Earlier this month, my lovely friend Nina celebrated her birthday with a La La Land inspired party. (Have you seen the movie yet?!) She looked gorgeous in a blue dress similar to the one Emma Stone’s character, Mia, wore during the musical scene, “Someone in the Crowd.” I wore a yellow number like the one seen on the movie’s poster. We all had a great time going with this theme. Derek was looking especially dapper in that newsboy cap! This night was one to remember, just like the film.
When he’s not painting the faces of his famous clients to perfection, Beau Nelson is taking inventory of the latest beauty products and investigating them through and through.
We’ve all heard if it’s smooth, supple skin we’re in search of, exfoliating and moisturizing is key. I’m constantly seeking out new ways to upgrade all my routines to ensure I’m getting the best results possible. Upping or maintaining my soft skin game is always on my list of to-dos, so I asked Beau for his list of must-haves for head-to-toe smoothness. I was pleasantly surprised to see the product that tops his list is under $7!
Read on for Beau’s expert skin advice…
Salux Exfoliating Japanese Nylon Cloth
This amazing cloth is reusable, washable, and long enough to hold in both hands so you’re able to scrub your own back really well. For anyone who has ever been to a Korean Spa, this exfoliating cloth is similar to what they use. It really, really exfoliates, so for those with super sensitive skin it might not be the best option. But for everyone else, it’s great. Use this everywhere but especially on elbows, knees and ankles.
Kiehl’s Creme Des Corps
The best all around body lotion. Leaves skin silky with a subtle sheen and is un-fragranced so it won’t interfere with your perfume.
Jordan Seban L’guile Oil This genius product is totally organic and has a subtle neroli fragrance due to the natural oils in it. It works to protect hair and skin by giving back vital nutrients. I like to use Creme Des Corps first and put this on top for extra moisture, especially on elbows and knees. It’s also perfect as a night treatment for hair; put a small amount in the palms of your hands, and work thru hair, you can rinse in the morning. Continue Reading
I’ve gotten several questions in my Ask Jules inbox about changing your skincare routine for the cold winter months. Because LA is a little different than the rest of the world when it comes to chilly temps, I brought in my expert in all things skincare: Spencer Barnes. Not only is Spencer my go-to when it comes to getting glam but he’s also the man with a plan for keeping your skin looking and feeling its best. His advice, like always, was right on point.
Spencer explained that for many, the winter months can cause a change in skin conditions. Our skin is the largest human organ and therefore the front-line defense of the immune system, so a little extra TLC goes a long way! He pointed out if you have normal to oily skin during the warmer months, you may find that in the cooler months your skin actually moves to normal or even dry. So if that sounds like you, definitely hang on to this for later this year. Continue Reading
When it came to shooting the campaign for Giorgio Beverly Hills Glam, my glam squad went all out. Much goes into consideration when you’re creating the look for a campaign. It’s not quite as simple as just “looking pretty.” The team has to brainstorm the story we’re telling and the tone we’d like to convey.
For this campaign, we knew that the Giorgio Beverly Hills girl is clean, pretty, and glamorous. Make-up artist Beau Nelson took that inspiration and my desire to look like myself — natural but with a bit of polish. The look he created was pure perfection! So much so, that many of you have been asking how he created it and with what products. Beau was kind enough to share his tricks of the trade with us all!
I don’t know about you, but winter weather makes my strands slightly unruly. The second my hair gets a hint of the chilly air it decides it’s just gonna do it’s own thing. My feeling about this is if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em! Rather than fight the frizz I just go with it.
With that in mind, I’m in love with this sweet style created by Grace Crivello at the Nine Zero One Salon in West Hollywood! The bobby pins look like an art installation. It’s the perfect style for a regular day or I’m thinking it can be dressed up for a holiday party by using fancier pins in place of regular ones. Continue Reading
Perfume is an extremely personal aspect of my life. No matter where I am in the world — traveling for work, visiting my family, or in the stands cheering for Brooks — having a consistent scent that stays with me keeps me grounded, elevates my confidence, and always makes me feel like myself. For these reasons and more, I’m truly thrilled to be the ambassador for Giorgio Beverly Hills’ newest fragrance, Glam. The notes of jasmine make me feel like I’m at home in nature and the hints of sandalwood and amber evokes my empowered side. It’s strong and powerful but at the same time glamorous and beautiful. I believe it’s important to feel connected to your distinct fragrance because not only does it say a statement about who you are, it can influence and inspire you from within. Like the brand, Glam is timeless, feminine, and sexy. I feel like it embodies a strong, powerful woman in control of her own life. Continue Reading
Lexi, Harley and I were on our way to work on a top secret project (which I can’t wait to share with you guys!) when I took a step back to recognize how much I loved this look. This fringed graphic sweater feels like a dream and the white oxfords made me feel extra fancy.
This style can be recreated for literally any budget! You don’t need a million bucks in the bank to look like — you guessed it — a million bucks! Check out these excellent options for feeling extra cool in your everyday… Continue Reading
A few weeks ago on Dancing with the Stars, I wore a sleek gold dress with a dark red lip and slicked back hair fashioned into a dramatic fishtailed top knot. I knew I loved this look, but I didn’t realize that you all loved it too until I got home and read your comments (thank you, btw!).
There were countless questions about the braided top knot and how stylist Chad Wood hooked it up. I figured it would be best if the creator himself shared his step-by-steps to top knot perfection.
When my friend and hair stylist Riawna arrived to the Dancing With The Stars set last week we immediately burst into laughter.
She was wearing one of my favorite outfits — or, was I wearing hers? I can’t remember. Regardless, we were both wearing one-piece denim jumpers by Forever 21. Riawna and I obviously agree, one and done is the way to go!
A simple, stylish one piece is not only comfortable, it’s ridiculously convenient. You can forget about the stress of putting together an outfit when all you have to do is grab a few accessories and go.

Handbags are getting some serious attention this season as far as accessories go. Most designers went for a very specific and textured look this season. Velvet has taken over accessories in general. Bags, shoes, boots, and other staples are all featuring the soft stuff. Come to think of it, most of the fall trends for purses are all about fluffy or cozy materials.
Here are three bag trends I’m loving right now:
1. Faux Fur
At first, I wasn’t so sure about this style but after some online research, I found appreciation for the “furse.” Is it right for say, brunch? Maybe not. But it could be really cute with a sweater and booties. Or even with the right dress. The only thing I’d avoid with this bag is wearing any other furry clothing or accessory because that would just be too much.
Maybe it was passed down to you from your grandmother, or maybe it was on sale last week. Either way, these precious vintage (or inspired) pieces are versatile and chic. I give them a definite thumbs up. Continue Reading
