Just in case you’ve forgotten, Martha Stewart wanted to remind you—last night, live from a WWD event, via Twitter—that Marc Jacobs is launching a makeup line with Sephora this fall, and that he “loved his supportive grandmother.” Her feed; her 140 characters. [Glamour]
Katie Holmes’ debut ads as the first-ever global brand ambassador for Bobbi Brown cosmetics are making the rounds this week.

After debuting her brand-new, Miley Cyrus-inspired pixie cut in the winter issue of i-D magazine, Lena Dunham has undergone another makeover for her Entertainment Weekly cover turn.

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?
After an insane amount of hype that started in August when NARS’ unprecedented collaboration with the Andy Warhol Foundation was first announced, the color collection is finally starting to hit stores. And there’s a lot worth looking at, primarily because this is not your average meeting of the minds. Instead of simply producing a range in homage, François Nars’ fan-favorite makeup brand actually worked with Warhol’s longstanding foundation, which protects the pop artist’s wealth of creative property, so that all of the images, quotes, and general visuals used are actual replicas of Warhol’s original work. That said, we imagine most people will be drawn immediately to the Flowers Eyeshadow Palettes that feature the artist’s famous Flowers, 1965 painting in three different shades of embossed pigment as well as Warhol’s indelible words “all is pretty,” which are scrawled onto the mirror; the trio of additional shadows depicting Warhol’s Self-Portrait in three contrasting shades will also presumably be big winners when they launch in November. But we’re putting our money on the Edie Gift Set. In an interesting turn of events, Marc Jacobs’ Spring collection, for which Nars serves face-painting duty, was directly inspired by Warhol’s poor little rich girl. “Everything is a coincidence,” Nars joked backstage of the circumstances that saw him wrapping his work with the Warhol Foundation only to segue into the beauty look for Jacobs’ show. Needless to say, he was well equipped to create a “more updated” take on Sedgewick’s heavily rimmed lids, lots of lashes, and big, bold brows with a clean, flushed complexion and a more pared-down black liner application. Those tools are now readily at your disposal via Nars’ holiday kit, which packs his Pure Matte Lipstick in Film Star, a sixties-era nude pink; Eyeshadow in Edie, a creamy neutral pigment with a hint of shimmer; Blush Duo in Deep Throat/Amour, which has both sheer peach and matte peach-pink options; and the essential Eyeliner Stylo in Carpates, a true black. Remember to mind the “banane” line.

“Sometimes a girl comes in and becomes Marc’s muse,” Guido Palau explained backstage at Marc Jacobs of how he and makeup legend François Nars approached the designer’s Spring beauty look (more on that in a bit). “[This season], a lot of girls are based on Ruby.” That’d be Ruby Jean Wilson, who may have made the best decision of her career when she bleached her brunette hair and chopped it short at the beginning of the summer, thus inadvertently becoming the perfect face of Jacobs’ Edie Sedgwick-inspired collection. “I was bored with [it],” the 19-year-old Scottish stunner said of why she asked ION Studio’s Mauricio Bermudez to take her from chocolate brown to a rooty white platinum, after which Paul Rowland, the indelible Women and Supreme founder who headed to Ford two years ago, “hacked into it.” (Rowland, incidentally, has been responsible for a few of the season’s standout styling sessions so far, including Erin Macdonald’s short undercut and the pageboy bowl cut Athena Wilson debuted on the Marc runway as well.) As for what it feels like to be called Marc Jacobs’ “muse,” Wilson struggled to find the right words. “It’s an honor,” she finally mustered. “Since I started modeling, I’ve always loved [Marc's] shows. His girls have always been something I’ve taken inspiration from.” And so the inspired becomes the inspirer.
