J.W. Anderson Puts Hair on High; Kate Upton Talks About Her Body “Flaw”; and More

-------

J.W.AndersonFashion’s wonder boy J.W. Anderson debuted his first advertising campaign, snapped by photog Jamie Hawkesworth. The clothes are certainly worth talking about, but we’re currently crushing on model Lucan Gillespie’s extra-high and wavy pony. (And is that a black scrunchie we spy?) [Vogue.com U.K.]

Blond bombshell Kate Upton revealed to Elle.com that her favorite body part is, wait for it…her eyes. “I have yellow in them, and yellow is my favorite color,” she says. As for the feature she isn’t so fond of: her “baby hands.” We have a feeling that with assets like Upton’s, no one’s checking out her manicure.

While there’s no shortage of rebellious teenagers, Esme Edwards, daughter of makeup artist and Stila founder Jeanine Lobell, is taking a legitimate stand against the sexual beauty standard perpetuated by the press and pop stars. The Cut reported that she rejects the “sex-kitten” vibe, but that isn’t to say she doesn’t have the talent (and creative genes) to pull off the look. Check out the teen’s makeup tutorial and her unrivaled feminist spirit.

According to PeopleStyleWatch.com, nobody was more shocked by Beyoncé’s pixie crop Instagram pics than her go-to hairstylist, Kim Kimble, who had a retro-fifties look planned for a weekend video shoot with her star client. (Guess it’s back to the drawing board.) And for all the naysayers who said she just took out her weave or extensions, Kimble dispelled the rumor by noting that Mrs. Carter has naturally long, thick hair. As if we needed another reason to be jealous of Queen Bey.

If you’re headed to Venezuela and aren’t in need of a haircut, might we suggest getting security for your strands. CNN reports that in the coastal city of Maracaibo, thieves nicknamed piranhas are attacking women for their long hair, which they later sell to salons.

Throwback Thursday: White-Hot Nails

-------

Gail-O'Neill-by-Gilles-Bensimon,-US-ELLE-July-1986Throwback Thursday is a regular 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: Gail O’Neill

The Moment: White nails

The Motivation: We love summer. Finding makeup solutions for melting foundation can be tough, but playing with polish colors? Infinitely more enjoyable when fingernails and toenails are on constant display. The biggest trend we’ve noticed on the streets (or should we say beach?) this summer is white manicures. We’ve already pointed out our five favorite formulas, and now comes a little inspiration. Everything about the above shot of model Gail O’Neill screams summer, but her flawless white manicure is evidence that the look is perfect for the warmer months—way back in 1986, and right now.
