Take some inspiration from the guys to create chic casual and evening looks for Spring/Summer '13. On those days where you have to stop and say "I thought it was Spring?" grab Daniel Craig's go-to grey cardigan. Mix and match neutral tones, like cognac and black, and add gold accents to create the feminine version of this look. Summer is festival season! Draw inspiration from Nick Jonas's festival look by wearing cuffed boyfriend jeans, oxfords, and a bowler hat. Finish the look with a small cross-body bag, arm candy and a coral lip gloss. For a night on the town, go bold like Tinie Tempah! This iconic red suit is the star of the show, but you can take it to another level by incorporating a nontraditional take on the black and white trend. Complete your look with a black top, white bow-tie, white clutch, and black pointed toe heels with a bow accent.

Mesmerize the crowd with metallic eye makeup that's perfect for a holiday fete! To create the look, prep the eye with mark. Hold Please Eye Shadow Primer in Light or Medium/Dark, painting it on with a soft blending brush. Starting in the corner of the eye, use a tapered blending brush to apply the dark-brown shade in the Avon 8-in-1 Eye Palette in Paradise Greens, concentrating on the lid and softly blending into the crease. Then use a smudge brush to blend the color under the eye, on the outer third of the lash line.
Using a small, flat, nylon brush, apply the silver shade from the same eye palette onto the inside corner of the eyelid, packing the pigment on for extra punch. Wipe off the excess silver shadow from the brush, then dip it into the gold shade from the 8-in-1 eye palette and pack it onto the center of the lid, lining it up with your pupil for proper placement. With a smudge brush, blend this under the eye as well, concentrating on the inner two-thirds of the lash line.
A coat of Avon Super Drama Mascara on top and bottom lashes, some Avon Smooth Minerals blush in Copper Glow on the apples of the cheeks, and Avon Ultra Color Rich lipstick in Nude and Infused — applied by pressing it into the lips with the ring finger — complete the look.
