There are days that I wake up and just want to end the endless battle of bed head by picking up my boyfriend’s buzzer in lieu of a brush. (I imagine Britney Spears experienced a similar morning back in 2007.) One model who’s taken the pixie trend to an entirely new—and minimalistic—level is Alina Levichkina, who is featured in Christopher Kane’s latest Resort lookbook. Paired with the designer’s floral motifs and Day-Glo parade of neon lace, her no-frills crop provides a nice juxtaposition to the unconventional-but-still-feminine clothes. I’m adding this catwalker to the list of ladies—Lupita Nyong’o, Erykah Badu, Demi Moore, Grace Jones, and Natalie Portman among them—who shed a gorgeous new light on losing every inch of length.

Demi Moore’s first fragrance foray with Helena Rubinstein circa 2009 is currently discontinued, but that hasn’t stopped the 50-year-old from giving it another go.

Watch out, green beauty industry. Oprah Winfrey has apparently filed a few different applications with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to launch a series of organic goods under the name “Oprah’s Organics,” “Oprah’s Farm,” or “Oprah’s Harvest”—soaps, bath oils, and skincare and hair-care products included.

Every time Courteney Cox appears in a promo for her TV series Cougar Town, it is abundantly clear that she takes a pro stance on Botox. But the former Friends star is also plenty happy to verbalize her reliance on antiaging wonder drugs: “Getting older isn’t easy for anybody. Especially here in Los Angeles. So let’s be clear: looking youthful is something I do a lot of research on…If someone says, ‘You should try apple stem cells,’ guess who’ll be putting them on her face the next day?” [Telegraph]

It’s a rare occasion when Demi Moore ties back her long, lustrous raven locks, so when she does, people take notice—or maybe it’s just us, since we’re marginally obsessed with the 48-year-old’s beauty habits (she still looks so good!). At the 13th Annual Costume Designers Guild Awards last night in L.A., Moore opted for a French braid, which started at her hairline, cascaded around the side of her head, and sloped past her neck, where it joined with the lengths in an intricate, side-slung fishtail. The youthful style certainly opened up her face more, which we’re convinced she deliberately tries to cover with those aforementioned back-grazing strands to avoid the did-she-or-didn’t-she Botox commentary that frequently plagues women of her age (especially those who happen to have super-babe status). But with minimal makeup and everything in plain view, we’re of the mind that Moore looks simply—and naturally—gorgeous. And you?

Matthew McConaughey may be best known for his perpetually shirtless abs (and his stand-out performance in Dazed and Confused, of course), but the buff Texan isn’t flawless enough to escape the invisible hand of digital airbrushing—or so his new ads for Dolce & Gabbana’s The One Gentleman fragrance suggest. Let the record show that his post-stroke, creepily smooth facial expression does not make us want to buy cologne. [Huff Po]
