The fifth annual DVF Awards brought out beauty looks far edgier than a wrap dress. Alicia Keys appears to have added a few inches to her faux-hawk (and strangely enough, we’re into this modified mullet that is reminiscent of Rufio in Hook, the classic nineties adaptation of Peter Pan). The real standout, however, was Estelle’s extensive mehndi tattoo. The exotic floral pattern started on the tops of her fingers and ascended all the way up to her shoulders. Now that’s what we call an arm party.
The Cosmetics Executive Women’s annual Beauty Awards were doled out this weekend, making winners out of some shoe-ins (Marc Jacobs’ Lola, for one) and a few unlikely heroes, as well. The indie brand Living Proof took home not one but three awards. Interestingly, Estelle represented in an equally disproportionate number of categories, making a beauty deal for the British-born songstress seem imminent. [WWD]
Those raunchy Miss USA pictures drummed up a ton of press for Donald Trump’s Vegas extravaganza—and pageants in general, it would appear. With interest in the crown and sash renewed, Miss America is coming back to network TV, ABC specifically, after being relegated to TLC last year. Get ready for many cringe-worthy prime-time talent competitions to come. [Variety]
Kylie Minogue admits to dabbling in Botox in the past, but now the 41-year-old Aussie pop star is coming out against it and other age-defiers, vowing never again to change her looks with plastic surgery. This sounds like another Jane Fonda case in the making. [Daily Mail]
One thing Minogue isn’t swearing off is her celebrity fragrance franchise. Pink Sparkle, her latest olfactory creation, inspired by rosé bubbly, hits stores this summer. [Scented Salamander]
Estelle’s video for her new song “Freak” is apparently all about releasing your inner freak, which Estelle does through a host of suitably freaky beauty looks, including gilded lip glitter and, uh, blackface. For the record, the singer is a British-born black woman herself, but that is apparently a negligible point for offended fans. Consider the controversy back on. [MTV]
Despite lingering economic strain, Judith Leiber’s jewel-encrusted evening bags are still pretty popular with the Hollywood set and those who aspire to be a part of it. So popular, in fact, the designer is planning some line extensions this year, which will include a brand-spankin’-new holiday fragrance. Expect the flacon to be plenty sparkly. [WWD]
Oops! She did it again; Britney is back to blonde. [E! Online]
In other blonde, one-time pop star news, Jessica Simpson will be on Oprah tomorrow to talk about her much hyped new reality show The Price of Beauty, which airs on VH1 March 15. And in case you’re wondering, yes—Oprah gets in a few John Mayer questions during the interview. [Us]
Seeing as how everyone seems to be confining their color experiments to their lips these days, we felt compelled to highlight Estelle’s dare-to-be-different eye candy at last night’s BET Awards. A bare face, some high-shine gloss, black liner, and lots of lashes made the songstress’ metallic blue shadow pop, although it was her single-white-glove tribute to the late Michael Jackson that got most of the attention on the red carpet. Thoughts on her lid love?
