Girls has already inspired a nail polish line, and with just one season to its name and another currently airing on HBO, the show just scored its first beauty contract as well: Allison Williams has been named the new face of Simple Skincare. [People StyleWatch]
Gucci has just released a new installment of its Frank Miller-directed Gucci Guilty commercial, starring Evan Rachel Wood and Captain America, a.k.a Chris Evans. The ad spot is to celebrate the arrival of Gucci Guilty Black for him and for her, and the one-minute short film is fittingly…dark. [YouTube]
There’s a rumor going around London that Kate Middleton has given up her fake-tanning habit to ensure that she isn’t exposed to any chemicals while pregnant with the heir to the throne of England. Too bad it’s the dead of winter across the pond. [Mirror]
Remember the gold chevron manicure we spotted on Beyoncé at her Super Bowl conference last week? It looks like she stayed the gilded course to perform at the big game yesterday. Why fix what’s not broken? [The Cut]
Winter is really a slap in the face, especially when it just keeps coming at you (the New York blizzard they’re predicting for tomorrow—right before fashion week—is a huge downer). Aside from the sartorial hazards it presents, the relentless cold weather has been seriously damaging to my skin, leaving it red and raw. I recently started going for really long jogs in the freezing cold in lieu of my overpriced gym membership and to, you know, maintain a little sanity as the season pushes on. The endorphins are definitely great, but the inflamed, cracked face I’m left with is decidedly less so. Enter Simple skincare, a new U.K. import currently available at your local Duane Reade. The range includes a full line of face products as well as select hair and body items that are all completely free of harsh, irritating dyes and fragrances. What you’ll like most about the formulas, though, are the prices: Nearly everything goes for under $10. The Refreshing Facial Wash Gel is a current favorite. A sexy version of Cetaphil, the soap-free, grasshopper green goo cleanses gently without stripping my skin of its natural oil. (Tip: It’s pretty concentrated; a nickel-size drop is all you need.) The snow and frigid temps may persist, but at least now you can fight back on the cheap.
