>BEAUTY AND BRAINS
Photographer Darren Tieste had shot plenty of celebs over the years, but when he set out to create The Beauty Book, he wasn’t sure how many would pose for it. Once stars heard that proceeds would go toward brain cancer research, though, dozens signed on—including Scarlett Johansson as cover girl. “A good half of the people have been personally affected” by the disease, says Tieste, who lost a friend to it in 2008. The book is available at thebeautybook.org.
