Gaga To “Leak” Fragrance Ads; The “Robert” Returns; And More…

-------

After a Twitter leak ruined the original launch strategy for Lady Gaga’s upcoming Fame fragrance, the queen of pop has taken matters into her own hands. Gaga has been responsible for all “leaks” since, sharing photos of the fragrance’s bottle, information about its notes—and, in a few hours, a first look at the Steven Klein-lensed ad campaign—via her own Twitter account. Game, set, match, Gaga. [Twitter]

Spoiler alert: Robert Pattinson has revealed that he had to wear a wig to reshoot some of the scenes in Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2. That’s what happens when you shave off your signature floppy mop top right after a set wraps, R Patts. [People]

They can be carcinogenic and increase depression in children, and now comes news that a high concentration of chemical phthalates found in household grooming products like shampoos, soaps, hair sprays, and nail polishes can increase the risk of diabetes. Scar-ry. [Fox News]

It’s official: As of today, indoor tanning by anyone under 17 years old is heretofore illegal in the great state of New York. Get ready for a pasty—albeit healthy—winter, 16-year-olds. [NYDN]

Loyalties in the business of beauty brand ambassadorship are made that much more complicated in the face of red-carpet dressing. But just in case you thought Blake Lively was on the outs with the house of Chanel after inking that deal to be the new face of Gucci’s Premiere fragrance, not to worry; Blake is still “an ambassador to Chanel,” the French house insists. Just don’t tell Frida Giannini that. [The Cut]

Versace Makes A Move For Men; Jon Bon For Avon; And More…

-------

The beauty biz is looking to woo a whole new crop of very interested male consumers, and Donatella Versace is aware of it. The designer is reportedly working on a men’s scent called Eros, to be released this fall. [WWD]

Avon is also getting on board the men’s beauty boom, announcing this morning that it has signed Jon Bon Jovi as the face of its Unplugged fragrance for men and women. [USA Today]

Gucci continues to invest in its women’s fragrance portfolio, signing Blake Lively to a new beauty contract as the face of the forthcoming scent Premiere. In the flacon’s just-released ad images, Lively plays a role she’s becoming plenty familiar with: screen siren. [Daily Mail]

With a new signature scent already under her belt, Selena Gomez is turning her branding ambition to the primping set’s other hot commodity: nail polish. The Disney star has inked a deal with Nicole by OPI to launch her own lacquer line. [Hollywood Life]

Pony Tales

-------

The Savages press junket is in full swing, and Blake Lively isn’t wasting any time getting into her red-carpet groove. The blonde starlet opened with a body-conscious Zuhair Murad couture gown/red lip/red moon manicure combo at the film’s official premiere in L.A. this week, and at a special screening in New York last night, she followed it up with a canary yellow Gucci halter dress and showstopping updo. This wasn’t just any updo; the style merged two of Lively’s favorite hair pastimes together, starting out as a high ponytail that segued into a fishtail braid, which was backcombed for volume (and slung over her left shoulder for drama). As for that killer tan, it will presumably be with her as the film makes the rounds over the next few weeks—which is certainly not hurting her cause. Thoughts on Lively’s latest blockbuster beauty moment?

Savage Beauty

-------

Blake Lively is a modern-day screen siren if ever there was one—and she’s got the bod, the blond locks, and the action hero boyfriend to prove it. But at the L.A. premiere of Savages, the Gossip Girl star and newly named Gucci fragrance face went full bombshell. Not only did she sport a stapless, curve-hugging Zuhair Murad couture gown that recalled images of an impossibly proportioned Jessica Rabbit, she sported the Veronica Lake long, side-swept waves—peekaboo bangs and all—classic crimson lip, and forties-era scarlet moon manicure to match. Well played, Lively; well played. Don’t you think?

Gucci: The Constant Gardener; Makeup Tips From The Hunger Games; And More…

Gucci is having a garden party. In March, the brand will launch the Flora Garden, an extension of its hit Flora scent that includes a collection of five fragrances, each of which embodies a blossom depicted on an iconic Gucci scarf designed by Vittorio Accornero for Princess Grace in the Sixties. Abbey Lee Kershaw stars as the face of the range. [WWD]

Chloë Moretz wasn’t the only starlet sporting a noteworthy manicure at Jason Wu’s Target collection fête last night. Blake Live opted for a chunky gold glitter polish that she wore alone in a clear base. [Hollywood Life]

The Hunger Games’ blockbuster film premiere is just a short 55 days away but super fans of the series might be excited to know how on-set makeup artist Ve Neill got Katniss rugged and ready for her opening ceremonies scene—whatever that means (full disclosure: we still haven’t gotten into the books but it sounds like we’ve got three months to make some moves).
