First look at Madonna’s ‘Truth or Dare by Madonna’ Fragrance

Here’s an exclusive exclusive first look at the ‘Truth or Dare by Madonna’ fragrance by Madonnarama!

Madonna will be featured in a global print, television, and online marketing campaign produced in collaboration with Fabien Baron, Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.

The print ads used for the campaign will feature photos from the Madonna photoshoot by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott for the 2010 May issue of Interview Magazine.

‘Truth or Dare by Madonna’ will include bracelets, earrings, sexy lingerie and a special Dom Pérignon champagne bottle with custom made packaging.

Press kits of the new ‘Truth or Dare by Madonna’ fragrance have been sent out as well.
Marie Claire’s Sergio Kletnoy, who has his own column on Daily Front Row, was one of the lucky and shared some exclusive pictures with Madonnarama.

The foreword is written by Madonna…

“There is something primal and mystical about the sense of smell. It connects us to memory, nostalgia and the ability to dream and fantasize.

I have always been obsessed by fragrance and for years wanted to create something personal that was an expression of me, but that other people could relate to as well. Something classical and timeless and yet modern.

My oldest memory of my mother is her perfume. I carry it with me everywhere. She always smelled like Gardenias and Tuberose. An intoxicating mixture. Feminine and mysterious.

I wanted to recreate this scent but with something fresh and new about it as well. Something honest and yet daring. Hence the name Truth or Dare.

We can be tricked by what we see and what we hear but not by what we smell.”

The press kit includes a vase of yellow waterlillies, a gold box, a blindfold designed by Kiki de Montparnasse, and a tiny vial of the scent.

Glee’s Naya Rivera Named New Proactiv Spokesperson

Even cheerleaders struggle with their skin.

Glee star Naya Rivera, who plays the fresh-faced (yet potty-mouthed) Santana Lopez on the hit TV show, recently revealed that she suffered from bad breakouts earlier this year, making it uncomfortable to be on camera each week.

The 24-year-old turned to Proactiv’s acne products to clear up her complexion, and now she’s the brand’s new spokesperson.
“The makeup artist on the set of Glee gave it to me and I kept it using it because I knew it worked for other people,” she says. “I really wanted to work with Proactiv because the products really helped me.”

She joins a star-studded lineup of current Proactiv celebrity customers-turned-spokespeople, including Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Avril Lavigne and Julianne Hough.

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).

First Look: Britney Spears engagement ring!

Britney Spears may be a pop-star diva to the rest of the world, but to beau Jason Trawick, “she’s his everyday princess,” says celebrity jeweler Neil Lane, who designed Spears’s dazzling engagement ring to befit Trawick’s vision of the singer’s down-home regality. “Jason is a romantic and when I asked him to tell me about Britney and what the ring would represent to them so I could find inspiration, his response was always the same — she is his princess!”

With that theme in mind, Lane tells PEOPLE he designed from scratch a tiara-motif sparkler with a round, perfect white diamond in a handmade platinum setting that “looks like a mini crown,” the celebrated jeweler says. He also added 90 small round diamonds around the eternity band. “Jason didn’t want an over-the-top ring with a giant stone,” he adds.

Over the last month, Lane and Trawick clocked phone and email minutes as they collaborated while Trawick was traveling with Spears on her global tour. “Texts came from all over the world, from Abu Dhabi, Mexico and I don’t know where else!” says Lane.

But when Trawick stopped into Lane’s Los Angeles store to pick up the ring — less than one week before the proposal! — they both knew the hard work and scheming had paid off. “Oh my god, he loved it,” Lane shares, adding that he could tell Trawick had pre-proposal jitters. “The guy was so excited and nervous. At the end of the day, even with all the fame, he’s still a normal guy who was about to propose to the woman he loves.”

That said, Lane believes this couple is in it for the long haul. “He’s deeply in love with her. Britney is his princess and he is her knight in shining armor,” he says. “Jason’s protective of her. He adores her. Every good fairytale needs a princess, and now Britney has a ring fit for a princess!”
