Taylor Swift Is Wonderstruck; Kate Spade Puckers Up; And More…

It was only a matter of time before Taylor Swift got her own signature scent. Wonderstruck, a freesia, green tea, apple blossom, honeysuckle, vanilla, and peach fragrance licensed by Elizabeth Arden, will be released this October. [WWD]

Swift will be playing catch-up as far as sales records are concerned. Justin Bieber’s Someday is on track to become the bestselling fragrance of 2011. [NYDN]

Attention makeup fans: Lipstick Queen’s Poppy King has collaborated with Kate Spade on four lipstick/lip gloss hybrids to be released this Fall. “This isn’t about a wholehearted jump into the color-cosmetics space,” Kate Spade’s creative director, Deborah Lloyd, said. Too bad; our mind is already reeling with thoughts of a Kate Spade lash-curling mascara. [Elle UK]

In addition to its brand spankin’ new nail-art collab with London-based manicurist Sophy Robson, Sephora has just announced plans to open in-store nail bars with XpresSpa later this month, which means you can now get a fresh paint job while shopping for your favorite foundations and concealers.

Taylor Swift’s Secret Calling; Britney’s Perfume Empire Comes Under Fire; And More…

-------

Taylor Swift has a backup plan should the whole music career thing fail to pan out in the future: hairdresser. The country star with the enviable curls is apparently quite handy around a pair of shears. [Entertainmentwise]

Proctor & Gamble is branching out of its product-producing comfort zone and venturing into the world of magazines. The beauty giant is in the process of launching Beauty Recommended, an online publication that will include editorial stories, interactive video content, advice from makeup and hair experts, and a click-to-buy feature so you can snag select items from Olay, Max Factor, Pantene, and a host of other brands. [Marketing Week]

Britney Spears is in for some legal trouble. The licensing firm that helped launch the pop star’s fragrance empire before she partnered with Elizabeth Arden is claiming Spears acted with a “wanton, willful, and oppressive nature” when handling revenue distribution, cutting them out of millions. Three words: leave Britney alone! [Rolling Stone]

Make Up For Ever is setting up shop in Saint Tropez this summer, with its first ever pop-up store set to open in early May. Yet another reason to break for the Riviera (as if we needed one). [WWD]

And the WWD Beauty Biz Award Goes To…; MAC And Gaga Go For Round 2; And More…

-------

WWD presented its annual Beauty Biz awards this morning, with top honors going to Leonard Lauder (pictured at left as a wee baby with mother, Estée), who received the publication’s first-ever Visionary Award. Other winners included Chanel’s Rouge Coco Hydrating Lipstick, Clinique’s Repairwear Laser Focus Wrinkle & UV Damage Corrector, Thierry Mugler’s Womanity fragrance, and Topshop, which took home a prize for Specialty Retailer of the Year for its much-lauded makeup launch. Also called to the podium was Lancôme-sponsored YouTube phenom Michelle Phan. She was crowned Newcomer of the Year for her online makeup tutorials—one of which dissects a Lady Gaga look and has singlehandedly garnered a whopping 15 million views. [WWD]

Speaking of the biggest pop star of them all, Gaga’s Viva Glam lipstick for MAC, which launched alongside a similar shade designed by Cyndi Lauper this year, did so well the makeup giant has enlisted her for a second solo turn for 2011. [WWD]

Yesterday we shared the news that Taylor Swift will be fronting ads for CoverGirl’s new NatureLuxe Foundation. Today, the matching visual was released into the blogosphere. [People]

Smoky eyes inspired by the runways are apparently the holiday beauty look on everyone’s brain. “Instead of outlining the entire eye with dark shadow, smokiness is only applied to the crease and below the eye,” advises makeup artist Mally Roncal.

A Preview of Portman’s Dior Beauty Ads, Taylor Swift’s Fine Penmanship, And More…

-------


It looks like Natalie Portman’s first gig as Dior’s new global beauty ambassador will be fronting ads for its fragrance, Miss Dior Cherie. A print campaign lensed by Tim Walker and a TV commercial directed by Sofia Coppola will both drop in March. [@womensweardaily]

Speaking of newly named celebrity spokeswomen, Taylor Swift has been assigned to CoverGirl’s new NatureLuxe line of foundation. But liquid eyeliner is the crossover sensation’s real makeup must-have. The pop star reveals that she’s gone as far as using a Sharpie on her lids to get that coveted sultry effect. How…innovative. [Daily Makeover]

Attention Kohl’s shoppers: Vera Wang’s Simply Vera Vera Wang line will be expanding into color cosmetics come 2012. Add that to her Leighton Meester-fronted fragrance due out next year and Wang is really covering all of her beauty bases. [WWD]

Bangs: We pegged them as one of the defining trends of the Aughts; now Entertainment Weekly is taking issue with fringe gone horribly wrong in movies and on TV. Offenders include Elisabeth Moss on Mad Men and The O.C.‘s Mischa Barton. [EW]

In better bangs news, Alexa Chung has cut her hair into a flipped-out bob, brow-grazing fringe still intact. [Elle U.K.]

Carey Mulligan joins Anne Hathaway in her anti-botox crusade. The 25-year-old was allegedly offered the wonder drug to tighten up some burgeoning crow’s feet but refused it. “So I can’t move my face? Isn’t that, well, the antithesis of what I’m trying to do as an actress?” Stay strong, CM! [Just Jared]

Taylor Swift’s Fringe Benefits

-------


It wasn’t easy sitting through the unabashed display of major-label commercialism that was last night’s American Music Awards, but there were a few beauty moments that made it worth it—Rihanna’s eighties-era Whitney Houston curls and Ke$ha’s green-lipped, high-hair tribute to the Lanvin for H&M runway among them. Perhaps most head-turning was a straight-haired Taylor Swift, who cut herself a heavy fringe for the occasion. Unless that’s a clip-on—and we’re pretty sure it’s not—expect to see Swift parting ways with her signature ringlets in upcoming red-carpet appearances. From personal experience, we can tell you that bangs like that do not take well to texture. What do you think of her new, sleek look?
