Katy Perry Perfume at Selfridges

Katy Perry is a media darling. She's now launching a celebrity endorsed fragrance called 'Purr'. The launch is in partnership with Selfridges out of London, England.

It seems that just about every celeb has a fragrance (or two or three in some cases). Some, like Perry, also have nail polish lines. Given Katy Perry's funky style sense, the OPI nailpolish sponsorship seems a bit more on target than this fragrance. But... there are plenty of Katy fans in the world and many will want to smell like their pop queen this holiday season.

Perry also performed this month at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in New York. Expect to see LOTS more of Katy Perry in the new year.

Dakota Fanning and Henry Aleck

People Magazine recently reported that Dakota Fanning was once again named Homecoming Queen at her local high school. She also donned the Queen's crown last year.

Shocker - it turns out that being a Hollywood celebrity and member of the Twilight cast helps in the popularity game! Gotta wonder what would have happened if Ashley Greene and Kristen Stewart were also in the running.

Here's the People Magazine article.

Now let's take a moment to think about Henry Aleck. Mr. Homecoming King is a lucky guy - these are his 5 minutes of fame. Smile for the camera and dance with Dakota Fanning. Awesome.

OK, back to Dakota. She wore her hair in straightened tresses with a center part and silver tiara crown. She even wore the homecoming sash and carried a dozen red roses. Thumbs up, age appropriate, and fun.

Angelina Jolie French Twist

Actress Angelina Jolie promoted her movie "Salt" pretty heavily this year. In the above photo, she was smiling for the cameras at the Japan premiere. The event was held at the Tokyo International Forum in July.

Angeline Jolie paired her green dangle earrings with a high updo. This style is a version of the classic French twist. The French Twist is one of the most elegant updo hairstyles available. A French Twist is styled by pulling your hair into a low ponytail and then twisting until the hair buckles against the back of your head. You can then hold the twist in place with a comb or hair pin. For more on the French Twist, see our How To blog post.

Kate Beckinsale's Formal Hairstyle

Actress Kate Beckinsale was spotted out and about with her daughter Lily Mo Sheen while walking their dogs in Santa Monica, CA. Check out Kate's hairstyle - it's stunning. Aside from celebrities, who in the world has time to style their hair like this just to take your dog out for a walk!

Kate's beautiful updo seems more suited for the red carpet or a formal dance. She pulled her hair up in the back, with volume in front. Love the curls and waves too!

Kate's first big hit was Pearl Harbor in 2001. Since then, she was cast in Underworld in 2003, The Aviator in 2004, and Van Helsing in 2004. In 2008, she earned a Critic's Choice Award nomination for her performance in Nothing But the Truth.

Heidi Klum's Bob Hairstyle

Earlier this year, German supermodel Heidi Klum cut her blonde hair into a medium-length bob. She styled the bob with face-framing fringe.

When asked about the new hairstyle, Heidi Klum explained to Tonight Show host Jay Leno, "I got bored as we all do once in a while as girls. Whenever I get bored I change it. I grow it then cut it, grow it then cut it."

"For some people they never change it and it works for them but for me I get bored."

If you're Heidi Klum, you look good in just about any hairstyle, so why not!

Jennifer Lopez's Beehive Hairstyle

In the above photo, Jennifer Lopez rocked a beehive hairstyle. This is a very daring updo - not for the light of heart. Only a true diva like J-Lo can pull off a look like this one.

J-Lo wore a black Lanvin dress with black satin pumps. She paired the dress with an intricate bib necklace. Lopez was promoting The Back-Up Plan at the film's UK premiere.

We'll all be seeing a lot more of Jennifer Lopez next year. Reports first circulated in mid-2010 that Lopez would join the judging panel of American Idol. About 6 weeks ago those rumors were confirmed and the AI team officially confirmed that Lopez will be a judge in 2011.

French Twist How To

The French Twist is one of the most elegant updo hairstyles available. A French Twist is styled by pulling your hair into a low ponytail and then twisting until the hair buckles against the back of your head. You can then hold the twist in place with a comb or hair pin.

The French Twist can be worn as a formal updo by pulling the twist tightly and securing the hair with a jeweled or otherwise formal hair accessory. It can also be worn more casually with a looser twist and plastic clips or everyday hair pins.

Many websites offer French Twist how to videos, including VideoJug and eHow. Below is one French Twist How To Video from Youtube:

Robert Pattinson Kristen Stewart Kissing

Fans the world over have been dying for Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart to just come out an admit that they're dating (true or not, might not matter at this point). Pattinson and Stewart smolder with chemistry in the Twilight movies. Off screen, they often travel together when promoting the films.

In the above photo, Kristen Stewart is seen passionately kissing Robert Pattinson. But don't get too excite... this photo was taken during the filming of their honeymoon scene for 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn".

Kristen Stewart wears her hair down and in a wavy layered style for most the the Twilight films. We prefer this hairstyle to the one she wore while filming The Runaways.

Kristen Stewart refuses to talk about her personal love life during interviews. She's been asked many many times, but has never confirmed or denied a romantic relationship with her co-star R-Pat.

Despite her long filmography, Kristen Stewart is still a young woman with a ton of potential beyond acting. She's considering college. Stewart recently told the press; "I want to go to college for literature. I want to be a writer. I mean, I love what I do, but it's not all I want to do, be a professional liar for the rest of my life."

Kourtney Kardashian's New Urban Fashion

Kourtney Kardashian was in New York City this week, looking fab as always. Check out her head-to-toe glamor and new urban fashion.

Kourtney K wore a lush fur jacket over a little white dress. She carried a leather clutch and donned a classic fedora. KK finished off the outfit with a pair of brown riding boots - these came up to just under the knee.

This was a perfect look for a day of shopping and hanging out with friends, that is if you're a reality TV star and one of the Kardashians!

Natalie Morales' Updo Hairstyle

Actress Natalie Morales attended the premiere of "Going The Distance" earlier this summer. The movie premiere was held at Grauman's Chinese Theatre on August 23rd in the heart of Los Angeles.

Natalie was on trend in terms of hairstyles - and showed off a loose bun. She left wispy locks, combed off to the side. Natalie accented the look with a pair of gemstone hoop earrings. A nice touch!

Natalie Morales replaced Meredith Vieira on the Today show. She speaks both Spanish and Portuguese.
