Elizabeth Taylor, who passed away today at 79, will always be remembered by the beauty world for her violet eyes, that genetic blessing of two rows of eyelashes instead of one, and, of course, as the grande dame of celebrity fragrances. Her perfume, Passion, predates J. Lo Glow by 15 years, and its follow up, White Diamonds, remains the most successful celebrity fragrance of all time. [WWD]
Speaking of stylish women who continue to inspire us well past middle age, Nowness has set out to feature a gaggle of them in a new video short that proves you’re never too old for red lipstick, sculpted brows, graphic fringe, and custom-made orange eyelashes, as is the case with artist Ilona Royce Smithkin. “I have my own ideas of what I like and what I think is chic,” the 91-year-old declares.

Abbie Cornish has a metal-based hair extension to thank for minimizing what could have been a brutal head injury she sustained while filming a stunt on the set of her new flick, Sucker Punch. “Apparently the metal hair clip did really save my life and all I have now is a little scar that didn’t need stitches,” the Aussie screen star told late-night host Jimmy Kimmel last night. Extensions: Life savers for deflecting blows to the head and blows to the ego from a bad haircut. [Monsters &Critics]
Ever wonder what beauty products Jennifer Aniston swears by—other than her eponymous eau de parfum, that is? The answers are Bobbi Brown Cheek Tint, Chanel Lip Gloss, Dr. Hauschka Rose Day Cream, and L’Oréal Hair Serum. Now you know. [Grazia]
It seems like just the other day that we were discussing Abbie Cornish’s blond breakup bob, calling the sleek, angled ‘do “fantastic” and effective. In fact, it was way back in March, and the actress has since moved on. At Activision’s Kick-Off Party for E3 last night in L.A., Cornish sported dark chestnut locks and chest-grazing extensions—a total departure from the chic, flaxen crop she had only three months ago. What do you think: better off brunette, long, and layered, or a total beauty misstep?
The Makeup Artist: Jeanine Lobell for Chanel Beauty.
The Face: Lobell used a minimal base, choosing to focus her energies on Cornish’s cheeks. A concentrated dose of Chanel Rose Dust Powder Blush really showcases the way Cornish’s apples light up when she smiles.
The Eyes: To bring out her green peepers, Lobell went with a purple liner, Chanel’s Eye Definer pen in Violet Smoke, brushing a few coats of its Soft Touch Eye Shadow in Magic Night—a deep brownish plum—across her lids. Multiple slashings of Chanel’s Inimitable Mascara in Noir, on both the upper and lower lash line, helped make Cornish’s eyes “pop.”
The Lip: Peter Philips’ much-discussed new Rouge Coco Lipstick line made yet another red-carpet showing here, as Lobell reached for its Organdi Rose shade, a shimmering pink that added a little oomph to Cornish’s natural lip color.
The Result: Selma Blair, Kristen Bell, and Zoë Kravitz were also there, but all eyes were on Cornish. With rumors swirling that she has moved on from Ryan Phillippe to Josh Hartnett, inquiring minds want to know, well, everything.
As the “he said, she said” battle between new exes Ryan Phillippe and actress Abbie Cornish rages on, Cornish has decided to cut Phillippe right out of her life—with a fantastic new bob, which she debuted at Kimberly Brooks’ The Stylist Project exhibition in L.A. last night. The sleek, angled crop looks great with her face shape and really sends an “I’m better off without you anyway” message, no mud-slinging necessary. Thoughts on the style?
