Janelle Monae has become the latest face of CoverGirl. The Tightrope singer, 26, appears in the new campaign for the cosmetics company, which will debut in the September issue of U S Vogue this week.

She wears bright and bold red lipstick in the image, which marries her retro signature with an androgynous suit, shirt and skinny tie. Janelle said in a press release: “I believe it's time that women truly owned their superpowers and used their beauty and strength to change the world around them.”

Esi Eggleston Bracey, VP and general manager of the brand, called Janelle “a true force of energy”.

She added: “We're elated and can't wait to show the world another dimension of her artistic "superpowers" as a member of our CoverGirl family.” Last week singer Pink was also announced as a new face of CoverGirl, joining the likes of Taylor Swift, Sofia Vergara, Drew Barrymore, Ellen DeGeneres and Queen Latifah as one of the beauty brand's spokespeople.

Jackie Stallone brings trout pout to premiere of son's film

Hollywood is teeming with inflated egos. But Jackie Stallone's lips — which have taken on a character of their own — won hands down last Wednesday at the Los Angeles premiere of The Expendables 2.

The 90-year-old astrologer, along with her indefatigable pout, joined her son Sylvester at the Los Angeles premiere of his latest action movie.

Jackie's famously crooked grin, which her 66-year-old son has also inherited, appeared bigger than ever as she posed for photographs on the red carpet at the Grauman's Chinese Theatre.

Apparently her quest not to grow old gracefully has continued in earnest — and she appears to have had a fresh bout of collagen injections. Three-times-married Jackie, whose maiden name is Labofish, was dressed in an outfit you wouldn't catch your average 90-year-old grandmother in: it consisted of a short black skirt and plunging blouse, strung together by jewelled strips.

She completed her look with platform heels — adding some height to her diminutive stature — and wore green contact lenses, heavy eye make-up, including thick painted-on brows.

Jackie attended the event to support her son Sly, who was promoting his movie in Hollywood following the London premiere earlier last week.
