Jessica Simpson’s Post-Baby Diet Plans Put On Hold; How To Eat Like An Angel; And More…

-------

Jessica Simpson confirmed via Twitter yesterday that she is in fact pregnant with her second child a cool seven months after giving birth to her first. So, what does that mean for the multi-million dollar deal she signed with Weight Watchers, which was hoping to benefit on what would have been a very public post-baby slim down? There will be “no changes,” says the dieting brand, which will use footage of Simpson’s weight loss after giving birth to baby Maxwell in May in a new advertising campaign. Simpson “will not be following the program” during her second pregnancy. [USA Today]

In other dieting news, Victoria’s Secret Angel and former Leonardo DiCaprio flame Erin Heatherton admits that while working out is essential to maintaining her Angel-caliber body, so is eating. “It’s important to be fit, but you shouldn’t get too skinny. You need to have curves,” says the blond bombshell, who works out twice a day but also makes sure to keep her calorie intake high, so there’s something to “build on. If you’re not eating enough, all the work-outs are doing, it’s not going to show.” [Daily Mail]

Beware of bootleg Botox. According to a letter the FDA sent to 350 medical practices last month that was just made public, counterfeit and potentially dangerous forms of the wrinkle-reducing toxin have been purchased from Canadian pharmaceutical companies and are currently circulating stateside.

Turkey’s beauty tourism business is booming, but it’s not the country’s signature hammams that are bringing in the big bucks. Nope, that honor goes to an uptick in visitors to the country seeking beard and mustache implants! [Guardian]

Celebrity fragrances were big sellers at the retail counter this holiday season, with Lady Gaga’s Fame topping out as the number one perfume in the U.K., while sets from Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber were big sellers at home. [Starpulse and Glamour]

Move over, Jennifer Hudson. Jessica Simpson will reportedly be the next full-figure starlet to share her weight loss story with the world. The mom-to-be is in talks with Weight Watchers to become its new face post-pregnancy. [Us]

Running is a great way to burn excess calories, but it may be doing more harm than good to your complexion. Cosmetic surgeons are reporting an increase in patients seeking to remedy “runner’s face,” a new term for the gaunt and wrinkled appearance they say is a side effect of too much jogging. [Daily Mail]

For fragrance obssessives for whom flacons are just as important as actual scent compositions, get thee to Barcelona stat. Your Mecca awaits at Regia—an 83-year-old perfumery that also boasts a 50-year-old fragrance museum, which houses perfume bottles that date as far back as the sixteenth-century B.C., as well as more modern classics like Baccarat-encased original releases of Guerlain’s Shalimar.

BeachMint.com is brand-building. First the online retail destination debuted JewelMint.com, a collection of affordable baubles designed by Kate Bosworth and her stylist, then Mary-Kate Olsen’s collection of T-shirts for StyleMint.com went live. On October 1, BeautyMint.com will join its predecessors, offering up anti-aging skincare products backed by celebrity aesthetician Nerida Joy and Jessica Simpson. [WWD]

Taylor Swift’s ads for her debut signature scent, Wonderstruck, are out and currently raking in the “likes” on Facebook. In case you were wondering, the curly girl says “no” to the blow-dryer, keeping her signature waves intact for the print visuals. [Fashion Etc.]

Another, somewhat less likely crooner is also getting in on the fragrance game: That would be Julian Casablancas—the Strokes frontman stars in new adds for Azzaro’s latest men’s offering. [Consequence of Sound]

Youve seen the Rosie Huntington-Whiteley images, and now that Burberry Body has finally landed on shelves, the house’s designer is speaking out about the impetus for the new fragrance: “We wanted to develop something that really epitomized the DNA and the spirit of the iconic Burberry trench coat,” says Christopher Bailey, referencing the “different sides” of the iconic outerwear that have now been reinterpreted through scent. “Sometimes it makes you feel sexy, sometimes it makes you feel confident, other times it makes you feel protected.” [T]

Lolavie, Officially Unofficial; Botox And The Infinite Sadness; And More…

A day before its official launch, Lolavie, Jennifer Aniston’s much-hyped new fragrance, is getting a name change; it will now go by the name Jennifer Aniston. Neither really do it for us, to be honest. [Scented Salamander]

In case you’ve somehow missed the flood of images and articles declaring the undercut a “trend,” this one’s for you. [Daily Mail]

Stop the presses. Jessica Simpson has found a wrinkle, according to the reality star’s Twitter. She is 30, so, you know, one more year until she hits her peak and then it’s all downhill from there. We can’t wait to see those tweets. [Us Weekly]

Here’s an interesting spin on last month’s report that Botox can actually make you less happy by diminishing your ability to smile and, subsequently, the brain’s ability to process the appropriate emotional response: It can also make you less sad by limiting your ability to frown. The news is somehow not comforting. [Telegraph]

The most beautiful woman of all time? Audrey Hepburn, says a new poll conducted by QVC. Princess Diana, Jennifer Aniston, and Grace Kelly also made the list. [Mirror]

In other survey news, scientists at Procter & Gamble, the company that manufactures Pantene, have released new data indicating that women feel “less hostile,” “ashamed,” “nervous,” “guilty,” or “jittery,” depending on the hair products they use. Coincidentally enough, users of a new version of Pantene reported “more joy” than those in the control group. Imagine! [WSJ]

The Price of Beauty fans, be warned. Jessica Simpson’s VH1 reality show may be getting “retooled” next season to focus more on Simpson giving people makeovers, and less on her traveling the world discovering exotic, local primping practices. [Us Weekly]

If you weren’t already nervous enough about sun-induced melanoma, there are new claims that the full-body scanners the FAA is trying to mandate in airports across the country may cause skin cancer. Hanging out in your living room’s probably looking pretty good right now. [Daily Mail]
