Green may have been the color du jour at New York fashion week, but Léa Seydoux entered her blue period just in time for last night’s British Academy Film Awards in London. Paired with Veronica Lake-like waves, her iridescent navy cat-eyes completed the bombshell look. This particular shade of shadow has been getting a lot of play as of late—Keira Knightley wore a similar color a few weeks prior to the premiere of Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit. The budding vert trend on this season’s runways may have some serious red-carpet competition.
If there was ever a reason to swap out black or gray shadow for metallic navy, Keira Knightley’s look at last night’s premiere of Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit would be it. Her pristine complexion, groomed (but not filled in) brows, and tousled low-’do kept the spotlight right where it belonged: on her bold, smoky eyes.
This past season at Proenza Schouler, hairstylist Paul Hanlon was intent on preserving the gentle haze of fuzz that models arrived with backstage at the show. “What you’d normally control, we’re not,” he said, in fear that strands would look more “commercial” if he were to tame every flyaway. Keira Knightley appeared to have followed the same credo at last night’s SeriousFun gala in London. Her undone waves (seen at shows like Balenciaga and Balmain) added an easy elegance to her Chanel Haute Couture gown—the same one she wore for her walk down the aisle and to a party in 2008. A hot hair trend—and great dress—is always worth repeating.
Beauty Vending Machines: Coming To A Subway Station Near You?; Fragrance Bottles For Babies; And More…
Prestige skincare in the convenience of a vending machine? Believe it. BeautyMART, the newly launched project of two British beauty-industry vets, puts primping staples a simple press of the button away. MTA officials, are you listening? [Daily Mail]
They’re certainly not the first magazine to do a makeup-free story, but W‘s new issue may do it best. The glossy got Kristen Stewart, Nicole Kidman, Marion Cotillard, Naomi Watts, Jessica Chastain, and Keira Knightley to go maquillage-free—and guess what? Even with under-eye circles and skin imperfections, they’re all still pretty much drop-dead gorgeous. [Hollywood Life]
It was revealed yesterday via an Instagram from Stefano Gabbana that Dolce & Gabbana is working on a fragrance for babies—a startling revelation that is made that much crazier put into the context of the growing baby-perfume industry. The ultimate luxury is dousing your infant in fine fragrance, it seems. [Fashionista]
Speaking of surprising new scent categories, Stella McCartney would like to bottle the olfactory qualities of a barnyard. The designer, who clearly loves the smell of lily of the valley, which is the top note of her L.I.L.Y scent and its new Absolute, lists her other favorite aromas as the scent of her children’s breath and horses. “My friend and I always joke that one day we’ll launch a horse fragrance—obviously, we’d be the only ones who would buy it,” says McCartney. We’re not so sure about that; brand loyalty can be a funny thing. [InStyle U.K.]
Keira Knightley knows how to wear makeup, which shouldn’t be all that surprising considering she is a Chanel face. That said, we never cease to be amazed when the British-born actress does it up for the red carpet—her recent global premiere rounds for Anna Karenina included. At the film’s debut in L.A. last night, Knightley paired a strapless Erdem gown with a pink lip and an expert, ultra-long cat-eye with lots of lashes—on both the top and bottom. But it was her hair that was most awe-inspiring, featuring two, texturized twists that curved behind each ear before meeting in a messy, free-form chignon at the nape of her neck. Now that’s how you prep for a picture, don’t you agree?
