#1 Trish McEvoy Black Rose Oud

A truly unique fragrance it wears all day and I find the scent gets better as the day goes on. Black Rose Oud is one of those scents you can’t get enough of and everyone will want to know what you are wearing. It is on the spendy side, but it’s worth every penny definitely my all time favorite luxury fragrance.

A heart of prized Black Baccara Rose and precious Oud oils surrounded by vibrant florals, exotic spices and sensual woods—Trish’s captivating marriage of the raw with the cultivated, the familiar and the far-away creates a provocative feeling of déjà vu.

DIY Gel Manicure

InStyle Try This at Home: Jennifer Hudson’s DIY Gel Manicure!

Everyone seems to be trying gel manicures lately, and now you don’t even have to go to the salon to get the long-lasting look. Take a cue from Jennifer Hudson, who used the DIY Gel Manicure Kit for a set of shellacked fawn nails before taking the stage VH1 Divas Celebrate Soul show in New York this week. “Jennifer was really excited to try out the kit,” her manicurist Elle Gerstein tells InStyle.com exclusively. Gerstein used the Red Carpet Manicure “It’s Not a Taupe” LED Gel Polish with the Pro Kit, which comes with a professional-strength LED light to deliver salon-perfect results at home. “The manicure lasts about two weeks and dries immediately, so she didn’t have to worry about chipping her nails during the show.” Pick up the kit for $80 at redcarpetmanicure.com.

Emily Blunt on her YSL Opium Campaign: “They made a terrible, terrible mistake”

Emily Blunt landed herself one of fashions hottest campaigns, and she’s incredibly humble about the honor.

When she was recently asked why she was chosen as the face of YSL’s Opium fragrance, Blunt told The Telegraph:

‘I don’t know. I’ve no idea,’ she says, wheezing with laughter. ‘There was no one else? They made a mistake, a terrible mistake.’

She says she suggested wearing a dress in the advert rather than the classic Yves Saint Laurent tux. ‘But I got word back, ’ she continues in a perfect French accent, ‘that the leopard trainer says, “If you have flowing fabric around the leopard the leopard will go crazy .” So I said yes to the tux. ’

The ad, which you can watch above, is interesting to me. I think that Emily is very beautiful, don’t get me wrong. But she’s a comedy actress, so it’s hard to see her being seductive. I kept waiting for her to do a flip – and make me laugh…. or something. It looks like it’s on the verge of being something funny (to me).
