Alexander Skarsgard is the face of Calvin Klein’s new fragrance Encounter. But in an interview about the fragrance and the shoot, Skarsgard had a different scent on the brain…sausages! An interview shows his true feelings on the matter…
Do you have a favorite scent? Well, I have one that’s pretty odd. I grew up in south Stockholm, and it used to be a working class neighborhood. It’s become trendy but not when I was growing up. There was this sausage factory a block away from my childhood apartment. It didn’t smell nice, like chorizo or something, it was pretty foul. Just nasty. But that smell reminds me so much of my childhood, because every morning when I was going to school I would smell that. So if I ever find myself near a sausage factory, I like it. It reminds me of my childhood.
Is there a scent that you hate?I don’t like those artificial air fresheners. They just smell so fake. It’s too much. I know that it’s weird to say that you don’t like the smell of those but like the smell of sausage.
Doesn’t this make you love ASkars so much more? Smelling Swedish sausages and finding nostalgia in it? Adorable!

Lady Gaga has revealed the title of her new album, in a picture with the word tattooed on her forearm. She tweeted, “new album, new ink”, showing the title “ARTPOP”.
“Make sure when writing about my new album/project ARTPOP that you CAPITALIZE the title,” she wrote. “*Its all in the details* good morning twitter!”
Gaga will release ARTPOP, her third album, early next year. She recently played a new song for a group of fans after getting ambushed in her car in NYC last month.
The singer is still touring in support of her last album, ‘Born This Way’, and starts off her European tour on August 14.
In other Gaga news, she will release her first fragrance ‘Fame’ later this month, and will make her movie debut in Robert Rodriguez’s ‘Machete Kills’ later this autumn.

New mom Jessica Simpson is busy taking care of her newborn daughter, Maxwell, but that isn’t stopping the star, who is set to marry fiancé Eric Johnson later this year, from returning to work — as a bridal gown designer!
In Touch has learned that the star has plans to start her own bridal line. “A wedding line is something she’s always wanted to do,” a source close to Jessica, 32, tells In Touch. “She is talented and knows what women want to wear.”
And Fashion Star stylist, Daniel Musto, can’t wait for Jess to reveal her new designs, admitting that whatever style Jessica chooses for her own upcoming nuptials will play a huge role in the new line. “If she does something that’s going to be memorable for decades,” says Daniel, “then certainly her wedding line is going to be successful because girls will want to mimic it!”
Plus, adds the source, Jessica can relate to “regular” girls, not just A-list Hollywood stars. “She has curves like every girl so women will buy those dresses up!”

Call me crazy, but someone over at Gucci gave Blake Lively a nose job! That is 100% NOT her real nose! Either Blake’s had a nose job, or someone gave her a photoshop nose job. Either way, that’s not the real deal.
Two weeks ago Blake Lively was given a major endorsement by Gucci to promote their new perfume, Gucci Premiere. Rumor has it she insisted on the director of ‘Drive’, Nicolas Winding Refn, to film the commercial for the perfume, which I can’t wait to see!
Blake already models for Chanel, and according to sources, was hand-picked by Karl Lagerfeld himself.
What do you think of her new ad?
Below are some new pictures of Blake leaving her hotel in NYC (with her REAL nose).

Kristen Stewart is the face of Balenciaga’s newest fragrance, ‘Florabatonica’, and now we have our first look at the beautiful ad!
In an interview with WWD, Stewart admitted she wasn’t sure how to pose for the ads. ”When I first stood there, I was like, ‘OK, do you want me to show the curves of the dress? Do you want me to stand like this? Like that?’ And they were like, ‘Just be comfortable.’”
Along with approving of the futuristic floral ad (shot by famed photographer Steven Meisel), she’s also 100 percent happy with the fragrance.
“There is something natural about it,” the On The Road actress explained. “It’s very alive. I think that as a young person wearing it — considering that I’ve never worn a scent — it kind of puts you on this level of, like, ‘Whoa, check me out.’”
The star also admitted that she was rather nervous to initially smell it. “I’m very lucky that I like the fragrance, because I would have done anything with [Balenciaga designer Nicolas Ghesquière],”she revealed. “And I’m a terrible liar.”
Florabotanica features notes of vetiver, amber and caladium-leaf accord, a (hybrid) rose, carnation and mint accord and is set to be released in September.
I can’t wait to smell the new fragrance! What do you think about the new ad?

Selena Gomez was at Macy’s in Herald Square over the weekend to promote her first namesake fragrance.
Hundreds of fans came out to support their idol, who signed bottles and posed for pictures. According to WWD, the personal appearance brought in about $40,000 in sales!
“The bottle was the hardest part,” said Gomez about her whimsical flacon, which sports a bouquet of floating violet lips, meant to reference her first album. “On red carpets I wear a lot of dresses and gowns so they [licensing company, ID Perfumes] made a bottle that represented a gown. The scent itself I feel definitely represents me. It’s really romantic, its youthful and warm, its not overbearing. I am proud of it. My fans got to help out and pick every single note with me. [My fans] are part of me.”
Gomez chatted a little about her current projects, which include acting, music and philanthropy.
“I finished three movies this year,” said the 19-year-old multiplatinum recording artist. “I wanted to do a little bit more acting this year so I was able to accomplish that which I’m really proud of. Each of these movies is a little bit older and different than anything I’ve done before so I’m excited about that new chapter. I’m going to start working on my fourth record at the end of this year so I’ll start back into music. This is the first year I haven’t released music which is weird. So I’m excited to back into that.”

Call me crazy, but does Kim Kardashian actually look good here!?
I absolutely love her dress here! Her makeup looks painted on with a large brush (as always) but I’m loving her outfit, and that doesn’t usually happen!
Here are some new pictures of Kanye West accompanying his girlfriend Kim Kardashian to the Fifi Awards in London. The Fifi Awards are awards given to fragrances (seriously). Kim’s fragrance “True Reflection” was up for Best Fragrance (can’t make this stuff up), but she lost out to Justin Bieber’s “Someday”.
