Five Tips to Opening a Bottle of Bubbly the Right Way

There's no better sound at a party than the "pop" of a sparkling wine bottle.

Thankfully, we've got plenty of tips for keeping your bubbly cold and your party safe. If you're one of the many who fear the task, then watch our video — and never be afraid to open sparkling wine again. On Brandi: Givenchy [3] from FORWARD by elyse walker.

Watch a Model's Beauty Transformation at BCBG Max Azria Fall 2013

New York Fashion Week is here! Leading up to the big day, many designers are busy testing their Fall 2013 runway beauty looks. BCBG Max Azria let us take a peek at their beauty test, where cool girl Kate Moss [6] served as inspiration. For the runway, models were adorned in beanies with lightly glazed terra-cotta lips and a soft smoky eye, creating a natural, subtle look. Bumble and Bumble's Laurent Philippon describes the hair as being made to look as if "she had been traveling." One key to getting a smoky eye at home without too much effort? "Use a pencil," says makeup artist Val Garland.
