South African model Candice Swanepoel looks absolutely beautiful in the Victoria's Secret Holiday 2010 campaign. It wouldn't be Victoria's Secret without their famous sexy photoshoots! The pieces in this line range from about 20-70 dollars and are available in stores and online at victoriassecret.com

Sweater dresses are one of the easiest ways to look great with minimal effort this winter. They save you the work of having to match tops with bottoms and keep you warm at the same time! There are so many options, but I like to keep it neutral and mix with accessories and makeup that stand out. Try pairing one with thick, opaque tights and your favourite boots!

I've always thought Leighton Meester was pretty, but these photos really highlight her best features. The red lips against her porcelain skin in the second to last photo is really beautiful...I also think the highlights are a nice yet subtle change. very pretty!

It's nice to see Rihanna moving on from her tough chick image and looking pretty and feminine on the cover of Marie Claire UK December issue. She looks stunning and I'm in love with the glitzy dress in the second photo...perfect for the holiday season!

Isn't this what everyone wears to a book signing??? I still haven't decided if I'm inspired or disgusted by this outfit. The trashiness is so extreme that it's kind of charming. gtg... I have a sparkly blue stripper costume to purchase...

Taking care of your skin from the inside is essential for a radiant glow on the outside. Here are some of my favourite things to get Natasha Poly-like perfect skin:
Spinach- green foods are full of antioxidants and give you the nourishment and vitamins to make your skin and whole body function at its best.
Udo's Oil: I take a few tablespoons of the actual oil before meals, but it does come in capsule form as pictured above. Essential fatty acids are called that for a reason: they're essential! They play a significant role in the structure of every cell and maintaining impermeability barrier of the skin.
Cetaphil: non-irritating and uncented. Even though I try to use organic skin care, I do really like Cetaphil, it makes my skin feel so moisturized.
Yoga: Oxegenates all of your cells including your skin. There's a yoga glow that I get after I finish a class or DVD, it must be all the blood pumping through the body.
Water: We all know a minimum of 8 glasses of water a day keeps your entire body including skin hydrated and healthy.
Rosehip oil: I use a tiny amount as an undereye treatment, its so gentle, I love it.
Nuts: Nuts are a great snack which provide you with healthy fats which nourish your skin.
Invisible Zinc: This is one of my favourite sunscreens, I think it is currently unavailable in North America, but I hope they start selling it here soon. Zinc is a physical barrier which provides better protection than chemical sunscreens and is usually less irritating.

I've always loved the look of full brows, but Camila Belle takes it to another level. Her dark, very defined and thick brows frame her face beautifully and make all of her features look even more striking. If you're interested in trying a similar look, I suggest Anastasia products available at Sephora. I really like the the perfect brow pencil in Brunette.

16-year-old Lindsey Wixson is an up-and-coming model from Kansas who is already number 14 on models.com list of top 50 female models. Her unique features, including pouty lips and a gap in her teeth really make her stand out of the crowd. You can see her on the runways and ad campaigns for Prada, Versace and Miu Miu.
