Lupita Nyong’o Named World’s Most Beautiful

-------

2014 MTV Movie Awards - ArrivalsLupita Nyong’o has a growing awards collection (including an Oscar), but she “never dreamed” she would be named People magazine’s Most Beautiful Person. The 12 Years a Slave star and Lancôme spokeswoman appears on this month’s cover with her trademark cropped hair, a sparkly necklace, and her perpetual smile. “I was happy for all the girls who would see me on [it] and feel a little more seen,” she told People. Growing up, her idea of beauty was “light skin and long, flowing, straight hair…Subconsciously you start to appreciate those things more than what you possess.” Now her natural beauty is not only celebrated but further enhanced by her innate elegance, humility, and originality. Nyong’o joins an impressive roster of past winners including Julia Roberts, Beyoncé, Jennifer Aniston, Halle Berry, and Angelina Jolie.

On Our Radar: Ippolita Bags

-------

The Florence-born jeweler Ippolita—one-name only, please—has had the likes of Kate Hudson, Halle Berry, Reese Witherspoon, and more wearing her elegant 18-karat gold and sterling jewelry for 12 years now. Soon, the red-carpet set will see the designer’s new handbags (prices start at $1,495), too. Made of python and suede and topped with brass and wood detailing, the new accessories will launch at the same time as her new Madison Avenue store, her first-ever retail location. The full collection consists of six different color combinations; my favorite is above.

Alexis Bittar recruited Absolutely Fabulous icons Patsy and Edina for his Fall 2012 ad campaign. “From the first episode, I inherited the word ‘sweetie’ for about five years. It got to the point where it became nauseating—I was forced to stop,” Bittar says of his obsession with the show. [Telegraph]

Next month, Miguel Androver will be back on the New York fashion scene sharing his environmentally friendly design principles at various fashion week events. His namesake line (which includes his capsule collection for eco-friendly line Hessnatur) is being shown February 11, followed by a limited-edition collection for Savage Senses February 12, and he’s unveiling a line of organic T-shirts at downtown boutique Casa di Moda.

In Hollywood, It’s Ladies Night

-------

Fresh from naming Katie Holmes as their 2011 WIF MaxMara Face of the Future earlier this week, Women in Film kept the momentum going with a bustling pre-ceremony circuit Friday night. The group, with a little help from MAC, held its fourth annual pre-Oscar cocktail party at the Soho House. Not even a torrential downpour could dampen the celebratory spirit of WIF’s president Cathy Schulman, who toasted this year’s female nominees. Fellow nominees—in the same category, no less—Melissa Leo and Amy Adams from The Fighter caught up with the film’s director, David O. Russell, while another Best Supporting Actress hopeful, True Grit‘s Hailee Steinfeld, milled nearby.

Halle Berry, the evening’s hostess (there with boyfriend Olivier Martinez), acknowledged that although the tone was celebratory, the struggles that women endure in Hollywood continue. “I have some friends who say, ‘I wish there were no such thing as Women in Film,’ ” Berry (left, with Adams) said. “But the truth is we have to come out and support each other and lift each other up, and we should be doing that forever and a day.”

Before They Were Stars, They Had Pores, Too

-------


Unretouched celebrity photos have become so rare, they’re marketable (see Marie Claire‘s May Jessica Simpson cover: “The Real Jessica: No makeup, No retouching, No regrets!”). But before PhotoShop helped celebrities look as good as inhumanly possible, a great portrait was the product of lighting, makeup, and a skilled photographer. Johnny Rozsa, who’s been immortalizing household names over the past three decades for publications like Vogue and The Face, collected 115 unfiltered, never-before-seen photos of stars before they hit super-fame—and, not to mention, before many of them went under the knife—into a retrospective coffee-table book, Untouched. There’s Catherine Zeta-Jones—back when she was just a beautiful Welsh girl—posing with her tracheotomy scar prominently displayed. And a younger, curvier Halle Barry in a beret, cheekily mooning the camera. Arnold Schwarzenegger makes an appearance, too, pulling a practically adolescent Andrea Dellal into a beefy embrace (pictured). Untouched is on sale at Barneys, and Rosza is celebrating the book’s release with a solo exhibition that opens today at Christopher Henry Gallery in Chinatown.

Untouched runs until November 28, 127 Elizabeth St., NYC, (212) 244-6004.
