It’s official: The Jolie-Pitts are getting into the beauty contract business. But it’s Brad, not Angelina, who will be doing face time—for Chanel No. 5, no less. Is it weird that Pitt’s very masculine image will be used to sell the iconic women’s fragrance? Seeing as how this is the image in question (please direct your attention due left), the answer is decidedly “no.” [Chanel]
Unilever is poised to bring its Clear Scalp & Hair Beauty Therapy brand—a complete lineup of scalp and strand products already available in 42 other countries—to America this month, and they’re doing so with the star power of Heidi Klum, who will serve as brand ambassador. [NYT]
A new H&M ad featuring a scantily clad—and heavily bronzed—Isabeli Fontana is generating some complaints from the Swiss Cancer League, which is calling the images “alarming” and “completely [contradictory]” to their efforts to deter indoor and outdoor tanning abuse. Oops. [Daily Mail]
NARS Cosmetics’ heavily anticipated Andy Warhol color collection won’t be on shelves until October, but the brand has released a (very) short teaser video to generate excitement in the mean time. [YouTube]
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are seemingly joined at the hip—when one of their six children isn’t in between them, that is. Hollywood’s golden couple even gets their hair done together, according to stylist Adam Campbell from L.A.’s Prive Salon. [Us Weekly]
You can add another name to the list of baby food diet devotees. Lady Gaga has revealed that her svelte figure has a lot to do with eating the “goo” typically reserved for infants—and dancing like a mad woman on stage, one assumes. [Monsters & Critics]
Deep thoughts on fragrance, by Heidi Klum: “It kind of completes your look, even though you can’t see it. It’s kind of like underwear.” Klum’s latest perfume, Shine, debuts in September. [Allure]
We’re just going to say it: The Golden Globes are hands-down the best awards show of the year. First off, they’re actually significant. Not like the People’s Choice Awards, or whatever awards shows MTV is conjuring up at the moment. And style-wise, they usually hit a, if not perfect, than certainly interesting pitch: more formal than the Grammys, less fussy than the Oscars. In the annals of red-carpet history, the Globes have also offered up some memorable moments in bangs (Reese Witherspoon), braids (Sienna Miller), and boobs (Scarlett Johansson). So, in preparation for this weekend’s broadcast, we offer you our own beauty-themed winners’ circle. As far as early projections go, we’re looking for Michelle Williams’ pixie cut and Natalie Portman’s brows to have a big night. Click here for more.
With a client list that includes such A-listers as Madonna, Brad Pitt, and Kate Winslet, superstar facialist Tracie Martyn has scrutinized the pores of most of Hollywood. The British-born pro started out as a makeup artist who had a knack for prepping skin behind the camera. She was so good that models like Kate Moss used to drop by her Brooklyn apartment for pre-photo shoot touch-ups. Eventually, Martyn developed such a following that she retired the makeup brushes and opened up an eponymous spa in Manhattan, where she now performs her signature Resculpting Facial (a.ka. the “Red-Carpet Facial,” known for its CGI-like lifting and contouring effects) on many a bold-facer. She also has a holistic skincare range that’s (almost) as good as a private session and a sparkling new spa in Miami Beach’s Fontainebleau hotel. Here, Martyn gives us a rundown of the experts she swears by.

The Summer Staple: Tracie Martyn Amla Purifying Cleanser
“During the hot sticky days in New York, nothing is more refreshing. This cools the skin with lime and spearmint, and smells like walking through a forest, as my lovely client Lena Olin put it. It’s also a great multitasker since it exfoliates with green papaya extract, zaps zits with willow bark and salicylic acid, and prevents aging with stabilized vitamin C from the Amla berry.”
