Marc Anthony Dazzles Vanderpump Rules Beauties

With the holidays just around the corner, now is the time celebrities and A-listers turn to haircare icon Marc Anthony for his latest beauty inspirations. All the stars will be in alignment on November 1st as STAR magazine hosts an exclusive VIP event at a private New York salon, featuring Marc Anthony of Marc Anthony Cosmetics with Ariana Madrix and Scheana Shay of the hit Bravo TV series, Vanderpump Rules.

While the guest list is limited, the beauty and styling options are limitless. Marc Anthony and STAR magazine have collaborated to create, “The Fab Girls’ Guide to the Holidays” showcasing Marc Anthony True Professional® hair care products to help us all get ready for the holiday party circuit and keep the glam going all night long. “Nothing says holiday more than healthy hair that shines and my Argan Oil of Morocco Collection delivers endless shine,” says Marc Anthony.


The two Vanderpump Rules beauties are style mavens to millions and are fashion and beauty experts in their own right. “I can’t imagine making Ariana and Scheana more beautiful; they personify beauty,” Marc Anthony said. Ariana dyed part of her hair pink at OK! magazine’s Splat event in New York on October 5th to join in the effort to raise awareness for breast cancer this month. “The way Ariana pulled off that pink was brilliant and she can easily rehydrate her dyed hair with my Argan Oil of Morocco Deep Condition Treatment to get her hair back to perfection.  And let’s talk about Scheana’s gorgeous locks, I can’t wait to add a bit of a sexy evening look to her hair — a quick spritz of my Coconut Oil & Shea Butter Dry Styling Oil will keep her mane looking soft and shiny for days to come, Marc Anthony said.”


Celebrity Hairstylist and Brand Innovator, Marc Anthony will be sharing his ‘insider tips’ and ‘trends’ at events throughout the US and Canada this holiday season so don’t miss out!

Cloud Nine Engagment Ring from Anjolee

Anjolee introduced their new engagement ring sets and stud earrings to the bridal jewelry line. There’s so much excitement when receiving an engagement ring but customers want to ensure its quality and clarity.

I received the Anjolee Cloud Nine Engagement Ring for review and the band is simply gorgeous!


The biggest concern when purchasing an engagement ring is the price. Anjolee has designed pieces that will meet everyone’s budget.  Customers can select payment options through Bill Me Later, Credit Card or Paypal.

Most importantly, the company also educates its customers on setting types and care services.


My birthday’s coming soon and I can’t wait to accessorize with the Anjolee Cloud Nine Engagement Ring.

unnamed-7 unnamed-8

The show received overwhelming accolades; not just for the fabulous designs, and exciting looks, but for the ability to purchase any of the pieces immediately upon the completion of the show; either online or at the Julian Chang boutique in Miami’s MIMO district. Chang also included unique couture pieces that were specifically designed for the show and are only available locally in Miami. In the past retail customers have had to wait six months or longer to purchase the fashions they see on the runway.  However, as Julian stated; “Technology is advancing and as a consequence the industry is evolving,and we all need to recognize that our clients’ expectations are changing.  To remain relevant we designers need to meet and exceed our customers’ expectations. Consequently we are making our designs available to our clients in “real time”; “what they see, is what they can get”; now, when they want it and are excited about having just seen it on the runway.”

Julian is currently showing his Fall/Holiday Collection along with some of the designs that will be in his Spring Collection.
