We discussed My Little Pony-like hair at length with several industry insiders for our Spring Beauty Guide, but as of late, another coloring concept is staging a significant comeback. While we’re hesitant to declare ombré “a thing” again, the vibrant iteration (in lieu of boring blond) recently made appearances at Coachella (Katy Perry and Chanel Iman) and two celeb-studded parties that took place on opposite coasts last night (Michelle Harper and blogger Elaine Daneshrad). If you’re not willing to go all the way with a root-to-tip transformation, consider a dramatic dip instead.
Between film premieres, parties, and celeb-studded events around the globe, this week was full of memorable hair and makeup looks (including Solange Knowles’ tangerine eyeliner and Lupita N’yongo’s graphic wing). Here, we recap five more of our favorite beauty moves.
Camilla Belle; Jimmy Choo’s Choo.08 Party; Beverly Hills, CA
When you’re wearing prim neutrals, add a loud mouth to keep things youthful. Belle opted for MAC’s nearly-neon Retro Matte lipstick in Flat Out Fabulous.
Chanel Iman; Spotify Brunch at the Soho Desert House; La Quinta, CA
You know we love a good dye job. Chanel Iman rocked the trend at Coachella with rainbow streaks of pink and teal.
Kate Bosworth; Alexander Wang x H&M Party; Indio, CA
Coachella veteran Kate Bosworth knows how to beat the heat in style. Laid-back waves and flushed cheeks (à la Stella McCartney FW14) looked effortless and fresh.
Jourdan Dunn; StyleCaster + UGG Coachella Party; Villa Sereno, CA
Blue eyeliner typically conjures up bad prom photos from the eighties. But Jourdan Dunn’s take—worn on the lower lash line with bare skin—looks as cool as her snow cone (and conjures up memories of Chanel’s most recent Resort show).
Emma Stone; The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Premiere; Berlin, Germany
This Amazing Spider-Man 2 star has been sporting some winning beauty looks as of late. Bouncy, flapper-inspired curls and a wash of pale blue eyeshadow played off her Chanel dress.
I was hoping this 2013 trend would be put to bed in the New Year, but gilded teeth are still going strong. Super Cara Delevingne sported a gold snarl created by Parisian grillz designer du jour, Dolly Cohen, for a shoot with Lurve magazine. Fans of the former dental technician’s work include the model’s pop star bestie, Rihanna, A$AP Rocky, and fellow catwalker Chanel Iman.
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?
The sea of Givenchy dresses aside, last night’s Met gala was as much about beauty as it was about fashion—which shouldn’t be that much of a surprise; after all, punk’s lasting legacy has done just as much for the advancement of black eyeliner and hair color as it has for studs and safety pins. Miley’s spikes, Madonna’s black bob, and Diane von Furstenberg’s epic curls come to mind as some of the evening’s biggest beauty moments, although there was plenty more to talk about—or text about, as it were; we were engaged in a steady stream of phone commentary with no less than three style-savvy friends at once as the chaos and couture unfolded on the red carpet. Below, we’ve listed a few of our favorite punk trends, reimagined for the red carpet—and in face-off form—because while the Met isn’t an awards show, per se, there’s nothing wrong with a little friendly competition.
The Look: Peroxide Goes Platinum
The Contenders: Anne Hathaway vs. Nicole Richie
Nicole Richie and her hairstylist, Luke Chamberlain, set out to make a color statement on the red carpet via Chamberlain’s silver-white, spray-in streaks, but the night’s mane event belonged to Anne Hathaway, who showed up to the Metropolitan Museum of Art with a brand-new, bright blonde dye job. “I decided to go for a look that [was] glam, edgy, and yet very youthful and fun,” celebrity hairstylist Sascha Breuer explained of the slicked up style she gave Hathaway’s crop, which was freshly bleached courtesy of Marie Robinson.
