Shocking as this may be to believe, porcelain-skinned, flame-haired beauty Amy Adams has gone without a fragrance contract all these years. But Lacoste has remedied that oversight by signing the actress as the face of its new Eau de Lacoste scent. [WWD]
In other perfume news, it looks like Project Runway star Christian Siriano will be launching his first fragrance, “a fragrance which to me symbolizes the type of women I love to dress who is stylish, sophisticated, and powerful,” he says—and fierce, one assumes. [WWD]
MAC Cosmetics has just announced its latest collaborative coup, which involves teaming up with Academy Award-winning special effects makeup artist Rick Baker on a new product line due out next fall. Baker, it should be noted, is responsible for the epic, physical transformations in movies like The Nutty Professor, Men in Black, and perhaps most notably, Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” video. [WWD]

Project Runway winner Christian Siriano’s limited-edition makeup collection for Victoria’s Secret debuts this week. To celebrate the momentous occasion, the design phenom and former makeup artist will be meeting and greeting fans while his artistry team performs personalized free makeovers. Call (866) 842-8674 to book your appointment.
When: Saturday, August 15, 12 to 3 p.m.
Where: Victoria’s Secret at Herald Square, 1328 Broadway, at 34th Street, NYC
Why: Victoria’s Secret is also celebrating the launch of VS Makeup, the evolution of its existing Very Sexy Makeup line, and purchasing two or more items from the collection scores you a signature cosmetic case with four deluxe fragrance samples (the Airbrush FX Face Primer is a personal fave). And because watching Siriano try to come up with new ways to use the term “tranny” as an adjective never gets old.
Before he made the word fierce part of the country’s vernacular during his winning season on Project Runway, Christian Siriano was a makeup artist. True story. He worked the counter at Bloomingdale’s and even had a brief stint at Sephora before trading in his kabuki brush and face palettes for straight pins and presumably a lot more attitude. In an effort to return to his roots—and complement his most recent collection—the asymmetrical-haired designer has partnered with Victoria’s Secret to produce a line of limited-edition fall makeup. His first official foray into beauty includes a black kajal liner, three different neutral lip glosses, a bronzer/highlighter trio, and five eye shadow solos, including a gold-flecked version of VS Makeup’s best-selling black pigment, aptly named Gilded Fierce. After getting a sneak peak during an editor’s preview last night, we’re pretty sure you’re gonna want to get in on these when they come out at the end of the summer: They’re runway-ready (Alessandra Ambrosia and Adriana Lima were on hand to model the goods) and completely budget-friendly, ranging from $12 to $24 a piece. And just like that, Siriano is poised to endear himself to style-savvy Americans one more time.
Always in the vanguard when it comes to environmental issues, Aveda made serious strides to raise awareness for endangered marine life last night with a launch party for its Plastic Caps Recycling Program . Green enthusiasts, friends of the brand, and eco-minded designers like Alexander Wang and Christian Siriano were on hand at Tribeca’s Greenwich Hotel to celebrate the initiative, which aims to reduce the number of bottle caps littering beaches and oceans. The company has enlisted the help of its own network of salons and stores, as well as community schools nationwide, to collect water, soda, detergent, and shampoo plastic polypropylene bottle caps—an endeavor that has already brought in more than 50,000 pounds of plastic and spared the lives of countless birds, turtles, and other ocean life that often mistake the colored caps for food. The first product to debut with the brand’s new environmentally responsible packaging will be Aveda’s Limited Edition Vintage Clove Shampoo, launching later this month.
