Despite a previous penchant for monthly color changes, Rihanna seems to be sticking to the clown-wig red locks she switched to this June. But just because the color is here to stay doesn’t mean that she’s limited herself to one style. We’ve seen the bowl cut-with-fade, the long wavy weave, the flower-embellished updo, and even the beehive, which made its debut at the MTV Europe Music Awards this weekend. Last night, in a surprising cameo on the Italian version of the singing competition X Factor—what is Ri-Ri doing on reality television, in Italy, no less?—she broke out the braid, and not just any braid, but the fishtail braid. Thoughts on the style—and her decision to stay with the crimson strands?
Rihanna has spoken: “Redheads have the most fun.” The pop superstar has reported that she might cut her fire-engine red locks soon, but the hue is here to stay for a while. Color us chagrined. [MTV UK]
First Burberry, now L’Oreal. Onetime Christopher Bailey muse Rachel Weisz has just inked a deal to become the French beauty giant’s worldwide face for all brands—except in the U.S., that is. What would Andie MacDowell do with all the free time? [WWD]
Have you ever thought that Jared Leto looks like a girl with drawn-on stubble? No? Well, this cosplay (costume play) video out of Russia will make you reconsider. [Fashionista]
iPhone apps know no bounds. First came FatBooth, and now we give you DragMe, an application that turns one and all into a drag queen with “splendid” wigs, “glorious” makeup, “engaging” eyebrows, and “jaunty” head wraps—all with one simple click of your iPhone camera. Imagine the possibilities! [App Modo]
For those of you clicking through the Hakaan show this morning only to discover a Rihanna look-alike pop out at you in slide 7, let us explain: No, the “Umbrella” singer was not a backstage inspiration, and no, that is not a wig styled to mimic the Barbados beauty’s recent transition to fire-engine red locks. That is, however, model Milica Blagojevic’s real hair, dyed on site by colorist Christophe Robin, who also tinted Shirley Mallmann’s blond tresses a shade of lilac gray (that is not, however, a real nasal bridge piercing that Mallmann and the rest of her catwalking cohorts were spotted with on the runway). Robin had the distinguished task of taking both models back to their original colors post-show, so look out for Blagojevic as a brunette at Cacharel on Saturday.
It’s been a busy month here on the blog. With a whole new crop of A-listers signing beauty contracts, pop stars dyeing and straightening their hair, and one very prominent face painter dabbling in fashion to write about, we barely had time to do our own makeup. In case you missed them, we’ve compiled a top ten list of June’s most important posts. Read up.
First Julia Roberts caved, then Jennifer Aniston, and now Natalie Portman has succumbed to the lure of the beauty biz. Portman just accepted a new role as the face of Parfums Christian Dior. It’s the first time the actress has represented a fragrance and cosmetics brand, and begs the question: Who’s next? [WWD]
In the first long-term study measuring the speed of wrinkle development, researchers found that women with well-hydrated skin develop persistent wrinkles less quickly than those with dry skin. If you’re not already on the moisturizer tip, the time to start slathering is now. [Daily Mail]
Rihanna may be grabbing headlines this morning with her new fire-engine red ‘do, but she’s getting some competition from Katy Perry, who chose cobalt blue hair for her performance at the MTV Movie Awards last night. Add that to Lady Gaga’s eggyolk yellow look of earlier this Spring, and it would appear as though the pop star community is having a primary-color moment. [Fab Sugar]
White hair is also receiving its fair share of attention around the blogosphere today. Ipilimumab, a new experimental melanoma drug, reportedly fights the deadly form of skin cancer by boosting the body’s immune system. Silver-y strands are an indication that it’s working. [msnbc]
