Behind the Scenes with MAC and Gossip's Beth Ditto

I'll never forget the first time I saw the Gossip years ago. If we're being honest with one another (and aren't we always), I didn't know WHAT to make of Beth Ditto, the frontwoman and a big girl gone LOUD. The band's evolved a lot in the many years since, and Beth herself has become an indisputable fashion and beauty icon of sorts, a fact reiterated by her current collaboration with MAC Cosmetics.

Beth Ditto and the Gossip at Terminal 5 last month. Follow me on for more snaps!

Available now through July 19, the Beth Ditto collection features several eye products, including the all new Shade & Smoke Shadow/Liners, dual-ended pairings of Eye Shadow and Greasepaint Liner ideal for achieving a perfect smoky eye, along with an assortment of bold and neutral Pro Longwear Lipcremes and three creamy nail Nail Lacquers. With polished punk sensibility and shades ranging from tender to tart - be sure to pick up Dear Diary if you're in the market for a big, bold pink this season - the collection is unadulterated Beth Ditto, and fans will love!
