Brad Pitt named the face of Chanel No. 5!

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are making tons of money as the faces of fashion and beauty campaigns. It was reported last year that Louis Vuitton paid Angelina Jolie millions to be the face of their “Core Values” campaign. Among other contracts, she is one busy woman! Now we learn that her fiance, Brad Pitt, is also getting into the beauty biz.

E! News reports that Brad has been named the face of Chanel No. 5, which is a woman’s perfume!

Yes, it’s a scent for a woman, but if ever there was a man pretty enough to render that particular point moot, it’s Brad Pitt.

Proving yet again that his musky appeal knows no bounds, E! News has exclusively learned that Angelina Jolie’s better half has signed on as the new face of Chanel’s signature No. 5 scent.

Reps for neither Pitt nor the perfume house have commented on the new partnership, but a source tells E! News that the actor will be shooting his firstperfume ad in London sometime this week (the superstar family has set up their most recent homestead in the UK).

And for his endorsement troubles, Pitt will be bringing home some serious bacon for the Jolie-Pitt clan, with his paycheck for the spot somewhere in the seven-figures. The Chanel No. 5 ad will be released overseas sometime later this year. Makes scents to us.

All I have to say is – let’s see the ads!


Kim Kardashian tweets a new picture saying “No fake lashes today!”

But are we really buying it? I bet she has no fake lashes on the bottom, but how about the top? I don’t know if I’m believing those top lashes are 100% real.

She claims she has great lashes because she’s Armenian. “No fake lashes today! #LoveBeingArmenian”

What do you think? Is she telling the truth?

Zooey Deschanel signs on as the new face of Pantene!

Zooey Deschanel has just been named the new face of Pantene! The actress follows in the footsteps of other actresses, Naomi Watts and Eva Mendes.

She’ll appear in the Pantene Beautiful Lengths campaign, and the actress is said to be “so excited” to be working with the brand.

In her usual quirky rhetoric, the 32-year-old said in a behind-the-scenes video: ‘I am so excited to be a part of the Pantene family. I’m really into hair! So, I just like hair, so… that sounded weird.’

She continued: ‘Being a “Pantene girl” has been a dream of mine since I was a little kid.’

Calling her a ‘breath of fresh air for the brand,’ Kevin Crociata, Marketing Director of North American Hair Care at Procter & Gamble said she ‘perfectly fits the fun side of Pantene’.

He added: ‘Additionally, her signature long, healthy looking hair is right on target for the Pantene Beautiful Lengths Collection, a line designed to give breakage protection to help women achieve long, strong hair.’

Created in 2006, the Pantene Beautiful Lengths program encourages women to cut and donate their hair so it can be turned into real-hair wigs.

The wigs are then distributed free of charge at American Cancer Society Wig Banks to women across the US who are undergoing cancer treatment.

Miss Deschanel is equally as enthusiastic about the cause, saying: ‘Pantene is helping to provide confidence and beautiful real-hair wigs to women who have lost their hair due to cancer treatment; you can’t put a price on that.’


Love her!


Cameron Diaz’s short haircut left her in tears.

Cameron Diaz recently told InStyle her short haircut was “freeing” — but she had very different words for Jay Leno Tuesday night.

“There was a little misunderstanding,” she explained on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno of her pre-Christmas cut. “I said, ‘Oh I just want a little bit off’ … and it went from here to here,” she added, gesturing two very different hair lengths.

Once Diaz saw the new do, her reaction wasn’t so pleasant. “I just burst into tears and started crying, and I felt so vulnerable,” she explained. “For a woman to all of a sudden have no hair, oh my god.”

What made the situation even more awkward was the fact that Diaz’s hairstylist happened to be a good friend. “I felt really bad, she felt really bad, she started crying, I started crying, a couple of other people started crying,” Diaz said. But soon the situation smoothed over. “I ended up writing her a few emails after, the next couple days, assuring her I wasn’t going to kill her.”

As Leno pointed out, it’s unique that Diaz gets her haircuts from a friend (in that friend’s kitchen, no less) — not at a chic Los Angeles salon. But the actress said she’s been getting kitchen haircuts from this friend — and her own mother — for quite some time. She joked, “I’m in her kitchen often with the cape around my neck, going, ‘I hope we’re not going to cook after that.’”
