Brigitte Bardot isn’t just the reigning example of Riviera chic, but she also exemplifies the power of the headband. Countless times she was captured wearing a wide, black version stretched over her ears, with her signature blond bump fluffed up in back. And it appears that another French actress is taking her red-carpet cues from the icon—albeit as a brunette. Marion Cotillard kept the ocean breezes at bay during daylight hours with a gauzy strip of nude nylon (reminiscent of the tone-on-tone bands worn at Marc Jacobs Fall 2014 show), swapping it out for a ring of hair (quite possibly an extension) for the evening premiere of L’Homme Qu’On Aimait Trop. To replicate her afternoon accessory, I suggest trying a little trick I picked up on the sidelines of the soccer field (a place I obviously scored more beauty tips than goals): Use athletic prewrap—a clingy foam that stretches easily around the head—in a natural hue to create a headband, tying it off underneath a side-swung ponytail. At $3 a roll, copying a look from Cannes never came so cheap.
Marion Cotillard brought “operatic elegance” to the red carpet last night for Elle magazine’s 20th Annual Women in Hollywood event. She complemented her Dior dress with hair reminiscent of the ear-covering, low ponytails seen at Valentino. While Cotillard opted for a knot in the back (similar to styles seen in Renaissance portraiture), she nonetheless looked like the breathtaking-but-austere beauties that made their way down the runway.
Marion Cotillard has never been one to shy away from experimentation when it comes to beauty. The Rust and Bone star has worked a texturized faux bob and spider lashes on the red carpet with aplomb, even going as far as to match an icy blue manicure and pedicure to a Dior Couture gown. Today, at the film’s Tokyo premiere, the actress revealed her latest coup: a short, choppy fringe that adds a very chic, very French touch of structure to her razor-cut bob. Thoughts on Cotillard’s bangin’ new ’do?
They say the Screen Actors Guild Awards often help clarify the Oscar picture, as Hollywood’s best and brightest are judged by a panel of their peers. If that’s the case, then February 24 should be a big night for Daniel Day-Lewis, Jennifer Lawrence, Argo, and strapless floor-length gowns. On the beauty front, the show also seemed to indicate an uptick in side-parted glam waves, neutral lips, and sultry smoky eyes, although there were a few surprises to speak of. Below, we’ve outlined our favorite hair and makeup moments from last night’s festivities and made things a little interesting with some friendly competition. Who do you think won best in beauty?
Statement Lips: January Jones vs. Claire Danes
And the Actor goes to…Claire Danes
January Jones gets points for the Bowie-caliber pompadour that she paired with her precisely lined crimson mouth, but Claire Danes wins this category with a completely out-of-the-box plum-stained pout that bordered on chocolate brown courtesy of a layering effort of Laura Mercier Lip Pencils in Coffee Bean and Deep Wine. Fall’s embrace of the mulberry mouth may be losing steam, but don’t be surprised if Danes’ take on the color inspires a whole new crop of followers.
A Cut Above: Freida Pinto vs. Marion Cotillard
And the Actor goes to…Marion Cotillard
Short cuts have been the big story on the runway and red carpet of late, and the SAGs had a few moments of shear genius to speak of, right on cue. Freida Pinto showed off the beautiful cowl-neck of her lilac Roland Mouret gown with a rolled-under bob that we actually had to do a double take to determine if it was faux or real. There was no such confusion with Marion Cotillard’s freshly chopped locks, however. Worn with a deep side part and featuring slightly asymmetrical front panels, Cotillard’s cut wasn’t just the best short story of the night, it was one of its finest beauty moments, period.

Speaking of surprising new scent categories, Stella McCartney would like to bottle the olfactory qualities of a barnyard. The designer, who clearly loves the smell of lily of the valley, which is the top note of her L.I.L.Y scent and its new Absolute, lists her other favorite aromas as the scent of her children’s breath and horses. “My friend and I always joke that one day we’ll launch a horse fragrance—obviously, we’d be the only ones who would buy it,” says McCartney. We’re not so sure about that; brand loyalty can be a funny thing. [InStyle U.K.]
