The Pro: Global makeup artist for CK One Color Kayleen McAdams
The Product: “CK One takes me back to early high school, when everyone was wearing it—girls and guys. The smell reminds me of being young. I can’t put words to the notes, but it was what I thought a cool, New York loft would smell like; it was artsy. I grew up in a town that was two hours outside of Toronto and, at this time, I was actually working at McDonald’s. It was very glamorous. I worked there for six years. In fact, I ended up being a manager! My brother worked there and so did my sister Rachel [the actress who has starred in films like The Notebook, Midnight in Paris, and The Vow]—she was pretty good with the juice machine. But I still have the memory of the scent of CK One…mixed with french fries.”
As Gwyneth Paltrow’s whirlwind book tour continues, the health and wellness fiend is dishing out beauty tips, too. “I’ve probably tried everything,” she says of beauty procedures, although she won’t be getting Botox again anytime soon. “I looked like Joan Rivers!” she recalls of a negative experience with the popular injections. Paltrow is more likely to book Thermage laser treatments. “It’s quite painful…but I would do it again, because I feel like it took five years off my face.” [Glamour]

Rachel McAdams grabbed headlines a few days ago when she dyed her hair red, and at last night’s premiere of her new flick, To the Wonder, McAdams’ strands made news again. To walk the red carpet alongside costar Ben Affleck, the formerly blonde starlet had her hairstylist, Mark Townsend, create a towering topknot that he accented with a pretty black satin bow tied around her hairline—very Valentino Fall 2013. A pretty pink lip added a flirty touch to the easy style. Thoughts on McAdams’ upbeat updo?

MObama’s bangs may have made headlines when she first snipped them before the inauguration, but the First Lady admits she’s starting to tire of forehead fringe. “They’re getting a little irritating,” she has said. [ET]
After both Jessica Biel and Reese Witherspoon debuted freshly trimmed forehead fringe last week, we started to wonder how far bangs’ latest second coming would go before reaching a saturation point in Hollywood circles. The answer to that question seems to be pretty far. Rachel McAdams and Liv Tyler are the latest starlets to make the cut, with McAdams premiering her new brow-grazing crop at the L.A. premiere of The Vow last night while Tyler turned up sporting a similar look at the Room to Grow fundraising gala in New York. We’ve always been more partial to long, face-framing layers, but it looks like fringe is in fashion again—for the time being at least. Thoughts on the trend’s resurgence?
