Kim Sears’ Winning Wimbledon Blow-Out; Ben Gorham Talks Summer Scents; Caffeinated Socks, and More…


Kim-Sears-hairKate Middleton has been the celebrity to watch at Wimbledon in recent years, but with the Duchess of Cambridge out on pre-maternity leave this time around, all eyes were on tournament champion Andy Murray’s girlfriend, Kim Sears.

There is nothing that says you can’t wear heavy scents in the summer. And to be honest, the only way to find out if it works or not is to try it,” he offered.

Yet another way to add java to your day. [Daily Mail]

Anne-Hathaway-Hair-DyeWell, that was fast. Not even a full month after debuting a red-carpet-stealing platinum-blonde dye job at this year’s Met Gala, Anne Hathaway is back to brunette. [NYDN]

Dita Von Teese does all of her own makeup, has been treating rosacea with the help of a dermatologist in Orange County for years, and stockpiles products from choice brands—as well as her own cosmetics range. So it shouldn’t be surprising that the burlesque queen had a little trouble selecting her top three beauty essentials during a recent interview. “Three? Oh my god, it’s more like 300! I have a lot of things that I absolutely can’t do without.” [Daily Mail]

The title of “Kate the Great” heretofore belongs to Ms. Middleton, not Ms. Moss. According to a new survey, the Duchess of Cambridge now beats out the super-est of them all when it comes to Britain’s most influential beauty icon. [Telegraph]

The oversize flacon rings in at a whopping $4,200. [WSJ.]
