Raquel Welch Wigs Out, National Cleavage Day, Burger Beauty, And More

-------

There are few women we’d buy a wig from, but perennial bombshell Raquel Welch might just be the one. The curvy actress has been peddling faux manes since 1998, and is expected to pull in $50 million in 2012. Word is Welch will introduce a new high-end line called 24/7 Glamour in the Fall. [WWD]

What do Beyoncé, Marilyn Monroe, and Lara Stone all have in common? Apparently exquisite décolletage. A recent Wonderbra poll conducted in honor of National Cleavage Day ranked the Top Ten women sporting perfect cleavage. [Huff Po]

In its first collaboration with beauty retailer Pantone Universe, Sephora is paying tribute to 2012′s Color of the Year, Tangerine, with a limited-edition collection of vibrant red-orange cosmetics in stores now. Run, don’t walk. [Fashion Etc.]

This might be the most imaginative fast food ad yet. Burger King Netherlands put out this tasty, calorie-free eye makeup look that’s got us reconsidering those Whopper value meals. [Buzzfeed]

Eva And Naomi For Pantene; Lady Gaga Wages A Lipstick War; And More…

How does Raquel “beyond the cleavage” Welch keep her body in tiptop shape at 70? Power walking, of course (low-impact cardio is the way to go). [Daily Mail]

What’s good for the gander is apparently good for the goose. Latisse, the eyelash enhancing wonder drug, has been showing positive results as a solution for receding hairlines. [NYT]

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]

Raquel Welch: Beyond The Cleavage; The Vitamin D Debate; And More…

-------


Raquel Welch has a new book out about her life that details what it’s like to be an aging sex symbol. In Raquel: Beyond the Cleavage (genius title), the 69-year-old Welch discusses her diet and fitness regimen, which includes a ton of yoga; abstaining from salt, sugar, and caffeine; and never eating after 6 p.m. She also says that plastic surgery is a last resort. Botox, however, is another story. [Reuters]

Beauty bloggers the world over have been all abuzz about today’s news that Leighton Meester has a new gig as global ambassador for Herbal Essences. Meester, who is actually a natural blonde, will appear in print ads, etc., later this year. Blake Lively is no doubt in talks with a rival haircare brand as we speak. [WWD]

Beauty school dropouts looking to get back into the biz might be interested to know that Dermalogica has just opened a brand-new undergraduate academy in Manhattan. New York’s beauty fiends might be more interested to know that the LEED-certified trade school has a 10-bed treatment room where student-administered facials are a wee $50. [WWD]

Talk of mass vitamin D deficiencies from years of SPF use are creating a riff within the medical community—but it hasn’t stopped sunscreen makers from capitalizing on the hype. A new crop of vitamin D-enriched SPF lotions and sprays are starting to hit shelves, although whether or not the nutrient can penetrate deep down into the skin when applied topically is up for serious debate. We’ll stick to diet supplements and a little bit of (controlled) sun exposure until this one gets worked out. [CBS]
