Today, hairstylists the world over had a major win as far as gaining recognition for their craft on the big screen. After celebrity stylist Ted Gibson started a Facebook campaign last year to try to get the Academy of Motion Pictures to recognize hairstyling, not just makeup artistry, at the Oscars, the Academy has obliged him, changing the Best Makeup category to the Makeup and Hairstyling Award.

More news on Kristen Stewart’s forthcoming Balenciaga fragrance. It will be called Florabotanica and it’s meant to be “a game-changer,” according to Coty Prestige, in that it will draw a younger customer to the house that Nicolas Ghesquière is rebuilding. [WWD]
First came Wonderstruck, now comes word that Taylor Swift will be releasing her second fragrance, Enchanted Wonderstruck, in September. The passionfruit, pink poppy, sugar-glazed champaca petals, and vanilla eau will launch this fall as “the next chapter” of Swift’s Wonderstruck story. [WWD]
In case you weren’t aware, MAC Cosmetics is a trendsetter. The mega brand not only creates a wealth of the fashion-forward makeup looks backstage during fashion week, but some of its more clever branding ideas continue to get repeat play. After its own Hello, Kitty line spawned another Hello, Kitty collection at Sephora, Disney is reprising MAC’s Venomous Villains collection with its own Villains beauty line set to hit stores in September. Apparently, Cruella de Vil eyeliner, Maleficent lipstick, and Ursula blush doesn’t get old. [Bella Sugar]
Kristen Stewart just might be the world’s most unlikely fashion and beauty icon. That the newly named face of Parfums Balenciaga is gorgeous, talented, and frequently well styled has somehow managed to trump the fact that she seems way happier in those signature low-top Converse, skinny jeans, and a leather jacket. But no matter: She puts on mascara and a red-carpet gown with the best of them—and often better than the rest of them, which was the case last night at the London premiere of Snow White and the Huntsman. K-Stew matched a silver, smoked-out eye and a nude lip with an insane lace Marchesa dress that boasted almost skeletal-like embroidery in the back. And while the gold-link chain she strung up in her texturized updo struck us as a little haphazard, it worked because of Stewart’s overriding “I don’t care” attitude, which, of course, makes her that much cooler. Can you dig it?
Since dyeing her hair jet black last summer for her upcoming role in this June’s Snow White and the Huntsman, Kristen Stewart has slowly been getting back to her warm chestnut roots. This weekend, the transition appeared to be complete as the Twilight star and newly named face of parfums Balenciaga made the late-show rounds with lighter, mahogany locks. As for Stewart’s signature side-swept natural texture—and devil-may-care beauty attitude—we’re happy to report that both seemed perfectly intact. Which color do you prefer?
Move over, Charlotte Gainsbourg. Balenciaga’s Nicolas Ghesquière has a new muse—and her name is Kristen Stewart. The Twilight star has just been named the new face of the French house’s forthcoming fragrance. [WWD]
It looks like Jo Malone’s whimsical launch for its last scent, Wild Blue Bell, was just the beginning of the brand’s “coolification.” The fragrance house has just named stylist and i-D fashion director Charlotte Stockdale its first-ever style editor. We’re holding our breath for some one-eye-shut ad campaigns. [Vogue.U.K.]
Kimora Lee Simmons is the latest celebrity to flex her skincare muscle. The Baby Phat designer has launched Shinto Clinical, a full range of East-meets-West complexion savers based on “cultures that live from the sea.” [WWD]
Snake venom creams and bee sting serums are old news. It’s all about dragon’s blood sculpting gels, which are formulated with the red sap of the sangre de drago tree. Lady Gaga is already a fan of the exotic plumping and sculpting elixir, as if there were any doubt. [Daily Mail]
Forget the breakup bob. Katy Perry is pioneering breakup blue. The pop star’s cobalt-hued hair color du jour will presumably help her forget all about her impending divorce from actor Russell Brand. [Us Weekly]
