Smelling Like “Rihanna Was Here,” Bieber’s Beauty Coup, And More…


As the on-counter date for Rihanna’s first fragrance, Reb’l Fleur, draws near, more details are emerging. The fruity floral—dispensed from a stiletto-inspired flacon—is apparently meant to say, “Rihanna was here”. There will also be a 30-second “hip, edgy” viral video to further promote the perfume. [MTV]

The new (well, continuing) reality star attention grab? A new dye job. Khloe Kardashian, who is breaking away from the fam this year to star in her own show with husband Lamar Odom, is going even more red than the auburn she was spotted with at the People’s Choice Awards this week, while Lauren Conrad, formerly of The Hills, has embraced golden brunette. [Daily Mail]

It seems real celebrities are turning to the hair dye bottle as well. Actress Olivia Thirlby has gone from long and brunette to bobbed and blonde—and has some tips on how flaxen-haired girls can make their faces pop: “I have my trifecta: Benefit Erase Paste, Chanel Teint Innocence and the most incredible mascara ever—Helena Rubenstein Lash Queen.” [T]

The numbers are in and Justin Bieber is officially a beauty phenomenon (as if there were ever any doubt). The teen pop sensation’s nail polish collection with Nicole by OPI completely sold out in the 3,000 Wal-Mart stores where it was stocked over the holidays, and his scented dog tags and wristbands did equally well. And there’s more to come: Biebs will reportedly release a prestige fragrance sometime this year. [WWD]

The 14th Annual “Famed Hottest Looks” survey results have just been distributed, revealing the celebrity body parts most requested from plastic surgeons in 2010. Among the, um, winners are Gisele Bündchen (“Most Desired Female Body”), Taylor Swift (“Most Desired Hair”), and Natalie Portman (“Most Desired Nose”). And with the upset is Scarlett Johansson, beating out Angelina Jolie for “Most Requested Lips.” [Fox News]

Reb’l Fleur Blooms; Vera Wang Is Lovestruck; And More…


At long last, breaking news about Rihanna’s forthcoming fragrance due out this Spring: images of the packaging for Reb’l Fleur, as the tuberose, violet, hibiscus, and coconut water eau is called, have hit the blogosphere! And they are…slightly underwhelming. [Just Jared]

Speaking of long-awaited fragrance news, Leighton Meester has revealed that the name of Vera Wang’s forthcoming perfume is—drum roll please—Lovestruck. [Examiner]

After the tremendous success of its Evan Rachel Wood-fronted women’s flanker, Gucci will be rolling out a men’s version of Guilty this Spring. No word on whether it too will get the Frank Miller-directed cinemercial / MTV Music Awards premiere kind of treatment. [WWD]

The latest addition to Urban Outfitter’s ever-growing beauty arsenal? Clip-on bangs. Made from real human hair and amenable to trimming and heat styling, they’re the perfect accessory for the wannabe hipster on your holiday list. [Blackbook]

The Lure Of Bronzer; Amy Adams Is Curvy And Loving It; And More…


Another item for our Sun: Love It/Hate It file: Cate Blanchett—who is known for her creamy alabaster complexion—admits that “truckie’s arm” is unavoidable no matter how much SPF you put on in the summer, and that every now and again, even she breaks out the bronzer to simulate a golden glow. SK-II bronzer, of course. [Sydney Morning Herald]

“I wasn’t put on this earth to look good in a swimsuit.” —Amy Adams on her body, being A-OK with her post-baby figure, and not succumbing to the weight pressure Hollywood puts on new moms. [Daily Mail]

Rihanna: A Year in Hair is now up and running. Remember the blond streak/brunette bowl cut era? Ah, those were the days…. [StyleList]

Someone who will not be getting into any Riri-style hair dye adventures in the new year is Will Ferrell. The comedian recently quipped that it was his idea to dye his hair platinum blonde for his role in Zoolander, but that he will “never do it again.” So…shall we expect to see a brunette Mugatu in the movie’s much-anticipated sequel? [Digital Spy]

Designer Chris Benz, on the other hand, is totally down. “I thought this might only be holiday hair, but I think I’m gonna have it stick around for a while,” Benz has said of his new, multicolored Manic Panic’d strands. [Paper Mag]

Red Is Dead For Rihanna, Gwyneth Wants Fries With That, And More…


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]

Reed Krakoff Does Fragrance; Madonna Doesn’t; And More…


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]
