How Nicola Peltz Beckham Transformed Into Dorothy Stratten for Hulu’s ‘Welcome to Chippendales’

Published

on

When we’re first introduced to Nicola Peltz Beckham as Dorothy Stratten for Hulu’s Welcome to Chippendales, it’s Friday night in late ’70s West Hollywood, and she’s arriving at the mirrored space that’s soon to become an infamously oversexed club. All in white, with blonde brushed-out waves swept into a hair comb, she orders a pink squirrel cocktail from the bar. What’s immediately striking is Peltz Beckham’s uncanny resemblance to Stratten, the very real, very beloved model and actress whose life came to a disturbing end.

There’s nothing extreme about her onscreen beauty; it’s soft, it’s glamorous, and it’s surprisingly relevant in today’s revival world (Peltz Beckham has said that she “loves” Stratten and that her husband Brooklyn Beckham found her stylish). So, it’s no wonder that the team behind the Emmy-winning makeup and Emmy-nominated hairstyling for Pam & Tommy had a hand in such a considered character transformation. “In all of my research, it was clear how kind, caring, and humble Dorothy Stratton was,” says lead hair designer Barry Lee Moe. “Although I was recreating a lot of looks that were based on actual hairstyles she wore, I wanted to execute them with the same softness that Dorothy embodied. Her story is extremely tragic, and I wanted to honor the beauty that existed in her life.” 

Makeup department head David Williams agrees, noting that he, Moe, and costume designer Peggy Schnitzer had discussions of how Peltz Beckham should be presented in character every time she was onscreen. “Dorothy Stratton was known to be one of the most beautiful women of her day and was poised to have a remarkable Hollywood career,” Williams says. “Consistency was key. I didn’t want anything to be distracting.” Unlike their work together on Pam & Tommy, no prosthetics were required beyond the wigs that Moe prepared daily for quick application in the trailer, which meant that the entire process only took about 45 minutes with the pair working in tandem. 

Mornings on set often featured a VIP breakfast order before lights were dimmed low and a candle was lit to create a zen setting. “We loved to talk about Dorothy as we looked at all of her photos that surrounded my station—we also loved our morning smoothies that Brooklyn so thoughtfully delivered,” Moe says. The trailer was stocked with Unite hair products, like 7 Seconds Leave-In Conditioner, used to prep Peltz Beckham’s real hair before applying the wig, and Lé:Play Hairspray, misted on for setting the final style. The inspiration for that first scene “was Dorothy’s actual look from the Playboy event where Hugh Hefner announced her as Playmate of the Year,” Moe says. “It’s my favorite look by far. I love how the hair is delicately swept up on the side with a beaded, floral hair comb to hold it in place—our costume designer, Peggy Schnitzer, custom-built her hair accessories to match the original.”

Jennifer Lawrence Paired a Cinched-Waist Dress With the Sparkliest Choker

Published

on

By day, Jennifer Lawrence is a flat-shoe, straight-leg-jeans, and tee kind of woman. Come nighttime, she amps up the glamour. The Dior gown she wore to the Gotham Awards on November 28—which featured an elegant scooped neckline, thin straps, a cinched waist, and a voluminous skirt—was nothing short of charming. 

While her Manhattan style is distinctly relaxed, Lawrence served Old Hollywood glamour in her sculptural dress, which she accessorized with a diamond choker and red lipstick, as she presented the best-feature award.

Given that she’s a Dior ambassador, Lawrence often consults the brand for the red carpet. Earlier this month she had a floral moment at the Governors Awards in a dress from Maria Grazia Chiuri’s spring-summer 2023 collection. And at the Toronto Film Festival in September, Jennifer Lawrence picked a diaphanous sheer autumn-winter 2022 couture gown to wear to the premiere of Causeway.

Crystals, Cowboy Hats, Durags, and Dinner Jackets: Guests Went All Out at Born x Raised’s Annual Sadie Hawkins Winter Formal

Published

on

For one of the biggest bashes of the year, the annual Born x Raised Sadie Hawkins Winter Formal has always maintained an IYKYK vibe, and this year was no different. Hundreds of people, all of whom somehow seemed to know each other, turned out in their finest duds to attend the function, which the brand’s cofounder Chris “Spanto” Printup describes as “a wedding meets a bar mitzvah meets a quinceañera.” 

Wearing a Grace Jones–inspired suit embellished with pieces from Diné (Apache) jeweler Lionel Thundercloud, Printup set the dress code for the night, which was held at DTLA’s Soho Warehouse. “People in Los Angeles want to dress up, and they don’t always get to,” said Born x Raised’s Alex “2Tone” Erdmann as he mingled with guests on the rooftop pool deck. “They have all these wonderful outfits and really show out and get dressed to the nines.” That said, attendees had been warned in advance that the dress code was strictly no streetwear and “if you show up in a Born x Raised hoodie, you will be tarred and feathered at the door.”  

The night kicked off with a dinner sponsored by Nike, which collaborated on a limited-edition Air Force 1 Low sneaker to mark the occasion. But what was billed as an intimate dinner for 100 people steadily multiplied over the evening, with guests sharing both their seats and plates of wild arugula salad and sea bass as each wave of new friends arrived. 

Among those in attendance for the pre-party cocktails and dinner were Danny Trejo, Miguel, Nadia Lee Cohen, Freddie Gibbs, Kirsty Godso, YG, and Mister Cartoon. “I had to come as the black James Bond this year,” said Gibbs as he lined up to have a prom-style portrait taken by photographer Carlos Jaramillo—a highlight of the event. “I always have to come as the best dressed at the Sadie Hawkins. You just gotta stay dapper at all times.” 

Created in 2013, Born x Raised’s founders describe the brand as a love letter to their hometown, eschewing the city’s influencer culture in favor of people who power the real LA, and the party as a celebration of its creative community. “When I grew up in LA, it was a huge melting pot for all different cultures,” Printup told Vogue. “That’s what we’re re-creating with everyone here in this room. It’s the most well-rounded mix, and it’s the party I want to be at.”

Lucy Boynton Debuts Her New Red Hair for the Holidays

Published

on

Why wait until the new year for an aesthetic overhaul? For a makeover primed for holiday wear, look to Lucy Boynton, who traded her signature blonde chop last week for a gingered take on the year’s primary color trend: red. The actor debuted the burnished shade at a London screening of The Pale Blue Eye, with her pin-straight copper lengths pulled into a low-slung flip knot made sleeker for its center part.

Colorists Mark William Selley and Halley Brisker created the dimensional color, which felt all the more effulgent when secured with a gilded accessory in the back. The standout moment was rounded out by Boynton’s usual artistically driven, ‘60s-inspired eyes (separated lashes, well-placed rhinestones, and swipes of onyx), feathered brows, and a pink lip executed by makeup Jo Baker. Should the last lap of the year find you in something of a rut, make like Boynton and embrace that “New Year, New Me” mentality early.
