• Uma Thurman, face of Givenchy's upcoming fragrance Ange ou Démon le Secret, on whether she would star in a campaign ten years ago: “At the time, there weren’t a lot of actors doing endorsements or doing a creative commercial like this. It seemed very risky to the creative career. Times have changed; now all my colleagues have perfumes or stuff like that.” [WWD]
• Balenciaga is launching a fragrance in February. Designer Nicolas Ghesquière spearheaded the creative process. He was drawn to smells of "floor wax and flowers, such as violet and carnation, plus more urban odors, like gasoline." Charlotte Gainsbourg will star in the campaign, shot by Steven Meisel. [WWD]
• Taraji P. Henson appeared to have mistakenly forgotten to wipe excess powder from underneath her eyes before attending a red-carpet event this week. The powder (gasp!) didn't even match her skin color. [Spoiled Pretty]
• People with curly hair, like Taylor Swift, have an easier time making casual updos look effortless. [Girls in the Beauty Department/Glamour]
