Following the successful line of nail appliqués Ruffian designers Brian Wolk and Claude Morais launched with MAC Cosmetics two years ago, the duo has now teamed up with Birchbox on a three-piece polish range inspired by their forthcoming Spring line. The color palette is still TBD, as Birchbox’s Facebook fans will be left with the task of voting on five possible shades. The winning lacquers will then be revealed in September and featured at Ruffian’s Spring 2014 show. [WWD]

Don’t buy perfume based on the advertising, says Hermès in-house perfumer Jean-Claude Ellena. “Ask for a sample and put it on your skin. If you like it on your skin, you can buy. No rush, take the time, because perfume is like a love affair. It’s not good to rush a love affair.” [The Cut]

Severe brunette dye jobs may be the big story on the Fall runways, but a band of starlets are singing a different, brighter tune and going blonde. Recall Natalie Portman’s unexpected color change at the Emmy Awards, and the peroxide pixie look Elisabeth Moss debuted at the New York premiere of For a Good Time, Call…. Emily Blunt is the latest actress to lighten up, sporting fresh honey highlights at last night’s Gotham Awards. No stranger to a dye job, Mrs. John Krasinski has been all over the color continuum this year. She went blonde last February for her role in Looper, before returning to her naturally darker shade over the summer, then presumably underwent this makeover for her latest film, All You Need Is Kill, which is currently shooting in London. Do you prefer a raven- or flaxen-haired Blunt? Let us know below.
Last night’s Emmy Awards were slated to be a big beauty bonanza as the fashion darlings of television—from Downton Abbey‘s Michelle Dockery and Mad Men‘s January Jones to Game of Thrones‘ Emilia Clarke—descended upon L.A. for a night of red-carpet walking and statuette cradling. The E! network even set up a “mani cam” to carefully inspect starlets’ individual polish preferences. But something happened on Saturday night that upstaged even the best beauty moments from the annual event: Natalie Portman went blonde. “I did it just a couple of days ago,” the Black Swan star told The Hollywood Reporter at the premiere of her husband Benjamin Millepied’s new L.A. Dance Project at the Walt Disney Concert Hall. The color change is apparently for a role, although Portman was staying mum on any more details. There was one thing she happily shared, though, shouting out celebrity colorist Tracey Cunningham, who is responsible for the drastic dye job. Portman apparently visited Cunningham, who also notably turned Emma Stone a shade of honey gold, at Salon Benjamin in West Hollywood while her new salon, Meche, is under construction. Thoughts on Portman’s lighter look?
