If you’ve ever wondered how supermodel Christie Brinkley looks almost as good today at 58 as she did in 1983′s Vacation, the answer is simple: She works out all the time. Squats while blow-drying her hair, leg lifts while slicing vegetables. Name the strengthening exercise and Brinkley can multitask it. [NYDN]
In a riveting new interview with the Beckhams, we learn that David and Victoria have separate bathrooms in which his products are hidden and hers are “quite on show”; that she runs four or five miles every day on the treadmill while he prefers exercising outdoors; and that the couple have collectively discovered the “hippie powers of crystals.” Cosmic.

Speaking of riveting interviews, Sarah Jessica Parker reveals that she’s nervous about aging in the new issue of Elle. “It’s like those flowers that wilt in front of you in time-lapse films. But what can I possibly do? Look like a lunatic?” Well, yes, actually, if the trend among many of her Hollywood cohorts is any indication. [Huff Po]
Stop the presses: Kim Kardashian ventured out in L.A. yesterday to get a manicure without makeup on. No fake lashes either, it appears. A headline maker, indeed! [Us Weekly]
As if there were any question, Marilyn Monroe has been named the greatest blonde of all time in a new poll from Clairol Nice ‘N Easy. Grace Kelly, Brigitte Bardot, and Cameron Diaz also made the cut, although seeing as how Marilyn was really a brunette, we’d feel cheated if we were Cam. [Stylist]
We called it earlier this summer; two-toned hair is officially a trend. It’s season-specific, though, so Drew Barrymore, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Rachel Bilson may want to make appointments with their colorists ASAP. [WWD]
And now back to Marilyn. It wasn’t just the screen star’s golden locks that made her a fan favorite. And allegedly, it wasn’t her décolletage either. According to a New Zealand anthropologist, her attractiveness—and female attractiveness in general—is based on a simple hip-to-waist measurement, that being 0.7. A waist measurement that is exactly 70 percent of the hip circumference also happens to define modern-day beauties like Kate Moss, Jessica Alba, and supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio. [Daily Mail]
Luckily, Avon is here for those of us with ratios that aren’t quite up to par. To celebrate its 125th anniversary, the beauty giant is launching Avon Voices, a global online talent search for a female singer with a songwriting competition component that incorporates the theme of empowerment. Fergie—whose Outspoken fragrance just launched under the brand’s guidance—will play judge. Look out, American Idol. [WWD]
We trust Sarah Jessica Parker. Implicitly. On the rare occasion that she has a fashion or beauty mishap, we have no doubt that she will soon redeem herself. So after the Oscars’ weird frizzy-bouffant moment, we were thrilled to see SJP having a very, very good hair day at the launch of Halston Heritage in Toronto. With a mountainous mane of loose, beachy waves to rival Serena van der Woodsen, Parker found hair redemption…even if it did come courtesy of some top-notch extensions. How do you like her more, more, more approach?
We may have had mixed feelings about her hair, but Sarah Jessica Parker still managed to wow us on the red carpet last night by going big with the skin art. How best to accessorize a Chanel Couture dress, you ask? With Peter Philips’ new, limited-edition temporary tattoos from the house’s Spring collection, of course. We noticed this little gem last night when a fellow fashion-minded friend pointed to Parker’s bedazzled wrist and said, “That bracelet isn’t moving.” (Good eye). What do you think of the tats off the runway and on the red carpet?
Speaking of frizzy updos at the Oscars, did anyone else notice an abundance of fly-aways last night? We are specifically referring to the hairstyles preferred by Jennifer Lopez, courtesy of coif master Robert Vetica, and Sarah Jessica Parker, which included voluminous buns in the back and a mass of soft frizz around the hairline. We get that the deliberate technique is meant to soften the look (and the blow that humidity-induced damage can bring to the table), but it came off looking kind of sloppy to us. We preferred the sleeker techniques Enzo Angileri and Harry Josh applied to Charlize Theron and Amanda Seyfried, respectively. You?
