Throwback Thursday is a column on Beauty Counter in which we pore over the pages of our favorite glossies from decades past in search of a little modern-day makeup and hair inspiration.
The Model: Renée Simonsen
The Moment: Going Back to the Basics
The Motivation: If New York’s Spring 2014 collections are any indication, over-the-top color—with the exception of a statement lip in vibrant shades of orange, pink, and lilac—is taking a backseat to pristine skin and barely there makeup. From Donna Karan to Proenza Schouler to Narciso Rodriguez, an au naturel finish was the goal, and it’s a look that has stood the test of time. When we spotted this image of model Renée Simonsen, we were struck by her fresh face in a time of serious excess (sure, a slightly smoky eye is present, but it doesn’t overpower her porcelain skin and pared-down pout). It seems that even in 1988—when blue eye shadow, rouged cheeks, and frosted lipstick ran rampant—less was more.
We’ve spent the better part of the last six months regaling you with stories about prominent blondes going brunette. Now, in an interesting turn of events, we’ve got some brunette-to-blonde transitions to report: Both Kim Kardashian and Jessica Alba have highlighted their hair. [NYDN and People]
There’s a new redhead in the mix, too. After a series of blue, purple, pink, and black dye jobs, L’Officiel Paris may have finally found the best hair color for Katy Perry, who sports a gorgeous auburn on the French glossy’s September cover. [Huff Po]
Another day, another teaser trailer for Lady Gaga’s Fame fragrance commercial, which is being treated as importantly as the release of the perfume itself: The full version of the Steven Klein-direct film will make its debut next month…at the Guggenheim. [Hollywood Life]
