Alexa Chung has revealed her style icons (Graham Coxon, Keith Richards, Julie Christie, and Françoise Hardy), as well as one very naughty beauty secret. “I’m obsessed with moisturizing, but relaxed about everything else—I even leave my makeup on at night,” she has said. “I just always have to be wearing black eyeliner.” Even in a state of slumber, that’s dedication.

That’s not this week’s only not-washing news: More and more people, it seems, are defying the “culture of clean” that has mandated daily showers and deodorant use in America for the better part of the last century.

CoverGirl upped its diversity quotient today with the announcement that it will be adding Heroes star and Dominican beauty Dania Ramirez to its roster of spokesmodels. Ramirez joins Drew Barrymore, Queen Latifah, and Ellen DeGeneres as the newest member of the easy, breezy, beautiful pack, and told People.com that she intends on bringing “a story of struggle and hard work” to her new post. She went on: “Not speaking the language [when I got to America] and trying to figure out my definition of beauty, you learn to recognize the beauty in all of us.” That no doubt pleased her new employers at Procter & Gamble—you can’t write a better inspirational endorsement than that. She will star in print and television ads beginning January 2010.
This year is shaping up to be one for the record books. Barack Obama is the first black man to accept a major party nomination; Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin and her oft talked-about updo are making questionable strides for women everywhere; and apparently, an openly gay Ellen DeGeneres will join an illustrious list of past supermodels and actresses as the newest face of CoverGirl cosmetics. To which we say, kudos. Way to capitalize on the current climate for social change, CoverGirl. Whatever sells more makeup, right?
