Ruby Jean Wilson made headlines back in September when she opened Marc Jacobs’ Spring show with a mattified platinum dye job that Guido Palau teased and tousled to create one of the more convincing Edie Sedgwick tributes on record. “I was bored with [it],” the 19-year-old Scottish beauty told us backstage of her formerly brunette hair, which ION Studio’s Mauricio Bermudez transformed into a rooty white blonde before Women and Supreme founder Paul Rowland hacked Wilson’s hair into a chin-grazing bob. Four months later and it appears as if Marc’s muse was ready for another change. Wilson stars alongside Janice Alida in Jacobs’ pre-fall Louis Vuitton lookbook, and at stylist extraordinaire Katie Grand’s request, she is sporting deep chocolate strands, a faded boy crop, and a very heavy set of bangs courtesy of hairstylist Malcolm Edwards and colorist Amy Fish. A bold move before the Fall shows start next month, to be sure, but hey—you don’t score consecutive Marc Jacobs-designed campaigns resting on your laurels. Thoughts on Ruby’s new look?
The past twenty-four hours have been a red-carpet watcher’s dream come true. Last night, Emma Stone hit the Gangster Squad premiere in L.A. in a fresh-off-the-runway—we’re talking not even a day old—Lanvin pre-fall dress, while Jessica Chastain sported an Oscar de la Renta lace confection at the Mama opening in New York. But their combined star power didn’t even come close to besting Kerry Washington, who continues to turn it out on the European leg of the Django Unchained world tour. At a photo call in Berlin this afternoon, the actress sported one of the checkered sheath dresses from the Louis Vuitton Spring collection—and brought the hair look along for the ride; if the side-slung bangs and that perfectly askew bow look familiar, it’s because Guido Palau constructed the same style backstage in Paris, albeit with a swept-up bouffant rather than a back-combed half-up, half-down. Kerry, still killing it. Don’t you agree?
There was an ongoing rivalry between nineties- and sixties-inspired beauty looks for Spring, as the former’s minimalism faced off against the latter’s over-the-top love of lashes, liner, and big, bouffant hair. For members of the style set looking for a little inspiration, though, there was much more to mine from retro throwbacks at shows like Oscar de la Renta, Marc Jacobs, Gucci, and Louis Vuitton—just ask Giovanna Battaglia. The W contributing editor slicked on a black cat-eye and a towering crown of beehive-caliber braids for the Take Home a Nude benefit art auction at Sotheby’s in New York last night, showing up even the best sixties runway tribute. Eat your heart out, Moschino. Thoughts on @Bat_Gio’s impressive coif?
Petite, pink-haired model Charlotte Free has just been named the newest face of Maybelline, a development that was “leaked” online via P’Trique, the fashion world’s favorite YouTube star-of-the-moment. [Fashionista]
Cool as she is, the 18-year-old California native’s appointment may or may not skew well with consumers. According to a new study, 78 percent of females would like to see “real women” in beauty ad images, rather than celebrities and teenage models. [Daily Mail]
After news spread that Louis Vuitton would be venturing back into the fragrance arena following its departure in the early twentieth century, the house is proving that it has no intentions of skimping on the process. The French brand is reportedly breaking ground on its very own “perfume creation workshop” in Grasse. [Invest in Cote d'Azur]
Your eyes are bigger than your stomach, as the old adage goes. But what if they weren’t? That’s the premise behind new “diet glasses,” which, according to a group of Japanese researchers, make forkfuls appear bigger, thus tricking your brain into thinking you are eating more than you actually are. Only in Japan… [NYDN]
Getting glam for the Golden Globes takes a lot more than just 24 hours of preparation. Charlize Theron will apparently get a 50-minute Power Peel with microdermabrasion at Ole Henriksen five days before Sunday’s show, while Kate Winslet will be popping in for a last-minute electrocurrent Red Carpet Facial with Tracie Martyn before she breaks for L.A.

After creating a one-of-a-kind bald Barbie for a 4-year-old undergoing chemotherapy treatment last year, Mattel is being lobbied by a growing number of Facebook fans to mass-produce the doll for all girls—and women—suffering from hair loss. [Huff Po]
Women, like, say, Lady Gaga. After admitting last year that she was going partially bald following years of chemical hair treatments, the pop diva took to Twitter yesterday to say that she’d suffered some scalp burns after a late-afternoon bleaching session. Ouch. [Twitter]
All talk right now may be about the resurrection of Louis Vuitton’s fragrance business, but what about its once booming cosmetics business? Vintage lacquer duos from the brand have resurfaced online and they’re not cheap; a red and ivory varnish set will cost you a cool $595. [Racked]
There is a spoof commercial circulating the Internet today about the “the next revolution in beauty,” a.k.a, Fotoshop by Adobé. The idea of bottling Photoshop is funny enough, but the fake ad masters the tone of a classic beauty commercial, which adds just a little more hilarity to the equation. [Fashionista]
