Net-A-Porter, For All Your Beauty Needs; OPI To (Finally) Do E-Commerce; And More…

-------

Net-a-Porter is branching out into beauty. Look out, Sephora. [WWD]

OPI, a mainstay among nail fanatics the world over, has just made a major move to help average consumers procure its products. In a company first, the salon-only brand will start selling its lacquers on Ulta.com. [OPI]

Rachel Zoe opened her DreamDry blow-dry salon in New York’s Flatiron District last month, and 1,000 appointments in the first week alone gave her the confidence to expand. Another Manhattan outpost on 57th Street as well as national locations are scheduled to roll out this year. [WWD]

Gisele’s new Chanel beauty video for its Les Beiges makeup collection is up and running—and pretty tame. But just seeing the supe onscreen makes it a must-see. [Huff Po]

Halle Berry made headlines this morning after telling Conan O’Brien where exactly she sprays that collection of fragrances that bear her name. “You’re supposed to spray it in between your thighs. Then it heats up and the aroma rises up all day long,” Berry told the late-night host. Scandalous! [NYDN]

Word from the gossip mill is that Adele is designing a skincare line—or will be the face of a new skincare line. Watch this space. [OK!]

The Leave-In Mitt Believes In; Beyoncé Gets Bangs; And More…

-------

Justin Bieber’s new fragrance, Girlfriend, is coming to a beauty counter near you this month but this teaser trailer for the scent starring the teen dream himself should get you plenty excited in the mean time. [E!]

In a first-person account of what it was like to be the backup hairstylist to the Romneys and Ryans at the Republican National convention—from a liberal, no less!—we’ve gleaned the following tidbits of information. 1) Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan style their own hair; 2) they do so with product recommended to them by their corps of groomers, like the Fat Boy Perfect Putty that is currently going around Hair Force One; and 3) this product can be purchased at Urban Outfitters. This should win them at least a few youth votes during tomorrow’s election. [The Cut]

While Halle Berry is also a fan of using putties and waxes to style her short crop, she insists that her signature style doesn’t define her. “It’s just an accessory that I get to wear, like a handbag or shoes.” [People]

And in more hair news, Beyoncé has gotten bangs. Blue Ivy’s mom took time out of her busy campaigning-for-Obama schedule to watch a Brooklyn Nets game—and show off her new fall fringe. [Us]

Alexander Skarsgard And Lara Stone Get Animated For Calvin; The Legs Have It; And More…

-------

GIF culture is at high right now, as frequent readers of #whatshouldwecallme and #realtalk with your editor are well aware. Even W magazine animated a few of the Fall looks in its September issue. Now Calvin Klein is getting in on the game, posting a few GIFs of Alexander Skarsgard and Lara Stone as part of its new Encounter men’s fragrance digital launch platform. Caption these, if you dare. [Grazia]

Natalie Portman takes it all off in her latest ad for Dior Beauty—except, of course, for her Rouge Dior Nude Lipstick. [Wetpaint]

From plastic surgery and topical creams to supplements and specialty makeup, there are an increasing number of ways to tone and sculpt women’s latest physical obsession: legs. [NYT]

It should come as no surprise that a bevy of Revlon products litter brand ambassador Halle Berry’s vanity. But the Monster’s Ball star also has a soft spot for skincare, including creams and salves from Kinara and DDF. [Vanity Fair]

Halle Berry: Teen Beauty Queen; Giving A Career In Cosmetics The 1-2 Punch; And More…

-------

Halle Berry’s past life as a beauty queen has been revealed! Pictures have surfaced on the Internet of the Bond girl and Revlon face in the Miss World Beauty Contest circa 1986 in London, and you know what? She looks even better 25 years later. [ABC News]

U.S. bronze medal-winning Olympics women’s boxing star Marlen Esparza is setting her sights on the beauty industry and plans to launch her own line of products. Too bad the name Knockout Cosmetics is already taken. [E!]

Bye-bye Botox, hello Acufacial. The newest age-defying craze includes exercising facial muscles with tiny, purposefully placed acupuncture needles. [Daily Mail]

Want to match your cell phone to your nail polish? Now you can thanks to Duality Cosmetics, which just launched its Bermuda lacquer, an exact match to Nokia’s Lumia in Pink. [Racked]

Halle’s SoCal Skincare Secret; Katy Perry: The Makeup-Free Movie; And More…

-------


Despite what you may have heard, Halle Berry is very low maintenance—when it comes to her beauty regimen, at least. The Oscar-winning actress swears by the Kinara Spa in L.A. for regular facials and uses its line of in-house products almost exclusively. “I’m big on taking care of my skin so that I can go without makeup. I just grab and go, and what it looks like, it looks like,” the Revlon brand ambassador says. [Bella Sugar]

First came the new fragrances, then the nail polish collection, and now Oscar de la Renta has apparently released a sunscreen. The printed bottle, which was inspired by the designer’s 2012 Resort collection, was originally only available at his resort in the Dominican Republic but is now for sale on his Web site as well. [Teen Vogue]

Ever wonder what the minimally-minded Tilda Swinton would look like all glammed up? Candy magazine did. The glossy that celebrates “transvestism, trans-sexuality, cross dressing and androgyny” put Swinton on its latest cover with a huge mass of red hair, fake eyelashes, a ton of eye shadow, and copper painted talons. And you know what? She still looks good. [Daily Mail]

Katy Perry is taking the opposite approach in her upcoming 3-D movie event Part Of Me (yes, we said movie), going sans makeup and funky hair colors to reveal her bare skin and simple, dark brown hair. Full disclosure: she is unrecognizable. [Bella Sugar Australia]
