Barack Obama’s re-election committee reportedly has a special incentive for prospective campaign donors: nail polish. The Obama campaign is reviving a product initiative it started last month and is selling a custom, three-piece collection of Le Métier de Beauté lacquers at $40 a pop. Sure, they’re receiving a little bit of flack for shelling out to the tune of $10,000 to create the varnishes, but, like, polish for politics is kind of an awesome idea. Mark us down for a set.

As per yesterday’s news roundup, Hunger Games hairstylist Linda Flowers confirmed that Elizabeth Banks’ character’s hair in the movie required the most work. But Jennifer Lawrence’s on-screen tresses may have required the most money. Lawrence apparently refused to play guinea pig when Flowers was experimenting to find Katniss Everdeen’s perfect shade of brunette, so the coiffing star bought five $6,000 wigs to arrive at the right color before actually dyeing Lawrence’s blond strands.

Jessica Alba is in New York this week promoting her new movie Little Fockers—and what better time to debut a new haircut! “Renato cut it,” she told us yesterday at an intimate gathering at the Trump Soho hotel to introduce Revlon’s latest product line. Renato, of course, is Renato Campora, Frédéric Fekkai celebrity stylist and the man responsible for Alba’s new blunt-cut bob. Being part of the cast for the third installment of the Meet the Parents franchise starring Ben Stiller and Robert De Niro was a dream come true for the actress. “I’ve always wanted to do comedy,” she told us, explaining that comedians like Lucille Ball and Peter Sellers are why she got into the business in the first place. “I really felt like I needed to bring my A game,” she added, referring to her co-star Ben Stiller as a “comic genius.”
While we can’t attest to Alba’s performance, we can say that she hit a home run with her makeup at the Ziegfeld Theatre last night. “Young and fresh with a holiday sparkle” is how face painter Lauren Andersen described the look she crafted to complement Alba’s strapless white Valentino dress. Starting with Revlon ColorStay foundation as a base, Andersen added its Fluid Sheer in gold to the star’s cheeks for luminescence, topping it off with Mineral Blush in Petal, a light pink. Andersen wanted the focal point to be Alba’s eyes, so she dusted them with Dior 5-Color Palette in Incognito and MAC Pro Glitter in Reflects Gold. A precise swipe of Hourglass Liquid Eyeliner in Black and Kevin Aucoin’s Brow Pencils in Blonde (to fill) and Brunette (to shape) completed the look. On her lips: Revlon’s ColorBurst Lip Gloss in Bronze Shimmer.
As for her post-premiere plans, all Alba wants for the holidays is a vacation, a neck massage, and maybe some jewelry. “I love vintage jewelry,” she told us. “And anything Eddie Borgo. It’s just art—so pretty!”
With no supermodel or superhero theme providing fodder for the outrageous looks of Met galas past (remember Madonna’s Vuitton bunny ears?), this year’s American Woman exhibit seemed to inspire a general air of classic simplicity in the beauty department—with a few colorful moments thrown in for good measure (more on that in an upcoming post). One of the biggest trends on the red carpet seemed to be an homage to pin curls and marcel waves, styles preferred by starlets of the thirties and forties—and a handful of their twenty-first-century counterparts last night. Jessica Alba, Kate Bosworth, Kristen Stewart, Marion Cotillard, and Iman all sported variations on sleek, ridged texture with deep side or middle parts. Who do you think did the ‘do best?
