Believe it or not, Diana Ross—she of the disco-diva spider lashes, and full head of frizzy ringlets—did her own hair and makeup every time she performed! We repeat: there was no glam squad, according to her daughter, Tracee Ellis Ross. [Huff Po]
Emma Stone nabbed the cover of Interview magazine’s September issue—and wears a futuristic, Blade Runner-style smoky winged eyeliner for the occasion. [Hollywood Life]
We’re always up for a supermodel d.i.y beauty tip and these two are no exception: apparently, Karolina Kurkova applies lemon juice directly to her face to boost radiance and exfoliate, while Miranda Kerr—who sent the blogosphere abuzz last year when she revealed that [one of] the secrets to her slender frame was eating a tablespoon of coconut oilevery day—sleeps with olive oil on the ends of her hair to seal any breakage.

As the Fall shows came to a wrap in March, the season’s clear hair color winner was brunette, which inspired a neo-goth renaissance (and our Fall Beauty Guide). But the dark moment on the runways, which saw blonde beauties like Patricia van der Vliet and Dempsey Stewart adopt espresso dye jobs, left blondes—myself included—a little adrift; how do we, the golden-haired masses, make seasonal color adjustments without committing to a deliberately dark ‘do? “I don’t think these trends need to apply to everyone,” Redken creative consultant Tracey Cunningham assures me. Cunningman is an expert on brightening (she’s the mastermind behind Emma Stone, Kate Bosworth, and Jessica Biel’s lightened locks), so we’re ready to take her at her word. Here, Cunningham weighs in on fall-ifying honeyed hair, why ombré highlights will never go out of style, and the one must-have hair product for flaxen folk.
Brunette is obviously a big trend for fall. But what if you’re blonde and you aren’t quite ready to take that plunge?
Please be careful with trends when you are blonde! I have so many brunettes who show me some blonde picture and it just isn’t going to work—and the same goes for blondes. They are so easily tricked into going brunette and it totally messes up their hair. You can lowlight your hair, make it have a little more depth, but don’t go crazy. If you have been a blonde your whole life I think you should embrace it. You just are blonde.
What if you have been experimenting with lighter shades for summer? Is it necessary to tone down the platinum and add in some amber notes so you don’t look so washed out as your tan fades?
Add some depth, which means going from what you are now to what your root color is—or maybe even a little more of that if you are not a base blonde. It doesn’t mean you need to be as dark as your natural hair, just a little darker. If you ever want to go a shade darker or lighter, always bring a photo. That is one of my main rules.
Will we see some of your blonde clients going darker for fall?
Sarah Paulson just went dark for her role in American Horror Story, actually. Who knows about Emma [Stone] though!
We’ve been on the fence about Emma Stone’s return to flaxen, as we were kind of partial to the honey-ginger hair hue that helped make her (and colorist Tracey Cunningham) famous. But Frida Giannini’s aubergine Gucci gown and the incredible berry lip/pink eye gloss combination that celebrity makeup artist Rachel Goodwin gave Stone for the Paris premiere of The Amazing Spider-Man last night wouldn’t have looked nearly as good had she been a redhead. The stark contrast of the dark colors on her impossibly alabaster skin and tousled, bordering-on-platinum strands provided the kind of gothic glamour that was the big takeaway from the Fall shows. Color us excited if this is what we have to look forward to as more of the season’s best offerings go from the runway to the red carpet. What do you think of the look?
Emma Stone had a busy weekend. The Amazing Spider-Man actress had to double-time work duties at a photo call for the summer blockbuster on Saturday and girlfriend duties when she accompanied on- and off-screen love interest Andrew Garfield to the Tony Awards last night. So, how did the newly blonde-again starlet go from casual cool to the belle of Broadway? With a simple switch of her honey gold locks. Stone wore her bangs brushed forward with a sleek blow-out for press photos and then swept up her texturized strands into an updo with side-slung fringe to play a supporting role at the awards ceremony. Which look do you like best?
The Face Painter: Chanel celebrity makeup artist Rachel Goodwin
The Face: In an effort to amp up the Amazing Spider-Man star’s black Martin Grant bustier top and white skirt, Goodwin decided to boost Stone’s porcelain skin so it looked as though “[she] had spent a day at the beach.” Going for a look that was “slightly sun-kissed,” Goodwin topped a light base of Chanel Le Blanc Sheer Illuminating Base with Revlon PhotoReady Airbrush Mousse Makeup in Nude, a foundation that was two shades darker than Stone’s natural skin tone. A touch of Chanel Powder Blush in In Love on the apples of her cheeks and a dusting of its Natural Finish Pressed Powder imparted a velvety finish.
The Eyes: Incorporating a “classic eye” into the mix, Goodwin blended neutral shades from Chanel’s Quadra Eye Shadow in Prelude across Stone’s lids, lining the upper lash line with a black flick courtesy of Revlon Liquid Liner in Blackest Black. Goodwin then slicked on a few coats of its Grow Luscious Mascara in Blackest Black before filing in Stone’s brows with Chanel’s Sculpting Eye Brow Pencil in Brun Natural.
The Lips: Since joining forces a few years back, statement lips have become a big part of Goodwin and Stone’s face-painting repertoire. Last night was no exception. “The lip was the focal point of the look,” according to Goodwin, who traced Revlon’s Just Kissable Lipstick in Rendezvous, a bright coral, onto Stone’s mouth.
The Result: Pioneering beauty that was 100 percent worth honoring.
