Your morning fashion and beauty report: Heather Morris 'Flirts,' Gwyneth Paltrow shocks and British Vogue picks 20 best-dressed

December 16, 2010 |  8:56 am


-- Heather Morris -- you know her at Brittany on "Glee"-- has been tapped as brand ambassador for Flirt, a beauty line owned by Estee Lauder. Through next fall, the blond dancer/actress will promote products such as All That Lash mascara and Luv-A-Licious fragrance. [WWD]

-- The amazing white, lace-up Pucci dress Gwyneth Paltrow wore to the Los Angeles premiere of "Country Strong" is getting a lot of buzz of the shock-and-awe variety: Why didn't it fall off? What, no knickers? How can a woman older than 25 get away with that? Well, she could, she did and FabSugar  shows some similar, albeit less risky, alternatives. 

-- Speaking of amazing dresses, Fashionista has a snapshot of Nicole Richie in the very, very froufrou Marchesa ball gown that she wore at her wedding. It is not a look just anyone could pull off, with a tight fitting bodice that blooms into the frilliest puff of a tulle skirt. But Nicole looks lovely!

-- Lady Gaga, Kate Moss, Emma Watson, Carey Mulligan, Keira Knightley and Kate Winslet are among the fashionable ladies on British Vogue's list of 20 best-dressed in 2010. [Vogue UK]

-- Designer Diane von Furstenberg will be among honorees receiving the AmFAR Award of Courage in February. She and fellow recipients Bill Clinton and Elizabeth Taylor are slated to receive the awards at a gala thrown by the AIDS foundation in New York. [WWD]

-- Exhibition, a new luxury magazine, has an unusual plan: to publish once a year and explore just one topic. The inaugural issue will be on newsstands globally in January and will be dedicated to lipstick. That's right: lipstick. Who knew we needed an entire issue of a magazine devoted to it? [BellaSugar]

-- For next fall, men's suit designers are shifting away from the 1950s "Mad Men" aesthetic to clothing with more body and strong patterns such as herringbones, tweeds and plaids. [WWD] (subscription required)
