Anne Hathaway’s hair has been getting a lot of attention recently. The pixie cut that the actress chopped to play Fantine in the latest film adaptation of Les Misérables has been so well received, in fact, it helped earn Hathaway the December cover of Vogue. But today, we’d like to run your attention to the wide-eyed brunette’s fingers, which were adorned with a classic red lacquer, a simple Mociun ring, and a surprising white accent nail at last night’s Women’s Media Awards in New York. It struck us as a fun, lighthearted beauty experiment for a woman who takes her craft so seriously—and happened to make for a wonderful, graphic color coup when held against her black, Victoria Beckham dress, don’t you think?
Anne Hathaway’s on-set duties for Les Misérables may be over, but she has no desire to grow out the pixie cut she chopped off to play the part of Fantine. “I love the short-haired lifestyle,” she says. “I just feel much more satisfied with less now.” [People]

It’s a long-held theory that social conceptions of beauty vary culturally and are largely based on available visuals, which create a specific context. But according to new research, if a new set of visuals is introduced as the standard, our brains will shift to correspond with them—and rather quickly, at that. [Forbes]
Anne Hathaway is having a bit of a body crisis. Between slimming down to play the curvaceous Catwoman in July’s much-anticipated The Dark Knight Rises and then the wan, starving Fantine in Les Misérables she’s ben on a crazy workout and dieting schedule. “[It was] a psychological terrorist,” she says, referring to her catsuit. “Thoughts of my suit, changing my life so I would fit into that suit…it dominated my year.I went into the gym for ten months and didn’t come out.” Anything for the art of cinema, right?

Dubai has a reputation for being over the top and the latest addition to the city’s towering skyline—with indoor ski slopes et al—is a Hello Kitty beauty spa, the first of its kind. Designed by a Japanese architect, the pampering destination has a Parisian theme—and true to form, sounds totally and utterly over the top. [Daily Mail]
New fragrance, new opportunities for discussions on beauty. Selena Gomez has been doing a lot of talking about her regimen of late to promote her signature scent and today comes news that she doesn’t wear makeup in the summer, just sunscreen. “I’m not too big on cosmetics,” the teen star says adding that a makeup line is probably not in her future. “I never do anything that I’m not really passionate about.” [People]
January Jones has allegedly dyed her hair red and gotten long extensions to showcase the new color. But the paparazzi pictures that have surfaced don’t look much like her, if you ask us. Nevertheless, nothing stops the celebrity hair color wheel from turning. [People]

In what can only be described as a power move to end all power moves, Elizabeth Arden has purchased the fragrance licenses of Justin Bieber and Nicki Minaj from Give Back Brands LLC. Coty Inc., which holds licenses for Beyoncé’s scent empire, not to mention the as-yet-unreleased Lady Gaga perfume, has no doubt taken note. [WWD]
Bad news for the sunless tanning industry—and lovers of glowing skin the world over: A panel of medical experts has revealed that the active chemical used in spray tans—dihydroxyacetone (DHA)—can potentially damage DNA and cause genetic alterations if inhaled.

Lauren Hutton revealed a short crop at Stella McCartney’s Resort presentation on Monday, and apparently, the American Gigolo star cut it herself! “I was closing up a house, and it felt like I needed more closure. I guess I was depressed. I’d been doing that thing where I read The Economist too much. You know, reading it front to back for weeks on end isn’t always good for you. Instead of suicide, I ran into the kitchen and grabbed a pair of poultry shears. I grabbed one half [of my hair] and went whack, and then I grabbed the other side and went whack again!” [The Cut]
Also in the crowd at McCartney’s show was a newly shorn Anne Hathaway, who, as it is widely known known, cut her hair to play Fantine in Les Misérables. But even though she snipped her long strands for a role, Hathaway is considering keeping them cropped. “I’m just so pleased with how I look, so I now quite like having short hair.” [NY Mag]
Anne Hathaway has toyed around with bangs and layers over the years, but the actress’ mid-back-length brunette locks have long been a part of her appeal. Now, they’re long gone. Hathaway was spotted leaving The Box nightclub in London last night sporting a freshly cut pixie. The Love and Other Drugs star has reportedly sheared off her strands for her upcoming role in the big-screen adaptation of Les Misérables, but we’re all for her keeping them short once the movie wraps. This isn’t the best picture of the gamine style, of course, but from what we can tell, it suits Hathaway’s face extremely well. Don’t you think?
