Jennifer Lopez is gearing up to release a limited-edition line of cosmetics.

The superstar has teamed with Inglot Cosmetics to launch a 70-piece collection that will go on sale globally from 26 April (18). Items include powders, lipsticks, eyeshadows, false eyelashes, palettes, blushes and bronzers, which are all designed in shades of pale, nude, gold and shimmer to replicate Jennifer’s signature bronzed look.

“It is something I have been wanting to do for a very long time,” she told WWD. “A make-up line seemed like a natural progression since people are always asking about the products I use and how I get the glow to my skin. I really wanted to make it representative of what I would like, what I would use, from the colour but also the quality.”

Jennifer also explained that “the price point was very important” to her, and she’s proud to have created a line of “great quality products that are affordable”.

The On the Floor hitmaker worked closely with the Polish beauty brand to select specific colours, advise on packaging designs, and choose names which include Boogie Down Bronze and Livin’ the Highlight.

Fan also have an opportunity to sample the collection early, as one palette consisting of three eyeshadows and a sculpting powder, is being offered online on 17 April and will retail at $49 (£35).

Rumours of a future beauty project first surfaced in March when Jennifer’s make-up artist Scott Barnes divulged that she’s working on creating her own bronzing product.

The make-up line marks the 48-year-old’s first real venture into the cosmetics world, however, she has previously found success with her lifestyle brand, J.Lo by Jennifer Lopez, which offers clothing, eyewear, accessories and fragrances.

Jennifer Lopez is developing her own bronzer.

The superstar always pulls out all the stops for red carpet appearances, with her signature beauty look consisting of dewy skin and bronzed cheeks.

And it seems that Jennifer’s fans may soon be able to emulate her look at home, as her make-up artist Scott Barnes has just divulged that she’s working on creating her own bronzing product.

“I’m using a bronzer that @JLo is making its pretty amazing!! Shhh,” he posted on Instagram on Tuesday (13Mar18) in response to a follower who wanted to know what products he had used to create one Jennifer’s glowing looks for a recent event.

The Love Don’t Cost A Thing hitmaker is yet to speak about a potential beauty line, and her representatives have refused to expand on Scott’s revelation.

However, the idea has thrilled many social media users.

“OMG read Scott’s comment I think jlo is going to start a makeup line!!!!! OMG I’m gonna be bankrupt,” one commenter wrote, while another added: “I’ve been saying for years that @jlo should come out with a makeup line… I hope this might be true one day soon.”

The 48-year-old already owns J.Lo by Jennifer Lopez, a lifestyle brand she founded in 2001 which has launched products including clothing, eyewear, and accessories, as well as fragrances such as Still Jennifer Lopez and Glowing by JLo.

She also made a splash in the fashion world last year when she teamed up with one of her favourite footwear designers, Giuseppe Zanotti, to create a shoe range.

Her 16-piece luxury capsule collection included a wedge sneaker and a number of pairs of high heels, as well as lace-up booties which were covered in crystals.

Diane von Furstenberg happy to see feminism back in fashion

Diane von Furstenberg is happy to see the feminism is once again “back in fashion”.

The Belgian-born fashion designer redefined womenswear with the launch of her iconic wrap dress in 1974, and has gone on to outfit the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Lopez and former U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama.

Furstenberg has been an advocate for women’s rights ever since she launched her brand and is now excited to see feminist themes rise to the forefront of public conversation once again.

“I’ve always been a feminist, so for me, I was so happy to see that it came back into fashion, so to speak,” she said in an interview with Here & Now. “Because I was a feminist in the ’70s, but then my children’s generation, somehow, they took it a little bit for granted. But now I see for my granddaughters, they are not taking it for granted and they are very active.”

In response to the sexual harassment scandals currently rocking Hollywood, Furstenberg is certain that the “genie came out of the bottle” but will now “stay out”.

And she believes it is now more important than ever to show support for female-focused events such as International Women’s Day, which was marked on Thursday (08Mar18).

“I think every woman is a role model for other women when she’s willing to be honest and sincere, and talk about not only her successes, but also her challenges, her vulnerability and her fears,” the 71-year-old shared.

To celebrate women this week, Furstenberg is hosting a number of panels which are open to the public at her boutique in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District.

Mandy Moore has ditched her signature brunette hair for a dramatic new blonde look.

The This Is Us actress is no stranger to experimenting with hairstyles, often sporting her chestnut strands in chic buns and tumbling waves when she steps out on the red carpet.

But Mandy has now lightened up her tresses in a major way and took to Instagram on Sunday (25Feb18) to share a photo of her newly dyed hair.

“I’m slowly morphing into @streicherhair,” she captioned a photo herself with her lightened strands styled into loose curls alongside her hairstylist Ashley Streicher. “Now if I could only master those ‘cool girl’ waves all on my own. And yes, I wasted no time changing up my hair as sooooon as wrapped up the season on #thisisus (sic). As you do…”

Ashley, whose other clients include the likes of Alison Brie and Sarah Paulson, gave Mandy a shoulder-length crop, while celebrity colourist Tracey Cunningham, who also works with Khloe Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez, was in charge of her cool highlights.

Mandy, 33, finished up shooting the latest season of NBC drama show This Is Us on Friday. She re-tweeted a message from programme executive producer Ken Olin, and added: “Can’t believe it’s a wrap on season 2. Thanks to all those who have watched and enjoyed this year. The last 3 episodes are (great).”

Mandy first rocked blonde hair when she unveiled her debut single Candy in 1999. But the star recently revealed that she never felt comfortable with platinum tresses she wore at the time, and prefers a more natural look.

“There was definitely some dated hair that was no good,” she previously told PopSugar of the Candy video look. “I look at anything (from) when I’m a blonde, and I shudder a little bit to myself. I know it’s not terrible, and it was very of-the-moment, but it’s so not me. It seems so like a completely different person.”

Christian Louboutin faces setback in legal battle over red soles

Christian Louboutin’s bid to trademark his red-soled high heels is facing another setback.

The French footwear designer is known for his signature red-soled high heels, which are coveted by celebrities such as Kim Kardashian, Nicki Minaj, and Jennifer Lopez.

Previously, Louboutin has had his soles protected as a trademark in several countries, but in 2013 initiated litigation against Dutch company Van Haren over a pair of shoes with red soles sold in The Netherlands.

On Tuesday (06Feb18), an official at the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) stated that Louboutin’s trademark protection on the specific colour of red used on the shoes, which was held from 2010 until 2013, may be invalid.

“A trademark combining colour and shape may be refused or declared invalid on the grounds set out under EU trademark law,” said CJEU Advocate General Maciej Szpunar in a statement.

Szpunar advised that the trademark combining colour and shape could be declared invalid or refused on the grounds of EU trademark law, especially as shapes are not usually protected.

“(We) express doubts as to whether the colour red can perform the essential function of a trademark, that of identifying its proprietor, when that colour is used out of context, that is to say, separately from the shape of a sole,” Szpunar said, adding that his view did not take into account the value of the shoes or the “attractiveness of the goods flowing from the reputation of the mark or its proprietor”.

Once the CJEU comes to a decision, it will be left to a Dutch court to rule on whether or not Louboutin’s red sole can be trademarked.

In 2013, Louboutin filed a trademark infringement claim against Dr. Adams Footwear in Belgium. The Brussels Court of Appeal ruled in favour of him and forbade the sale of shoes with a red sole by the brand. While a Swiss court ruled in February 2017 that a trademark on red soles was invalid.

Louboutin is yet to comment on the latest development in the case.

Paul Marciano accuses Kate Upton of plotting harassment smear campaign

Guess co-founder Paul Marciano has accused Kate Upton of “maliciously and falsely” planning to claim that he groped her in a bid to damage his brand.

The model, who was once the face of Marciano’s clothing brand, shared her concerns about the fashion mogul on Instagram last Tuesday (30Jan18), accusing him of “using his power in the industry to sexually and emotionally harass women”.

Marciano denies he sexually harassed anyone and has now issued a statement to TMZ.com alleging Upton is planning to accuse him of groping her.

“I am told that she has been working with others for some time to defame me and will claim that I groped her among other things,” he said, before going on to accuse the 25-year-old of attempting to derail last week’s launch of Guess’ new campaign featuring Jennifer Lopez. “She levelled this malicious and false accusation only hours before a gala event at our headquarters in Los Angeles unveiling a new Guess campaign.”

Shares in the company fell by almost 20 per cent after the model posted her claims.

Upton did not make any specific allegations, but later reiterated her claims on Twitter and told a TMZ.com reporter she was “excited” to tell her story in due course.

Lopez, who attended the launch of her spring Guess campaign hours after the allegations became public, has said she supports any investigation into alleged inappropriate behaviour.

Bosses at the brand have said they will investigate Upton’s allegations once she outlines them in full. Editors at The Business of Fashion website report that Guess executives have previously investigated two harassment complaints made against Marciano but cleared him on both occasions.

Sources close to the fashion mogul have told TMZ that he believes Upton’s remarks are due to Guess bosses’ decision to drop her as a model after a photoshoot ended badly. Upton is yet to respond to Marciano’s claim she is orchestrating a smear campaign.
