DVF To Put The “Soul” Back In Fragrance; Tinsley Gets A Makeunder; And More…


First DVF dropped the name of her forthcoming fragrance (Diane) on Twitter, and now the designer has taken to her blog to discuss the reasons behind her triumphant return to beauty: “In the last 10 years, the perfumes that have been created seem more like beautiful ideas but a bit soulless…I wanted to put the true power of a woman in a bottle!” If anyone can do it, she can. [Vogue U.K.]

Leighton Meester’s debut commercial as the face of Vera Wang’s new Lovestruck fragrance hit the Web today, and in case the rock reinterpretation of ESG’s “My Love for You” didn’t tip you off, the floral eau is meant for the young and hip. [Grazia]

Estée Lauder is the latest beauty giant to get into hot water over Photoshopping claims—although in an interesting turn of events, model Caroline Louise Forsling is suing the cosmetics giant for not digitally retouching her face. Forsling is alleging that the advertising visual that displays her smile lines and forehead wrinkles has “irreparably damaged” her career. [Daily Mail]

We’re still not quite over the untimely demise of Jane magazine, but its much-loved “Makeunder” feature has been resuscitated by former editor Jane Pratt on her new Web venture, First up? A typically overdone Tinsley Mortimer. [xoJane]

P. Diddy In Your Living Room, A Century Of Divadom, And More…


HSN has three words for naysayers who think you can’t sell perfume on TV: Sean Puffy Combs. The hip-hop mogul-turned-designer will be hawking his I Am King and Unforgivable fragrances on the home shopping channel come Monday. [WWD]

Worried about smile lines? Take solace in knowing that women in the 1920s and ’30s were just as concerned as we are today. [Newsweek]

Tinsley Mortimer is for the children. “We’re showing them how not to overdo it,” the Dior ambassador, who wears mascara with sweatpants, said at a recent event, where she encouraged good makeup habits with the tween set. How nice to see a socialite who’s not too busy to help shape America’s youth. [The Cut]

Do you hate your hair? Are you embarrassed by unsightly love handles or a muffin top? Go on TV and talk about it! Public humiliation is all the rage these days. [Reality Wanted]

J’Adore Dior, Ten Years And Counting


The beauty world finally got its turn to take over the Standard Hotel’s new Boom Boom Room last night when Dior pulled out all the stops to fête the tenth anniversary of its popular fruity-floral scent J’Adore. One of the brand’s most successful fragrance franchises to date, the bergamot, rose, and jasmine absolute perfume drew quite the crowd. Tall model types clad in white satin minidresses and bright red lipstick passed out hors d’oeuvres and cocktails to the likes of Tinsley Mortimer, Olivia Palermo, Lydia Hearst, Theodora Richards, and Coco Rocha while DJ, Dior Ambassador, and girl-about-town Harley Viera-Newton spun a combination of soul, hip-hop, and classic pop. In addition to the privilege of taking in a panoramic view of the city from 18 floors above the Meatpacking District, partygoers got to preview the limited-edition J’Adore flacon set to hit counters next month. The eau de parfum collector’s bottle features a glass pendant engraved with Christian Dior’s initials, which can be strung up on a chain and worn as a necklace. Just a little thank you from the House of Dior to all its devoted fans.

Tinsley Mortimer: Hipster At Heart?


At last night’s Cinema Society and Salvatore Ferragamo screening of Two Lovers in New York, socialite and Dior brand ambassador Tinsley Mortimer took a set of perfectly eye-grazing bangs for a spin. And we’d just like to say…yes. Yes to everything she’s doing. Her new look is younger and edgier, and in combination with that flashy hot pink nail polish, she’s got a whole “Single Ladies” vibe going on (thus fueling those persistent separation rumors). What say you: better with or without?
