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?

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. Designed by a Japanese architect, the pampering destination has a Parisian theme—and true to form, sounds totally and utterly over the top. [Daily Mail]
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]

The world of celebrity fragrance is about to have a divine intervention. Italian perfumer Silvana Casoli has created a special cologne to be worn exclusively by Pope Benedict XVI. The lemon tree blossom scent is meant to smell of the Bavarian forest of the German pontiff’s youth. While it remains unnamed as of yet, Holy Water seems like an obvious choice. [Telegraph]

Perpetually svelte—though, admittedly, currently pregnant—January Jones claims that she’s never dieted. On the contrary. “I don’t deny myself anything. I just listen to whatever my body craves. If I’m in a bad mood and I’m in traffic, I’ll stop at McDonald’s and get a strawberry shake and fries and not feel guilty at all, because I deserve it.” As for her slight frame, it’s just the result of “good genes.” [Examiner via Allure]

There were definitely a few award recipients on last night’s 62nd annual Primetime Emmy Awards broadcast that we’ve never seen or heard of before. Archie Panjabi, we’re talking about you. But you’ll be pleased to know that facial recognition issues didn’t stop us from sizing up the beauty happenings on the red carpet. The sea of one-shouldered gowns mentioned in our event coverage? We saw right through it, instead honing in on the hair, the makeup, the nail polish, and the self-tanner. Here, our top five beauty moments—both good and not so much.
1. Black Is Back
Anna Paquin’s bold-shouldered McQueen number got all the attention. But prolonged staring revealed something else, namely an expert black nail polish job. The obsidian shade and its almost-black jewel-toned counterparts were everywhere last night, adorning the fingertips of January Jones, Lea Michele, and Jayma Mays, to name but a few. Celebrity manicurist Deborah Lippmann deserves some of the credit for the ubiquity of deep hues, as she personally painted Jones with her deep purple/burgundy Dark Side of the Moon varnish, and treated Michele to a few coats of her as yet unreleased holiday color, Lady Sings the Blues, an opaque navy with silvery blue sequined flecks.
2. Lobbed and Lovely
After letting her corn silk blond bob grow out over the summer, Mad Men‘s Jones is now the proud owner of a shoulder-grazing lob. Her hair is exactly the length at which things start to look awkward on us, but the style suits her amazingly well, as did the matte texture of her undone ‘do, which came courtesy of her go-to stylist, Mark Townsend. Townsend’s collaborator, makeup artist Rachel Goodwin, channeled Lisa Fonssagrives, leaving Jones’ face bare and re-creating the mid-century model’s signature extended eyeliner with Chanel’s Liquid Eyeliner in Noir. Two coats of its Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir on the top lashes and one coat in Purple on the bottom finished the look.
3. A Woman of Her Word
Claire Danes’ blond mane was also impressive, but it was her extreme lashes that really got us. Danes has been a spokesperson for Latisse for a few months now, and she takes her job very seriously; the award-winning Temple Grandin star is walking proof that the prescription serum works. Those things are lethal!
4. Bigger: Is It Better?
Sleek, straight looks were the style of choice last night, although there were a few dissenters willing to go the vertical distance. The Office‘s Mindy Kaling and Glee‘s Naya Rivera engaged in a high-hair-off, both sporting exaggerated, structural topknot situations that definitely stood out from the crowd.
5. Blinded by Bronzer
An over-tanned Heidi Klum got plenty of stares, and not just because of her super-short Marchesa dress. The Project Runway star went a little trigger happy with her self-tanner and bronzer. Everything in moderation, liebchen.
The new season of Mad Men may still be two weeks away, but January Jones already has our attention—and we’re not talking about that “incident” involving Bobby Flay [http://www.tmz.com/2010/06/11/mad-men-january-jones-car-crash-bobby-flay-food-network-alcohol-hit-and-run/] and a smashed-up SUV in L.A. last month, either. No, we are specifically referring to the coral lip and blended black eyeliner the actress wore to a Vanity Fair-hosted cocktail party at the Louis Vuitton store in Beverly Hills last night. The two makeup elements combined for an easy summery look that managed to be evening-appropriate and chic, without looking weighed down—don’t you think?
