Nail art may have slowed down on the Fall runways, being replaced by creamy nudes and more classic shades of red, pink, and bordeaux lacquer instead, but it is alive and well on the red carpet. Just ask Jessica Biel. The Total Recall star has made funky tips a part of her world press tour for the film, sporting an ivory lacquer with a hot pink diagonal stripe across the top to the film’s premiere in London last night. Halfway across the world in Tokyo and never to be outdone, Rihanna made a strong statement with some finger flair of her own as the hip-hop star walked celebrity’s other red carpet, the airport terminal. Which look are you most compelled to challenge your manicurist with this weekend?
Alright, alright. We’re aware that some of you may have tired of seeing pictures of Jessica Biel’s monstrous engagement ring from fiancée Justin Timberlake (and that for others, the images will never get old), but when the Total Recall actress rocks nail art like this, we need to press the zoom button. Feast your eyes on Biel’s perfectly painted reverse moon manicure, resting ever so lightly against the pink backdrop of one of Raf Simons fresh-off-the-runway Dior Couture dresses at the Colin Ferrell-fronted film’s premiere last night in L.A. It’s not the first time avant-garde polish has been paired with haute couture, of course: Peter Philips employed a similar chrome color around a coral base at Chanel’s “modern vintage” show last month. But on the red carpet, it begs the question: subtly chic, or an unnecessary overstatement? Let us know below.
Another premiere, another opportunity for Jessica Biel to flex her beauty muscle. Since dyeing her hair a shade of dark brunette two years ago, Biel has made frequent hair evolutions a part of her appeal. The future Mrs. Justin Timberlake cut herself a set of blunt bangs back in January, and now she appears to have added sunny highlights back into the fold for the North American leg of the Total Recall press tour. Like the red lip she sported to the film’s photo call in L.A. yesterday—and the massive engagement ring her fiancé picked out for her—the golden streaks are working for us. You too?
Jessica Biel is a guy’s girl. A soccer player growing up, she has kept her athletic curves despite the siren call of increasing fame to shrink down to a size 0. She also happens to be a girl’s girl, possessing a chic, laid-back style that was in full force last night at the ESPY awards in L.A. To properly fête the year’s biggest and best athletes, Biel paired a white Christian Dior minidress with sixties-inspired hair and makeup that included a back-combed, low ponytail with a bit of a bouffant at the crown and a slight cat-eye. Also on view: a freshly painted coral manicure—that just so happened to showcase her enormous engagement ring, picked out by fiancé Justin Timberlake. That’s specifically what makes her a girl’s girl—or rather, the envy of all other girls (sigh). Thoughts on Biel’s retro-gone-modern look?
The celebrity fringe movement that hit its peak about three years ago seems to be having a resurgence. First, Taylor Swift hit the cover of this month’s Vogue with long, face-framing layers, and now both Reese Witherspoon and Jessica Biel have made the cut. Witherspoon, who was spotted at the This Means War premiere last night in London, is revisiting the choppy “breakup bangs” that she debuted at the 2007 Golden Globes following her split from Ryan Phillippe (that was the yellow Nina Ricci dress year, for the red-carpet watchers among you), while the future Mrs. Timberlake has resurrected her side-swept fringe circa 2009 with a much heavier, darker iteration. Thoughts on the style’s second coming?
