“Relaxed girls who are enjoying their holidays” is how Chanel’s creative director of makeup, Peter Philips, described the effortless, natural beauty look he whipped up in Saint-Tropez last night for the house’s resort collection. So, how best to get the sunkissed complexions spotted on Georgia May Jagger and co.? That would be Vitalumière Aqua, a new lightweight foundation from the brand set to bow in a few months, blended with a few drops of Soleil Tan de Chanel, the popular bronzing fluid from its spring color collection. On the eyes, Philips dipped into his Ombres Contraste Duo eye shadow in Taupe-Délicat, working the shimmering beige hues across lids before softly brushing up models’ brows. Final efforts included coating pouts with an as-yet-unreleased pencil rather than a lipstick or gloss, a few coats of mascara, and multiple pumps of a new Chanel eyelash curler, which was also gifted to Vanessa Paradis, Diane Kruger and other members of the audience. As for the hands, where most Chanel beauty acolytes direct their attention when Karl Lagerfeld’s sartorial extravaganzas begin, nails were painted with baby blue polish for what Philips referred to as “a touch of playfulness.” The lacquer only serves to further demonstrate Philips’ newfound dedication to pastel varnishes, and will hit stores (and wish lists) at the end of the year.
Saturday night’s SAG Awards mimicked last weekend’s Golden Globes in more ways than one. Yes, Sandra Bullock managed to beat out a host of unbelievable talents to take home the Best Actress award again, but what we’re here to talk about is the bevy of low-slung side chignons. Marion Cotillard, Kyra Sedgwick, and Jenna Fischer all wore one, and so did Diane Kruger, albeit with a slightly different take on the popular look. Hair stylist Robert Vetica curled the Inglourious Basterds actress’ hair and used a small amount of Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream to finger-comb and break up the waves. Then he gathered it behind her ear and loosely braided it before looping the end back up and pinning it down. It made for a softer, more tendril-like effect that, with the bright red lip and mustard yellow Jason Wu gown, reminded us of Michelle Williams in a canary yellow Vera Wang at the Oscars in 2006—one of our favorite red-carpet moments of all time. Can you see the similarity?
Yesterday’s People’s Choice Awards officially kicked off the 2010 awards show season. A bevy of A-listers will be hitting the red carpet in the coming weeks, including Diane Kruger, whose impeccable style earned her a coveted spot on this blog—more than once, in fact—during the press junket for Inglourious Basterds last summer. The model-turned-actress, who is just as comfortable in Chanel as she in Jason Wu, easily skirts the line between classic glamour and down-to-earth chic. Last night she chose the latter, going with clean skin, a sheer gloss, a thin helping of black eyeliner, and matte, beach-y waves for the occasion. Will she step it up for the Globes on January 17 or stick with a more casual cool for the occasion? Only time will tell. What do you think of the look?

At last night’s Chanel Fine Jewelry Fête d’Hiver benefit in New York, black and navy were the evening’s big colors, with similarly dark shades of eyeliner also getting a lot of play. If you can focus your attention beyond the ginormous diamond-encrusted camellia around Blake Lively’s neck, how do you like the liner on the inner rims of her eyes with mascara on both the top and bottom lash lines? Do you prefer Diane Kruger’s full brow and softer top-lid-only liner with mauve-y shadow pulled underneath the lower lashes for a touch of subtle smoke? Let us know below.
