The women in this week’s roundup stuck to one theme: sleek strands and a cat eye. And why not? There is little reason to stray too far when a beauty look has hit upon a good thing. Actress Li Bingbing and model Erin O’Connor played into a feminine-meets-masculine androgyny with slicked-back bangs, neutral brown lids and pale lips that cast a strong sex appeal. While leading ladies Kerry Washington and Olivia Munn gave the theme a sweet touch, with Washington’s bouncy ponytail and Munn’s gorgeous violet wings. Chinese superstar Huo Siyan delivered perhaps the most stunning variation on the hair and makeup pairing, however, wearing a polished side part that cascaded into soft waves, a bold brow, a golden smoky eye and a saturated crimson smile that was every bit the definition of pure elegance.
