When Makeup Imitates Art


Nobody loves a theme party quite like the fashion set, which is why tastemakers and Oscar Award-winning actresses alike turned out in full force for Giancarlo Giammetti’s recent Pop Art party at his London home, which was shot by Vanity Fair. We were particularly impressed with Anne Hathaway’s and Margherita Missoni’s interpretations of the Warholian movement, which included some very inventive face-painting skills. Who do you think interpreted the silk-screened effect better?

The Bob: It’s Baaaaack


The “short undercut” got some early love from us this season as the shaved underneath, longer-on-top style has been embraced by more than few models in New York. But the bob—that classic chin-grazing crop that can connote everything from a life change to a hair-trend sea change, just got two major endorsements. At last night’s well-attended, black-tie gala to fête Carine Roitfeld’s independent magazine venture, CR, a newly single Karen Elson and a newly married Margherita Missoni showed up sporting freshly shorn strands. Nothing like a transformative haircut to start a different chapter. Thoughts on their respective mane makeovers?

Crown Heights


You could blame it on the summer solstice, but we’re pretty sure Dolce & Gabbana’s bedazzled floral crowns from Fall are behind the recent spike in coronet adornment. Kirsten Dunst sported one in Cannes, Keira Knightley recently followed suit at the premiere of her new movie Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, and this weekend saw a slew of imitators. Dorothea Barth Jorgensen wore a leafy green incarnation at the model fest that was GrandLife and INGA’s Midsommarfest in New York, Vivienne Westwood crowned a handful of male models at her menswear presentation in Milan, and Margherita Missoni gave her bridesmaids—including one Tatiana Santo Domingo—rings of daisies to place on their heads as they walked down the aisle at her wedding to Eugenio Amos in Brunello, Italy. And so we put it to you, dear readers: Who wore it best?

Confronting The Red Army


Full disclosure: We are among the bandwagoneers to embrace the red lip over the past few years as it has steadily made a mainstream comeback. No more sheer gloss for us, thanks. When it comes to important public appearances, we see red—the more opaque and brighter the better. But as the old standby continues to regain popular favor, we’re beginning to wonder if it’s less statement-making when everyone at your party also has it painted on. Case in point: At amfAR’s inaugural Milan fashion week event last night, we spotted at least four crimson pouts, in glossy and matte incarnations and in a shade range that included Dita Von Teese’s pink-red and Linda Evangelista’s orange-tinged hue. Should we start embracing the rainbow of lip offerings that have made repeat appearances on the runway, or can red really be universal and totally unique at the same time?
