Throwback Thursday is a new feature on Beauty Counter in which we pore over the pages of our favorite glossies from decades past in search of a little modern-day makeup and hair inspiration.
The Model: Yasmin Le Bon
The Moment: Black headbands
The Motivation: All too often, we find ourselves looking back on the eighties for beauty and fashion inspiration—not so much for the shoulder pads and side ponytails (although we will admit to dabbling in both in the not-so-distant past) but to channel the feeling of unbridled creativity that colored the supermodel era. Apparently, we’re not the only ones: Yasmin Le Bon’s polarized lenses in this 1985 shoot are trending again; ditto her black do-rag turned headband, which turned up last month in Paris courtesy of Julien d’Ys and Guido Palau who employed similar black hair wraps at Alexander Wang’s Balenciaga debut and Nina Ricci, respectively. The style seems ripe for a reprise this summer, if you ask us.

Marion Cotillard is not deluding herself when it comes to aging. “I’m not looking forward to it,” she admits. But that doesn’t mean you’ll see her turning to the Botox vial anytime soon. “Sometimes in L.A. or even in New York, you run into a lot of products, a lot of women filled with all those products. It’s not just about plastic surgery now, it’s about injections…and all the women look kind of the same. It just shows fear, and that makes me sad.” [The Cut]
What gives Fox’s female news anchors a competitive edge over their more liberal-minded competitors? An on-site glam squad that brings the full-face treatment for every broadcast. C-SPAN doesn’t even have a makeup room! [The Atlantic]
Yasmin Le Bon Talks Beauty Secrets; The Girl Scouts Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Fashion And Makeup Badges; And More…
Model and Duran Duran band-aid Yasmin Le Bon reveals the secret to looking utterly ageless, even as she approaches 50: “The most important thing is to enjoy your life. I know that’s an old cliché but it does make a difference. How you feel inside kicks off the hormones that make your skin look good.” [Grazia]
The Girl Scouts are getting PC. The association has just announced plans to replace the Fashion, Fitness, and Makeup badge, which was introduced in 1987, with the Science of Style badge, which goes way beyond rewarding shopping and primping skills and has girls learn about nanotechnology in fabrics and the chemistry of sunscreens.

Don’t expect to find zesty notes in forthcoming fragrances from Dior and Prada. The brands’ go-to perfume house, Givaudan, has plans to fully cancel out higher input costs for raw materials such as citrus and orange oil, which have seen a spike in price over the past year. [Reuters]
The beauty business in Asia is still booming—something that hasn’t been lost on Guerlain. The LVMH-owned French brand has just enlisted Malaysian-born actress Michelle Yeoh as its latest brand ambassador to help “introduce [its] Asian clients to the enchanted world of [its] perfume creations.” [WWD]
