Four Beauty (and Hat) Looks to File Away for Winter

Thu, 24 January 2013 12:07PM

I know that, at that mention of the word winter, you probably have your hands over your ears and are singing tra-la-la-la at the top of your voice. I totally get that you want to stretch summer – and its bronzed skin, orange lips, bright eyes and beach hair – out for as long as possible. And the last think I want to do is rain on your sunshiny parade. Or Straya Day spirits.

But it is winter over in Paris and Sundance (where the couture shows and a film festival are going on right now), and some of the celebrity looks there are so fabulous that it would be a crying shame not to showcase them down in this hemisphere.

So, while I’m not expecting us all to pile on the powder and pull on a hat, there’s no harm in starting that winter inspiration board over at Pinterest, right?

And here’s what you should pin to it …

1. Diane Kruger

Okay, so she looks a little like a French schoolgirl, with that pretty little plait poking out from under a beret, tilted just-so.

But lose the Peter Pan-collared pinafore and add a white tee and boyfriend jeans, and you instantly have grown-up Gallic chic. And don’t forget, in winter you need extra help in the glow department. Cue a dash of illuminator in your creamy foundation for extra dewiness, and a splash of shimmer all over the lids.

2. Hailee Steinfeld

She was our One to Watch a while back and we still love spotting her fashion and beauty looks. Including this number. How adorable is the Baker Boy cap, swiveled to the side a little to showcase a sooty slash of black eyeliner?

Meanwhile, her hair was been coiled and loosely pulled around into a twirly bun at one side:

Super-cute. And a great hairstyle (and hat style) to keep in mind on mornings when it’s too miserably cold for hair-washing to seem like a good idea.

3. Laura Bailey

You might remember I recently professed my girl-crush on Laura. This is the reason. She can effortlessly match ultra-chic (the nude nails, the tailored clothes) with breezy boho (a slouchy rasta-ish beret hat, long whimsical waves).

The take-home tip for winter beauty: a brush-over of bronzer will always brighten up your look, no matter how black that look is.

4. AnnaLynne McCord

With that cute little beanie and a pretty flush of pink on the cheeks, the actress looks suitably snow-bunny-ish at the Sundance festival. And I love how her cool makeup tones play up to the theme; a mauve-ish pink on the lips, and a crisp white liner on the inner rim. Just the look I’m going to channel the next time I find myself down Thredbo way, curled up on a sofa and drinking schnapps in front of a crackling fire.

Tell me, Primpers, have I excited you about winter?

Or are you still singing tra-la-la-la at the top of your voice?

    I love hats and I regularly wear them on weekends, they give you such a different look (like being in disguise), makes doing the hair so much easier and not to mention the health benefits of wearing hats in summer :)

    I love Diane’s look! And I have heaps of berets! 😀

    I am not ready for winter just yet, I havent had enough fun in the sun (sensibly, of course).

    Moving to London next Friday, so this is very well-timed, thanks! But I need to know, is there any way to wear a beanie without your foundation rubbing off underneath? Help!

    These ladies all look so good in their hats :) Diane is so chic.
    I can’t stand winter. I really hate the cold :(

    Hi Elayne. How exciting! Have the best time. Re your question – do you need to wear foundation on your forehead? One of the best tips I’ve picked up comes courtesy of Napoleon Perdis, who say that most foreheads are quite even in tone and don’t actually need any coverage. K x

    I love the cool weather mainly because I don’t need to hide from the sun or wear heaps of sunscreen so that I am not burnt but summer has its perks as well, I love Diane Krugers and AnnaLynne McCord looks.

    All these looks look fantastic, however sadly I’m not somebody who looks good in hats… at least I don’t think I do!

    Obsessed with ALM’s beanie! The kitty ears are too cute.

    I love Laura Bailey’s look but I feel a bit silly wearing that hat.I think only a select few can look great in it.

  • Posted by: beautiful87 Master Fan // Sun, 21 April 2013 12:59pm

    this is so cute :)

  • Posted by: talkalot Master Fan // Thu, 27 June 2013 09:08pm

    It’s to jolly cold now, my enthusiasm for Winter has certainly run it’s course.
    I like all of these hats except for Anna’s, not for me.

    I like to wear a hat occasionally, loving these styles. I am not looking forward to winter, I prefer warmer weather.
