Brad Pitt’s Terrible Chanel No.5 Fragrance Campaign

Chanel No. 5 used to be all about the women, their little secret and exquisite treat. But Brad Pitt’s terrible Chanel No. 5 fragrance campaign might have ruined it for everybody.

Chanel recently announced Brad Pitt will be its first male spokesperson. It sounded somewhat exciting, but the latest Chanel No. 5 commercial starring Brad Pitt was “terrible”, “awful”, “embarrassing” and “uncomfortable”, the kind for your “grandmother’s favorite perfume”. In a nutshell, it’s a cheesy commercial for a company that used to have the most elegant commercials.

Brad Pitt is the kind of star that steals the spotlight without much effort. But while he is a very popular actor, when bad writing is involved not even the best actor will manage to save the “part”. The latest Chanel No. 5 fragrance commercial features a long, almost uncomfortable monologue by Brad Pitt about, well, himself.

“It’s not a journey, every journey ends but we go on, the world turns and we turn with it”says Brad Pitt and as you wait star-dazed for the line that will sweep off your feet. But then, Brad Pitt goes on with his monologue. “Plans disappear and dreams take over. But where ever I go – there you. My luck. My fate. My fortune. Chanel No. 5 inevitable” Brad Pitt concludes.

Suddenly being seduced by Brad Pitt doesn’t seem to be that exciting as all women hope. Fox News writes that the Chanel No. 5 fragrance commercial is embarrassing. In fact even Brad Pitt “looks a little embarrassed: probably because he knows bad writing when he hears it”.

Hollywood.com also says bad writing ruined Brad Pitt and Chanel No. 5 for women. “His eyes dart all around the set like a hummingbird on a Red Bull bender. If I had to read this script, I’d have a hard time looking you in the eyes, too” the website comments.

The Brad Pitt terrible Chanel No. 5 commercial draw a lot of negative comments about the company’s lack of inspiration. In the end they paid Brad Pitt $7 million, but not even he managed to save the campaign’s bad writing. Maybe the marketing team should be paid better to avoid any other embarrassing moments.

Tia Mowry Cried Over Short Pixie Cut

When celebrities go for a drastic hairstyle change, it’s often an emotional event. Tia Mowry told Us Weekly she cried over her short pixie cut.

It looks like there’s a new hairstyle trend rising among celebrities: the pixie cut. Miley Cyrus, then Anne Hathaway, Lena Dunham and now Tia Mowry have all chopped their locks and went for a super-short pixie cut. Tia Mowry confessed she had a hard time letting go of her locks and has “definitely cried” over her new pixie cut.

Whereas Miley Cyrus’ pixie cut was a rebellious act meant to prove she’s not a child anymore, Tia Mowry’s hairstyle change is not about fashion or rebellion. The star of the BET series “The Game” has a lot on her plate and cutting her hair might just be a way of saving time. Tia Mowry-Housley is a first time mom working on ABC Family’s holiday movie Mistle-Tones, whereas her reality show “Tia & Tamera” is about to premiere on Style Network.

The 34-year-old told Us Weekly she had a hard time with her new pixie cut. “I cried! I’m just going to be honest with you, I definitely cried” Tia Mowry confessed. “I really wasn’t expecting the shock value” she added as people started asking for her advice when other women thought about chopping their locks.

“I said, ‘Don’t think about it because if you do you won’t do it.’ But it’s very liberating and it definitely saves time” Tia Mowry said about her super-short pixie cut. “I am so happy that I decided to cut my hair. It literally takes me three minutes to do my hair. I get out of the shower, put some conditioner in it, and it’s just let’s go and I love that” the 34-year-old actress added.

Since cutting her hair gives her more free time, Tia Mowry is planning to spend that with her first child, Cree Taylor, who was born June 28, 2011. And although Tia Mowry dropped that baby weight successfully, she was shocked to find that her “belly didn’t completely go down”. She even asked her doctor how come there are “so many women in the media flaunting their bodies 4 weeks after having a baby” and why her body hasn’t. “Tia, it takes up to a year” her doctor said. “So, I wish somebody would have been honest with me about that” the star concluded.

Thin Sarah Palin Writes A Fitness Book

Bristol Palin looks amazing on the new season of DWTS whereas her mother, Sarah Palin, is shockingly thin. Sarah Palin is writing a fitness book that contributed to the amazing weight loss.

Whereas a lot will say that Sarah Palin wasn’t quite the politician, nobody will deny that she is a great entertainer. The former Governor thrives under the spotlight, whether it’s a reality show, a book or TV appearances. A very thin Sarah Palin announced this week that she is writing a fitness book.

Earlier this week, photos of a very thin Sarah Palin went viral online, as people started to think she was sick. Sarah Palin announced she is just fine, as a matter of fact she was working on a new book, dedicated to…fitness. The whole Palin family is said to be helping with the book.

“Our family is writing a book on fitness and self-discipline focusing on where we get our energy and balance as we still eat our beloved homemade comfort foods!” Sarah Palin told People magazine in an email.

Sarah Palin described her new project to be a “unique and motivating book”. “We promise you what we do works and allows a fulfilling quality of life and sustenance anyone can enjoy” she added.

Bristol Palin made a shocking appearance on this season of “Dancing With The Stars”, with an amazing figure. Us Weekly asked Bristol Palin what’s the secret of her amazing weight loss. “I’m just more active and I cut all the crap out of my diet. It’s that simple” Bristol Palin said.

Plus, being a mom is great exercise. “And my kid’s a lot more rowdy, a lot more active. I’m running after him a lot! He’s huge! He thinks he’s a teenager already” Bristol Palin added.

Last week, Bristol Palin made the headlines in a report about a white powder package addressed to her name. The FBI is said to have started an investigation, although the white powder in the package proved to be harmless. But Bristol Palin wasn’t all that worried about the many death threats she received this fall.

The Beauty Trends That Experts Recommend For Fall/Winter 2012

Daily Gossip has prepared a list of beauty trends that experts recommend for the new fall/winter 2012 season. Some of the trends have been preserved from last year’s tendencies, whereas others are completely new. Either way, there is a wide variety of makeup ideas, so women can afford to adopt a new look each day.

The bare-faced look remains the favorite trend of this winter, as well because it is easy to achieve and very appropriate for the cold and humid days of the upcoming season. Having a flawless complexion is the main condition you must fulfill in order to properly wear this trend. Clean and hydrate your complexion as often as possible and drink lots of water to have a glowing skin. The bare-faced look is recreated with foundation and powder. You may personalize the look by adding a little bit of nude color on the cheeks, the eyes and the lips. Some designers, including Dolce & Gabbana added dimension to this trend by over shaping the eyebrows with dark shadow.

Smoky eyes suffered dramatic changes during the last fashion events. The models presenting Diane Von Furstenberg and Valentino’s collections sported smoky eyes recreated with vivid colors, such as, blue, red and brown, instead of the classic black makeup.

Women who are tired of smoky eyes and are ready to embrace something even more extravagant can wear the eyeliner/graphic eyes look. This trend requires a perfect mastering of the eyeliner, be it black or vividly colored. Beauty experts used triangles, lines and various other shapes to prove women that they can obtain interesting visual effects with the minimum effort. For a unique look, use white eye shadow and black eyeliner to create monochromatic designs like the ones presented by Giorgio Armani.

The color blocking trend that has been so obsessive during the warm summer months has passed from outfits to makeup. Thus, the models’ eyes were adorned with shades of contrasting colors for an out of the ordinary style.

 

Indoor Tanning Is The Cause Of 170,000 Skin Cancers Each Year

For the nearly 30 million people indoor tanning in the United States each year, a study has bad news to bring. Indoor tanning has been confirmed as the cause of 170,000 skin cancers each year. So, more than one million Americans indoor tanning each day should think twice when the selling pitch reads a tanning bed is beneficial to their health.

Just think about it for a second: how exactly healthy and safe could indoor tanning be when your skin is bombarded with high quantities of UV-A and UV-B rays? Indoor tanning gets you that precious sun color on your skin in only a few minutes, but have you ever asked yourself if that’s healthy? A new study confirms that indoor tanning is linked to skin cancer. More exactly some 170,000 skin cancers each year are caused by indoor tanning alone!

The Centers for Disease and Control has indoor tanning linked to skin cancer and eye cancer risk. Whereas out of the nearly 30 million Americans using tanning beds and sun lamps, 2.3 million are teenagers. Four in five tanning salons tell their clients indoor tanning is healthier than tanning in the sun and promote it as a safe way to get vitamin D. These are myths that a recent study had them totally debunked.

“Not only do tanning beds cause melanoma, the most deadly form of skin cancer, but our study shows they also contribute to the most common cancer, basal and squamous cell skin cancer” reads a statement by lead researcher Dr. Eleni Linos. “We could prevent hundreds of thousands of cancers each year by avoiding tanning beds” the assistant professor of dermatology at the University of California, San Francisco, added.

The study that confirms indoor tanning is linked to skin cancer is an in-depth analysis of 12 studies on almost 81,000 people. After reviewing the numbers, researchers found that indoor tanning is responsible for some 170,000 skin cancers a year, including both basal and squamous cell carcinomas.

“With this study, we finally have strong evidence that tanning beds contribute to all types of skin cancer including basal cell, squamous cell and melanoma” said Dr. Eleni Linos. And younger people are the most vulnerable. “This means there is a clear cancer risk for teenagers who use tanning beds, and it’s hard to argue with regulations to protect children from cancer” the researcher added.

Fall/Winter 2012 Runway Hairstyles

Designers and fashion consumers alike seem to have fallen so deeply in love with the trends of this year’s warm season that they have decided to keep them for several more months. Apart from some minor changes, the fall/winter 2012 runway hairstyles are very similar to the ones we have seen in the previous collections.

Loose textures and waves continue to remain the favorite hairstyles of this winter, judging by the number of designers who have chosen a relaxed look for their models. This trend is perfect for women with curly or wavy hair as they no longer have to use a curling iron to style their locks. A texturizer or a shine serum is enough to create a casual glam effect and enhance your natural curls.

At the opposite end, are the everlasting ponytails, which have made a strong comeback this year. Given their functionality, ponytails represent the best choice for cold days. Designers have inspired us with numerous ideas, so you can gather your hair in a low, centered, high or even swished to the side ponytail, depending on your preferences. Sleek and side-parted ponytails were a constant presence on the runways, but you can also add a little bit of volume on the crown for a more 60s inspired look.

Braids have been every girl’s ally this summer and it seems like the trend will continue for at least a season. Hair gurus invent new braided coifs each day, so there is a wide range of looks you may recreate for a casual, day style. Whether you opt for a half-up half-down braided hairstyle, a side braid or a messy braided bun this trend is very practical because it helps you keep your hair in place and look chic at the same time.

Last, but not least, designers recommend the updos for the fall/winter 2012 season. These hairstyles represent a quick fix during the “bad hair” days and they can work miracles on your overall look. The look is also very versatile as you can wear a messy bun, a ballerina bun, a braided bun, etc. The best advantage, however, is that you only need 2 minutes to shape your hair into any updo you like, so it’s a perfect choice for busy women.

Taylor Swift Talks About Shoot For Glamour November

For the Glamour November 2012 issue the magazine chose Taylor Swift for a ‘40s meets 70s’ pictorial. In an interview with ABC News, Taylor Swift talks about the shoot for Glamour November.

On “Good Morning America” Taylor Swift and Glamour magazine revealed in exclusivity pictures from the shooting session they made for the November 2012 issue. Taylor Swift spilled the beans about some behind-the-scenes details and talked to “Nightline” anchor Cynthia McFadden about how it feels like preparing a shoot.

On October 9, Glamour magazine will release its November 2012 issue featuring Taylor Swift in a breathtaking pictorial. “I love these shoots, cover shoots, because I really just let them do what they want” Taylor Swift confessed to anchor Cynthia McFadden. “I used to be particular about things. I used to ask, ‘well, what are you going to do with my hair…’Now I walk in and I’m like, ‘what you want to do…I don’t care” the six-time Grammy winner added.

The Taylor Swift Glamour November shoot is set on an old train and it kind of combines the 40s and the 70s. “In the context of a train with bags and stuff, it was awesome… no way to get anywhere in that without being noticed” Taylor Swift had to say about the shoot location.

Photographer Ellen von Unwerth had Taylor Swift dress up in several designer outfits, but she chose a gold Burberry sequin tank and a Dior skirt for the magazine’s cover. Glamour aimed with the November 2012 issue to have Taylor Swift channel herself three years ago, just as her career was launching.

“She’s one of those people who everyone relates to so her covers sell really well, but they also just make women feel good” Cindi Lieve, Glamour’s editor-in-chief, told ABCNews.com about Taylor Swift. Glamour had Taylor Swift on its cover three years ago, but this time around Lieve said that the artist wanted to go for “a more glammed up, sophisticated moment”.

“I love clothes and I tend to go through very definitive phases of what I like wearing” Taylor Swift told “Nightline” anchor Cynthia McFadden. “Right now, it’s all vintage dresses, kind of fancy lady outfits. I was getting ready the other night I was like, ‘where are my pearls?’” the 22-year-old star confessed.

Thanks to her mom, Bristol Palin achieved a semi-celebrity status and if for the most part she wasn’t all that impressing, her new figure on DWTS surely is. Bristol Palin simply looks amazing on DWTS!

Monday night, Bristol Palin took the dance floor at “Dancing With The Stars”. Sure, it’s nothing impressive about that. But Bristol Palin’s new figure and obvious weight loss surely is. Bristol Palin looks so amazing, it is practically jaw-breaking. In an interview with Us Weekly, Bristol Palin revealed her weight loss secrets.

Whereas Pamela Anderson didn’t have such a good night at “Dancing With the Stars”, Bristol Palin finally made it happen. She looked so amazingly skinny and fit, for the first time she managed to leave people breathless with appreciation. It hasn’t happened that often for her, so it’s a milestone for sure.

Bristol Palin’s slimmer waistline has surely impressed. She told Us Weekly in a backstage interview she is “definitely in better shape” than the last time. “I’m just more active and I cut all the crap out of my diet. It’s that simple” Bristol Palin said of her weight loss secret. “And my kid’s a lot more rowdy, a lot more active. I’m running after him a lot! He’s huge!

Lady Gaga Gained 25 Pounds

Earlier this week, Lady Gaga was in Amsterdam for a concert. Apart from smoking a joint, Lady Gaga shocked by not fitting her once skinny body in the stockings. In a recent interview Lady Gaga confessed she gained 25 pounds and is now on a diet.

Tabloid media and fans remained puzzled by Lady Gaga’s Amsterdam pictures. Lady Gaga looked like she gained some weight, in fact in some pictures, it was hard to tell which curve starts where. So, it wasn’t us having eye problems, it was in fact Lady Gaga that was thicker. She told radio host Elvis Duran she gained 25 pounds.

So fat Lady Gaga is possible, and it’s not because of drinking as some have suggested. Lady Gaga got curvier after indulging some culinary guilty pleasures, including pizza and pasta. And anyone who had a delicious Italian dinner knows how hard it is to pull away from the culinary dreamland.

“I’m dieting right now, because I gained, like, 25 pounds” Lady Gaga told Elvis Duran in a radio interview. “And you know I really don’t feel bad about it, not even for a second. I have to be on such a strict diet constantly. It’s hard because it’s a quite vigorous show, so I tend to bulk up, get muscular and I really don’t like that”, Lady Gaga confessed about her dieting.

Lady Gaga says she is “trying to find a new balance” between indulging in culinary guilty pleasures but staying within a normal weight. It’s not going to be easy. “I love eating pasta and pizza. I’m a New York Italian girl. That’s why I have been staying out of New York” the Monster Queen added.

The master chef behind Lady Gaga’s guilty pleasures is Joe Germanotta, her dad. “My father opened a restaurant. It’s so amazing…it’s so freaking delicious, but I’m telling you I gain five pounds every time I go in there” Lady Gaga laughed. “So my dad wants me to eat at the restaurant, and I’m, like, I’ve got to go where I can drink green juice” she added.

Sure, Lady Gaga fat doesn’t look good on stage, but eating salads each day isn’t really everybody’s dream. When she was doing that, people criticized her. In April, the Monster Queen tweeted: “Just killed back to back spin classes. Eating a salad dreaming of a cheeseburger. Pop singers don’t eat. I was born this way”.
