Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora dropped a Kill Bill-style music video today, but that isn’t the big news here on Beauty Counter. We’re more concerned with this dynamic duo’s hair and makeup moves—like Ora’s sultry, kohl-rimmed eyes and blunt-cut, platinum wig. The Brit’s sooty stare reminded us of the rocker look we saw on the runway at Saint Laurent for Fall 2014. As for Azalea, we appreciated how the rapper took the tone-on-tone trend to an edgy new level, dip-dyeing the bottom of her strands crimson to match her blood-red lips. We can’t say we’re surprised that these kickass blonds in skintight racing suits pulled out all the stops—both are routinely spotted on the red carpet sporting razor-sharp feline flicks, statement pouts, stiletto nails, and signature white-hot hair. While the verdict is still out on how “Black Widow” will fare with music critics, one thing is for certain: Rita and Iggy are a match made in beauty heaven.
Sky Ferreira is no stranger to sparkle. In fact, when I first met the catwalker-turned-singer, she was wearing bedazzled Saint Laurent stockings (the same pair she sported on the way to the hospital after she injured herself onstage in California during Miley Cyrus’ Bangerz tour). But it isn’t just her gams that are getting the glimmer treatment—her makeup artist, Amy Chance, has been sticking to a combo of Make Up For Ever lilac glitter and Rimmel London Lasting Finish Matte by Kate Moss lipstick in 107 for the past week. The cat-eye shape Ferreira is so fond of is reminiscent of the sixties-inspired black wings expertly sketched on lids at Saint Laurent’s Fall 2014 show, while the shimmery aspect might as well have stemmed from the twinkling Mary Janes models wore on their feet. Combine the two ideas together and it’s a match made in makeup heaven.
Not only was the slightly longer sleeve length on Kate Bosworth’s tee (part of her new line for Topshop, launching today) completely perfect, an observation made by Style.com’s in-house T-shirt aficionada and photo editor, but her deep side part was an ideal complement to her casual look. While Bosworth’s dividing line wasn’t clean-cut and perfect—reminding me of the rocker-inspired styles seen at Saint Laurent this season—the feminine curls and pink-stained lips added an element of easy elegance to her half-tucked top and jeans.
The Model: Milla Jovovich
The Moment: Nineties Grunge
The Motivation: If you haven’t already noticed, the nineties are back. From Hedi Slimane’s grunge collection for Saint Laurent to just about everybody else’s obsession with midriff tops, fashion is on repeat. And beauty insiders, for the most part, have taken the same route. On the red carpet and in editorials, there’s a return to the nude face and the no-makeup-makeup look popularized by supes like Linda, Christy, and Naomi. So it’s no surprise we’re slightly obsessed with this Peter Lindbergh-lensed shot of Milla Jovovich. Her clean skin, smudged eyeliner, and slicked-back, slightly mussed-up pompadour are everything we want to embrace this summer.
