I’ve never seen Jessica Szhor look as hot as she did at the recent Samsung Hope For Children Gala. The actress stepped out in a softly tousled lob with the sex appeal and the texture to make beauty buzzers go off –– former beau, Ed Westwick, must be drooling. The style frames her face well. The side-swept bangs drift to the brow, drawing attention to her piercing eye color; the soft and pretty waves accent her strong bone structure; and the dark chocolate color features ribbons of caramel that makes her complexion sparkle. I love this smoldering look –– it’s hot and easy to emulate. Click through to style notes to learn how. –– Michelle Rotbart  Click for StyleNotes →
