Later this week, we’ll launch our January installment of The Look, a beauty feature in which we flesh out a trend that we’ve deemed worthy of the spotlight. This time around, curls take the stage. Not since Andie MacDowell’s late-eighties heyday—remember Sex, Lies, and Videotape?—have we seen hair this big and bouncy. Call it the trickle-up effect of the fashion world’s embrace of the era, but curly hair is popping up on the runway, on the red carpet, and in an increasingly large number of editorial spreads—take, for instance, Numéro magazine’s “Magie noire” story featuring a barely recognizable Jessica Stam with a frizzy coif courtesy of hairstylist Peter Gray. Long overdue, we say. Ladies, to your diffusers! Log on this Friday for more on the trend.
As mentioned on a few different occasions prior to this post, purple is at the top of the It colors list this season, frequently showing up on eyes and nails—typically in its metallic amethyst incarnation—at select events and in even more select glossies. But the November issue of Numéro is the first time that I’ve seen the color in such opacity on lips—outside of those Tim Walker Juicy Couture ads with Lisa Cant and the multicolored surfboards, that is. Makeup artist Lloyd Simmons wasn’t playing around when he whipped up this shade of blue-violet. The color is so, well, vivid, that I’m currently looking at Ali Stephens’ furrowed brow and staring back at her with the same expression, having trouble formulating an opinion as to whether the hue is exceptional or off-putting. Either way, I am, shall we say, taken with it. You?
