We had included the week's fashion and beauty news on our culture round-up, but we think it deserves its own place. So every Tuesday, check our homepage to see the new launches that are getting bloggers buzzing!
Dita Von Teese launched her debut fragrance today in Liberty (May 1st from 10am -midday). According to her, the fragrance reflects all the different facets of her personality, 'glamorous, sophisticated, sexy, dark, and mysterious.' Shame you can't bottle that self-confidence of hers! Here she is proudly showing off her potion!
Opi has just unveiled its Minnie Mouse collection - a collection of four pinks called Nothing Mousie 'bout It, If You Moust, You Moust, The Colour Of Minnie and I'm All Ears. They'll be available online from the beginning of June. See picture below!
Bobbi Brown has just launched her Miami collection, inspired by her love of the beach. The range which includes a Shimmer Cheek Glow, Bronzing Powder, Beach fragrance and limited edition Shimmering Fragrance Oil are perfect for a healthy Californian glow.
Lock up your daughters! But only so you can have full use of the computer… Teen beauty website Blush 'n' Kiss has just gone live and it's fun for big girls too. We love mineral make-up brand Inika!
Just when you thought Rosie Huntington-Whiteley couldn't get any more prolific, the model has signed a deal with M&S to create her own exclusive lingerie range for their Autograph collection. Rosie Autograph launches in September and will comprise 33 pieces - think silk cami tops, teddies and French knickers. All sounds very sexy… the only snag may be the campaign, featuring Rosie in her slinky creations - intimidating is an understatement!
To mark the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, Selfridges is celebrating all things British this May with lots of fun collaborations spanning all departments. The campaign, called The Big British Bang will include everything from special edition Marmite to much-loved labels like Mulberry and Hunter . There will be lots of exclusives as well as a 'tea party' cafe on the rooftop!
If you are in Chelsea this coming weekend, head to the Shop at Bluebird where you'll be able to pick up some great finds from Cape Town lifestyle and fashion pop-up store, Merchants on Long, a kind of South African Anthropology. The beaded jewellery and ethnic prints are a change from the ubiquitous offerings of the high street.
