Last week, her new album Speak Now broke records. Today, it was announced that Taylor Swift has signed her second beauty deal (after CoverGirl), for a signature scent to be produced by Elizabeth Arden. When it launches next year, Eau de Taylor will join Arden’s other successful celebrity franchises—think Britney Spears, Usher, and Mariah Carey. All the country crossover star needs now is a hair endorsement, and she’ll have the beauty trifecta in full effect, and with curls like that, we’re wondering what the holdup is? What do you think her scent will be called? [WWD]
It’s been a busy month here on the blog. With a whole new crop of A-listers signing beauty contracts, pop stars dyeing and straightening their hair, and one very prominent face painter dabbling in fashion to write about, we barely had time to do our own makeup. In case you missed them, we’ve compiled a top ten list of June’s most important posts. Read up.
Taylor Swift has made a name for herself as much for her tight, flaxen ringlets as her angelic country twang, but the songbird couldn’t resist the lure of the blow-dryer at the CMT Music Awards in Nashville last night. As one-time haters of our own wavy, thick locks, we understand her urge to go straight. (By the way, she’s a fan of MorrocanOil, the argan oil-based elixir that’s such a dynamite smoothing agent.) Oh, but her curls! They’re so signature. What do you think: a nice change of pace, or a red-carpet beauty gaffe?
Taylor Swift has been named the latest face of CoverGirl, joining a celebrity roster that includes Queen Latifah, Ellen DeGeneres, Rihanna, and Drew Barrymore. It was only a matter of time before someone gave that girl a beauty contract. [WWD]
Jennifer Aniston still looks as good as she did in her Friends days, and although the 41-year-old actress is reportedly “open” to Botox, you won’t see her getting collagen lip injections anytime soon. Instead, Aniston apparently puts sugar granules and a little bit of water on a toothbrush and scrubs her pout for plumpness. If only her sculpted arms were as easily attainable. [OK!]
With knee and hip replacement surgeries over the past few years (not to mention a few nips and tucks here and there), Jane “Feel the Burn” Fonda defied her 72 years this weekend to host the first annual World Fitness Day in Atlanta, Georgia. We’re sorry to report her signature leotard and headband were not in attendance, but she did rock an equally tight, flare-legged onesie. [Daily Mail]
After visiting seven countries to explore the international culture of beauty, the finale of Jessica Simpson’s The Price of Beauty will air tonight at 10 p.m. on VH1. Filmed in L.A., this episode features Panya, the Thai woman who disfigured her face using skin-bleaching cream, returning for a Hollywood-style makeover. It’s guaranteed to be a tearjerker; set your DVR. [Allure]
Amy Adams, Angelina Jolie, and Jennifer Aniston still don’t have beauty contracts. Neither do Rachel Bilson, Sandra Bullock, or January Jones. So who’s next? Our money is on Taylor Swift. If you see a fragrance from the country crossover sensation in the coming year, we told you so. [WWD]
Good news: The elusive male contraceptive pill is currently undergoing clinical trials. Bad news: a new study shows that most women are skeptical as to whether their partners would remember to take it. [Science Daily]
If you’ve been wondering why Hayden Panettiere dyed her hair red, it’s because the Heroes star is apparently tired of being thought of as cute—a difficult mold to break out of when you are 5″ 2″ and play a cheerleader on TV. [Avon]
In other questionable hair color choices, yesterday’s news that Kate Moss had jumped on the gray-hair-is-now-cool-for-all-ages bandwagon is, well, yesterday’s news. The model is back to her golden blond just 24 hours later. Perhaps we should consider her two-tone moment a fleeting homage to her pal Daphne Guinness. [Daily Mail]
Aging is not necessarily gradual, a new study shows, and can actually take a nose-dive into wrinkles territory once you reach a “tipping point,” now thought to be age 35. Enjoy 34 while it lasts. [Daily Mail]
