Beyoncé released her surprise, self-titled “visual album” early this morning. In addition to appearances by Jay-Z, Blue Ivy, Drake, Frank Ocean, Chanel Iman, Jourdan Dunn, and Joan Smalls in the seventeen videos, a bevy of looks—including the twenty-four-hour pixie cut that set the social media world on fire, and vampire-style grill that debuted on Instagram—were put on display. (Bey’s recent spout of beauty ADD makes so much more sense now.) Here, we survey some of our favorites:
Either the people at Pantone have psychic abilities or they took cues from Queen Bey when naming Radiant Orchid as the color of the year.
Reminiscent of the hair at the Marc by Marc Jacobs Fall 2013 show, we have a feeling crimps are going to stage a serious comeback.
Two of this past season’s biggest trends in one frame: blue shadow and a loud mouth.
Bold bordeaux lips paired with a matching trench make for a dynamic duo.
From barely there makeup to head-to-toe black body paint, the looks in the video for “Ghost” run the gamut.
Smoky eyes, a berry-colored pout, and marcel waves? Talk about a triple threat.
Angular eyeliner reminiscent of the teal and cobalt slashes seen on Marc Jacobs’ Spring 2014 runway.
Who doesn’t love a good beauty flashback?
Comedy Central may have “roasted” James Franco last night in Culver City, but at the VMAs in Brooklyn, it was all about grills. Rihanna was decidedly understated this year—wearing cuffed jeans, an MC Lyte tee, a diamond-studded collar, and a tiny cross positioned between her two front teeth. And while this isn’t the first time that RiRi debuted some bedazzled dental work (wearing a much larger gold gun earlier in the month), this bite-sized version is something we can get on board with (especially when compared to Katy Perry’s over-the-top, rainbow, diamond-studded “ROAR” mouthpiece). With everyone from Madge to Queen Bey giving their pearly whites a serious gilt trip, we’re wondering if the mouth party will become as mainstream as the arm party? And an even bigger question, will Lara Stone or Georgia May Jagger fill their famous gaps with grills? Time (and teeth) shall tell.
Coco has a crop, Lady Gaga is wearing Queen Bey’s waves, and now Kelly Osbourne has a new set of fringe (which she debuted only a few hours ago on Instagram). We’re reminded of that moment in Legally Blonde, in which Elle’s friend Serena proudly proclaims, “I got bangs! My hair is so now!”
Oxygen has plans to launch a competition show, Nailed It!, in which contestants will go head-to-head (or rather, hand-to-hand) in an attempt to win the title of ultimate nail artist. We think a great challenge would be to re-create Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel ceiling using all ten tips as a canvas. Network execs, take note. [Variety]
Katy Perry owns the throne and sheds a powdered wig for her latest fragrance, Killer Queen. Check out the thirty-second video clip on The Cut.
We discussed the nose ring on Daria’s cover of Paris Vogue earlier this summer, but her wavy, windswept hair wasn’t too shabby either. Now actress Rebecca Hall is rocking the model’s look on the red carpet. [Byrdie]
News flash: We found Beyoncé’s blonde mermaid waves. She might have sheared them off in favor of the cropped cut that lasted about a millisecond in the fast-paced world of social media, and then magically reappeared with a slightly longer bob days later. But in case you were wondering where those long locks went, you can find them on none other than Lady Gaga, who was spotted wearing oddly similar-looking chest-grazing strands yesterday, outside her hotel in Soho. Bey, if you’re still on the hunt for your hair, consider the mystery solved. You’re welcome.
An American Movie Classic Gets a Fashion-Forward Update in Ukraine; Get in Line for One Direction’s Debut Fragrance (Along With Teens and Their Grandmas); and More
Elle Ukraine looked to the American film The Royal Tenenbaums for inspiration for its September issue. Model Milly Simmonds poses as a seductive Margot (the role played by Gwyneth Paltrow). One of our favorite photos shows Simmonds re-creating a scene from the movie in which Margot “secretly” lights up atop the bathroom sink, waiting for her toenail polish to dry. [FashionGoneRogue.com]
The waiting list for One Direction’s first fragrance, Our Moment, isn’t just for teenage groupies. Launching at Harrods.com on Friday and in store on Sunday, the range of ages that has already reserved a bottle spans from 16 to 68. [Vogue.Co.UK]
Marc Jacobs Beauty is a hot commodity, and at the offices of XOVain.com, the lust for his black lacquered palettes is so high that it caused the beauty editor’s cache of MJ cosmetics to be lifted. While we’re not surprised that the designer goods were swiped, we enjoyed the Clue-inspired still lifes that attempt to pinpoint the beauty burglar.
Keeping track of Beyoncé’s bob is beginning to feel like the never-ending coverage and scrutiny that surrounded Kate Middleton’s baby bump. The slightly wild, wavy hair that appeared in backstage photos on Mrs. Carter’s Tumblr tops our list as our favorite iteration of her short cut thus far.
