Gwen Expands Her Empire With Harajuku Lovers

harajuku+ad Gwen Expands Her Empire With Harajuku Lovers
This Fall, Gwen Stefani will debut Harajuku Lovers, a collection of five new fragrances. The perfumes will be bottled in “dolls” designed by Stefani, based on herself and her backup dancers, The Harajuku Girls – Love, Angel, Music and Baby.

harajuku+bottles Gwen Expands Her Empire With Harajuku LoversLove is a sensuous floral with notes of bergamot, pink pomelo, peach, bamboo leaf mist, watery peony, living hydroponic lace rose, jasmine sambac, nectarine blossom, creamy paperwhites, Egyptian jasmine, ylang ylang, vanilla orchid, musk and blond wood.

Lil’ Angel is a fruity floral with notes of raspberry, cranberry, blackberry, pineapple, pear blossom, candied violet, sugared rose, lollipop accord, hinoki wood and crystal amber.

Music is a delicate floral with notes of clementine, sparkling pear, jasmine sambac, sweet pea, honeysuckle, vanilla, skin musk and sleek woods.

Baby is a powdery musk with notes of freesia, bergamot, white rose, orange flower, tiare flower, jasmine petals, white musk, soft woods, heliotrope, vanilla and violet.

G is a modern gourmand with notes of mandarin, fresh coconut, apple skin, jasmine sambac, freesia, magnolia vapor, coconut cream, white sandalwood and cottonwoods.

harajukugirlsandgwen Gwen Expands Her Empire With Harajuku Lovers“I didn’t think this project would actually come to life,” Stefani said. “The idea that Coty would let me do five different fragrances for Harajuku Lovers was a fantasy. But it really had to be five, because that’s what the world is. Each girl has her own personality and sense of style. We’re all saying something different with unique personalities.”

Though her new fragrances haven’t yet been released, Gwen is already thinking about the future, and how she will continue to build her empire.

“I would love to have a full L.A.M.B. beauty line one day,” she told WWD. “It makes sense. I’ve always loved doing my hair and makeup and getting all dressed up. When I have a party or an event to go to, getting ready is just as much fun as actually going out.”

In the U.S., the collection will be sold in some department and specialty stores, including Macy’s, Nordstrom, Dillard’s and Sephora. The lineup will also be sold in 17 international markets, including Japan, the U.K., France, Australia, Germany and China.

Harajuku Lovers will hit stores in September, and each scent will be available in two sizes: $45 for 30 ml. and $25 for 10 ml. A coffret, which includes solid perfume versions of all five, will be on counter later this fall as a permanent addition to the collection, and will retail for $60. “They’re value-priced to encourage multiple purchases,” said Catherine Walsh, senior vice president of American Fragrances for Coty Prestige.

Fabulosity

Fabulosity (n): a state of everything that is fabulous.

fab Fabulosity
Kimora Lee Simmons, entrepreneur extraordinaire, has turned her catchphrase into her newest money maker. Fabulosity – her third fragrance – is a fruity Oriental mix of Forbidden Fruit, Orange Blossom, Tiger Lily, Coconut Milk, Damask Black Plum, Chinese Osmanthus, White Patchouli, Tasmanian Honey, Amber, and Vanilla Absolute.

Damn, Kimora!

“Yes, I’m over the top, and yes, I’m unapologetic, and yes, I have really big diamonds, but I have an equally big heart and an equally big spirit,” she says.

I’m a sucker for pretty packaging, so it’s no wonder that I’m obsessed with the diamond-shaped bottle – which, if it were real, would equate to 3,000 carats.

The Fabulosity collection includes:
1.7oz Eau de Parfum, $45
3.4 oz Eau de Parfum, $55,
6 oz. Body Soufflé, $30
5.2 oz. Bath Diamonds (bath salts), $30

Available now at Macys.

Richie’s favorite product from the collection is the Beauty Powder in Alpha Girl, while Traver prefers the Hollywood Nights Lipstick.

Speaking Of Heatherette

traver kimk richie Speaking Of Heatherette
I was just perusing People.com and came across this photo of the duo behind Heatherette. Richie is stylin’ and Traver is profilin’.

And here’s something you don’t see too often – Kim Kardashian without a heavy-handed application of eyeliner. Richie’s got on more makeup than Kim. I’m really liking her lighter look – that nude lipcolor is the perfect shade for her skin.

Gwynnie’s New Do

gwyneth Gwynnie’s New Do
Yesterday, Gwyneth Paltrow showed off a shorter do at the Prince’s Trust Celebrate Success Awards in London. I don’t know about you, but I’m digging Gwynnie’s new look. The long/stick straight/middle part look was getting a little tired. I think this style softens her up a bit. In fact, it’s a little Cate Blanchett-esque.

What do you think of Mrs. Martin’s new do?

Vanity Fair Hollywood Issue 2008

vfair Vanity Fair Hollywood Issue 2008
I know I’m a little late with this, but have you seen the March 2008 issue of Vanity Fair? This year’s Hollywood Issue features Tinseltown’s “Fresh Faces:” Emily Blunt, Amy Adams, Jessica Biel, Anne Hathaway, Alice Braga, Ellen Page, Zoë Saldana, Elizabeth Banks, Ginnifer Goodwin, and America Ferrera.

To be fair, all of them look fierce. And how could you not, with Annie Leibovitz’ camera fixed on you? But I have to say that Emily is looking flawless. And it’s also nice to see Ellen Page dressed up in something other than a basic black dress.

Cate Blanchett’s Skincare Essentials

cateblanchett Cate Blanchett’s Skincare Essentials
Cate Blanchett, SK-II global ambassador, carefully selected her favorite products for the line’s new Spring offering – aptly named Cate’s Essentials Collection.

cate%27s essentials collection Cate Blanchett’s Skincare EssentialsCate was introduced to SK-II by a friend seven years ago and noticed instantly a profound difference in her skin. She says, “Throughout my career, I have only accepted roles that I am passionate about, and my partnership with SK-II is no different. I truly believe I already played this role as an ambassador long before SK-II caught up with me.”

Each product in Cate’s Essentials Collection is designed to aid the skin’s natural 28-day renewal process, improving and rebalancing the skin’s surface and promoting a healthy, radiant glow. It includes:

Facial Treatment Essence – The heart of the SK-II ritual, literally drenches your skin with over 90% pure Pitera, raising skin moisture levels and stimulating the renewal of the skin’s outer layer, improving texture and clarity.

Facial Treatment Repair C – This Pitera rich serum is highly effective in moisturizing and enriching the skin – reducing the appearance of fine lines while improving overall skin texture and elasticity.

Facial Treatment Mask – These wonderful rich cotton masks provide the most intense Pitera experience – Giving the entire face a moisturizing boost, leaving the skin feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

Of SK-II, the actress has said, “It’s not part of my skincare ritual. It is my skincare ritual.”

Cate’s Essentials Collection retails for $250 and launches this month, exclusively at Saks Fifth Avenue – with extended rollout beginning in April.

Lush Lower Lashes

courteneycox Lush Lower Lashes
To lash out like the lovely Courteney Cox, InStyle.com recommends wiggling a waterproof, no-flake mascara wand along the roots of lower lashes, then tapping each lash while holding the wand vertically. Wait two minutes, then gently curl lashes with a Sephora Lower Lash Curler.

lashblast waterproof mascara 1 Lush Lower LashesWhich mascara to use? CoverGirl LashBlast, my hands-down new favorite mascara, is now available in a waterproof formula! Lash Blast supersizes and volumizes, with no clumps. I love how it makes me look like “that girl” – you know the one with the ridiculously fab lashes? Yeah, well…that’s me now.

Here’s another lower lash tip: Last month, I had an opportunity to learn some tricks of the trade from CoverGirl celebrity makeup artist, Molly R. Stern. She said that if you wear a slightly lighter shade of mascara on your lower lashes than on your upper lashes (i.e. – very black on top, black on bottom), your wide-eyed look will look more natural. And at $8 a pop, you can afford to splurge and buy two tubes.

Cover Girl Lash Blast Mascara is available at your local drugstore.
