Mary J. Blige’s new fragrance with Carol’s Daughter, My Life, will finally make its debut this summer, and according to MJB, she created the perfume for herself and her fans as “a special tribute to us as women.” As such, it is intended to represent “every female’s everyday life,” which is perhaps why she is launching it on HSN, rather than in a high-end department store. Nothing says “everyday life” like ordering luxury goods from the privacy of your own home. [WWD]
Speaking of a tribute to women, Thierry Mugler will also honor the fairer sex this fall with Womanity, his latest olfactory effort that blends sweet and savory accords together in a pink gothic-design bottle. And when we say sweet and savory, we’re not kidding. Fig and caviar essences come together to frame this fragrance. Intriguing… [WWD]
Penélope Cruz will be the new face of Lancôme Trésor. With Julia Roberts already hawking its mascaras, the French beauty brand may win the award for “Best Celeb Spokesperson Roster” this year. [StyleList]
And in other A-listers-in-the-beauty-game news, Scarlett Johansson will continue her face time for Dolce & Gabbana’s The Makeup by shooting a campaign for its summer collection, for which she has reunited with old friends Pat McGrath and Oribe. The images are as iconic, old-Hollywood-glamour as it gets, as to be expected; color collections may be seasonal, but big blonde hair, boobs, and pouty lips are forever. [Grazia]
There are many things to admire about Penélope Cruz. There’s her face-making nose, those fantastic eyebrows, that slammin’ body—and of course, her unreal Oscar award-winning acting ability. She outshined every other A-lister in Nine, in our humble opinion. But back to beauty. We’ve also become big fans of the eighties-era side flip she’s been sporting of late; it reminds us of some of our favorite movies from the decade—like Can’t Buy Me Love, starring a pre-McDreamy Patrick Dempsey. The look involves some mousse at the roots (try Redken’s new Aerate bodifying cream), a good blow-out, and some adventurous finger combing. It makes for some real girl-next-door glamour, don’t you think?
According to Charlotte Tilbury, drag queens have given lip liner a bad name. But the nearly obsolete colored pencil is important, nay essential, to proper lip color application, or so said the makeup artist at Matthew Williamson yesterday, where an early-nineties woman and Helmut Newton photographs played muse. “We all have slightly uneven faces,” the flame-haired face-painter explained as she drew a brick red outline onto models’ lips with MAC’s Stripdown Lip Pencil, filling them in a with a similar shade of Lipstick called Half ‘n Half. Liner is key to creating evenness and definition—especially if you’re working with a strong lip color. “Even Penélope Cruz and Kate Moss need to use it,” Tilbury added, for any of you out there who still doubt its “legit” factor.
A big smile and the Best Supporting Actress statuette for Vicky Cristina Barcelona weren’t the only things Penélope Cruz was showing off at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts Awards on Sunday night. A new shorter, straighter forehead fringe was also among her accessories. As loyal devotees of her long raven locks—which typically include a signature set of full, wild bangs that part down the middle of their own accord—we’re not fans of the new look. But we also shunned the rockabilly movement when it invaded our lives in high school, so perhaps our dislike is not all that surprising. You?
As awards season officially gets under way, with the People’s Choice Awards and the Critics’ Choice Awards fueling celeb-news sites this week and the Golden Globes set to dominate the blogosphere on Sunday night, we’ve already noticed a hair trend among some of Hollywood’s leading ladies: Very sleek chignons and ponytails are staking a claim for the updo of choice this year, with Penélope, Olivia, Angelina, and Kate leading the charge. In other news, has anyone ever noticed the resemblance between Olivia Wilde and Angelina Jolie? It’s kind of uncanny…
