Celebrity colorist Tracey Cunningham told us back in December that she thought we’d be seeing an unusual amount of blonde hair transformations as winter trudged on, and so far, she’s been right on the money. After A-listers like Natalie Portman and Emily Blunt went flaxen for roles, the Russian street-style set promptly followed suit, debuting icy platinum strands at the couture shows. But we never thought we’d see the day that Leigh Lezark left the dark side. The Misshapes DJ and longtime Chanel muse’s angular raven bob was part of an enduring mystique that has long captivated the fashion industry. At last night’s Shopbop and Mugler event in New York celebrating Nicola Formichetti’s exclusive Muglerette graffiti bag, though, Lezark officially went back to her honey-gold roots (she’s a natural blonde). That porcelain skin and those steely camera gazes? Still perfectly intact. Thoughts on her drastic dye job?
The latest face of Dermablend, the L’Oréal-owned line of complexion enhancers with incredible coverage, is Rick Genest—better known as the Nicola Formichetti muse Zombie Boy. The heavily inked Genest refers to his tattoos as “[his] project,” which isn’t quite completed. “I’ve got a couple of blank spots,” he says. “It develops, you know, with time.” As far as using the product he’s now promoting, the Canadian-born artist admits that he doesn’t really wear concealer, “except in the ads, and some fashion shows.” [WWD]
Ever wonder how the Duchess of Cambridge’s hair looks so perfectly bouncy and straight, no matter where she’s being photographed? The answer is regular blow-outs—three of them a week. But in an interesting turn of events, she still insists on visiting London’s Richard Ward salon for the service, rather than have a stylist come to her. You can take the girl out of Bucklebury… [Us]

“I’ve already got my horns fitted. My kids are very happy,” says Angelina Jolie as the first images of her as Maleficent in the remake of Sleeping Beauty surface online. Crazy contacts, deep contours, and a bright red lip are also on the agenda. [EW]
We’re not going to pretend that we had any serious plans to go see Pixar’s new movie Brave, but this detail may have changed our mind: the lead character, Merida, a young red-headed Scottish lass, boasts hair made up of 1,500 individually sculpted curves, distinct points in a three-dimensional space, which are programmed to bounce and interact in relation to one another via a new software system. “Another software program was created to make the hair react more realistically to the character’s movements and surroundings,” according to Pixar. And the intrigue mounts. [WSJ]
Remember last month when we spotlighted Kristina Salinovic‘s super-sweet fade and pointed out that we thought it might be contributing to her stellar season so far? Well, it seems as though Nicola Formichetti feels similarly. Not only did the Mugler designer have the Croatian stunner open his highly anticipated Fall women’s show—his first for the house—he seems to have instructed coiffing star Sam McKnight to mimic the front of her now statement, side-parted crop on the 20 girls that came out behind her. Both black and blond varieties made cameos, calling to mind Salinovic’s recent appearance in Love‘s androgyny issue, in which she sports a platinum streak down her otherwise raven-hued locks. As for the rest of the models, they received either bleached, gelled-up fan shapes protruding above their ears or long, middle-parted bangs left out and dangling loose below the chin. All 35 of them were given long, mid-back grazing ponytails as well, except, of course, for one lone catwalker. Lady Gaga got two ponytails worn as pigtails, which the she whipped back and forth with a bravado possessed by her alone.
Minx has been grabbing headlines left and right in recent weeks. In addition to securing a U.S. patent on its unique method for applying non-liquid graphic films to nails (imitators, beware) and introducing a new collaboration series with super-manicurists like Lisa Logan (Beyoncé, Mary J. Blige, and Queen Latifah) and Marian Newman (Givenchy, Vivienne Westwood, and Valentino), the brand has been killing it backstage at shows like Dennis Basso in New York and David Koma in London. And its newfound role as newsmaker doesn’t look to be losing steam anytime soon. Style.com has just learned that Minx co-founders Janice Jordan and Dawn Lynch-Goodwin will be in full force at Gareth Pugh, at Thierry Mugler for Nicola Formichetti’s first womenswear collection for the house, and at Alexander McQueen—where, lest we remind you, the duo premiered one of Spring’s best manis: a copper patterned tip layered over a gold base that was inspired by look 26 from Sarah Burton’s runway debut. What will they come up with next? You’ll find out next week. (We know, we’re excited too.)

New ads for YSL’s Belle d’Opium featuring French actress Mélanie Thierry have been banned in the U.K. over claims that the actress simulates drug use in the TV spot. YSL Beauté claims the commercial was not intended to make any reference to drug culture, but with the tagline “I am your addiction,” it’s a bit of a hard sell. [Telegraph]
