Naomi Campbell, who once famously told Playboy magazine, “I never diet. I smoke. I drink now and then. I never work out. I work very hard and I am worth every cent,” revealed on Oprah yesterday that she does the master cleanse at least three times a year these days, sometimes for 18 days straight. Well, that explains those aggression issues. [Guardian]
In other “how do they stay so trim?” news, Jennifer Lopez is the latest celebrity to touch on her dieting secrets, which appear to be as simple as portion control. “If you can learn to not eat till your stomach feels full and gross, then you can pretty much control your life in that area,” she told Marie Claire U.K. Not exactly an endorsement for healthy eating, but not nearly as controversial as Kate Moss’ “nothing tastes as good as skinny feels.” That really seemed to rub people the wrong way.

Even big beauty brands fall victim to Facebook’s way of making you measure your worth in your number of friend requests. A new list is out detailing the ten least popular brands when it comes to social networking. Oh, the shame! [Independent]
The scent of a supermodel? Greed, alleges Naomi Campbell’s perfume licensing company. [NY Post]
A new study provides further evidence that curvy is in, “fashionably thin” is out. Bring on the pumpkin pie. [Daily Mail]
Roy Orbison lives on in fragrance form. Pretty Woman, the scent, is coming to a beauty purveyor near you. [Luxist]
With the Japanese leading the charge, masculine maintenance is on the rise. In China, men are reaching for skincare, in France it’s fragrance, and in America, it’s all about the teeth whiteners. Anything to detract from the bigger issue of premature balding, we assume. [Allure]
When we chatted with François Nars last spring after his heralded return to the world of backstage beauty, he was just as excited to talk to us about cameras as concealers. The face painter, who moonlights as a shutterbug, has published two different photography books and will be debuting his third effort next month. “It’s the same approach,” Nars says of his favorite mediums. “When you make up someone you want them to feel good and beautiful. With photography, it’s the same: Make the light beautiful, have fun.” 15×15, as his new tome is called, will be available for 30 days only when it bows in mid-November, and there’s a countdown to its release currently in progress at www.15x15project.com. The celebrity portraits in the new book channel iconic images, people, and emotions while giving some face time (or nail time, as the case may be) to a classic Nars product. That would be Nars Dovima lacquer on Marc Jacobs, who is re-enacting a sixties-era Richard Avedon photo above. Other friends of the brand, including Isabella Rossellini, Naomi Campbell, Daphne Guinness, and Olivier Theyskens, also make cameos. Something to add to your holiday wish list, for sure. [WWD]
London is usually all about goth and edge, but Graeme Black, the great Scotsman who was once head of Ferragamo, is a bit of an outlier. As noted by this site’s fashion reporters, he “doesn’t really do ‘relaxed.” Lucky for us, however, hairstylist Sam McNight does. Playing off Black’s unrelentingly elegant and refined sentiment, McKnight—who has worked his magic on the heads of Linda Evangelista, Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Gisele Bündchen, Uma Thurman, Elizabeth Hurley, and Princess Diana—conjured up a backstage look that was as accessible as it was pristine. “The colors and feel of the show—it was all so Maharani,” McKnight explained. “So we used blow-dryers and curlers to create, I guess, a bird’s nest—a loose chignon that looks slightly blown by what could be trade winds in the East. Very sexy, very blustery, and very polished—not hard to do,” McKnight insists. A messy bun for some D.I.Y. Hollywood-by-way-of-Bollywood glamour does sound easy enough to pull off. Do try this at home.
First Naomi Campbell, Claudia Schiffer, and Eva Herzigova graced the cover of Vogue Korea’s August issue. Now Ms. Herzigova has taken solo control of Numéro Tokyo’s September book. The creative direction for the spread, shot by Alex Cayley, is strikingly similar to something we’ve seen before. A sheer pink lip; clean, perfect skin; that piercing, veiled glance: It’s screaming Valentino Fall Couture. An homage to Karl Templer’s runway styling prowess, perhaps? Regardless, we’re glad to see Eva is still getting work along with the rest of the supes. She’s looking just as good as she did in her heyday, no?
