Your morning fashion and beauty report: Justin Bieber changes his hair, Kate Middleton chooses a hatmaker, Drew Barrymore exudes lasting style

February 22, 2011 |  8:24 am

OMG! Stop the presses. Justin Bieber got a haircut! Why, it was only last week when the cast of "Glee" paid tribute to his modern moptop (Puck shaking hair out of his eyes? LOL!). But now it's gone! [TMZ]

Adrew It's Drew Barrymore's birthday (number 36), and she's been a style maven for probably at least the last 20 of them. Say "happy birthday" by taking a look at some of her most memorable outfits. [FabSugar] 

What will you be wearing in spring of next year? Probably not 100% cotton. The high cost of the fiber is leading manufacturers to experiment with new blends and "alternative fiber mixes." [WWD] (Subscription required.)

And maybe not sandblasted jeans either. Two big players in the world of denim, Levi Strauss & Co. and H&M, are cooperating with the International Textile Garment & Leather Workers’ Federation to ban the sandblasting process, which can be hazardous for textile workers.

Looking for a new little something to lift yourself out of the winter doldrums? Consider trying out a new look for nails by copying one of the 30 best manicures at New York Fashion Week. [BellaSugar] 

JCPenney is planning to roll out a new slogan and logo in its commercials during Sunday's Academy Awards broadcast. Um, it seems to me that new logos haven't worked so well for some other established (one might say "heritage") companies. But only time will tell. [WWD] (Subscription required.) 

L.A. Rose Vintage Boutique, which opened at the Los Angeles Farmer's Market in November, is moving to a bigger spot on Melrose. The opening is slated for March 3. [Mondette]

The first French Vogue supervised by new editor Emmanuelle Alt is slated to arrive on newsstands in early March. It will feature Gisele on the cover, dressed in Dolce & Gabbana. [Vogue UK] 

OK, this does not really strike me as news, but since I'm obsessed right now with all-things-Kate I must report that Kate Middleton has signed up premiere London hatmaker Philip Treacy to design headgear she'll wear on her wedding day. (Princess-to-be chooses top British hatmaker ... no surprise there.) It's unclear, though, whether Treacy is designing something she'll wear before, during or after the wedding ceremony. Yes, several changes of outfit are expected. [FabSugar UK]
