Taylor Swift Makes It A Three-peat; Audrey Tautou Says “Non” To Hollywood’s Impossible Beauty Standards; And More…

-------

And so Taylor Swift’s beauty empire grows. The country-crossover sensation has just added a third fragrance to her arsenal that’s simply called Taylor. [People]

Amélie star Audrey Tautou might be an excellent actress—and a hair icon for the ages—but don’t expect to see her in Hollywood anytime soon; the Cannes ambassador is not interested in “every single millimeter” of her body being scrutinized. “I am very French. And in Hollywood, the pressure is different. Of course, the idea of being ‘bankable’ in France exists, but it’s not as unforgiving. Some people are happy with that, but me, non.” [Independent]

Looking for good beauty ephemera? Artfact, the world’s largest online live auction marketplace, has you covered. The site has listed a black acrylic nail featuring an intricate gold bead pattern that was personally worn by Lady Gaga during her Born This Way Ball tour in Dublin. The starting price: a wee $1,500. [Artfact]

Going off the presupposition that men only like scents that are, well, manly, Yankee Candle has just debuted a line of Man Candles in fragrances like MMM, Bacon; the buttered-popcorn-tinged Movie Night; and the leather-laced First Down. That said, our father will still be getting something from Frédéric Malle come June 16. [Daily Mail]

Jessica Simpson’s Post-Baby Diet Plans Put On Hold; How To Eat Like An Angel; And More…

-------

Jessica Simpson confirmed via Twitter yesterday that she is in fact pregnant with her second child a cool seven months after giving birth to her first. So, what does that mean for the multi-million dollar deal she signed with Weight Watchers, which was hoping to benefit on what would have been a very public post-baby slim down? There will be “no changes,” says the dieting brand, which will use footage of Simpson’s weight loss after giving birth to baby Maxwell in May in a new advertising campaign. Simpson “will not be following the program” during her second pregnancy. [USA Today]

In other dieting news, Victoria’s Secret Angel and former Leonardo DiCaprio flame Erin Heatherton admits that while working out is essential to maintaining her Angel-caliber body, so is eating. “It’s important to be fit, but you shouldn’t get too skinny. You need to have curves,” says the blond bombshell, who works out twice a day but also makes sure to keep her calorie intake high, so there’s something to “build on. If you’re not eating enough, all the work-outs are doing, it’s not going to show.” [Daily Mail]

Beware of bootleg Botox. According to a letter the FDA sent to 350 medical practices last month that was just made public, counterfeit and potentially dangerous forms of the wrinkle-reducing toxin have been purchased from Canadian pharmaceutical companies and are currently circulating stateside. [Jezebel]

Turkey’s beauty tourism business is booming, but it’s not the country’s signature hammams that are bringing in the big bucks. Nope, that honor goes to an uptick in visitors to the country seeking beard and mustache implants! [Guardian]

Celebrity fragrances were big sellers at the retail counter this holiday season, with Lady Gaga’s Fame topping out as the number one perfume in the U.K., while sets from Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber were big sellers at home. [Starpulse and Glamour]

Taylor Thinks Pink; Dyeing For Gold; And More…

-------

Since adopting a thick, tawny fringe for her February Vogue cover, Taylor Swift has been much more experimental with her hair, which has been readily layered, swept up, and blown-out since. Her latest move? A choppy, dip-dyed shag, which was spotted on set of the video for her new hit “I knew You Were Trouble.” [Just Jared]

All that glitters is gold, as they say—including your hair, if a new dying technique is to be believed. Researchers at Paris’ University of Pierre and Marie Curie are reporting the discovery of a new chemical process that will give hair the hue of gilded precious metal, which will appear a glimmering shade of red beneath UV lights. [Daily Mail]

Drew Barrymore, Fergie, and People magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive, Channing Tatum, all swear by nutritionist Kimberly Snyder when it comes to staying in peak physical condition, and now Snyder has opened her very own juice bar in L.A. to help the rest of the West Coast keep their calorie intake in check. [E!]

Speaking of L.A. beauty and health hot spots, West Hollywood’s makeup salon Blushington is expanding its smoky-eye-on-the-spot services to Dallas. Next stop, New York? [D Magazine]

A Red-Carpet Red Lip-Off

-------

New York was definitely not feeling the lipstick love at the Spring shows last month. But once the fashion circuit moved to Europe, painted pouts ruled the runways once more—and continue to dominate the red carpet. A host of big-billing events last night saw a gaggle of A-listers pull out their best bullets for a few seconds in front of the flashbulbs, and with a number of nods to classic Hollywood glamour, scarlet and crimson colors ruled, yielding three stellar mouth moments: In New York, Solange Knowles opted for a bright, matte cerise at the Angel Ball, while Taylor Swift chose a glossy cherry to release her new CD, which is, uncoincidentally, called Red. But Amanda Seyfried’s makeup at the 16th Annual Hollywood Film Awards gala in L.A. just might be our favorite, as she worked the soft-focus, blurred-around-the-edges, rose petal red that Lucia Pieroni made famous backstage at Rochas. But maybe that’s just us. Which do you prefer?

A Lancôme Star Is Born; MAC’s Comic Relief; And More…

-------

Lancôme’s latest must-have mascara launches in September but starting today, Sephora is offering a 72-hour preview of its Hypnôse Star, inspired by brand face Daria Werbowy…and Betty Boop. [Sephora]

MAC has become synonymous with behemoth collaborations. From Hello, Kitty and Wonder Woman to partnerships with Beth Ditto, Daphne Guinnes, and Ruffian, there’s nothing the makeup brand can’t turn into covetable, limited-edition cosmetics. Its latest trick? Archie. The comic strip’s Betty and Veronica characters will get their own color ranges early next year. [WWD]

Never mind that successful Olympics bid. Americans have a whole new reason to be envious of London: At the end of this month, its Covent Garden neighborhood will be home to a two-floor Chanel makeup and fragrance pop-up shop. Jeal-lous. [Evening Standard]

When Taylor Swift first blew out her signature ringlets, the blogosphere was all a-gasp. But seeing the country phenom with straight hair is now something of a regular occurrence. “I decide based on what I’m doing on any given day,” Swift says of whether or not to go curly. “Lately, I’ve been doing my hair in a way that’s sort of a combination of the two, smooth on top with a loose curl at the bottom,” she explains, pointing out that her go-to hairstyle at the moment is “a ponytail with some kind of headband or scarf.” [Refinery 29]

Spotted: Natalie Portman at the Jardins du Palais Royal in Paris, where the Oscar-winning actress was reportedly shooting a new ad campaign for Miss Dior Cherie, which included a gigantic headdress made from real roses. Color us excited to see that one. [Catwalk Queen]
