We Tried It: Four MAC Celebrity Lipsticks, From Kelly Osbourne's Lavender to Lorde's Dark Purple

Jun/05/2014 at 05:56 PM ET

We get pretty excited when MAC announces a new celebrity collaboration. So this week we (we being, from left, style news editor Alex Apatoff, writer/reporter Jackie Fields and associate style editor Brittany Talarico) decided to test out four new star lipstick collaborations by the brand. From Lorde’s dramatic “Pure Heroine” to Kelly Osbourne’s polarizing light purple shade and Rihanna‘s very-glam red, we decked our pouts (and polled the office!) to find out our faves. Check out the photos, below, along with our reviews and our ratings, from 1 (would never wear again) to 10 (we plan to wear this every day).

Gisele Bündchen Is the New Face of Chanel No. 5

What do Brad Pitt and Gisele Bündchen have in common? (Besides their bronzed, tawny beauty, super-hot spouses and glamorous jet-setting careers, of course.) They will both have fronted ad campaigns for Chanel No. 5. The supermodel is taking over for the actor as the face of the famous fragrance, according to reports.

Bündchen has been a face of Chanel beauty for more than a year now, most recently appearing in ads for the line’s Les Beiges cosmetics. And now, WWD reports, the model has filmed an ad for the scent in Sagaponack, N.Y. with A-list director Baz Luhrmann (who also directed Nicole Kidman’s 2005 spot for Chanel No. 5). According to Chanel, Bündchen was tapped for her “natural beauty and modern femininity,” WWD says.

The ad won’t arrive until later this year but we’re sincerely hoping it’s in the vein of Pitt’s black-and-white, deeply philosophical ad from last year. Nothing would be better than watching Bündchen ponder the meaning of life while being directed by the master of whimsy, Baz Luhrmann.

What do you think of the model’s new gig? What do you hope to see from the ad?

You might have been too distracted by her dramatic Oriett Domenech gown (or her super-toned legs during this duet performance with Miranda Lambert) to notice that there was something different about Carrie Underwood at the Billboard Music Awards. The singer’s hair is now a darker shade of blonde. (And if you did notice, congratulations: You’re a pro celebrity hair change spotter.) Read More

Zoë Saldana's Surprising DIY Hair Secrets: Steal Them Now!

Zoe Saldana hair tips Chica magazineAnthony Harvey/FilmMagic

Zoë Saldana may have all the best hair stylists and makeup pros at her disposal (she is one of the gorgeous spokesmodels for L’Oréal Paris), but the star still turns to DIY beauty tricks to keep her strands healthy.

In the debut issue of Chica Magazine (which lives as insert in People En Español‘s 50 Most Beautiful issue out now!), the actress shares that her mom gave her a book of recipes for healthy hair and skin. “Everything was organic and stuff that we already had in the kitchen,” she tells Chica.

So what did she learn? Read a list of her favorite DIY beauty treatments below.

Avocado hair mask: “Overripe avocados are perfect. You mash them up with a little olive oil, and let the mixture sit on your hair for 30 minutes. It makes me hungry, so I usually end up rinsing it out too soon.”

White vinegar for shine: “Once a month I rinse my hair with white vinegar and warm water to restore the pH balance to my strands.”

Homemade Sun-In: “I did this as a girl when I was living in the Dominican Republic. You soak hair with rum, then go out in the sun.”

For red highlights: “Apply a mix of equal parts beet juice and lemon juice to your hair, then sit in the sun. You get stunning reddish highlights.”

Olive oil for the ends: “Put your hair in a ponytail and blot a bit of olive oil on the ends. Your hair just sucks in all that moisture.”

With her new film Grace of Monaco opening the Cannes Film Festival Wednesday — and with last year’s unbelievable Cannes style streak behind her — we knew Nicole Kidman was going to bring her fashion A-game to this year’s opening night festivities. And she delivered as expected. From day to night, she kept things sophisticated and stately — we bet Grace Kelly would have been impressed.

Blake Lively Wears the Holy Grail of Braids at Cannes (Plus, See Her Gucci Gown from Every Angle)

It’s true: We relish a Blake Lively red carpet cameo. And lucky for us (and all you other Blake style enthusiasts out there), we just got our second “Wow” moment of the month. After making jaws drop in a sequin champagne-hued Gucci Première gown at the Met Gala, the star is at it again in another head-turning design by the label.

Lively kicked off the Cannes Film Festival at the Grace of Monaco premiere in a oxblood chiffon dress featuring a thigh-high slit and open back detailing. (See it in motion at left!) And while it’s no surprise the face of Gucci fragrances is often dressed in their designs, we’re still always mesmerized by how perfectly they fit her. She accessorized with ruby-and-diamond Lorraine Schwartz statement earrings and gold Casadei sandals.

“Lorraine Schwartz made the most amazing earrings ever,” Lively told PEOPLE. “She actually made them for the Met, but we ended up thinking they would look better with this dress so we saved them for Cannes.”

Probably more captivating than the dress? Her long messy braid. From the front it looks like a basic slicked back pony, but from the back the mega-plait can be studied in all its glory. It’s a really fun formal braid look (though for a daytime style, we love Lively’s fishtail.)

Naturally, the face of L’Oréal Paris had an on-point beauty look as well — an allover bronze glow, heavily-lined smoky eye and nude lips. Really the only thing missing is her hot husband Ryan Reynolds on her arm. What do you think of Lively’s look? Does it top her Met Gala moment? Is she the Queen of Cannes so far?
