After a string of new model (Lara Stone) and celebrity (Blake Lively) partnerships for L’Oréal Paris in 2013, the brand’s Professionnel line signed Kirsten Dunst as its first spokesperson. According to WWD, the actress will serve as the face for styling launches from Beach Waves and Absolut Repair Lipidium in the New Year. From corkscrew curls in Interview with the Vampire to towering wigs in Marie Antoinette, Dunst certainly demonstrates range.
“I’ve never seen someone travel with so much in my life,” model Naomi Campbell told WSJ. Magazine of Pat McGrath’s makeup cache. “And that says something, coming from me.” But the face painter made a case for not packing light: “When you walk into a room and there are racks and racks of beautiful clothes, do you really want to ruin it all with a bad lipstick?” she said. Point taken. [WSJ. Magazine]
The body part Behati Prinsloo won’t be baring at this year’s Victoria’s Secret fashion show? Her arms. A British military-style jacket will keep her guns under cover. [Elle.com]
L’Oréal Paris has certainly scooped up a lot of star power in the past few weeks (signing both Blake Lively and Lara Stone as spokeswomen for the brand). But according to recent reports, Adele won’t be belting out “Because you’re worth it” anytime soon. Not even for 12 million pounds. [Refinery29]
Two Jennifers have recently made the chop—but not out of desire for kicky new cuts. For Jennifer Aniston, it was a Brazilian blow-out gone terribly wrong that did her in, but Jennifer Lawrence has Catching Fire director Francis Lawrence to blame. Constant hair-dyeing, in the name of Katniss, left this tribute’s long strands fried and a pixie in their place. [New York]
It’s not exactly shocking that Blake Lively is joining the L’Oréal Paris family as a global spokesperson. The actress comes in on the heels of model Lara Stone, who was announced as the face of the cosmetic giant just over two weeks ago. Looks like the brand is stocking up on big hitters to sell beauty products and the message “Because you’re worth it.” And who wouldn’t want to look every bit as blond and glowing as Lively did yesterday in Paris, wearing a powder blue houndstooth-print Balmain dress and bubblegum pink lipstick?
After chatting with the new face of L’Oréal Paris and the model that makes many a man weak in the knees, Lara Stone, I learned that even supers get bedhead. “I have fine hair, and when I wake up in the morning it’s sort of in one giant dreadlock,” she explained. “I think I sleep really well, but maybe I don’t!” Her secret weapon: the Tangle Teezer. The British import doesn’t boast a handle or fancy boar bristles—instead its ergonomic shape fits in the palm of your hand and the plastic teeth gently glide through snarls without causing damage. And for models (and non-models alike) on the move, there’s the Compact Styler (shown at left in gold)—a travel-size version that comes with a cap to prevent the bristles from being crushed in transit.
She’s one of the most coveted models (and bodies) in the business—serving as the face for Calvin Klein, Givenchy, and Belstaff, among others. Now, Lara Stone will utter global beauty giant L’Oréal Paris’ four famous words to women all over the world: Because you’re worth it. “I think that’s a pretty incredible message to convey,” says Stone. As for joining the ranks of supers and stars like Laetitia Casta, Beyoncé Knowles, Doutzen Kroes, Julianne Moore, and Jane Fonda, she says, “It wasn’t really anything I ever expected to happen in my career…I never could really see myself in their lineup.” While her gap-toothed smile, sensual curves, and “X-rated lips,” as described by Calvin Klein, make Stone anything but the stereotypical, lithe catwalker, it’s these non-cookie-cutter features that have earned her opening spots and exclusives on multiple runways. Designer Riccardo Tisci told W magazine that he “fell in love” upon first meeting the voluptuous and soft-spoken Dutch beauty in 2006 during castings for Givenchy’s couture show—an effect, it seems, she continues to have on many.
