The Cosmetics Executive Women’s annual Beauty Awards were doled out this weekend, making winners out of some shoe-ins (Marc Jacobs’ Lola, for one) and a few unlikely heroes, as well. The indie brand Living Proof took home not one but three awards. Interestingly, Estelle represented in an equally disproportionate number of categories, making a beauty deal for the British-born songstress seem imminent. [WWD]
Those raunchy Miss USA pictures drummed up a ton of press for Donald Trump’s Vegas extravaganza—and pageants in general, it would appear. With interest in the crown and sash renewed, Miss America is coming back to network TV, ABC specifically, after being relegated to TLC last year. Get ready for many cringe-worthy prime-time talent competitions to come. [Variety]
Kylie Minogue admits to dabbling in Botox in the past, but now the 41-year-old Aussie pop star is coming out against it and other age-defiers, vowing never again to change her looks with plastic surgery. This sounds like another Jane Fonda case in the making. [Daily Mail]
One thing Minogue isn’t swearing off is her celebrity fragrance franchise. Pink Sparkle, her latest olfactory creation, inspired by rosé bubbly, hits stores this summer. [Scented Salamander]
Kylie Minogue has been out and about in London this week, and the Aussie pop star has offered up yet another “put down your blow-dryer” endorsement (see our post about Marion Cotillard from last week). Curly again in 2010? Let us know your thoughts below.
To combat the tough economic times, Coty Inc. intends to “stick with what works,” according to Cosmetic News, which in this case means continuing to throw its weight behind celebrity fragrances. The company plans to roll out five star-backed scents this fall. On offer will be new installments of the Beckhams’ successful Signature men’s and women’s franchise, a second fragrance from Tim McGraw, and an olfactory debut from his wife, Faith Hill. The fifth new Coty launch, Kate Moss’ third fragrance, a fruity floriental called Vintage, will also roll out in September, although its global launch does not include the U.S., where Moss presumably doesn’t sell well at the mass level (she’s not exactly Wal-Mart material—which is a good thing). As for future collaborative efforts, Kylie Minogue has been encouraged to try her hand at men’s fragrances, which should be…interesting, to say the least. We’re legitimate fans of the original Britney perfume from Elizabeth Arden (it smells surprisingly good on the skin), so we definitely see the appeal of celebrity fragrances but wonder if perhaps it’s time to leave well enough alone? Thoughts on the trend and any personal favorites you’d like to call out?
Before last night’s Coty-DKMS gala, Kylie Minogue helped light the Empire State Building in honor of the sponsors’ Linked Against Leukemia partnership flaunting a very vivid red lip. This is the first time we’ve seen the Aussie pop star working the paparazzi circuit in a while, and also the first time we’ve expressed an anti-statement lips sentiment. We can’t tell if it’s the color/skin tone combo or the close-up of her peculiarly smooth skin that’s off-putting, but something’s not sitting right. Thoughts on the look?
Ever wonder how Kylie Minogue stays so young-looking? You probably have your theories, but here’s one answer you may not have considered. Kylie, it seems, is well aware of the timeless beauty adage “Whatever you do to your face, do to your neck,” and she has been treating this sensitive area—décolletage included—with StriVectin’s neck cream, according to the company. A new formula specifically developed for the skin below your jaw line, the lifting, toning, and firming cream dramatically reduces the appearance of wrinkles, age spots, and dreaded “turkey neck,” so you’re left with smoother, younger-looking contours. It’s still a topical solution and definitely can’t compete with the effects of a full-fledged neck-lift, but seeing as how the brand is known for results-driven products—its StriVectin-SD is unique in its ability to actually combat stretch marks—Kylie might indeed be on to something.
