It's no secret that Emma Watson's red carpet style is on point—I mean, she wore pants under a backless gown to the 2014 Golden Globes. She's not playing around. What was not so obvious until recently, however, is her equally envious ability to accessorize. We noted her jewelry collection at this year's Oscars, but she's also started accessorizing her hair and, TBH, each style she tries pairs perfectly with her outfit and doesn't overwhelm at all. We bow down.
At last night's London premiere of Noah, Emma wore silver and gold jewels on the right side of her updo. They appeared to be casually thrown in, but they transform a relatively simple look to a sleek one. Hi, perfect prom 2014 hair inspiration.
Unless this is some kind of April Fools joke, Lauren Conrad has taken a purple plunge. I hope it's not a joke—her hair, as always, looks perfect. Like, I want to go to the drugstore right now, buy some purple dye, and color my hair in the bathroom. Sorry the sinks are stained purple, coworkers, but this was a hair emergency—bye boring blonde, hello pretty purple!
It was only a few weeks ago that we were complimenting LC's short, springy 'do and now she's taken the look to an entirely different level. This pastel purple isn't the first unnatural color Lauren has tried out—she's gone both pink and multi-color before—but it's the first time she's committed to having the shade for more than a weekend. In a blog post, she explains that while she normally uses temporary dye, this time she went with semi-permanent, which lasts for six to eight weeks. A bold move, but one I respect (and envy), since it looks so good.
It seems like just yesterday that Lauren Conrad was gracing the cover of Allure and revealing her deepest beauty secrets (JK, it was two days ago!). One such secret involved one of LC's best assets—her hair, of course. "I can't remember the last time I didn't have extensions," she told the magazine. "Extensions are great. And they've come so far in the last few years." We read that and naturally assumed she was just talking about, y'know, the gorgeous hair on her head. But apparently Lauren likes her fake tresses to be pretty AND multifunctional...namely, doubling as makeshift unibrows.
Madonna shows off her armpit.

Madonna has been on a roll this week in the Instagram department. A few days ago, she posted a picture of herself dressed as Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones—complete with miniature dragons on her shoulders—which was, obviously, awesome. And then last night, she posted another eyebrow-raising selfie, this time featuring her beyond fuzzy armpit with the caption "Long hair...... Don't Care!!!!!!" (quite the opposite of Taylor Swift's recent "short hair, don't care" Instagram phenomenon).
It's hard to tell if Madonna's hairy pit is a result of feminism, laziness, or sheer publicity, although her hashtags—#artforfreedom #rebelheart #revolutionoflove—suggest The Queen of Pop is just being her typically anarchistic and too-cool-for-school self. The internet is already semi-exploding over the furry pic, but there actually is quite a long history of female celebs who have dared to expose their unshaved pits.

One Direction's That Moment ad.

Who here wants to smell like creamy musk and cucumbers? Anyone? What if I told you that Harry Styles wants you to smell like that? Probably changes your answer, right? Well, as it turns out...he does. All of One Direction does, in fact, which is why they added those *unique* smells to their upcoming That Moment fragrance line (in addition to cedarwood, violet, and "sparkling tangerine"—yum!). We already knew the line would build on their previous scent, the already successful Our Moment, AND that the perfume bottle would resemble a pink diamond wearing a crown. But the promise of creamy musk is certainly news to us—as is their dreamy, just-released print ad.
Pharrell is teaming up with Comme des Garcons.

Pharrell Williams, the great collaborator, has just added another joint project to his résumé: a unisex fragrance with Comme des Garcons. From Daft Punk to BAPE, he has a knack for bringing established entities into his creative ecosystem and helping bring forth a beautiful, refreshing take on something you already loved. But he's more than just the ultimate remix artist; his collaborative projects are so wildly successful because of his ability to marry his own original creative sensibilities with a keen eye for curation—he knows precisely the best elements of a sound or an aesthetic to elevate. For all of the above reasons, we're SO excited about this forthcoming scent. The only thing we're disappointed about is: We sort of feel like we should have seen this coming.
