Reading List: Bang Epidemic, Tanning Tights, Celebrity Spokeswomen, Ballet Polish & Scary Publicists

Happy New York Fashion Week! We’re almost too busy running in and out of the office all week for us to read anything but that doesn’t mean you should miss out. Take a look at what we’ll be catching up on in between shows. Don’t forget to follow all our Fashion Week posts this weekend.

  • Liv Tyler and Rachel McAdams are both rocking bangs now in addition to Jessica Biel and Reese Witherspoon, who debuted fringes of their own last week. It’s a bang-epidemic! []
  • There are now tights that will give you a fake tan while you wear them. These tights have patented microfiber tech that slowly adds tan to your legs while you’re wearing them. Despite their strange concept, we’re tempted to actually give them a try this winter. [DailyMail]
  • Nicole Scherzinger is the new face of Herbal Essences. She has beautiful hair, so that makes perfect sense. [People Style Watch]
  • OPI’s new polish line, OPI for the New York City Ballet is out. Unsurprisingly, all five shades are sweet pastels, with pale pinks, lilacs, and one silver glitter. [She Finds]
  • The NY Times profiled famous and slightly terrifying publicist Pierre Rougier, founder of PR Consulting. He’s respected and feared within the fashion industry for his bluntness, fierce protectiveness of clients, and temper. [NYTimes]

You might have heard that our office is moving! Woop, woop! But, before we get to the new digs, we have some unfinished business. Namely, our reading list. Here’s what was going on while we packed up our beauty closet this week.

  • BellaSugar has all the deets on a pair of LED glasses that read your mind (really!) and display the emotion you’re feeling at that moment. Our faces usually do the talking for us anyway, but these might be a bit too revealing!
  • Givenchy + Liv Tyler = breathtaking. That’s the takeaway from Givenchy’s Fall/Winter beauty campaign. See the ad on Beauty High.
  • Of course we’ve been keeping an eye on Kate, Duchess of Windsor’s outfits all week as she traipsed (only joking, princesses don’t traipse) across North America with Wills. Now we have a royal fragrance to look forward to as well. alerted us to fragrance company, House of Creed’s new frangrance, Royal Oud. It will be released in October but the couple get to try it out before anyone else, tomorrow at the Santa Barbara Polo Club.
  • Also this week? Couture shows! Allure breaks down the perfect smoky eye at the Chanel show.
  • In case you’re getting married this summer, attending a few, or just like having pretty hair, you may want to take a look at Refinery29’s ideas for updated styles.
