“I’ve never seen someone travel with so much in my life,” model Naomi Campbell told WSJ. Magazine of Pat McGrath’s makeup cache. “And that says something, coming from me.” But the face painter made a case for not packing light: “When you walk into a room and there are racks and racks of beautiful clothes, do you really want to ruin it all with a bad lipstick?” she said. Point taken. [WSJ. Magazine]
The body part Behati Prinsloo won’t be baring at this year’s Victoria’s Secret fashion show? Her arms. A British military-style jacket will keep her guns under cover. [Elle.com]
L’Oréal Paris has certainly scooped up a lot of star power in the past few weeks (signing both Blake Lively and Lara Stone as spokeswomen for the brand). But according to recent reports, Adele won’t be belting out “Because you’re worth it” anytime soon. Not even for 12 million pounds. [Refinery29]
Two Jennifers have recently made the chop—but not out of desire for kicky new cuts. For Jennifer Aniston, it was a Brazilian blow-out gone terribly wrong that did her in, but Jennifer Lawrence has Catching Fire director Francis Lawrence to blame. Constant hair-dyeing, in the name of Katniss, left this tribute’s long strands fried and a pixie in their place. [New York]
While there were plenty of sleek chignons (Dior) and glossy blow-outs (Giambattista Valli, as well as Naomi Campbell’s Atelier Versace cameo) at the recent Couture shows, rockabilly pompadours made a bigger punch. Backstage before Karl Lagerfeld’s spectacle at the Grand Palais, hairstylist Sam McKnight explained that he used “quite a lot” of hair spray to mold the models’ “Grace Jones flattops,” which were echoed, albeit in a softer way, later that day at Bouchra Jarrar. We noticed similarly teased and slicked-back looks—seen on models Katlin Aas and Anne Verhallen—in the Fall ’13 Miu Miu campaign released earlier this week.

Never mind the coterie of A-listers that have gone red recently. Rachel McAdams, Megan Fox, and Scarlett Johansson’s collective auburn dye jobs seem like old news compared to Naomi Campbell’s return to blonde. The nineties supe with the extra-long, chocolaty locks—which are often accessorized with now-you-see-them, now-you-don’t bangs—dons a head full of gold-tinged strands on the cover of the thirty-eighth-anniversary, May issue of Vogue Brazil, courtesy of Oribe with styling by Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele. But we’ll remind you that The Face coach is plenty familiar with flaxen. Some spur-of-the-moment archival-image research has made it clear that not only did Naomi rock Beyoncé-caliber gilded extensions for much of the early nineties, she’s as super today as she was then. Don’t you think?
Between the over-the-top nail designs, flashy grills, and patriotic face art, we thought Olympians had exhausted every personal expression possibility. But wait, we were wrong. A compilation of pictures shows that neon-colored Kinesio tape, worn by volleyball players, divers, gymnasts, and runners alike, is the latest way to accessorize those medal-winning, athletic bods.

Recent pictures of Naomi Campbell on vacation in Ibiza reveal that the 42-year-old supermodel may be suffering from traction alopecia, which is characterized by thinning tresses and a receding hairline, and commonly caused by reliance on hair extensions and weaves. Campbell’s body looks bangin’ as usual, but our advice is, take it easy on the tresses for now, Naomi. [Daily Mail]
In the past few days, 12-year-old Talia Joy Castellano, who just so happens to have neuroblastoma and leukemia, has gotten attention for her charming (and pretty darn informative) beauty blog called Make-upIsMyWig, which features instructive videos that break down creating a smoky eye or a statement red lip. Talia isn’t letting the cancer keep her down and offers inspiration to anyone looking to try out a new makeup look. [Grazia Daily]
