Chanel Resort 2014 Beauty: Making New Waves

For the debut of Chanel’s 2014 Cruise collection in Singapore, Peter Philips created a New Wave-inspired beauty look (a remnant of the MET Ball’s punk love, perhaps?) to accent Karl Lagerfeld’s neutral-colored summer wardrobe. While there were no mesh lashes this time around, eyes were still given a strong Siouxsie-like emphasis. Lids were darkened with […]

New York Fashion Week Beauty Trend: The Low Ponytail

Celeb Trend: The Side Part

The Grammys are this Sunday, and while the new, more conservative clothing advisory is getting a lot of press, I’m more concerned with beauty.

Golden Globe Winner: Bobs

Thanks to the trend and a load of hairpins, the faux bob held strong last night at the Golden Globes and so did the real thing! Naomi Watts once again donned the faux style, this time keeping it a little more cleaned up but just as chic, allowing her Lorraine Schwartz danglers some space to […]

Faux Bob Trend: Fake It ‘Till You Make It

Awards season is upon, so get ready for gorgeous gowns, clutches galore, and elaborately crafted hairstyles. We saw a lot of the faux bob last night (stay tuned for Golden Globe coverage).
