Dita Von Teese has stepped away from the frilly and pink side and stepped into a darker, sexier version of herself. For her first fragrance, the burlesque star partnered with Liberty of London. She said of the scent, “I wanted it to be a perfume that smelled exactly how I imagined it. A scent needs to reflect all the different facets of my personality. It had to be elegant, glamorous, sophisticated, sexy, dark and mysterious.” And the bottle will reflect the perfume on the inside. Von Teese imagined one would find such a fragrance “in a black satin handbag of sophisticated women.” And there is a lovely tassel attached to the bottle for good measure.
All nineteen editors of Vogue have all officially decided to use healthy models in their magazines, a pact called the Health Initiative. Their goal is to ban the use of models under the age of sixteen or who may suffer from eating disorders. While the health of a model can be a little sticky with a few gray areas, the agreement was broken down into six rules stated in a press release from Condé Nast International ending with “we will be ambassadors for the message of healthy body image.” Hopefully this is a step in the right direction to keeping models and their revelers healthy.

Just in time for summer, the FDA has put into effect some important and necessary regulations for sunscreen. While the changes may sound a tad daunting, don’t worry, all you’ll need to do is find sun protection with certain label changes. Things to look for include the label reading “sunscreen” not “sunblock”, it needs to be “broad spectrum” (protects against UVA and UVB rays) and at least SPF 15, the words “water resistant” or “sweat resistant” and not “waterproof”, check the amount of time next to the water resistant label, and no sunscreen will be labeled higher than SPF 30. Protect yourselves and have fun in the sun!
