Lots of attention is being give to Christina Aguilera's flubbing of the national anthem at the Super Bowl. She did mess up, but she at least looked good doing it in her black Dolce & Gabbana suit. Meanwhile, Lea Michele's version of America the Beautiful was spot-on, but that bulky coat and too-big-looking pants? What was she thinking? You can vote on which was the better singer over at our Ministry of Gossip poll. And comment on this post if you have thoughts about their attire.

Lady Gaga tweeted her first-ever U.S. Vogue cover on Sunday. As you might expect, she looks fairly tame and more sophisticated than usual -- this is Vogue, after all -- but is wearing a short, bobbed pink wig along with a jumpsuit by Haider Ackermann. [BellaSugar Australia)

"Hairstyles: Ancient to Present" by Charlotte Fiell, just released in the U.K., traces the history of all the many things women have done to achieve the latest coiffures. The top style of 1772 was 'the full headdress' or 'opera box', a style 4 feet from the chin to top of the head. A magazine that appeared about the same time listed more than 3,700 hairstyles. Seems like we have it pretty easy today. [Telegraph]
