Well, 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]
Mark another one for Kate Moss. The super-est of them all—who has hawked everything from Chanel and Saint Laurent to Topshop, Rimmel makeup, and her own fragrance line—has just inked a deal with St. Tropez to become the new face (and body) of the British skin-finishing company. Moss, a longtime client of St. Tropez global tanning expert Nichola Joss, has been using the line of self-tanners and bronzing products as an alternative to year-round sun exposure “since they started,” and is quick to point out that she always feels “more confident” with its special brand of faux glow. The Skin Cancer Foundation couldn’t have asked for a better start to its Thursday.

The innovative new Skin Rescuer by Kiehl’s claims to minimize stress…on our skin, at least. [WWD]
Lauren “Tiger Queen” Hutton shares, in a new interview with Net-a-Porter, that in the early days of Kate Moss’ career, she jumped to her defense. “Kate, whom I knew when she was 14, was always being made fun of by the other models. They were jealous, but I was the tiger queen, so I could crack the whip over them.” [HuffPo]
Jerry Hall talks beauty and style with her home state’s Houston Chronicle. A few notable likes and dislikes—”I like smoking, drinking, and coffee, but not too much…everything within moderation”; “I don’t exercise. I don’t like to waste energy on nothing”; “I like the B-movie-starlet look: skin-tight skirts, tight tops, a little bit naughty.” And her antiaging secret? Olive oil. “I give myself a thorough olive-oil soak every week…I just pour a bottle on me and stand around rubbing it in. It’s the best thing in the world for your skin, nails, eyelashes, everything.” [Houston Chronicle]

Jennifer Aniston walks the red carpet at the premiere of Call Me Crazy, the Lifetime movie she produced, with visible cupping marks on her back. Call us crazy, but we would have opted for a dress that wasn’t strapless. [New York Daily News]
At an Oregon company, the boss really does know all: new technology is tracking employees’ diet and exercise habits in an effort to improve their overall health, and, in turn, their work. [Wired]
Throwback Thursdays is a new feature on Beauty Counter in which we pore over the pages of our favorite glossies from decades past in search of a little modern-day makeup and hair inspiration.
The Model: Kate Moss
The Moment: Feathers embellishments.
The Motivation: Remember, like…two years back, when out of nowhere feathered hair extensions took the street-style set—and young Hollywood—by storm? They became so popular, in fact, there were reports of a shortage of the long, colorful plumage that also happens to be used by fly fishermen. Luckily, it was a fleeting thing, but birds of a fashion feather have been flocking together for quite some time. From Alexis Mabille’s Fall 2011 Couture show to Jason Wu’s Spring 2012 runway, editorial hairstylists have been using the colorful accessories for years, as evidenced by this Arthur Elgort-lensed shoot for Vogue Italia circa 1992. Ms. Moss appears to have entwined her feather headdress with a Heidi-style braid, and finished the look with an unexpected smoky eye. (Kate, always a trendsetter.) It goes without saying that this would be a great way to up the ante on the summer festival circuit, where feathers and fringe tend to show up en masse.
