Kiehl’s is a gateway drug. We’ve been a devotee of the 159-year-old brand since before we could say “cucumber toner”; it’s what turned us on to the business of beauty. And apparently we’re in good company. “I’ve been a fan since I was a little girl,” a jean jacket and Imitation of Christ-clad Chloë Sevigny reminisced last night at the Kiehl’s shop on L.A.’s Montana Avenue. “The Silk Groom was my favorite. In the nineties, every hairdresser had it on every shoot. Now, I have a strong memory every time I smell it.”
Sevigny and Dexter‘s Michael C. Hall—a loyal Blue Astringent user—were on hand to fête the launch of Kiehl’s latest designer label series. The initiative, which has boasted participants like Jeff Koons, Julianne Moore, and Pharell Williams in the past, pairs notables with graphic designers to create packaging for limited-edition products, the proceeds of which are donated to charity. In celebration of Earth Day on April 22, Sevigny and Hall have each given Kiehl’s Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Masque a facelift, and the money raised will go to Waterkeeper Alliance, a nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving clean and sustainable sources of H20. Fittingly, both actors were inspired by early years spent on the beach: Sevigny recalled picking up garbage with her mother near her childhood home on the Long Island Sound, while Hall conjured memories of excursions on the Neuse River as a kid in North Carolina. But it’s what’s on the inside that counts. “I put the masque on before I came here and I definitely think my skin feels better,” Hall smiled.
Among the celebrities heralding 2010′s “go short” trend was Chloë Sevigny, who sheared off her flaxen locks last February in favor of a blunt-cut, asymmetrical bob. Other A-listers may be letting their lobs grow out, but Sevigny is sticking with the crop, splashing around in Miami Beach over New Year’s with a newly trimmed, uniform-length version of the same style. Last night, her dedication to keeping things chin-grazing was reinforced when she showed up at the season five premiere of HBO’s Big Love with a few more inches missing. Even better was the star’s middle part and curls, a bit of a 1920′s homage that Sevigny made modern with a slashing of her signature orange-red lipstick and look 20 off the Rodarte Spring runway. What do you think of her latest scissor-happy move?
Extreme heat and hair have long had a troubled relationship. And this summer’s brutal temperatures have proved to be a challenge to even the most agreeable tresses. So, why fight nature’s course—particularly when there are a plethora of enticing, upwardly mobile summer styles to test- drive? Here, our favorite runway and red-carpet updos for defying the elements with some expert tips from hair gurus Fabio Scalia, Alan Tosler, and Sean Davis to help you DIY at home—and just in time, too; you’re looking at 95 degrees and thunderstorms this weekend, New York.
If there were an event that felt like an opportunity to do something beauty-wise that had a bit more attitude, it would be the New York premiere of The Runaways. And last night, Kristen Stewart and Chloë Sevigny both heeded the call. Stewart’s hair was swept up and across with a face-framing side swoosh that felt a bit New Wave, a bit rockabilly; her lips were painted a hot pink. And Sevigny’s heavily gelled-back hair and bright red pout looked like an homage, albeit a slightly restrained one, to the Robert Palmer girls. Do you think they hit a beauty high note?
Chloë Sevigny, Golden Globe winner and one-time queen of the downtown scenesters, has parted ways with her long languid waves—and we like it. The new blunt angled bob she sported at the 23rd Annual Second Stage Theatre All-Star Bowling Classic at Lucky Strike last night might preclude the Big Love star from dabbling in the awards show updos she seems to be a fan of, but the shorter style works very well with her face shape and L.A.-by-way-of-the-Lower East Side vibe. Are you a fan?
