Olivia Wilde opens up about divorce, dating, and what her mother taught her about beauty!

Olivia Wilde graces the June cover of Glamour magazine, and I think she looks amazing! Olivia will be seen next in ‘Cowboys vs. Aliens’ opposite Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford.

The ‘House M.D.’ opens up about her divorce from Tao Ruspoli, whom she married when she was 18, and getting back into the dating scene.

“The mark of a good marriage is partnership and continuing to feel inspired by your spouse,” she tells the magazine. “I had that with Tao. But the end is not necessarily the tragedy. Staying in a relationship that is no longer working is the tragedy. Living unhappily—that’s the tragedy.”

What does she think of getting married so young? “Everyone said it to me—and I had to figure it out for myself—but you change so much. I’ve learned it’s important to spend time in a relationship with yourself and not being defined by your partner.”

She was rumored to have dated Justin Timberlake (after his split from Jessica Biel) and Ryan Gosling recently. With that said, she says she’s not a player. “I wish I could play the field. But it’s so not me. I go 100 percent into everything. And I’m a really good girlfriend.”

“I’m opening up my heart to the idea of dating. It’s funny—my friends would always come to me for romantic advice, [but] I know nothing, and things have changed since I was dating in high school! I’m really trying hard to spend this time working on myself.”

Her mom taught her a thing or two about beauty. Of her mother, she said,  “She’s gorgeous and she taught me that a real feminist doesn’t apologize for her beauty. You can be a sexy, beautiful woman and be the smartest person in the room.”

Kate Middleton’s wedding perfume revealed!

According to Clarence House, the Duchess of Cambridge chose White Gardenia Petals by Illuminum, a small British brand, on her wedding day.

Naturally, sales of the previously little known scent have gone through the roof with shoppers clamoring to smell just a little bit like the newest member of the Royal Family. When the olfactory press release was announced the scent immediately sold out and there is a two week waiting list.

“There has been a phenomenal response across the world,” said Illuminum spokesman Michael Donovan. “Orders have come in from dozens of different countries, but most of our customers have come from the U.S. It’s charming to think that so many people abroad are interested in the wedding.”
According to Illuminum’s website the scent which sells for 70 pounds has notes of, “coconut, jasmine and amber wood,” and is as, “fragrant as a vase of white flowers quivering in the breeze by an open window, this is a delicate and nuanced scent.”

The company which is relatively new was founded in 2007 by former celebrity hairdresser Michael Boadi who used to style the tresses of Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell.
