So Babes, let me introduce you to my major girl crush and Beauty + Babes Babe of the Week – Lauren Parsekian! Now, if her name doesn’t ring any immediate bells, don’t panic. She isn’t a runway model (although she should be) and she isn’t a Hollywood starlet (although she could be) – she is a producer, director, co-founder of the Kind Campaign, and in terms of public notoriety, the public probably knows her best as the wife of Breaking Bad actor Aaron Paul. The girl is absolutely stunning, and really is the epitome of a woman with beauty and brains. She is so naturally gorgeous and is truly a classic beauty – she has stunning bone structure, an insanely model-esque figure, and DROP DEAD GORGEOUS hair! I cannot get over how natural, shiny, and healthy her long (I’m guessing 24″) blonde locks are. Lauren definitely tops my list of hair envy babes, and to celebrate her as this week’s Babe of the Week, here are her top three looks!
I cannot get over how gorgeous Lauren looks in this stunning floor length deep red gown she rocked to the 2014 Golden Globe awards. I love the deep-v cut neckline, the feature knee-high front slit, and the slight mermaid silhouette – she looks absolutely phenomenal! I am LOVING her hair – voluminous, sleek, and sexy – and her diamond accessories set off the look perfectly. Her smoky makeup is perfect for a red carpet appearance without being over-done, and overall, she looks simply amazing. I almost wish I could cut Aaron out of the shot so we could see more of Lauren’s look – sorry AP!
Lauren does mesh and sheer paneling absolutely RIGHT in this amazing maxi length black gown she wore while supporting her man at the premiere of Need for Speed in March 2014, at the TCL Chinese Theatre in LA. I absolutely adore her ombre hair, and I love the sleek low ponytail she is rocking. Her statement necklace works perfectly with the overall look, and although her dress is mostly 40% sheer, it’s done in a classy and elegant fashion. Lauren looks perfect – I cannot wait to see more of this babe on the red carpet.
My absolutely favourite look of Lauren’s has to be her on her wedding day – she is one of the most beautiful brides I have ever seen. She looks radiant and glowing, and overall just so happy! I am obsessed with her hair which is styled in soft, romantic curls, and her light smokey eye makeup is paired perfectly with soft blush contouring and a nude lip, which is one of my all time favourite make up looks. Her dress is the “Paris” design by Kenneth Pool by Amsale Aberra – she looks amazing in the corset top with sweetheart neckline, which fits her figure perfectly, and the tulle asymmetric gown adds some drama, which is necessary for every bride on her big day! THE BOTTOM LINE: Lauren Parsekian is one smart and sexy babe – Aaron Paul, don’t ever let her go!
So a big, big, BIG thank you to the wonderful and gorgeous babe Danielle who has nominated me for the Liebster Award – what babe doesn’t love awards? Make sure to check out her blog Hiccups and Hounds, to see her makeup and fashion tips, as well as her cute as a button pooch, Avett. Thanks a mil, babe! Continue reading
