Bottega Veneta Taps Nine d’Urso; Rihanna Goes Big With Beauty In New “S&M” Video; And More…

Like mother, like daughter. Lagerfeld muse Inès de la Fressange’s daughter, Nine d’Urso, will be the new face of Bottega Veneta’s premiere fragrance due out this fall. [WWD]

Rihanna’s new video for her single “S&M” hit the Web hard today. Aside from a cameo by one of Prada’s striped stoles for Spring, we spotted five different hair looks, four different nail designs—including cherry red and zebra print—and three different lip colors, our favorite being bubblegum pink. And that was just on the first viewing! [Fader]

Emily Blunt has cashed in her dark chestnut locks in favor of a new light brown shade with blond highlights. Hey, it’s never too early to prep for the summer sun. [E!]

Oprah will announce on her show this afternoon that she and her staff are about to embark on a vegan diet challenge for one week! If you haven’t already set your Tivo, you know what to do. [Huff Po]

The Wonderful World Of Wigs And Weaves

-------


In today’s increasingly high stakes music game, a pretty voice and maybe some songwriting skills (and that’s a big maybe) aren’t enough to skyrocket you to success. You need an image—and in an era in which Lady Gaga can cover herself in slabs of meat and call it fashion, the more shocking that image is, the better. Speaking of appearances, there’s a beauty crazy-off happening in the R&B world at the moment, starring two of its leading ladies. The lovely ladies are, of course, Rihanna and Nicki Minaj. After the former spent a few years with varying forms of peroxide-highlighted bowl cuts, fades, and mohawks, she embraced cherry red strands last year and hasn’t looked back. Last night in L.A., she debuted a new incarnation of her Bozo stylings with a full head of long, tight, frizzed-out curls and what looks like three coats of Chanel Riva on her nails for color contrast. Minaj, meanwhile, went with a pink beehive-with-bangs look when she hit London yesterday with P. Diddy’s Dirty Money crew. Both styles are attention-getting, but whose screams chart-topper more? Also, can someone tell us what Nicki Minaj’s real hair looks like?

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]
