Throwback Thursday: We Love the Nineties


Milla-Jovovich-by-Peter-Lindbergh,-Allure-US-Dec-1996_resizeThrowback Thursday is a regular feature on Beauty Counter in which we pore over the pages of our favorite glossies from decades past in search of a little modern-day makeup and hair inspiration.

The Model: Milla Jovovich

The Moment: Nineties Grunge

The Motivation: If you haven’t already noticed, the nineties are back. From Hedi Slimane’s grunge collection for Saint Laurent to just about everybody else’s obsession with midriff tops, fashion is on repeat. And beauty insiders, for the most part, have taken the same route. On the red carpet and in editorials, there’s a return to the nude face and the no-makeup-makeup look popularized by supes like Linda, Christy, and Naomi. So it’s no surprise we’re slightly obsessed with this Peter Lindbergh-lensed shot of Milla Jovovich. Her clean skin, smudged eyeliner, and slicked-back, slightly mussed-up pompadour are everything we want to embrace this summer.

Alexa Talks Beauty Essentials; Milla Makes the Cut—Again; And More…


Alexa-Chung-Beauty-EssentialsAlexa Chung has a relatively low-key beauty regimen, save for the occasional YSL statement lip and self-inflicted updo. But the British It girl does have one must-have makeup essential: “I always do my signature cat-eye flick and use Eyeko for both liner and mascara.” [Telegraph]

Following her Christiaan-executed side shave, Milla Jovovich is creating a fair bit of beauty buzz again today as she reveals another new short crop. [Instagram]

After causing a shortage on grape-seed oil after naming it as her go-to all-natural moisturizer, Emma Stone is dropping some more DIY beauty knowledge. The Amazing Spider-Man star says baking soda is her exfoliator of choice. [Daily Mail]

Milla For Avon; Magazines Get More “Mansome”; And More…


Avon’s stock may have been recently downgraded to sell, but its celebrity cred is looking up. The direct seller just signed Milla Jovovich as the new face of its City Rush for Her fragrance. [Daily Mail]

Fact: Men are big into products these days, and it’s evident at more than just the beauty counter. Grooming ad sales are up at magazines like Details and Men’s Health, new men’s magazine launches are in the works—including Fairchild Fashion’s recent announcement of the resurrection of M and Men’s Health‘s resurrection of its publication Best Life—and Details has just announced plans to join forces with Space NK on a new retail partnership. Ladies, mind your skincare arsenal. [WWD]

Finally, some answers about Tom Brady’s questionable faux hawk at this year’s Met gala. “To tell you the truth, I was actually shampooing my hair in the shower one day and I thought ‘I might do that. That might be cool,” the New England Patriots quarterback says. “As long as my wife liked it and my mother liked it I’m cool with it.” Fair enough. [Boston Herald]

Milla Jovovich, Blade Runner


Christiaan has something of a trigger-happy reputation. It’s not uncommon for the coiffing establishment’s reigning one-name wonder to break out a pair of shears on set and create a new, avante-garde hairstyle completely off the cuff. He did it back in 1984 when he christened the undercut, and he was up to his old tricks again last night at a Love magazine shoot, where he made Milla Jovovich the latest card-carrying member of the side-shave brigade. Alice Dellal, eat your heart out. Thoughts on the look?

Milla Gives Cannes Some Lip


Milla Jovovich and her amfAR Versace gown got prime placement in our “Best of Cannes” slideshow, but her bold lip color choices over the past week deserve a shout-out, too. The L’Oréal spokesmodel ventured into both deep scarlet and light fuchsia territory, with her eyes heavily lined in black pigment and her chin-grazing bob fashioned into a charming seventies-era side-sweep. We’re partial to Milla in crimson, but let us know below if you’d like to mount a case for pink.
