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!

T Exclusive Video – A Polished Look by Chanel

When Peter Philips, Chanel’s creative director for makeup, wanted to showcase the latest collection of Chanel nail polish on film, he called upon Ruth Hogben, a London filmmaker known for her work with Gareth Pugh and Louis Vuitton. The inspiration to use sign language came shortly after.

In this video, the Dutch model Saskia De Brauw manually conveys some of Coco Chanel’s most famous quotes; while her hands do the talking, her fingernails show off an array of chic Chanel lacquers.

Katharine McPhee’s stunning makeup from last night’s “Christmas in Rockefeller Center”

I watched “Christmas in Rockefeller Center” last night on NBC, and one thing that stood out to me (more than the strange music video starring Justin Bieber and Mariah Carey) was Katharine McPhee’s STUNNING makeup. Once I saw it – I knew I HAD to have it.  She wore this gorgeous nude color eyeshadow that glittered, and it looked so glamorous. Not cheap looking at all! She topped the eye shadow with a thick black eye liner, and the look was beyond gorgeous.

I knew I had to figure out what she was wearing – so I took to Twitter – and it looks like I’m not the only one who was asking! Her top tweet read: “4 those who asked abt my eye shadow last nt…my makeup artist explains…”@Beau_Nelson: She’s got pretty sparkly eyes courtesy of@CHANEL

Her makeup artist continued; “She also has pretty matte rose lips by @JoeFreshNY and black liquid liner by @COVERGIRL. And can we talk about her beautiful skin? @shuuemura nobara stick! My favorite! Shimmery love lust blush from @tomford finishes the look.”

I went digging further and found that Katharine is wearing Illusion D’Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow in Fantasme. It is GORGEOUS. I’m ordering mine now, have to have it.

This intensely shimmering long-wear eyeshadow offers true versatility. An innovative gel texture that is both soft and cushiony allows it to be worn as eyeshadow or eyeliner. Includes a specially designed shadow/liner brush, developed specifically for this unique formula.

Go get it yourself! $36


Blake Lively says NYC made her trendy.

Blake Lively says she has a better wardrobe since living in New York.

The 23-year-old American actress has become an international star thanks to her role in the hit US teen drama Gossip Girl.

Blake enjoys the perks of starring in the popular TV show, which follows the lives of a group of stylish youngsters living in New York. The star says her wardrobe is far more impressive since appearing on the glamorous series.

“None of it is mine. It’s nice to play dress-up, it’s like being a little girl and putting on make-up and outfits. I grew up in Burbank [California] and I love living in New York City so much [because of the shopping] and I now have a way better wardrobe,” she said in an interview with British newspaper The Independent.

The beauty plays Serena van der Woodsen in the popular show, and is often compared to her charismatic character. Blake says although she wears the same kind of clothes and lives in the same city, she is rather unlike her fictional character Serena.

“I wear pretty clothes and live in New York so people think I’m very similar to her; they see her talk and interact in their homes once a week and they probably assume that is who I am, but it’s not me,” she explained.
