Being Sarah Palin’s Hair And Makeup; Lindsay’s Red Alert; and More..
Julianne Moore is a dead ringer for Sarah Palin in the new HBO flick Game Changer, which has a lot to do with an impressive hair and makeup job. “I’ve never been tan in my life, so we had to cover up my freckles, then darken my skin, and there was contouring,” says Moore, who spent two hours in the makeup chair each morning to get into character. Re-drawn lip lines, fake nails, and carefully selected contacts also helped along the transformation. “I asked to make the iris of the lens bigger than my iris. She has enormous brown eyes, so it made my eyes look bigger.” [People]
WWD caught up with fashion’s favorite hairstylist, Guido Palau, to find out what inspires the man Marc Jacobs and Miuccia Prada trust to make coiffing history each season, and according to Palau, he’s a sponge for information. “If I see something once, it goes in [my head],” he says. “It could be a painting or a building or a texture of hair or someone’s hair on the street or a movie or a moment. If I like it, it somehow gets stored in my brain and will come out at a certain moment. Style comes from everywhere. You just have to be open to it and take it all in.” [WWD]
Nicholas Kirkwood had a specific someone’s hair in mind when he designed a pair of shoes with a red ponytail dangling off the back. “It’s like a Florence and the Machine kind of red,” he says of the detail on the Jean Cocteau and Elsa Schiaparelli-inspired boot. [Fashionista]
Lindsay Lohan is making beauty headlines today—and the buzz has nothing to do with the did-she-or-didn’t-she speculation over her perfectly pouty lips: The natural redhead has cashed in her platinum-blond locks for a shade of light auburn. [Perez Hilton]
According to data from leading plastic surgeons around the world, the most sought-after female features include Taylor Swift’s hair, Natalie Portman’s nose, Anne Hathaway’s eyes, Scarlett Johansson’s lips, January Jones’ cheeks, and Halle Berry’s jawline—which equals one weird-looking composite.
