Sienna Miller’s road to beauty superstardom hasn’t been all blond bangs and perma-tanned, svelte limbs. There have been trials and tribulations with overly plucked brows, corn rows, and dye jobs gone awry. But these days, the pregnant starlet has a fail-safe regimen that includes Skinceuticals, Amorepacific ABC Serum, MAC Select Foundation, Givenchy Hydra Magic Lip and Cheek Balm, NARS Multiple Bronzer in Palm Beach, and Chanel Rouge Allure in Fatale, which Miller calls her “perfect shade” of red lipstick.

The New York Times has decided to weigh in on the increasing popularity of nail-polish-as-fashion-accessory two years after the trend first became a matter of public discourse. But no matter; in a series of two articles, both published this week, the Gray Lady has joined the conversation, and here’s what she seems to be offering to the dialogue: Women—of all ages—are turning to new vibrant lacquer colors to “[take] a risk”; and men prefer pale pinks and clear topcoats to more experimental shades of green and yellow. Groundbreaking stuff. [NYT, NYT]
After a massive Facebook campaign to convince Mattel to make its one-of-a-kind bald Barbie a staple in its lineup of dolls for children with cancer, the toy company has conceded. The hairless dolls will come with an assortment of wigs, hats, scarves, and head coverings and will be available for donation and distribution early next year. [Times Live]
British perfumer Clive Christian, he of “the most expensive perfume in the world” fame, is getting into the Queen’s Jubilee spirit this year by offering his famed No. 1 fragrance in a new, collectible flacon. Only 500 bottles of the limited-edition Imperial Jubilee scent will be produced, with a higher concentration of the rose, jasmine, ylang-ylang, and ancient Indian sandalwood fragrance inside. The price? $1,300 a pop. [Racked]
Braids have always fascinated the fashion set, turning up with regularity on the runway. This season alone, we spotted noteworthy plaits backstage at Viktor & Rolf and Lanvin. The simple style has become a favorite on the red carpet as well: Who can forget Sienna Miller’s Heidi-style coronet at the Golden Globes, or Blake Lively’s high and sleek interwoven ponytail at the Emmys circa 2009? Uma Thurman is the latest A-lister to adopt the easy yet somehow sophisticated style, which she wore to the L.A. premiere of her new movie, Ceremony, with wavy face-framing tendrils and a messy, texturized braid down her back. We’re of the mind that Uma can do no wrong, so we’re loving this. You too?
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.
Sienna Miller has been boho royalty since she made her grand entrance on the public stage during her first romance with Jude Law. In addition to her fringe-with-everything mentality and a collection of summer music festival-friendly vintage sunglasses, it was her long, flaxen hair that earned her the neo-hippie cred—always middle-parted and always with a slight natural wave. Fast-forward a couple years to “nanny gate,” and a wispy breakup bob defined her single-and-loving-it appearance. Now back with Jude (and reportedly house-hunting), the actress took to the scissors again this weekend, opting for face-framing fringe and some dark lowlights. What does it all mean, we ask you? Is a short shear required to cut the man right out of your life and reclaim your independence? Do longer, looser locks and subtle bangs indicate domestic bliss? Are hair tweaks a reliable sign of life upheaval, both good and bad? Discuss.
We’ve been semi-disappointed with a few of the bland red-carpet looks Sienna Miller has put together during the global press junket for G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. But at last night’s premiere in L.A., she redeemed herself. In an exercise in real Hollywood glamour, the actress broke out a deep side part, sculpted brows, lots of lashes, and a lustrous rust-colored pout courtesy of a mixture of two forthcoming Chanel Rouge Allure shades, Fatale and Obscure, both out this Fall. Very Lana Turner, and very well done. Don’t you think?
