Rihanna’s body looked crazy awesome in her crocodile Tom Ford gown last night at the Met. But the key to her svelte physique has less to do with militant, cardio-heavy workouts and more to do with her trainer’s secret weapon: a pedometer. “I tell [Rihanna] to make sure she takes 10,000 steps a day,” says personal trainer Harley Pasternak.

It was one of the first things we noticed on last night’s Met gala red carpet so it comes as no surprise that Tom Brady’s gelled back semi-faux hawk is getting a fair bit of attention on the blogosphere. Where were you on that one, Gisele? [Us]
Between Birchbox, Glossybox, Beautybar.com’s Sample Society and a barrage of other similar initiatives, there’s now a myriad way to sample the latest and greatest in product innovations on a monthly basis. That said, Total Beauty is getting in the game anyway. [WWD]
Hilary Clinton has been spotted sans makeup as she completes the final leg of her Southeast Asia tour—and she is getting a lot of flack for it. Which begs the question: foundation over function? (We’re going with function). [Fox News]
Johnny Depp sports serious talons—in addition to a face full of makeup—in Tim Burton’s new movie, Dark Shadows. How did he like the accessory? Not all that much. “In every film that I’ve been lucky enough to do with Tim, there’s always some form of torture, and the nails were Tim’s idea.” [Crave Online]
Johnny Depp On His Latest Adventures With Face Paint; Julia Louis-Dreyfus Talks Curly Hair; And More…
What inspired Johnny Depp’s unusual adaptation of The Lone Ranger‘s Tonto for the classic TV show’s upcoming movie remake? A painting by artist Kirby Sattler, that’s what. “I looked at the face of this warrior and thought: That’s it,” Depp says. “The stripes down the face and across the eyes…it seemed to me like you could almost see the separate sections of the individual.” [EW]
Move over, Dukan diet; there’s a new weight-loss fad in town. Celebrity “sports scientist” Venice A. Fulton’s book, Six Weeks to OMG, is garnering an impressive number of fans with its mix of nutritional, biochemical, genetic, and psychological know-how—as well as the hardwired belief that coffee and cold baths will spell the end of cellulite.

Curly girl Julia Louis-Dreyfus is best known for playing Seinfeld‘s frizzy-haired Elaine Benes. But the Veep star admits that during her early days on Saturday Night Live, a producer tried to convince her that she should always wear her hair straight. “Not only did I make my hair curly on Seinfeld…I enhanced the curl and made it huge,” she recalls. “I wonder if that hair wasn’t some kind of reaction.” [Jezebel]
In other hair transformation reflections, Justin Bieber’s brief flirtation with a dark brunette crop has come to an end. The pop star is back to his natural shade of dirty blond. [Hollywood Life]
We’re just going to say it: The Golden Globes are hands-down the best awards show of the year. First off, they’re actually significant. Not like the People’s Choice Awards, or whatever awards shows MTV is conjuring up at the moment. And style-wise, they usually hit a, if not perfect, than certainly interesting pitch: more formal than the Grammys, less fussy than the Oscars. In the annals of red-carpet history, the Globes have also offered up some memorable moments in bangs (Reese Witherspoon), braids (Sienna Miller), and boobs (Scarlett Johansson). So, in preparation for this weekend’s broadcast, we offer you our own beauty-themed winners’ circle. As far as early projections go, we’re looking for Michelle Williams’ pixie cut and Natalie Portman’s brows to have a big night. Click here for more.
The very important date that you’ve been waiting for since the previews started circulating last year has arrived: Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland hits theaters nationwide today, giving you a wide-screen look down the rabbit hole. Starring Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, Johnny Depp, and Mia Wasikowska as Alice, it’s a topsy-turvy display of bobbling hairdos, brows stretched up to there, aqua eye shadow, and heart-shaped puckered lips—and that’s just one character! We caught up with lead makeup artist Valli O’Reilly to find out how she revived Lewis Carroll’s classic story for the twenty-first century.
This is not the Alice in Wonderland of your childhood. How did you go about reimagining these iconic characters for a new age?
Tim [Burton]‘s films have a very specific feel. You can tell his work without even seeing the credits. For this project, he asked me to watch an old Bette Davis film, The Private Lives of Elizabeth and Essex, where she plays Queen Elizabeth and wears her hair pulled back tight, like we did for the Red Queen. I also looked at Margaret Keane’s paintings from the sixties of children with very haunting eyes. I rubbed eggplant eye shadow around Mia [Wasikowska]‘s eyes to re-create that darkness.
Have you ever wondered what two seconds of footage of Lily Donaldson thrashing her long blond locks around in the midst of four wind machines, slowed down to 1,000 frames per second, would look like? Yeah? This one’s for you. [Nowness]
The problem with renouncing plastic surgery and making statements like, “Somebody has got to give a face to getting old,” is that when you do decide to go in for a little nip/tuck, you look like a bit of a hypocrite. Not that we’d ever judge you, Jane Fonda, but… [Daily Mail]
Hatters in Victorian England often had reddish hair because of the orange-tinged mercury used in the manufacture of felt back in the day. But that’s not what compelled Tim Burton to make Johnny Depp a carrot-top in his forthcoming Alice in Wonderland adaptation. “There is just something really scary about orange hair,” Burton says. “Every performer in my childhood who had orange hair, it seemed to signify that they were not to be trusted and could be dangerous.” There was something kind of frightening about Bozo, come to think of it… [L.A.

Vogue Italia‘s new Web site is dedicating a section to plus-sized women by launching Vogue Curvy, a satellite destination that features video interviews with models like Crystal Renn and Lizzie Miller. So…it’s a “separate but equal” mentality, then? [Stylist]
