This week’s best beauty Instagrams offered lessons in the arts of slowing down, dressing up, and—of course—selfie-snapping. The latter came by way of Karlie Kloss—whose coats of mascara and metallic shadow played up her aquamarine eyes—and Ajak Deng, who proved that buttery skin, an unwavering gaze, and an artful lazy-day pose combine to create the perfect auto-portrait. The Save Venice Un Ballo in Maschera provided a welcome excuse for the kind of exuberant dressing up often reserved for the holidays: Lily Aldridge paired gilded, foliage-inspired earrings with a cascading crown of crimson blooms, while Sofía Sanchez de Betak pulled out all the stops with matte bordeaux lips, bejeweled eyes, and a golden topper inspired by the headpiece Karl Lagerfeld crafted for Elizabeth Taylor’s role in 1968’s Boom!
The chill-out camp was headed up by Kate Hudson, who celebrated her birthday with a girlfriend group meditation that showcased sisterhood, serenity, and some great pedicures. Sasha Luss paused for a bit of golden-tinged reflection alongside a coordinated canine companion—her mussed half topknot will serve as inspiration for our next outdoor endeavor—while elsewhere, Poppy Delevingne prepared to take to the skies in a rose-hued helicopter that perfectly mirrored her mane. Because when it comes to unexpected accessories, you may as well match.
