Fashion News Roundup: FDA Says There's Lead in Your Lipstick, Lara Stone Has Road Rage, and Kate Middleton Went to a Non-Alcoholic Bar

FDA Says Most Lipsticks Contain Lead: Just when you thought it was safe to add some pigment to your pout! The U.S. Food and Drug Administration conducted a study for the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, and found that of 400 lipsticks they tested, the majority contained low levels of lead. L'Oreal's "Color Sensational" Pink Petal lipstick had the most lead, containing 7.19 parts per million. Compare that with children's products sold in the U.S., which are not allowed to have more that 100 parts per million. But don't get too worried-- the FDA says the levels are so miniscule, there's really nothing to worry about. (HuffPost) Orlando Bloom Says Wife Miranda Kerr Makes Being Beautiful "Look Easy": He might not be spending Valentine's day with his supermodel spouse, but Orlando Bloom had no shortage of nice words for his wife Miranda Kerr. The actor told the folks at Australia's Kyle and Jackie O radio show that he is in awe of how quickly Kerr shed those post-baby pounds: "To have just had a baby and then got back up on to do that. I don't think it's easy for those girls. They make it look easy, but you know, it's a lot of work to look good." (Vogue UK) Huffpost Style Compares NYFW to Your High School Cafeteria:...and they might have a point. From seating politics, to an arbitrarily determined social hierarchy, Fashion Week is kind of like a chic flashback to our high school days. (HuffPost)

At Least Two Underage Models Walked in Last Night's Marc Jacobs Show: Marc Jacobs does what he wants, ya'll. The designer and CFDA board member cast two underage models, Thairine Garcia and Ondria Hardin, for his Fall 2012 show. The CFDA has asked designers to refrain from using models under the age of 16, but that doesn't seem to be a concern of Jacobs': "I do the show the way I think it should be and not the way somebody tells me it should be ... If [the models'] parents are willing to let them do a show, I don’t see any reason that it should be me who tells them that they can’t." {The Cut}

Lara Stone Hates London Traffic: Lara Stone just got her license, but instead of ripping down the streets of London, she's stuck crawling behind double-decker buses: "It’s hard not to get road rage in London because of those buses, they’re so big and red.
