[Updated] Your Morning Fashion and Beauty Report: Lady Gaga dresses as modern Mary Magdalene for 'Judas.' Salma Hayek launches beauty line.

How would a modern-day Mary Magdalene dress? In rocker/motorcycle gear, as Lady Gaga sees it. At least that's how the singer is clad as she portrays the biblical figure in her controversial new video, "Judas." Wait. Did I just say Lady Gaga dresses in a controversial way? Stop. That isn't news. (But she says the video is "meant more to celebrate faith than it is to challenge it." [USA Today]

Did Bristol Palin have plastic surgery? That's the question du jour, apparently, after Palin showed up at the Candie's Foundation benefit gala this week not just slimmer but with a firmer jaw and a more pronounced chin. [People]

British brand Mulberry turns 40 this year and has come out with a luxe coffee-table book to celebrate. The photographs include ad campaigns, shows, models and celebrities, behind-the-scenes looks at Mulberry's Somerset factory, parties and products.

Now here's a website we've really been waiting for! Milk & Honey, launched this spring by sisters Illisa and Dorian Howard, allows you to design your own shoes. You can pick a style, color, heel height and embellishments. Right now, choices are a bit limited, but there are plans to expand, and we think this is an idea that has some kick to it. [StyleList]

LA Times :
Good time to remember what Bristol had to say about Kathy Griffin's forays into plastic surgery only a mere three months ago:

"It's weird that she would pick on my weight. She's had botched liposuction procedures and stuff like that," Palin said. "It's just weird that she would pick on something like that for another woman."

Care to ask her ?

Bristol Palin: "Being a teen mom is difficult."
"Tripp was born into a home that is a one parent home and it's difficult for him know I don't have a college education yet, I don't have a steady job, and it's difficult for all teen moms no matter what their background is."

She is a single mother because she CHOSE to be a single mother.

As for not having a steady job, how many young women were paid over $260,000 in 2009, were paid $345,000 by DWTS in 2010, has a book coming out this summer, and have a mother who is worth millions to fall back on if she blows all of her money on plastic surgery?

I know she is the daughter of a woman who raised her to be the perpetual victim, but this is getting ridiculous.

Bristol 'Chin Chin' Palin's Memoir due this Summer LOL
