Maybe it’s the Blondie album I currently have on repeat, the fact that I spent my Friday night watching Heathers and Cry Baby, or that my mom and I spent Mother’s Day browsing through old photos of her in shoulder pads, but I’m really digging an eighties reference at the moment. While many buzzed about the Jason Wu—and not Dior—dress Jennifer Lawrence wore to the world premiere of X-Men: Days of Future Past on Saturday in New York City, or her stumble up the stairs, I was busy admiring her hair. JLaw pinned up her new bob in the back and accented the front with a heavily highlighted swoop. What can I say, I love a sleek style with a side of the totally awesome era—thankfully, the Oscar winner’s bangs weren’t feathered and frozen in place with AquaNet.
With Paris fashion week in full swing, staying awake long enough to watch even the red carpet was next to impossible. Lucky for me, I had quite an impressive force on the ground taking notes. Here, manicurist Deborah Lippmann shares her behind-the-scenes snaps:
DL’s Kit: “What started off as organized has gotten out of control! And in just one day.”
Even the Pros Primp: “My personal glam squad getting me ready. Loving this new mascara—a special gift from my lovely friend [and Lupita Nyong'o's makeup man] Nick Barose.”
Pre-Red Carpet Love: Lupita and her brother Junior.
Ultimate Photo Op: “Ever the photographer, Nick getting a shot of Lupita through the window.”
Triple Threat: “All of the fabulous women who helped complement [and create!] the amazing Jennifer Lawrence’s look.” Lippmann included (seen at left).
JLaw’s Lacquer: “A special combination of Sarah Smile and Tiny Dancer.”
There is no question that Instagram has affected how the world shares information—especially when it comes to beauty. From Beyoncé’s pixie to Jennifer Lawrence’s crop, one selfie (and a few snip-snips) can set the world on fire. JLaw told Barbara Walters last night that, after being selected as one of her 10 Most Fascinating People of 2013, “…the weirdest thing about all of this is probably seeing my haircut on the news.” (Oh, the power of social media.) And this week is no exception: Cara Delevingne dropped her YSL ad campaign; Rihanna revealed that a new namesake fragrance could be in the works (and that she’s the new face of Balmain); and Josephine Skriver showed off how she looks in a wig (one of the year’s most beloved accessories outside of Fendi’s Buggies).

If ever, while reading Catching Fire (the second installment in The Hunger Games series that will grace the silver screen this Friday), you found yourself fantasizing about the über-luxe world of the Capitol, where being adventurous with hair and makeup is de rigueur, then you’re in luck. CoverGirl created the Capitol Beauty Studio, a Web site that showcases twelve looks inspired by the various industrial districts of Panem. While we wouldn’t normally encourage hitting the movies in costume—after all, you wouldn’t want to fall into the same category as a “Trekkie” or Star Wars superfan—this maquillage, created by face painter Dotti, is almost couture-like. And pairs perfectly with Trish Summerville’s (the costume designer for the film) ready-to-wear collection for Net-a-Porter. Katniss Everdeen (a.k.a. Jennifer Lawrence) could easily rock the rich crimson mouth representative of the Luxury district, geometric blocks of cream shadow hailing from her native District 12, and just about everything else in between. Effie Trinket would certainly approve.
Rihanna appears to have jumped on the bob bandwagon—joining recent short-hair converts like Jennifer Hudson, Jennifer Aniston, and Jennifer Lawrence. While we’ve seen the star sport sleek and asymmetrical versions in the past, her new cut is reminiscent of the choppy wigs spotted this season at Fendi. [Instagram]
Elizabeth Arden appointed designer Shoshanna Gruss to Style Director—the first ever for the beauty brand. In addition to Twitter chats and a Polyvore contest, you’ll start seeing the fruits of her labor next fall when a cosmetic bag collection (sold as a gift with purchase) hits counters.
L’Oréal Professionel is going streaking. The company is launching eight shades of liquid-to-powder hair chalk in March of 2014. [WWD]
Scent layering started long before Jo Malone—in the Middle East, it’s customary to offer guests a tray of perfumes post-dinner. So much better than a mint. [Elle.com]
