Amanda Murphy Goes Two for Two With Vogue Italia


Amanda MurphyAmanda Murphy’s career is going at full throttle thanks to influential supporters Miuccia Prada and Steven Meisel. News broke yesterday that the 26-year-old model—who had a stellar Fall ’13 season—landed her second consecutive Vogue Italia cover lensed by Meisel (he also shot her for Prada’s Fall ’13 campaign, which was no surprise after she bookended the label’s show back in February). Last month, the fresh-faced Chicago native shared the spotlight with veterans including Gisele Bündchen, Natalia Vodianova, Linda Evangelista, Stella Tennant, and Raquel Zimmermann, but this time around, Murphy fronted the glossy solo. For the new issue, the up-and-coming model pulled off slicked-back strands tucked behind her ears, styled by Guido Palau, as well as edgy makeup by Pat McGrath that resembled geometric patches of grease smeared over her eyes like war paint. Murphy has also appeared in recent editorials for Paris Vogue, Interview, and W. All of which is to say that things aren’t about to slow down for her anytime soon.

#DiorRob Goes Viral; Shalimar’s Evolution; The Inevitable Rise of DD Creams; and More…


Dior-Pattinson_sizedAfter months of eager anticipation, an image from Robert Pattinson’s forthcoming Dior Homme Parfum finally leaked over the weekend. The French fashion house released a steamy behind-the-scenes shot of RPatz grinning at a female model while draped over the side of a bathtub, tweeting, “A new story is about to start. #DiorRob.” That’s a hashtag we can get behind.

Guerlain’s Shalimar became an instant classic upon its 1925 debut and still maintains a cult following. Lifestyle Mirror paid tribute to the iconic fragrance by charting its evolution—from its first print advertisement to Jade Jagger’s redesign of the bottle in 2010 and Natalia Vodianova’s recent campaigns.

Catching up on your Instagram and Facebook feeds in bed could be making you fat, according to researchers. Bright, high-contrast mobile screens can disturb circadian rhythms, making it more difficult to fall asleep and raising stress levels that can stoke appetites. The message: “Choose The Tonight Show over Twitter.”

With the rise of now-ubiquitous BB and CC creams, it was only a matter of time until DD (Daily Defense) creams hit the market. The new alphabetic product will reportedly offer increased antiaging properties to reduce fine lines and wrinkles over time—in addition to built-in color correcting, SPF, and skincare benefits.

The Latest Blonde


Since the shows ended in March, Natalia Vodianova has been steadily lightening up, taking her light brown locks a few shades closer towards blond with each passing month. At the Met a few weeks ago, they were a honey gold hue, and last night, at Glamour U.K.’s Women of the Year Awards, they were decidedly flaxen. Also worth noting: Save for a slick of clear gloss, Vodianova is wearing pretty much no makeup here and still looks staggeringly gorgeous—alabaster skin, brushed-up full brows, and all (sigh). Which hair color do you prefer on the supermodel?

Runway To Reality: Anne Hathaway Does Valentino Couture Hair


A matter of hours after Guido Palau debuted “Russian Princess” beaded wire headbands woven through braided chignons at the Valentino Couture show yesterday, Anne Hathaway followed suit at the White Fairy Tale Love Ball last night, hosted by the house and Natalia Vodianova. Opting for a strain of large crystalline flowers rather than the smaller platinum and gold buds Palau strung up into models’ strands, Hathaway fashioned her accessory into a loosely laid coronet that cascaded down the length of her tousled brown locks. One imagines she then danced the night away happily ever after. Which look do you like best?

Alexa Chung’s Dirty Little Secret; Why Showering Is Overrated; And More…


Alexa Chung has revealed her style icons (Graham Coxon, Keith Richards, Julie Christie, and Françoise Hardy), as well as one very naughty beauty secret. “I’m obsessed with moisturizing, but relaxed about everything else—I even leave my makeup on at night,” she has said. “I just always have to be wearing black eyeliner.” Even in a state of slumber, that’s dedication. [Hello]

That’s not this week’s only not-washing news: More and more people, it seems, are defying the “culture of clean” that has mandated daily showers and deodorant use in America for the better part of the last century. And you know what? Your skin, hair, and “personal perfume” could benefit from the negligence. [NYT]

At a recent signing for his new book, Justin Bieber revealed that he a) believes that Jesus died on a cross for his sins, b) wants to be a young dad, c) sees himself making a smooth transition from being a “um, you know, teenage heartthrob to, you know, an adult singer,” and d) thinks his voice is his trademark, not his hair.
