Steal Blake's Look from the new Glamour

Here is a look you want to steal, immediately!

Its the new issue of Glamour, on stands soon, and Blake Lively does this amazing black/white spread (with a hint of color accessories)

From her hair to her pedicure, you should take note!

Its that chignon bun and the smokey eye that takes you back to Bridget Bardot

Get that smokey eye to look more classic than trendy by keeping the look matte (minimal shimmer and no sparkle)

a thin line of liquid liner (or pencil) around the entire eye, and a smudge of the matte black

top and bottom lash mascara goes well with this type of smokey eye

don't forget to use brow pencil!  A defined brow arch is essential to the classic look!

MAC Eyeshadow in Carbon is a great matte black

A nude or pale pink lip will complete the look (a similar color on cheeks)

For hair, the french twist style shouldn't be stiff, it should look natural and small pieces should fall to frame your face

Here is a nice video to assist you in creating a french twist style

Steal the flirty-retro look with a sheer blouse in a polka dot print

I also love the simplicity of this sheer white blouse with white denim
Silence & Noise Print Chiffon <em>Blouse</em> $29.99

Pair the white on white look with awesome coral pumps
Breckelle Angie-21 <em>Coral</em> Round Toe Tribute <em>Platform</em> Stiletto <em>Pump</em> for $20

These bamboo slingbacks are so retro!
Bamboo Colada 20 <em>Coral</em> Raffia Slingback <em>Platform Pumps</em> $21

Retro-chic all the way!
