Rihanna posted a photo of her hands covered in henna just a few hours ago on Instagram. We saw the star’s semipermanent designs make a brief appearance at Clive Davis’ pre-Grammys party (before she ultimately joined no-show celebs like Kanye West and Miley Cyrus the night of the big event). Between RiRi and Lorde, this Middle Eastern tradition looks like it’s poised to stage a red-carpet comeback (a beauty move we’ve rarely seen since Madonna entered into her “spiritual” phase in the late nineties).
I was hoping this 2013 trend would be put to bed in the New Year, but gilded teeth are still going strong. Super Cara Delevingne sported a gold snarl created by Parisian grillz designer du jour, Dolly Cohen, for a shoot with Lurve magazine. Fans of the former dental technician’s work include the model’s pop star bestie, Rihanna, A$AP Rocky, and fellow catwalker Chanel Iman.
Rihanna lent some hair help to Cara Delevingne on New Year’s Eve by crafting a sleek ponytail before a night out at the 40/40 Club, in New York City. This scene—a girl sitting on a toilet seat while another wields a curling iron or a makeup brush—is a modern Norman Rockwell moment that every American woman has likely experienced at one point or another. Supermodels and superstars, they’re just like us.
There is no question that Instagram has affected how the world shares information—especially when it comes to beauty. From Beyoncé’s pixie to Jennifer Lawrence’s crop, one selfie (and a few snip-snips) can set the world on fire. JLaw told Barbara Walters last night that, after being selected as one of her 10 Most Fascinating People of 2013, “…the weirdest thing about all of this is probably seeing my haircut on the news.” (Oh, the power of social media.) And this week is no exception: Cara Delevingne dropped her YSL ad campaign; Rihanna revealed that a new namesake fragrance could be in the works (and that she’s the new face of Balmain); and Josephine Skriver showed off how she looks in a wig (one of the year’s most beloved accessories outside of Fendi’s Buggies).
