The Style Stars of April 2016

We admit it… We’re a bit star-obsessed. And there’s really nothing finer than crossing Hollywood with the heavens, as we hunt for head-turning styles.

The wild and wooly winter season is officially in a heap, just behind us in April’s wake. Rejoice! ’Tis the season of elbows and knees. Already, we’re bopping along under the influence of Mars, Aries’ ruler, and likely you’ve been feeling these feisty effects. (Hot under the collar, perhaps? Or maybe just hot-tempered?)

Aries sits pretty until April 19 before Taurus charges forth for a stay until May 20th. (Can you believe we’re talking about May, already? Hallelujah.) While still in the time of the ravishing Ram (which happens to rule the area of the face, eyes, and brain), we’ll all do well by stepping up our moisturizing regimes. Mask it up at night, slather the SPF all day, play up those facial features that always get noticed (don’t skip mascara), and let’s not forget the obvious: down that water!

There are a number of notable Aries celeb babies to provide inspiration and/or heart palpitations, too. Cobie Smulders, Leona Lewis, Jane Goodall, and Doris Day all share 4/3. Lily James and Agent Carter’s Hayley Atwell are 4/5. Candace Cameron-Bure (4/6) and Patricia Arquette (4/8) are next, followed by Kristen Stewart, Leighton Meester, and Elle Fanning, all on 4/9 (hello!). Are we getting a pattern here yet? There is real fire to be found in these Rams thus fire… Not afraid to be themselves, or to speak their minds. How does that translate style-wise? Fab without the fuss. Be bold, even blunt if that’s your liking. Don’t apologize for how you’re wearing your hair, darling.

Rounding out Aries, we have: Daisy Ridley and Mandy Moore (4/10), Alessandra Ambrosio (4/11), Oscar dazzler Saoirse Ronan (4/12), Carmen Carrera (4/13), Abigail Breslin and Sarah Michelle Gellar (4/14), Emma Watson (4/15), Gina Carano (4/16), Victoria Beckham plus Rooney Mara plus Jennifer Garner (4/17), Kourtney Kardashian and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (4/18), and Kate Hudson (4/19). These are not ladies to be trifled with, nor ignored. Some are so naturally beautiful you can’t take your eyes off of them. Others are legend-status tough and wear their hearts on their sleeves. Go for sexy, experiment with hemlines, and honor the body underneath your ready-to-wear. If you’re in the market for a new exercise routine, the time for waffling is through. You want to be your best self. Get in scrappy shape and then you can wear anything in your closet with confidence.

From 4/20 on, we’ve got Taurus, the Bull, on our hands. April’s leading Taurus ladies include: Queen Elizabeth II (4/21), Amber Heard (4/22), Gigi Hadid (4/23), Kelly Clarkson and Barbra Streisand (4/24), Jordana Brewster (4/26), Jessica Alba and Penelope Cruz (4/28), Uma Thurman and Michelle Pfeiffer (4/29), and Kirsten Dunst plus our new Wonder Woman, Gal Gadot (4/30). These women are bosses. Ballers. Elegance and strength joined. The Taurus is ruled by Venus, not surprisingly. Taurus rules the throat, kidneys, veins, and ovaries, which facilitate flow and regeneration. As you choose your late-month wardrobe, keeps these words handy: Flow. Sophistication. Be the beautiful dame with her name on the door. This doesn’t mean power suit; it means understanding the essence of who you are and honoring every bit of that being. Don’t be stuffy, though… Ask: “Would Jessica Alba wear this?” Maybe don’t ask: “Would the Queen of England wear this?”

We would hate to leave the handsome hombres of April out of this equation, so, let’s skim through our faves. On the Aries side, we’ve got Paul Rudd (4/6), Taylor Kitsch (8/8), Hugh Hefner (4/9), Alex Pettyfer and Charlie Hunnam (4/10), Seth Rogan (4/15), Miguel Cabrera and Conan O’Brien (4/18), and James Franco (4/19). We’ve got humor, swagger, and a bunch of “take me as I am” energy. Guys, maybe do your best upscale version of jeans and a tee, with a nice suit jacket on hand in case you’ve got to duck into a hotspot for some cocktails and deal-making.

May Taurus men include Tony Romo (4/21), John Cena (4/23), Al Pacino (4/25), Channing Tatum (4/26), Jay Cutler (4/29), and Johnny Galecki (4/30). They may be salt-of-the-earth, yet we can’t help but follow them around like puppy dogs. Guys, let “strong like bull” be your guiding style principle during late-April… Act healthy, look healthy. Play up your formidable physique. And remember, you’re never fully dressed without that smile.

OK, Astro adventurers… Until next month!
