Did Miley Cyrus get a hair makeover?


Breaking hair news: Miley Cyrus may have gone brunette during her trip to Paris.

A video posted to YouTube yesterday shows the 20-year-old Cyrus sporting what appears to be a much darker hair color — a toned down look compared to the bottle blonde she’s recently been rocking — as she stops to greet waiting fans in the City of Light. Though it’s unclear when the video was shot, the clip is titled  “Miley Cyrus en Paris (Cabello marrón),” which translates to “Miley Cyrus in Paris (brown hair).”

Watch the video after the jump and tell us: What do you think of Miley’s dye job?  READ FULL STORY

'Face Off' exit Q&A: 'Have we reached the bottom of the barrel?'

Last night’s episode of Face Off was a real mother.

Introducing the Spotlight Challenge, host McKenzie Westmore instructed the group to create a Mother Nature goddess whose look incorporated a feature in honor of each contestant’s own mother. Appearing as a guest mentor, last season’s champion Anthony Kosar advised the artists to focus on “soft, subtle, and elegant” looks that emphasized “feminine features.”

After seeking further inspiration from a botanical garden, the eleven remaining contestants went straight to work. Though season two’s Miranda Jory — who was on a winning streak — said she was “inspired by my mother every single challenge,” this wasn’t her week. Instead, season three’s Laura Tyler was declared the winner for what judge Glenn Hetrick called “cool, interesting sculptural decisions that were complimented by a beautiful and intricate paint job.”

Meanwhile, season two’s Robert “RJ” Haddy and newbies Scott Ramp and Eddie Holecko found themselves on the chopping block. While judge Ve Neill told Holecko that his warrior goddess lacked femininity, it was ultimately Haddy for turning in a character that Neill called a “total failure.”

Read on to see what Haddy had to say about being back on the show, what he would have done differently, and what he’s been working on since filming wrapped.  READ FULL STORY

See the 'Dancing with the Stars' make-up line

Is there a celebrity, film, or TV show that isn’t tied to a fashion or beauty brand these days? On the heels of yesterday’s announcement that Snooki, Valerie Harper, Elizabeth Berkley, and Amber Riley are among the new season’s contestants came news that the Dancing with the Stars make-up collection has arrived.

The Stila + Dancing with the Stars line includes “Live. Love. Dance” make-up palettes in shade combos like Samba (pastels), Tango (metallic bronzes), Freestyle (smokey greys), and Cha-Cha (shimmery hues). Each set includes a blush, seven eye shadow colors, a beauty balm, an eye liner, and a lipstick. According to the brand, the collaboration is a natural fit because Stila products are used by the Dancing with the Stars make-up team.


'Face Off' exit interview Q&A: 'I have nightmares about it.'

On this week’s episode of Face Off, there were no teams for the Spotlight Challenge. While the veterans seemed stoked, the newbies were a tad nervous about working solo.

After host McKenzie Westmore introduced the group to their guest judge, sculptor and concept artist Jordu Schell (300, Avatar) she explained that the challenge would be creating a subterranean creature that once inhabited underground tunnels. Before getting started, the contestants sought inspiration in an abandoned power plant. Once the competition got underway, some buckled under the pressure and others thrived. In the end, season 2 vet Miranda Jory won her third challenge, while season 3 vet Roy Wooley and newcomers Scott Ramp and Aldolfo Barreto Rivera wound up at the bottom of the pack.

Ultimately, it was Rivera — whose creation “didn’t read subterranean” according to the judges — who was sent home. EW spoke with 32-year-old Rivera about Jory’s winning streak, what he would have done differently, and what he’s been working on since he was eliminated.

'Face Off' exit Q&A: 'We obviously missed the whimsical part.'

There was no goofing off on this week’s episode of Face Off, just goosing off. But first, contestants were greeted by special effects make-up artist Glenn Hetrick (The X-Files, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) who informed them that the Foundation Challenge was inspired by the Insidious horror films. The group had just two hours to design their own original female demon using male models.

Insidious: Chapter 2 director James Wan appeared (via satellite) to reveal that the winner would attend the film’s red carpet premiere. While Roy came out on top, Rick was a close second with his monochromatic geisha.

From there, host McKenzie Westmore announced that artists would compete in pairs for the Spotlight Challenge. Each team was tasked with creating a contemporary character based on the tales of Mother Goose. Naturally, there was a catch — while the contestants were allowed to pick their own partners, both members of the losing challenge would fall victim to a double elimination.

The process was relatively drama free, as each pair seemed to work well together. With their Peter, Pumpkin Eater‘s wife-inspired creature Miranda Jory (season two) and Tate Steinsiek (season one) won the challenge. Sadly for Rick Prince (a newbie) and Eric Zapata (of season four), the judges felt their Crooked Man design lacked a whimsical feel and was too eerie. In the end, the duo was sent packing.

EW spoke with both Prince & Zapata about working together, what they would have done differently in their joint challenge, and what they’ve been working on since filming wrapped.


'Face Off' exit Q&A: 'The vets were a lot more cutthroat.'

They did the Monster Mash! On last week’s episode of Face Off, contestants were tasked with creating futuristic versions of Frankenstein’s famous monster and his bride. Original backstories were a must, and the winning design landed a spot at Universal Studios’ annual Halloween Horror Nights event.

The biggest challenge of the challenge? Each team of three included newbies and veterans.

Some contestants fared well. Season three vets Alana Schiro and Laura Tyler and newcomer Laney Parkhurst earned the judges’ praise their original concept, a monster reawakened by a bolt of lightning and a bride who acted as his battery. Alana was singled out for her exceptional facial sculpture and was declared the challenge winner. Although season two’s Miranda Jury and newbies Eddie Holecko and Sam Allen had conflicting concepts, they were eventually able to compromise, but Sam’s aesthetic inconsistencies disappointed the judges and put her on the chopping block.

EW spoke with Allen about butting heads with Miranda, what went wrong in the challenge, and what she’s been working on since filming wrapped.


R.I.P. 'Rachel Zoe Project,' welcome manicure competition show 'Nailed It'

When one closet door closes, the claws come out…

After five seasons, The Rachel Zoe Project has finally come to an end. “We’ve done five years. I think it’s time to probably move on,” Zoe tells Capitol File Magazine for its September cover story. “The Rachel Zoe Project was meant to be a show solely based on fashion and designers and all of that, and clearly it wasn’t. I was like, ‘Oh, I don’t want my personal life on television.'” Bravo has yet to officially confirm that the series has been cancelled, and there’s no word yet on the fate of Zoe’s former assistant Brad Goreski’s show It’s A Brad, Brad World.

Meanwhile, it was announced today that Oxygen will develop a new competition show called Nailed It!, which focuses on the ever-popular nail art industry.  READ FULL STORY
