Jessica Simpson launches a new fragrance, inspired by her daughter, Maxwell!

Jessica Simpson stepped out over the weekend to take her daughter, Maxwell, for a walk. She Tweeted this picture, and said “Just taking a walk around the block… Street legal???”

Is that a pedometer between her tatta’s?

According to several sources, Jessica is majorly stressing over her multi-million contract with Weight Watchers to lose 50 pounds.

With the constant attention on Simpson’s body, it’s no surprise she’s reportedly stressed about trying to lose a rumored 50 pounds in just five months.

“She’s so emotional. She doesn’t want to leave her baby. Sometimes she just starts crying. It’s hard for her,” a friend of Simpson’s told In Touch of the multiple trips to the gym in recent weeks.

Simpson can at least take comfort in knowing she’s not alone on the journey back to the body she once had. Fellow new mommy Hilary Duff is also taking a healthy approach to weight loss, telling Us Weekly, “I’m working hard and I’m doing everything I can to lose the weight the right way.”

I think it’s great she’s working hard to lose 50 pounds, but that can’t possibly be all she gained. I would venture to say she
gained closer to 100 pounds. She looked like she almost doubled in size during her pregnancy.

Not that there’s anything WRONG with that. If anyone can lose the weight, it’s going to be Jessica. She’s never had a problem losing weight in the past (from what we’ve seen).

In other Jessica news, she has just launched her NEW fragrance, inspired after her daughter!

With baby Maxwell in her life, Jessica Simpson has a whole new outlook on life.

“Maxwell has changed the way I think about everything,” the new mom tells PEOPLE. “I have been loving everything floral and feminine. Even Maxwell’s nursery has vintage floral wallpaper. And there is nothing better than her natural scent! If only I could bottle that up.”

Sadly, she can’t make that happen, but she has released a new fragrance, Vintage Bloom, “a sheer scent with the freshness of citrus,” she explains. “It is extremely clean and natural.”

A departure from her most recent perfume, I Fancy You — the fourth and final fragrance in her Fancy Collection — Vintage Bloom features notes of lemon, lime and raspberry, underscored by floral accord, peony, cotton musk and Indian sandalwood.

“I’ve been wearing it all the time,” Simpson says. “It’s my favorite fragrance right now. It reminds me of summer and smells very feminine.”

Packaged in a vintage-inspired bottle modeled after a flacon from Simpson’s personal collection, the scent was “a bit of a departure,” she says. “It came about in a time in my life when everything was feeling very organic and new. Everything felt like a beginning, and that’s how this scent smells to me.”

Find Vintage Bloom ($49-$65; body lotion $30) at Macy’s stores and macys.com.

Sofia Vergara’s smoking hot Spanish Vanity Fair cover!

Sofia Vergara, who stars on ABC’s ‘Modern Family’, looks stunning in the new Spanish issue of Vanity Fair.

The 39-year-old actress wore a strapless red suit, while holding a cigarette in her right hand.

I think Sofia always looks stunning in print. Her voice drives me absolutely insane. Everytime I see her live – she gets less and less sexy. I know a lot of you would disagree, many think her accent is cute. It’s just way too whiny for me!

But here – she looks stunning! I love her hair shorter like this!


Anne Hathaway on the Catwoman suit: “It was a psychological terrorist”

Anne Hathaway is Allure Magazine’s July cover girl! The ‘Batman: The Dark Knight Rises’ actress shows her famous dimples, and long brown hair for the cover. (Shortly after this shoot, she buzzed her hair off to play Fatine in ‘Les Miserables’.

In the issue, Anne opens up about both roles, and the physical changes she underwent for them. She opened up about what it took for her to wear the Catwoman suit, how she’s dropping weight for ‘Les Miserables’, and how she’s comfortable getting nude on film. Here’s more!

On wearing the Catwoman suit:

Hathaway says that becoming worthy of the Catwoman suit for the upcoming Batman film, The Dark Knight Rises, permanently changed her relationship with her body. “It was a psychological terrorist,” she says. “The suit, thoughts of my suit, changing my life so I would fit into that suit…. It dominated my year.” She added, “I didn’t understand how you could be thin and strong. I went into the gym for ten months and didn’t come out.”

On being told to undergo plastic surgery:

Despite her obvious star potential early on, Hathaway was constantly subjected to suggestions for remodeling. “Someone wanted to gift me Lasik surgery,” said the near-sighted actress. And she was told to get Botox at 23. “I was like, ‘Can we maybe discuss heavy creams first?’” Not to say that she’s adamantly opposed to any kind of intervention. “But I reserve the right to figure that out until after I’ve pushed out a bunch of babies.”

On getting nude on film:

It was clear early on that Hathaway was both fearless and sophisticated in knowing what she could pull off and what she couldn’t. Nudity? Fine. Even today, as an A-list actress, she’s surprisingly unbothered by it. “I’m as vain as the next girl,” she says, “but I think it’s my job to show people as they live, and nudity is part of life.”

On turning down the lead in ‘Knocked Up’:

At the same time, she’s passed on roles with scenes she just couldn’t wrap her mind around. Example: Hathaway turned down the role Katherine Heigl took in Knocked Up because of an explicit birth scene. “My issue with it was that having not experienced motherhood myself, I didn’t know how I was gonna feel on the other side about giving birth. And by the way,” she adds, laughing, “I could pop a kid out and think, Oh, well, I really should have done that movie.”

On her fiance, Adam Shulman, and having children:

Hathaway is engaged to her boyfriend of three years, Adam Shulman, an actor turned jewelry designer. While family is very much on her mind as her next step, she isn’t sure how many children she’ll have. “But I’ll start with one healthy one,” she says.

On her vegan diet:

She is hoping, too, that she will be able to maintain her vegan regimen. She describes the diet changes as a “transformation.” Not that she doesn’t have her moments: “I mean, cheese is amazing,” she says. “[But] once you’re over the cheese hump, there’s really nothing left.”

On Anne’s friend Kate Lee doing her makeup during the shoot:

When she arrived on the set, Hathaway and her close friend, makeup artist Kate Lee, shown here, jumped up and down and screamed when they saw each other. For the cover shot, Lee created eyes that were “more Liz Taylor than Sophia Loren.” First, she drew a thin black line from the outer edge of the lashes inward. “It’s not your stereotypical ’50s swoop,” Lee said. She swept medium brown powder under Hathaway’s cheekbones and blended a creamy nude luminizer on top. As a final step, Lee used a liner in the same shade as Hathaway’s lips to enhance their shape.

On styling Anne’s hair for the shoot:

Hairstylist Serge Normant (shown below) wanted to give Hathaway a “polished bedroom texture” for the cover. After spritzing on volumizing spray, he blow-dried her hair with a medium-size boar-bristle brush. He blasted a little dry shampoo on the roots to pump them up and smoothed dry oil on the ends for shine.
