Beth Ditto MAC Collaboration Set For June

Beth Ditto is ready to make her mark.

The Gossip singer, who has been happily embraced by the fashion industry despite her decidedly non-fashion size, is signing on with MAC Cosmetics for a limited edition collaboration. Women’s Wear Daily reports that Ditto, who often boasts her own bold eye makeup, will create signature products to hit MAC stores and counters in June.

Ditto has also formed a positive connection with MAC, even performing at the brand’s New York store on Fashion’s Night Out in 2011. Now, like Daphne Guinness and Iris Apfel before her, Ditto will lend her name and distinctive style to MAC.

No word yet on specific products, but we’re guessing there will be some dark eyeliner and awesome colored eyeshadow involved.

Jennifer Connelly named the face of Shiseido (AGAIN) after first appearing in their ads 25 years ago!

Jennifer Connelly has been signed as the first global spokesperson for Shiseido – but this isn’t her first time representing the brand.

“I’ve had a long relationship with Shiseido – I worked with them in the Eighties on an ad campaign, and have been using their products ever since,” the Academy Award-winning actress told WWD. “It’s nice to reconnect with them after so many years.”

Here’s more from the press release!

As Shiseido Co., Ltd. celebrates its 140th anniversary, the company announced that it has signed Academy Award-winning actress, Jennifer Connelly, who previously represented the company in Asia. Connelly will be the namesake brand’s global spokesperson and face of its highly acclaimed premium skincare line Future Solution LX. Connelly’s first advertising campaign as global spokesperson will debut this fall.

“I am honored to be working with Shiseido again and to be representing the Future Solution LX line globally,” said Jennifer Connelly. “Like Shiseido, I believe it is important to prepare now for our future well being. I look forward to sharing my journey with Future Solution LX with women worldwide.”

While this marks the first time the brand will be working with a global spokesperson, this will not be the first time Shiseido has worked with the classic beauty; more than two decades ago, Connelly appeared in an advertising campaign for a Shiseido makeup brand that was distributed in Japan.

“We are thrilled to welcome Jennifer back to our family as we celebrate our 140th anniversary,” stated Hiroshi Maruyama, General Manager of the International Marketing Department at Shiseido Co., Ltd. “Jennifer’s genuine personality, commitment to her family and approach to living a beautiful life embodies the core values of our company, and match those of the Shiseido customer. We believe that she portrays the essence of the Future Solution LX line perfectly and that her inner and outer beauty will inspire our customers.”

This spring, Connelly is appearing in her latest feature film “Virginia.” She has also starred in acclaimed movies including, “A Beautiful Mind,” for which she won an Oscar and Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress, “Reservation Road”, “Blood Diamond”, “Requiem for a Dream” and “The House of Sand and Fog.”

Love her, she’s so beautiful! Perfect for this line!

Jennifer Aniston graces the March cover of InStyle. Opens up about Brad, Justin and what makes her feel old!

Jennifer Aniston graces the March cover of InStyle Magazine. She looks gorgeous as ever (she just gets more and more beautiful as she gets older!). She’s currently promoting her new movie, ‘Wanderlust’, which comes out soon. This is the comedy where she fell in love with her current boyfriend, Justin Theroux.  The two have been dating ever since, and seem to be doing really well.

Of course the interviewer brought up Brad Pitt….again. I mean why not drudge up the past some, what, 7 years later? Here are some clips from the interview via Celebitchy:

Uncool Bermuda Triangle Misconceptions: “Which one? There are so many. I would say the triangle with my ex-husband – and that there’s a feud there. It’s constant. It’s a story headline that won’t go away, but it’s a money thing – [people make money off] a story that has nothing to do with reality.”

Her previous relationships sucked: “Having experienced everything you don’t want in a partner over time, it starts to narrow down what you actually do want. As I get older, I realize what qualities are important in love and what suits me. And what I won’t settle for.”

On her culinary skills: “I’d love to say I’m an accomplished cook, but I don’t have any signature dishes. I’m good at breakfast – I make great eggs. My father gave me a little recipe. It’s all in the seasoning. But it’s a Greek secret. I won’t give it away!”

On her favorite thing about boyfriend Justin Theroux’s style: “First of all, he has great style – it’s very specific, and it has been his style forever. Has it influenced mine? No, but I know people say it has.’Oh, look, you’re dressing alike.’ And I think, no I’m not. I’ve had this jacket for three years!”

On what career she’d pick if she had to change: “Directing. I was very proud of producing and directing for the beautiful project ‘Five.’ Or I’d love to be a dermatologist. I’d be so obsessive about it. I’m fascinated by skin, products, and lasers. I go on the Internet and read all about it. I call it ‘laser porn.’”

On the biggest risk she’s taken in life: “I’m not sure. Just walking out of the house can be a risk!”

Feeling old: “You know what makes me feel old? When I see girls who are 20-something, or the new crop of actresses, and think, Aren’t we kind of the same age?” the 43-year-old says. “I don’t feel my age. I feel young every day.”

She looks beautiful in these pictures. Flawless!


Elizabeth Banks reveals the secrets to her amazing body in the new ‘Women’s Health’ magazine!

Elizabeth Banks always looks amazingly beautiful, and the actress says she works hard to keep it that way. The 37-year-old actress reveals her grueling fitness regime in the March issue of Women’s Health Magazine.

In the interview, Elizabeth reveals the secret to her figure, explaining the great lengths she goes to to stay in shape.

“I do this system called TRX. It was developed by a Navy SEAL and is basically a simple cord that you can wrap around something anywhere, anytime, and you use your body weight as resistance,” she explains.

“We installed one in our home gym, but you can also attach it to a tree. It’s very easy to travel with.”

She does, however, let herself indulge in her favorites from time to time. “Pimm’s and ginger ale. Makes me very happy,” she says.

She also reveals her food vices, which include cupcakes, cheese, pesto, bread and cookie dough.

The actress admits that her looks often used to get in the way of getting certain roles.

‘I’m grateful for my career, but there’s a level of dissatisfaction that keeps me going,’ she says. ‘I’m always looking for challenges. I’m open to anything. I get out of the way of all plans.’

Before she became famous, Banks said that she used to do a little bit of modelling, but hardly enjoyed the job.

‘I did a little modeling, almost exclusively for the Petite Sophisticate catalog – not very glamorous. But it paid a lot of bills, and we got go to Miami in the winter,’ she explains.

Banks is about to star in the upcoming surefire hit The Hunger Games as escort tribute Effie Trinket.

She can currently be seen in the thriller Man On A Ledge and is part of the star studded cast of What To Expect When You’re Expecting, which will be released later this year in May.

I love Elizabeth. She is hilarious, and I can’t wait to see her in ‘Hunger Games’.
