After announcing its new blog-style Web platform at the launch of its new Signorina fragrance last week, Salvatore Ferragamo’s Girls About Town Web site is live with a Tumblr feed for its brand ambassadors. The most exciting pic so far: this intimate picture of Patti Hansen, who is Ferragamo girl Alexandra Richards’ style icon. “Luckily, I get her hand-me-downs,” Richards says of her mom.

You can be any shape or size to enter the Miss Universe pageant, as long as you’re a woman—a stipulation that recently disqualified Canadian Jenna Talackova from participating in her country’s contest for the crown. Ms. Talackova is transgender but checked off “female” in her entry forms, as she considers herself “a woman with history.” A landmark lawsuit is no doubt in the works. [Us]
After toying with shades of green and blonde, Willow Smith has dyed her buzz cut a retina-burning shade of yellow. Whipping your hair just got way more colorful. [Daily Mail]
A new study is under way to determine whether redheads feel more pain than their blonde or brunette peers after it was discovered that gingers need more anasthesia than other people when they go under the knife. The results will be published in September. [Telegraph]
Michelle Harper’s onyx topknot—replete with shorn undersection and sculpted sideburns—is almost as quintessential to the street-style blog fodder’s look as her persistent smear of red, doll-like lipstick and that enviable designer-dotted wardrobe. But at last night’s Signorina launch party to celebrate the latest fragrance from Salvatore Ferragamo, Harper was sporting a noticeable tweak to her signature ‘do. “I’m not afraid of a bold haircut,” she told us of her freshly Bic-ed hairline, which segued into a similarly shaved side and back panel. Such strokes of styling whimsy are the luxury of a fashion enthusiast who happens to be best friends with one of coiffure’s reigning hair heroes. “Danilo did it at his house,” Harper said of the celebrity stylist with whom she has “a fluid form of communication; he gets who I am and what I’m about.” Thoughts on Harper’s take on the classic fade?
We’re not going to pretend to know why Willow Smith—daughter of Will and Jada—is turning up at a few of the bigger Milan shows with her frighteningly toned mother, but we can tell you that we have been intrigued and, yes, even a little impressed by her front-row beauty and fashion choices. The nine-year-old’s most outlandish sartorial decision perhaps came on Saturday, in the form of a bold-shouldered snow leopard jacket that she wore to Ferragamo. But even that piece of exceptional outerwear came in a close third to two next-level hair looks that have really captivated our attention over the last 72 hours:
Exhibit A: Side-Swept With a Skunk Stripe at Emporio Armani
Having rocked the über-trendy side shave all summer long to support her brother Jayden’s Karate Kid press junket, Willow is no stranger to experimenting with the asymmetrical ‘do. At Emporio Armani, this meant adding frosted tips to a free-flowing coif that was brushed out and pulled to the side.
Exhibit B: Mesozoic Rattail at Dolce & Gabbana
Getting snapped in the Dolce & Gabbana VIP room is not to be taken lightly, something that was not lost on Willow, who sported a French-braided, single triceratops ridge that transitioned into a woven, navel-grazing rattail last night—appropriate fare for hobnobbing with the likes of Naomi Campbell, of course.
No word on whether or not the pre-teen is headed to Paris as well, but we secretly hope that more outrageous cameos await us in the week to come.
You’ve likely already read about this week’s launch party for Salvatore Ferragamo’s latest fragrance, Attimo—a perfume that, according to its press release, is meant to represent “the essence of life’s most precious instants.” Models Irina Lazareanu, Agyness Deyn, and Lindsay Ellingson; photographer Craig McDean; jewelry designer Gaia Repossi; and Greek shipping heir Stavros Niarchos all turned out to fête the instant of the fragrance’s coming-out party on Wednesday night—as did one Dree Hemingway, who stars in its print (and video) campaign, cradling a bottle of the light gold eau in her palm while wearing nothing more that a pale pink nightie with unfastened red satin Ferragamo stilettos. For those of you who had the pleasure of actually making it up to Le Bain’s rooftop soirée, something else, aside from the glitterati, may have caught your eye—or nose, as it were. Described by Firmenich noses Jean-Pierre Bethouart and Annick Menardo as a “floral green woody,” notes of nashi pear and lotus flower hit you first. A floral center of gardenia and frangiapani blossoms then begins to take shape, until the scent fully evolves on your skin with a warm dry-down of powdery musks and patchouli. If you couldn’t get past the list-holders at the Standard, you can still have the Attimo experience. Get ready to celebrate your own precious instants when the flacon hits counters at Bloomingdale’s on July 23.
Salvatore Ferragamo is rebranding its fun, flirty fragrances. The “young” collection will from this point forward be called the “cult” collection, and to properly inaugurate Incanto Bloom, the first installment of the new category, the brand has planned a host of happenings this weekend. The grapefruit flower, freesia, tea rose, and musk fragrance just hit shelves exclusively at Bloomingdale’s, and with every purchase of the perfume and its corresponding body care collection through Sunday, Ferragamo will send a miniature flacon to anyone you want in the United States. If you’re New York-based, you can also pop into the Incanto Bloom pop-up store at 201 Mulberry Street from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., where a cute video set to Chairlift’s popular song “Bruises” will be playing against the white walls while photographers take pictures of interested parties in front of the very springlike ad campaign. With a bright blue sky and green grass in the background, it might be the perfect 2-D escape from the snowstorm that’s about to hit Manhattan.
