Beauty 411: Kate Young


With the launch this week of her very own Target line, super-stylist Kate Young could become a household name. But for dedicated followers of fashion, Young, who cut her teeth at Vogue and Teen Vogue (she styled the teen style bible’s premiere cover) has long been a familiar presence. Besides lending her styling talents to a number of designers—Jason Wu and Vena Cava among them—Young is especially known for her red-carpet wizardry with clients such as Michelle Williams, Natalie Portman, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and Rachel Weisz. Her formula, which often includes vintage and plenty of offbeat colors, strikes that tenuous balance of nudging the style envelope without ever being too over-the-top—take as evidence Michelle’s tomato-red strapless peplum Louis Vuitton in 2012, Rachel’s black net polka-dot Louis Vuitton for the 2013 Golden Globes, and Natalie’s mid-pregnancy blush silk Viktor & Rolf with a beaded rose embellishment for the 2011 Globes. Unsurprisingly, Young, with her signature snow-white hair, is known to make quite a fashionable impression herself, so we were especially keen to get a peek at her beauty black book.

The Hair Authorities: Orlando or Joe at Orlo Salon

“I love everyone at this salon and really look forward to my appointments. I try not to cut my hair until they tell me that I need to…left to my own devices, it would be to my waist.”

The Platinum Whiz: Jennifer at Orlo

“She’s the best—my hair is white, white, white, and it’s in reasonable condition because of her.”

The Spa Escape Close to Home: The Greenwich Hotel

“The spa at The Greenwich Hotel is amazing. The pool is so beautiful, and the room was imported from Japan, or something insane. They have a treatment where they give you a special bath based on the season, and then a long massage. It’s the best.”

The Glow Giver: Joanna Vargas

“All the people I know with beautiful skin go to Joanna for facials. It’s amazing the difference she makes in your skin—clear, glowing, and tight when you leave.”

The Acupuncturist: Shane Hoffman at Turning Point

“He’s really cool. I don’t go very often, but I’d like to.”

The Workout: Running

“I love Nike shoes and have a Nike running watch that tracks everything. I’m running a half marathon at the end of the month.”

The Natural-Food Resource: Erewhon

“Erewhon in L.A. is the best! I love it there; there’s so much crazy natural health stuff. My favorite is Starfire water, which resonates with the vibes of the universe. Hilarious and amazing. I’ll try anything.”

The Getaway: Palm Springs

“I go to my house upstate to chill, but I love Palm Springs and was just thinking it would be nice to go to the Viceroy there or take a long weekend at Two Bunch Palms.”

The Beauty Arsenal

“The products I rely on are Rodin Oil, Eminence powder sunblock, Ren Glyco Lactic Mask, Elixir Ultime hair oil by Kérastase, and L’Artisan Passage d’Enfer perfume. I also love the new NARS glossy lip pencils and have a slight obsession with Aesop mouthwash.”

Chloë Moretz Nails It


Chloë Moretz may be refusing fashion campaign offers for now to give herself “room to spread [her] wings and grow up and become a young woman,” as she recently explained to New York magazine, but that hasn’t stopped her from becoming a fashion—and beauty—darling in the process. Over the past few months of premieres and awards shows, the Hugo star has doubled up on Proenza, sported a black Chanel frock, and slipped into a Suno wrap dress while working her hair into everything from a chin-grazing bob to a boy-meets-girl quiff. And then there was that Jalouse cover, which features the 14-year-old in a long, lavender-streaked wig with two barrettes placed just so along her hairline. It should be no surprise then that Moretz was first in line to flank Jason Wu at his Target collaboration launch party last night, an impressive coronet of knotted braids and a glossy black manicure in tow. We assume we’re not alone when we say that we can’t wait to see what she’s got planned for the Oscars. Thoughts on her look?

Cos Bar, Now At Target; Eau de Carven: It’s Happening; And More…


While Target’s Go International designer collaboration may be no more, the mega retailer is introducing a new high-meets-low shopping concept that will feature six established brands in shop-within-shop environments for six weeks at a time. The first roster has been announced, and it includes The Webster, Miami’s destination for all things designer and hip, and Cos Bar, the über-chic cosmetics emporium that you can typically only find in resort areas like Wailea, Hawaii, and Aspen. [WWD]

You may have to wait until next month to actually spritz Roberto Cavalli’s new fragrance, but a teaser video for its Elisa Sednaoui-fronted campaign is streaming online now. In it, the director describes capturing the “animal magnetism” of the scent as a real live tiger crosses the screen. Then, almost on cue, Sednoui chirps something about “the tiger inside.” Ah, the intrigue. [YouTube]

In other designer fragrance news, the Carven fragrance we told you was in the works almost two years ago is actually happening, according to the house’s designer, Guillaume Henry. “We are working on it,” Henry confirms. “It has to be fresh; it has to be spontaneous; it has to be something that you don’t even smell.” [Fashionista]

While the Best Makeup award is always a hotly contested category at the Oscars, it might come as a shock that there is in fact no Best Hair award. But if Ted Gibson has anything to say about it, that’s about to change. The celebrity hairstylist has started an online petition to make sure excellence in coiffeur is recognized by the Academy. [The Petitions Site]

Katy Perry may be in the middle of divorce proceedings with her soon-to-be-ex-husband Russell Brand, but that hasn’t stopped the singer-turned-beauty entrepreneur form signing yet another beauty contract. The ghd spokesperson will be designing a line of custom eyelashes for the false lash brand Eyelure, due out next month. [Vibe Vixen]

Missoni Gets Pinned


The Missoni-for-Target collab hits stores in two short weeks, and while you’ve presumably already made a mental list of the sweater dresses, beanies, and floppy hats you plan to get while the getting’s good (words to the wise: The Target stores in secondary markets always have more stock than the ones in consumer hot beds like New York), we’d like to direct your attention to the beauty offerings that will arrive alongside their fashion counterparts. Train cases, cosmetics clutches, headscarves, and headbands in a range of the Italian house’s signature prints will make their debut on September 13, along with these little beauties at left. That’s right: You’re looking at two different iterations of Missoni bobby pins! Three words: fashion week essentials.

Maybelline Great Lash Turns 40


Ask any drugstore beauty queen what her favorite budget-friendly mascara is and the answer will reliably come back the same: Maybelline Great Lash. Known for its dark glossy formula, the industry-standard lash lacquer has made its way into makeup bags across the country since debuting four decades ago, becoming a fixture on vanities and movie lots alike (Mad Men makeup department head Lana Horochowski doesn’t go to work without it). Last year, Maybelline tackled the style set as well, sponsoring New York’s Fall 2010 shows at Bryant Park. To celebrate its 40th birthday, designers are returning the favor. This weekend will see the release of three limited-edition Great Lash tubes conceived by Max Azria, Tracy Reese, and Vivienne Tam. Exclusively available at Target, each mascara has a hand-scrawled signature as well as a singular black design element that adorns its classic hot pink facade. Click here to pre-order these collector’s items and get them while the getting’s good.
