Between film premieres, parties, and celeb-studded events around the globe, this week was full of memorable hair and makeup looks (including Katy Perry’s emerald strands and Lupita N’yongo’s modern pouf). Here, we recap five more of our favorite beauty moves.
Kate Bosworth; Tiffany & Co.’s Blue Book Party; New York, NY
Kate Bosworth always adds something a little unexpected to her beauty look. At last night’s Tiffany & Co. party, she expertly teamed tangerine lips (à la Rag & Bone Spring ’14) with a powder puff pink gown.
Emma Stone; The Amazing Spider-Man 2 world premiere; London, England
Further proof that berry lips work all year-round—and we love how they complement Stone’s canary yellow dress.
Hilary Rhoda; Tiffany & Co.’s Blue Book Party; New York, NY
Sometimes it’s chic to match your makeup to your outfit. Hilary Rhoda’s icy blue shadow and navy sweater looked fresh—not retro—with a messy updo and nude gloss.
Diane Kruger; FX Networks Screening of Fargo; New York, NY
If anyone can pull off a frosted lip, it’s Diane Kruger. The actress opted for a toned-down version of Rodarte’s sparkling Fall ’14 beauty look, then added some depth with a smoky eye.
Constance Jablonski; Tiffany & Co.’s Blue Book Party; New York, NY
Jablonski may or may not have woken up like this. Smudged, lived-in liner and a messy pony looked effortless and sexy for a night on the party circuit.
Braids and bold lips abounded on the red carpet in 2013, but oddly enough, so did pink hair color. From young starlets to a more, ahem, mature crowd, rose-tinted strands made an appearance at multiple awards shows and galas. Diane Kruger dyed the ends of her knotted ponytail a shocking shade for the Met ball, while Sienna Miller opted for an allover pastel hue at the British Fashion Awards. And then there was Helen Mirren, who at 68 showed her true colors at the BAFTAs. Mirren may have played the conservative royal mum (for which she won an Oscar in 2007), but this beauty risk might even make the Queen blush.

Racked reports that Marc Jacobs is set to open an outpost on Bleecker Street (the former home to his collection of women’s accessories) for his new namesake beauty line. The 122-piece range launches at Sephora this Friday, but set a calendar alert now—the teaser of five products that debuted online earlier in the summer sold out within hours.
Chapter two in Chanel’s video skincare campaign with new face Diane Kruger debuted today. If you can’t follow en français, don’t fret; there are subtitles. Kruger cites Coco Chanel as a symbol of freedom because she never made compromises—not even in the name of fashion and beauty. She also speaks of the fashion house’s continued support throughout her career: “Chanel has always been by my side, when I was a very young model and now that I am an actress.” It’s nice to have friends in high places.
Indie perfumer Sanae Barber collaborated with Father John Misty to create a new scent based on the concept of innocence. The folksinger originally wanted the fragrance to include notes of orange blossom and violet, but the end result actually smells faintly of marijuana. While it wasn’t intentional, Barber told The Cut, “I think with any kind of scent, it is related to drugs and getting high because it creates an experience.” This eau isn’t exactly virtuous, if you ask us.
According to Elle.com, the “clavicut” is the new Karlie (i.e., the cropped hairstyle named after super Karlie Kloss that spawned a wave of similar bobs). The collarbone-grazing style is the next big thing, says backstage regular Luigi Murenu: “It’s much cooler than really long or really short hair, which are usually styled one way.”
Diane Kruger Shows Off Her French; Gucci Westman’s Beauty Beginnings; What Your Nail Shape Says About You; and More-------
Diane Kruger, who was recently announced as the new face of Chanel skincare, appears in a short film accompanying the house’s La Commence de Beauté campaign that debuted today. The actress and Karl Lagerfeld muse discusses her views on beauty in fluent French. “I believe that beauty is not skin deep. I believe that beauty is something that you earn,” she said. “It’s a question of curiosity, culture, a certain strength of character.”
New online beauty destination Byrdie is off to a productive start this week. Today, renowned makeup artist (and Revlon’s global artistic color director) Gucci Westman opened up about the first time she wore makeup. “I think I was maybe 15. It would have been a baby blue eye shadow—this is terrible—a sort of cool blue mascara, and blue on the inner waterline with really, really thin plucked eyebrows, pink cheeks, and bronzer—God, don’t ever do that. It’s because I wasn’t allowed to wear makeup, so I brought stuff to school and put it on in the bathroom. I thought I looked major.” We’ve all been there, but it’s reassuring to hear about professionals fumbling early on, too.
Despite years of manicures, we’re still never quite sure what to say when asked “round or square?” To clear up that question, Vogue Australia broke down what your nail shape says about you. According to the article, ladies who opt for round “favor timeless over trend-based pieces…and like nails to take a backseat to sartorial choices,” while square girls don’t mind “trying loud colors or exploring nail art.” Meanwhile, those who keep their claws super short are “low maintenance,” and fans of “stiletto” talons “don’t shy from the spotlight.”
It shouldn’t come as too big of a shock that Old Hollywood continues to inspire the red carpets of today; classic glamour, after all, never goes out of style. So we were unsurprised to see the screen-siren triple threat—think: red lips, side parts, and smooth waves—at not one but two star-studded functions last night. Amy Adams sported Votre Vu’s forthcoming French Kiss in Annette, a bright tomato-tinged crimson, to promote Man of Steel at the summer blockbuster’s New York premiere, while Chanel skincare face, Diane Kruger, went for a glossier true scarlet, like the brand’s Rouge Allure in Incandescent, at the Broadcast Television Journalists Association’s Critics’ Choice Television Awards in L.A. Bicoastal beauty at its best. Who do you think is working a better Veronica Lake?
