GLAM SCOOP: OPI’s Latest Collab, Cara Delevingne for Topshop and 60% Off at Nordstrom
What a summer it’s been already! In the past month, I’ve been to Vegas (more on this later) and the Bahamas, and I’m gearing up for the highlight of the season: the 20th anniversary of Essence Fest in New Orleans! We’re hosting an event with some big sponsors and I can’t wait to share deets with you guys. Stay tuned. In the meantime, let’s get into the latest fashion and beauty news, mkay?
Tamron Hall Rocks Her Natural Hair on “The Today Show”
Call me corny, but I still get excited every time a celebrity debuts their natural curly hair and looks absolutely beautiful doing it. Tamron Hall of “The Today Show” is the latest to let her curls breathe and I can’t get enough of her pretty TWA.
She rocked her curly ‘do this morning for two reasons: one, she didn’t have time to blow dry and flat iron her hair and two, she made a promise to Curly Nikki. No matter the reason, we couldn’t be more obsessed with her look. What do you think, Glamazons? [Today]
Kelis for Grey Ant Sunglasses
Why does Kelis slay my life so effortlessly…and regularly? She’s the unsung hero of fashion from her colorful ‘fro to her half-shaved head (before it was cool) to her current style: long flowing Rapunzel-worthy black locks. I see the “Jerk Ribs” singer’s style changes and furiously take notes (and apparently, so does the rest of the music industry but I’m minding my business!). Anyway, the fashion industry is finally giving Kelis her due as a trendsetter and style maven with a spokesperson deal with Grey Ant. The singer poses for their new campaign topless and in a turtleneck, with big 60s-esque hair, heavy liner and nude lipstick. She looks incredible.
The collaboration actually came about organically as Kelis told ELLE: “One of my best friends works for Grey Ant, so when she called me, it was basically a no-brainer. You don’t say no to your dearest friend. But I’m so glad I got involved, because when I got to the photo shoot, I saw what they had planned-these incredible wigs, this totally ’60s makeup. It was really cool.”
She also revealed her love for wigs, saying: “Why [go blonde] when you can use a wig? Some people get a little nervous about them, I guess, but why? Go for the wig. Don’t be afraid.” She added: “I kept the wigs [from the Grey Ant shoot]. They’re coming on tour!”
A girl after my own heart. [Elle]
Beyonce Wears Versace and Diesel for On The Run Tour
The highly-anticipated On The Run tour kicked off last night in Miami, and Jay Z and Beyonce gave the crowd a show they’d never forget. Performing hits like “Crazy in Love,” “Forever Young” and “’03 Bonnie and Clyde,” the duo also revealed never-before-seen pictures from their 2008 wedding, footage of them getting their matching “IV” tattoos on their ring fingers and flicks of them playing with daughter Blue Ivy in their private home.
The video (below) just made us melt:
Beyonce also revealed a whole new wardrobe which included a custom-made Atelier Versace black sequined bodysuit with plunging neckline and matching balaclava as well as an Atelier Versace bodysuit covered in a multicolor print from Versace‘s Pre-Fall 2014 collection:
She also rocked a Diesel jumpsuit replete with a leather cap with gold metal detailing and a matching belt:
Gorgeous! Can’t wait to see what costumes she adds for their 16-city tour. What do you think of these two looks so far? [Versace Instagram/Glamazons Blog Mail]
Rihanna Covers Harper’s Bazaar of Arabia
Rihanna looks mesmerizing on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar of Arabia. The superstar poses for an editorial feature called “The New Modesty: How To Cover Up In Style,” which is pretty ironic given all the criticism for her revealing Adam Selman gown at the CFDA Awards. She loves to keep us guessing!
We’re not sure when the issue hits newsstands but we’re counting down the days. Are you into this shoot, Glamazons? [MTV Style]

Cara Delevingne for Topshop
We knew something was up when Cara Delevingne was spotted hanging out at the Kate Moss for Topshop launch. We were right! The supermodel was tapped as the new face of the UK-based brand, making her debut in the Fall 2014 campaign. She will star in Topshop‘s print and outdoor ads as well as in-store graphics. Can’t wait to see the campaign! I’m sure her BFF Kate is proud. [Vogue UK]
Alexa Chung Teams Up with AG Adriano Goldschmied
The collaborations are pouring in for Alexa Chung. On the heels of her Nails, Inc. collection, Alexa is teaming up with AG Adriano Goldschmied for two denim collections through Fall 2015. The line will include 20 pieces, ranging from $70-$300. Expect jeans, overalls, denim dresses, blouses, high-waisted shorts, a denim jacket and sweatshirt — all inspired by, get this, ’90s Versace. Alexa calls the line “the missing pieces of her dream denim wardrobe.” This should be interesting! We’re here for it. [Fashionista]
