Michael Kors called his new Very Hollywood fragrance the “most glamorous, indulgent scent we’ve ever done” in a recent WWD interview, and as it hits shelves this month, we’re beginning to see why. The designer has apparently pulled out all the stops for the opulent white-floral scent, which is intended to evoke the diamonds and flashbulbs that come standard with celebrity status. To wit, the perfume’s flacon was fashioned to resemble old-fashioned camera lights, and its campaign follows Kors’ favorite model duo, Carmen Kass and Noah Mills, as they walk the red carpet to a Lady Gaga backtrack. And there’s more! In addition to your standard eau de parfum spray, the collection features a gilded ballpoint pen with scented ink and a pink-jeweled cocktail ring that houses a solid perfume, so you can take the wet jasmine, ylang-ylang, gardenia, and creamy amber notes with you wherever you go. To celebrate Fashion’s Night Out—and his grand olfactory achievement—Kors will simulate the paparazzi frenzy from his print ads at Macy’s in Herald Square tomorrow night at 7 p.m., where he and actress Debra Messing will be posing for photos with fans. It’ll be life imitating art imitating life. Yet another reason to get out and shop!
Former Baywatch star and current animal rights activist Pamela Anderson will launch a fragrance and bodycare line in November. The brand will reportedly be “everything that Pam Anderson is known for” and is thusly called Malibu, a reference to her place of residence and beach-beauty lifestyle. That whole hep C incident will likely not be used for inspiration. [Cosmetic News]
To celebrate the 35th anniversary of Hello Kitty, Lady Gaga has posed in a series of images shot by photographers Markus Klinko and Indrani in which she is dressed as the fabulous feline herself. The latest picture to surface, which will be part of an exhibition in NYC and L.A. in October, features the “disco stick” singer with pink highlights, a glossy pink pout, and huge, anime-style doll eyes that were actually painted over her own peepers for authenticity. Me-ow. [Perez Hilton]
Researchers at the University of Leicester and Institute for Molecular and Cellular Biology in Portugal have found that in addition to being numero uno antioxidant, a new form of vitamin C can help remove the DNA damage free radicals may cause should they get past your skin cells’ defenses. You can teach an old vitamin new tricks, after all. [Science Daily]
Tyra Banks is launching an online magazine called Tyra: Beauty Inside & Out to coincide with the premiere of the 13th season of America’s Next Top Model tonight. It will include an audio component that tells readers to “dream big” and “seek the beauty in everything,” not to mention providing a “real” and “raw” connection to Tyra that you just can’t get with her in-your-face talk show. Be afraid. [The Cut]
What: Happy birthday, Lippmann Collection! To celebrate the tenth anniversary of her brand next month, nail polish expert Deborah Lippmann is giving away $50 gift certificates to every tenth customer who makes an online purchase.
When: Today and today only!
Why: In addition to the chance to win a gift certificate, you can scope out DL’s new, limited-edition collection of Glitz and Glamour shades. (Apparently Lady Gaga is already a fan of Ruby Red Slippers.)
Spotted in Tokyo over the weekend in yet another pants-less ensemble, Lady Gaga took her locks to new lengths rocking a long, wavy wig with pastel pink and purple streaks. Studded cuffs, metallic fingernails, and ultra-long lashes provided the perfect accessories to her Rapunzel look. While we commend her willingness to experiment, as always, we kind of prefer the choppy bobs. You?
Seeing as how we like to stay in the know as to what’s going on in the international world of beauty and fashion, we stumbled across some images from the Miss Universe Japan 2009 National Costume Press Preview in Tokyo yesterday. Why pageant winner Emiri Miyasaka is holding that goblin mask in her hand remains unclear, although it’s what’s going on due north of said ghoulish accessory that really caught our eye—i.e., her hair-covered button hat. Somewhat similar to the one Lady Gaga debuted last month in Manchester, it leads us to believe that the pop phenom’s influence has reached beyond the Paris Couture shows to inspire a whole generation of would-be pants-shunners in the Far East. Button hair hats for fall, anyone?
