What does one wear to meet your couple BFF's when they're arriving for a visit to your home? Well, when that couple are royals, and you're there in your capacity as the Prime Minster's wife, it's got to be good.
Sophie Gregoire Trudeau kept things Canadian last night, wearing aubergine Tanya Taylor to welcome Will and Kate to Canada. If you're looking to copy Sophie's look, too bad - the dress is apparently a custom piece.

Brides, take note.
The best new bridal party activity is courtesy of Rodarte's spring/summer 2017 show, where hairstylist Odile Gilbert and her team used leftover scraps of fabric from the clothing to create about 80-90 custom hair accessories.
"We bought some headbands and barrettes, and created some flowers and ribbons," explains Gilbert of the process. "You cut into the material, you twist it and tie it and put it on a barrette in an easy way. It’s nothing special, everybody can do that. It's something you don't think is easy, but it’s easy."
The project took them one day – "[There was a] big table and music," says Gilbert. For a bridal party, try using material cut from a dress that was altered, or buy fabric specifically for the task if none if available. The key to preventing the accessories from falling out is buying quality barrettes: Gilbert used a classic French brand, but see what is available at your drugstore.
Models were outfitted with a minimum of three accessories – a combination of barrettes and headbands, placed in "unexpected ways" – and sometimes more, depending on the outfit. "We wanted the accessories to look like a kid did it in school, like if it's Mother’s Day and instead of buying something you create something for your mom," says Gilbert. They were placed so not to be visible from the front, leaving the focus on the dress. "In the back, you have the surprise," she adds.
"There was no inspiration. It was Rodarte. It’s based off the collection," Gilbert notes. "It's funny, because everybody always asks, 'Is it the '20s, is it the '30s?' No, no: It's 2016, going into 2017. So it’s today. A girl who wants to look pretty and beautiful, that's the inspiration."
Just don't forget to blend.
We’ve all been told that foundation should look like skin. This, of course, means skin in the best possible version of itself: poreless, even-toned and free of blemishes. These latest foundations got the memo. Urban Decay All Nighter has three times as much pigment as the brand’s Naked Skin line for total coverage. Smashbox tested its new range in a photo studio to ensure that it holds up under any type of lighting. Skincare ingredients are found in both Almay Age Essentials (collagen, hyaluronic acid, peptides) and Vichy Teint Idéal (vitamin C). L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Glow stays put for up to 24 hours, and the hydrophobic pigments in Chanel Teint Ultra Tenue keep it in place even in extreme humidity. Then there are the shade ranges: Urban Decay, Smashbox and Chanel boast 24, 22 and 16 shades respectively. Get glowing.

Supermodel sisters Gigi and Bella Hadid were greeted by the usual frenzy of fans and paparazzi after walking in Max Mara’s Spring 2017 show when things took a frightening turn.
As they navigated through the crowd, a complete stranger crept behind Gigi and lifted her off the ground. Others are now reporting it was notorious celebrity prankster, Vitalli Sediuk, who, if you recall, got slapped in the face by Will Smith after trying to kiss him on the red carpet at the Men in Black 3 Moscow premiere and was arrested for crashing the stage at the Grammys in 2013.
Whoever it was, it wasn’t funny. The panicked model instinctively reacted by shouting and elbowing him in the face. “Let go of her,” cried Bella.
It didn’t take long for him to put her down and just casually walk away. Gigi, visibly shaken, stormed after him, yelling, before turning around to get back to the car.
She took to Twitter after the incident to address her actions.
and had EVERY RIGHT to defend myself. How dare that idiot thinks he has the right to man-handle a complete stranger. He ran quick tho 👊🏼😏🐱— Gigi Hadid (@GiGiHadid) September 22, 2016
She’ll probably need a talk with her security detail, even if she can clearly hold her own in a dangerous situation.
