Celebrity stylists Phillip Bloch, Jessica Paster, and George Kotsiopoulos know a thing or two about getting dressed up for a celebration — after all, they've styled Katy Perry, Jennifer Aniston, and Halle Berry, to name a few. Watch our video for their tips on how to put together a creative Halloween costume by taking a cue from Katy Perry's "California Gurls," Britney Spears, or the Kardashian sisters.
For the November issue of Vogue, Anne Hathaway may talk about nude scenes and relationship deal breakers, but it's her Audrey Hepburn-inspired hairstyle that has all of Team Bella talking. Celebrity stylist Oribe, the creative force behind the twisted updo, says Anne was wonderful to work with. "She's very open, which really translates on camera," he says. "She’s a beautiful subject for a shoot and an amazing girl."
Behind the scenes, Oribe set the hair first before the makeup team got to work, calling the experience a group effort. "Everything works together to make it a great shoot," Oribe explains. "From being in Paris and working at the [Hôtel de] Crillon to seeing the beautiful clothes — the look just comes together from this inspiration. On top of everything, Anne is a major movie star, and all of these aspects propel you to tell a great story with her," he says.
Get Oribe's tips on how you can get Anne's classic-meets-modern hairstyle with lots (and lots) of modern texture, just keep reading.

Most of you prefer heavier eyebrows, but just like hairstyles, makeup shades, and clothing fashions, different shapes and textures of eyebrows go in and out of style over time. In the the '20s and '30s, it was all about thin, dramatic brows with lots of curves. In the '80s, it was all about a bigger-the-better attitude. And then there were the '90s, when brows were so thin, tweezers never got a break. So let's take a peek at some of the most memorable eyebrow styles over decades past. Which era stands out most for you?
Before Sex and the City, we had Holly Golightly, the fabulous single lady portrayed by Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's. In the upcoming book Fifth Avenue 5 A.M.: Audrey Hepburn, Breakfast at Tiffany's, and the Dawn of the Modern Woman, author Sam Wasson argues that Hepburn's portrayal was one of the first to glamorize the single, city-dwelling woman.
In the 1958 book on which the movie was based, Truman Capote made Golightly a racy call girl, a far more controversial character who was tamed for the big screen. In the latest issue of New York magazine, Wasson says the casting of Audrey Hepburn made Golightly a more aspirational figure:
"Before Hepburn, there was the prude and the slut, and the reality of in-between had no cinematic correlation. If Monroe had played her, she would have just been a hooker. That was when I got the power of the movie, and the genius of casting Audrey Hepburn."
In a much-discussed season two episode of Mad Men, the creative types at Sterling Cooper argue that all women fall into two camps: the Jackie or the Marilyn, the Madonna and the whore. But being a "Jackie" also means being a mom, so for single women, perhaps the Marilyn vs. Audrey dichotomy is more accurate. What do you think?
A few weeks ago, Rihanna walked the Nickelodeon orange carpet wearing a multitonal hairdo at at the Kids' Choice Awards. We've seen her do the blond and deep brown look before, and she's not alone. As long as there's hair color, two-toned hairstyles will multiply. Check out some other celebrity hair color pairings now.
This scene from Roman Holiday is one of the most charming ever, as Audrey Hepburn's character, Princess Ann, liberates herself from her stuffy, regal lifestyle. Watch as the expressive and flirtatious Italian barber ("Off, off, off!") takes her hair from below the shoulder to this iconic wavy pixie. It all makes me want to go for a gelato run on a Vespa. What about you? Much like Audrey's character is freed by chopping her locks in this classic film, have you ever found a haircut to be liberating, too?
Recently, after seeing a picture of doe-eyed, pixie-sporting Ginnifer Goodwin, I've had gamines on the brain. Characteristics often associated with gamine women include pixie hairstyles, short, straight-across bangs, bobbed hairstyles, wide eyes, petite features, boyish qualities, and a bit of what you might call a certain je ne sais quoi. Check out some famous gamine stars — from both past and present — right now.
I just watched the 1966 Audrey Hepburn and Peter O'Toole film How to Steal a Million, which is chock-full of talking points when it comes to interior design. But the one thing that truly blew me away (aside from the armoire that leads to a secret staircase) was the purple staircase and banister in Hepburn's character's foyer. In contrast to the rest of the reserved, gilded, French furnishings in the Parisian mansion, the purple stair runner is a very bold choice. Several important scenes take place on the staircase, so it was smart of production designer Alexandre Trauner to make it a focal point. Clearly, the décor in this home is dated and a little glitzy for most of our tastes, and this shade of purple isn't very popular these days. But what do you think of this effect in general? Do you like how they've used a stair runner to create visual impact? Would you want to replicate a similar look in your home with a powerful color, pattern, or stripes?
I can't get enough of Audrey Tautou's wavy pixie. It has the perfect vintage vibe with a fresh, modern appeal. To duplicate this forever-in-style look, apply a texturizing gel or a curl activating spray to damp hair and let air dry. If your hair is short, touch up pieces with a curling iron for a polished yet effortlessly tousled look. If your hair is longer, create a "fake-out" style by pulling your hair back into a tucked-under ponytail, then curl face-framing sections to shorten. Check out my slideshow for some inspiration on re-creating this gamine style for different hair types.
