Sex And The City Beauty: Miranda

cynthia nixon l Sex And The City Beauty: Miranda
Determined to hire a redhead for Miranda, Sex And The City creator Darren Star almost passed over Cynthia Nixon. “For me, it was important that the hair color, body types and everything was different,” he remembers. “When Cynthia Nixon came in to read for the first time, she was blond. I saw Miranda as a redhead. Thankfully, I took that leap of faith that she would look good as a redhead.”

miranda2 Sex And The City Beauty: MirandaIn the movie version of SATC, Miranda is undeniably more polished and modish than we last saw her. Thanks to a sassy and versatile hairstyle in an enviable scarlet shade, she finally looks the part of urban sophisticate.

The new and improved Miranda also sports a smoky eye and lots a lashes, to showcase her baby blues. Dusty rose blush and a soft pink lip round out the look.

At long last, our fave wry redhead is exercising her rights (Miranda rights, get it?) to step out of the shadows and be fabulous!

Is Allure Magazine Losing Its Allure?

hilary+and+jessica+allure+covers Is Allure Magazine Losing Its Allure?
As I was straightening up my apartment today (fine way to spend a holiday – I know), I was rummaging through my collection of magazines…trying to decide which ones were past their prime and needed to go in the trash. That’s when I noticed the similarities between the May and June 2008 covers of Allure Magazine.

kate+beckinsale+allure+cover Is Allure Magazine Losing Its Allure?In reality, Hilary Duff and Jessica Alba look nothing alike. But thanks to their mirror poses, side-swept bangs, and rose-tinted lips, the two starlets are doppelgangers. And if you look back to March’s issue, you’ll notice that Kate Beckinsale’s cover shot is almost identical.

Allure is one of my favorite mags. And I recognize that options are somewhat limited when you’re taking headshots. But c’mon. What I love most about beauty is the limitless possibilities…it’s transformative power. If you peruse the pages of Allure, you’ll see some stunning hair and makeup – especially in the editorials. But then, the lackluster covers looks stand in complete opposition.

It’s true you can’t judge a book by it’s cover. But in the world of magazines, the cover can have a huge impact on newsstand sales. And, in my opinion, magazine editors really need to wake up, smell the Chanel No. 5, and start giving us diverse, more alluring covers.

kim+kardashian2 Kim Kardashian Answers Fans Beauty Questions
Kristina asks:
Hey Kim…love you and your sisters…LOVE the show! Quick question: In the season premiere of Season 2 Khloe was wearing an awesome shade of pink nail polish when she “cornered Scott.” Can you tell me the shade or at least the brand by chance? Thanks.

Kim answers:
It’s by the company Essie and shade is called Limo-Scene.

Lily asks:
Hi Kim! I love you. As J.Lo is your inspiration, you are mine! I really would like to know what is the perfume you like the most! And for night too!

Kim answers:
I usually stick to the same scent — my all time every day scent is Michael by Michael Kors.

Yiana asks:
Kim, I am your biggest fan. What is your diet/workout regime and what kind of products do you use for your hair?

Kim answers:
I try to eat as healthy as possible, but make sure I work out all the time. I have a trainer Kathy Kaehler who I work out with all the time. We actually just made a work out video which is simple and easy to follow along with — especially if you are busy and don’t have any exercise equipment. As for my hair, I like to switch up products all the time to keep it fresh and vibrant. I use anything from Herbal Essences to Finesse to salon products.

Men’s Fragrance News

josh hartnett 300x400 Mens Fragrance NewsWhen I first heard that Josh Hartnett was teaming up with Armani for their newest men’s fragrance, I thought, “It’s a match made in heaven…if the cologne’s name is Unibrow.”

Alas, the name doesn’t have anything to do with Josh’s fuzzy lower-forehead. He will be the face of Emporio Armani Diamonds for Men, which will be unveiled next month during Spring/Summer fashion week in Milan.

Giorgio Armani said of Hartnett: “Both on and off screen he has a charm and charisma that is magnetic. His individuality, allure and nonchalant way of being are all qualities which inspired me in the creation of this new fragrance.” Apparently, Mr. Armani hasn’t seen Pearl Harbor, Hollywood Homicide, The Black Dahlia, Halloween H20…

deseo for men Mens Fragrance NewsIn other men’s fragrance news, Jennifer Lopez will release her first masculine fragrance, Deseo for Men, this September.

“I wanted to capture the intimate and personal nature of a man who is sexy, yet strong,” says J.Lo. “Deseo means desire. I wanted to take this meaning and put it behind the idea of one desiring another. The smell is warming and creates a provocative and sensual texture.”

The fragrance has “top notes of lemon, yuzu, red berries and cedar leaf; a heart of tobacco leaves, guaicwood and orris, and a dry down of sandalwood, cedarwood, patchouli, amber and vanilla.”

The Deseo for Men collection will include Eau de Toilette (1.7 oz for $45 and 3.4 oz for $55), a 3.4 oz aftershave balm ($40), and a 2.4 oz deodorant ($16).

Rihanna, my favorite Bajan bombshell, is Elle’s June cover girl.

rihanna1 Rihanna’s On The Cover Of Elle (Ella Ella Eh Eh Eh)Her interview with the mag runs the gamut. Lighthearted topics include the decision to cut her hair and singing in front of Jay Z for the first time. The interview turns more serious, when she opens up about her once-strained relationship with an alcoholic father.

Plus, Rihanna hints about whether Chris Brown is the one standing under her umbrella.

And check out exclusive behind-the-scenes video from the cover shoot.

The June 2008 issue is on newsstands now.

Is Jada Pinkett Smith Hiding A Black Eye?

jada Is Jada Pinkett Smith Hiding A Black Eye?
Okay…so I’ve been hearing some crazy things about Miss Jada lately. Word on the streetz is that she’s using that crazy ratnest mullet hairdo to hide a black eye. What ever happened to good ole concealer? Did anyone see the Oprah/Tom Cruise interview? It seems that this is where the buzz started.

You know I love the celeb fodder. So if you have any info (or just wanna spread more rumors), please leave them in the comments section below. Be a gossip, girl…I won’t judge.
