Stars Fete Fashion and Film at the Chanel and Charles Finch Pre-Oscar Party



The fourth annual Chanel and Charles Finch pre-Oscar party happened last night in LA, and some of Hollywood's chicest actors, some of whom pull double-duty as Chanel ambassadors, turned out in style. Diane Kruger, Rachel Bilson, Ginnifer Goodwin, Freida Pinto, and Elizabeth Olsen were on hand to fete fashion and film in anticipation of the biggest awards night of the year. Not surprisingly, Chanel was designer du jour. Scroll down to see all the outfits up close and personal, including some accessory highlights!

Priori : Beauty Review


(PRIORI Advanced AHA Perfection Facial Gel)

I would like to introduce a new anti-aging brand, Priori. Priori comes from the latin phrase "a priori," meaning from cause to effect. You may not realize it, but you're involved, perhaps deeply, with Joe (Joseph Lewis II, founder and chemist for Priori), even though you may never met him!

Just have a look in your bathroom vanity cabinet or handbag; if it contains a product with alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA), Idebenone, or CoffeeBerry, you're likely relying on Lewis to put your best face forward. Lewis sourced and introduced these ingredients to create some of the skincare industry's most innovative breakthrough anti-aging products.

I was gifted one of Priori's most popular products, the perfection facial gel. It contains 16% LCA plus 1% salicylic acid and peptides in a gel texture. It claims to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and minimize breakouts. It's a very light lotion and moisturizing enough to eliminate the need to apply any additional moisturizer afterwards. It makes my skin smooth and soft. I did experience a little irritation from the product with redness around my mouth. But it did subside after a few days. Overall a great product I recommend you to try!

New Find: St. Kilda Jewelry

St. Kilda Jewelry Feature

St. Kilda Jewelry was founded in 2004 by designer Nora Kogan. In the Park Slope, Brooklyn, store you can see the largest assortment of St. Kilda pieces, with new designs appearing in the cases regularly. Located in the former Conservation Plumbing storefront, their Fifth Avenue store also doubles as a studio.

All of St. Kilda jewelry is made locally. They exclusively use recycled metals and conflict-free stones in all of their designs. St. Kilda strives to be authentic and they do this by maintaining close relationships with everyone involved in producing the St. Kilda line. Every piece is finished with great detail in the studio and they hope that the spirit and intent infused in each piece is passed onto the wearer.

My favorite pieces are the dainty, snake rings set with diamonds. Take a look for yourself at StKildaJewelry.com.
