Happy birthday, Jayne Mansfield! The utterly bodacious blonde, whose life was cut tragically short at 34 due to a car crash, would have turned 80 today. Her beauty and style influence remain very much alive. [Life]
Dove’s oh-so-very-viral new ad campaign, wherein sketches compare how women describe themselves with how others describe them, has already earned itself a parody. [Business Insider]
The innovative new Skin Rescuer by Kiehl’s claims to minimize stress…on our skin, at least. [WWD]
Lauren “Tiger Queen” Hutton shares, in a new interview with Net-a-Porter, that in the early days of Kate Moss’ career, she jumped to her defense. “Kate, whom I knew when she was 14, was always being made fun of by the other models. They were jealous, but I was the tiger queen, so I could crack the whip over them.” [HuffPo]
Jerry Hall talks beauty and style with her home state’s Houston Chronicle. A few notable likes and dislikes—”I like smoking, drinking, and coffee, but not too much…everything within moderation”; “I don’t exercise. I don’t like to waste energy on nothing”; “I like the B-movie-starlet look: skin-tight skirts, tight tops, a little bit naughty.” And her antiaging secret? Olive oil. “I give myself a thorough olive-oil soak every week…I just pour a bottle on me and stand around rubbing it in. It’s the best thing in the world for your skin, nails, eyelashes, everything.” [Houston Chronicle]
Proper skincare is apparently a family affair for the Jaggers, as mother Jerry Hall and daughter Georgia May headed down under this week to fête Invisible Zinc, the Aussie sunscreen line whose ad visuals the two women front. So that’s how Hall manages to look so good makeup-free. [Daily Mail]
The blogosphere erupted when actress Emma Watson lopped off her hair into a pixie this summer, and apparently the shearing was in fact an act of rebellion. In the December issue of Vogue U.K., the Harry Potter actress reveals that she was “contractually obligated” to keep her hair long and refrain from getting a tan to play pasty-faced Hermione Granger. [E! Online]
Fans of CND’s long-lasting Shellac polishes will be pleased to know that the two-week manicure line will add 12 more colors to its chip-free offerings next year. [BellaSugar]
Another thing to look forward to in 2011? A new version of Issey Miyake’s famed L’Eau d’Issey—a floral adaptation that looks essential for Spring. [Grazia]
Jerry Hall wears very little makeup in this shot from the book launch party for her new tome, My Life in Pictures, and we think her barefaced look is stunning. The model and mother of four has publicly sworn off plastic surgery, admits to using only simple face washes and creams, and never buys anything that says antiaging because she thinks it’s “insulting.” Nonetheless, she’s as radiant as ever at 54, accentuating her features with a light dusting of peach eye shadow, some mascara, a dab of pink blush on her cheeks, and a clear moisturizing gloss—and don’t forget about that hair! The short-hair-for-middle-aged-women mandate is so old-fashioned, don’t you think?
We’ve often lamented one of evolution’s cruel realities—that men seem to get more attractive and distinguished as they age while women, once they’ve fulfilled their biological duty to reproduce, decline in appearance. But new research suggests that despite the perils of aging, women may be more attractive than men overall. Researchers at the University of Helsinki have found that beautiful women have more children than their plainer counterparts and that a higher proportion of those children are female. Those daughters also tend to be attractive, and so repeat the pattern when they have children, thus driving women to truly embody their fairer-sex designation while men remain primitive in the looks department. The findings emerged from a series of studies of physical attractiveness and its links to reproductive success in humans over the course of four decades. And as one of two daughters from a mother who was quite the traffic-stopper in her day, we are inclined to believe its legitimacy. You?
We know we’ve already paid homage to Georgia Jagger’s good genes and affinity for red lipstick, but rare is the opportunity to see all three Jagger women (or at least the Jerry Hall-and-spawn contingent) all together and all sporting different variations of a scarlet lip. While the photo begs a “who wore it better” question—Lizzie in deepest red, Georgia in a shade or two brighter, or mom—we’re just so elated to have the visual trifecta that we’re going to leave well enough alone and enjoy the moment. You, however, should feel free to voice your opinion below.
