Eyebrow transplants surged this year, tweezer sales plummeted, and brow pencils and powders picked up steam. But after all the fuss about bulked up brows, is the Cara Delevingne-fueled craze finally taking a backseat to bleach? Rita Ora posted an arch-less photo to Instagram today, and Katy Perry pulled a similar move last week. While it’s a common occurrence backstage (both Alexander Wang and Marc Jacobs sent brow-less beauties down their Fall 2014 runways), we’re hoping this is one trend that doesn’t take off. One of the things that set Ora apart from the legions of platinum converts out there were her perfectly articulated arches. In an earlier interview with Style.com, she said, “I trim my brows a lot because I’m Albanian and I’m pretty hairy.” Unless you’re Andy Warhol, who famously stated, “I had a lot of dates, but I decided to stay home and dye my eyebrows,” when it comes to the hair above your eyes, the bolder, the better.
Nobody loves a theme party quite like the fashion set, which is why tastemakers and Oscar Award-winning actresses alike turned out in full force for Giancarlo Giammetti’s recent Pop Art party at his London home, which was shot by Vanity Fair. We were particularly impressed with Anne Hathaway’s and Margherita Missoni’s interpretations of the Warholian movement, which included some very inventive face-painting skills. Who do you think interpreted the silk-screened effect better?
In addition to its path of destruction that has crippled the livelihood of many people in New York and New Jersey, Superstorm Sandy also reportedly sent a number of electricity-less folks into stress-eating survival mode, which resulted in a collective weight gain that the New York Times has coined “the Sandy five.” [NYT]

Jennifer Lawrence’s star may be on the rise, but don’t expect her to follow the familiar path of Hollywood fame to a shockingly thin frame. “In Hollywood, I’m obese. I’m considered a fat actress!” The Hunger Games star jokes. Still, she has no intention of crash-dieting. “That’s something that I was really conscious of during training. I was trying to get my body to look fit and strong, not thin and underfed.” [Daily Mail]
The latest fashion-nail collab has arrived in the form a meeting of the minds between Essie and BaubleBar, which has yielded six sets of bangles that will each be sold with a corresponding shade of lacquer. [Racked]
After an insane amount of hype that started in August when NARS’ unprecedented collaboration with the Andy Warhol Foundation was first announced, the color collection is finally starting to hit stores. And there’s a lot worth looking at, primarily because this is not your average meeting of the minds. Instead of simply producing a range in homage, François Nars’ fan-favorite makeup brand actually worked with Warhol’s longstanding foundation, which protects the pop artist’s wealth of creative property, so that all of the images, quotes, and general visuals used are actual replicas of Warhol’s original work. That said, we imagine most people will be drawn immediately to the Flowers Eyeshadow Palettes that feature the artist’s famous Flowers, 1965 painting in three different shades of embossed pigment as well as Warhol’s indelible words “all is pretty,” which are scrawled onto the mirror; the trio of additional shadows depicting Warhol’s Self-Portrait in three contrasting shades will also presumably be big winners when they launch in November. But we’re putting our money on the Edie Gift Set. In an interesting turn of events, Marc Jacobs’ Spring collection, for which Nars serves face-painting duty, was directly inspired by Warhol’s poor little rich girl. “Everything is a coincidence,” Nars joked backstage of the circumstances that saw him wrapping his work with the Warhol Foundation only to segue into the beauty look for Jacobs’ show. Needless to say, he was well equipped to create a “more updated” take on Sedgewick’s heavily rimmed lids, lots of lashes, and big, bold brows with a clean, flushed complexion and a more pared-down black liner application. Those tools are now readily at your disposal via Nars’ holiday kit, which packs his Pure Matte Lipstick in Film Star, a sixties-era nude pink; Eyeshadow in Edie, a creamy neutral pigment with a hint of shimmer; Blush Duo in Deep Throat/Amour, which has both sheer peach and matte peach-pink options; and the essential Eyeliner Stylo in Carpates, a true black. Remember to mind the “banane” line.

Remember last week when the blogosphere was abuzz with news that Jennifer Aniston reportedly spent upward of $8,000 a month on her beauty regimen? Lies, according to Aniston. The former Friends star says her pared-down routine has been the same since she was a teenager and that these claims are “greatly exaggerated.” [People]
According to Hunger Games hair department head Linda Flowers, over 500 wigs were used in the blockbuster movie event, but it was Effie’s coiffure that required the most work. “Her hair definitely took the most time,” Flowers says of the character played by Elizabeth Banks. “From start to finish it was about 45 minutes. She’s one of those people who’s so completely and purposefully put together that her wig would be an accessory just like a purse or a pair of shoes. So she has three wigs in the movie, and we’re going to have more for her in the next movie.” [MTV]
