Rihanna Starts Making Scents!

Reb’l Fleur, Rihanna’s debut fragrance, will be available to the smelly public at large beginning Jan. 25.

The scent, incidentally, shares a name with a tattoo the pop superstar bears on her neck, though which came first is still up for debate.

As for the perfume, which came about thanks to a deal brokered by new manager Jay-Z, it’s being curiously described as “like heels with a short, flirty dress.” (The bottle itself is in the shape of a high heel.) So what does a short, flirty dress smell like? A fruity mix of red berries, plum, peach, coconut water, violet and Hawaiian hibiscus, in reflection of Rihanna’s tropical roots. Obviously.

Reb’l Fleur will first be available only at Macys (for $49 per pop of the pop star), going on to roll out internationally later this spring.

o Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara ($10; clinique.com)

Leaving it on overnight.

Amy Adams talks motherhood in InStyle: ‘I never felt more beautiful than when I was pregnant’

She previously insisted she is in no rush to lose her baby weight – but Amy Adams how now confessed that she felt at her most beautiful when she was pregnant.

The Oscar-nominated actress, who gave birth to her daughter Aviana eight months ago, told InStyle magazine that motherhood had changed her.

And she added that having a child had brought out her softer side, and made her more vulnerable.

‘I can’t say, ‘I don’t care,” she said of being a mother. ‘I can’t be tough. There’s no truth to it. I love her. I need her in my life. I can’t pretend otherwise.’

As well as the interview, the 36-year-old showed just how much weight she had lost in a series of stunning photographs, styled by the magazine’s senior fashion editor Natalie Hartley.

In the pictures, Amy poses in a series of fitted dresses and high heels, showing off an enviably slim figure.

But despite this, she confessed in the interview that she has yet to lose all of her baby weight – and also revealed how much she enjoyed the pregnancy.

‘I never felt more beautiful than when I was pregnant,’ Amy said. ‘Because it wasn’t about me.

‘The whole purpose of my body was no longer to fit into a sample size. It was to nurture another being. So I always felt great, no matter what I was wearing.’
