What's Hot Now
If you’re trying to spot Adele in London, look for the lady in the PJs. “I walked through Trafalgar Square on a Saturday afternoon — tourist haven — in pajamas,” the Grammy winner tells Matt Lauer in the upcoming NBC Adele Live in London special.
Even more shocking? The songstress was wearing color. “I’m always in black,” she says. “It was this tracksuit, with a massive green coat and little pink pumps. I had this massive umbrella so no one recognized me.”
The superstar says a few onlookers did do a double-take, but no one approached her. “A couple looked around, but they were like, ‘No … she’s in color and what would she be doing walking around a packed Trafalgar Square on Saturday in pajamas?’” she jokes.
“We decided to color Adele’s hair a honey-colored blonde as it suited her complexion and really brought out the color of her eyes,” she explains. “It was important to elect a color with plenty of depth to complement the bouncy voluminous styles that she favors.”
Lino Carbosiero, the salon’s creative director, was responsible for those Veronica Lake waves. “We made Adele’s hair shoulder-length and cut a long layer through the back so as to give her a bit of swing and some natural movement,” he explains. “We wanted to create an old classic with a modern twist.” Tell us: What do you think of the look?
Chris Martin is a lucky man! The Coldplay rocker’s leading ladies — collaborator Rihanna and wife Gwyneth Paltrow — paused for a hot shot for Paltrow’s WhoSay page Sunday night while backstage at the Grammy Awards, showing off their slim figures and similar, slinky gowns. Rihanna worked the room in custom Giorgio Armani (she’s currently a face of the designer’s denim and underwear lines), while Paltrow wowed in a long black number with a solid gold belt.

Interestingly, Kate’s younger sister Pippa came in second in the vote, run by U.K. drugstore Superdrug; both girls were hailed for their fresh makeup and glossy hair. U.K. X Factor judge Cheryl Cole was third on the list.
Though the poll ran in England, many American celebs made the top 20, too, including Beyoncé (seventh place), Katy Perry (ninth), Lady Gaga (12th) and Angelina Jolie (18th). Emma Watson and Adele were among the other British-bred honorees. (See the complete list at the Daily Mail.)
“Everyone in the list has a distinct look, whether it’s natural beauty, full octane glamour or a love of beauty trend-hopping,” Superdrug director of beauty Sara Wolverson told the Daily Mail, adding that four of the top five vote-getters happened to be brunettes.
