FIRST LOOK! Madonna’s new fragrance ad!

Madonna’s much-anticipated debut on the celebrity fragrance scene is finally here!

In the new ad photo for the scent, Truth or Dare by Madonna, the star, 53, looks positively ageless with glam, retro waves, porcelain skin and sexy, dark lips.

“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 honest, and yet daring, hence the name Truth or Dare,” the “Gimme All Your Luvin” singer told Women’s Wear Daily in November.

The perfume has top notes of gardenia, tuberose and neroli with base notes of vanilla, amber and musk.

Although it officially goes on sale exclusively at Macys April 1, shoppers can secure their own bottle during a pre-sale for a limited time.

Sienna Miller Vogue UK Cover- April 2012


Expectant actress Sienna Miller, 30, graces the April cover of British Vogue magazine, looking refreshingly beautiful with her piercing blue eyes, pearly smile and long, blonde locks. In an accompanying interview, the A Case Of You star opens up about expecting her first child with partner Tom Sturridge, trying to keep the exciting news a well-kept Hollywood secret and her reaction to the landmark birthday of turning 30.

On her pregnancy: “I’m feeling fine. It’s all progressing nicely and it’s very exciting. It’s nice to start a new decade.”

On her reasoning behind wanting to keep her pregnancy under wraps: “I’m in my second trimester, so I’m I-can-talk-about-it pregnant, even though I’m under strict instructions not to say anything as it would completely defeat the point of everything I’ve tried to achieve in the last eight years.”

On turning 30 years old: “I didn’t have the freak-out which I thought I would have. But maybe it’s because I’m the youngest of all my friends – so that lessened the blow. It’s nice to start a new decade.”

For the full interview with Sienna, pick up the April issue of British Vogue magazine on newsstands March 12th.
