Yesterday, Leighton Meester partied on across to pond to launch the Vera Wang‘s new fragrance – Lovestruck – in Harrods. Obviously, she wore Vera Wang for the occassion. Her Pre-Fall 2011 leather pants were the perfect addition to a rose-coloured, pleated blouse from Vera’s Fall/Winter 2001 collection. To compliment the outfit, she wore Brian Atwood‘s “Rina” sandals and Dannijo jewels. You see the ball leaving the park?
Leighton Meester didn’t look like she felt the winter weather so many of us are suffering while red-carpetting at the LA premiere for her new film “Country Strong“. The Gossip Girl got frocktastic in a Christian Dior floral minidress which she paired with a fuschia and orange Pierre Hardy ankle-strap wedges. The expected glamour was injected with a dash of gold Cathy Waterman accessories.
Additionally, we can share some Waldorf woohoos as a little birdy has informed me she has been asked to be the new face of Missoni. She can add this accomplishment to her campaign for Vera Wang‘s new fragrance that will also be released next year. It’s comforting to see such a promising young star has the potential to leave such a cult character as Blair Waldorf and stay on top of the industry (yes, it has been confirmed she is leaving in two years).
Final notes? Leighton Meester > Taylor Swift. See Meester’s video for “Summer Girl” below. View Post
Eva Longoria is the BFF of Victoria Beckham. The Miley to her Mandy. The Princess Sparkles to her Share Bear. (Enough.) Naturally, she did what every best friend does and promoted her Posh pal’s fashion label by wearing one of her dresses to the London launch of her new fragrance – “Eva” – last night.
Because she couldn’t be there, Beckham tweeted that her fabulous friend looked fabulous in her dress:

Okay. Matthew McConaughey is gorgeous. Dolce and Gabanna decided to go with that for the ad for their new fragrance “The One Gentleman“…and…well…destroy it. He looks a) plastic, b) anorexic, c) like he has a Gumby neck, and d) like a painted killer from “Clue“.
Martin Scorsese‘s commercial for Chanel‘s new men’s fragrance, Bleu de Chanel, has been on my must-see list for months. The short was released today, and it features all the grit and energy that the legendary director has become famous for.
As your expected Scorsese stoy goes, a rebellious young actor played by Frenchman Gaspard Ulliel (of “Hannibal Rising”) refuses to conform to expectations, and falls in love with a woman who fuels his work though passion and turmoil. All that’s missing is the famous Copacabana Nightclub sequence from “Good Fellas” along with much of his signature violence, though kind of tough to help sell cologne.
Scorsese’s Bleu de Chanel commercial is the latest example of the fashion world getting famous names to direct their commercials, or “short films” as the companies have begun calling them. Gucci recently released a preview of the 3-D ad for their new fragrance Gucci Guilty starring Evan Rachel Wood and directed by Frank Miller of “Sin City” fame. The full “film” will make its debut at the MTV Video Music Awards on September 12th.
