Celebrities don’t need Paris Couture Week or an award show to wow in the beauty department.
Give A-listers like Cara Delevingne, Charlize Theron and Rihanna a summer movie premiere and they’ll deliver with major hair and make-up inspiration.
From The Atomic Blonde screening in Berlin and the Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets debut in Hollywood to the streets of New York, the past few days have already been filled with enough glam ideas to see us through the rest of summer.
Below, we detail our favorites and offer tips you can use to copy them at home.
If anyone has had more fun with a shaved hairstyle than Cara Delevingne, 24, has been having since buzzing her head back in April, we haven’t seen it.
The model-turned-actress went basically bald for her role in the upcoming film Life in a Year and has turned up with the most incredible hair looks at every subsequent red carpet.
Mara’s latest creation for the star, however, might be her best yet. She crafted a blonde and metallic hair sculpture that Cara wore to the premiere of her film Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. It complemented her Iris Van Herpen silver gown so much that it almost looked as though it was an extension of the dress.
‘I vividly remember learning to fingerwave some 15 years ago,’ Mara wrote of the look on Instagram. ‘It takes patience to get perfect but is so worth the process. I wanted the piece to feel like a kind of armor, like a shining helmet over her shaved head.’
Rihanna, 29, joined co-star Cara on the Valerian carpet at the TCL Chinese Theater in Hollywood.
The Work singer makes a brief but reportedly stand-out appearance in the sci-fi film.
Her poufy, off-the-shoulder Millenial pink Giambattista Valli Couture gown and lace-up Manolo Blahnik heels also made her stand out at the premiere.
While her high-low tulle dress may have been complicated, her hair and make-up acted as a simple, unfussy counterpart.
Proving yet again that ponytails can work for fancy occasions, celebrity hairstylist Yusef slicked back RiRi’s strands into a cheerleader-esque high pony at the top of her head and kept the ends wavy. For similar texture try Verb Sea Texture Cream and add shine with Vernon Francois Light-Weight Styling Serum.
Presumably using Rihanna’s upcoming Fenty Beauty line, make-up artist Mylah Morales matched Ri’s eyeshadow and lips with the petal pink of her dress. Until Fenty Beauty launches, try Nyx Professional Ultimate Multi-Finish Shadow Palette in Sugar High and MAC Lip Duo in Mehr for your own pretty-in-pink look.
Kendall Jenner, 21, was also at the Valerian premiere.
To go with her black, off-the-shoulder Carmen March minidress, Kendall wore one of the most natural hair and make-up styles we’ve seen her in lately, and absolutely killed it.
Make-up artist Mary Phillips subtly contoured the model’s cheeks and gave her a hint of a cat eye with black liquid liner like Estée Lauder Double Wear Zero Smudge Liquid Eyeliner before painting her lips a soft pink shade.
Hairstylist Jen Atkin said on Instagram that she broke out her hot rollers (she used T3 Voluminous Hot Rollers) for the event – a move that resulted in Kendall’s soft, voluminous curls with flipped-out ends.
Even Kendall’s mom Kris Jenner liked the look. ‘Why is she so cute??? #beautifulinsideandout #proudmama #love,’ she wrote on Instagram.
Charlize Theron gave off modern-day Marilyn Monroe vibes at the premiere of her film Atomic Blonde in Berlin on Monday.
While her all white outfit – a matching bra top and high-waisted mini skirt from Christian Dior – were far from classic, Old Hollywood glamour, the actress’ hair, make-up and nails certainly hit peek Marilyn notes.
The 41-year-old actress and Dior ambassador paired her wavy platinum blonde bob with a bright red lipstick courtesy of make-up artist Francesca Tolot and matching manicure.
Who needs a runway or a red carpet when the streets of New York City are your catwalk?
Bella Hadid, 20, showed off a fresh new haircut while out and about in lower Manhattan yesterday.
The crop, which is about three inches shorter than her hair had been, comes to just above the model’s shoulders and below her chin. It’s layered, which makes for easy movement, and the shorter length has got to feel good in the sticky hot weather.
