Last night's Oscars was a star studded event as always with designers pulling out the couture and the rarest jewels are accompanied by security lined the red carpet.

Fashion Radar: Bubblegum Electric

Neons are huge this spring , note previous post this month but a big focus is on the color pink. Bubble gum pink is the color to sport this spring whether it be pink on pink or a pop of the trend in a an accessory. Denim pink is the new blue jeans.We saw a huge trend in red jeans in winter- we are going lighter with PINK.  Photo to left (The Cut) is from Chanel's pre fall collection where you can see this bright pink trend is going no where in 2012. So stock up Dolls!

Take note from SJP herself as she has been seen numerous times frolicking with a bright pink bag these days. The Diane De Maria bag ($1,462) bag is right on trend !

The hottest color jeans with stretch is these cigarette bubble gum pants by Rag & Bone for $187.

 Be bubblegum- business like with this blazer from Forever 21 in the great pink hue. Easy to throw over gray or a black dress. And for $24 you can't go wrong!

I love this Bright pink Blouse from Rachel Roy for $49. Belt it or wear it with leggings and heels.

If you are looking for something summery to rock this trend. Try this commitment proof choice from Aero. A neon pink, eyelet skirt. Perfect to transition into summer. For $22 you can't go wrong.

PrivyGUY: The Glasses that will Make us See YOU

Casual and rock N' Roller brand, John Varvatos has an eyewear line that is something PrivyGUY must see with his own eyes. From the man that makes the wardrobe of my future dream man, the Varvatos brand has added eyewear to the must have for a dreamy Privy GUY.  There are six new frames that are edgy enough to make a doll turn her head but modern to go with everything you already own and not look like a hipster. The bold acetate and classic frames are 100% UV protection but  I cannot promise it will protect you from being checked out. Frames run between $200-$400 and can be found at www.johnvarvatos.com More details on the frames are below.

There are five optical options, from fine three-piece mounts to vintage inspired acetates, thoughtfully hand-crafted in Japan for optimal quality. V142 is the ultimate in refined eyewear, constructed from a sophisticated three-piece mount with discerning filigree detail on the brushed metal temples. In a charismatic Chianti color option, the V345 has brave geometry and signature guitar head hinges. Take the classic rectangle shape that works for most every man, cast it in striking gradient acetate and you have the V346. Ultra light weight construction in slender shape, V347 has a retro style and strong flexibility. The V348 is an optical wardrobe essential, a frame that completes the head to toe Varvatos look.

Beauty: The Inside of Ingrowns New Product Launches

 Many women suffer from something we rarely talk about. In grown hairs. It's something we often leave up to our waxer to deal with when we see her or we take it in our own hands for a painful extraction. Some are more prone than others, and those that suffer I promise will be thanking the beauty gods for an answer. A new product completely designed and developed by skin guru, Daniela of Daniela's Facial studio has done it again. She solved a huge problem for many women. Women who love lace and skinny jeans!  Daniela is offering $5 off for PrivyDoll readers, see more details on this amazing product and check out her site for a free sample size!
About the product: Daniela has invented a revolutionary new approach to the pesky problem of ingrown hairs along the bikini line, especially bothersome since the advent of skinny jeans, thong underwear and lace panties, along with those awful butt and thigh breakouts that say, "you sit way too much at your job".

Many clients are raving about this product in a series of trials the feedback was stunning she says.

What it is exactly :  An anti-inflammatory body powder, dusted on affected areas every day before getting dressed and once again before vigorous activity such as working out or lots of walking or running. Some people also find that a mid-day application during work hours with long-term sitting is very helpful.  It's called FerroRosa FrictionFix (TM) - Ferro meaning iron, Rosa meaning pink. The iron oxides in two of the major ingredients give this amazing powder its pink color as well as its anti-inflammatory properties.  

What it does :  Provides a barrier between your clothes and your skin that is both anti-inflammatory and protective at the same time, healing what is already there, preventing what would be there.  Absorbs moisture, calms irritation, reduces redness and prevents friction with a proprietary blend of calamine, zinc oxide, corn starch and clay.

What's the catch :  It must be used every day for real results, and it's really, really pink. It can come off on clothes, but it will not stain.

What's it cost :  4oz full size bottle is $20,  1oz travel size jar is $7.    Just for Privy Doll  readers, $5 off your first order. Discount code : privydoll. This discount applies for any other purchase from the web site as well.

Fashion Radar: I'm Blushing

Blush tones are everywhere for Spring 2012. Including the Red Carpet. Gowns were flowing at the past award season with blushing tones. Blush Tees, chiffons and dresses make this trend so wearable. It makes you look fresh, possibly even tanner and angelic with its softness. Pair with light bottoms or jeans for a great lightly, fluttered look. Here are PrivyDoll's top picks to achieve this trend.

The Golden Globes honored this trend with designers dressing their stars in semi nude-blush dresses. Here are a few of my favorites!

This 'Chelsea Cape Tee' from Chicago designer, C/Fan captures this trend perfectly. The movement is inevitable and the ladylike touches are  interesting.

You want to keep a light , airy feel to this trend. Nothing that bogs you down or drapes too heavily.

This blouse from  ZAMRIE is a perfec, accessible top to rock this trend. Pair with a skinny pant or pencil skirt.

Fashion Radar: Mr. Brightside

Spring is time to drop the black on black garb and take some risks.. it is almost summer for goodness sake and the winter seems like a distant past. Brighten up your mood and your wardrobe with neons and brights. A huge trend for this season. What is the easiest way to integrate this eye popping look? Bright colored denim and bright accessories to pop your otherwise dull look. Take a look at some of these best picks for the season. PrivyDoll Approved.
Bebe is all over the 'bright trend'. These are my top picks to accessories what you already have to turn it into a bright 2012 look.
Easily throw on a yellow beaded headband to add some color to your life.

For a statement of neon. I am obsessing over this oh-so-funky statement necklace found on Charm & Chain!
Another great way to brighten up your look is with a maxi skirt. think 80's but longer. Make sure it hits almost to your knees for a perfect form- fitting look instead of looking like you rolled out of the club. Choosing a color like this bright tangerine its a great basic to pair with black and white or even pink. $68 from BeBe.
Neon Denim is the easiest way to rock this trend in a casual way. These highlighter yellow jeans from Zara are $79 and perfect for spring and summer!

Fashion Radar: Pastel Petal Color Trend

The most delicate of the color spectrum. Pastels. This spring color trend is not your Easter egg uniform. It is chic, and also takes a bit of the color blocking to a new spring level with subtle pairings. The pastels hit many runways this year including Jill Stewart and Ralph Lauren (pictured in main photo). My January fashion radar post included 'mint' as a must have color. It has come true and more and more designers are picking up on this fantastic spring color trend.

Jill Stewart Spring 2012

I love this nude colored leather jacket from AKIRA for $89. It is the perfect layering piece for the chilly spring days. The color can still match any of these pastel colors perfectly!

I love this dusty rose colored dress from Nasty Gal. For$58.

 I adore this mint corset dress. The airy hemline and perfect pastel bottom color is a great choice for this season. Found on Asos for $98.
