Julianne Moore Thinks Plastic Surgery “Just Looks Weird”; Uma Thurman Has A Makeup Malfunction; And More…-------
Get this: Julianne Moore turns 50 this year! The actress doesn’t look a day over 40, thanks in large part to staying out of the sun, Oil of Olay with SPF 15, and a vegetable-based red hair dye—but not plastic surgery. “I hate to condemn people for doing it, but I don’t believe it makes people look better,” she says in the November issue of Allure. “I think it just makes them look like they had something done to their face, and I don’t think we instinctively find that appealing…It just looks weird.” [StyleList]
Wardrobe malfunction, meet makeup malfunction. Uma Thurman made a rare beauty misstep at the Feminist Press at the City University of New York’s 40th Annual Gala last night when she hastily applied her blotting powder. Blend, Uma. Blend. [NYDN]

If you missed out on snagging one of the nine bottles of Guerlain’s L’Abeille de Guerlain when the rare fragrance arrived in New York last month, one more of the French brand’s spendy parfum has just landed at Harvey Nichols in Hong Kong. The transcontinental airfare you’ll need to get your hands on it is nothing compared to the handmade, individually numbered Baccarat crystal flacon’s $19,232 asking price. [WSJ]
Speaking of exceptional fragrances, New York’s Museum of Arts and Design will open The Art of Scent: 1889-2011 next fall.
