Beauty Notes From the CFDA Awards
W’s Beauty Director Jane Larkworthy on last night’s hair and makeup hits.
Best makeup looks
Leelee Sobieski: “Something about that white suit, Jil Sander-meets-Lauren Bacall hair-do and red lips was most excellent.”
Kerry Washington: “Either she’s madly in love or she’s got the best facialist in the world. With delicately smoked lids and a natural lip shade, perfection.”
Naomi Watts: “Look up fresh-faced in the dictionary, and there she is. I’d like to guess those sun-kist cheeks are courtesy of Nars’ Orgasm blush…?”
Sofia Coppola: “This woman should be a poster child for staying out of the sun, as well as an illustrative example that un-tanned skin is beautiful.”
Karolina Kurkova: “With that hooded dress and shimmery complexion, she was like a paler Grace Jones.”
Amy Astley’s bangs: “Whether the rest of her hair length is a shorter Dutchboy length or longer, as it is now, she wears bangs the best.”
Maggie Rizer: “Her loose (yet, clearly styled) waves brought to mind a modern Rita Hayworth.”
