Weekly beauty agenda: who is the fairest of them all?
Friday 20 August 2010
The upcoming Miss Universe pageant is already causing excitement due to its edgy host, extravagant costume choices - Miss Australia, Jesinta Campbell plans to wear Ugg boots and a gypsy skirt on stage, while Rima Fakih, Lebanese-born Miss USA, will compete in giant eagle wings, produced by the maker of the famous Victoria's Secret runway outfits - and racy photo campaign.

Las Vegas, US
US rocker and reality star Bret Michaels will host Donald Trump's beauty pageant in Sin City that will see more than 80 women compete for the crown.
Following the success of her first fragrance, Heat, singer Beyoncé will release the spicier flanker, Beyoncé Heat Ultimate Elixir, next month.
Fellow singer, Céline Dion is planning to introduce a new perfume called Pure Brilliance.
Conveniently timed for release in the same year as her World Cup performances, S by Shakira will go on sale in September.
In prestige fragrances, French luxe label, Chloé will launch the face powder-inspired Love, Chloé, while Christian Dior has created a more floral version of Hypnotic Poison, called Hypnotic Poison Eau Sensuelle. Its Italian competitor, Fendi has also announced a new scent to be released in the same month: Fan di Fendi is aimed at "free, sensual, joyous, and electrifying" women.
Vera Wang is the queen of the wedding dress, so it makes sense that her new fragrance is called Anniversary, described as "bright and lush."
Looking for something a bit more affordable? Lingerie brand, Victoria's Secret will release its latest fragrance, Bombshell.
Men will also be able to sample new scents come fall: Dolce & Gabbana's The One Gentleman, Van Cleef & Arpel's Midnight in Paris for men, and Bulgari's new men's fragrance are both slated for a September release.
