Lancôme is officially stacking its celebrity spokesperson deck. As if scoring Julia Roberts last year wasn’t a big enough coup, the French beauty giant has just announced that Emma Watson is joining Kate Winslet and Penélope Cruz as the newest face of the brand. [WWD]
In the newest issue of O magazine, Oprah dedicates a whole feature to her longtime hairstylist Andre Walker, who dishes about coiffing the talk show hostess-with-the-mostess for the last 25-plus years. Walker goes into detail about “the styles that weren’t so great” (read: the bigger eighties-era poufs) and his tips for keeping Winfrey’s hair TV camera-ready, including, “Condition. Condition. Condition. Whether you think you need it or not, use a conditioner every time you shampoo, and slather on a thick hair mask once a week.” [People StyleWatch]
Emma Stone was snapped with light, strawberry blond curls in L.A. this weekend—a far cry from the sleek platinum strands she sported front-row at Louis Vuitton last week. Yes, the color was for her new movie, The Help, but we’re hoping it will serve as a reminder of how good she looked as a ginger. [Just Jared]
Diet Pepsi debuted its new “skinny” can during NYFW to a considerable amount of criticism, so it should come as no surprise that its allegedly retouched ad campaign starring an equally slimmed-down Sofia Vergara is generating a similar clamor. [Daily Mail]
Gray hairs can drive even the most rational women to maddening lengths—think tears, panic, and, of course, frenzied plucking. But before you take tweezers to scalp, consider this significantly less aggressive alternative: Hair Make-Up by Andre Walker. As Oprah Winfrey’s own hair guru, Walker’s new, eponymous collection of styling products debuted on HSN this month and includes these pocket-size color wands that magically cover up even the most stubborn gray strands. Available in black, dark brown, light brown, blonde, and red (a great match for copper hues), the hair concealer dries instantly, has a shiny finish that incorporates seamlessly into your
natural hair, and rinses out after one shampoo. Besides hiding grays, you can use the Make-Up along the roots to camouflage your natural color’s regrowth. Like Classic Sparkles Uggs, Centerville Pie Company’s Chicken Pie, and Le Creuset Cookware, the pens earned a highly coveted spot on Oprah’s “favorite things” list this year, and may be worth adding to yours in 2011.
Mass beauty giant Proctor & Gamble is joining the green movement by introducing sustainable and recyclable plastic sourced from Brazilian sugarcane in its CoverGirl, Pantene, and Max Factor brands. It’s not zero parabens and preservatives, but every little bit counts. [WWD]

And so, the truth comes out. Gwyneth Paltrow, Country Strong star, mother of two, and poster child for the macrobiotic diet, revealed to Conan O’Brien that she not only owns a deep fryer but uses it all the time. “Fried food is my weakness. I don’t have a sweet tooth,” she says. Us too! [Daily Mail]
Speaking of full disclosure—or lack thereof—Claire Danes’ Latisse spokesperson gig may be in jeopardy as a “source” has come forward claiming that the actress, whose lashes are long and lethal, has severe hyperpigmentation from the prescription growth serum. Bad for business. [NYP]
First Oprah’s makeup artist, Reggie Wells, debuted a new range of products for HissyFit Cosmetics, and now comes news that her hairstylist, Andre Walker, will launch his own range of coiffing products on HSN this week. Looks like everyone is hedging their bets now that the talk show hostess with the mostess is going off the air. [Stylelist]
