Leighton Meester Ups Her Beauty Profile; Naomi Campbell Does Not; And More…


Leighton Meester is gaining ground in the beauty spokesperson game. With an Herbal Essences contract already under her belt, the Gossip Girl star has just signed on as the face of Vera Wang’s forthcoming fragrance. Taylor Swift, watch out. [WWD]

Olay is also looking to woo the twentysomething set with a new round of TV ads to air during the CMAs next week, starring the company’s new face, Carrie Underwood. [WWD]

One celebrity who may not be getting a beauty deal anytime soon is Naomi Campbell. Her former agent is claiming that the supermodel lied under oath about backing out of a previous perfume deal before stiffing said agent on commissions. Three words: bad for business. [The Cut via NYP]

Lovers of fine fragrance, rejoice: Frédéric Malle has a new eau coming out next month that the famed perfumer himself has called his “best ever.” [T]

There’s another new beauty reality show in the works: Mistress Makeover doles out boob jobs and the like to the women implicated in B-list celebrities’ salacious affairs (yes, two of the show’s “stars” allegedly have ties to Tiger Woods). Gross. [BlackBook]

The BBC has been accused of ageism. Well, that’s what you get when you recommend that your TV presenters get Botox to stay one step ahead of HD cameras. [Daily Mail]
