This week saw the premiere of Megan Fox’s new commercial for Armani Beauty and now Taylor Momsen’s video short for John Galliano’s new fragrance is making the rounds. Yes, the raccoon eyes and over-the-knee leather boots are still present, but the angst-y teen star’s complexion seems to have an uncharacteristic, dare we say, natural glow. If you look closely, she even cracks a few smiles for the camera. [E!]

butter LONDON Creative Director Nonie Creme has tons of pull with Alexander Wang and Victoria Beckham—both of whom she works with during fashion week. But there’s one person with whom the nail guru cannot make peace with polish: Naomi Campbell. “I had a hilarious time at a Julian Macdonald show wrestling with [Naomi] over her long acrylic nails, and whether they should be short and red like the designer had requested. The answer ended up being ‘No!” Creme reveals in a recent interview. Why are we not surprised? [Vogue Australia]
Disco queens, rejoice: As a natural follow-up to the relaunch of the iconic fashion brand, Halston the fragrance hits shelves this month. A contemporary adaptation of the original scent released in the 1970′s, the new Halston Woman was created by IFF’s Carlos Benaim, who just so happens to have spent his formative years training with Bernard Chant, the nose behind the première eau. Benaim’s interpretation features a feminine, floral update on Chant’s rich, woodsy juice using a rose bouquet and hints of marigold and jasmine petals to soften the fragrance’s first wafts. But its signature sensuality has gone unchanged, wrought with base notes of patchouli, sandalwood, and amber. Jewelry designer Elsa Peretti’s sculptural flacon also remains, although it’s been coated in a warm platinum finish to “reflect the fluidity of Halston’s fashions,” says the press release. Fittingly, to illustrate the seamless relationship between the brand’s fashion and beauty endeavors, Halston’s newly anointed creative director, Marios Schwab, will show a 2010 collection called Pure Metallic that is directly inspired by the perfume, reports WWD. In the meantime, grab your best slinky one-sleeved number and get in line at Neiman Marcus or Bergdorf Goodman, where the fragrance will make its exclusive stateside debut.
