You might have heard of this little movie called 'Twilight', starring Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. It seems 'New Moon', the vampire flicks' second instalment, has inspired a makeup collection from the cult brand DuWop.
And what, pray tell, does a Twilight-inspired makeup collection look like? For starters, there'll be a version of the brand's Lip Venom plumper that'll be separated so one half looks like blood. Can we also expect the palest foundation this side of a geisha girl's makeup stand?
The products are said to be launching later this year, but you might want to line up now. You know a gaggle of hopeful Edward Cullen suitors can make for a crazy scene.

Of the new-retro singers, Duffy is pretty much what Mandy Moore was to the girl pop stars of the late '90s. (Amy Winehouse is Xtina, natch, and although she's a non-lipsynching musical genius, Adele has to be Britney because you always get the impression she could go a bit wild.)
Duffy went to Sweden this weekend for Stockholm's 'Where the Action Is' music festival, and she seems to be going a bit more modern with her hairstyle. Do you like her going more natural, or do you miss the beehive?

Raquel Zimmermann showed off her new blonde locks at the Met Ball this week with Proenza Schouler designers Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough. We've already seen models Daul Kim and Iekeliene Stange trade brown for blonde, and the only thing we can say is that summer is coming. Do you change your hair to follow the seasons?
For their current Anthology frangrance campaign, D&G were inspired by tarot cards. The result? Models Claudia Schiffer, Eva Herzigova, Naomi Campbell, Noah Mills and Tyson Ballou naked in a steamy campaign shot by Mario Testino.
Ah, the perks of watching a company reflect on the past 20 years.

Can't get enough of Kinky in Helsinki? You, my friend, are in luck.
