After 2009 produced a slew of side-shave posterchildren following Alice Dellal’s rise to fame, the razor loving eventually came to a halt. Short of the impromptu shear Christiaan gave Milla Jovovich on the set of a Love magazine shoot back in March, the style hasn’t seen many new adapters. But two of its die-hard fans—Dellal and Cassie—are still paying homage to the asymmetrical cut. Cassie was spotted freshly Bic’d in Cannes today, while Dellal did her signature short-on-one-side, long-blonde-and-wavy-on-the-other look proud at the Chanel Cruise show in Versailles earlier this week. And so, we ask you: As both women stay the side-shave course, who wears it better?
Sometimes it seems Rihanna changes her hair as often as she changes her socks. After recent stints as a blonde and a fire engine redhead, the singer is back to a dark brunette, and she added a bit of edge to the look à la Alice Dellal with a punky shaved undercut, which she revealed this weekend via Twitter. And fans already know Rihanna’s next impending hair transformation. She claims to be looking for the perfect shade of navy blue. [StyleNews]
Money doesn’t buy everything, at least when it comes to cosmetics. Avon rejected a $10 billion takeover bid from Coty Inc. on Friday, and today the company’s shares rose 19.7 percent. [WWD]
Arizona Muse became an overnight modeling sensation a mere 18 months ago. The newly named Estée Lauder spokeswoman told the Telegraph that thanks to the calorie-torching benefits of breastfeeding, she thinks she looks better after having Nikko, her 3-year-old son, who frequently appears alongside her in editorials and ads for labels like J.Crew.

After spending hour upon hour getting hair and makeup done, models know a few tricks of the trade. Daphne Groeneveld won’t leave home without curling her eyelashes, for example, while Frida Gustavsson rims her inner eyes with beige liner to prevent looking tired.

Just in time to capitalize on fall’s androgyny trend, ck one—Calvin Klein’s gender-bending hit scent—has been reimagined yet again. ck one shock, which hits shelves on September 1, diverges from its predecessors, however, setting up a battle of the sexes through two distinct fragrances, one for him and one for her, rather than a single unisex offering; consider them perfect for when you don’t feel like sharing. To properly illustrate the rock ‘n’ roll, devil-may-care attitude the eaux are meant to evoke, Klein’s marketing team has assembled a ragtag crew including burgeoning It girl and red lip-loving Sky Ferreira; Alice Dellal, whose loyalty to the side-shave even after the style was co-opted by the mainstream is nothing if not impressive; house muse Lara Stone; and Ruby Aldridge, who has her own bit of rock cred (sister Lily is married to Kings of Leon front man Caleb Followill). The ad is ripe with classic Calvin raunch—underwear as outerwear, on-camera makeout scenes, etc., but the behind-the-scenes shots (premiering right here, right now) get to the heart of the fragrance, which at the end of the day is about a couple of crazy kids, having a good time.
The half-shave, Alice Dellal’s oft-copied take on the popular punk/eighties style, has been making fewer appearances in paparazzi photos recently (it’s all about gray hair these days). But it’s still fair game for editorial purposes, it seems, with an inspiring tribute popping up in this month’s Interview magazine. Iselin Steiro stars in this spread, which uses a hair and makeup evolution to show how the short-on-the-sides/long-on-the-top coif can go from soft and pretty to hard and sexy with a little help from industrial-strength sculpting gel, some serious blush, a strong black cat-eye, and a smear of black lipstick. Admit it: You’re kind of shocked by its versatility, right?
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?
