Jerry Hall and Georgia May Jagger via Into the Gloss
Jerry Hall and daughter Georgia May Jagger talked red lips, expensive skin care, and bringing a laptop into the bathroom with Into the Gloss. Just like most mothers would do given the opportunity, Jerry shared her opinion on at least one style decision that she wished her daughter hadn't made: Piercing her ears with safety pins. Georgia May's response was naturally, "You won't let that go!" What they did agree on was the importance of steam and a washcloth to their skin care routine and that Georgia May's decision not to get braces was a good one. [Into the Gloss]
· Turkish Airlines has banned red lipstick and red nail polish, telling flight attendants to be "artless and well groomed, with makeup in pastel tones."

· At the launch of "No. 5 Culture Chanel" exhibit in Paris, the origin of one of the world's most iconic fragrances was celebrated with the ghosts of Chanel campaigns past.
