The music video for “Judas,” Lady Gaga’s second single off her Born This Way LP, has arrived. One of the more compelling visuals—aside from the Jesus figure that’s dressed as a Hells Angel—comes when Gaga pulls a gun on Judas only to reveal that her weapon is in fact a bullet of pink lipstick, which she smears all over Judas’ face. The makeup is mightier than the firearm, it would appear. [NY Mag]

Aside from famously swearing by Tahitian noni juice, yoga, and her own Kora Organics skincare line, expectant mother Miranda Kerr’s other beauty indulgences include makeup artist Rose-Marie Swift’s RMS Beauty line and body brushing. “[It] stimulates blood flow and exfoliates the skin,” she says. It sure does, as anyone who saw Kerr’s exquisite nude portrait in the December issue of W is well aware. [Vogue Australia]

Gwyneth Paltrow, Country Strong star, mother of two, and poster child for the macrobiotic diet, revealed to Conan O’Brien that she not only owns a deep fryer but uses it all the time. “Fried food is my weakness. I don’t have a sweet tooth,” she says. Us too! [Daily Mail]
Speaking of full disclosure—or lack thereof—Claire Danes’ Latisse spokesperson gig may be in jeopardy as a “source” has come forward claiming that the actress, whose lashes are long and lethal, has severe hyperpigmentation from the prescription growth serum. Bad for business. [NYP]

Looks like everyone is hedging their bets now that the talk show hostess with the mostess is going off the air. [Stylelist]
There were definitely a few award recipients on last night’s 62nd annual Primetime Emmy Awards broadcast that we’ve never seen or heard of before. Archie Panjabi, we’re talking about you. But you’ll be pleased to know that facial recognition issues didn’t stop us from sizing up the beauty happenings on the red carpet. The sea of one-shouldered gowns mentioned in our event coverage? We saw right through it, instead honing in on the hair, the makeup, the nail polish, and the self-tanner. Here, our top five beauty moments—both good and not so much.
1. Black Is Back
Anna Paquin’s bold-shouldered McQueen number got all the attention. But prolonged staring revealed something else, namely an expert black nail polish job. The obsidian shade and its almost-black jewel-toned counterparts were everywhere last night, adorning the fingertips of January Jones, Lea Michele, and Jayma Mays, to name but a few. Celebrity manicurist Deborah Lippmann deserves some of the credit for the ubiquity of deep hues, as she personally painted Jones with her deep purple/burgundy Dark Side of the Moon varnish, and treated Michele to a few coats of her as yet unreleased holiday color, Lady Sings the Blues, an opaque navy with silvery blue sequined flecks.
2. Lobbed and Lovely
After letting her corn silk blond bob grow out over the summer, Mad Men‘s Jones is now the proud owner of a shoulder-grazing lob. Her hair is exactly the length at which things start to look awkward on us, but the style suits her amazingly well, as did the matte texture of her undone ‘do, which came courtesy of her go-to stylist, Mark Townsend. Townsend’s collaborator, makeup artist Rachel Goodwin, channeled Lisa Fonssagrives, leaving Jones’ face bare and re-creating the mid-century model’s signature extended eyeliner with Chanel’s Liquid Eyeliner in Noir. Two coats of its Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir on the top lashes and one coat in Purple on the bottom finished the look.
3. A Woman of Her Word
Claire Danes’ blond mane was also impressive, but it was her extreme lashes that really got us. Danes has been a spokesperson for Latisse for a few months now, and she takes her job very seriously; the award-winning Temple Grandin star is walking proof that the prescription serum works. Those things are lethal!
4. Bigger: Is It Better?
Sleek, straight looks were the style of choice last night, although there were a few dissenters willing to go the vertical distance. The Office‘s Mindy Kaling and Glee‘s Naya Rivera engaged in a high-hair-off, both sporting exaggerated, structural topknot situations that definitely stood out from the crowd.
5. Blinded by Bronzer
An over-tanned Heidi Klum got plenty of stares, and not just because of her super-short Marchesa dress. The Project Runway star went a little trigger happy with her self-tanner and bronzer. Everything in moderation, liebchen.
Marc Jacobs took home the prize at last year’s FiFis, and this year’s winner will be—drumroll, please—Michael Kors. The Fragrance Foundation has just announced that the designer will be honored with its annual Hall of Fame award at the ceremony in June “in recognition of his major contributions to the American perfume industry.” With his makeup launch in January and the CFDA Lifetime Achievement Award, it’s really been a banner year for MK thus far. Haircare for Fall, maybe? [Scented Salamander]
Does Hillary Clinton Bumpit? She’s not the only high- (ha ha) profile type being accused of using the plastic inserts to add volume to their ‘dos. Some insiders have suggested that we have “New Jersey TV women,” a.k.a. Jersey Shore‘s Snooki, to thank for the trend. We’re not prepared to go that far, but we will definitely admit that bigger is all of a sudden better. [NYT]
As tempting as it may be to get all of Latisse’s results at a fraction of the cost, cheaper generic alternatives to the lash-enhancing drug that are being sold on the Internet may not be safe and come with their own laundry list of potential side effects. Our advice is to play it safe, keep your irises from turning brown, and just go with extensions. [StyleList]
And try to go organic, while you’re at it. A new study suggests that common chemicals found in a wide range of personal care products may lead to delayed or early puberty in girls and increase their risk for health problems later in life. Sca-ry. [MSN]
