And to learn some truly touching statistics that I learned after visiting the hospital firsthand, just keep reading.

We've already seen a behind-the-scenes look at the making of Emma Watson's new ad for Lancôme Trésor Midnight Rose, and now the short film has just been released. In it, Emma looks like a sylph who has just stepped right out of a Jean-Luc Godard film in 1960 — and, on her way, stopped by a John Hughes movie in the 1980s to borrow clothes, a soundtrack, and mood lighting. It's a fun commercial, but are you charmed by its French New Wave film aesthetic?
There's no doubt that Kim Kardashian looked like a princess on her wedding day. After all, she did wear three different couture gowns and a sparkling diamond headpiece. But while most of her look (as well as the event) was over the top and glamorous, her makeup was surprisingly a little more subdued and romantic. Find out which Lancôme products her longtime makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic used after the jump.
If I could go back to my 21-year-old self, I'd say, "Self, you might want to have a little more poise like that Watson girl." For as you can see, Emma Watson is articulate, graceful, and altogether lovely in this making-of video for her forthcoming campaign for Lancôme's Trésor Midnight Rose fragrance. Filmed by Mario Testino in the luxurious Hotel Crillon in Paris, the spot shows Emma appearing elegant as ever. The fragrance goes on sale in September, just two months before the release of her next film, My Week With Marilyn.
The ASA ruled that both ads depicted the models (Julia Roberts for Lancôme and Christy Turlington for Maybelline) with skin altered in a way that the products could never actually achieve. But do you think airbrushing like this is really harmful? Refer to Julia Roberts's ad up top, and keep reading to see the banned Christy Turlington ad.
Kate Winslet dazzled in a dramatic Ralph Lauren gown yesterday at a Lancôme press conference in Beijing. China was Kate's latest international destination following her trip to Spain, where she was honored for her humanitarian work at Madrid's Yo Dona International Awards last month. Kate's trips around the globe are possible during a break from filming and promotional work, though work is about to get busy again. New images from Roman Polanski's Carnage are out ahead of the movie's Fall release. The drama, based on the popular play God of Carnage, hits theaters in November, and Kate will next star with Josh Brolin in the unconventional love story Labor Day.
If you're curious about what's inside the bag, there's mascara, face and hand creams, a blush, a lipstick, and a Juicy Tube. So if you were planning on restocking some of your Lancôme standbys, this would be an excellent time to hit the Saks makeup counter.
