QVC Is Donating 80% Of The Proceeds From Their Beauty With Benefits Event To Cancer And Careers
Makeup isn't just about making you look good; it's about making you feel good, too. And that's exactly why we're so excited that QVC and the CEW are back with their annual Beauty With Benefits event. Each year, they ask top the best beauty brands in the business to donate some of their most popular products to be sold on QVC all for a good cause. On April 28th at 7pm EST, QVC will air the Beauty With Benefits event featuring must-own products from Bobbi Brown, Nars, Laura Geller, bareMinerals, Vita Liberata, and so many more! That alone is worth tuning in for, but here's where it gets really good: 80% of the proceeds will go to Cancer and Careers, an organization that helps women who have been diagnosed with cancer continue to advance themselves professionally and achieve their career goals. So make sure to tune and shop for a great cause. You can visit qvc.com for more details on the event and the products that will be available. QVC'S BEAUTY WITH BENEFITS EVENT
These Peep-Toe Marc Fisher Booties Are The Perfect Wear Now, Wear Later Investment
It’s not every day that you find a hot pair of shoes that you can wear straight from the office to a night out on the town. That's why the Marc Fisher collection at QVC is so legit; there are so many versatile styles! Browsing through the new line, we couldn't help but fall in love with the Helene peep-toe booties ($99). We absolutely loved the look of the shoes, from the cut-out detail around the ankle to the perfect neutral color. But then we tried these babies on and it was heaven. The chunky 3.5-inch heel is the ideal walkable height, plus there are padded insoles that make it feel like you're walking on air. Fashion and comfort aside, these are the perfect shoes to buy and wear now--and then keep wearing in the fall, too. Need proof? Check out how we made these booties work for a summer outfit and for a fall look. When it's warm outside, pair your Helene booties with a trendy denim skirt and blouse for a look that's great for a movie date with your girls or brunch with your boo. Next season, your Helene booties will look killer with skinny jeans and a pretty kimono. SHOP ALL MARC FISHER SHOES ON QVC We'd like to thank QVC for sponsoring this post.

We've had our calendars marked for the launch of Nicole Richie for QVC, since the first photos of the line hit.

Speaking of collaborations... you've got to check out the latest Marni for H&M photos, DVF for Current/Elliot, and Wes Gordon for Jones New York.
See The First Photos Of Nicole Richie For QVC Just Days Before The Line Hits!
Fans of Nicole Richie's glam hippie aesthetic have something new to look forward to: the designer is launching a capsule collaboration with QVC. Richie has said that she was drawn to work with the home shopping network because of the "opportunity to design for a much broader range of women" — with prices between $75 and $257, the Nicole Richie Collection for QVC is a major step down in price point from Richie's Winter Kate collection (around $300 for a printed dress). The line will debut on February 24 during QVC's “The Buzz on the Red Carpet — Live From L.A.” show. So far we've only seen three items from the collection (a maxi dress, kimono jacket, and leather hobo), but WWD reports that more dresses and printed tops are soon to come. Check out the goods in the slideshow above, and shop our guides to the best maxi dresses, summer dresses, and handbags.

We Die For Rachel Zoe’s Fall Picks On Regis & Kelly
Rachel Zoe, wearing a black silk dress with a large front bow and gold jewelry, walked Kelly and guest host Piers Morgan through fall's hottest trends this morning. In case you have a day job, and missed the daytime show, here is a cheat sheet to Rachel's favorites: Hats: Rachel outfitted Kelly in a black cloche hat with a gold band. Try this Rachel Zoe Woven Asymmetrical Cloche ($21.88, down from $59) to get the look. Cat-eye glasses: "I'm loving cat eyes right now," Zoe admitted. The "50s, 60s, 70s are back in the biggest way." You will love the retro style of these Marc by Marc Jacobs Modified Cat Eye Sunglasses ($98). Scarves: Rachel showed Piers and Kelly how to wear scarves - a big trend for fall. Grab this Rachel Zoe Abstract Geometric Print Oversized Scarf ($26.25, down from $59). Trench coat: Rachel styled Kelly with a black trench coat. "Belt it tight, and you don't have to go through the loops," she explained. Try the chic style at home with Rachel Zoe Button Front Water Resistant trench coat ($116, down from $144). Messenger or cross body bag: Rachel put her QVC laptop bag on Kelly. The messenger isn't available yet, so try this brand-new for fall Tory Burch Dayton Messenger ($525). Thigh high boots: Kelly rocked some very, very high boots "One more millimeter and we're at the parts" she revealed. These Sam Edelman Vesey Thigh High Boot ($299.95) are incredibly sexy. Oversize clutches: "Oversize clutches are great because you can take them from day or night," Rachel said. Her Rachel Zoe Double Faced Sequin clutch ($67.50, down from $157) is great because it comes with removable strap, so you can also wear it as a shoulder bag. Statement necklaces: "With statement jewelry, I kind of like one at a time," Rachel explained. Go for a big necklace, like Rachel did for Kelly, with this Rachel Zoe Geometric Link Bead necklace ($58.32, down from $165). Faux fur: Rachel is known for her oversize faux fur jackets and vests, and asserted that the look is still huge for this fall.

With tons of fun wardrobe staples that Rachel herself would wear, such as long chain necklaces, eccentric cocktail rings, flowy maxidresses, and leather satchels, you can obtain her 70's chic look for less than $100.

Rachel Zoe’s To-Do List Gets Longer–Expect Shoes And Clothes For QVC
Rachel Zoe's empire just keeps on growing. She styles some of Hollywood's best dressed, she has her own 7 for All Mankind Rachel Zoe Jeans, and she plans on adding ready-to-wear and shoes to her QVC collection--we don't see her slowing down any time soon. The busy stylist showed her fall 2010 QVC line yesterday in New York City (see twitpics above courtesy of Zoe), and although we see her drop thousands of dollars for vintage clothes on The Rachel Zoe Project, everything for QVC will retail under $200. A few new scarves and necklaces will be on QVC this month, but the complete collection debuts in September. It looks like she wants everyone to wear statement making coats and furry hats which could be cute. In the meantime, check out these three Rachel Zoe staples: Zoe loves The Rachel Bellbottom ($169), and so do we. The dark wash and flare leg will make your legs look slimmer and longer. Zoe loves her maxi dresses, and this ASOS Kaftan Sleeve Plain Chiffon Maxi Dress ($93) is perfect for summer. For a pair of platforms, these Frye Joy Hurache Platform Slingbacks ($138, down from $198) look straight from Zoe's closet. You can wear them with jeans, or a summer dress. See more celebrity style, and then check out our guides to the best cheap jewelry, the best clogs, the best skinny jeans, and the best rompers.
Rachel Zoe Sells A-List Pieces For D-List Prices On QVC
Rachel Zoe premiered her spring 2010 collection for QVC yesterday evening, and she'll will be on air later today at 12 p.m., 3 p.m., and 11 p.m. EST. Our friends at PopSugar TV gave us a sneak peak of Zoe's favorite pieces--check out the video below: A few of these items are available online now at QVC. Here are our favorite pieces from the celeb stylist's line: This Rachel Zoe Tuxedo Jacket with Ruched Sleeve Details ($90.00) will become your go-to blazer to top everything off. I also love that the sleeves are ruched, so the jacket has that cool rolled-up-sleeve look without the effort. These Rachel Zoe Pave' Crystals & Cabochon Drop Earrings ($64.50) look like something you'd find at an estate sale. No stranger to vintage, Rachel Zoe certainly has a hit on her hands with this one. I'm loving the mixture of bohemian turquoise and crystal. This Rachel Zoe Large Flap Front Satchel ($126.00) looks buttery, and it's the perfect size for carrying around your everyday essentials, like a laptop. See what else is going on in our fashion news section, then check out Rachel Zoe's must-haves for spring, and our guide to the best chain strap bags, and stylish laptop cases.
Isaac Mizrahi Is Bringing His Upbeat Aesthetic To QVC
Beginning December 4, the ubiquitous Isaac Mizrahi will be the latest in a string of desigers to hit QVC.

Bean's classic camel toggle coat and Juicy Couture's studded beret. But trust, Isaac, that we mean it when we say that we'll be right there with you on December 4th.

This Moschino Cheap and Chic pencil skirt ($283.50, was $405) has a classic pencil shape, done in cotton with white pinstripes for a lighter feel.

Play Mad Scientist with Your Polish, Or Let the Pros Do It For You
Who doesn’t love one-of-a-kind items? I certainly do—and I’m willing to bet all of you fickle beauty people do, too. Recently, I discovered that CND manicurist Angelina Wingle (CND custom mixes colors for designers' runway shows) has set up a website, GoIndulge.com, to provide us with the custom polishes created for the some of the Fall 2009 shows. The site allows you to choose which designer nail creation you want; then it asks if you’d like to be your own “mixologist” or if you’d like the polish pre-mixed for you. I say be your own mix-master: Wingle provides you with an empty polish bottle, plus the lacquers and “recipe” you’ll need to mix your new signature shade. Personally, I fell in love with the cool muted gray from the Matthew Williamson runway (recipe: 2 parts Cream Puff to 1 part Voodoo), but there are other shades, like the gunmetal gray from Yigal Azrouel or the wine-burgundy from DKNY, to sate your nail tastes.
If You’re Not Going To Clean Your House This Spring, At Least Organize Your Work Stuff
We have an idea that’s better than spring cleaning (and, ahem, don’t you vacuum every week anyway?): Spring stop searching through piles of papers and get your work crap organized.Today on Better.tv, we’ve pulled together a bunch of products to make it a little easier.Organize Your Time Two organization essentials: a great daily planner and a place to write down all those tasks that cross your mind. Galison’s planner ($17) is reasonably priced and totally convenient, with lots of sticky notes to stick on important events or report pages. While you’re working, organize your thoughts and tasks with a Time Tamer pad ($6).Organize Your Desk Free up some space with a Memo Mousepad ($9.50) – it’s a pad and a mouse pad in one. Then, keep piles from taking over your space by hanging up papers on IKEA’s magnetic strip (99 cents) and standing important files upright between Dynomighty’s Desk Dots ($15). Organize Your Tech Re-gain the upper hand on your tech toys with a cord winder ($5) and a few wire clips ($4 for 3): the frog (cord winder) will keep cables tucked neatly in its mouth, and the cats (suction-cupped wire clips) can hang on the wall and keep a bunch of wires off your desk. Finally, charge your mobile device in a Socket Pocket ($10) and you won’t knock it onto the floor and crack the screen.

Ole Henriksen Firm Action Mask: Because There Comes A Point When ‘Firm’ Is Our Single Favorite Word
What: Ole Henriksen Firm Action Mask, $27 Why: There’s something about the words “firm” and “action” that makes me do beauty back-flips over products; anything that promises to stealthily act on tightening increasingly stubborn fine lines and bottomless pores is my skin’s new BFF. A thick coating of this clay mask initially imparts a subtle cool feeling. After leaving it on for 20 to 30 minutes, that firming action has my face nearly frozen in place. But when I rinse off the mask, my pores instantly seem smaller, and my skin feels soft - so soft, in fact, I can’t stop touching it…even in public. Get Yours: sephora.com
Awards Season Isn’t Over Yet.. CEW Brings On The Best Of Beauty
Cosmetic Executive Women, Inc. (CEW) just announced the finalists for their annual beauty awards, and everyone in the cosmetics, fragrance and skincare industries will be on pins and needles until May 1 when the winners are announced. If we were filling out brackets, we'd definitely have Avon and Olay going all the way in their categories. After all, the odds are in their favor: Avon scored noms in 11 categories, while Olay got noticed in all the "mass" skincare and bath and body categories but one. And of course, our writers could have predicted some of the winners. Rebekah has already professed her love for Philosophy's Hope in a Jar moisturizer ($15-$60), one of the contenders in the prestige moisturizer category. And Bryn has been heard singing the praises of Bumble and Bumble Spray de Mode ($28). I've had great luck with nominated bargain beauty finds L'Oreal Double Extend Beauty Tubes Mascara ($11) and Clairol Perfect 10 ($14), which we tested for our Hair at Home Guide. Which nominees do think are shoo-ins? Did CEW overlook any of your beauty faves? Make your predictions in our comments section, and check back in May for a rundown of the winners.
The Talk Market: A Home Shopping Channel You Control (Which Means No More Bumbling Paula Abdul)
What: The Talk Market Why: The founders of The Talk Market have managed to keep the good (ease of use, seeing the product from all angles) and ditch the bad (endless hours of Paula Abdul yammering about her jewelry line) when it comes to video-based shopping. This online shopping community lets you hear about products directly from the designers, boutique owners and creators who are selling them via quick clips that give the rundown of the products' best features.I never would have clicked on Flirt's reversible snap skirt ($124) from a static web-shop lineup, but seeing the designer flip, adjust, and re-size the skirt in a flash has me thinking I could use such a versatile piece for spring. I also loved getting to hear jewelry designer Margo Morrison's design philosophy as she showed me how great her adorable teardrop necklace ($395) looks when layered with other strands.
Three Multi-Way Bras That Let You Wear Those One-Shoulder Frocks With Reckless Abandon
The red carpet run is over for the year, but the asymmetrical neckline that so many starlets sported has stuck around. This look is perfect for spring - if we can figure out the bra situation, that is. Thankfully, lingerie designers are hip to the trends and are creating multi-way bras that offer the support of double straps without the fear of exposing our unmentionables.1. DKNY Intimates Ravishing Romance Multi-Way Push-Up ($40) This lacy little number takes it a step beyond the conventional convertible to allow for sexy shoulder-baring. 2. Victoria's Secret's 100 Ways Bra ($50)Wear this bra under single-shoulder, low-backed, halter, and V-strap tops with reckless abandon. (Don't worry, it comes with a handy guide of how to pull off all 100 options). 3. Infinite Options Bra ($15, was $30)Fashion Forms offers a more budget-friendly version in this bra, but you'll have to figure out where to hook the straps on your own. Check out our Bra Guide and Strapless Bra Guide for other attractive - and practical - lingerie options.

Spring At Bebe Brings Sexy Safari, Sexy Animal Prints, Sexy Ruffles, And So On…
Bebe described its new spring lookbook as a move toward chic, which piqued my interest, considering the mall favorite usually sits somewhere firmly in the middle of trendy and trashy. Metallics, safari, ruffles—popular runway-inspired themes—are all there. Yet, nearly everything has been sexified. Like women’s Halloween costumes, no Bebe shopper wants to be a cat, she wants to be a sexy cat. And for the store, it’s not a safari shirt, but a sexy safari shirt. The Sexy Sheen Safari Jacket ($149) with the Sexy Sheen Shirred Pencil Skirt ($89) is a good example. I like the details that come with the safari look, but not in shiny, tight, white polyester. I can't count the ways that fails. The Panther Silk Strapless Dress ($129) is as literally jungle-inspired as they come. This handkerchief on steroids doesn't leave a lot of room for error (aka bending over), and if you're pushing 35, let's hope no one confuses the panther for a cougar. It's when Bebe leaves the sexy jungle behind that some pretty pieces come out. This Multi Layer Top with Flower Belt ($69) is how spring should look -soft, flirty, and approachable.Check out our Mall Stores feature, where we did happen to find some good stuff from Bebe's past seasons, although it wasn't an easy feat.
Deal Of The Day: Up to 40% Off Frill-Free Dresses At Banana Republic

This sleeveless pleated dress ($100, was $150) is the definition of sophistication- wear with a bold piece of jewelry or statement clutch to complete the look. This short sleeved trench dress ($90, was $150) is a warm-weather take on the classic look. Pair with simple flats for the day, and stacked wooden heels for a spring evening. This plaid shift dress ($90, was $150) has an elegant silhouette that is both commanding and lady-like.

Freebie Friday: Win A SPANX Bra-llelujah! Racerback Bra From Bare Necessities
What: SPANX Bra-llelujah! Racerback Front-Close Bra Why: They call this line Bra-llelujah! for a reason (actually, a bunch of reasons). The stretchy hosiery back prevents bulges and bra lines, while the lined underwire cups provide invisible support, even under clingy tops. And it has lots of details designed for comfort: tagless back, no metal hooks and thick straps that won’t dig into your shoulders. It’s really something of a revelation – just like all the other SPANX pieces that Bare Necessities stocks. How: To win your own Spanx Bra-lellujah!, take a look at the available colors, then enter by leaving a comment telling us which one you'd prefer.

What To Wear With: Light Wash Jeans (That Doesn’t Involve Shredded Tees And Keds)
Light wash denim will be everywhere this spring, but this doesn't mean you have to dress like a bad 80s flashback in order to inhabit the trend. Lighter jeans can look surprisingly modern and polished, as long as you don't pair with your favorite Axl Rose tee. Mix a pair of slim light wash ankle jeans ($216) with a no-frills black cardigan ($44); the dark color will help ground the lightness of the jeans. Embrace spring's bohemian resurgence with fun cork wedges ($155) and stacked accessories. Wear one dark ($288) and one light ($28) cuff together with a pair of matte gold hoop earrings ($4). Finally, grab a burnt orange hobo ($635) to add some color to your modern, yet casual, and definitely not 80s ensemble.
