    Get the Look: Taylor Swift on the November cover of Glamour

    I decided to start posting my “Get the look” magazine cover rundown according to the month on the magazine, not the month in which I receive it. It seems odd to be posting September covers in August, and October covers in September, and so on and so forth. Also, I often don’t get to sit down and read the magazines as soon as they land in my mailbox, and I feel a little weird offering you guys fashion suggestions when I haven’t even opened the darn magazine!

    We’ll start with Taylor Swift on the November cover of Glamour magazine. I was kind of surprised, though not displeased, to see Taylor rocking her natural curls again after so months courting the straightening iron. (Though I did see she returned to straight hair for the cover of another ladies’ mag recently.)


    It would seem that the color red is really big right now, because I’ve seen several magazines with cover stars sporting the shade. Obviously, it’s also a personal color for Taylor, who just dropped a new album titled Red. I really love that Taylor went with short nails and a lined red lip here; I think it’s more classy and chic than long nails and a super-glossy pout. She finished it off with just the right amount of volumizing black mascara.

    The combo of a sparkly sequin top and a red skirt is very holiday. I could see her wearing red pumps with this, just to carry on with the color! The single gold bracelet is a nice way to pick up on the top without going overboard in the bling department.

    Get the Look: Emma Watson on the October cover of Glamour magazine

    Whoa! Hermione is all grown up–just check out Emma Watson’s sultry style on the October cover of Glamour magazine.

    Here’s a better shot of her cover outfit from inside the magazine:

    Artsy, moody, and sexy. Wow. Emma’s style is irresistible–although for the street, I’d recommend replacing the exposed bra with a sweet top of some sort! I love that she’s got the sort-of-innocent white dress paired with edgy black Mary Janes and that metallic black eyeliner (get a similar look with Physician’s Formula Eyebrightener Brightening Liquid Eyeliner in Metallic Black; $6.50, drugstores). You can use texturizer on short hair to recreate her style or if you have longer hair, why not try a messy topknot?

    Here are some pieces to get you started on recreating Emma’s look:

    1. Picot Trim Lace Dress, $29.80, Forever 21
    2. Satin Trim Lace Dress, $27.80, Forever 21
