Super Bowl Super Strands: A Face-Off

-------

By all accounts, last night’s Super Bowl halftime show was epic. Madonna? Check. Givenchy couture? Check. Cameos from Nicki Minaj and MIA? Check, check. Prince’s 2007 Super Bowl performance will forever rank as our favorite, but we can admit that Madonna legitimately killed it—with one hell of a beauty look to boot. Madge’s go-to glam squad of makeup artist Gina Brooke and hairstylist Andy LeCompte traveled to Indianapolis with the material girl to provide complexion perfection, glittering bronze lids, and a serious set of thick, honey gold ringlets that reminded us of a certain Italian Vogue editor. So, for a little compare-and-contrast fun, we give you Madonna in Givenchy and Franca Sozanni in Gucci. Who rocks long, middle-parted curls better?

Rooney Mara Is Lisbeth Sander; Franca Sozzani Talks Aging Gracefully; And More…

-------

Rooney Mara took her role as Lisbeth Sander in The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo really seriously—so seriously, she’s finding it difficult to transition back to her pre-GWTDT self. “My wardrobe has completely changed. It had to, partly because of my hair and partly because I stopped feeling comfortable in what I used to wear,” the one-time brunette says. It looks like Lisbeth’s severe black crop, rail-thin bod, and paler-than-pale complexion are here to stay. [Monsters & Critics]

In other book thrillers-turned-forthcoming Hollywood blockbuster news, the on-again, off-again Hunger Games nail polish collection from China Glaze is back…on. [Examiner]

The economy may still be in recovery mode, but plastic surgery rates have never been higher. Can’t afford that tummy tuck? Finance, finance, finance. [Daily Beast]

Franca Sozanni could do without all the nipping and tucking. The Vogue Italia editor is of the mind that “surgery is good when it’s [to help fix] a psychological problem. It helps you to feel more confident. But if, at my age, I have to put Botox in my face and not move, it doesn’t change anything, and I will not look younger…and your children, they won’t forgive you. They don’t want you to be someone else. They want you to be their mother.” Advantage, Sozanni. [Huff Po]
