Jessica Chastain, indie movie darling and newly named face of YSL’s Manifesto fragrance, is a burlesque dancer-turned-femmefatale in John Hillcoat’s Lawless. While it’s the men—Tom Hardy, Shia LaBeouf, and Jason Clark specifically—that are pictured flouting order, disobeying authority, and courting trouble (hence the title) in this newfangled western, the film made us think about the bevy of babes that have been enshrined in Tinseltown’s hall of fame for playing good girls gone bad—and in some cases, bad girls who never gave a damn about being good in the first place. As the film hits theaters this week, we rounded up our favorite female radicals, vigilantes, outlaws, subversives, and provocateurs. The fairer sex? Hardly.
Jessica Chastain has made the cut. The Help star and recently named YSL fragrance face has lopped off her fiery red, shoulder-length locks into a mod-era bob for her role in the sixties flick, The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby. [The Hollywood Reporter]
Chanel Beauty’s much-discussed London pop-up shop opened yesterday in Covent Garden. Among its many makes-you-wish-you-were-in-the-U.K. features is a downstairs nail salon where you can get manicures with a host of the brand’s coveted polishes—as well as consultations with local nail-artist icons, like Sophy Robson and Marian Newman.

Coty CEO Bernd Beetz has announced plans to retire at the end of the month after leading the brand that put celebrity fragrances on the map for over a decade. As Beetz was responsible for wrangling superstars Jennifer Lopez, Beyoncé, and David Beckham and luring them over to the business of beauty, it’s safe to assume that he’s going to have one hell of a good-bye party.

First came the crackle top coats, magnetic lacquers, and DIY appliqués, now comes news of yet another nail innovation: the color-changing varnish. The brand Ruby Wing has debuted a collection of polishes that change color in the sun. What will they think of next? [Fashionista]
Karl Lagerfeld is teaming up with Shu Uemura to launch a limited-edition range of pigments inspired by the designer’s love of the Japanese-born brand, whose products he exclusively uses when sketching. “Other manufacturers do not offer such beautiful colors,” he says. Except for Chanel, right? [WWD]
First came the spokesperson gigs for diet pills and burger joints, then the signature scents and skincare brands, and now the sisters Kardashian are teaming up on their very own makeup line. Khroma Beauty will “resonate strongly with multiethnic women of all ages who aspire to the Kardashian style of beauty.” Be afraid. [NYDN]
Daphne Groeneveld is the new face—and body—of Dior’s Dior Addict fragrance. See her scantily clad frame in a series of teaser videos for the scent’s full-length cinemercial, due out later this month. [Fashion Etc]
Jessica Chastain has been named the new face of Yves Saint Laurent’s forthcoming fragrance, Manifesto. It’s her first beauty contract—and was really only a matter of time. [WWD]
While the Cannes Film Festival kicked off with a bounty of beautiful sunshine last week, the Cote d’Azur was engulfed by spotty showers over the weekend—which means red-carpet screenings have taken a turn for the soggy. But no matter; evening gowns and perfect coifs wait for no one, Mother Nature included. So, what’s a starlet to do with her hair when the forecast calls for paparazzi flashbulbs mixed with humidity and frequent downpours? Go for texture, as Jessica Chastain did on Saturday. The Lawless star and Cannes fixture opted for smooth, straight strands and a subtle side braid at the film’s daytime photo call, but when the clouds rolled in later in the day, so did her set of soft waves, finished off with two frizz-fighting front twists joined in the back with a bejeweled, star-shaped hair pin. It’s a good lesson for those of you struggling with similar, weather-related styling constraints today in New York. Thoughts on the redheaded beauty’s transitional look?
At last night’s Met gala, there was something noticeably missing—and we’re not talking about Ashley Olsen’s absence or a lack of feathered dresses (there were plenty of those). We’re talking specifically about the bounty of red lips you except to see at these functions, which were simply nowhere to be found. In their place: Fall’s favorite black cherry pout. There were a few bold crimsons in the crowd to speak of, on Carolyn Murphy and Doutzen Kroes specifically. But for the most part, it was all about mulberry mouths, which were spotted on everyone from Jessica Chastain, Rachel Zoe, and Amber Valletta to Camilla Belle, Lana Del Rey, Kate Bosworth, and Jessica Alba. We’re not usually in the horn-tooting business, but…we told you so.
