According to new reports, it looks like Kate Middleton’s wedding hair will be fashioned into an updo by her trusted stylist Richard Ward, before it’s topped off with a tiara. But Ward’s peers in the styling community aren’t convinced. “She would look better with it down,” Kate Moss’ go-to stylist James Brown has asserted. (It’s safe to say that the future Mrs. Jamie Hince will be long and lovely when she ties the knot this summer.) [Telegraph]
Liv Tyler’s news ad for L’Intense, the latest iteration of Givenchy’s Very Irrésistible, are out and in a refreshing change of pace, the visuals for the earthy, sensual eau feature Tyler with not a stitch of makeup on her perfect porcelain complexion. “I’ve learned all my skincare tips from my mother, grandmother, and father,” Tyler says. She also credits masks, Tracie Martyn facials, and the Clarisonic skin brush for her ability to successfully go sans maquillage. [T]

Liv Tyler has been making the front-row rounds this month and let us just say, bravo. At Givenchy, she easily bested Kanye West in the battle of the Rottweiler sweater, accessorizing it with minimal makeup and her signature lustrous locks blown out and middle parted. A few weeks earlier at Proenza Schouler, she added a retina-burning red lip to the equation. But last night may have been her best showing yet. At the Target GO International Designer Collective Launch in New York, she worked an interesting (and less permanent) adaptation of 2009′s “side shave,” tightly French-braiding the right side of her head to create the illusion of a buzz cut and leaving the left side long and flowing. All the better to properly rock that cropped leather jacket, of course. Thoughts on her latest beauty effort?
The orange-lip discussion points just keep coming! At Charlize Theron’s African Outreach project dinner last night in New York, Liv Tyler sported a high-shine, deep tangerine gloss. It reminded us of the lacquered pumpkin pouts Charlotte Tilbury whipped up backstage at Jill Stuart this season, layering a lipstick and gloss from the designer’s eponymous cosmetics collection for opacity and glisten. We’ve got a hunch that Tyler’s carrot-tinged mouth came courtesy of a single application of Givenchy’s Gloss Interdit in Succulent Orange, though—a product for which she has served as brand ambassador. This particular gloss is highly pigmented with a distinctive sheen and offers up yet another option for your at-home trials with the poppy pout color. What do you think of Tyler’s ode to apricot?
Scarlett Johansson’s new sexed-up ad campaign for D&G The Makeup’s Fall collection hit the Web today, and it’s a slight departure from last season’s. First and foremost, her typically heaving chest is uncharacteristically covered up; secondly, she’s gone from pinup girl to vamp in what amounts to yet another endorsement for the purple lip. (We told you it was going to be a big thing.) [Daily Mail]
Jennifer Aniston may be a huge Hollywood star, but her skincare habits are more high school than high-profile. The A-lister apparently swears by Neutrogena’s Facial Bar for all of her skin-cleansing needs. That’s, like, so Jen to be so down-to-earth, you know? [Marie Claire U.K.]
Speaking of high school beauty habits, Fergie recently revealed that long before she launched Outspoken, her fragrance with Avon, she bathed in Dior’s Poison in homage to the Bell Biv DeVoe song of the same name. [Allure]
The owner of a Beverly Hills beauty salon is being charged with fraud for ringing up thousands of dollars in unauthorized charges on her celebrity clients’ credit cards. Boldfaced names including Liv Tyler and jewelry designer Loree Rodkin are out a combined 282K! [AP]
And in other hair news, Anderson Cooper is being propositioned to lose his gray hair to the tune of $1 million. A pharmaceutical company hoping to market a pill that turns silver hair back to its original color wants to use Cooper as a spokesperson—provided he tweets and twitpics his progress along the way, of course. [Huff Po]
Here are some truths about me and my exercise regimen: 1) I don’t do well with trainers or classes; 2) I go through on and off phases: When I’m on, I run and swim; when I’m off, I watch a lot of TV while sitting in spandex shorts and talking about going to the gym; and 3) my overall goal is strength, not slimness—specifically in my abs and arms.
Item 1 often offsets item 3, as my problems with authority and regimented schedules preclude me from learning any new muscle-building techniques (my core-tightening knowledge begins and ends with antiquated workouts I learned from playing high-school sports many moons ago). Celebrity fitness and wellness expert David Kirsch seemed to have me in mind when he penned his new tome, David Kirsch’s Abs & Arms, which went on sale this weekend. The illustrated book takes you through a number of do-it-yourself exercises, with user-friendly instructions for proper usage of the “stability ball” so you can get a washboard stomach and svelte—not bulky—biceps à la Liv Tyler, Karolina Kurkova, Linda Evangelista, and Heidi Klum, the latter of whom Kirsch got back onto the Victoria’s Secret runway just eight weeks after she gave birth in 2005. Kirsch also provides a guide to following his patented high protein/low carb diet, which will help you see maximum results from all the reverse plank and pike push-ups on the agenda. The paperback has actually inspired me to return to the gym after a brief hiatus, if only so I can try out some of my fancy new moves in public and finally break free from the try-whatever-the-woman-next-to-me-is-doing approach.
