Mary-Kate Olsen graces the cover of july's issue of Elle. i love this girl, i have to say. she has really grown up to be such an icon, not only in the fashion world but in business as well.
for the cover look, Mary-Kate wears an amazing silk chiffon dress by Stella McCartney and belt from Azzedine Allaia, crystal , pearl and oxidized silver necklaces from Tom Binns, and a (huge!) diamond and tigereye pyramid ring from Kara Ross.
what intrigued me most was her hair and makeup. it definitely makes her look a little more mature and chic. hair stylist for the shoot, Harry Josh, described this look as being a little rock and roll, bohemian-chic. kind of like that bedhead, sexy kind of just-rolled-out-of-bed look. very far from the hollywood girl that she really is.
makeup artist Polly Osmond went for a smokey eye
with very dark black, some silvery greys, and lots of mascara (Precision Eye Definer in Noir-Black, Ombre Essentielle Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Ebony, Les Quatre Ombres Quadra Eyeshadow in Sparkling Satins and Inimitable Multi-Dimensional Mascara in Noir-Black, all Chanel), and a pale lip (Rouge Allure Satin Lip Colour in Luminous, and Glossimer Lipgloss in Glaze, also by Chanel).
find a fabulous interview with Mary-Kate as well as fabulous fashion and beauty features, including Christian Siriano's much-anticipated feature.
i was also excited to find out that fellow blogger Erika was quoted in the article, If I Should Dye, an amazing look at at-home haircolor!
