• 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]

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]

• 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]

• 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]
