M.I.A.’s gold talons were plenty flashy, but the biggest beauty statement at the Met gala belonged to January Jones, who sported a dramatic smoky gray eye with what her makeup artist, Rachel Goodwin, described as a “futuristic edge.” Goodwin dragged the blue and gray shades from Chanel’s Quadra Eye Shadow in Bleu Celeste from Jones’ lids all the way across her temples in a move that instantly brought us back to the Spring 2010 shows, where similar looks were featured at
both Balenciaga and Viktor & Rolf. Seeing runway-inspired makeup in reality is always exciting, especially when the woman wearing the look in question is actually pulling it off. Do you think Jones is selling it?
Amy Adams, Angelina Jolie, and Jennifer Aniston still don’t have beauty contracts. Neither do Rachel Bilson, Sandra Bullock, or January Jones. So who’s next? Our money is on Taylor Swift. If you see a fragrance from the country crossover sensation in the coming year, we told you so. [WWD]
Good news: The elusive male contraceptive pill is currently undergoing clinical trials. Bad news: a new study shows that most women are skeptical as to whether their partners would remember to take it. [Science Daily]
If you’ve been wondering why Hayden Panettiere dyed her hair red, it’s because the Heroes star is apparently tired of being thought of as cute—a difficult mold to break out of when you are 5″ 2″ and play a cheerleader on TV. [Avon]
In other questionable hair color choices, yesterday’s news that Kate Moss had jumped on the gray-hair-is-now-cool-for-all-ages bandwagon is, well, yesterday’s news. The model is back to her golden blond just 24 hours later. Perhaps we should consider her two-tone moment a fleeting homage to her pal Daphne Guinness. [Daily Mail]
Aging is not necessarily gradual, a new study shows, and can actually take a nose-dive into wrinkles territory once you reach a “tipping point,” now thought to be age 35. Enjoy 34 while it lasts. [Daily Mail]
At the 14th Annual GQ Men of the Year Party in L.A. last night, January Jones sported an interesting updo that was part braid, part bun. The easy-to-replicate look starts with a high ponytail that is braided through its length and then wrapped around the base of the elastic using bobby pins to secure where needed. There’s something medieval about it, although her heavy-handed eyeliner application—with extra helping of metallic shadow—brings it right back to the twenty-first century. Do you like the multitasking style?
The Mad Men fans among you are no doubt counting the days until the August 16 premiere of season three. But if you just can’t wait until then to get your fix, we suggest picking up a copy of the August issue of Interview magazine, the cover of which features one January Jones. Interviewed by Jack Nicholson, the actress talks life, career, and her unusual name—”It’s from a book called Once Is Not Enough by Jacqueline Susann,” she told Nicholson. “I could’ve been an actress, a superhero, or a stripper.” In the Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin-shot portfolio, Jones models a gravity-defying mass of hair, not to mention some serious lashes and a flawless complexion, courtesy of makeup artist Lisa Butler. While we’re sure the magic of Photoshop was employed just a bit to complete the illusion of perfection, Butler used Temptu’s airbrush foundation to give Jones the right amount of dewy coverage, sans cake-y finish.

In celebration of World Oceans Day, January Jones did her best Rayanne Graff impersonation at a La Mer sponsored event in L.A. last night by braiding a few sections of the front of her hair. The apricot blush and peach lip gloss she sported to complement the style was distinctly less My So-Called Life, but we love that she brought back the nineties texturizing technique, even just for one night.
