Breaking Out the Big Guns (and Not Much Else), Backstage at Balmain


karlie-kloss“The girls are booked for who they are, so it’s not about stamping a look on them,” explained hair pro Sam McKnight. When you have models like Angela Lindvall, Joan Smalls, Karlie Kloss, Anja Rubik, Jourdan Dunn, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley all in one room, do you even need hair and makeup? Add a swipe of lipstick and the Hôtel de Ville might just spontaneously combust from the overwhelming amount of beauty. Nevertheless, a little foundation, concealer, and brow powder never hurt anyone. And that’s about all maquillage master Tom Pecheux used backstage to create the “safari goddess” who would wear Olivier Rousteing’s high-octane clothes through the jungle. The only alteration he made was paling out the skin with a lighter shade of base. “It’s still the minimum of what you can do in terms of makeup, but it’s much more than last season,” Pecheux quipped.

An “unbrushed, lazy ponytail with a structured front,” was how McKnight summed up the strict center parts and textured tails that showed off the collared necklaces and door-knocker earrings created by the designer. To coax out natural wave, he spritzed strands with a combination of water and Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray after tying off the length with a string of elastic. As for who, of all the girls, has the “ideal” hair: Huntington-Whiteley, of course. Sigh. As if that face and body weren’t enough.

Red Coat


rosie-huntington-bfa-awardsKeeping in step with another supermodel last night (Kate Moss), Rosie Huntington-Whiteley arrived at the British Fashion Awards sporting a lush, ruby colored pout. What set her look apart, however, is how her velvet, matte pout juxtaposed her glossy, slicked-back strands (reminiscent of the hair and lip combo seen at Prabal Gurung for Spring 2014). Two finishes, it seems, are twice as nice.

Kate Keeps It In The Family; Rosie Huntington-Whiteley Considers Entering The Beauty Sphere; And More


The Duke And Duchess Of Cambridge Attend The Tusk Conservation AwardsThe Duchess of Cambridge is leaving her blow-out to Joh Bailey, the same hairstylist employed by the late Princess Diana, for her upcoming Australian tour. Looks like mother-in-law knows best. [The Cut]

Another royal, the Queen Mother, stayed up past her bedtime last night—she was spotted leaving dinner with Prince Philip at the “outrageous” hour of 10:40 p.m. The Daily Mail commented on how “fresh-faced” and “radiant” the great-great-grandmother looked this morning at the anniversary celebration of the National Theatre. We want to know her secrets.

Fellow Brit Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is bringing sexy back to beauty…maybe. She told British Vogue to “watch this space” when asked if she’d be riding the coattails of her successful line of lingerie at Marks & Spencer with a range of cosmetics.

And in American news, blow-outs have been deemed addictive. And if you’re a perfectionist, claims Sudeepta Varma, MD, a psychiatrist and clinical professor of psychiatry at NYU’s Langone Medical Center, this hair habit “might be a natural extension.” A word of advice: Don’t let the bounce go to your head…or your wallet.

For Abs Like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s, Try Bronzing Powder


Rosie Huntington-WhiteleyWe started writing about crop tops two Septembers ago, when they began popping up at the Spring 2012 collections. It’s taken a while, but the look has officially gone mainstream. Last night, ModelCo ambassador Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s famous abs made an appearance at the makeup brand’s launch party. She wore Calvin Klein Collection, for the record. Now that the weather is on our side—it’s 86 but feels like 92 degrees here in New York today—we’re tempted to try the trend ourselves. Compared to Rosie, though, we’re what you might call six-pack-challenged. So before we whip out the Calvin, we’ll be dipping into our makeup bag for a little extra definition. An editor friend recommends this two-step process: First, even out the skin tone on your stomach with foundation (try MAC Face and Body Foundation). Next, highlight your muscles’ natural contour lines with a matte bronzing powder (such as Lancôme’s Long Lasting Bronzing Powder). “If you were doing your face,” she says, “you’d finish with a shimmery highlighter on the high points, but for abs, I think shimmer would look a little ‘exotic body dancer,’ so I’d skip that step.” We promise to report back on Project Midriff before the end of the summer.

Gwyneth Says No To Botox, Yes To Thermage; Chanel No. 5: The Museum Exhibit; And More…


As Gwyneth Paltrow’s whirlwind book tour continues, the health and wellness fiend is dishing out beauty tips, too. “I’ve probably tried everything,” she says of beauty procedures, although she won’t be getting Botox again anytime soon. “I looked like Joan Rivers!” she recalls of a negative experience with the popular injections. Paltrow is more likely to book Thermage laser treatments. “It’s quite painful…but I would do it again, because I feel like it took five years off my face.” [Glamour]

Chanel is currently prepping a new exhibit at Paris’ Palais de Tokyo, which will open May 5 and explore the enduring cultural legacy of Chanel No. 5, which launched 92 years ago. [Vanity Fair]

Rihanna is sporting a glossy side shave—again—these days for her Diamonds world tour. The style is due to her longtime hairdresser, Yusef Williams, and some deep conditioning treatments. “I really like Paul Labrecque Repair Conditioner and Organic Root Stimulator Olive Oil,” says Williams. [THR]

Finally, Rachel McAdams reveals the reason behind her new auburn dye job. “My mother is a redhead, so I thought maybe I could pull it off,” she explains. [People]
