“Men aren’t attentive to girls who wear glasses,” claimed nearsighted knockout Pola Debevoise (played by Marilyn Monroe) in the 1953 classic How to Marry a Millionaire. But the conclusion of the movie—and multiple celebs sporting frames on the red carpet—proves otherwise. Male opinions aside, specs are having a serious style moment. Everyone from Lupita Nyong’o at the MTV Movie Awards to models this past season at Rodarte illustrate that wearing frames after dark is a beauty move worth trying. As chic as Jennifer Lawrence makes stumbling up the stairs look, seeing clearly and walking with confidence is always on trend. Here, a roundup of our favorite girls in glasses: Click to view the slideshow.
Since making a huge splash on the Spring and Fall runways, hair accessories have become an ever-increasing red-carpet staple as well. From barrettes and coronets to bedazzled baubles and bands, starlets can’t seem to get enough of the insta-embellishments, and this weekend’s GLAAD Media Awards in L.A. were no exception. Taking a page out of Rodarte’s Fall beauty book, Elle Fanning wore a Jennifer Behr circlet, while Kirsten Dunst opted for the simplicity of a thick black satin ribbon, not unlike the leather version Guido Palau placed over side plaits at Valentino. Which look do you prefer?
We’ve done plenty of reporting on fashion’s recent obsession with 3-D eye liner—from Pat McGrath’s sequin appliqués at Givenchy’s Spring 2012 show to the nearly identical look makeup artist Lisa Aharon devised for this week’s Novis presentation in New York. And while the face-painting establishment continues to impress us by sticking everything from triangular cat-eye cutouts to Swarovski crystals onto lids and lips, New York magazine may have just upped the ante. Behold, the ice cream sprinkle as makeup. It’s unlikely we’ll be seeing it on the runway anytime soon, but it sure makes for a sweet bit of, er, eye candy. Thoughts on the look?
If you ask us, dip-dyed hair is over. But the digitally-enhanced colored streaks and scribbles in the new, Elle Fanning-fronted issue of Bullett magazine? Those we can get behind. [BULLETTMedia via MTV]
Guess how many tons (not pounds) of prosthetic makeup the special effects team went through during production on The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. No, no—guess. Alright; we’ll tell you. Four tons of silicon casting—just for the actors’ faces! [NYDN]
Speaking of The Hobbit, one of the prequel’s stars, Cate Blanchett, is already dishing out red carpet beauty tips in anticipation of the upcoming awards season. “I decant the [SK-II] Revival Essence into spray bottles and just mist it on over my makeup,” the brand’s global ambassador says. “It keeps you from getting that awful, cracky look.” [Allure]
Friends of Chanel and house ambassadors of both the official and unofficial variety, hit the red carpet last night in New York to celebrate the brand’s Bijoux de Diamant 80th anniversary where the dress code might as well have been “dripping with jewels.” Blake Lively, Rose Byrne, Diane Kruger, and January Jones all sported dazzling earrings, rings, cuffs and the like from the brand’s exquisite fine jewelry collection—as did Elle Fanning who seemed pleased enough to have her fingers full of the sparkling gems. But we were more taken with the teenage starlet’s other accessory: a black, shimmer-rimmed porkpie hat sitting atop a striking honey-gold side braid that kept her look age-appropriate, yet still managed to keep pace with the A-listers twice her age. To which we say, well done. You too?
