Kate Middleton’s Blow-out Habit, Revealed; Zombie Boy Gets A Makeup Contract; And More…


The latest face of Dermablend, the L’Oréal-owned line of complexion enhancers with incredible coverage, is Rick Genest—better known as the Nicola Formichetti muse Zombie Boy. The heavily inked Genest refers to his tattoos as “[his] project,” which isn’t quite completed. “I’ve got a couple of blank spots,” he says. “It develops, you know, with time.” As far as using the product he’s now promoting, the Canadian-born artist admits that he doesn’t really wear concealer, “except in the ads, and some fashion shows.” [WWD]

Ever wonder how the Duchess of Cambridge’s hair looks so perfectly bouncy and straight, no matter where she’s being photographed? The answer is regular blow-outs—three of them a week.

We’re not going to pretend that we had any serious plans to go see Pixar’s new movie Brave, but this detail may have changed our mind: the lead character, Merida, a young red-headed Scottish lass, boasts hair made up of 1,500 individually sculpted curves, distinct points in a three-dimensional space, which are programmed to bounce and interact in relation to one another via a new software system. “Another software program was created to make the hair react more realistically to the character’s movements and surroundings,” according to Pixar. And the intrigue mounts. [WSJ]
