Foreo Makes a Push for the US, Brings on Competition for Clarisonic

Beauty company Foreo is about to take the United States by storm and give Clarisonic some competition stateside. The makers of the LUNA face cleansing brush ($199) have sold its products at Sephora.com and Foreo.com, but WWD is reporting that the Swedish company is setting up an American headquarters with manufacturing facilities in Las Vegas. This is the result of the company’s efforts to roll out its LUNA device across 1,500 locations around the country, including Neiman Marcus, Ulta, Barneys and Sephora after success in the European, Asian and Middle Eastern markets.

Unlike the popular Clarisonic brush, the Foreo device is shaped like a moon and doesn’t have a brush. Instead, the waterproof device is made from medical-grade silicone. The tiny stubs on the tip of the device pulsate 8,000 times a minute, plus the tool offers users multiple settings and is gentle enough to use twice a day, unlike other nylon-bristled cleansing brushes. The device is perfect for those with sensitive skin, requires a one-hour charge for nine months of usage and starts at $139 for the LUNA Mini, which is around the same price point for an entry-level Clarisonic device.

Blake Lively Is Pregnant

We hope that you’re buttering your morning English muffin with Brooklyn hand-churned butter in honor of Blake Lively. The actress and purveyor of pricey, handcrafted goods is expecting her first child with husband Ryan Reynolds

Blake announced her pregnancy in tandem with her website Preserve‘s announcement that it will be offering a range of products for expectant mothers. The site published a “Falling for Family” editorial, in which a group of floral print-clad pregnant women enjoy tea time outdoors. At the very end of the series of images picturing women sipping cider and munching on pound cake, we see a silhouette of Blake holding her baby bump. 

It comes as little surprise that Blake would be selling infant and maternity items now that she’s expecting — that seems to be the move for celebrity mothers. Just ask Jessica Simpson.

Congratulations to Blake and Ryan on their first child!

Confirmed! Maison Martin Margiela Hires John Galliano

John Galliano is back in the game. Following weeks of speculation, the designer has signed on the dotted line with Maison Martin Margiela, says WWD. He is expected to oversee ready-to-wear for men and women as well as couture.

This is Galliano’s first full-time post since being handed a pink slip at Christian Dior and his namesake label in 2011 after a racist rant at a Parisian cafe. In 2013, the 53-year-old creative dipped his toe back into the design pool when he landed a three-week residency at Oscar de la Renta. Rumors of a permanent position were whispered, but never confirmed by either party. Last month, the designer served as the creative director for L’Etoile and mentored four students at London’s Central Saint Martins.

Galliano’s official debut for Maison Martin Margiela will be Paris Haute Couture Week in January.

Lady Gaga Talks Her New Tattoo and That Meat Dress with Fans on Reddit

Lady Gaga has had a pretty eventful 24 hours. She stopped by a tattoo shop to get some new, slightly terrifying ink done and this morning, she hosted an ask me anything session on Reddit. While the singer managed to skip over hardball questions, like why she associates with alleged sexual predators R.Kelly and Terry Richardson, she did answer a few burning inquiries from her fans. And she did it in the most Gaga way possible. 

Here’s what we found out about the singer:

On her new tattoo:My favorite tattoo is the one I got last night in Hamburg, its [sic] the Monster Paw, the symbol of my fans as they have held their paws high in the crowd every night since we became a community. I cherish it for its meaning, the loyalty, devotion, and strength we share. I wanted it engraved on me forever, <3.”

The meaning behind that infamous meat dress: “But there was a message behind that dress. I wore it attending the VMA’S [sic] with gay discharged soldiers from the military to make a statement. When we die, the meat on our bones bears no sexuality, no difference. We should not discriminate against those willing to give their life to protect Americans. Because when our lives are taken, we are meat all the same.”

She was named after a fern: “Its [sic] pretty cool, especially since its [sic] it is a-sexual [sic] fern, there are 19 species contained within the genus. All sexless, judgeless, How cool. How I wish to be.”

She may be a born and bred New York East Coast liberal, but Gaga loves to play with guns, just like any down-home “real” American: “I also like to shoot beer cans off the porch in PA with my bf, off our camo 4-wheeler.”
