At the Fall shows last February, Charlotte Tilbury told us that lip liner would be making a serious comeback, harking back to its early-nineties heyday. And with the influx of bold lip colors that are popular this season, containing all of that pigment with a sharpened pencil has become compulsory. But we were sort of hoping Tilbury was predicting a repeat appearance of the darker line/neutral pout combo, popularized by bands like En Vogue circa ’93—the “Whatta Man” era, if you will. While the look has yet to receive an open-armed embrace on the red carpet, Halle Berry managed to pull off a successful revival effort last night at Keep a Child Alive’s Sixth Annual Black Ball in New York. Do you think it belongs back in the nineties, or would you happily welcome its second coming?
Jessica Biel has just inked a new deal to become a Revlon global brand ambassador. What this means is three things: The actress will join an already impressive list of spokeswomen that includes Academy Award winners Halle Berry and Jennifer Connelly, as well as Jessica Alba and Elle Macpherson. She’ll be involved with various Revlon-sponsored philanthropic activities and fundraising events, in addition to fronting global advertising campaigns, of course. And—here’s the best part—she’ll accompany her superstar boyfriend, Justin Timberlake, at the Costume Institute Gala tonight sporting a makeup look courtesy of Revlon global artistic director Gucci Westman. Stay tuned tomorrow for a full report.
Blonder and more bobbed than usual, Halle Berry was looking a little Stepford Wives for our taste at the 2009 Jenesse Silver Rose gala in Beverly Hills last night. (Luckily, she skipped the strand of pearls and cardigan to match.) We definitely prefer her a bit darker, sans highlights—or with the much discussed afro she broke out briefly last fall. You?
Halle Berry fans, take note: The Oscar winner’s first fragrance, a woody oriental she collaborated on with Coty, hits shelves next week. A nose in her own right (the starlet reportedly delights in mixing and layering scents to create her own signature eau de parfum), Berry’s Halle by Halle Berry features mimosa and fig essences that the press materials explain are intended to evoke “the spirit of a woman who is effortlessly sexy, stylish, and elegant.” If you’re looking for something that’s more deliberately sexy, tacky, and borderline trashy, Jenna Jameson has also just launched her own scent, Heartbreaker by Jenna. (In the world of celebrity fragrance, there is something for everyone.)
When you’re a celebrity, any kind of drastic image change is big news in the blogosphere (not to mention the tabloids and even certain national news outlets committed to covering the “tough stories”). Halle Berry’s recent move from sleek and straight to next-level curls has incited a particularly deafening response, however, garnering a slew of online commentary from “retro-fabulous” to “Afro-licious,” as well as a number of “Scary Spice” shout-outs. And while, sure, we might concur with the particular Afro-liciousness on display (let’s face it, Berry is one of those beauties who looks good no matter what her hairstyle), we’re more curious to know if that is real-deal volume or an elaborate experiment with extensions that the actress devised as a means of throwing off the paparazzi. Or maybe it’s all part of a well-thought-out Halloween costume. Anyone?
