Homeland," it was her role as Angela Chase on "My So-Called Life" that put her on the map.
Sure, it was a defining time for her career, but that's not what I'm talking about. It was a major moment for beauty. Every girl under the age of 20 wanted Angela's dark red hair color and blunt cut. Thin brows and berry lipstick were essential. And you didn't have to be classically beautiful to date Jordan Catalano. Those were the days.

Red is in the air… And we're not surprised. With the success of red-haired stars like Jessica Chastain and Christina Hendricks, who wouldn't want to try this fiery hair color?
With so many celebs going red just in the last few weeks, here's how we imagine things went down: Ariel Winter snapped a photo of her red hair on Instagram, then Dianna Agron decided to go red and debuted her new hair color in West Hollywood. Coco Rocha spotted Agron and thought crimson hair would make a bold statement. Then, Rachel McAdams told Elizabeth Olsen that they should both try an auburn tint. Just a guess -- and we're hoping this trend continues.
We also have a list of stars we wish would go red, and Lauren Conrad is at the top. She's been a blonde for like, ever. It's about time she experiments…

What's better than a fresh summer mani/pedi? Pairing it with a killer pair of wedge sandals to match, of course. Luckily, the latest beauty-meets-fashion collab gives us the best of both worlds this summer.
NARS has teamed up with shoe designer Pierre Hardy to create a limited edition makeup collection inspired by Hardy's punchy Summer 2013 line. Available May 1 at www.narscosmetics.com, the new collection features six nail polish duos -- each packaged in a miniature shoebox and dust bag -- and two high-voltage blush shades featuring Hardy's signature cubic print.
After taking a peek at Hardy's summer line and these poppy lacquers, we can't wait to break out our sundresses and sandals.
What do you think of the latest NARS collaboration?

Diane Kruger will be the new face of Chanel's skin care line to be released later this year. The fashion brand selected Kruger because of her "natural elegance and beauty," and her "cosmopolitan spirit." But Kruger is no rookie when it comes to Chanel campaigns -- she first represented the brand's Allure perfume in 1996 and also appeared in ads for the Paris-Biarritz line in 2007. Source: StyleList
Swarovski will be releasing its first makeup and fragrance collection -- incorporating crystals (obviously) in both the products and the precious packaging. The Aura by Swarovski line will include fragrance, lipstick, and body shimmer. Source: POPSUGAR
