How did Naomi Watts get her skin into fighting shape for the SAG Awards last night? “Skin juice! Alkaline: cucumber, lemon, ginger, celery, and apple. Super-boost with avocado,” according to facialist Abigail James. [Marieclaire.co.uk]
Dyeing your hair for a movie comes with its pitfalls, according to January Jones. “I have been every color, and now my hair is falling out in clumps,” Jones said of the production process for her new movie, Sweetwater. “I’ve been blonde, red with extensions for this film, then blonde, then black, and now blonde again. I’m going to have to shave it off and wear a wig.” [Us]
After forty-five years, Mia Farrow has set the record straight about her famous pixie cut in Rosemary’s Baby. In a letter to The New York Times, which published a piece about the famous cut, giving credit for it to Vidal Sassoon, as has been customary since Paramount Pictures released promotional photos of Sassoon shearing Ms. Farrow on set in 1968, the actress wrote: “I had literally cut it myself earlier that year—with a pair of fingernail scissors—while working on the Peyton Place TV series at Fox Studios. This was long before I ever heard of Vidal Sassoon. My then-boyfriend, Frank Sinatra, loved the cut, and so I kept it short. I purchased some hair scissors; then, as now, I cut it myself. I intend no disrespect to Mr. Sassoon, but he had nothing to do with my haircut.” Farrow then signed the letter, “Your invaluable sleuth of hair history.” [NYT]

They say the Screen Actors Guild Awards often help clarify the Oscar picture, as Hollywood’s best and brightest are judged by a panel of their peers. If that’s the case, then February 24 should be a big night for Daniel Day-Lewis, Jennifer Lawrence, Argo, and strapless floor-length gowns. On the beauty front, the show also seemed to indicate an uptick in side-parted glam waves, neutral lips, and sultry smoky eyes, although there were a few surprises to speak of. Below, we’ve outlined our favorite hair and makeup moments from last night’s festivities and made things a little interesting with some friendly competition. Who do you think won best in beauty?
Statement Lips: January Jones vs. Claire Danes
And the Actor goes to…Claire Danes
January Jones gets points for the Bowie-caliber pompadour that she paired with her precisely lined crimson mouth, but Claire Danes wins this category with a completely out-of-the-box plum-stained pout that bordered on chocolate brown courtesy of a layering effort of Laura Mercier Lip Pencils in Coffee Bean and Deep Wine. Fall’s embrace of the mulberry mouth may be losing steam, but don’t be surprised if Danes’ take on the color inspires a whole new crop of followers.
A Cut Above: Freida Pinto vs. Marion Cotillard
And the Actor goes to…Marion Cotillard
Short cuts have been the big story on the runway and red carpet of late, and the SAGs had a few moments of shear genius to speak of, right on cue. Freida Pinto showed off the beautiful cowl-neck of her lilac Roland Mouret gown with a rolled-under bob that we actually had to do a double take to determine if it was faux or real. There was no such confusion with Marion Cotillard’s freshly chopped locks, however. Worn with a deep side part and featuring slightly asymmetrical front panels, Cotillard’s cut wasn’t just the best short story of the night, it was one of its finest beauty moments, period.

Despite that Pantene contract, Zooey Deschanel is better known for her serious nail art obsession. But she’s been partial to bare tips recently, until next month, that is. “I save it for special occasions. I’m looking forward to the Christmas holiday,” the New Girl star told Jimmy Fallon last night of her favorite finger-painting pastime before revealing that last holiday season, she brushed on a Christmas sweater montage one week and the font from the Beatles Help! record another. Clever girl. [Stylelite]
Botox can hide a world of facial ills—including “tells” that may lose a poker champion a mess of winnings. But not if Dr. Jack Berdy has anything to say about it. The New York-based dermatologist has just christened “Pokertox,” a customizable mix of fillers and Botox that help professional gamblers keep their cards to themselves. [Huff Po]
Anne Hathaway is having a bit of a body crisis. Between slimming down to play the curvaceous Catwoman in July’s much-anticipated The Dark Knight Rises and then the wan, starving Fantine in Les Misérables she’s ben on a crazy workout and dieting schedule. “[It was] a psychological terrorist,” she says, referring to her catsuit. “Thoughts of my suit, changing my life so I would fit into that suit…it dominated my year.I went into the gym for ten months and didn’t come out.” Anything for the art of cinema, right? [VH1]
Dubai has a reputation for being over the top and the latest addition to the city’s towering skyline—with indoor ski slopes et al—is a Hello Kitty beauty spa, the first of its kind.

New fragrance, new opportunities for discussions on beauty. Selena Gomez has been doing a lot of talking about her regimen of late to promote her signature scent and today comes news that she doesn’t wear makeup in the summer, just sunscreen. “I’m not too big on cosmetics,” the teen star says adding that a makeup line is probably not in her future. “I never do anything that I’m not really passionate about.” [People]
January Jones has allegedly dyed her hair red and gotten long extensions to showcase the new color. But the paparazzi pictures that have surfaced don’t look much like her, if you ask us. Nevertheless, nothing stops the celebrity hair color wheel from turning. [People]
