Baby Fever Hits Hollywood

There seems to be baby fever in Tinseltown these days with celebrities like Kate Hudson, Jessica Alba, and Natalie Portman expecting special deliveries later this year. Well, before these mommies-to-be (and all other pregnant women out there) hear the pitter-patter of little feet, they should make sure to take the time to indulge themselves. Helen Ambrosen, LUSH product creator and mother of two, recommends these pre-natal products to do just that:

Therapy Massage Bar ($9.95) – ladies, take advantage of your significant other’s  hands while you have the chance and make them rub you from head to toe with this certified organic moisturizing bar. And don’t forget to massage Therapy on your bump to help prevent stretch marks. The cocoa and shea butter mix with neroli oil to moisturize dry skin and improve its flexibility and elasticity.

Butterball Bath Bomb ($4.95) – a celeb favorite (knocked up or not), this bath bomb is loaded with creamy cocoa butter to moisturize and calming ylang ylang. So, turn out the lights, put on some soothing tunes, fill the tub with warm water and toss in Butterball for a relaxing bath after a long day.

Herbalism Facial Cleanser ($13 for ¼ lb) – with pregnancy comes hormones…and lots of them. Attack acne (one side effect) by using this cleanser made with kaolin clay, ground almonds, stimulating rosemary, dirty defying nettle powder, and soothing chamomile.

Henna ($22.95) – since hair cannot be chemically colored during the first trimester, grab one of LUSH’s hair hennas. With four colors to choose from, our henna (sourced from Iran) is mixed with other natural ingredients like coffee and fresh lemon juice to naturally add color to hair.

Get Natalie Portman and Reese Witherspoon’s Oscar Hair – styled by Fekkai!

Frederic Fekkai’s Didier Malige styled Best Actress, Natalie Portman. I thought her hair was gorgeous!

INSPIRATION: A glamorous bohemian style that’s soft, romantic, and feminine

HOW TO:

1) Apply an anti-frizz product and volumizer before blow-drying the hair smooth using a round brush.

2) Then curl the hair using a 1” curling iron to create soft and feminine waves.

3) Next, create a foundation for the style by backcombing the bottom layers of the hair.

4) Sweep the hair to the left side of her face, securing with bobby pins.

5) For a finishing touch Didier used one of Natalie’s earrings as a shimmery accent piece.

6) Secure the look with a sheer hairspray.

She was so beautiful last night! I thought she looked great, and I was so happy she won the Best Actress Oscar for her performance in ‘Black Swan’.

Frederic Fekkai’s Renato Campora styled Presenter, Reese Witherspoon.

INSPIRATION: To compliment her gown, Renato channeled a mod-60’s high ponytail over combined with the top glamour

HOW TO:

1) Create the foundation for the style by applying Fekkai Coiff™ Bouffant Lifting & Texturizing Spray Gel and the Fekkai Silky Straight Ironless™ Smooth Finish Serum.

2) Blow-dry hair with the Fekkai Large Round Brush to enhance fullness and volume.

3) Divide the hair into two sections.

4) Using a 1 ½ curling iron create movement and volume on the bottom layer.

5) Tease the roots of the top section to create the volume.

6) Finish the look by spraying Fekkai Coiff™ Sheer Hold Hairspray to secure the silhouette and shape of the style

I missed seeing Reese on the Red Carpet – but when I saw her on the show – she definitely did not disappoint! She looked gorgeous! Can’t wait for her new movie, ‘Water For Elephants’.

Awesome Fekkai news – their products are now available at Target! Woohoo! (It’s all I use on my hair). You can also buy them online here.

Natalie Portman for Dior – more from her new ad campaign!

The actress, 29, is the new face of The Parfums Christian Dior line — and in a new ad for Miss Dior Cherie, Portman appears topless, with her hands covering her chest.

Wearing just a black bow in her hair, the Black Swan star gives a sexy look over her shoulder.

The ad — Portman’s first cosmetics endorsement deal — appears to have been shot prior to her announced pregnancy with fiance Benjamin Millepied’s child.

But R-rated poses are nothing new to Portman, who played a stripper in Closer, had a raunchy love scene with Mila Kunis in Black Swan, and sexy encounters with Ashton Kutcher in No Strings Attached.
