Artist Noel Cruz took an ordinary doll, removed the factory paint and repainted the figurine using acrylics after he was inspired by the ‘enigmatic beauty’ of Angelina Jolie. What resulted is, perhaps, one of the most lifelike and creepy dolls I’ve ever seen.
The doll is missing Angie’s signature tattoos. But Cruz, who specializes in painting dolls to resemble celebrities, says that they can be added for an extra cost of between £10 and £20, depending on the complexity of the design. And the doll can don different wigs for a variety of looks.
So how much will one of these doppelganger dolls run you? A private bidder recently paid £2,000 for his/her own mini Angelina.
I’d bet cash money that the anonymous buyer is none other Jennifer Aniston, and that she’s sticking pins in that thing like it’s her J-O-B.
Victoria’s Secret head makeup artist, Linda Hay gave Heidi Klum a 1930’s inspired look for the 2008 Emmy Awards.
Linda was inspired by Heidi’s gunmetal grey Armani Prive gown. To off set the color of the gunmetal and staying on trend with the season, Linda opted for a palette of green, gunmetal and silver. Keeping it soft, but bright, Linda used items from Heidi Klum’s Very Sexy Makeup Fall Collection:
Eyes: Mosaic Eye Shadow in Butterfly
Cheeks: Mosaic Blush in Jewel
Lips: Lipstick in Malibu and Lip gloss in Cupcake
In the immortal words of Project Runway Season 2 contestant Daniel Vosovic, it was a “motherf-ing walkoff” at the Fashion for Relief Annual Fashion Show last Wednesday.
Naomi and Chanel Iman sashayed and shante’d down the catwalk at the same time, in the same dress (it’s an Alaia). In case you hadn’t heard…he’s, like, a totally important designer.
Hairstylist Daniel Howell used Frederic Fekkai products on Emmy nominee, America Fererra for the 2008 Emmys.
The look: A modern day Veronica Lake with heightened definition and a defined wave pattern. Accented with a strong side part and pulled back to one side.
How to get the look: Start by applying Défense Pre-Style Thermal UV Protectant to wet hair. Brush from roots to ends with the Classic Brush. Spray Bouffant Lifting & Texturizing Spray Gel through out and dry hair. Using a 3/4 inch curling iron start at the nape of the neck and wrap the hair from middle to root. Make sure all the hair is going in the same direction making it a repetitious pattern. Then use the next size curling iron on the ends of the hair. Go through the entire head from right side to left side. Clip the hair into desired waves close to the scalp. Remove clips and brush out curls for a soft finish. Set with Sheer Hold Hairspray.

Carrie Underwood is Allure‘s cover girl for their September 2008 issue.
Makeup artist Brigitte Reiss-Andersen was inspired by glamorous Bond girl Ursula Andress. “The idea with Carrie’s makeup was to showcase her eyes and give them that ‘pop,’” says Reiss-Andersen.
First, she sponged on a light wash of foundation and dabbed the apples of Underwood’s cheeks with a peach cream blush. Then she rimmed Underwood’s eyes in charcoal liner and blended cranberry and nude eye shadow from the lash line to the crease. She added “tons of fake lashes” as well as mascara. Finally, Reiss-Andersen applied a sheer and pearly lip gloss so it “didn’t compete with her eyes.”
To re-create the look, try:
* Chanel Soft Touch Eyeshadows in Cinnamon and Beige
* Chanel Powder Blush in Horizon
* Chanel Aqualumiere Gloss in Bonbon
Reiss-Andersen offered to tone down Underwood’s makeup before she headed out the door, but the singer loved it so much that she kept it. She signed a few autographs for the crew before heading off to shop for cosmetics at a local mall with her mom and sister – fake eyelashes and all!
