The Skincare Industry Catches Bieber Fever, Spray On the Sex Pistols, And More…


Move over, Jessica and Katy. Justin Bieber has just been crowned the new face of Proactiv. [Us Weekly]

Christina Hendricks’ Joan Harris has been added to Mattel’s Mad Men Barbie collection—red updo, body-hugging purple dress, and all. The sexy secretary’s signature assets are all there, except for her curves, which have been mysteriously trimmed down for the plastic version. Will a plus-sized Barbie ever be a reality? [Daily Mail]

Cucumbers are in season, which means crunchy salads, chilled soups, and even cooked curried varieties are all over restaurant menus. High levels of vitamin C, caffeic acid, and silica make the cool vegetable a good topical bet for your natural skincare needs as well. [NYT]

Never mind the bollocks, there’s a new fragrance inspired by the Sex Pistols. The eau is meant to bottle the spirit of punk rebellion and includes “defiant” black pepper and “raunchy” patchouli notes, as well as a “restless” bite of lemon. [Contact Music]

Michelle Williams Goes Ginger; Genetic Beauty Tests Have Arrived; And More…


Remember Michelle Williams’ adorable, platinum cropped cut from Cannes a couple of months back? Well, it’s gone—replaced by a page boy in a shade of strawberry blond. We miss the pixie. [Pop Sugar]

Bad news for Paris-based fans of Origins. The skincare company is pulling out of France at the end of the month, even giving up its prime counter space at Le Bon Marché. Thankfully, London’s Origins-stocked beauty counters are but a Eurostar ride away. [WWD]

If you’ve ever wished for a way to find out if you are predisposed to cellulite, hair loss, obesity, psoriasis, or even melanoma, this one’s for you. New genetic beauty tests are hitting the market to help fend off pesky health and wellness issues before they start. [StyleList]

Unfortunately, those newfangled swab tests don’t trump environmental factors when it comes to the condition of your skin—and neither can lucrative spokesperson deals, apparently. Despite being the face of Proactiv, Katy Perry can’t seem to shake those occasional breakouts (stars, they’re just like us). [NYDN]

Madonna, Sans Retouching?; The Baby Food Diet; And More…


In Madonna’s racy cover shoot for Interview magazine’s June issue, fishnet stocking marks are visible on her torso, leading some people to suggest that Madge is the latest celeb to go PhotoShop-free in an editorial cameo. Close-ups of her insanely perfect face and biceps suggest otherwise, though. [Daily Mail]

It’s been a busy week for celebrity diet news. From master cleanse abuse to portion control techniques, we’ve now arrived at the baby-food meal plan. Jennifer Aniston is reportedly the latest A-lister to try trainer-to-the-stars Tracy Anderson’s new pureed food program, which involves 14 servings of baby food a day followed by a healthy “adult” dinner. Solid food is overrated anyway. [Huff Po]

In the new issue of Lucky Magazine, Katy Perry admits that pre-rock superstardom, she was too poor to buy makeup and—gasp—also suffered from acne. Thank goodness for that Proactiv spokesperson deal, huh? [MTV U.K.]

Those of you lamenting the fact that Lady Gaga was a Met gala red carpet no-show will be happy to know that pics of the singer from inside the event have surfaced, featuring Gaga in a selection of Prada suits and long, flowing gray hair. The dye job is a welcome change, as far as we’re concerned; we were starting to tire of those egg yolk highlights. [The Cut]
