Lindsay Lohan is the new face of FCUK’s “Friction” fragrance

Lindsay Lohan is the new face of FCUK’s “Friction” fragrance campaign. (Why am I not surprised?)

Here’s what the company had to say:

Lindsay Lohan is no stranger when it comes to appearing in an ad campaign, so it’s no surprise FCUK chose an image of the actress from her infamous spread for Muse magazine for their new fragrance “Friction.” Modeling alongside male model Petey Wright, Lindsay was shot by fashion photographer Yu Tsai, the same photographer who shot her stunning nude spread for Playboy

fric-tion noun \’frik-­‐shen\

what better way to describe a fragrance that generates so much heat?

fcuk has once again shocked, amused and provoked buzz worthy chat with friction, the newest fragrance duo to join the bold and seductive fragrance dynasty. fcuk friction is an alluring blend of fresh citrus, sensual musk and warm woods – scents with addictive notes that pique all five senses and leave you begging for more…

Scratch & sniff? Gross. No thanks.

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.

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).
