Rihanna And Nivea, B.F.F; Katy and Dita Face Off; And More…

-------


Rihanna nabbed a Nivea contract a few months back and she’s making quick work of building a relationship with the brand. Not only will the German-owned skincare company sponsor Ri-Ri’s upcoming tour, but her latest release, “California King Bed,” will provide the soundtrack for a soon-to-be released TV commercial starring its new lineup of products.

Christina Aguilera stepped out over the weekend without her usual facemask of red lipstick, heavy foundation, and lots of lashes, to the horror of the blogosphere. Don’t let them get to you, Xtina. “You are beautiful, no matter what they say” (although those extensions are a little intense). [Us via Gawker]

Those of you beginning to tire of feather hair extensions, rest assured their reign is coming to an end. “I think we’ll be seeing it a lot through the summer,” a stylist at the Fred Segal Salon in Santa Monica—the epicenter of the trend—has said. “But after that, it’ll be over.” Phew. [L.A. Times]

Katy Perry has taken her Dita Von Teese style-biting one step too far on the new cover of Vanity Fair, according to some, ripping off the burlesque star’s signature raven-hued waves, porcelain skin, and crimson mouth. But Von Teese is taking it all in stride. “People have always copied my style. I used to have friends who would dye their hair exactly the same shade as mine. I see it as a compliment.” [NYP]

OPI for Stage Beauties

-------


As evidenced by the recent onslaught of beauty mash-ups (Le Labo for Anthropologie; Prabal Gurung for Sally Hansen; Jason Wu for CND; Disney for MAC, just to name a few), the collaboration game is no longer the exclusive domain of fashion. OPI has been particularly adept at wrangling a few boldface names for forthcoming lacquer lines, including both Katy Perry and Justin Bieber. But to keep you satisfied until you can paint on a few coats of One Less Lonely Girl, the nail varnish giant has released its latest pop-culture-friendly collection, Burlesque. The dozen high-wattage polishes were inspired by the outrageous costumes and over-the-top glamour soon to be on display when the Steven Antin-directed film of the same name premieres this month, starring two of the world’s most legendary divas: Cher and Christina Aguilera. The movie does not hit theaters until November 24, but a full set of flashy tips is just a click away. Personal favorites include Take the Stage, a warm, punchy orange; The Show Must Go On, a creamy hot pink; Ali’s Big Break, a classic showgirl red; and Tease-y Does It, a shimmering deep burgundy. (Nipple tassles are not included, so you know.)

Have Your Stylist Come To You, Eau de Coldplay, And More

-------


Beauty house calls are becoming an increasingly popular way to get your blowouts, highlights, eyebrow waxing, and manicures done—often at a fraction of the in-salon cost. Please note: Covertly convincing your aesthetician to cheat the system and come to your apartment may resemble illicit solicitation, so just choose your words carefully. [NYT]

Coldplay will release a new perfume called Angst. Or so they told fans this morning as a playful April Fool’s joke. It’s a shame to waste such a good fragrance name on a prank, if you ask us. Do it for real, Chris Martin. You know it would sell. [UKPA]

Everybody loves a celebrity makeover story, and now Us Weekly has obliged our collective guilty pleasure with a newly launched 15-photo slideshow. It mostly includes before-and-after pictures of weight loss and haircuts, but Christina Aguilera’s transformation really stands out; her new, anti-drag queen beauty approach is really working for her, no? [Us]

Thinking about a professional-grade teeth-whitening treatment but too squeamish to sit through the procedure at the dentist’s office? A new study shows that acupuncture can actually help you endure the anxiety so you can get the pearly whites of your dreams. [Science Daily]

Or you could just download a new ringtone to soothe your nerves. Therapeutic ring tones that can do things like cure allergies or help curb your appetite are the newest technological rage in Japan. [BBC via Allure]

Black-market silicone injections can be fatal, but that hasn’t stopped would-be “plump-up party” goers from getting their fix. [Huff Po]

It might be your makeup, not those burgeoning crow’s feet, that’s making you look older. Words to the wise: Keep your eyeliner on your upper lid and stay away from garish blush. [Stylist]

Cher and Christina Aguilera will be hitting the big screen—together (!)—this fall for the film Burlesque. Yes, we’re already busy trying to coordinate a serious tell-all interview with the on-set makeup artist. [NY Post]

Evidence disproving the notion that Neanderthals were dimwitted is mounting as British archaeologists present findings that our early ancestors wore makeup. Seeing as how mixing your own foundation is hard enough in 2010, the idea that people were doing it 50,000 years ago does suggest enhanced brain power… [Daily Mail]

And It Was All Yellow…

-------


New York had J. Lo and Fergie, and Christina Aguilera rocked Las Vegas, but leave it to Lady Gaga to steal the New Year’s Eve show with an exciting gig and an equally rousing new hair color at the Fontainebleau in Miami. Perhaps bored of her platinum strands, which experienced a host of transformations in 2009, including pre-Proenza pastel streaks, the singer has taken her blonde ambition to the next level, opting for a shade of (very) sunny flaxen that is ambitious indeed. Can you dig it?
