Whether or not Marc Jacobs will be leaving Louis Vuitton before next season hasn’t been officially made clear, but the French house has just announced that it will be getting something very exciting in 2012: a fragrance. [WWD]
Speaking of perfume expansions, Tamara Mellon has big dreams for Jimmy Choo’s beauty potential. After launching its first ever eau de toilette earlier this year, she plans to debut an eau de parfum, a glittering body oil, and a glitter body cream in 2012. [Harper’s Bazaar]
Scarlett Johansson has gone brunette—for a role. The sexpot actress was spotted donning a raven-haired bob with bangs for the upcoming flick Under the Skin, in which she plays an alien sexual predator, whatever that means. [Daily Mail]
Introducing “super skin,” a film of single-walled carbon nanotubes that’s being hailed as the biggest thing since Botox. The revolutionary material could be instrumental in making touch-sensitive prosthetic limbs, replacing sagging and wrinkled skin, or even creating realistic humanlike robots. [Zdnet]
It’s official: Blondes do not in fact have more fun. That seems to be the message Hollywood is sending, as a slew of its biggest names have ditched their flaxen locks for ginger hues of late. Just when we thought Blake Lively’s golden auburn at the Time 100 Party last week was the pinnacle of the emerging trend’s dominance, Scarlett Johansson went a fiery shade of comic book-heroine red for the White House Correspondents’ Dinner this weekend—fitting for a starlet about to get prime screen time in next year’s Avengers. This is not the first time ScarJo has embraced the coppery shade, having gone strawberry blonde two summers ago after a stint as a brunette. But this deep cherry incarnation is certainly a first. Can you get behind it?
Scarlett Johansson is back in front of the camera again for Dolce & Gabbana The Makeup’s summer color collection. As per usual, she is looking particularly pouty and busty, but this time sporting fuchsia nails, slightly smoked-out eyes, and full brows. [Grazia]
Attention beauty-minded art collectors: Selections from London’s Somerset House’s René Gruau exhibit honoring the famed Dior illustrator’s body of work will be auctioned off at Christie’s London tomorrow. If a vintage drawing of a Dior fragrance flacon would really pull that room together, best to ready your bids now. [Bazaar U.K.]
Naturally minded makeup maven Josie Maran was in the vanguard with her argan oil-infused cosmetics collection, but her biggest green-leaning tip has nothing to do with products. “[Take] your clothes to a natural and organic dry cleaner. It is better if your body doesn’t absorb chemicals from your clothing on a daily basis,” she advises. [T]
Look out for a lot more of the Donald. In addition to a potential bid for the GOP nomination, he has also trademarked a new brand, SUCCESS BY TRUMP, for use in selling “cologne; perfume; fragrances; after-shave lotions; skin moisturizer; shampoo; conditioner; deodorant; soaps for hand, face, and body; body powder; bath oil; bath gel; bath salts; [and] bubble bath.” Be afraid. [Gawker]
Also venturing into his own fragrance endeavor: Karl Lagerfeld. The Kaiser is said to be at work on a new perfume called Paper Passion, which reportedly smells of books and contains a “fatty nuance.” [Bella Sugar]
We’re just going to say it: The Golden Globes are hands-down the best awards show of the year. First off, they’re actually significant. Not like the People’s Choice Awards, or whatever awards shows MTV is conjuring up at the moment. And style-wise, they usually hit a, if not perfect, than certainly interesting pitch: more formal than the Grammys, less fussy than the Oscars. In the annals of red-carpet history, the Globes have also offered up some memorable moments in bangs (Reese Witherspoon), braids (Sienna Miller), and boobs (Scarlett Johansson). So, in preparation for this weekend’s broadcast, we offer you our own beauty-themed winners’ circle. As far as early projections go, we’re looking for Michelle Williams’ pixie cut and Natalie Portman’s brows to have a big night. Click here for more.
If we had to choose one word to sum up the month’s biggest beauty goings-on, it would be: hair. A cornucopia of colors flooded the Paris runways; a wash of new brunettes showed up on the red carpet; a few very high-profile cuts had us contemplating changing our lob into a bona fide bob; and an ingredient scandal rocked the salon establishment, possibly turning the curly-haired masses against straightening treatments for good. But there was plenty of other news to report as the holiday season began at the retail level and a certain teen idol made his grand entrée into the world of primping. (If we had to choose two more words to encompass the month that was, they’d be Justin and Bieber). Click here for more of the top stories.
