FRAGRANCE
• Speculations arose today that Dior signed Sofia Coppola to direct a TV advertising campaign set to air this September. How glorious! But does this mean she's fashion cheating on Marc Jacobs? [WWD]

• Usher celebrated his Usher for Her fragrance last night, the follow-up scent to Usher for Him, which hits counters this September. It has a lingering note of peach and is described as feminine with a touch of innocence. We’d expect something raunchier from the “Love in This Club” singer, but perhaps he’s toning it down?

• Guerlain Homme, a men’s fragrance by Thierry Wasser, will hit stores this August, and claims to embody a “man’s dual nature: human and animal.” Rawr! [Cosmetic News]

MAKEUP
Chanel’s fall makeup collection is all about gold, like every other makeup collection this season. It’s the first from Peter Philips, Chanel's new global creative director, and hits counters this July. [Makeup Minute]

NAILS
• Nic’s Sticks Paint & Go by OPI are colors that you can carry around. They are supposedly fast-drying and mess-free so you can do your nails when you're, like, waiting for your late friend to show up at brunch tomorrow. Or something. [Makeup Bag]

SKIN
• Earlier we told you about FashionMeetsFinance, but it turns out beauty meets finance, too! Goldman Sachs is one of two companies who jointly bought H20+ skin-care line. [WWD]
