Hannah Bronfman and business partner Annie Evans already developed an app (in conjunction with Peter Hananel) dubbed Beautified to help the time-pressed book same-day services (like a pedicure, massage, blow-out, or Brazilian) at “influencer- and editor-approved” salons and spas. In other words, it’s like Open Table for perpetual primping procrastinators like myself. Their latest project, however, is less digitally dependent and more down to earth. Partnering with Net-a-Porter, the cofounders created a TSA-friendly kit complete with their all-natural beauty favorites. Included in the custom canvas pouch: a Beautified VIP card (i.e., $25 off your next service booked through the app); Ilia Multistick in Sway (a bronzy hue); Rahua Volume Spray; Tata Harper Body Lotion and Body Oil; Joya Composition No. 1 roll-on perfume; LAFCO hand lotion; and RGB nail polish (in an exclusive mauve shade called Beautified), cuticle oil, and remover pad.
When asked why the duo went the natural route for their first tangible collaboration, Bronfman said, “Our friends are starting to have babies, and when you become pregnant, I think that’s when women really start to think about the products they’re putting on their bodies. So I think a lot of our friends have influenced us.” And for those who are less concerned about taking a holistic approach and just want to look radiant and frizz-free, Bronfman assured me that “everything is going to be especially great for the beach.” It’s a good thing, seeing as the NYC-based DJ and girl-about-town is escaping to Muskoka (a lake town in rural Canada) and possibly taking a side trip to Mykonos this summer. For those of us who are visiting far less glamorous locales this holiday weekend (like a wedding in Portland…I’m not bitter about missing prime BBQ time or anything), consider this your beauty retreat in a bag.

Post-fashion month, hair pro Sam McKnight has been uploading more Instagram pics of his backyard oasis in London than backstage beauty moments. It’s a place he often finds inspiration, particularly for his new collection of hair accessories with Vicki Sarge, landing exclusively on Net-a-Porter this spring. “They’re based on dying flowers in my garden,” he told me in Paris, flipping through photos of headbands, clips, and hair elastics on his iPhone. McKnight adorned ponytails with camellia flowers at Chanel, but I myself can’t wait to re-create the look with one of these plastic-and-crystal blooms once this cold front finally moves on.
Marilyn Monroe on a Scent That Never Loses Its Sex Appeal; When It Comes to Miley, We Called It; Double Your Fragrance Fun With the Olsen’s Latest Launch; and More-------
Chanel released its new ad for No. 5 (dropping November 11) and the recording the house dug up in Marilyn Monroe’s archives. Makes us want to swap out our oversize sleep shirts for the far sexier fragrance.
Not to brag or anything, but we figured out Miley Cyrus’ Lil’ Kim Halloween costume long before she debuted it on Instagram. Perhaps we should have gone as Long Island medium Theresa Caputo last night…
Two is often better than one—especially when an Olsen is involved. Mary-Kate and Ashley’s latest endeavor: two Elizabeth and James fragrances dubbed Nirvana Black and White launching in January at Sephora.
Those monthly beauty-box subscriptions filled with sample-size products often leave much to be desired, but the latest Glossybox by Net-a-Porter (available November 4) is seriously impressive. A full-size, bullet-shaped Ellis Faas Mascara, RGB Cuticle Oil, and Kevyn Aucoin eye shadow duo are included, along with trial tubes and cans from luxe brands like Natura Bissé, Klorane, and Philip B.
Makeup artist extraordinaire François Nars is releasing a book published by Rizzoli—Faery Lands: Tahiti—filled with sepia-toned imagery from his island (yes, all his), Motu Tané, off the coast of Bora Bora. It hits the shelves of NARS boutiques and bookstores mid-November.
When they talk about the Axe effect, we don’t think the brand had asphyxiation by body spray in mind. After being spritzed in a sixth-grade Brooklyn classroom, eight children were sent to the hospital. Unlike the commercials, no bodacious models in bikinis appeared. We can only imagine the disappointment of those 12-year-old boys. [Time]
Being as fabulous as Gwyneth Paltrow is a twenty-four-hour-a-day kind of job—and now there’s a perfume duo to span the entirety of it. Paltrow, who is the spokesperson for Hugo Boss’ Boss Nuit Pour Femme fragrance, will also serve face time for its new Boss Jour Pour Femme. [WWD]
We’ve been talking about the men’s beauty boom for quite some time on this blog, and now it’s been all but confirmed with this development: Amazon is launching an upmarket online men’s grooming boutique. [WWD]

Net-a-Porter’s new beauty e-commerce site is racking up the gets. Last week it debuted an exclusive partnership with Miranda Kerr’s KORA Organics, and today it launched Oscar de la Renta’s coveted line of nail lacquers. [Net-a-Porter]
Two years ago, when Miranda Kerr was quoted saying that she “will not go a day without coconut oil,” pointing out that she typically ingests about four tablespoons of the essential fatty acid-rich elixir a day, sales of the stuff spiked. That’s just a small window into how influential the Victoria’s Secret model has become on matters of health and wellness. An avid yoga practitioner and a fan of eating raw and organic, Kerr caught the attention of the beauty world when she launched her own all-natural skincare line, KORA Organics—a twenty-one-piece lineup of face and body essentials—that is as eco-luxe as it gets. “The range is exactly what I was looking for myself but was unable to find,” says Kerr. “I receive daily testimonies from customers all over the world who have firsthand seen the benefits of using KORA,” she insists—although getting a steady supply of the natural-ingredient-packed range is easier said than done if you live outside of Australia.
But that’s all about to change. This week, Kerr has announced an exclusive partnership with Net-a-Porter, whose newly launched beauty section will now stock select KORA items for a broader, American and European audience. “I personally love to shop at Net-a-Porter. It’s an easy, luxurious experience,” Kerr admits, adding that her Revitalizing Body Pack is a great place to start if you’re new to the line. “It includes my essentials for radiant, glowing skin for your body: Exfoliating Cream, Energizing Citrus Mist, Enriched Body Lotion, and Luxurious Rosehip Body Oil. [The oil] is one of my all-time favorite products.”
As for Kerr’s other tips for maintaining an angelic body—and lifestyle—she’s all about balance. “I live by the 80/20 rule. Moderation is key and essential. I try my best to fill my body with healthy organic food when I can, but enjoy a little indulgence every now and then! I believe if we choose to fill our bodies with healthy food, our minds with healthy thoughts, and nurture our spirit with rituals we enjoy, it can lead to a solid foundation of happiness.” Noted.
