Zendaya Coleman Reveals the Secret to Pulling Off Pigtails


zendaya-colemanPigtails are staging a comeback for the over-10 set: Guido Palau doubled up on braids for Marc by Marc Jacobs Fall ’14 collection, Chloë Sevigny arrived at the Met ball with two inverted twists in tow, and Hanneli Mustaparta wore fluffy ponies front-row at Dior Resort. Reminiscent of MBMJ’s fierce manga-meets-ninja models, Zendaya Coleman hit the BET Awards last night sporting superlong, tight plaits with a black cap, oversize hoops, a bomber jacket, and tiny bralette. Coleman proves that the key to pulling off bad-girl braids is to wear an equally edgy outfit; with a flirty dress or gown, it would have been all wrong. You can also take beauty cues from the new MBMJ ad campaign and add some unexpected color (and shock value) to a milkmaid iteration.

The Two-Second Summer Beauty Move You Should Try



While spring was all about a Lorde-like lip—from the singer’s purply-black MAC bullet to subtler wine shades on the red carpet—we’re happy to report that girly pink pouts are still making a statement. At last night’s annual Coach party on the High Line, Chloë Grace Moretz and Chloë Sevigny proved just how fresh and flattering the hue can be. Moretz chose a pearly pastel shade (similar to Ilia’s Hold Me Now), while Sevigny perked up her houndstooth frock with an opaque Pepto. If you want to pack even more of a punch à la Keri Russell (below), we suggest Hourglass Femme Rouge Velvet Crème Lipstick in Fever. Pull off the look with a few swipes of mascara, dewy skin, and messy hair. Consider your summer beauty routine perfected—in one minute or less.

Double Dutch: How to Wear Pigtails Like a Grown-Up



Women who wear pigtails past the age of six never appealed to us—that is, until we saw these looks above. For her Williamsburg performance on Sunday, Iggy Azalea added a little edge to her blow-out with a waterfall braid down either side of her center part. At Monday’s Met Gala, Chloë Sevigny opted for a pair of punky, inverted rope braids down the back of her head to offset her floral Kenzo dress (not to mention that ultra-glam custom Tatcha red lip). And at last night’s Dior Resort ’15 show, Hanneli Mustaparta divided her chestnut strands down the middle and formed two fluffy ponies, the perfect complement to her sexy mesh top. One pigtail trend to avoid? Two mini buns on the top of your head, a foam finger, a giant twerking bear…we think you get the idea.

Chloë Sevigny’s Lips of a Geisha



“Chloë’s signature has always been a red, but we wanted something a bit brighter for the season, so we added more orange into the mix,” face painter Daniel Martin explained of the bespoke poppy-crimson blend created for Chloë Sevigny to wear to the Met Gala. While this hue has long been considered a beauty classic, it’s the first bullet for Japanese skincare line Tatcha. “We started by studying the original ‘geisha red’ together, which is a particular shade of vermillion made from Japanese safflower,” explained the brand’s founder, Vicky Tsai. “Then, under Daniel’s direction, we evolved it and made a dozen variations for the last four months to get the right shade, texture, and finish.” Only two fiery tubes were created (at least for now)—one for Sevigny, who arrived on the red carpet in custom Kenzo, and one for her date, Opening Ceremony cofounder Carol Lim. There isn’t a hard-and-set date for the release of this custom cosmetic, but if it’s anything like the Tatcha gold-leaf lip balm or Camellia Cleansing Oil, it’s bound to make it into our highly selective rotation of reds.

12 Gorgeous Ways to Rock Glasses Tonight



“Men aren’t attentive to girls who wear glasses,” claimed nearsighted knockout Pola Debevoise (played by Marilyn Monroe) in the 1953 classic How to Marry a Millionaire. But the conclusion of the movie—and multiple celebs sporting frames on the red carpet—proves otherwise. Male opinions aside, specs are having a serious style moment. Everyone from Lupita Nyong’o at the MTV Movie Awards to models this past season at Rodarte illustrate that wearing frames after dark is a beauty move worth trying. As chic as Jennifer Lawrence makes stumbling up the stairs look, seeing clearly and walking with confidence is always on trend. Here, a roundup of our favorite girls in glasses: Click to view the slideshow.
