But I think that you wouldn’t want to go to a man who plays a doctor on TV to get prescribed something, would you?” —Personal trainer Tracy Anderson on former client Madonna’s decision to launch her own chain of Hard Candy gyms. Nope, she’s not bitter or anything. [Daily Mail]

Looks like Marilyn Monroe won’t be the only dead celebrity inspiring a new fragrance this year. Julian Rouas Paris is set to launch a perfume duo in homage to the late King of Pop, called Jackson’s Tribute for men and Jackson’s Legend for women.

Vandevorst, the hair team pulled a Margiela circa Fall 2009, showing back-as-front tresses on the runway. [Ok! Magazine UK]

The Truth Sets Nicole Kidman Free, Natalie Portman Is Miss Dior, And More…

The latest development in the seemingly nonstop Natalie Portman media blitz is the release of her new ads for Miss Dior Cherie, in which she poses topless (pre-baby bump) with a youthful bow in her hair. To say that she was well cast is an understatement. [Just Jared]

Forget about New Year’s detoxing resolutions; it’s time to get with “mid-toxing”—i.e., getting in shape the week before the 31st, with a plan that involves no snacking, no refined carbs, protein, veggies, and whole grains with every meal and concerted spurts of exercise. [Daily Mail]

Too bad it’s about to be come even harder to avoid temptation as alcohol companies start tapping into beauty and fashion marketing tactics to sell their product.
