Borrowing clothing from one’s boyfriend is a completely normal thing to do, right? Well leave it to Amy Schumer to make an inane act seem crazy.
We’ve got the breakdown to recreate Amy Schumer’s hair and makeup at home. Even better, we’ll show you how to do it for under 30 bucks.
At just 25, Jennifer Lawrence has already been nominated for three Oscars, starred in two major movie franchises, become the highest paid actress in Hollywood, and captured the hearts of so many with her trips, falls, and insatiable appetite for pizza and various other carbohydrates. But while those defining characteristics are enough to make millions fall in love, it’s her budding friendship with comedienne Amy Schumer, puppy Pippa, devotion to Dior, unfiltered stream of consciousness, and so much more that continues to captivate audiences and grow her ever-adoring fan base. Here, Yahoo Style breaks it all down — just like Lawrence at a Billy Joel concert. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest for nonstop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.
Serena Williams, one of the few women who pose topless in the Pirelli calendar, is April. Photo: Annie Leibovitz Even if you’re unfamiliar with the Pirelli Calendar’s origins, it’s easy to guess its history without opening a book (or, more accurately, looking it up on Wikipedia). Starting in 1964, the Italian tire company tapped top models to pose provocatively for famous photographers with the finished product — an overtly sexual flavor-of-the-month compilation — hanging in garages, repair shops, and boys’ bedrooms around the world. Last year stuck with the half-a-century-long theme: Steven Meisel shot Joan Smalls, Adriana Lima, Isabeli Fontana, Gigi Hadid (with her legs spread!) in a BDSM-themed editorial styled by Carine Roitfeld.
According to Reese Witherspoon, there are five words in just every film with a woman in it that employs the phrase: What do we do now? “It’s my most hated question,” the actress said in her speech on Monday night at Glamour’s 2015 Women of the Year Awards. “I dread reading scripts that have no women involved in their creation because inevitably, the girl turns to the guy and says, ‘What do we do now?’” But, she asked the crowd, "Have you ever met a woman in crisis who doesn’t know what to do?“ Reese Witherspoon in an Erdem dress on the red carpet. Like all the roles she’s portrayed throughout her long career, which she described as "passionate strong and flawed, except for [Election’s] Tracy Flick because she was a hundred percent perfect — and she made me say that.” Some might call her ambitious with a negative connotation to it, she’s also a mom and recently started a fashion line, Draper James, but she wants to turn the word into a positive. "Why do people have prejudiced opinions against women who want to accomplish things?
Have you ever sat in a room so electrified by empowerment that your feet start tapping, your heart starts racing, and your mind is moving in a million different directions? Well I have, and let me tell you, it’s a rush. On Monday night at Carnegie Hall in New York City, Reese Witherspoon, Caitlyn Jenner, Victoria Beckham, Misty Copeland, women impacted by the Charleston shooting, Elizabeth Holmes, Cecile Richards, and the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team were honored as Glamour Women of the Year. Sure, it seems like every other week there’s another women’s magazine handing out an award to some celebrities with their famous friends in the audience at a glitzy event. But this one was different. Instead of Hollywood’s elite coming together to praise each other’s works of art — ugh, ugh, ugh, a thousand ughs — this one took the time to celebrate women who have done extraordinary things from ordinary beginnings, and spoke to the people on how — and why — the could (and should) do the same. Look at Elizabeth Holmes as an example. Her dream as a child was to invent something that would change the world and at 19, she did just that. Now, a little more than a decade later, she has her name on hundreds of patents, has created a company worth billions, and changed millions of lives through science. “Do everything you can to be the best in science, and math, and engineering,” she told the young audience in the nosebleed section, consisting of students and members of Girls, Inc., The Girl Project, and the Boys & Girls Club. “If you want to be an artist, or an astronaut, or an athlete, or a scientist, or a doctor, those skills, that language will help you to be the best and go all into it and break the stereotype that we can’t be the best in these fields.” But it wasn’t just the teenagers, so excited to see Selena Gomez that their screams might’ve bursted some eardrums, who were dished out inspiring advice. Reese Witherspoon, an actress known for her roles in Election, Walk the Line, and Legally Blonde, has, in the past few years, become a mega-producer in the film industry, focusing strictly on projects with interesting and positive roles for women, not those that cast them in the archetypical submissive role to a man. “Films with women at the center are not a public service project, they are a big time, body-mind enhancing, money-making commodity.” Victoria Beckham, the former Spice Girl and current designer, takes the same approach and applies it through her career. “It started with the Spice Girls and girl power and I want to send that same message to women through my collections,” she said. “I want to support, empower, and really make women feel like the best versions of themselves.”It’s possible that Beckham, whose 16-year-old son Brooklyn presented her with her award (again, cue the shrieks), might have a new client in Caitlyn Jenner, who happens to have recently found her authentic self. “For years and years, I never felt like I fit in anywhere. I always felt as an outsider. I never felt good on the male side and I wasn’t obviously on the female side. I was kind of stuck in the middle, but all of a sudden, after making this decision and coming out, it was by far the best thing I ever did, because for so many years, I lost my enthusiasm for life,” the 66-yar-old, who was wearing a custom Jeremy Scott gown in royal blue with an off-the-shoulder silhouette. “Now, actually, I like going out and I like being myself.”So here’s my personal advice: watch these women’s speeches (click here to view them all), read some choice quotes throughout this slideshow (be sure to have your tissues and Twitter at the ready!), and be inspired.

What do you get when some of the most amazing women in Hollywood come together for one night only? A whole lot of feminism, empowerment, incredible fashion, and lots of expletive-ridden speeches. For the 22nd Annual ELLE Women in Hollywood Awards, held on Monday night at the Four Seasons Los Angeles at Beverly Hills on Monday, Kate Winslet, Carey Mulligan, Alicia Vikander, Amy Schumer, Ava Duvernay, and Meryl Streep, were all honored with trophies in addition to their magazine covers. Shailene Woodley, who walked her first red carpet in months to honor her Divergent co-star Winslet, Zoe Kravitz and her boyfriend Twin Shadow, Nina Dobrev, Mary J. Blige, and Johnson’s entire family — Tippi Hedren, Melanie Griffith, and Stella Banderas — were all in the audience. The biggest lesson learned (and there were plenty, such as that wearing a belt over one’s stomach will never be chic no matter how many hours an individual clocks at the gym) is that Meryl Streep was the most popular woman in the room, probably in Hollywood, and maybe even in the world. Every single person who had the opportunity to speak gave a shot-out to the star. Lena Dunham even called the 66-year-old her BFF and Schumer gave the Suffragette star a “hey girl.” Attendees have even taken to hashtagging their Instagrams from the event #Meryl. Lots of golden statues aren’t enough — give this woman a crown. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest for nonstop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.
Don’t listen to the messages insisting your body needs to fit with impossibly set societal standards — listen to Amy Schumer. The comedienne appeared on the Today Show Friday to discuss body image, her own struggles with it, and her efforts to help change how debilitating poor self esteem can be. “It’s an emotional thing,” she admitted to Maria Shriver about her battle with body issues. “It’s been a struggle for me my whole life, and especially just being in the entertainment industry.
For fall, we love the versatile look of a grey smoky eye. It’s a little subtler than using black shadow and works on a wide range of skin tones. A popular and versatile style, the smoky eye has been back in the spotlight ever since Amy Schumer thanked her makeup artist, Andréa Tiller, on stage at the Emmys for giving her the look. We reached out to Tiller and makeup artist Fiona Stiles to give us their foolproof tips and rounded up our favorite fall smoky shadow palettes so you can DIY at home.Prime your lids“For any smoky eye application, I would start with an eyeshadow primer for long wear, to prevent creasing, and to prevent shadow residue from dropping on upper cheek bones or under eyes,” says Tiller. She likes Urban Decay Anti-Aging Eyeshadow Primer Potion ($24) when doing a subtle wash of color and a tinted cream shadow, like Laura Mercier’s Caviar Stick ($28) as a primer for a more intense smoky eye.Blend strategicallyWhen it comes to a smoky eye, blending is the most important step. After applying your shadow, be sure to blend the edges using a blending brush or your finger. Stiles advises to start slow, and build your color gradually the shadow from looking too harsh. “If you have smaller eyes, be sure to blur and blend out the edges to give the illusion of a bigger eye,” she says.Add linerTo amp up your look, Tiller suggests adding a black or dark grey liner to your waterline. “If you want more definition and drama, take the same pencil liner and frame your eyes with it by drawing a thin line on the top and bottom of your lash lines,” says Tiller. Her favorite is Urban Decay 24/7 Perversion Eye Pencil ($24), which is waterproof — making it perfect to use on your waterline.Don’t forget your lashesFinish the look with by curling your lashes and adding a few coats of your favorite mascara. “When you do a darker eye, it can close up the shape of the eye,” says Stiles. “Curling your lashes insures a wide, open eye.” Apply mascara to top and bottom lashes and hit the town!

Amy Schumer’s Inside Amy Schumer just won the first ever Emmy Award for Outstanding Variety Sketch Series, and while on stage accepting her award, Schumer remarked that she should have prepared a speech beforehand. “Thanks everybody who helped me — the girl who gave me this smoky eye,” she said, giving a shout out to her makeup artist. Right before Schumer accepted the award, Tiller post a photo on Instagram of the makeup team doing touchups right in front of the Emmys stage.
While the movie’s title, Trainwreck, might imply that the stars would show up to the New York premiere looking as such, the actors were anything but. Amy Schumer shined in a black midi dress with leather bodice, Bill Hader looked dapper in a slate blue suit and every bit the leading man that he is, and LeBron James — not just a basketball standout — showed off some sleek sunglasses. Their guests, including the film’s director and producer Judd Apatow as well as his family, Leslie Mann, Maude Apatow, and Iris Apatow in fun summer frocks, former tennis pro Chris Evert in a red mini dress, and Andy Cohen inexplicably in a Canadian tuxedo, all brought their best style game as well.

Amy Schumer is on the August cover of Glamour. Leave it to Amy Schumer to give Glamour magazine one of the most funny, totally candid, and real interviews ever. While Schumer has been on the comedy circuit for over a decade, her deadpan, raunchy, NSFW humor is suddenly everywhere.
I went to a screening of Trainwreck this week. I’m not allowed to say anything, other than that it’s maybe one of the best comedies I’ve ever seen. But at the end, my editor turned to me and said, “Wait,Amy Schumer wrote it?” She was sure Judd Apatow had.
