I probably didn’t know the word ‘ombre’ 4 months ago, but once I spotted it several times around the interwebs, I became curious. I can neither confirm or deny any rumors that I had to get out my pocket dictionary to find out what it meant, but I can tell you that I know what it means now. Seems to me it’s just a fancy word meaning faded, but that’s ok, I like fancy words. I like ombre too.

Right now this is my favorite way to sport some ombre. I’m seriously considering taking my first plunge into the world of hair dyeing and trying something like the cute girl in the glasses has going on. I’d never try to do it myself, but if you’re braver than me, check out this fab tutorial by Brittnee Cann. (BTW, there are more celebs with this trend over on The Frisky!)
Last but not least put some ombre on your body! Ombre Solo by YSL comes in a variety of colors and has a radiance enhancing formula, y’all! The Stephanie dress by Herve Leger is a part of the pre-fall 2011 collection that uses blacks, whites, and greys to create a monochromatic masterpiece. Oh to own one of Mr. Leger’s classic bandage dresses would be a dream, but the closest I’ll ever come is Rent the Runway! Ombre Essentielle by Chanel seems pretty nifty because you can by apply dry for lighter look or wet for a more dramatic effect.
