The wait is officially over. Kate Middleton finally gave birth to a healthy eight-pound boy yesterday, who will be third in line to the British throne. Aside from his name, which remains a mystery, the question that is apparently on everyone’s mind is, What will the Duchess of Cambridge be eating to recover? Two pizzas were reportedly delivered to St. Mary’s Hospital following the delivery, and according to pregnancy expert and midwife Zita West, “Carbs are exactly what Catherine needs…. Women who have just given birth often crave nourishing foods.” Let the carbo loading commence. [British Vogue]
Speaking of baby advice, Miranda Kerr recently advocated using rosehip oil throughout pregnancy. “I don’t have a single stretch mark—I had a ten-pound baby! It’s really nourishing and full of antioxidants and essential fatty acids,” she said. Kerr’s lack of lines likely has something to do with her sterling genetics and ultra-healthy lifestyle, but we’ll take any recommendation if it’s a shot at getting a body like hers. [Into The Gloss]
Hairstylist Serge Normant gave Elle some tips and tricks. The secret weapon in his arsenal? Dry shampoo. “I’ve used dry shampoo my whole career—it’s an absolute must. We have a tendency to touch our hair all day, whether consciously or not, so it often goes flat by the end of the day, and dry shampoo is a quick fix that can make you feel refreshed, even if it doesn’t make you feel squeaky clean,” he said. “It will also extend the life of a blow-dry. Or if you have to put your hair up and it’s too limp, it’s perfect. It will help anchor a ponytail or even a teased-up sixties-inspired look by adding volume and texture.” [Elle]

And now one for the indie music fans among you. Father John Misty, a.k.a Josh Tillman, formerly of the band Fleet Foxes, is releasing a women’s fragrance to go along with his new album, Funtimes in Babylon. The sweet orange oil, Tunisian neroli, violet absolute, bourbon, vanilla, and jasmine eau will be called Innocence—and is not a joke, apparently. Hey, it worked for Justin Bieber. [Pitchfork]
Two years ago, when Miranda Kerr was quoted saying that she “will not go a day without coconut oil,” pointing out that she typically ingests about four tablespoons of the essential fatty acid-rich elixir a day, sales of the stuff spiked. That’s just a small window into how influential the Victoria’s Secret model has become on matters of health and wellness. An avid yoga practitioner and a fan of eating raw and organic, Kerr caught the attention of the beauty world when she launched her own all-natural skincare line, KORA Organics—a twenty-one-piece lineup of face and body essentials—that is as eco-luxe as it gets. “The range is exactly what I was looking for myself but was unable to find,” says Kerr. “I receive daily testimonies from customers all over the world who have firsthand seen the benefits of using KORA,” she insists—although getting a steady supply of the natural-ingredient-packed range is easier said than done if you live outside of Australia.
But that’s all about to change. This week, Kerr has announced an exclusive partnership with Net-a-Porter, whose newly launched beauty section will now stock select KORA items for a broader, American and European audience. “I personally love to shop at Net-a-Porter. It’s an easy, luxurious experience,” Kerr admits, adding that her Revitalizing Body Pack is a great place to start if you’re new to the line. “It includes my essentials for radiant, glowing skin for your body: Exfoliating Cream, Energizing Citrus Mist, Enriched Body Lotion, and Luxurious Rosehip Body Oil. [The oil] is one of my all-time favorite products.”
As for Kerr’s other tips for maintaining an angelic body—and lifestyle—she’s all about balance. “I live by the 80/20 rule. Moderation is key and essential. I try my best to fill my body with healthy organic food when I can, but enjoy a little indulgence every now and then! I believe if we choose to fill our bodies with healthy food, our minds with healthy thoughts, and nurture our spirit with rituals we enjoy, it can lead to a solid foundation of happiness.” Noted.

With Alexander Wang officially in at Balenciaga, inquiring minds want to know if that means Kristen Stewart is out. The Balenciaga fragrance face might not jive with Wang’s ties to Liberty Ross, the model and wife of Rupert Sanders, with whom Stewart had a very public affair this summer, conspiracy theorists assert. There’s been no official comment from the French house—or Coty Prestige, which holds its fragrance license—but our bet is K-Stew will stay put, even without Nicolas Ghesquière, who brought her there in the first place. Fragrance contracts are binding, don’t ya know. [E!]
