Kate Winslet at SAG Awards

Once again Kate Winslet looked amazing at an awards show. I cannot wait for her Oscars night look. She just radiates. Tonight was a stunning gorgeous blue Narciso Rodriguez with hair by Frederic Fekkai stylists and makeup by Jillian Dempsey. Lets not forget those wow earring either. Face framing diamonds by Chopard.

Here's how they got the look :

"Celebrity makeup artist Jillian Dempsey played up Kate’s eyes with lots of black eyeliner, mascara and shimmering shadow paired with a soft neutral palette on her lips and cheeks. Jillian used Lancôme Artliner in Noir on the upper lash line and then lightly dusted Jillian Dempsey Professional for Avon Eyeshadow Trio in Pebble Wash on the eyelid. She finished the eyes with a few coats of Lancôme Ôscillation Mascara in Black. For the lips, she used Serge Lutens nude lip liner and filled in the entire lip. Finally, she applied Color Fever Gloss in Engaging, a very sheer nude shade, for a high-shine pout"

"Apply Fekkai More All Day Density Mousse to wet hair for added volume. On the bottom portion only apply Fekkai Coiff Magnifique to ends for a smooth blowout and to protect hair from the heat of styling tools. Using the Fekkai Extra Large Round Brush blow dry hair and part on the right side. Once completely dry, use a one inch curling iron throughout hair to create tousled movement with dimension. Apply Fekkai Technician Glaze to ends working it
through with fingers for texture that is not too heavy. Tease the top of the head ever so slightly to create a touch of height. Next pull hair back into a low
ponytail. Create a loose braid and twist it around to form a bun. Secure with pins. Mak
ing a braid helps to keep the bun from appearing to severe and gives it the soft modern touch."

I am writing to let you know about an online campaign you and your readers would be interested in. Frédéric Fekkai and Brickfish have teamed to celebrate chic and fashionable hairstyle by launching an online hair competition, aptly titled ‘Haute Hair.’
I work with Brickfish, a social media marketing network, and we help brands spread their messages virally via their customers. We have just launched a new effort with the Frédéric Fekkai to help them take their ‘Haute Hair’ campaign to the social web. Here are the details:
• The campaign asks entrants to submit a picture or video of their best hairdo and explain how their hair reflects their personal style.

• Consumers share their entries with each other via social media to get votes and reviews
• Entries are also ranked according to how “viral” they are (meaning how much they’ve been circulated throughout the Internet, be it via social networks, email, IM, or other sites)
• Grand Prize: One winner, selected by a panel of judges from Frédéric Fekkai from the top 200 highest scoring entries will win a 3 day, 2 night all-expenses-paid trip for two to NYC. The winner will get their hair cut by Frédéric Fekkai. In addition, the winner and guest will be treated to backstage access to select fashion shows at New York Fashion Week. Learn about High Score.
• Runner-Up: One winner, selected by a panel of judges from Frédéric Fekkai from the top 200 highest scoring entries will win one year’s worth of Frédéric Fekkai products.
• Most Viral: One winner, selected by a panel of judges from Frédéric Fekkai from the top 200 Most Viral entries will win $1,000 worth of Frédéric Fekkai products. Learn more about Most Viral.
• Sign-Up Sweepstakes: Six winners, who sign-up for the Frédéric Fekkai email list by filling out the form in the Campaign Highlights area of the Frédéric Fekkai "Haute Hair" Campaign or who opt-in from the Submit Entry tab, will be randomly selected at the end of the campaign to each win a gift bag of Frédéric Fekkai products.

Here’s an example of an entrant that keeps her hair feminine, simple, healthy and voluminous:

I am writing to let you know that I am commenting on Kate Winslet! She looked great! Okay, I gotta hate her because she is actually getting better looking with age! Her and Emma Thompson make me want to scream with their backwards aging. I guess Kate always had those knockers. They were certainly front and center. You go girl(s)!
