There were many enviable makeup looks that turned up on the red carpet for the 30th annual Fashion Group International Night of Stars in New York City—from Doutzen Kroes’ tomato red lip (seen on multiple Spring 2014 runways) to Miley Cyrus’ surprisingly sophisticated sea foam shadow. However, it was the braids, brushed-up brows, and black cat-eyes (reminiscent of the feline shape that made an appearance at Haider Ackermann this season) worn by Zoë Kravitz that took top prize. Her septum ring completed the punk-like package and brought some edge to Cipriani Wall Street, a spot that sees more buttoned-up bankers than it does the risk-taking fashion set.
While Michelle Williams admits that the only people who currently like her signature pixie haircut are “gay men and my girlfriends,” she says she cut it for “the one straight man who has ever liked short hair”: Heath Ledger. “I wear it in memorial of somebody who really loved it.” [Us]

A Botox turf war is heating up as medical professionals outside of the dermatology sphere begin offering the popular injectable at their practices. Whether or not you should trust your gynecologist or dentist to get rid of that furrowed brow while conducting your annual checkup is another story. [Huff Po]
Alexander Wang muse Zoë Kravitz may have access to some of fashion’s most conceptual designs, but the actress swears she’s “pretty simple” when it comes to beauty. “I always use coconut oil and I always wear mascara. That’s kind of it.” [Teen Vogue]
Despite what the trend reports are saying following a recent uptick in forehead fringe, bangs do not look good everyone. It’s the whole length-to-face-shape ratio that makes them such a tricky business (and keeps bobby pin makers in business). Artful interpretations that play with placement can wreak even more havoc than bangs of the regular, eyebrow-grazing variety—except, that is, if you’re Zoë Kravitz. At the L.A. premiere of Conan the Barbarian, the model and Alexander Wang muse sported newly bleached mid-lengths and a very hard-to-pull-off short, choppy rendition of her typical fringe with none of the regrets that usually accompany similar stylistic endeavors. Which look do you prefer?
There is but one acronym to describe the news that a Gucci color cosmetics collection has been confirmed: O.M.G. [WWD]
Forget her Hollywood-royalty pedigree. Gwyneth Paltrow has revealed in the latest GOOP newsletter that some of her favorite beauty products are in fact from pharmacies—French ones (we didn’t really peg her for a Duane Reade regular). Favorites include must-haves from Avène (which coincidentally is now available at a DR near you) and Klorane, the naturally minded hair care line. [Monsters & Critics]
First came her starring role in Alexander Wang’s T campaign; now Zoë Kravitz is taking a turn as the face of Vera Wang’s perfume Princess. Seeing as how Leighton Meester will front ads for Wang’s forthcoming women’s fragrance, Kravitz’s Gossip Girl makeover in the print campaign seems fitting. [Bella Sugar Australia]

The Citizens Band’s performances have come to represent more than just an opportunity to see well-choreographed political satire in cabaret form. The singing, dancing, and acrobatic extravaganza that stars a rotating cast of a few of our favorite fashion and Hollywood notables has become something of a beauty showcase as well. Backstage, James Boehmer, international lead stylist for NARS Cosmetics, is frequently charged with crafting dramatic makeup schemes to help further the plot line of each show. For “The Debt Rattle”, the Citizens’ eighth original show, which premiered last night at the Henry Street Settlement and runs through Saturday, Boehmer transformed the likes of Sarah Sophie Flicker, Karen Elson, and Zoë Kravitz into Depression-era ragamuffins who have taken shelter from the economic storm in an auditorium promising food, warmth, and prize money if they can best their competitors. To translate all of that into cosmetic form, Boehmer took inspiration from illustrations of 1920′s Paris burlesque girls, Weimar Berlin, and a little Jane Fonda. “The show borrows from the Jane Fonda movie They Shoot Horses, Don’t They? about a desperate dance marathon during the Depression, so we decided to make everyone a bit tired around the eyes,” Boehmer explained. This meant starting individual eye makeup applications with a black base using NARS Cream Eyeshadow in Zardos and adding definition with a black pencil. To sculpt and highlight the area, Boehmer then added shimmery and glittery colors on top so they would “pop,” like NARS new Soft Touch Shadow Pencils in Aigle Noir, a gold-flecked onyx, and Goddess, a glistening pink Champagne. “I’m obsessed with Biba,” Boehmer added. “So there are elements of that in the makeup, too. It’s all about reinterpreting great heroines of the past—Theda Bara, Garbo, Jean Harlow—but with a late-1960′s spin.” As for the skin, Boehmer did a lot of shaping and sculpting with NARS Multiple Bronzer and opted for Velvet Matte Lip Pencils over lipstick for added staying power. The rest is just showmanship. “Add some glitter, sequins, rhinestones, false eyelashes and then it starts to feel about right!” Click here for show times and ticket information.
