Love this duo. Recognize them from the McDonald's commercial? This is "We No Speak Americano", and they are Suzanne Cleary & Peter Harding.

Aren't these dressy bow flats great?! From Topshop.

Beauty Tip

Love the bright fuchsia lipstick and the loosely side-swept bun that Natalie Portman wore to the Gotham Independent Film Awards in New York City. This would be a great look for a holiday party. From InStyle.
