Helen Mirren Shares Her Beauty Secrets

“Holding your tummy in is another trick for making you look and feel good. I don’t know why, but I do, by nature, hold my tummy in. [... And] Four-inch platforms give you great height and make your legs look unbelievably long. I used only to be able to get them in stripper shops, but now you can buy them everywhere – although, unfortunately, that means everyone else has discovered the trick too.”

Helen Mirren, who turned heads with her bikini pics two years ago when she was just shy of 63, shares some of her beauty tips with the Daily Mail. [via Daily Mail] Keep reading »

Girl Talk: My Bikini Waxer Suggested I Get Liposuction

I am a hairy person. Think of the hairiest person you know, then think hairier. Think “Harry and the Hendersons” hairy. Anytime I am within a tongue depressor’s distance of an aesthetician, they find something new to wax. (This is how I learned the hard way that upper-lip waxing is not something you should agree to do lightly.) I’m super laid-back in the vanity department, so I am pretty used to waxers offering — nay, begging — to rip hot wax off my eyebrows, my upper lip, my arms, my legs and my lady parts. What I am not used to, however, is the suggestion that I fly to Colombia to get liposuction. Keep reading »

Charlie Le Mindu Sends Naked Models Down The Runway

Wig maker Charlie Le Mindu, whose insane work we’ve featured here previously, decided to spice up the already eccentric London Fashion Week by having his models traipse down the runway wearing next to nothing other than his hair creations. While some of the models at the start of the 24-year-old’s show had on skimpy clothes, eventually they fell off altogether. Le Mindu is perhaps best known for having created some of Lady Gaga‘s hair looks. We suppose it’s only a matter of time before she goes buck naked, as well. After the jump, get an eyeful of the full effect (blurred). [Daily Mail] Keep reading »

Frisky Q&A: Gwen Stefani Talks Harajuku Lovers Fragrances & Being A Working Mom

Gwen Stefani will launch five more Harajuku Lovers fragrances, called Wicked Style, Nov. 1. This time around, G and the Harajuku Girls — Love, Lil Angel, Music, and Baby — are back in Tokyo on Takeshita-Dori, a pedestrian-only street where fashionable people go to chill, and are dressed in fashions that originated in Japan — gothic Lolita, sweet Lolita, visual Kei, Kawaii, and Omotesandō girl. Gwen loves building a story for her Harajuku Girls perfumes as much as she enjoys creating perfume bottles that double as works of art. But what’s it like to create five fragrances at a time when it takes other celebrities years to create just one? A few other bloggers and I had the chance to chat with Gwen backstage at her L.A.M.B. spring 2011 fashion show, where she talked about the new Wicked Style fragrances, being a mom and designer, and her personal beauty choices.
