Every celebrity when they hit a certain popularity, it’s almost like a status symbol to have your own fragrance collection and a fragrance name after you. Most of them we’ve seen from Britney Spears “Fantasy” a sweet, princess-ish scent to Mariah Carrey’s “M by Mariah Carey” that has a butterfly as the bottle cap almost a little tacky! but I am impressed how lady gaga does her perfume, never-before-seen Black Eau De Parfum !

Simplistic design of oval black bottle with gold claw! and the short film to advertise the perfume was done in a black and white French Gothic futuristic Tron feeling horror film style. Hey, what did you really expect Lady gaga do anything in the normal way?

Here is one of the “Fashion Film” I am just in love with! A unique collaboration from a wealth of fashion creatives, “Portent” is a sensual, delicate and poetic exploration of romantic Classicism almost a little Gothic through the male and female form. This, Nick Knight’s latest fashion film, was specifically created to celebrate the introduction of women’s collections to thecorner.com, the online ‘department store’ launched by YOOX Group. Released in tandem with the collections’ appearance online, the film showcases an allegorical love-story expressed through Autumn/Winter 2009-10 fashion from a raft of the world’s finest designers, including Maison Martin Margiela, Haider Ackermann, Rick Owens and Viktor & Rolf. Here are some of the images from this fabulous film.
