Angels dropped in on New York’s IAC building last night, but not the Victoria Secret variety. We’re talking about Thierry Mugler Angels—ambassadors of the legendary designer’s famous fragrance—Naomi Watts and Eva Mendes. It was Mendes’ official coming-out party as a new face of the forthcoming Angel Eau de Toilette and the classic eau de parfum and Mr. Mugler himself was in attendance.
“I have a great memory from Angel, having spent a long passage of time with these people,” Watts told Style.com before the unveiling of Mendes’ new campaign. “The fragrance is strong, gives you confidence, and it’s not overpowering.” There may be something to that, as the patchouli-heavy eau gave Mendes the self-assurance to do something a little out of character: sing. “I had a blast,” Mendes says of belting out Noel Harrison’s “The Windmills of Your Mind,” which she recorded with a 30-piece orchestra for the EDT’s commercial that airs this Fall. (Mendes will reportedly use her pipes on camera again to star as opera legend Maria Callas in an upcoming film about her life.) The actress also mustered up the courage to climb into a harness for the TV spot. “If you haven’t been in a harness like that before, I highly recommend it,” she joked.

The music video for “Judas,” Lady Gaga’s second single off her Born This Way LP, has arrived. One of the more compelling visuals—aside from the Jesus figure that’s dressed as a Hells Angel—comes when Gaga pulls a gun on Judas only to reveal that her weapon is in fact a bullet of pink lipstick, which she smears all over Judas’ face. The makeup is mightier than the firearm, it would appear. [NY Mag]
Rihanna’s Reb’l Fleur has been censored in Kuwait—at least the print ad has. The Kuwaiti version of the campaign features a closed-robe Ri-Ri, sans suggestive sternum-baring. [Jezebel]
And now for today’s celebrity beauty contract news: Eva Mendes and Naomi Watts have been named hair ambassadors for Pantene. [People]
Naomi Watts has been consistently bringing her A-game to red-carpet events. She rocked one of our favorite beauty looks to the Met gala this year, killed it in Cannes, and you know what? We’re even enamored with the messy buns and bare face she’s been snapped sporting in the West Village while playing with her kids this summer. It should come as no surprise, then, that she brought the big guns with her to last night’s Salt premiere in L.A.—a.k.a. hairstylist to the stars Robert Vetica. “It was quite a change for Naomi,” Vetica says of Watts’ cornsilk blond blunt cut that was a bit longer in front and slightly higher in back (Vetica took off two inches pre-premiere). Razor-texturized side-swept bangs completed the look, which was pulled together with Moroccanoil Light—a recent release from the celebrity-favorite brand that works better on fine hair that can’t take too much conditioning. The final result: strands that looked light and airy—and managed to steal much of the spotlight, despite the presence of the Jolie-Pitts. Yeah, we said it.
Naomi Watts is back. After sporting one of our favorite beauty looks at the Met gala this year, the starlet has been killing it in Cannes with a variety of different hair and makeup schemes. At the premiere of Woody Allen’s You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger this weekend, the actress opted for a middle part, soft waves, and a dynamite red lip, only to switch it up for Chopard’s 150th anniversary party last night, going with a sleek and straight side part, a creamy nude pout, and a strong, black-rimmed eye. Talk about range. Which look do you prefer?
Between the debut of the Thierry Mugler Edition collection in Paris last month and costuming Beyoncé’s world tour, Thierry Mugler’s comeback appears to be in full swing. Appropriately enough, his iconic fragrances are also working their way back into the spotlight. Naomi Watts signed on to be the new face of the Angel franchise last fall, and a limited-edition, seasonal special of the patchouli and vanilla-tinged perfume hits counters this week. Called Angel Sunessence, the eau de toilette boasts bergamot and exotic hibiscus notes so that it’s slightly softer than the classic scent, which has carried a certain “love it or hate it” reputation since appearing in the mid-nineties. (We will forever remember the spicy gourmand as the prominent aroma in the hallways of our high school. It was…overpowering, to say the least.) The new version comes in the same star-shaped flacon, although it’s been given a slight makeover, with a crystalline blue facade embedded with silver sparkles. For fans of the brand, it’s a necessary purchase for the coming months. For everyone else, prepare yourselves for the repercussions of another round of universal overspritzing.
