An “Edwardian-themed” Downton Abbey makeup collection will be released on October 12, just in time for season four. The creams, candles, and makeup products will sell exclusively at London’s Marks & Spencer. Packaging is stamped with the Downton Arms, images of the Abbey, and quotes from the series.
Heidi Klum’s new “Fashion Reigns” ad campaign for Project Runway has been banned in L.A. The billboard depicts Klum and Tim Gunn dressed as royalty, standing over a group of naked, writhing models. The City of Angels has asked that a new version be produced with models wearing underwear. Interestingly enough, New York has not found a problem with the nude photos.
Beyoncé is nearly naked herself, and covered in metallic glitter on the new issue of Flaunt. Bow Down, indeed.
Project Runway winner Christian Siriano’s limited-edition makeup collection for Victoria’s Secret debuts this week. To celebrate the momentous occasion, the design phenom and former makeup artist will be meeting and greeting fans while his artistry team performs personalized free makeovers. Call (866) 842-8674 to book your appointment.
When: Saturday, August 15, 12 to 3 p.m.
Where: Victoria’s Secret at Herald Square, 1328 Broadway, at 34th Street, NYC
Why: Victoria’s Secret is also celebrating the launch of VS Makeup, the evolution of its existing Very Sexy Makeup line, and purchasing two or more items from the collection scores you a signature cosmetic case with four deluxe fragrance samples (the Airbrush FX Face Primer is a personal fave). And because watching Siriano try to come up with new ways to use the term “tranny” as an adjective never gets old.
Before he made the word fierce part of the country’s vernacular during his winning season on Project Runway, Christian Siriano was a makeup artist. True story. He worked the counter at Bloomingdale’s and even had a brief stint at Sephora before trading in his kabuki brush and face palettes for straight pins and presumably a lot more attitude. In an effort to return to his roots—and complement his most recent collection—the asymmetrical-haired designer has partnered with Victoria’s Secret to produce a line of limited-edition fall makeup. His first official foray into beauty includes a black kajal liner, three different neutral lip glosses, a bronzer/highlighter trio, and five eye shadow solos, including a gold-flecked version of VS Makeup’s best-selling black pigment, aptly named Gilded Fierce. After getting a sneak peak during an editor’s preview last night, we’re pretty sure you’re gonna want to get in on these when they come out at the end of the summer: They’re runway-ready (Alessandra Ambrosia and Adriana Lima were on hand to model the goods) and completely budget-friendly, ranging from $12 to $24 a piece. And just like that, Siriano is poised to endear himself to style-savvy Americans one more time.
