GALLERY>> The Weekend's Top Beauty Looks

This weekend saw some pretty spectacular beauty looks in the form of funky hair-do's, jazzy nails and some good old maquillage. We think these lot might be the best we have seen in a while in fact...

In number one place is Caroline Flack who was spotted living it up in Las Vegas at the weekend. Yep, it's not just Prince Harry who's been enjoying himself in Sin City - Miss Flack was there to film some Xtra Factor antics - in a wedding chapel?! Unfortunatley Harry (Prince or Styles) wasn't with her. But what caught our eye was her gorgeous hair braid in her [a href="/beauty/archive/2012/08/30/caroline-flack-reveals-her-new-blonde-hair-at-the-x-factor.htm">brand new blonde hair[/a] which was hiding underneath her white veil. Top marks to you Caz! We love a braid for its elegant and feminine touch and think it suits her down to the ground.

Duchess of Cambridge

The lovely DoC was out at the Paralympic Games at the weekend and her bouncy hair practically needed a seat of it's own. News came out that she does in fact have a new hair stylist, Amanda Cook Tucker, who has been tending to her tresses and will accopany her on her next Royal Tour with William. This look requires bucket loads of hair spray to stay in place remember.


Sexy RiRi was out at the Rose Club in London on the weekend with a foxy set of nails. Easing herself gently in Autumn Winter, Rihanna worked a perfect set of two-toned nails which has reminded us to dig out our favourite Chanel Rouge Noir. You can see that hers is in fact a matte finish - top marks here girl! Take inspiration from her long talons and try out a similar look yourself for next season, it's always a winner.

Florence Welch

Over at Venice Film Festival, Florence Welch look nothing but gorgeous on the red carpet of the 'Women's Tales' premiere. Aside from her red locks which always look ace, we love Miss Welch's flawless skin and subtle cheek contouring. It really pays to ensure your foundation is the perfect match and to get the blusher shade spot on we recommend choosing a punchy pink as you can layer the shade until it's as you desire. Oh and make like Florence and team your blusher with a nude lip, it always works a treat and suits everyone. Go Flo!

Lady Gaga

As ever, Gaga looked quite the quirky girl when she arrived in Stockholm. Her newly-brown barnet was a bit Amy Winehouse-esque with it's messy up-do vibe and as for the angular fringe, we really quite like it. Oh and we love that the Queen of Pop is clinging on to summer with that punchy shade of raspberry pink lipstick and it's inspired us to do the same while the last summer days are here. Killer glasses too, Ms G.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

On Saturday night we were glued to the Jonathan Ross show to watch blonde bombshell RHW do her thang. As ever she looks beyond amazing in a pair of skintight leather leggings and whilst she talked about her new lingerie line for M&S, we couldn't take our eyes off that mane of hers. Silky and shiny, she shows us how to do tousling without getting out of control. The key is to work a few waves into the front of the hair and leave the back more natural. Oh and don't forget a fabulous smile girls - it's anti-ageing, costs nothing and looks beautiful.

Rita Ora

Lovely Rita Ora was out on Friday night with handsome Harry Styles looking foxy as ever. Apart from her killer red lip, we're loving her jet black brows which are still having a big beauty moment right now. Contrasted against her platinum blonde locks, Miss Ora's monochrome look is sexy and stylish and one that all you blondies out there can try out too. Big on this season's catwalks, it's a flattering and bold look to go for so be sure to give it a whirl...

Cheryl Cole

Making her first public debut since that car crash with, Cheryl Cole made her way to the Radio 1 offices looking gorgeously radiant and beautiful. It pays to smile and as for that perfect mani, you've done us proud Chezza. We love her glossy lip too but it's the nails that have done it for us - we'll be digging out our favourite red polish in an effort to sport nails as good as hers this week. Top marks to you Miss Cole!
