Days after she walked the Moschino catwalk sporting sultry Hollywood waves, Rita Ora revealed an edgy new bob on Instagram, joining the likes of Hilary Rhoda and Taylor Swift. “He is a genius @Chrisappleton for my fresh cut!” she captioned. The British singer’s choppy new ‘do proves that 2014 is, in fact, the Year of the Bob, and the crop is obviously so 2013.
Watch out, Rita. Daniel Radcliffe also debuted a new bob this week. Sadly, his wasn’t by choice. Radcliffe’s locks are actually extensions put in place for his new role in the upcoming Frankenstein film. Said the actor of his longer-length strands: “The amount of work it takes, having to dry it—do anything to it is a f*cking nightmare. I do have a whole new sympathy for women.” May we suggest a Jared Leto-esque man bun. [Elle]
In other hair news, eating more meat can be good for your bones—and your locks. A diet lacking in protein, hairstylist Garren told Allure, can lead to “starving” hair that spindles out and sheds more easily, as protein is an “essential nutrient for healthy hair,” noted dermatologist Francesca Fusco. For vegetarians, Fusco recommends foods like quinoa, spinach, and tofu.
Nonie Creme, the former founding creative director of Butter London, announced that she’s launching a new mass-market beauty line in January of next year dubbed Nonie Creme-Colour Prevails. It will include beauty products across all categories, such as hair (“semi-perm hair dye” she noted on Twitter), nails, and cosmetics. “It’s not a big secret that I cut my teeth backstage, grew up as a fashion kid in London on shoots and shows, and I was fortunate to be adopted early when nails weren’t even a thing,” she told WWD. “I was able to zero in on the fact that someone needed to be there [to give models a manicure]. You can’t have [Mario] Testino shooting a model with dirty, skanky nails.” No, you most certainly cannot.
There was a mash-up of the beauty variety last night at The Box in London. Rita Ora’s look was reminiscent of the soft “Jodie Foster in Taxi Driver” curls that Guido Palau created at Bottega Veneta’s Fall 2013 show and the sculptural, frizzy wigs Luigi Murenu coiffed for Rick Owens’ Spring 2013 collection. Two heads, as they say, are better than one.
Celebs are breaking out the burgundy en masse (à la Helmut Lang Spring 2014). Whether you choose to coordinate it with what you’re wearing (like Kat Dennings and Taylor Swift) or completely contrast a white gown (illustrated by Rita Ora), riding this color wave will put you right on trend.
With winter apparel being unearthed en masse this past weekend, I can’t think of a better way to make the long, dark days ahead a bit less depressing than with a swipe of bright lipstick à la Rita Ora. While most of us will likely be wearing a scarf in lieu of a ruffled dickey, matching your mouth to an accessory—in this case, Ora’s paper poppy broach (worn in the U.K. to commemorate fallen soldiers and support current military efforts)—is a look worth trying. Another beauty cue to take from the British pop tart: Keep the finish matte and the color major.

Although BFFs Rita Ora and Cara Delevingne were said to have split this summer, they were spotted at the golden arches in London in the early hours (3:30 a.m.). Nothing helps you kiss and make up—or rev up for fashion week—like an end-of-the-night excursion to McDonald’s. One big question remains: Did the superstar and supermodel supersize it? [Mirror UK]

It’s not just editors who need care packages filled with Band-Aids, Starbucks cards, and Still Standing Spray for tired feet (yes, this exists, and I did, in fact, receive it)—Space NK teamed up with Next Models to keep the catwalkers looking top-notch for London fashion week. In addition to agency-approved snacks and water, the girls will get a few best-selling beauty goods from the Brit boutique. [Vogue UK]
