Your morning fashion and beauty report: 'It's my job,' says World's Most Beautiful Woman Jennifer Lopez

April 14, 2011 |  9:37 am

-- Jennifer Lopez, World's Most Beautiful Woman on People's annual list, is indeed gorgeous, and she looks fresh and natural on the cover of the magazine. But, ladies, don't think it's as easy as it looks. Her cover shoot for the magazine involved makeup artist Mary Mitchell, hairstylist Lorenzo Martin and foundation, peach blush, brown eyeliner, powder, shimmery shadow, lip liner, lipstick, gloss, a curling iron, styling serum -- you know, the works. [People]

-- Lopez is upfront about the place of beauty in her life. "It's part of my job," she says. And we say, well done! [People]  

-- But watch out! Jennifer reveals she paints her son's toenails too. Maybe she won't get into as much trouble as J. Crew's Jenna Lyons did for a similar motherly "offense," as our Deborah Netburn reported. Then again, she uses blue paint, not the pink Lyons' son wants. [The Cut] 

-- Cinderella's glass slippers had nothing on the gold-and-diamond shoes created by British jewelry designer Christopher Michael Shellis. Conceived of as "jewelry for the feet," each pair was created by a team of goldsmiths and is made from more than 2,200 diamonds, totaling 30 carats. Only problem? So far no one has wanted to buy them at the listed price of 140,000 British pounds. That's about $228,400 at today's exchange rates. [Telegraph] 

-- First Prada and Moncler and now Salvatore Ferragamo plans to issue stock, with an IPO planned on the Italian Stock Exchange. [WWD]  

-- German apparel firm Hugo Boss is set to be the lead sponsor of the United States Pavilion at the Biennale in Venice, opening on June 4. Boss has been involved with the arts and art museums around the world for years. [WWD]  

-- Katy Perry rocks classic hairstyles from the '50s, ''70s and '80s in her new "Eras of Style" ad campaign for Ghd hairstyling tools with the seeming ease of a chameleon. Just like J. Lo above we're sure she had lots of behind-the-scenes help getting ready for the shoot with photographer David LaChapelle. But Perry was perfect for the campaign, says Ghd Chief Executive Paul Stoneham, because of her own personal style. She "completely embodies Ghd's spirit of female transformation and empowerment," he said. [StyleList]
