  • Get Ready for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 With These Two Sneak Peeks!

    It's FINALLY almost time to see The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 in theaters, and we couldn't be more excited! The first part of the film finale comes out this Friday November 21st, so more and more sneak peeks are making their way out to the media. The most recent ones come by way of a movie clip and a release of one of Lorde's songs from the official soundtrack!

    Let's start with the movie clip! The stars of Mockingjay Part 1 stopped by Good Morning America recently to share the clip and answer some questions from fans. The clip shows Katniss watching Peeta plead with District 13 to stop the war, and Gale does not agree with the course Peeta has seemingly taken. Check out the emotional new teaser, and keep watching to hear all the very important (read: sarcasm!) questions Jennifer answers for her fans!

    Now on to the new song release! If you didn't already know, singer/songwriter Lorde curated the whole The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 soundtrack! She didn't only choose what artists and songs go into the soundtrack, but she's added some of her own into the mix, as well! Well, from what we've heard so far, she's done an amazing job with it, and the newest released song proves that even more! Lorde most recently released her cover of Bright Eye's "Ladder Song" from the soundtrack, and we can already tell how perfectly it fits with the theme and tone of the upcoming movie.

    It's shaping up to look like an incredible movie, just like the first two films in the series. With the movie out at the end of this week, we're sure there will be many more sneak peeks released in the coming days. We'll keep our eyes out and make sure to share them with you as we see them!

  • Catch Fire with Precious Formals & CoverGirl!

    We are so excited for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire premiere on November 22nd, that not only are we re-reading the novel, we're also finding ways to celebrate the release! Two of our favorite names in the fashion world, CoverGirl and Precious Formals, have been all about the Hunger Games. CoverGirl recently released a new makeup collection, called the Capitol Collection, in honor of the second Hunger Games movie. They've created signature looks for each of Panem's 12 Districts, from Luxury to Mining (and everything in between). Best yet, dress designer Precious Formals loved this idea so much that they recently showed how you can perfectly pair CoverGirl's district inspired makeups with their dresses for a complete look. Read on and pick a district to represent at your Prom or during the Holidays!

    CoverGirl Hunger Games District 1 Makeup

    This makeup was created by CoverGirl for District 1. Precious Formals recommends pairing the makeup with Style L46736, a mermaid evening gown that has shimmery golden lining that peaks through the gaps of the gown's lace-and-sequins overlay.

    CoverGirl Hunger Games District 2 makeup

    The makeup in the above picture was created by CoverGirl for District 2. Precious Formals style L9034 is the perfect dress choice for this district's representation of Masonry. Silver groups of sequins accent the body, scoop neckline, and sheer long sleeves of this chic and flirty dress.

    CoverGirl Hunger Games District 3 Makeup

    District 3 represents Technology, and CoverGirl's District 3 makeup and Precious Formals style P46728 are the perfect pair for this district. Multi-hued sequins create intricate Aztec tribal prints throughout this trendy short dress, with the exception of the neckline's small gemstone embellishments.

    CoverGirl Hunger Games District 4 makeup

    This makeup look was created by CoverGirl for District 4. Precious Formals recommends pairing it with Style P21017, an elegant gown that emits a holographic shimmer and features diamond-adorned halter straps that criss-cross in the back. It's definitely as shiny as a fish!

    CoverGirl Hunger games District 5 makeup

    The above makeup look was created by CoverGirl for District 5, which represents Power. Radiate beautifully in Precious Formals C10559, a strapless sweetheart mermaid gown encrusted with sequins and shiny stones that comes in a neon yellow and purple.

    CoverGirl HungerGames District 6 makeup

    This makeup look was created by CoverGirl for District 6, Transportation. Precious Formals says to pair it with Style W21046, a simple A-line silhouette accented by holographic sequins and purple gemstones.

    CoverGirl Hunger Games District 7 makeup

    CoverGirl's District 7 makeup can be perfectly paired with Precious Formals P46712A for a pretty green and yellow colored look that represents Lumber. It's a gorgeous dress that has asymmetrical waist cutouts and a single sheer sleeve in Ombre chiffon. It definitely gives this A-Line a very tropical appeal!

    Hunger Games District 8 CoverGirl makeup

    This makeup created by CoverGirl for District 8 can be paired with Precious Formals style L9005 to show off the beautiful colors associated with textiles. A thigh-high slit, scoop back and elongated front keyhole cutout spice up this shimmery high-necked gown.

    CoverGirl Hunger Games District 9 makeup

    CoverGirl's District 9 makeup is simple and natural, with just the right amount of shine. And, that's exactly why Precious Formals style P46772 is the perfect match! The dress' soft gold color stands out in a beautifully elegant way.

    CoverGirl Hunger Games District 10 makeup

    This makeup look was created by CoverGirl for District 10, which represents Livestock. Precious Formals recommends pairing it with Style P10561, a stunning mermaid gown with a corset sheer bodice and sweetheart neckline.

    CoverGirl Hunger Games District 11 makeup

    CoverGirl's District 11 makeup would look beautiful with Precious Formals P9060 to represent Agriculture. Sequins cover this plunging-halter gown until just below the hipline, where the sequined pattern spreads out to reveal a sheer floor-length skirt.

    CoverGirl Hunger Games District 12 makeup

    Lastly, District 12 is where the protagonist of The Hunger Games, Katniss, is from, and the dark colors with just the right hint of yellow/gold used in CoverGirl's District 12 makeup and Precious Formals style P9037 are a perfect representation of it. The sheer-paneled slits cut diagonally across the bodice and straight down one side of this sexy slitted gown makes Style P9037 particularly unique and reminds us of Katniss' braid!

  • 5 MUST-SEE Movies for Summer 2013!

    We recently made a blog post about ways to avoid the summer heat and humidity and one of the ways included going to the movies! A movie date with friends, family or a significant other is definitely exciting and something to look forward to! If you're stuck on what you should see, here are some summer blockbusters that you need to check off your movie list!

    the_great_gatsby_movie-wide

    Number one on our list is definitely The Great Gatsby! The Great Gatsby premiered on May 10, 2013. It's a very modern translation of the classic literature book from the Flapper Era, however, it still represents the "Classic" feel that is portrayed in the book. Definitely a must-see, especially if you love fashion! And, if after seeing the movie, you decide you want to rock that 1920s look, just check out our blog post on fashion inspiration from The Great Gatsby.

    Monsters-University-2013-Wallpaper-HD-for-Desktop

    No matter how old you are, you are never too old to see a Pixar movie! Ever since Monsters Inc. first came out, everyone has been anxiously waiting for a sequel (or in this case a prequel)! Thankfully, on June 21, 2013 Monsters University premiered. It's a great family movie and it will keep you laughing the whole way through!

    grown-ups2

    Grown Ups was a HUGE success in 2010, therefore, it's no surprise that they made a sequel to the movie! Grown Ups 2 premiered on July 12, 2013. This movie is full of laughs and great actors. I mean, how could it not be funny? Adam Sandler is in it! He is one of the funniest actors and he also produced the movie! If you're a fan of comedy I would definitely suggest seeing Grown Ups 2!

    nowy ou see me

    Who isn't a fan of magic? I know I am! Now You See Me premiered on May 31, 2013 and it focuses on four magicians who pull off some pretty extreme magic tricks, like robbing a bank. This movie will definitely keep you on the edge of your seat, and it has a very unexpected ending. But, then again, when it comes to magicians you should expect the unexpected, right?

    one-direction-this-is-us-film-3d

    Lastly, One Direction: This Is Us, has many many people (especially their girl fandom) looking forward to seeing what concert life is like for the boy band. Following in the footsteps of Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus and other artists, the movie will be revolving around their life on tour. It should definitely be interesting and very insightful! The movie premiers on August 30, 2013 and we're definitely looking forward to it.

    What are some movies you're looking forward to seeing this summer?

  • Keira Knightley at the 'Anna Karenina' NYC Premiere

    Keira Knightley's newest film, 'Anna Karenina' had its New York premiere at Florence Gould Hall earlier this month (on Nov. 7th). The British actress wore a stunning navy blue long-sleeve lace evening gown on the red carpet.

    We loved her classy look with the lace dress and how she kept it simple by wearing a tight bun and only earrings for jewelry. The red lipstick was the perfect touch against the navy gown.

     As we've mentioned in past posts, lace is a very popular trend right now (Kristen Stewart wore lace at the Los Angeles Breaking Dawn 2 premiere). If you'd love to rock a long sleeve lace evening gown just like Keira for your next formal event, the below dresses are great options!

    A. Mac Duggal 78704R - A black lace one-shoulder evening gown. The dress features delicate lace and bead designers that travel from the hip to the wrist of the single sheer sleeve. A thigh high slit adds excitement but does not take away from the classy look of the dress.

    B. Mac Duggal 85007R - Keep it classic in this A-line style evening dress featuring a voluminous skirt that hits just above the ankle. The exquisite sheer fabric on the top is filled with intricate beaded floral designs that travel down to the three-quarter length sleeves. Perfect for a formal affair.

    C. Claudine for Alyce 2242 - Give the lace look new meaning in pink! The dress features 3/4 length sleeves, a mermaid/trumpet skirt, high mandarin collar, and a peek-a-boo back.

    The film 'Anna Karenina' also stars Jude Law and Aaron Taylor-Johnson. It is set in late 19th Century Russia high-society and is about Anna, who is an aristocrat that enters into a life-changing affair with Count Vronsky (Jude Law). The story is adapted from Leo Tolstoy's novel of the same name.

    Are you excited for the film? None of us here at Rissy Roo's have seen it yet, but we're hoping to soon! Let us know what you thought by leaving a comment below if you've seen it!
