Trends may come and go, but real classic beauty will never fade — and that's why we'll never, ever tire of seeing creamy nude lips on the mouths of our favourite celebrities. The thing about "nude" is that the colour actually encompasses hundreds of different shades. Just like everyone in the world has slightly different skin colours, we all also present a slightly different colour when we leave our lips bare or coat them with a matching lipstick. Jessica Alba, for example — her nude is a light berry shade, while Diane Kruger's natural colour is a pale and creamy shade. Miranda Kerr has a hint of pale pink to her lips, while Jennifer Hawkins has the lightest berry undertone. Whichever look you're going for, you can take inspiration from the celebrities in this gallery. Sure, they like their bright pinks and oranges, too — but paring things back never looked so good.
Pack away your emerald accessories, ladies. That jewel tone is so 2013. The It colour for 2014? According to the hue professionals over at Pantone, it's a lovely shade of purple known as Radiant Orchid. But if your wardrobe isn't filled with lilacs and lavenders, fear not. Pantone also just released its official Fashion Colour Report for Spring 2014, complete with Dazzling Blues and Celosia Oranges. And if you're still unsure how to factor, say, a coral called Cayenne into your next outfit, New York's best designers have offered up sketches, their inspirations, and — not to complicate things — their own signature colour.
It's no wonder Miley Cyrus has been named one of Barbara Walters's Most Fascinating People of 2013. From dramatic 'dos to jaw-dropping performances, Miley Cyrus's transition from sweet Disney darling to va-va-vixen has been a bit rocky — but we're not here to judge. Although the star has had her share of controversy, Cyrus has taken everything in stylish stride.
Flaunting her fit figure in an array of designer creations on the red carpet and on stage, this year was — according to Miley — the year of the crop top and, by consequence, the bare midriff. So it should come as no surprise that we've crowned Ms. Miley the crop top queen of 2013! Whether you love it or hate it, Miley's stand-out style always gets people talking — and any publicity is good publicity, right?
Join us as we take a look back at all of her ab-flashing moments, then get ready for even more Miley in 2014. We know she won't let us down.
For some time now, the fashion world has collectively wondered whether boyfriend jeans and distressed denim were passing trends, but lo and behold, fashion-fickle Hollywood is still rocking them.

Click through to see examples to inspire a full week of wear.
Here's the most wearable trend we've seen in seasons — the fashion pack has confirmed that yes, sneakers are totally appropriate outside of the gym. While the hi-top styles and the sneaker wedge have enjoyed their moment, it's the humble running shoe we're talking about today.
Athletic influences are nothing new in fashion, and although we're waiting for 'sports-luxe' to be acknolwedged by Oxford dictionary, collaborations between Adidas and Stella McCartney, and the distinct sporty design direction we're seeing from high fashion labels like Alexander Wang confirm it's a trend with serious staying power.
Blogger, Zanita Morgan made us sit up and take notice with this outfit (pictured), but she's not the only one getting athletics-inspired. In fact, you've probably noticed the Nike tick making chic appearances off-track, and wondered how to try the trend at home — which is where we come in. Head into the gallery for 12 cool ways to wear the season's most comfortable fashion trend.
