From Spanish lettering to bold colors, get inside the creative mind of Kat Von D as she gives the inside scoop on her design process—straight from the set of her Mi Vida Loca shoot.

Check out Ke$ha’s dramatic make-under!

Ke$ha is known for her face paint, body glitter and flashy clothes. But the singer posed for a serious make-under for Glamour Magazine!

The 24-year-old took off her makeup, and wore more feminine clothes in Glamour’s newest issue. In the interview, Ke$ha admits she doesn’t normally wash her makeup off, and wears the same things over and over.

She said: “My makeup is usually left over from the night before. I’m not really worried about the photographs because if I tell my fans not to give a f*** about the haters, then I have to practice what I preach. I embrace the imperfections and celebrate them.”

Ke$ha, who can play the guitar and piano, also explained how much she loves wearing her now famous body paint.

She said: ‘Oh, the body paint stays. It’s my favorite thing to do.

‘Sometimes I have parties at my house in Nashville and it’s clothing-optional, and we just body-paint each other and run around, and I have a giant bed.

‘I’m very much in touch with that side of myself.’

For the dramatic make-under the singer can be seen in minimal make-up with her long blonde hair treated and styled as opposed to her normal wild designs.

The We R Who We R singer is pictured wearing a pair of fishnet tights and a white off-the-shoulder jumper as she poses elegantly before slipping into a orange maxi dress.

Despite the classy outfits, Ke$ha is still as honest as ever about her career and didn’t hold back with her typical rock star attitude.

She said: ‘I know that I have balls. I have bigger balls than a lot of the men that I meet.

‘I’m just a ballsy motherf*****. I’m not afraid of pushing boundaries. That’s what you have to do to become an icon.’

The chart-topper continued: ‘Eventually, I would love to be on my deathbed and looked at as an icon.

‘Right now I’m still at the baby stages of my career. But that is the goal.’

She looks so beautiful in these pictures! She looks so much better without all the layers of crap she’s normally wearing.

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!
