Is there anyone who doesn’t know the formidable Ms. Erica Kane? Erica was envied, hated, loved and cheered on as she dished out the dirt daily on the set.
The role is played to perfection by Susan Lucci. From teenager to fashionista, each viewer was glued to the TV to see what Erica Kane would be up to. Makeup junkies were all obsessed by what she would wear — naturally.
No one can deliver a bitchy reply quite like this daytime diva can. Whether she was sporting gold lame’, or her all business style suit, or twirling in a fashion show in Paris or Milan. Who would dare step in the way of this pint-sized powerhouse?
We thought of some ways to pay homage to the “Queen” of quips by showing you how you can steal Erica’s signature looks.
What we dig: her bold eye shadow and crimson lips. Want to grab this starlet’s style for your own? Try Stila Stunning Starlet Palette ($25) at Stilacosmetics.com which is part of the E!

We also recommend Stila Cherry Crush lip & cheek stain ($24) as a way to embrace your Erica “Crush.” This revolutionary multi-tasker not only moisturizes and protects skin with all important anti-oxidants (cherry and pomegranate extracts), but it beautifully reacts to pH levels in your skin and creates a personalized blush and pout.
