Cara Delevingne’s latest Instagram video promoting YSL beauty products “starts with the lips” and ends with a make-out sesh. The lucky person on the other end of her pout, however, is not Michelle Rodriguez (at least not at the moment) but the super’s own reflection. What can we say, this ad takes narcissism to an entirely new level.
“If [you] have nice eyebrows [you] literally have everything [you] need in life,” is a quote Cara Delevingne recently re-grammed. And to a certain degree it’s true. The super’s statement arches (aside from her off-the-runway antics and romps with Michelle Rodriguez) have caused her stock to rise…and tweezer sales to plummet. But the Brit beauty might have some steep competition in newbie Taylor Hill, who appears in H&M’s Divided campaign, shot by Hasse Nielsen. The hair above this model’s eyes is slightly wilder than Delevingne’s bushy-but-groomed set, and I hope that this runway rookie doesn’t allow an overeager makeup artist to “clean up” any strays (a phrase that often leads to an over-plucked disaster). Taylor, if you learn anything from Cara, it’s to guard those golden arches—and subsequent gold mines—with your life.
Announced via Instagram, Burberry tapped not one, but two supers for its latest fragrance campaign: nineties icon Kate Moss and icon-in-training Cara Delevingne. Although Moss’ brows are more waifish than big and bushy, the catwalkers share multiple similarities: both Brits, both beloved by designers (like Marc Jacobs, who cast the duo in Louis Vuitton’s Fall 2013 show), and both earning the title of wild child for their off-runway (and often-caught-on-camera) antics. Karl Lagerfeld recently told The Sunday Times, “Girls admire [Cara Delevingne] like they used to Kate Moss. They all want to be as free as her.” Well, at least those of us who live more by the book can smell as nonconformist and naughty as this trenchcoat-clad pair come autumn, when the eau (and Mario Testino-lensed campaign) is scheduled to be unveiled.
Tattoos have quickly become more commonplace backstage—models are not the blank canvases of seasons past. Yesterday at Prada, I saw a makeup artist hard at work with a concealer palette in hand, doing her best to camouflage a feather inked on a model’s neck. And of course, Cara Delevingne’s many tats made an appearance at Fendi (albeit all were covered up, either by white gloves or a face-framing fur hat). One spot I haven’t seen get much attention, however, are the cuticles. Sure, Delevingne has a lion permanently drawn onto her forefinger, but the area surrounding her nail still remains pristine. Leave it to London-based Ciaté—the company that brought velvet, caviar, and chalkboard manicures to the masses—to change all that with its latest launch: Cuticle Tattoos. These temporary transfers featuring bows, blooms, stars, and diamonds are designed to be positioned on the skin just outside the nail bed. It seems beauty brands have moved beyond nail art and are seeking (slightly) higher ground.
