The latest news on the celebrity spokesperson front: Clé de Peau Beauté, Shiseido’s high-end brand for all things skin perfecting, has just announced that its global brand ambassador will be Amanda Seyfried. This is a first for the Japanese cosmetics giant, which has relied on hand-picked models to properly showcase its range of gorgeous, high-performance color and skincare products in the past. (Hardcore Shiseido fans will remember when the brand plucked fresh-faced catwalker Patricia Schmid to front the visuals for its 2006 color collection, in one of the more gorgeous model-makeup pairings in recent memory.) To be honest, we knew a cosmetics contract was coming for Seyfried, but we assumed it would be for hair, not makeup, as the Dear John, Mamma Mia, and Mean Girls star is known for her long, tawny locks. That ivory skin of hers is also something to behold, though. What do you think of the appointment?
Continuing its reign over red-carpet beauty looks, the side braid showed up in L.A. last night at the premiere of Letters to Juliet, where the film’s star, Amanda Seyfried, sported a messy, loose, over-the-shoulder incarnation of the increasingly popular style (and worked side-swept bands into the equation, to boot). Here’s where things got a little tricky: Rather than pair the casual coif with natural makeup, Seyfried went with a heavy-handed approach, choosing a very dark black-rimmed eye and a muted brick lip for the occasion. Too much sultry face-painting for such a sweet hairdo? Let us know, below.
The “beauty from the inside” craze that has seen a spike in sales of beauty-enhancing supplements and nutritional drinks may just be a good marketing ploy aimed at the upwardly mobile. “People with disposable income to spend on vitamins, who are interested in their health and well-being, these are the people who need them the least,” says Marion Nestle, a professor of nutrition, food studies, and public health at New York University, adding that it is very difficult to gauge improved dermatological health in people who already practice good skin habits.

If you thought Jennifer Aniston’s Lolavie fragrance name was questionable, get a load of this: Mariah Carey’s new eau will be called Lollipop Bling. True story. [Scented Salamander]
Amanda Seyfried would chop off her glorious, golden locks for a movie, but the role would have to be “worth it,” she says in the latest issue of InStyle Hair. So, yea or nay to any forthcoming Twiggy biopics? [StyleList]
The Aramis and Designer Fragrances division of Estée Lauder is getting hip to the now and launching a new fragrance app called Ascent. It uses aromachology, psychographics, and kinesthetics to guide interested parties through a series of questions and images in search of a perfect fragrance match. Test blotters may soon be obsolete.

Congratulations, Iggy Pop—you’ve been voted the world’s “worst face,” according to a new survey from the U.K.’s Good Surgeon Guide. Still, that’s kind of punk, right? [Telegraph]
Can Swiss apple stem cells make the transition from luxury and mass skincare products to makeup? Yes, in fact they can. The ingredient apparently stimulates stem cell activity in eyelash follicles, causing faster, stronger hair growth, making it a perfect fit for—you guessed, it—mascara. [Independent]
It may not be Cannes, but with a larger-than-usual crop of real-deal A-listers walking the red carpet for their respective premieres this weekend, Robert De Niro’s onetime small downtown film festival is now officially a “very big deal.” Among the starlets out in Tribeca on Sunday was Amanda Seyfried, who, in support of her new project Letters to Juliet, took a few cues from the high-hair Fall runway spectaculars and gave her stylist clearance to go crazy with the teasing comb. While Seyfried’s textured French twist may look simple from the front, it’s actually quite complicated, with three ridges carved out by bobby pins and a thin black elastic headband to add dimension. That, in combination with a really tasteful smoky cat-eye—achieved with a pale, precise wash of charcoal shadow—made the whole look an on-trend winner in our book. Yours, too?
Ever since the trailer for Atom Egoyan’s new erotic thriller Chloe hit the Web, people have been buzzing about the film’s rather steamy scenes between leading ladies Julianne Moore and Amanda Seyfried. Not hard to understand why, considering how ridiculously attractive they both are. And at last night’s New York premiere they didn’t disappoint—the fair-skinned, blue-eyed co-stars went for similarly minimalist beauty looks with a palette of rosy neutrals and taupes and plenty of mascara. What do you think of their makeup?
