Kate Moss Reveals Tanning Habits for Allure; Chloe Norgaard’s Rainbow-Hair Connection; Diptyque’s New Digs; and More-------
Kate Moss covers the August issue of Allure—her ninth cover for the magazine. In the article, the notoriously private supermodel open up about everything from her early insecurities regarding posing nude (“I used to be so scared about ‘Oh, I don’t want to show my body.’ Now that I’ve shown it, it doesn’t bug me about my moles, or ‘This isn’t big enough’ and ‘That’s not smooth enough.’”) to her well-documented tanning habits (“I don’t mind a bikini bottom. My husband likes lines on the bum—men like white bums, like a frame. I don’t do it on the boobs, though—I try not to have a white boob.”). Moss also broke down her daily beauty routine, saying, “I use that Moroccanoil stuff, and then I blow-dry [hair] upside down and brush it. Maybe I’ll give it a back-comb at the top.” And her cardinal hair-care rule? “Always clean hair. That’s a must. If in doubt, wash it.” Simple enough, right?
Chloe Norgaard has built a modeling career on her Technicolored tresses. In a video accompanying United Colors of Benetton’s Fall ’13 campaign, in which she stars alongside a slew of musicians and other fresh faces, the catwalker-cum-DJ discusses her first blue dye job in first grade: “My favorite color to have in my hair is rainbow. I can’t choose just one and love all colors except for brown.”
Diptyque disciples, rejoice: The cult French perfumer and candle purveyor announced that it will be opening its third New York store at 242 Mott Street in Nolita early next month. Bring on the eaux.
With this melt-your-face-off heat wave in New York showing no signs of letting up, we’ve been brushing up on warm-weather skincare. In addition to SPF protection, The Guardian advises: “Don’t even think about foundation, powder, and any elaborate makeup in this heat. Just apply sunblock, then a tinted moisturizer, and some concealer over any spots.” It also encourages switching to a waterproof mascara. In the same vein, BellaSugar’s roundup of blow-dryer-free hairstyles, including plenty of updated updos, was also helpful.
