As fall approaches, there has been lots of publicity about some high-end makeup launches by prestigious fashion designers, such as Michael Kors' Sexy, Sporty and Glam collections (available at Macy's and michaelkors.com ) and Marc Jacobs' 120-piece cosmetics collection (available at Sephora and marcjacobs.com ). Both collections went on sale this month, to much fanfare. But another notable cosmetics collection also launched this summer, a bit more quietly. It's from renowned makeup artist Pati Dubroff , whose celebrity clientele has included Katy Perry, Jessica Alba, Gwyneth Paltrow, Julianne Moore, Charlize Theron and Drew Barrymore.

After 16 years at the helm of Coach, Reed Krakoff left the American heritage brand this fall to chart a solo course with his own label, which is starting to really gain momentum. In the three years since launching his namesake brand, Krakoff has dressed Lena Dunham, Julianne Moore and First Lady Michelle Obama, who wore his cobalt blue dress on the March 2013 cover of Vogue. He has a robust accessories business (the Boxer and Atlantique bags have been big hits), which accounts for about 70% of sales, and his ready-to-wear clothing is gaining momentum among women looking for something intellectual, modern and American.

There's the voluptuous come-hither trappings of Rita Hayworth and cartoon sex bomb Jessica Rabbit; the comedic zaniness of Lucille Ball, Debra Messing, Carrot Top and Conan O'Brien; and the girl-next-door sweetness of '80s film princess Molly Ringwald. There's even a template for the icy redhead a la Marcia Cross and Julianne Moore. For all of these famous folks, it could be said that red hair is part of their brand. Naturally red hair is a rare commodity.
