At last night’s Chanel Fine Jewelry Fête d’Hiver benefit in New York, black and navy were the evening’s big colors, with similarly dark shades of eyeliner also getting a lot of play. If you can focus your attention beyond the ginormous diamond-encrusted camellia around Blake Lively’s neck, how do you like the liner on the inner rims of her eyes with mascara on both the top and bottom lash lines? Do you prefer Diane Kruger’s full brow and softer top-lid-only liner with mauve-y shadow pulled underneath the lower lashes for a touch of subtle smoke? Let us know below.
The Glam Squad: Celebrity makeup artist Kristofer Buckle for Dior Beauty and hairstylist Renato Campora for Frédéric Fekkai.
The Face: Buckle relied on a lot of warm honey colors to make Lively’s green eyes “pop,” including DiorBronze Original Tan in Amber Tan #03, Dior Serum de Rouge Lipstick as a base with Dior Addict Lip Polish in Radiance Expert on top, and Dior 5-Colour Eyeshadow in Beige Messai #705. To get that ethereal, otherworldly glow on her cheekbones and shoulders, Buckle actually used Dior Eye Show in Undressed Beige. “It’s technically an eye shadow,” he says, “but it works basically anywhere you want to reflect the light!” Noted.
The Hair: Going for a “goddess-style updo” inspired by Lively’s red Versace gown, Campora prepped her hair with Fekkai Coiff Strong Hold Volume Mousse, then blew it dry, adding a touch of styling gel to keep it smooth. Then he teased all the hair and pulled it up into a high ponytail, added some extensions for drama, and braided the entire length for maximum over-the-shoulder-swinging-and-posing potential.
The Result: A capital W in the Lively vs. Meester Emmy showdown.
Attention Upper East Siders—especially Blake Lively and Leighton Meester: There’s a new Queen B in town. That would be Jessica Szohr, a.k.a. Gossip Girl‘s Vanessa, and her set of ultra outrageous (and natural looking!) hair extensions. Spotted last night at both the Juicy Couture flagship store opening on Fifth Avenue and Lucky magazine’s 5th annual “Lucky Shops” event, the CW star pretty much surpassed her co-stars in otherworldliness, with a zigzag part and what was likely a 1″ curling iron. We’re assuming that you’re all in agreement with our OMFG sentiments, although there’s always room for dissenting opinions. Still a Serena fan? A backer of Blair? A proponent of a shorter-haired Vanessa? Divulge. xoxo.

If you happened to be walking down Fifth Avenue last night, you may’ve noticed more than a few faces pressed against the window at Henri Bendel, not to mention a slew of flashbulbs, screaming young girls, and equally excited grown men spilling onto the street. It was the kind of frenzy that only a collaboration between YSL Beauté and Gossip Girl could incite, bringing beauty fiends and the CW show’s legion of fans together for one promotional evening in celebration of the French luxury brand’s new Rouge Volupté lip color—and of course the private school drama’s much anticipated season premiere on September 1st. In attendance for the celebration were GG‘s Leighton Meester, Taylor Momsen, and Jessica Szhor, not to mention Anna Sui, who was presumably on hand to view her clothes in the store’s new Gossip Girl-inspired windows conceptualized by the show’s costume designer Eric Daman. Or maybe it was in the hopes of seeing Blake Lively, who was a no-show, sadly. A few YSL training executives were also roaming the floor, expounding on the company’s new collection of highly pigmented “cult colors” that actually possess the dual-acting quality of a lipstick and a gloss, touting a hyaluronic acid microsphere formulation that smooths and plumps lips—while providing the kind of long-lasting shine conducive to the laborious hours of scheming and backstabbing that are sure to dominate the show’s second season.
