Flashback Friday is a feature on Beauty Counter in which we pore over the pages of our favorite glossies from decades past in search of a little modern-day makeup and hair inspiration.
The Model: Alina
The Moment: Talonlike Tips
The Motivation: Just like fashion, manicure trends, too, are cyclical. And while nail art has finally started to make its descent from stardom, it seems that the slim, pointed shape of the sixties and seventies is back. From Rihanna’s crimson claws to Daria Werbowy’s latest Céline ads (where she sports bloodred tips), all signs point to a this extra-long—and almost lethal—length.
The Rattail Resurfaces; Shu Uemura Unveils The Eyelash Curler 2.0; Airbus Makes A Case For Personal Space; And More
Daria Werbowy has the ability to make anything look chic—even a rattail. She shows off her skinny, neck-grazing braid in the November issue of Marie Claire France. [Byrdie]
Shu Uemura’s beloved eyelash curler gets an update. The S Curler’s band is shorter, so you can add a precise curve to tiny, hard-to-reach lashes, and boasts a pad designed to be pressed against the eye for stability. [The Cut]
While waistlines and the number of travelers have increased in size since the 1950s, plane seats have not. According to research out of the London Sleep Centre (commissioned by Airbus), 18-inch chairs are conducive to better sleep at 35,000 feet (50 percent better than the standard 16- or 17-inch seats). Every inch counts, especially when you’re stuck in coach. [Daily Mail]
The verdict is still out on whether the bangs Camilla Belle debuted at A Quest for Beauty: The Art of Van Cleef & Arpels, an exhibit at the Bowers Museum in Santa Ana, California, are real or faux. Glamour.com says authentic, but that fringe is reminiscent of the choppy black wigs at Fendi, if you ask me.
Japonesque—a beauty brand known for its tools—is branching out into color cosmetics. Instead of testing the waters with a handful of products, the company is making a splash with over 280 SKUs and colorful compacts. [WWD]
It seems that the swoosh style (seen on supers like Daria Werbowy) is as popular on the pitch as it is on the runway. With the European soccer leagues recently taking to the field, more than one star athlete—from Cristiano Ronaldo to newly signed Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale—has been seen sporting the pushed-over look. When it comes to hair trends, even boys just wanna have fun.
Coco has a crop, Lady Gaga is wearing Queen Bey’s waves, and now Kelly Osbourne has a new set of fringe (which she debuted only a few hours ago on Instagram). We’re reminded of that moment in Legally Blonde, in which Elle’s friend Serena proudly proclaims, “I got bangs! My hair is so now!”
Oxygen has plans to launch a competition show, Nailed It!, in which contestants will go head-to-head (or rather, hand-to-hand) in an attempt to win the title of ultimate nail artist. We think a great challenge would be to re-create Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel ceiling using all ten tips as a canvas. Network execs, take note. [Variety]
Katy Perry owns the throne and sheds a powdered wig for her latest fragrance, Killer Queen. Check out the thirty-second video clip on The Cut.
We discussed the nose ring on Daria’s cover of Paris Vogue earlier this summer, but her wavy, windswept hair wasn’t too shabby either. Now actress Rebecca Hall is rocking the model’s look on the red carpet. [Byrdie]
Judging by all the Instagrams, Céline’s ad campaigns are just about as eagerly anticipated as its shows. Phoebe Philo stuck with what works for Fall, enlisting model Daria Werbowy and lensman Juergen Teller for the third season running. Last time around, the Canadian super sported a chic bob that launched a thousand imitations, and the latest series brought plenty of new beauty ideas to the table. In several of the images, Werbowy is working a deep brick red lip and matching talon-like tips that called to mind those mink-lined pumps with the built-in pedicures from Spring. Others feature Werbowy wearing a topknot tied with a big bow, a rather unexpected touch for such a minimalist collection. But unlikely or not, we predict it too might spark a trend. What do you think?
