Once again we were spoilt for choice when it came to finding the week's best beauty looks. After much careful consideration we narrowed it down to our top five, which includes a beautiful old Hollywood hair and makeup look from Kate Winslet at the premiere of Titanic 3D, a fashion-forward eyeliner look from January Jones, a flawless French complexion courtesy of Melanie Laurent and a couple of hot party looks from two of our favourite Aussie beauties. Take a closer look.
In more fancy French fragrance signings news — we told you about Benjamin Millepied pirouetting his way to a YSL Homme fragrance deal earlier this morning — Mélanie Laurent is the new face of Dior Hypnotic Poison, which has previously been fronted by fellow YSL Homme ambassador Vincent Cassel's wife, Monica Bellucci. Six degrees of separation or what.
The French actress, director, singer and writer — no, there is nothing she can't do — is best known for her award-winning role in Inglourious Basterds and is also set to open this year's Cannes film festival this week. She's one of our Paris Fashion Week front row faves so we can't wait to see the no-doubt mesmerising ad campaign when it bows into stores, even if it looks set to only be on display in Europe. Le sigh. What do you think about the news? Are you excited for Cannes?
The Spring couture shows are currently underway in Paris, which means it's time for star-studded front rows. Anne Hathaway was Giorgio Armani's guest of honour yesterday, though she was able to tear herself away from his runway full of red carpet-worthy gowns long enough to exchange loving glances with her boyfriend Adam Shulman. Anne has a big week ahead of her—she's set to announce the Oscar nominations in LA on February 2. Elsewhere in Paris, Hilary Swank joined Inglourious Basterds's Melanie Laurent at a collection from Etam designed by the model Natalia Vodianova. Yesterday brought Karl Lagerfeld's latest collection for Chanel, which went with a "neon baroque" theme. Pregnant Claudia Schiffer was there to join Alexa Chung and the always attention-grabbing Kanye West and Amber Rose. For more on the fashion front, be sure to stay tuned to Fab.
