FIRST LOOK: Scarlett Johansson for Dolce & Gabbana’s New Fragrance

rose_the_one.bmprose_the_one1.bmp

To debut their luxe cosmetics brand, The Makeup, Dolce & Gabbana would settle for nothing less than one of Hollywood’s modern muses. And when it came time to launch their new scent Rose The One, they turned again to Scarlett Johansson. The actress couldn’t be happier with the appropriately rose-hued results, which were shot by Jean Baptiste Mondino, explaining in a statement that Mondino and designers “capture all of a woman’s graces, our quiet moments. That to me, is what makes this campaign so special, and it feel wonderful to have been a part of the collaboration.” The floral fragrance, which is the final launch in The One trilogy of scents for the Italian designers, will debut next month with prices starting at $60 for a 30 ml eau de parfum spray.

VIP Common concert!

In partnership with Macy’s, Diesel Only The Brave is giving you the opportunity to celebrate bravery with Common, the face of the brand’s courageous fragrance, at a intimate live performance at Capitale on Wednesday, August 26th, 2009.

You have until Monday August 24th to stop into Macy’s in Herald Square and other select locations, purchase $117.50 or more of Only The Brave products and receive TWO tickets to this VIP live performance.

The GRAMMY-winning hip-hop artist’s performance, including the song “The 6th Sense,” embodies the spirit of determination and perseverance. This private concert for Common’s friends and celebrity fans will capture the essence of empowerment, a sense that the performer depicts throughout his work, from his music to his community outreach.

“I’ve always thought Diesel was a progressive, fresh brand—it has a classic feel, but pushes the envelope,” Common explains. “I wanted to partner with Diesel because that’s really what I’m about too—to be an individual and an artist, it takes both bravery and courage.”

How To Enter To Win: Beginning August 10th, 2009, visit Macy’s Herald Square, Rego Park, Kings Plaza, Garden State Plaza and Cross Country to be one of the first 500 consumers to make a Diesel Only The Brave purchase of $117.50 or more

The beauty editors at O Magazine have listed the hot new fragrances for fall, including Marc Jacobs new Lola  (read Jocelyn’s review on Lola here).  I love all the fall products coming out, so exciting!

From left to right:

  • On a chilly, gray fall morning, you can slip into a hot summer day with Benefit Laugh With Me Lee Lee ($36; Sephora.com), a sunny, citrus-drenched scent of sugared lemonade and blackberry pie (there is the slightest hint of flaky crust).
  • A Scent by Issey Miyake ($89; department stores) is like clean, clear air blown over fields of snow and ice, carrying the scent of frozen crystals and a fresh balsam tree.
  • American Beauty Beloved Red Rose ($40; Kohls.com) invokes a breeze that has picked up the green notes of grassy meadows and passed through a hedge of young roses, just opening in May.
  • Lola Marc Jacobs ($65; Bloomingdales.com) explodes with vivid fruit. Each one seems lit up. Wearing Lola is like walking through Times Square and smelling the thousands of purple, orange, and lemon gas-plasma lights.
