Models Without Makeup; Less Sugar, More Spice For Eau De Dita; And More…


To properly welcome the arrival of its new London office, modeling agency Viva has posted pictures of 12 of its biggest girls—Natalia, Raquel, Edita—sans makeup or retouching onto their Web site. If the idea was to prove that they have the most beautiful roster of catwalkers, point taken. [Jezebel]

It’s happened before with Twilight and Glee, so it shouldn’t be that surprising that now The Young and the Restless has inspired a beauty range. Yet somehow, it still is… [Sacramento Bee]

Dita Von Teese is inching ever closer to releasing her first signature scent, due out this Fall. “After 6 months of meetings w/’noses’ in Paris+100s of variations on my ideas, I think we’ve finally got my signature fragrance!,” the burlesque beauty tweeted. What will Eau de Dita definitely not include? Fruit, candy, or vanilla essences. [Just Jared]

The baby food diet is back. Jennifer Aniston was rumored to be anti-solids last year, and it’s being reported that British TV host Cheryl Cole has been touting the meal plan to get in shape for her breakout role on the forthcoming U.S. version of X Factor. Too bad she was just ousted by Pussycat Dolls singer, Nicole Scherzinger. [Daily Mail]

Do What Dita Does; Justin Bieber Sets a Cougar Trap; And More…


What are Dita Von Teese’s top two beauty priorities? “Flawless skin is the most important thing, then red lips. In exactly that order. Red lips don’t look good on blotchy, uneven skin.” To keep thing smooth and uniform, the burlesque superstar applies Crème de la Mer directly after washing her face—while her skin is still damp—before layering on Dior Capture Totale Foundation and a “dusting” of MAC Mineralize Powder. Then it’s all about her trusty bullet of Dior Dolce Vita lipstick. Now you know. [T]

Justin Bieber’s just-announced Someday fragrance is “not just a young girl’s perfume,” the teen heartthrob insists. Justin does like older women[OK!]

More women in the U.K. are apparently getting boob jobs in homage to Mad Men‘s Christina Hendricks’ enviable rack. But the flame-haired beauty would rather inspire a “be happy with what you’ve got” mantra: “If there’s anything to be learned from me it’s that I’m learning to celebrate what I was born with, even though it’s sometimes been inconvenient,” she says. [People]

After 600 entries in 26 product categories, the 139 finalists chosen for this year’s CEW Awards finally found out who’d be number one at the annual event this weekend. Coty Beauty (Best Women’s Scent, Mass: Beyoncé Heat), Lancôme (Best Moisturizer, Prestige: Génifique Repair Youth Activating Night Cream), and Dior (Best Eye Product, Prestige: Diorshow Maximizer) all came up big, as did Fresh, with what may have been the night’s biggest upset. Its Sugar Plum Tinted Lip Treatment beat out Chanel’s well-loved Rouge Coco in the Best Lip Product Prestige category. Click here for a full list of this year’s winners. [Drug Store News]

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. [WWD]

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]

Our Top Three Coachella Beauty Looks


Coachella 2011 has come and gone and now we’re left with the task of sifting through pictures from the weekend that was. Predictable images of face paint, sundresses, tattoos, and short shorts abound—as does a recurring image of one reveler in a thong string bikini (when in the desert, we guess). Three beauty moments really stand out for us as the best of the fest. Dita Von Teese, in signature red lip, net-encased chignon, hibiscus-print Moschino Cheap & Chic romper, and sailor hat, was an obvious winner, while Kelly Osbourne’s warmer-than-usual blond strands and bright pink lip emerged as a surprise hit. But PJ Harvey takes the prize for incorporating both a headband and feathers—two Coachella staples—into her hair last night. Which look is making you want to reserve your tickets for next year now?

First Look: Dita, The Book; Blondes Have More Funds; And More…


We told you it was coming earlier this month, and now Dita Von Teese has leaked early images of her new tell-all DIY beauty book, which reveals how you too can look like the perfectly primped burlesque queen. [StyleList]

A new survey conducted in the U.K. reveals that blondes can stand to earn almost $1,000 more a year than their brunette or redheaded counterparts, although apparently no amount of money can earn you respect from your peers; the study also showed that most women of the flaxen-haired variety don’t think they’re taken seriously in the workplace. [Daily Mail]

Cosmeceuticals and natural skincare products are becoming increasingly popular with beauty consumers. Which will come out ahead? How ’bout we meet in the middle: a new trend will see a rise in naturally driven ingredients that function like synthetic molecules. A hibiscus-plant extract that mimics the effects of Botox? We’ll take it! [CareFair]

As New Year’s resolutions to eat less and work out more pile up, science journalist Gary Taubes’ new book, Why We Get Fat: And What to Do About It, suggests that joining up at Equinox may not be the answer to all of your problems. Taubes argues that our bodies are predisposed to be fat or not, and that “eating in moderation and being physically active are not evidence of moral rectitude. Rather, they’re the metabolic benefits of a body that’s programmed to remain lean.” Who needs those inflexible gym membership contracts anyway? [NYT]
