Even Nicole Does The Fringe

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, June 14, 2011, In : Celebrities 

Bangs, bangs, bangs! One of th biggest hair trend that just won't die already caught Nicole Kidman. The famous Aussie actress sported her new ginger fringe with an extra-long ponytail (from Fall’s big trend) last week at CMT Music Awards in Nashville. This makes me want to rethink chopping some of my locks into a fringe as well. If only hair grows that fast!

Beauty Raves From Globes

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, January 18, 2011, In : Celebrities 
My top picks and favorite beauty looks from The 68th Golden Globes.


January Jones' Old Hollywood Waves

Topping the list is of course January Jones who nailed it with her glossy '40s blonde hairstyle, teamed with a rich red lip. Her classy look spelled out serious glamour. 


Olivia Wilde’s French Maiden Look

Olivia’s makeup look was inspired by images she collected of what she refers to as ‘the French girl.’ Celebrity makeup artist Spencer Barnes kept her face fresh and clean, pairing it wi...

Do Men Prefer Long Hair?

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, December 15, 2010, In : Celebrities 
A recent story in People claims Pete Wentz actually isn't a fan of wife Ashlee Simpson-Wentz's recently-cropped hair. Her new cut is sharp and crisp—she looks sophisticated, more like the hip young mom she is and less like a teenage pop star she used to be. But it isn't really a surprise that no matter how much I like her new style, her husband might not. The beauty lore has always been that men prefer women to have long hair. In my own life, it proves certainly as true. I've had a chin-len...

Portman in Pastels

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, November 15, 2010, In : Celebrities 
Portman wore a floral Rodarte dress showcasing a makeup look that was equally in bloom at the screening of Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan, the film where Natalie Portman starred . To bring out the pinks and purples in the strapless frock, she chose to apply a concentrated amount of pink blush on the apples of her cheeks and a pink-violet sheer lipstick for an equally rosy pout. With her new Dior cosmetics contract (look out for Portman in ad visuals beginning next year), the brand’s new Ro...

ScarJo's Shorter Bob

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, October 26, 2010, In : Celebrities 

One of the things that makes me rethink growing my locks long is a Hollywood celebrity pulling off a fab short haircut. I almost got distracted and wanted to call my hairstylist to book an appointment when I saw Scarlett Johansson’s summer bob in its shorter crop version. At the Mango Fashion Awards in Barcelona last week, ScarJo sported an even choppier version of the original cut, which now grazes the nape of her neck with thinned out, longer wisps in front. I am so tempted right now.

Kate Moss' New Bangs

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, October 20, 2010, In : Celebrities 


I find it odd that Kate Moss experiments on her fashion wardrobe a lot but doesn’t really put any thought on doing the same when it comes to beauty. That’s why it was such a surprise to catch her in a new beauty make-over: bangs! The supermodel and trendsetter, who set off a hair craze back in 2007 when she initially cut herself some brow-grazing fringe, returned to the style at the London release party for Bryan Ferry’s new album, Olympia—for which her famous face provides the cover ...

Kristen Back to Brunette

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, October 19, 2010, In : Celebrities 


Kristen Stewart’s dye job (thanks to colorist Marie Robinson) was the talk of the town last summer as the Twilight star went for strawberry blonde for the saga’s Eclipse press event. Just a few days ago though, Stewart has returned to her roots for fall, vaunting a deep chestnut hue at Spike TV’s Scream 2010 awards last weekend. The dark shade transition is perfect especially for the cold months ahead—despite having been fans of her ginger strands. Which of the two hair colors do you ...

Serena's Undone Braid

Posted by Dior Co on Friday, October 8, 2010, In : Celebrities 
If you saw Gossip's Girl latest episode last Monday, you're probably just as eager as I to talk about the braid hairstyle Serena wore to Chuck's charity benefit. (Translation for non-Gossip-fans: Here's a really interesting braid hairstyle worn by the lovely Blake Lively). So, Blake's hair was stick-straight and loose, but the ends of one front section were woven into a thick braid. Ie've seen braids incorporated into loose, long hairstyles many times before, but usually they are smaller and/...

Willow Smith: New Trend-setter?

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, September 28, 2010, In : Celebrities 

How young is too young to attend Milan fashion shows? Apparently, there's no age restriction as Willow Smith—daughter of Will and Jada—turned up at a few of the bigger Milan shows with her perfectly toned mom. I was intrigued and yes, even impressed by her front-row beauty and fashion choices. The nine-year-old’s most outlandish sartorial decision perhaps came  in the form of a bold-shouldered snow leopard jacket that she wore to Ferregamo's show. But even that piece of exceptional oute...

Deconstructed Curls

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, September 20, 2010, In : Celebrities 

freida-pinto-curls_main.jpgFreida Pinto brought glamour to a whole new level with these glossy curls at the premiere of You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger at the Toronto Film Festival. I'm coveting her look, created by stylist Jonathan Hanousek, and now he's sharing his step-by-step instructions for how we can re-create the style on our own.

    • Begin by wrapping thin sections of hair (about one and a half inches wide) around a curling iron with a one inch barrel.
    • Before curling, spray each section with a firm hold hairspray...

Anne's Hair Hath Gone Away?

Posted by Dior Co on Friday, September 3, 2010, In : Celebrities 
Raven beauty Anne Hathaway has debuted her new short pixie cut while filming her new movie in France. Fans of the Devil Wears Prada star were shocked that she pulled an Emma Watson, for the same reason that the look is required for a movie. But damn, we've been had: The new pixie cut Anne Hathaway’s been sporting around town is not in fact a crop at all; it’s a wig—and a damn good one, too! Her representative has confirmed that the new shorn look is nothing other than movie magic and is...

Kate Beckinsale's Fancy Ponytail

Posted by Dior Co on Thursday, August 26, 2010, In : Celebrities 


Another reason why I'm patiently growing my hair longer -- the fancy ponytail. I just can’t pass up the chance to discuss a good showing when I see one. Behold, Kate Beckinsale’s voluminous pony at the U.S. premiere of Going the Distance in LA this week. A combination of back-combing and finger-combing made this bodacious updo possible—it’s one part girl next door, another part professional athlete, and 100 percent red-carpet-ready. I can't wait to try this one. Maybe in 5 months I fi...

Emma Watson - The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo?

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, August 11, 2010, In : Celebrities 

More news about Emma Watson’s much discussed new pixie cut has surfaced. Word on the street is that the Burberry muse cut her locks for a chance at the lead role in the highly anticipated film version of Stieg Larsson’s The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. As Hollywood’s highest paid actress is 2009, Emma Watson has one of the most valuable manes in the business. But with the final two films in the Harry Potter series set for November 2010 and July 2011 releases, it looks like she’s ready...

Does the Hair Make the Woman?

Posted by Dior Co on Friday, May 28, 2010, In : Celebrities 


Sienna Miller has been boho royalty since she made her grand entrance on the public stage during her first romance with Jude Law. In addition to her fringe-with-everything mentality and a collection of summer music festival-friendly vintage sunglasses, it was her long, flaxen hair that earned her the neo-hippie cred—always middle-parted and always with a slight natural wave. Fast-forward a couple years to “nanny gate,” and a wispy breakup bob defined her single-and-loving-it appearance....

SJP's Sexy SATC Premiere Hair

Posted by Dior Co on Friday, May 28, 2010, In : Celebrities 


satc_2_main.jpgThere are some things that get better with time, and Sarah Jessica Parker's hair is definitely one of them. Just check out her look at last Monday night's New York City SATC 2 premiere: I'm not only loving her new buttery blonde color with it's bleached-out ends, darker crown, and haphazard highlights—I'm dying to appropriate her perfectly undone waves. They reminded me of some tricks I learned from celeb hairstylist Luigi Murenu, who famously softened Madonna's image with Botticelli waves ...

Leighton Meester Lightens Up

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, May 12, 2010, In : Celebrities 

As Gossip Girl’s Blair Waldorf, Leighton Meester is a bad-girl brunette. But as international ambassador for Herbal Essences, the actress/singer is playing a new role: dirty blonde. Meester, whose hair is naturally flaxen, dyes it for the hit CW series, but at a photo call to fête her new spokesperson deal in Madrid, she was looking decidedly less devious sporting a honey-colored side part and loose waves. What say you: better off dark and brooding, or is blonder the better course? Persona...

Renée’s New ‘Do

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, April 26, 2010, In : Celebrities 

After sporting a chic and uniform chin-length crop for the past year or so, Renée Zellweger has decided to change things up a little bit, debuting a spunkier new coif—with fringe!—at the Tribeca Film Festival premiere of My Own Love Song last week. The piece-y look reminds me of a less layered version of the famous shag Sally Hershberger gave Meg Ryan back in the day (thus entitling her to charge $800 for haircuts from then on), and seems to be working with Zellweger’s cherubic cheeks ...

Halle Berry’s Hair-Raising Antics

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, April 20, 2010, In : Celebrities 

Since parting ways with her caramel highlights and chin-length bob last year, Halle Berry has been successfully working a short crop with a little added length on top. Recently, we’ve noticed that she’s taken that extra step in the styling department, using a wax to sculpt said length into spikes, instead of treating it to a softer tousle. What do you think of the style: too much “edge" that only a model like Agyness Deyn can pull off, or can you never really have enough—especially if...

Jessica Simpson's New Beauty Show

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, March 15, 2010, In : Celebrities 

Jsimps_india_main.jpgJessica Simpson's new show, The Price of Beauty, which starts at 10 P.M. EDT today March 15 will examine how people perceive beauty differently all over the world. VH1 posted a preview video that gives a glimpse into Simpson's trips to Paris as well as Uganda, where women intentionally gain weight before marriage in order to look more attractive to their husbands. As Simpson, who's had struggles with how people perceive her weight, says, "This is the complete opposite of everything I've ever ...

Best Beauty Looks From The Oscars

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, March 8, 2010, In : Celebrities 

careymulligan_main.jpg
haven't been too impressed by the hair and makeup looks throughout this awards show season (especially the overplayed rumpled-updo-with-one-lank-piece-drooping-over-the-shoulder). But some of our favorite stars finally redeemed themselves at the ultimate ceremony last night, the Academy Awards. Many A-listers avoided the trendy traps and simply played up their best assets and looked stunning. Here my our picks for the top 5 beauty looks from the Oscars.
Carey Mulligan. Finally, a starlet who...

Sandra Bullock: Best of Oscars 2010

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, March 8, 2010, In : Celebrities 

Days before the Academy Awards, critics were saying Sandra Bullock had a very odd chance of winning the Oscar. Well, the actress didn't think so as she came in the show red-carpet ready, prepped with Best Actress-caliber beauty by Glam Squad headed by celebrity makeup artist Angela Levin for Chanel Beauty and hairstylist Adir Abergel for Frédéric Fekkai.

Sandra looked absolutely deserving of the award she took home with her modern-classy Hollywood makeup: dewy skin, soft eyes, and a bold red...

SJP: Scent And The City

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, February 22, 2010, In : Celebrities 


To properly welcome SJP NYC into her fragrance portfolio, Sarah Jessica Parker held court in front of a room of editors, bloggers, and twitter enthusiasts this morning. The strawberry/gardenia eau hit counters this week and should draw quite the crowd as Carrie Bradshaw fans brace for the forthcoming Sex and the City sequel and the marketing blitz that will accompany it. “I can’t really compartmentalize this one quite yet,” Parker said of her latest perfume, which is the most whimsical ...

Serena Williams Trades In Her Tennis Racket For A Nail File

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, February 22, 2010, In : Celebrities 


serenaw_main.jpgImagine walking in for a manicure appointment...and having one of the most style-obsessed women in sports ready to do your buff and polish. Serena wrote on her blog that she's enrolled in a 240-hour program to become a certified nail technician just after returning from the Australian Open. She'll spend the year (normally a six week program) getting her certification. She wrote, "No one likes getting their nails done more than I do. As a matter of fact I go every 4 days to get a manicure and ...

Gaga And Cyndi Both Think Pink

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, February 10, 2010, In : Celebrities 


Last year, I let you in on the well-guarded secret about MAC’s newest Viva Glam campaign stars, and finally, after months of embargoes, I've got the dish on the products they’ll actually be hawking. The "From Our Lips" edition of MAC’s successful charitable franchise, which donates 100 percent of the proceeds generated from the sales of limited-edition products to the MAC AIDS Fund, features two pink lipsticks—Cyndi Lauper’s rose-watermelon hue and Lady Gaga’s bubblegum pink. Both...

Red Lips at the Golden Globes

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, January 20, 2010, In : Celebrities 
Minimally glamorous beauty accessorized what seemed to be a never-ending assortment of one-shouldered dresses at Sunday night’s rainy Golden Globes ceremony. Chloë Sevigny, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and Drew Barrymore fought the weather with sleek, pulled-back chignons, while Nicole Kidman and Sandra Bullock worked lower, looser side-parted adaptations of the same style. There were some updo dissenters as well, with Jennifer Aniston and Julia Roberts bucking the humidity and keeping their tresses...

Drew Barrymore at The 67th Golden Globes

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, January 19, 2010, In : Celebrities 

I don't know about you, but I am totally a Red Carpet junkie! For someone who doesn't wake up early, I make it a point to wake up to catch every live broadcast of Award Shows every start of the year. Yesterday's 67th Annual Golden Globes Award was on in Star World live via satellite. Frankly, the show wasn't as good as last year's and most of the attendees weren't as show-stopping either -- maybe because of the unexpected rain that ruined most of their dresses and hair do's while walking on t...

Mariah's No Make-up Profile

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, December 8, 2009, In : Celebrities 

mariah.jpg

In the new film Precious directed by Lee Daniels, the talented Mariah Carey takes on the role of a makeup-free Harlem social worker named “Ms. Weiss.” The filmmaker’s vision was to add a level of realness to the movie by not using makeup on much of his cast, which included Mariah Carey (pictured above). She is almost unrecognizable, but it adds to the realness of the film as Carey explains. “They totally changed me,” Carey said. “I didn’t want to look in the mirror. It was beyon...

Lancôme Gets The Pretty Woman

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, December 7, 2009, In : Celebrities 
It was announced just December 4 that Julia Roberts, a.k.a. Pretty Woman, a.k.a. Erin Brockovich, a.k.a. the biggest actress in all of Hollywood, has accepted a spokesperson deal with Lancôme. The financial specifics and details of her product affiliations have not been disclosed, but it was heard that it's slated to launch in 2010. It’s likely a seven-figure deal, but I'm less interested in the financials than the fact that after two endorsement-free decades in the limelight, Roberts has ...

Agyness Stays In The Halloween Spirit

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, November 9, 2009, In : Celebrities 

Since parting with her signature platinum spikes, Agyness Deyn has been coming up with innovative ways to make her new ‘do equally statement-making. What better way to accessorize over-the-eye fringe than by emphasizing the lower lash line? Her Shu Uemura Black Velvet Feathers False Eyelashes come off a bit costume-y and doll-like at the 13th Annual 2009 ACE Awards, but Deyn does love spectacle, so we couldn’t expect anything else.

Leighton Meester Gets Cheeky

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, November 9, 2009, In : Celebrities 
Leighton Meester is doing for blush what Blair Waldorf did for the headband; the perfectly pink cheek is becoming her signature. At last night’s Swarovski-hosted book launch for Gossip Girlcostume designer Eric Daman’sYou Know You Want It: Style-Inspiration-Confidence, the show’s star placed the happy hue on her apples and dragged it outward toward her cheekbones for contouring. I, too have been feeling a little rouge of late, and have been leaning toward liquid and cream formulations, ...

Nicole Richie: From Blonde to Brunette

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, November 9, 2009, In : Celebrities 
This time of year, the decreased amount of sunlight typically has us thinking about going a shade or two darker with our hair. Nicole Richie seems to be on the same tip, displaying at the March of Dimes Fourth Annual Celebration of Babies gala last weekend a transitional color that utilized face-framing highlights to assist in the grow-out process from blond to brunette. Are you a fan of the mother of two’s fall look, or do you prefer her more SoCal and sun-kissed?

Drew Whips It

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, September 15, 2009, In : Celebrities 

With fashion week in full swing, it’s easy to forget that there are pictures being taken outside of New York City right now. But Drew Barrymore snapped us to attention with a new hairstyle last night at the Toronto International Film Festival premiere of Whip It. Perhaps taking cues from Daphne Guinness’ popular skunk stripe, Barrymore decided to play with black and white, blunt-cutting her medium-length blond locks and dip-dying the ends in dark pigment. It’s interesting, to say the le...

Rihanna Amuses Herself

Posted by Dior Co on Friday, September 4, 2009, In : Celebrities 

I'm not exactly sure where to begin here—with Rihanna’s adorable, front-tie headscarf or her super sick zebra-print nails (are they Minx? Hand designs? Airbrush? So many questions!). Suffice it to say, she heeded Six Flags’ “It’s Playtime” motto on a visit to the Valencia, California, park yesterday. Personally, I'm not amused with her latest beauty roller-coaster ride.

SJP In SATC, Redux

Posted by Dior Co on Friday, September 4, 2009, In : Celebrities 

As most New Yorkers (and diehard Sex and the City fans) know, the fearsome foursome have begun shooting the sequel to the acclaimed HBO series’ first film. Sarah Jessica Parker was spotted on set yesterday in Manhattan sporting two different hairstyles—tight corkscrews and a looser version with cascading waves—which got us to thinking about some of her best tresses from the show’s almost six-year run. And so, we thought we’d conjure a meeting of the minds and give you access to the ...

Katherine Heigl’s The Ugly Truth: Pretty Or Not?

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, July 27, 2009, In : Celebrities 




Katherine Heigl appears to have arrived at that crossroads in her career faced by so many others before her, that moment when a conscious decision is made to leave the blonde bombshell associations behind and head for more respectable brunette pastures. Or perhaps she was just in the mood for a change. Either way, the once and future Grey’s Anatomy star turned up to the Los Angeles premiere of her new movie The Ugly Truth with a new set of auburn locks. (Whether it will help or hinder her a...

Michelle Watch: It’s A Bob!

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, July 27, 2009, In : Celebrities 


Those J.Crew cardi sets and the Jason Wu inaugural gown may have made headlines, but this right here is front-page news if we’ve ever seen it: The First Lady has appeared to cut her hair, foregoing the increasingly popular "lob" in favor of a shorter, more conservative version of Posh Spice’s early trips to the chopping block. While the look becomes the First Lady (there are few things that couldn’t), we are a little disappointed with what seems to be a move toward the more traditiona...
