Legendary Faces Take On New Roles At Storied Beauty Brands (And Glossies); Oreos Aren’t As Innocent As They Seem; And More
She famously declared that it’s the only thing she wore to bed, and now Marilyn Monroe has been posthumously named the newest face of Chanel No. 5. Upon discovering an unreleased recording of the icon’s testament to her favorite fragrance in the Monroe archives, the fashion house knew it had enough material to create a campaign—minus an in-the-flesh spokeswoman. The print and television ads are set to roll out in November.
Katy Perry illustrates that California girls are undeniable (along with easy, breezy, and beautiful) as she announced via Twitter that she’s CoverGirl’s newest star…or should we say, firework?
A different kind of cover girl is getting a corner office—Kate Moss was named as contributing fashion editor at British Vogue. We can’t wait to see her work wardrobe. [Vogue.co.uk]
Now you actually have an excuse for polishing off an entire row of Oreos—they’re as addictive as cocaine. According to researchers at Connecticut College in New London, rats were found to exhibit similar qualities around the cookie as they do when presented with nose candy. Another critical observation that came out of this study: Rodents also eat the cream filling first. [DailyMail.co.uk]
Comedy Central may have “roasted” James Franco last night in Culver City, but at the VMAs in Brooklyn, it was all about grills. Rihanna was decidedly understated this year—wearing cuffed jeans, an MC Lyte tee, a diamond-studded collar, and a tiny cross positioned between her two front teeth. And while this isn’t the first time that RiRi debuted some bedazzled dental work (wearing a much larger gold gun earlier in the month), this bite-sized version is something we can get on board with (especially when compared to Katy Perry’s over-the-top, rainbow, diamond-studded “ROAR” mouthpiece). With everyone from Madge to Queen Bey giving their pearly whites a serious gilt trip, we’re wondering if the mouth party will become as mainstream as the arm party? And an even bigger question, will Lara Stone or Georgia May Jagger fill their famous gaps with grills? Time (and teeth) shall tell.
Coco has a crop, Lady Gaga is wearing Queen Bey’s waves, and now Kelly Osbourne has a new set of fringe (which she debuted only a few hours ago on Instagram). We’re reminded of that moment in Legally Blonde, in which Elle’s friend Serena proudly proclaims, “I got bangs! My hair is so now!”
Oxygen has plans to launch a competition show, Nailed It!, in which contestants will go head-to-head (or rather, hand-to-hand) in an attempt to win the title of ultimate nail artist. We think a great challenge would be to re-create Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel ceiling using all ten tips as a canvas. Network execs, take note. [Variety]
Katy Perry owns the throne and sheds a powdered wig for her latest fragrance, Killer Queen. Check out the thirty-second video clip on The Cut.
We discussed the nose ring on Daria’s cover of Paris Vogue earlier this summer, but her wavy, windswept hair wasn’t too shabby either. Now actress Rebecca Hall is rocking the model’s look on the red carpet. [Byrdie]
I thought I should publicly disclose a secret: I’ve never been to Los Angeles. Every time people hear this, they gasp and stare at me like a deer in headlights, as if I’ve just told them that I love Amanda Bynes’ courtroom wigs. And while I haven’t seen the HOLLYWOOD sign, skipped down the Walk of Fame, or stayed at Chateau Marmont, now I can don the city’s top-shelling shades from NARS. Launching in September exclusively in the Sunshine State, the brand created a limited-edition gift set that features its nail lacquer in Trouville and lip gloss in Turkish Delight, both pastel pinks. To complete the look, included is a palette filled with four shadows—Abyssinia (a beige-y pearl), Étrusque (antique gold), Outremer (cobalt blue), and Bali (cocoa brown)—along with Deep Throat (a sheer, peach blush) and bronzer in, what else, Laguna. The cosmetic company says there may be more city editions to come, although it isn’t revealing which locale is up next. Katy Perry says that California girls are undeniable, but I like to think that New Yorkers are just as fine, fresh, and fierce. Perhaps we’ll soon have a palette to match our state of mind.
NARS Loves Los Angeles, $75, available at Barneys New York, Beverly Hills; Saks Fifth Avenue, Beverly Hills; and Nordstrom (Topanga, Glendale, Westside, Farmers’ Market, Santa Anita, and Santa Monica)
Katy Perry opened up to WWD about her new fragrance, Killer Queen (named after the song), due out in August. “Freddie Mercury painted the lyrics of this woman who I wanted to be. She seemed very powerful, and she captivated a room when she walked in,” Perry said. She went on to jokingly call her new business partner, Coty, “Daddy Warbucks” and touched on the possibility of starting a fashion line one day. “I’m not saying I’ll be good at all of it, but I’m going to swing.”
Helen Mirren’s still got it. The 67-year-old actress has a better bikini bod than many women half her age and still likes to have fun with her beauty routine. During a recent appearance on The Tonight Show, Jay Leno showed Mirren a recent picture of herself with pink hair. She explained her color change was inspired by a contestant on America’s Next Top Model who kept switching her hair between blonde and pink. “Obviously, I got the idea that it washes out very easily, so I thought it would be fun to have pink hair.” Rock on, Helen.
Readers were taken aback when Gwyneth Paltrow, seemingly the healthiest person on the planet, disagreed with doctors and endorsed (gasp) tanning in a recent British Cosmopolitan interview. “We’re human beings, and the sun is the sun—how can it be bad for you? I think we should all get sun and fresh air,” Paltrow said. “I don’t think anything that is natural can be bad for you—it’s really good to have at least fifteen minutes of sun a day.”
A study in Boston found that the smoke given off during laser-hair-removal procedures contains harmful toxins and chemicals that could put both humans and animals in danger. Dr. Gary S. Chuang looked into the problem after noticing a “foul,” sulfuric odor the smoke emitted each time he performed laser hair removal. The potentially game-changing results of his research will be published in a medical journal shortly. Until then, it’s not-so-smooth sailing for spas and salons offering the service.
