Jennifer Anistonchose an interesting, shall we say, campaign for her new fragrance, Lolavie. To summarise: she's naked, on a cold grey rock, alone, looking scared. This, mind you, is a woman perpetually slammed by the tabloids for being...alone. But Jen does have a one-up on Kimora Lee Simmons ads, since at least she seems to use her own body in the campaign.
Lolavia should make Aniston a ton of money - and good for her - but we say if she comes out with another perfume (and don't we need more celebrity fragrances...), she shouldn't picture herself stranded somewhere. Until then, we'll just focus on the actress' perpetually great hair and forget the rest.
"This scent is meant to be a call to action", Kimora Lee Simmons says when talking to WWD about her latest fragrance, Dare Me. "I am challenging everyone to be bold, inspired and intelligent". When Kimora says everyone, she means it, too. Her latest perfume is more accessible than her previous ventures - with a travel size bottle at just $12, and a full ounce at $28.
We can't help but notice, however, that despite Simmons saying the "message with this fragrance is empowerment and self-reliance", the difference between the advertisement for the new scent and the real Kimora shows either a great deal of retouching or an impressively quick weight loss. The scent is available from Walgreens, Target and Kohl's stores - and if it makes that kind of a transformation, maybe it is worth the measly $12 investment?
If America’s Next Top Model’s previous seasons have put you off the show entirely with what some have described as “cruel and unusual” judges, then don’t despair. We have news that will suck you right back in. Contrary to what we suspected, American Vogue’s Editor-at-Large, André Leon Talley, is serving on the judging panel full-time.
Tyra Banks is currently filming the next season in New Zealand, and the local press – who have been “stalking them like an endangered species”, according to New Zealand’s Cassius blog – have confirmed Tally as on the panel, but Kimora Lee Simmons, model and Creative Director of Phat Fashions, who judged on the show’s first season, as merely a guest judge.
Let’s hope that “10 reasons why ‘America's Next Top Model’ is bad for women, humans,” list doesn’t unearth itself this time around. But with Talley, a front-row regular for over 25 years, on every episode, you definitely have a reason to give this season a chance, well, the last twenty minutes of each episode at least.
