We often give Dita Von Teese love on this blog for her perfectly curled-under raven locks, her powdered ivory skin, and the crimson-lip-plus-black-cat-eye combo that she’s made her everyday look. But her devotion to her fingertips also deserves some props; the burlesque queen is rarely spotted without a moon manicure, a 1940′s-era look that had a modern-day revival at the Fall shows (click here for our step-by-step guide to re-creating the style at home). This weekend, Von Teese sported a burgundy adaptation at a book signing in L.A., along with her Alexander McQueen Union Jack clutch. Thoughts on the paint job?
Padma Lakshmi is getting wiser with every passing month of her pregnancy. “What you pay for in gravity, you gain in gravitas,” the Top Chef host was recently quoted as saying about aging and an increasing acceptance of her appearance. Some really excellent word play there, no? [People]
In other body-image news, with the upcoming release of The Princess and the Frog, people are questioning whether Disney’s female protagonists—black or white—are “unrealistically thin,” thus sending a negative message to six-year-old fans.

First Pete Wentz, now Lady Gaga. With every purchase of the deluxe new version of her album The Fame Monster, the “Paparazzi”-singer will be giving out a lock of her hair, a personal note, and a jigsaw puzzle. Perhaps this is what she meant by a “love game”?[Hollyscoop]

The trick to a perfect pinup pout? Apply lipstick, set with powder, then reapply. This and other tips for that Dita-inspired Halloween costume you’re working on. [NYT]
It’s hard not to pit Dita Von Teese and Evan Rachel Wood against one another. Both have dated reigning Prince of Darkness Marilyn Manson and both have adopted a goth burlesque aesthetic that demands an extremely ivory complexion, dark eyes, and a deep pout. It’s even harder not to make comparisons when they both show up at the same event in variations on this look, that being the Fashion Group International’s 26th annual Night of Stars last night in New York. Do you prefer Dita’s classic interpretation or Evan’s addition of slight cheek contouring and a soft mauve smoky eye? And furthermore, who wins the alabaster skin-off?
After a fall spent channeling Dita in vampy blackberry and an awards season wearing a rich shade of strawberry blond, Evan Rachel Wood supported her Tribeca Film Festival flick Whatever Works last night with a new hairstyle in fiery red.

Do you have a favorite Evan era—and furthermore, any thoughts on that seriously smoky plum shadow?
