It was confirmed this morning that Langley Fox Hemingway‘s recent shade change was a wig (landing her in the league of faux blonds, alongside Ruby Jean Wilson), but now we’re wondering if Ashleigh Good has really gone platinum? If so, the former brunette can join the ranks of Julia Nobis and Saskia de Brauw, as well as Miley Cyrus’ eyebrows. [Instagram]
“Someone recommended I wax. I do that. I shave as little as possible. I hate shaving. It’s so unnatural, your skin is yelling at you,” People‘s Sexiest Man Alive, Adam Levine, told the glossy. It appears he’s got the same grooming ritual as Jared Leto.

Cara Delevinge told Vogue U.K. that inner eyeliner is as good a man repeller as clogs or overalls. But the super won’t have anyone hating on her bitty braids: “And I liked to have cornrows as much as possible—which I don’t think was a beauty disaster because they looked fucking cool…” [The Cut]
Jay-Z isn’t the only rapper breaking into the fragrance category—Pitbull (a.k.a. Armando Christian Pérez) is launching two eponymous scents for both men and women come December 1 on Amazon.com. But don’t expect him to stop there. He’s planning to launch fashion, accessories, and beauty products. We look forward to lipsticks named after some of his greatest hits, like “Gasolina” and “Hotel Room Service.” [WWD]

Rihanna appears to have jumped on the bob bandwagon—joining recent short-hair converts like Jennifer Hudson, Jennifer Aniston, and Jennifer Lawrence. While we’ve seen the star sport sleek and asymmetrical versions in the past, her new cut is reminiscent of the choppy wigs spotted this season at Fendi. [Instagram]

“I’ve never seen someone travel with so much in my life,” model Naomi Campbell told WSJ. Magazine of Pat McGrath’s makeup cache. “And that says something, coming from me.” But the face painter made a case for not packing light: “When you walk into a room and there are racks and racks of beautiful clothes, do you really want to ruin it all with a bad lipstick?” she said. Point taken. [WSJ. Magazine]

L’Oréal Paris has certainly scooped up a lot of star power in the past few weeks (signing both Blake Lively and Lara Stone as spokeswomen for the brand). But according to recent reports, Adele won’t be belting out “Because you’re worth it” anytime soon. Not even for 12 million pounds. [Refinery29]
Two Jennifers have recently made the chop—but not out of desire for kicky new cuts. For Jennifer Aniston, it was a Brazilian blow-out gone terribly wrong that did her in, but Jennifer Lawrence has Catching Fire director Francis Lawrence to blame. Constant hair-dyeing, in the name of Katniss, left this tribute’s long strands fried and a pixie in their place. [New York]
