PFW Backstage Beauty Alert: Minx Madness

On Monday, March 21st, 2011
Minx has been grabbing headlines left and right in recent weeks. In addition to securing a U.S. patent on its unique method for applying non-liquid graphic films to nails (imitators, beware) and introducing a new collaboration series with super-manicurists like Lisa Logan (Beyoncé, Mary J. Blige, and Queen Latifah) and Marian Newman (Givenchy, Vivienne Westwood, ...

Smelling Like “Rihanna Was Here,” Bieber’s Beauty Coup, And More…

On Monday, March 21st, 2011
As the on-counter date for Rihanna’s first fragrance, Reb’l Fleur, draws near, more details are emerging. The fruity floral—dispensed from a stiletto-inspired flacon—is apparently meant to say, “Rihanna was here”. There will also be a 30-second “hip, edgy” viral video to further promote the perfume. [MTV] The new (well, continuing) reality star attention grab? A ...

Keira Saddles Up For Chanel, The House That Nail Polish Built, And More…

On Thursday, March 17th, 2011

And it’s definitely the oval look,” she told us. It looks like an homage to the fashion world’s open-armed embrace of all things seventies, ...

Backstage At Dries, Promises Of A Verdant Spring

On Thursday, March 10th, 2011
As anyone familiar with Chanel’s Fall 2009 smash Jade polish already knows, Peter Philips, the house’s global creative director of makeup, has a way of working with off-kilter colors like green and making them even more desirable than, say, red or pink—hues you may more readily associate with makeup. He did it again at Dries ...

Topshop Beauty Is Ready For Spring

On Thursday, March 3rd, 2011
If, like us, you too are revving up your spring wardrobe for the temperature spike that is to come—a pair of sandals here, a flowy skirt there—Topshop is presumably on your agenda. Now that its spring/summer makeup collection is officially on shelves, you may want to push the store straight to the top of your ...

Crazy For Cola

On Tuesday, March 1st, 2011
It’s official; I am ready for fall. A combination of this latest East Coast heat wave, an air-conditioner that’s been on the fritz, and the consistent flow of cooler-weather-appropriate nail lacquers to recently cross my desk has pushed me over the edge (all right, it was mostly the latter). We’ve already mentioned China Glaze’s seasonal ...

Jerry And Georgia, Like Mother, Like Daughter; Emma Watson Acts Out; And More…

On Wednesday, February 16th, 2011
Proper skincare is apparently a family affair for the Jaggers, as mother Jerry Hall and daughter Georgia May headed down under this week to fête Invisible Zinc, the Aussie sunscreen line whose ad visuals the two women front.
