Hair accessories of almost every ilk imaginable graced the Spring runways, as scarves, hats, pearl baubles, headbands, barrettes, bows, and even scrunchies made their way into show notes from Marc by Marc Jacobs and Ashish to Pucci, Fendi, Louis Vuitton, and Balenciaga. The one headdress that seems to have been forgotten last season? The turban. But not to worry; the chic wrap that was born in ancient societies (and then immortalized by Kate Moss at the Met gala in 2009) is having a moment now. Daria Werbowy watchers will recall when the supe’s latest round of Céline ads came out earlier this month featuring the Canadian-born beauty in a knotted headband-turban hybrid, and today, on the Copenhagen catwalk at Jesper Hovring, a white satin iteration crept up that was offset by a deep wine-stained mouth. Wear them with an updo, or with a sleek blow-out, à la Missoni Resort, and add them to your accessories arsenal stat.
Lady Gaga isn’t the only one upping the ante with a new fragrance campaign. Beyoncé has just unleashed her new Midnight Heat ad onto the Internet. Sure, it’s not little micro-men climbing allover her naked body, but, like, it’s still Beyoncé. [Fashion Etc]
Tom Bachik became the most talked about nail artist in the biz for a brief moment two summers ago when he was named Chanel’s first-ever celebrity manicurist, but now it appears that he has changed teams. The self-branded “MAN-icurist” recently signed on as the latest addition to L’Oréal Paris’ growing roster of experts. Will he still use Chanel’s inimitable lacquers when on set with his laundry list of A-list clients? Presumably yes. [WWD]
Daria Werbowy has shorn off her long chocolate locks in favor of a chin-grazing crop, courtesy of Christiaan. She originally made the cut a few months ago, according to the famed hairdresser who admits that the super-duper model “took a while to own it.” But he trimmed it up on the set of the Celine’s Fall campaign and left it short, mostly because “no one dared to put [Daria] in extensions.” [Into The Gloss]
What exactly does a video game smell like? We’re about to find out thanks to the perfume geniuses at Epic-Scents who are developing a range of fragrances that evoke the characteristics of gamer heroes like Mega Man. Full disclosure: we’re intrigued to see what they come up with for Mario. [Escapist]
Lancôme’s latest must-have mascara launches in September but starting today, Sephora is offering a 72-hour preview of its Hypnôse Star, inspired by brand face Daria Werbowy…and Betty Boop. [Sephora]
MAC has become synonymous with behemoth collaborations. From Hello, Kitty and Wonder Woman to partnerships with Beth Ditto, Daphne Guinnes, and Ruffian, there’s nothing the makeup brand can’t turn into covetable, limited-edition cosmetics. Its latest trick? Archie. The comic strip’s Betty and Veronica characters will get their own color ranges early next year. [WWD]
Never mind that successful Olympics bid. Americans have a whole new reason to be envious of London: At the end of this month, its Covent Garden neighborhood will be home to a two-floor Chanel makeup and fragrance pop-up shop. Jeal-lous. [Evening Standard]
When Taylor Swift first blew out her signature ringlets, the blogosphere was all a-gasp. But seeing the country phenom with straight hair is now something of a regular occurrence. “I decide based on what I’m doing on any given day,” Swift says of whether or not to go curly. “Lately, I’ve been doing my hair in a way that’s sort of a combination of the two, smooth on top with a loose curl at the bottom,” she explains, pointing out that her go-to hairstyle at the moment is “a ponytail with some kind of headband or scarf.” [Refinery 29]
Spotted: Natalie Portman at the Jardins du Palais Royal in Paris, where the Oscar-winning actress was reportedly shooting a new ad campaign for Miss Dior Cherie, which included a gigantic headdress made from real roses. Color us excited to see that one. [Catwalk Queen]
What do you get when you cover Daria Werbowy in bronzing fluid and experiment with a range of sparkly lipsticks and shimmering eye shadows? If you’re makeup artist Aaron De Mey, you get pure editorial perfection, as evidenced by his latest spread for Paris Vogue. The Lancôme artistic director of makeup has a way with metallics: Take his L’Ombre Magnétique, an opaque reflective pigment with an easy-to-wear cream shadow finish that made its runway debut at Victoria Beckham’s presentation in February and will be a large part of De Mey’s Fall collection. The makeup artist really went for it here with a shiny emerald motif, carving out Werbowy’s lids with a smoky green that doesn’t so much smolder as glow on the page. His tools? The aforementioned L’Ombre Magnétique in Urban Silver, layered with Lancôme’s Pop N’ Palette in Petrol and Le Khôl Gloss in Pop Petrol—both of which are, sadly, European exclusives. Knowing that we’ll probably never be able to pull off this look quite as well as Daria somehow makes the whole you-can’t-get-these-products-in-the-States pill a bit easier to swallow. For now, we’re content just to stare at this Elizabeth Taylor-inspired photo and those deep-set doe eyes.
The editors at i-D magazine essentially dedicated January’s “Beautiful Issue” to cover girl Eniko Mihalik, the Hungarian model and Gucci campaign star whose otherworldly cheeks and generally perfect, Daria Werbowy-like visage are garnering her It girl status. An It team was thus assembled to prep and photograph her for the shoot, including Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin behind the lens, Oribe on hair, and one Peter Philips on makeup duty. Occasionally taking off his creative director of Chanel makeup hat for the right editorial engagement, Philips applied a precise coat of what we’re assuming is one of Chanel’s new goth-inspired Rouge Allure lip colors due out in February (Hysteria is a phenomenal shade of black with a hint of violet) to Mihalik’s doll-like pout while utilizing actual jewels, rather than jewel tones, to make her lower lashes, er, stand out. A strange accessory to be sure, although one that could potentially have a shot at retail success. (Chanel devotees are generally cut from an exceedingly loyal cloth.)
