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.
A woman has a right to change her mind and her hair…especially when her name is Beyoncé. Less than ten days after debuting her pixie on Instagram, she stepped out with Blue Ivy sporting a longer blonde bob (courtesy of extensions). Perhaps it was Coco Rocha’s live tweets regarding her own chop that pushed her over the edge, or maybe it was the virtual media firestorm surrounding what’s on her own head that did her in? All we know is that we’re missing Mrs. Carter’s gamine crop already. What about you?
Fashion’s wonder boy J.W. Anderson debuted his first advertising campaign, snapped by photog Jamie Hawkesworth. The clothes are certainly worth talking about, but we’re currently crushing on model Lucan Gillespie’s extra-high and wavy pony. (And is that a black scrunchie we spy?) [Vogue.com U.K.]
Blond bombshell Kate Upton revealed to Elle.com that her favorite body part is, wait for it…her eyes. “I have yellow in them, and yellow is my favorite color,” she says. As for the feature she isn’t so fond of: her “baby hands.” We have a feeling that with assets like Upton’s, no one’s checking out her manicure.
While there’s no shortage of rebellious teenagers, Esme Edwards, daughter of makeup artist and Stila founder Jeanine Lobell, is taking a legitimate stand against the sexual beauty standard perpetuated by the press and pop stars. The Cut reported that she rejects the “sex-kitten” vibe, but that isn’t to say she doesn’t have the talent (and creative genes) to pull off the look. Check out the teen’s makeup tutorial and her unrivaled feminist spirit.
According to PeopleStyleWatch.com, nobody was more shocked by Beyoncé’s pixie crop Instagram pics than her go-to hairstylist, Kim Kimble, who had a retro-fifties look planned for a weekend video shoot with her star client. (Guess it’s back to the drawing board.) And for all the naysayers who said she just took out her weave or extensions, Kimble dispelled the rumor by noting that Mrs. Carter has naturally long, thick hair. As if we needed another reason to be jealous of Queen Bey.
If you’re headed to Venezuela and aren’t in need of a haircut, might we suggest getting security for your strands. CNN reports that in the coastal city of Maracaibo, thieves nicknamed piranhas are attacking women for their long hair, which they later sell to salons.
Beyoncé reported, via Instagram, that she pedaled her way to the Barclays Center in Brooklyn for the final concert of the Mrs. Carter Show World Tour before she takes off for the U.K. But her earth-friendly form of transportation wasn’t the only surprise she had planned: She uploaded three pics of her newly sheared, blonde pixie to her feed late last night and set the Twitterverse abuzz. (I like to think of Queen Bey breaking out the scissors as the beauty equivalent of the big reveal of Prince George Alexander Louis.) While she won’t be whipping her signature mermaid waves anytime soon, I’m sure she’ll find a way to rock this short and chic cut onstage. And I can’t help but wonder if Beyoncé’s inspiration was Rihanna’s curly crop, which she sported earlier in the week, or if it was just an unfortunate case of bike-helmet hair that fueled this chop viewed round the world.
