Marilyn, The Mane Event; Fergie’s The New Paula; and More…


As if there were any question, Marilyn Monroe has been named the greatest blonde of all time in a new poll from Clairol Nice ‘N Easy. Grace Kelly, Brigitte Bardot, and Cameron Diaz also made the cut, although seeing as how Marilyn was really a brunette, we’d feel cheated if we were Cam. [Stylist]

We called it earlier this summer; two-toned hair is officially a trend. It’s season-specific, though, so Drew Barrymore, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Rachel Bilson may want to make appointments with their colorists ASAP. [WWD]

And now back to Marilyn. It wasn’t just the screen star’s golden locks that made her a fan favorite. And allegedly, it wasn’t her décolletage either. According to a New Zealand anthropologist, her attractiveness—and female attractiveness in general—is based on a simple hip-to-waist measurement, that being 0.7. A waist measurement that is exactly 70 percent of the hip circumference also happens to define modern-day beauties like Kate Moss, Jessica Alba, and supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio. [Daily Mail]

Luckily, Avon is here for those of us with ratios that aren’t quite up to par. To celebrate its 125th anniversary, the beauty giant is launching Avon Voices, a global online talent search for a female singer with a songwriting competition component that incorporates the theme of empowerment. Fergie—whose Outspoken fragrance just launched under the brand’s guidance—will play judge. Look out, American Idol. [WWD]
