Diane Kruger has just been signed as the new face of Chanel's skincare campaign. Kruger, 36, first posed for Chanel's Allure fragrance back in 1996, and has since fronted the brand's Paris-Biarritz handbag campaign, back in 2007. Welcome back to the fold, Diane. [HuffPo]
After dipping a toe in the water by launching a perfume, Swarovski is now going full-throttle with an entire beauty line. The collection is called Aura and includes predictably high-shine lipsticks, solid perfumes, and body shimmers and will be sold on HSN. [BellaSugar]
Poppy King, aka the Lipstick Queen, has just released her latest edition—a royal blue shade called Hey Sailor, not to be confused with MAC's bright red Hey Sailor color from last year. Also, when's Fleet Week? [The Cut]

An exhibit dedicated to David Bowie's style just opened up at the Victoria & Albert museum in London. But there's more to it than just fashion: Illamasqua created an accompanying series of Bowie makeup tutorials. You will need to make an appointment to get one of the looks, and the makeup is (of course) available for purchase—assuming you want to look like David Bowie on your own time. [Grazia]
