Minimally glamorous beauty accessorized what seemed to be a never-ending assortment of one-shouldered dresses at Sunday night’s rainy Golden Globes ceremony. Chloë Sevigny, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and Drew Barrymore fought the weather with sleek, pulled-back chignons, while Nicole Kidman and Sandra Bullock worked lower, looser side-parted adaptations of the same style. There were some updo dissenters as well, with Jennifer Aniston and Julia Roberts bucking the humidity and keeping their tresses long, beachy, and blond. But what really stood out for us among the bevy of false lashes, thinly lined black cat-eyes, and sculpted cheeks was the dominance (again!) of the red lip. Two-time nominee and one-time winner Meryl Streep chose a shiny, sheer hue; Cameron Diaz opted for an opaque gloss using Chanel’s Rouge Allure Laque in Dragon; Mad Men‘s Christina Hendricks paired Shu Uemura’s Rouge Unlimited #134 with a very pink cheek; and her co-star, January Jones, one-upped her much-discussed black headband by previewing Chanel’s new Rouge Coco Lip Colour in Paris, which launches in March. In the season’s first big red-carpet beauty battle, the award goes to…
“There are very few businesses that’ve been around this long,” Kiehl’s president Chris Salgardo said last night as he celebrated the apothecary’s 158 years in the beauty biz with new renovations to the flagship store and a host of celebrities in tow. “It’s been about three years in the making,” he said of the East Village mainstay’s refurbishing, which includes new fixtures, an updated layout, and the addition of a gifting station equipped with a collection of products exclusive to the store, like the limited edition lip balm cap (above), designed by New York Adorned. Toasting the company’s increased success worldwide and its continued dedication to the downtown community were Natasha Leone, Kim Kardashian, Amber Tamblyn, and Chloë Sevigny, the latter of whom will forever reign supreme over all that lies below 14th Street. “I’ve been using their products since ’93,” the actress surmised as she rattled off a list of her favorites, including the brand’s line-reducing serum, under-eye concentrate, lavender bubble bath, and Creme de Corps. When it comes to makeup, though, it’s all about Yves Saint Laurent, whose matte pink lipstick Sevigny broke out for the soirée. “It’s great because you don’t need a compact with it,” she said, pointing to the gold rectangular tube’s reflective surface. And then it dawned on us: a Kiehl’s color collection, by Chloë Sevigny. It’d be a great way to usher in the company’s 160th birthday, no?
While Chloë Sevigny is known to fashion followers for her willingness to take style risks (and more often than not pull them off), on the beauty front she tends to play it safe with a few mainstays that work every time. Behold the matte orange-red lip and mascara on both upper and lower lash lines, which she debuted in Miami a couple months back and wore again to the premiere of the third season of HBO’s Big Love in L.A. last night—a classic case of if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Are you a fan?
When the famed Fontainebleau hotel reopened in Miami Beach this weekend, a bevy of stars flew south to toast the updated renovations on the Rat Pack mainstay—including perennial downtown stylemaker Chloë Sevigny. Sporting a matte orange lip and some seriously defined lashes, she seemed to be channeling the early sixties, rather than the fifties of Sammy Davis and Sinatra’s fame. No matter though; if anyone can straddle eras (and manage to wear mascara on their lower lash line, sans smudging), she can.
