If Brad Pitt wants me to douse my body in Chanel No. 5, then I will - even if he barely makes sense.

The world's most iconic women's fragrance kicked off its latest advertising campaign last month with a 31-second commercial featuring a gray templed Pitt mumbling nonsense. This just in time for the holidays campaign marks the first time a woman's fragrance makes a man the focal point. Pitt may be a little goofy, but his vote of confidence is news we can use.

I started thinking about all the Hollywood hotties I know who could sell women's fragrances.

Whether President Barack Obama or Republican challenger Mitt Romney claims victory Tuesday night let's just hope little Quinn Ferra of Sacramento, Calif - who has the best election outfit I've seen so far - has a wonderful, bright future.

She accompanied her dad, Scott, to the polls Tuesday morning.

Talk about fashion forward!

The body-skimming cobalt blue rubber dress singer Katy Perry performed in at President Barack Obama's Milwaukee rally Saturday afternoon was phenomenal.  It was perfectly - I mean perfectly - molded to the singer's 28-year-old flawless body. But the best part was how Obama's slogan, "forward" snaked down the right side of the dress. Slick!

Oh, and the sparkling high-heeled Mary Janes she wore - perfectamundo!

Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas graces the cover Essence magazine's December issue. The gold medal around her neck beams; a reminder of Gabby's amazing athletic strength. She's rocking  the heck out a strapless little black dress (It's Notte by Marchesa for those that must have it.) Her  teeny tiny waist is wrapped in a glittering gold bow. And her hair is flawless, but it's supposed to be - she's in glamazon mode.

I think Gabby looks great: So glam. So phenomenal. So beautiful.

And more importantly highlighting Gabby on the magazine's annual Women of the Year issue helps bring home the message that a healthy lifestyle is real beauty.

Word on the blogosphere is actress Angelina Jolie picked L'Wren Scott to design her wedding gown. 

The Daily Mail reported Thursday morning Jolie, who will be marrying Brad Pitt of course, chose Scott because the designer "understands her body most."

What would possess Chris Brown to dress up as a member of the Taliban for Halloween? Is it me, or is this just in completely poor taste?  Hasn't he already done enough to scare women? I just don't get it. Thoughts?

About this blog

I’m a Libra so I’m all about pretty things. We of the scales sign know what we like, and our standards are high.

So I can’t help but love fashion – one day I will get that Diane von Furstenberg wrap and those Christian Louboutin shoes.

And fragrances? My favorite right now is Chanel Mademoiselle. As for makeup, can we say MAC?

So let’s thank the Greek goddess of beauty, Aphrodite, that a true fashionista can find everything she needs right here in Philly.

I’ve covered fashion here for six years, and I have traveled to New York, Los Angeles and Paris to write about local and national designers. Let me tell you, there is no place where people wear midnight Eagles green or Phillies red with such wild abandon as they do on the west side of the Ben Franklin Bridge.

Sound familiar? This blog is for you.
