We’re of the mind that you can never have too many lip balms—even in the summer, when January’s cold, whipping winds are but a distant memory. We collect them, actually, so every bag switch or coat-pocket dig-around typically results in the discovery of a long-forgotten tube or tub of the suppleness-inducing emollients. But we don’t plan on losing Tatcha’s new Camellia Nourishing Lip Balm—anytime soon, at least. The squalene and camellia-, rice-, and macadamia-oil-enriched salve penetrates into lips almost on impact and features a small square of 24-karat-gold leaf on the top of the jar to evoke the Japanese brand’s homage to Imperial Japan and the opulent beauty rituals of its geisha girls. With every rub of the finger, a bit of the gilded shimmer melts deeper into the formula (and into our hearts).

Also making hair-transformation headlines today is Jennifer Connelly, who has sheared off her long raven-hued locks in favor of a super-chic bob. [HuffPo]
Believe it or not, even Jennifer Aniston gets hair envy. When asked if she had a hair icon recently, she responded, “Kate Middleton.” Mark another one for the Duchess. [E!]
Breaking: Justin Bieber wears makeup—just a little concealer, some powder, and a bit of brow gel, according to makeup artist Kirsti van Zyl. Gotta look good for the fans, you know? [Hollywood Life]
No word on whether Biebs is into polish, too, but man-icures are apparently a growing part of the booming nail business. [New York Times]
Designing wardrobe staples that also happen to be interesting is no easy feat. In fact, many would say that it’s an art mastered by a select few. Chilean-born, New York–based designer Maria Cornejo is certainly among them. Cornejo worked as a creative consultant for big-time retailers like Joseph and Jigsaw, and was one half of the design partnership Richmond Cornejo, before branching out to craft her eponymous line in the late nineties. A collection of fluid architectural silhouettes, many of them cut and draped from a solitary piece of fabric, is progressive minimalism at its very finest, and her singular aesthetic has earned her discerning devotees like Christy Turlington, Tilda Swinton, and even First Lady Michelle Obama. Nowadays Cornejo, who has freestanding stores in New York and L.A. and a lengthy list of retailers around the globe, calls Brooklyn home, where she lives with her husband, photographer Mark Borthwick, and their two children. Here, she divulges some of her favorite local spots and splurges.
Solitary Scent: Escentric Molecules 01
“I first smelled this on Tim Blanks. On men or women, it’s pretty irresistible. Even my animals love it! I think it becomes about the wearer, which is important for any fragrance.”

The Makeup Guru: Dick Page
“Dick is a close friend and an amazing artist. We’ve been working together for years now, and I love collaborating with him. He always brings something fresh to the makeup. He also knows all my music references because we are the same age!”
The Wonderful Workout: Re:Ab Pilates
“I couldn’t avoid it for any longer because it’s right down the hallway from my studio. Instead of taking a lunch I usually run into Re:Ab for 45 minutes to take a class once a week. I also love the YMCA on Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn. There are lots of locals of all sorts (moms, dads, kids), and I really like to do the beginner’s yoga class, a.k.a. the ‘granny class’!”

When we learned that Sofia Coppola’s attention to detail extended beyond her moviemaking prowess—and into the beauty realm—we developed a whole new level of respect for the director, which is saying something, considering our esteem was already pretty high. After chatting with The Bling Ring‘s makeup department head, Roz Music, it was revealed that Coppola was so in love with a particular shade of discontinued hot-pink Chanel lipstick that she called her friend in France to track down the last remaining tubes of it to use in the film. She seems to devote the same amount of thought to her personal beauty decisions as well. At the movie’s New York premiere last night, Coppola wore a gorgeous dark coral pout perfecter with an all-white ensemble that made us fall in love with the poppy color all over again. While lighter shades of the melon hue can look chalky, sticking to rich, lustrous options, like MAC’s Sweet & Sour and Sushi Kiss from its new All About Orange collection, are easy summer staples. Thoughts on Sofia’s mouth moment?
It shouldn’t come as too big of a shock that Old Hollywood continues to inspire the red carpets of today; classic glamour, after all, never goes out of style. So we were unsurprised to see the screen-siren triple threat—think: red lips, side parts, and smooth waves—at not one but two star-studded functions last night. Amy Adams sported Votre Vu’s forthcoming French Kiss in Annette, a bright tomato-tinged crimson, to promote Man of Steel at the summer blockbuster’s New York premiere, while Chanel skincare face, Diane Kruger, went for a glossier true scarlet, like the brand’s Rouge Allure in Incandescent, at the Broadcast Television Journalists Association’s Critics’ Choice Television Awards in L.A. Bicoastal beauty at its best. Who do you think is working a better Veronica Lake?
