Natalie’s Motherhood Makeup Tips; Madonna Talks Making Perfume For The Masses; And More…

-------

Natalie Portman is fresh off a Parisian press junket, where she was logging some hours as a Dior ambassador. The actress was on hand to talk upcoming film projects, her new desire to “dress like a lady,” and how motherhood has changed her approach to beauty. “I think I’m much more aware of using clean products, you know, paraben-free and all of that, to make sure that everything I have around my child is OK to be eaten, basically, because that happens.” Could green-leaning Dior skincare be on the horizon?

Madonna turned up at Macy’s in Herald Square last night to launch her new fragrance, Truth or Dare, to the masses. While this is Madge’s first scent, she’s been working on its formula for over 15 years. “It’s the mass-producing part that always gets tricky, because for some reason the fragrances that I like tend to be really expensive,” the singer said. “One time I created a smell and I was told the amber, it was like a million dollars to ship from India or something. And then they tried to make [a] synthetic [version]. This happens a lot and it never smells as good as you want it to smell. Finally I got a smell I like that I can mass-produce. ” [CBS News]

After stunning guests at this year’s New Yorkers for Children gala on Tuesday night, Crystal Renn is finally speaking out about the reason behind her dramatic platinum blonde makeover. “I wanted to do something different. I wanted to show up as a different canvas at a shoot. It’s a very extreme look but very beautiful. Though it’s nothing conventional. I’m not trying to conform…I look up to someone like Tilda Swinton. She’s the fashion icon. She experiments and that keeps life fun.” [People]

The inspiration behind Selena Gomez’ forthcoming fragrance? Mary-Kate and Ashley, of course. “I’ve always wanted to [create my own fragrance] since [they] had their little body sprays…I loved those and was obsessed with them.” [Us]
