Mass beauty giant Proctor & Gamble is joining the green movement by introducing sustainable and recyclable plastic sourced from Brazilian sugarcane in its CoverGirl, Pantene, and Max Factor brands. It’s not zero parabens and preservatives, but every little bit counts. [WWD]
Rihanna has gotten over her ill-advised devotion to red hair dye and returned to her brunette roots. Let us be the first to say, “Finally.” [People]
And so, the truth comes out. Gwyneth Paltrow, Country Strong star, mother of two, and poster child for the macrobiotic diet, revealed to Conan O’Brien that she not only owns a deep fryer but uses it all the time. “Fried food is my weakness. I don’t have a sweet tooth,” she says. Us too! [Daily Mail]
Speaking of full disclosure—or lack thereof—Claire Danes’ Latisse spokesperson gig may be in jeopardy as a “source” has come forward claiming that the actress, whose lashes are long and lethal, has severe hyperpigmentation from the prescription growth serum. Bad for business. [NYP]
First Oprah’s makeup artist, Reggie Wells, debuted a new range of products for HissyFit Cosmetics, and now comes news that her hairstylist, Andre Walker, will launch his own range of coiffing products on HSN this week. Looks like everyone is hedging their bets now that the talk show hostess with the mostess is going off the air. [Stylelist]
Designer Reed Krakoff has added a fragrance to his nascent fashion house, and it’s as luxe as they come. At $695 a piece, the four different colored Murano glass bottles are hand-numbered and only 100 of each shade will be produced. [WWD]
In a slightly more accessible bit of fragrance news, a date has been set for the release of Lady Gaga’s fragrance line. Spring 2012 is when the perfume, reportedly called Monster, and its ancillaries will hit shelves accompanied by what is being described as an “unprecedented and groundbreaking” ad campaign and a packaging design that encompasses the singer’s “artistic sensibility.” Expect commercials with next-level dance routines and maybe even a meat-covered bottle. [MTV]
Now back to less accessible: Madonna is apparently being sued by a Canadian company over the forthcoming release of her Material Girl fragrance. Apparently the name Material Girls—with an S—already adorns perfume bottles up north. Why Madge didn’t copyright the name when she released her 1985 song, we’ll never understand. [Business Journal]
As the go-to coiffeur of Julia Roberts, SJP, and Gisele Bündchen, it’s safe to say that Serge Normant knows a thing or two about beautiful hair. Come December, the stylist will bottle said knowledge in an eponymous range of products. [WWD]
Finally, an answer to our burning, why-must-Rihanna-keep-her-hair-that-unflattering-shade-of clown-wig-red question: “I don’t really do edgy clothes. I had to take the edge somewhere else.” Might we suggest crazy footwear as an alternative? [Daily Star]
Despite a previous penchant for monthly color changes, Rihanna seems to be sticking to the clown-wig red locks she switched to this June. But just because the color is here to stay doesn’t mean that she’s limited herself to one style. We’ve seen the bowl cut-with-fade, the long wavy weave, the flower-embellished updo, and even the beehive, which made its debut at the MTV Europe Music Awards this weekend. Last night, in a surprising cameo on the Italian version of the singing competition X Factor—what is Ri-Ri doing on reality television, in Italy, no less?—she broke out the braid, and not just any braid, but the fishtail braid. Thoughts on the style—and her decision to stay with the crimson strands?
Rihanna has spoken: “Redheads have the most fun.” The pop superstar has reported that she might cut her fire-engine red locks soon, but the hue is here to stay for a while. Color us chagrined. [MTV UK]
First Burberry, now L’Oreal. Onetime Christopher Bailey muse Rachel Weisz has just inked a deal to become the French beauty giant’s worldwide face for all brands—except in the U.S., that is. What would Andie MacDowell do with all the free time? [WWD]
Have you ever thought that Jared Leto looks like a girl with drawn-on stubble? No? Well, this cosplay (costume play) video out of Russia will make you reconsider. [Fashionista]
iPhone apps know no bounds. First came FatBooth, and now we give you DragMe, an application that turns one and all into a drag queen with “splendid” wigs, “glorious” makeup, “engaging” eyebrows, and “jaunty” head wraps—all with one simple click of your iPhone camera. Imagine the possibilities! [App Modo]
For those of you clicking through the Hakaan show this morning only to discover a Rihanna look-alike pop out at you in slide 7, let us explain: No, the “Umbrella” singer was not a backstage inspiration, and no, that is not a wig styled to mimic the Barbados beauty’s recent transition to fire-engine red locks. That is, however, model Milica Blagojevic’s real hair, dyed on site by colorist Christophe Robin, who also tinted Shirley Mallmann’s blond tresses a shade of lilac gray (that is not, however, a real nasal bridge piercing that Mallmann and the rest of her catwalking cohorts were spotted with on the runway). Robin had the distinguished task of taking both models back to their original colors post-show, so look out for Blagojevic as a brunette at Cacharel on Saturday.
