Given these two facts, then, it's not surprising that this just-released image of the bottle looks like a mash-up of early Egyptian statuettes of the cat-headed goddess Bast and Eartha Kitt's original Catwoman costume. I like the curvilinear quality of the cat's head and the rhinestone eyes, although it's not exactly a step away from the total campiness of her ads. Does this bottle make you want to nose out Purr even more, or are you allergic to this much feline symbolism?
Lest you think we're just talking some boring perfume in a bottle or something, the Bieb's scent will be infused into faux dog tags and wristbands, and he's personally making sure that he likes the fragrance. "They actually brought me a bunch of stuff to smell today," he told WWD. "One of them smelled too young, too fruity. One was really good." No word on what the jewelry's notes will be, but if you're just dying to know how Justin's taste runs, he says, "I actually like the Britney Spears perfume on girls. It smells good."
BellaSugar: How did you design the outfits for the fragrance bottles?
Gwen Stefani: We never thought we would get this far with doing so many of the girls. We wanted to go back to the roots of being inspired by Harajuku, the actual place. [Looking at] the different styles of Harajuku girls, we went from there. Then a lot of the stuff is from real costumes.

Halle Berry showed off her toned legs yesterday in a short purple dress at a promotional event for her new scent, Reveal, in Hamburg, Germany, and today she was in a strapless number for another meet and greet in Warsaw, Poland. Her latest concoction is a follow-up to her first successful fragrance, Halle by Halle Berry, which won big at this year's Fifi Awards. Between her personal and work obligations, Halle's rapidly racking up flier miles. She just left France, where she joined her Dark Tide costar Olivier Martinez for a romantic stroll in Paris, and they also recently enjoyed a loved-up weekend in London.

Jordin says the scent isn't named for her fellow Idol's hit song, but instead came about because "my fans are the reason that I get to do any of this . . . [they] deserve a high-quality, reasonably priced scent." She chose the name, she says, to show how much she appreciates them. Because of You is certainly reasonably priced (it'll launch at $9.50 a bottle) and sounds like a young scent appropriate for Jordin's fans — it's described as a "fruity floriental" with notes of orange, currant, nectarine, orchid, peony, musk, vanilla, and an amber/woodsy base. Given how low its price point is, will you be interested in giving it a sniff?
