Is Rihanna hurting Covergirl?


From TMZ:

Revlon has secretly hired a huge polling company to find out if Rihanna is hurting its competitor, Covergirl.

An online survey is circulating by the folks over at Harris Interactive. The survey — which TMZ learned was commissioned by Revlon — features a Covergirl commercial for mascara. It then questions people if they are aware of the person in the commercial (without saying Rihanna’s name), if they’ve heard about her in the news lately, if they have an opinion about the person and if they feel the person is “an appropriate spokesperson” for the product.

The obvious implication here — are women pissed off that Rihanna got back with Chris Brown and therefore would be less likely to buy Covergirl products?

It was confirmed with Harris Interactive that the poll is a “proprietary study by Revlon” — translation: no one was supposed to know Revlon was doing recon on its competitor.

Miranda Kerr at a Victoria’s Secret Model Launch event at The Grove in Los Angeles, March 10


Orlando Bloom’s girlfriend Miranda Kerr strikes a pose at the Victoria’s Secret Model Launch event at The Grove on Tuesday (March 10) in Los Angeles.

The 25-year-old Aussie model was joined by Namibian model Behati Prinsloo and former Project Runway designer Christian Siriano.

The trio helped launch a beauty line from PINK, a sub-brand of Victoria’s Secret geared towards high school students and college undergraduates.



Lindsay Lohan is launching her own self-tanning mist called Sevin Nyne.


Lindsay Lohan’s 6126 leggings line was a smash hit, so it only makes sense for her to follow it up with a line of self-tanner, launching April 15. Sticking to numerical nomenclature, LiLo decided to call the self-tanning mist Sevin Nyne, a play on her favorite numbers (methinks this is such an idiotic name…if you care). Originally Lohan planned to launch Sevin Nyne under Stay Gold LLC, the company she founded along with three other ladies for her 6126 launch, but for some mysterious reason, those plans fell through, aptly named though that company may be.

Lindsay devised the product with Lorit Simon, a “tanning expert” who has bronzed the starlet over the years for events and fashion spreads. DHA is the active ingredient, and the spray doesn’t contain any chemicals. Other ingredients include caramel, Chardonnay extracts, gogi berry, and a sugar-coconut base. The color lasts for four to five days, which isn’t very long, so you’d have to buy a lot of it to stay tanned sans sun for the summer.

The Sevin Nyne website is slated to launch in about 45 days when products are available April 15th on Product enters Sephora on May 1 for a six-month exclusive and retail for $35.

Here are some promotional pictures released for Sevin Nyne.

Jennifer Aniston spends HOW MUCH on her hair?!


Amid a sea of beehives, bouffants and buns, it was a remarkably low-key affair.

In fact, Jennifer Aniston’s red-carpet hairstyle looks like something most of us could attempt with a decent pair of straightening irons and a bit of patience.

But astonishingly, the sleek style cost the actress almost $51,000.

The sky-high bill came because Miss Aniston, 40, insisted her hairdresser Chris McMillan accompany her on a week-long trip to Europe.

He flew with her from Los Angeles to London in first class last week, at an estimated cost of $18,300 each.

They returned to London so Miss Aniston could walk the red carpet at Leicester Square on Monday.


On top of this, Mr. McMillan was treated to an all-expenses-paid stay at several top hotels for the seven-day visit at a cost of $12,700.

It is thought that he also charged up to $1,900 a day for his tress-teasing expertise, pushing up the bill by another $13,200.

It is unclear whether Mr. McMillan, who is a close friend of Miss Aniston, was paid personally by her or by the film’s production company, Fox.

Earlier, the actress revealed that her love of the natural look is not restricted to her hair.

‘I tried Botox once and it was really not good for me,’ she told Elle magazine. ‘I felt like I had a weight on my head.’

She added: ‘I think it makes women look older. Harder. The warmth in their face goes away.

‘You see women and you know they’re not young, but you can’t tell how old they are. That’s what stopped me.’
Then he accompanied her on a private jet trip to Paris for a premiere of her latest film Marley & Me – racking up another $5,000 bill.
