Fashion Week may be over but don’t expect Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld to be flying under the radar anytime soon. The multitasker of all multitaskers has turned his leather-gloved hand to something else: a 17-piece makeup collection with Japanese beauty brand Shu Uemura.The holiday range includes everything from lipstick to nail art to false lashes and is a “celebration of Japanese pop and European chic.” Plus—cover you ears, Choupette!—there’s a new muse in town. Lagerfeld’s “Mon Shu Girl” sketch (see right) serves as the line’s artistic inspiration. Her image graces all of the packaging and she even has her own promotional video. The entire collection will be available on Shu Uemera’s site beginning October 22. Click through the gallery to see all the products!

Like Olivia Wilde and Dakota Fanning before her, Brooklyn Decker also chose to go darker this fall, debuting brown strands at last night’s God’s Love We Deliver 2012 Golden Hearts Awards Gala in New York City. “It hasn’t been brown in a long time,” she said. “I was really bored and just decided to go brown.” For the dye job, she called upon hairstylist pal Michael Angelo and made a stop at his Wonderland Beauty Parlor. “I’ve been going to him for years and he’s so much fun and has a great place,” Decker told InStyle.com. “It took maybe two or three hours. There were several steps. I’m sure my hair smells like lovely chemicals right now!” Tell us: Do you like her new hue?

Sarah Jessica Parker always looks pretty and polished on the red carpet—and that includes her gorgeous mane. The Glee guest star stepped out at this year’s amFAR Inspiration Gala in Los Angeles with long, shiny waves, which perfectly topped off her vintage Chanel jumpsuit. We caught up with SJP’s hairstylist, Adir Abergel, to get the inside scoop on recreating the effortless wave. He suggests that you start with damp, towel-dried hair and work Fekkai Coiff Bouffant Lifting and Texturizing Spray Gel ($25, fekkai.com) through the roots for a natural-looking lift. To achieve a bouncy finish, blow-dry hair completely with a large round brush. Then, using a one-inch barrel iron, curl small sections, focusing on the face-framing pieces. Next, run fingers through ringlets and flat iron the ends. To finish the look, apply a moisturizing cream to the ends and mist with hairspray for all-night hold.

Alessandra Ambrosio has earned the honor of modeling this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fantasy Bra, which was created by London Jewelers and is worth an impressive $2.5 million! The Floral Fantasy bra is handset with amethysts, rubies, and sapphires as well as white, pink, and yellow diamonds—all set in 18 karat rose and yellow gold. But the most awe-inspiring rock is the 20-carat white diamond that sits front and center inside the blossom on the blingy brassiere. There’s also a coordinating belt that boasts more than 5,200 precious stones. The gems were selected after a thorough inspection of more than 15,000 from around the world. And while the mother of two has big cups, er shoes, to fill—Miranda Kerr was the lucky Angel who sauntered down last year’s runway in the coveted multimillion-dollar creation—genetically-blessed Ambrosio shouldn’t be too worried. The bombshell told InStyle.com that she started working out just two months after the birth of her son, Noah Phoenix, back in May. We can’t wait to see Alessandra Ambrosio strut her stuff in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, which airs December 4th at 10 p.m. EST on CBS!
