Jared Leto serves as the face for Hugo Boss’ new Red fragrance. Refinery29 reports that he doesn’t look a day older than he did in the nineties, when he played the role of crush-worthy Jordan Catalano in My So-Called Life, and we couldn’t agree more.
In need of more beauty rest? There’s an app for that. According to Huffington Post, Sleep Cycle uses the accelerometer on your phone to monitor your movements and determine what phase of slumber you’re in. After setting a thirty-minute window, an alarm will wake you when you’re in the lightest zone—making for less bleary-eyed mornings.

There was a single hair product on heavy rotation last night on the CFDA red carpet that assisted in a number of sleek updos: To fend off the frizz-inducing weather, hairstylists seemed to be grabbing for hair spray en masse. But it was being used akin to gel, so rather than simply setting strands with a spritz of the perennial style-fixer, models and muses such as Joan Smalls, Erin Wasson, and Rooney Mara sported loads of the stuff, smoothed back from the hairline or along center and deep side parts, respectively, for a lacquered effect. It offers assurance from the muggy temperatures that have been plaguing New York of late and also happens to look dead sexy. Here’s an additional tip for getting an ultrasmooth finish that we picked up from Orlando Pita backstage at Giambattista Valli this season: After applying a generous amount of hair spray, like Phyto’s Workable Holding Spray, use the back, flat side of your comb to create a groove-free slick. The summer humidity won’t stand a chance.
Last night, famed fashion photographer Mario Testino celebrated his legendary body of work with an exhibit that wasn’t in Paris, London, or New York, as these things tend to go. Instead, a troupe of editors and models gathered due north of Manhattan in Boston, where Testino’s images are currently on display at the city’s Museum of Fine Arts. Among the catwalkers to show face at the exhibit’s opening were longtime Testino muse and heavily pregnant Gisele Bündchen—a Boston resident, these days—Karlie Kloss, and Erin Wasson, supers in their own right, all of whom seem to share a similar love for golden highlighted brunette locks with different variances of honey. Which flaxen fix is your favorite?
Supermodel/fashion muse/jewelry designer Erin Wasson ranks right up there at the top of our “favorite catwalkers of all time” list for a number of reasons: first there’s her Texas tomboy past (any girl who can talk—and play—basketball while moonlighting as a major fashion icon is A-OK by us); then there’s the downtown, devil-may-care style sensibility that has led to more than one iconic party photo in the past few years (the paint-splattered sweatpants with slinky tank combo that she wore to Alexander Wang’s A/W 2008 after-party is still a personal favorite). i-D Magazine must share our sentiment, as they shot an entire spread of Wasson being, well, Wasson—no frills and seemingly no makeup either. Hairstylist Dennis DeVoy even managed to keep her signature, messy waves intact for the feature, using Garren’s Designing Spray Tonic to add volume and a bit of texture before weaving-in a matted-down braid that looks effortlessly perfect—much like the model herself.
