Katherine Heigl appears to have arrived at that crossroads in her career faced by so many others before her, that moment when a conscious decision is made to leave the blonde bombshell associations behind and head for more respectable brunette pastures. Or perhaps she was just in the mood for a change. Either way, the once and future Grey’s Anatomy star turned up to the Los Angeles premiere of her new movie The Ugly Truth with a new set of auburn locks. (Whether it will help or hinder her apparent knack for landing rom-com leads remains to be seen.) Which look do you like better?
Despite a later-in-life affinity for The O.C. (we hopped on the bandwagon around season four), we were never really huge Rachel Bilson fans until she emerged as something of a fashion darling after the show’s demise. A big 3.1 Phillip Lim devotee, she turned out for the Vogue-sponsored one-year anniversary party for the designer’s L.A. store in a head-to-toe look from a past collection and makeup to match the line’s dressed-up, down-to-earth aesthetic. A clean face, pink blush on the apples of her cheeks, and mascara on both the top and bottom lashes spelled put-together but not overdone, which seemed a bit more young Hollywood than Orange County to us. You?
A forever fan of flame hair and a red lip, Vivienne Westwood changed it up last night at the Burma VJ premiere in London—sort of. The Brit designer made an orange-colored silk scarf look nearly as good as her own tresses, which she complemented with her signature lip color and an interesting red/brown cat-eye. It’s something that could prove difficult to pull off for the average dame, but not this one, apparently. Thoughts on the look?
We have previously branded Cassie as part of Alice Dellal’s ever-growing troupe of doppelgängers, although at the 40th anniversary of the lunar landing sponsored by Louis Vuitton last night, she went from follower to trendsetter—or at least trend-modifier. Not content with a simple asymmetrical shave, the singer razored a design into the side of her head à la the popular early-nineties style. A good move, in our estimation, and one that seems necessary if only to separate herself from recent adapters of Dellal’s signature cut (we’re talking about you, Carmen Electra). Thoughts on the look?
Following her wig experiments last month, Lily Allen seems to be delving into challenging lip-color territory these days, sporting a muted purple shade at a performance in Somerset over the weekend. It’s a step in the right direction for fall, when soft grays are prime for a takeover. Thoughts on the lavender hue?
