Do The (Marcel) Wave


A curious retro beauty movement has gained steam over the past few weeks, as a collective homage to old Hollywood hairstyles seems to have taken hold of the runway and the red carpet. Pin-tucked faux bobs were spotted backstage at Christian Dior Couture last week, and then there’s the uptick in marcel waves with both Katherine Heigl and Keira Knightley sporting side parts and soft bends that segued into low chignons last night at the Paris premiere of One for the Money and the U.K. premiere of A Dangerous Method, respectively. You can chalk it up to awards season being in full swing, and we couldn’t be happier to see classic coiffure back in the spotlight. You too?

Keira Knightley’s Hard Line


Keira Knightley has been a part of the bob brigade since March 2010 when she turned at Chanel’s Fall show having lopped off her long light brown locks in favor of a chin-grazing crop. She’s maintained it quite nicely since, keeping it short and wearing it wither textured or pin-straight, depending upon the red carpet event. But at a photocall this morning in Venice for her film, A Dangerous Method, the actress revealed a new, angled version of the classic cut. Worn middle parted and severely sleek, the longer-in-front, shorter-in-back style creates a hard line around Knightley’s face, which actually works well with her angular, features, in our opinion. But what do you think?

Lady Gaga’s Dirty Little Secret, Going Gray Younger, And More…


Lady Gaga opens up about her beauty routine, which includes a loyalty to Ivory soap—but not every night. The pop star admits that she regularly goes to bed with makeup on. We imagine those facial horns she’s been sporting lately are a bitch to maneuver against the pillow. [People StyleWatch]

Here’s a new acronym to add to the old beauty lexicon: GHOSTS (Gray-Haired Over-Stressed Twenty-Somethings). It’s a word professionals are now using to describe the uncharacteristically large number of women that have started going gray before they hit 30. [Daily Mail]

Keira Knightley, “Chanel Superwoman;” Frédéric Fekkai Takes Flight; And More…


Pictures leaked of Keira Knightley’s catsuit-clad new campaign for Chanel Mademoiselle late last year, and now clips from the fragrance’s forthcoming commercial have hit the web. In a voice-over describing the making of the ad, Knightly refers to her character as a “Chanel superwoman”—who presumably fights for good in the face of poorly dressed evil. [Grazia]

The latest installment of WWD’s Beauty Inc.—the new monthly trade glossy for beauty industry execs, retailers, and enthusiasts—is officially out, with two articles from the March “power issue” already online for your reading pleasure. Clinique’s global brand president Lynne Greene plays cover star and talks about revitalizing the brand by focusing on dermatological products—like those that target hypoallergenic concerns and redness remedies—rather than simply jumping on board the anti-aging bandwagon, while famed coiffeur, Frédéric Fekkai, opens up about his passion for helicopter flying. Fekkai’s AStar 350 Eurocopter gets him to Montauk in 40 minutes flat—which sure beats the four hours of summer traffic on the LIE. [WWD]

Speaking of shear geniuses, Bumble and Bumble founder Michael Gordon, who added documentary film producer to his resume last month with the release of “Vidal Sassoon: The Movie,” is looking to tap into the Internet with his next venture. Gordon is launching in the hopes of creating a web space for dialogue about the beauty industry. [WWD]

First Kate Winslet, now Katherine Heigl. The age of the celebrity platinum crop is upon us. [PopSugar]

A video of Galliano’s elaborate runway bow from Dior’s Spring couture show may still be on loop at the houses spa in Paris, but the deposed designer’s own beauty ventures are fairing less well internationally in the wake of his anti-Semitic outbursts. In Canada, major department stores have systematically pulled his Parlez Moi d’Amour fragrance from shelves. [StyleLite]

Carey Mulligan’s Hair Heartache; Politicos: Hot Or Not?; And More…


All the dying, bleaching, cropping, and cutting has apparently taken a toll on Carey Mulligan’s tresses. The actress is reportedly taking Kérastase protein pills to grow her hair back to its An Education-era length. Personally, we like her with a pixie. [Daily Mail]

Proving that politicians are not immune to our country’s fascination with youth and beauty, a new slideshow pits young and old images of political personalities against one another, asking readers to decide whether they were better off “young and fun” or if they look “better with age.” We’ll tell you this much: Hillary Rodham Clinton was a bookish fox back in the day. [msnbc]

After announcing in October that Amanda Seyfried would be its first ever celebrity spokesperson, Clé de Peau has leaked images of her ad campaign for the brand, lensed by David Sims. All eyes and pouty lips, Seyfried is a bona fide beauty star. We expect to hear about a hair contract for the young actress any day now. [Racked]

Ever wonder what Keira Knightley would look like with kohl-rimmed eyes and a drawn-on handlebar mustache? Yes? Well, here you go. [Fashion Gone Rogue]
