Summer is near us! And it’s time for trying something unusual and new. So, dear fashionistas, Beyoncé launched a new fragrance for Summer 2012. Previous year she presented her super-special blue scent, Pulse.
But this summer 2012, famous singer is in pink mood for styling. The star is launching a new perfume, breezily named Beyoncé Pulse Summer Edition, to “capture the essence of a playful, sun-drenched summer day,” according to a release.
The limited-edition perfume mixes notes of pear and jasmine. This aroma is also lighter, with extra fruity and floral notes like ginger orchid, pink pepper, Tunisian orange flowers, sapphire woods and it all inspired “by Beyoncé’s infectious and positive energy”.

Actress Emma Watson is modelling for ethical fashion brand People Tree for another season.
Fair Trade champions People Tree have just released pics of the Harry Potter starlet posing for the second collection of pieces that Emma has contributed to.
Already in stores, the range features everything from pretty dresses and slouchy T-shirts to cool checked shirts and chunky knits, all made, of course, from Fair Trade fabrics.
Emma hasn’t designed the collection but she has taken her role as collaborator very seriously. She even accompanied People Tree’s founder, Safia Minney, on a trip to Bangladesh where she got to see the difference between factories in the slums and the Fair Trade factories where the label makes its clothes. ‘Having seen the slums in Dhaka and the conditions in which these people live and work to produce ‘fast fashion’, I would say to those people that this is not the way we should be making clothes in the modern world,’ she said. ‘These workers have no rights and work every hour of the day just to feed their families. Fair Trade gives families the option to stay together, rather than one or both parents having to move to cities, and they are paid a fair wage. It empowers people and doesn’t take away their dignity.’
It’s not the only ethical clothing project that Emma is involved in – she’s also working on an organic clothing range with Alberta Ferretti which is set to make its debut in the coming months.
Eva Herzigova has become the second supermodel, after Natalia Vodianova, to create a ready-to-wear line primarily targeted at 40-something women for French label Etam.
The line is entitled Eva Herzigova Pour 1.2.3. The supermodel launched her designs in Paris April 8 and spoke about the range.
It has been totally hands-on, no one telling me what to do and designing whatever crossed my mind,” the model said yesterday as she launched her designs at the Crillon hotel in Paris. “Having done my own clothes from when I was young in the Czech Republic, I know how things are assembled and think of each detail. I am a perfectionist and I demand a lot, and I wanted something that is affordable but also luxurious.”
The line features dailywear styles, including jeans, trench coats and gypsy skirts, as well as long silk evening gown and tailoring.
Eva has also created accessories to complement the offering, with prices ranging from €69 to €225.
Eva is a real woman, always elegant, and will bring a bit more warmth to the brand,” Laurent Milchior, co-managing director of the Etam Group, told WWD. He added that a website would be launched in July to make the collection more accessible. “It will be similar to the Web site we launched for Natalia’s [Vodianova] lingerie line for Etam.”
Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana have an online magazine called Swide, which is of course yet another marketing device to sell their clothes.
Beading, bold patterns-men fashion spring 2010
They’ve taken to their blog to try to sell statement jackets, a key piece of their spring 2010 men’s collection. It’s a hard sell for most straight men, and we’re not sure this argument will be powerful enough to persuade them:
Who needs to bother with trophy girlfriends? Dolce & Gabbana’s SS10 array of great embellished jackets means you can forego the hassle of dating and make your blazer your best spokesperson.
… Light and chic or dark and interesting, you can be all sorts of men this season. Varying your pleasures: go for fail-safe baroque or conversational black and white. Getting lonely with your great jacket collection? Not a concern anyway, the trophy jacket is your best ally to find that trophy girlfriend!
Except that a guy who has a collection of jackets that are this … fussy is bound to be fussy about all kinds of stuff. Most chicks probably don’t want to date a guy who spends longer in the bathroom tweezing his eyebrows and putting on cheek highlighter than they do. And people with that much time on their hands just aren’t having that much sex.
