Choo on this! Fragrance isn’t Saab-ing this week!

This is a big week for fragrance with Jimmy Choo and Elie Saab both signing fragrance deals!

Jimmy Choo signed a 12-year fragrance licensing agreement with Inter Parfums effective January 1st.  Founder and president, Tamara Mellon, comments, “It has always been my vision to fully accessorize the woman, and fragrance is an integral part of the modern wardrobe.”   Feel free to dress me head to toe any day of the week!

Meanwhile, Elie Saab signed a 10-year fragrance (and cosmetic!) license agreement with Beauty Prestige International (BPI). “Creating a fragrance has become an essential step of the development of our couture house,” says Saab. “We have chosen BPI as a partner who is able to actualize our ambitions. We will create together a signature fragrance and an image that embody the DNA of our brand.”

I’m obsessed with Elie Saab, he makes some of the most beautiful clothing I have ever seen.  If this fragrance embodies any part of that man’s talent or ability to make a woman feel anything short of perfection, then sign me up!

What can I say that isn’t spelled out in the description?  You’re looking at a $25,000 customizable car cupcake.  I’m not sure if this is adorable or insane.  But at a wopping 7mph, if you don’t like the way they drive, get off the sidewalk.

Elizabeth Taylor, legendary actress and beauty icon, announced on her twitter yesterday, “Dear Friends, I would like to let you know before it gets in the papers that I am going into the hospital to have a procedure on my heart.  It’s very new and involves repairing my leaky valve using a clip device, without open heart surgery, so that my heart will function better.”

My thoughts and prayers are with you!

Bad Hair Day for Chris Rock’s Good Hair

After Chris Rock’s five year old daughter, Lola asked him “Daddy, how come I don’t have good hair”, the perplexed comedian set out on a journey around to world to document what black men and woman go through for beautiful hair. The result of Rock’s exploration into the multi-million dollar African American hair industry is birthed in Roadside Attractions and HBO Films’ Good Hair.  Co-written and produced by Rock the film will debut in theaters this Friday, October 9th.

Unfortunately, Rock is having a bad hair day.  According to Access Hollywood, Regina Kimbell is suing rock for copyright infringement, unfair competition and fraud (yikes!), claiming the documentary is very similar to her film, “My Nappy Roots: A Journey Through Black Hair-itage.” Kimbell is suing in the amount of at least $5 Million.
