Despite not nabbing an Oscar this time around, Amy Adams had quite the year—starring as a glamorous con artist (with a seventies wardrobe, hair, and makeup to match) in American Hustle and also wrapping production on Tim Burton’s highly anticipated drama Big Eyes. Massive movie success aside, Adams still claims to be a “practical girl” when it comes to beauty—she shops at Target for tools and isn’t above begging Eucerin to keep producing her favorite body wash. In this month’s Beauty Essentials feature, we reveal the redhead’s top picks and the priceless indulgence she can’t wait to stock up on now that awards season is finally over.
In the new issue of Allure, Amy Adams gets real about her outlook on beauty. “Perfect isn’t normal, nor is it interesting,” she says. “Some of these actresses or public personas who are very public about their disciplined diets, more power to them. I just don’t see the point.” Adams, the latest actress to assume the role of Lois Lane in the new Superman movie, Man of Steel, also gets candid about her reliance on makeup. “I have no features without makeup,” she admits. “I am pale. I have blonde lashes. You could just paint my face—it’s like a blank canvas. It can be great for what I do.” [Us]
To celebrate the launch of its new 777-300ER on the Los Angeles-to-London route, American Airlines has teamed up with the British brand Nails Inc. on a limited-edition lacquer. Called 2 Park, after the address of the airline’s frequent-flier program’s headquarters in New York, the dove-gray varnish will only be available at the nail salon in the Admirals Club at Heathrow Airport—while supplies last.

He might have lost out to Channing Tatum for the title of People‘s Sexiest Man Alive last year, but Bradley Cooper is having the last laugh. The Hangover star has just been voted “Best Hair,” according to a new poll conducted in the U.K. [The Sun]
It shouldn’t come as too big of a shock that Old Hollywood continues to inspire the red carpets of today; classic glamour, after all, never goes out of style. So we were unsurprised to see the screen-siren triple threat—think: red lips, side parts, and smooth waves—at not one but two star-studded functions last night. Amy Adams sported Votre Vu’s forthcoming French Kiss in Annette, a bright tomato-tinged crimson, to promote Man of Steel at the summer blockbuster’s New York premiere, while Chanel skincare face, Diane Kruger, went for a glossier true scarlet, like the brand’s Rouge Allure in Incandescent, at the Broadcast Television Journalists Association’s Critics’ Choice Television Awards in L.A. Bicoastal beauty at its best. Who do you think is working a better Veronica Lake?
The hits keep coming for Mariah Carey. Not the songs, per se; the singer hasn’t released an album since 2009 (although one is reportedly in the works). But the American Idol judge’s fragrance business is booming. Her twelfth scent, Dreams, launches next month.[Billboard]
Remember that meteorite that crashed into Russia’s Ural region last month? Rather than erect plaques or statues, local authorities are memorializing the event with a perfume. It will be called Chebarkul Meteorite, after the lake where pieces of the asteroid were recovered, and “will most likely feature metallic and stony notes.” No, we’re not making this up. [Allure]
Amy Adams isn’t just the face of Lacoste’s forthcoming scent, Eau de Lacoste. She also has a personal connection to the jasmine sambac and orange flower flacon. “Recently, I was in Ravello, Italy, and it was a perfect temperature and the wind was blowing and I could smell jasmine and orange blossom, and now, to this day, if I’m stressed out, I think of that moment, and it’s one of the things I use to try and relax myself,” says the Oscar-nominated actress.

“2013 is Amazon’s year of beauty.” The massive e-tailer has its eyes set on overhauling its approach to hawking makeup, fragrance, skincare and haircare—from mass and prestige markets. Look out. [WWD]
As we count down to the Golden Globes—a ceremony that, in all of its booze-fueled glory, kick-starts awards season—many have begun to formulate their own predictions for who will occupy the winner’s circle in both the acting and the just as highly contested style categories. Before we look forward, however, we thought it would be far more informative to peer back at a dozen of this year’s female nominees to decide which of their former Golden Globes cameos is the most memorable. And so, without further ado, allow us to present the Golden Globes Beauty Hall of Fame, which will be welcoming a new class this Sunday. Click here for a slideshow.
