For their new spring collection, Nars had supermodel Amber Valletta channel Catherine Deneuve in the iconic “La Chamade.” “It’s very sophisticated and bourgeois in a Parisian ‘16th Arrondissement’ way,” said Francois himself. “She [Deneuve] is the perfect reference for this collection, and apropos for spring, a time to embrace color and get noticed.” While we love the bouffant hair and even the fun yellow eyeshadow, we’re especially drawn to the new lipstick, called Cruising. Past attempts at a Bardot-like French nude pout have drawn us down a questionable path (concealer on the lips anyone?), but this hue works because it has a slight amount of sheer pink to make it more wearable. So you know, c’est magnifique or whatever. [Nars] Keep reading »
My favorite hobbit, Elijah Wood, just hosted his first eating contest, called Lord of the Wings. The competition took place at Epstein’s Bar in New York and the winner, “Big Dan” Graff, awesomely said, “It was a fun night. I ate 14 wings in three minutes. Elijah was a good sport and a really sweet little guy. I’ll probably regret saying this, but he’s got the biggest blue eyes I’ve ever seen on a man.” Awww, sounds like there was some bromance brewing at the wing competition. [NY Post]
And because I’ve got a huge ol’ crush on Kobayashi, I’m gonna introduce you to some of the most random eating competitions ever. Keep reading »
Behold, Vanessa Paradis (aka Johnny Depp‘s main squeeze) in the first photo from her new Chanel ad campaign for the brand’s Rouge Coco lipstick. Could she (and this photo, above) be anymore beautiful? So pretty! The campaign photos were taken by Jean Baptiste Mondino and stay tuned for a short film starring Vanessa as well. Rouge Coco goes on sale in March and it looks set to be Chanel’s top product in 2010. (The lipstick is based on a design dating from 1952—a team of “investigators” has tried to emulate the lipstick that Coco Chanel would have liked.) Check out a few behind-the-scenes outtakes, after the jump!

Blake Lively did her best greaser impression on February’s cover of Esquire, though I remember the guys in “Grease” wearing pants.
In unrelated news: the arch of Blake’s left eyebrow looks super-obviously Photoshopped, right? [Esquire.com]
UPDATE: Eek, how embarrassing! Commenters have correctly pointed out that the Sharks and the Jets are from “West Side Story,” not “Grease.” And I’ve seen both of those movies a million times. For shame! Keep reading »
Hold on to your seats (er, couches?) people, because this is a big television week. You’ll probably want to cancel your plans tonight so that you can watch the 100th episode of “How I Met Your Mother,” the episode of “The Bachelor” where Rozlyn gets booted for scamming on a producer, and the premiere of “Let’s Talk About Pep.” Oh, plus this week also brings the season premieres of “Southland” and “Project Runway.” After the jump, all the details.
