At Vogue U.K.’s Vogue Festival in London this weekend, Donatella Versace revealed a little insight into her beauty regimen. “I stopped working with a personal trainer, as he wouldn’t let me smoke,” the formidable Italian designer admitted, adding “I’m not like this genetically. I use tons of cream and take care of my hair and skin.” [Vogue U.K.]

First came the aloe-vera-infused jeans that claim to moisturize parched limbs as you wear them, and now comes word of caffeine-tinged shapewear designed to break down cellulite while creating a smoother silhouette. What will they think of next? [Daily Mail]

Celebrity beauty deals are starting to get ugly.

Diane Kruger for Chanel Skincare; Beauty Lessons To Be Learned From Margaret Thatcher; And More…

“No matter what makeup you do, flawless skin is your canvas for everything,” Diane Kruger told us in an interview last year. Now it appears as though the actress’ devotion to her complexion has paid off. Kruger has just been named the first-ever face of Chanel skincare. [HuffPo]

Lauren Bush Lauren and her FEED initiative have teamed up with Clarins for a second charitable collaboration that pairs a newly designed FEED bag with a six-piece product lineup, which will offer Macy’s customers a “gift with purpose” through April 20. [People]

Margaret Thatcher, who passed away this morning at age 87, was as much of a beauty icon as a political legend. “However late and however tired, I use cleanser to get the makeup off, and then a good moisturizer,” she once said of her skincare regimen, adding “there is a nonsense about intelligent women not being beautiful. There is no genetic link between brains and beauty. Most women are far more intelligent than people give them credit for.” [Telegraph]

…Yet somehow, all these years later, the debate rages on. Following an offhanded comment in which President Obama called friend and supporter California Attorney General Kamala Harris “the best-looking” AG in the country, a new study found that comments like this can tarnish the perception of women in executive roles. The moment a woman contending for power within the system of power gets talked about as if she’s contending for top marks within the system of beauty, it diminishes her standing in the other power realm, the findings contend.
