Fictitious Fragrance Fan: Stephanie Seymour In The ‘November Rain’ Video

Welcome to  BBJ series, Fictitious Fragrance Fans. Fragrance is one of the most difficult areas of beauty to discuss and I find myself trying to convey a scent to you, more often than not, by the pop culture character it embodies to me. So why not make it a thing?

What’s On Victoria’s Secret Angel Miranda Kerr’s Vanity ?

The What’s On Your Vanity Series showcases a single beauty item a beauty insider loves because it’s effective, but also she feels she must keep out on top of her vanity because the gorgeous packaging must be displayed.

This morning I interviewed the lovely Miranda Kerr, Victoria’s Secret angel extraordinaire, about what’s on her vanity at the Victoria’s Secret store reopening in Herald Square. She was the portrait of lovely and even engaged Amber Kallor from Shape and me in a dance party to one of her favorite Latin-influenced songs on her iPhone on the spot. Here’s what’s on her vanity.

 Says Miranda, “I love essential oils. I always keep sandalwood essential oil out and with me and I put it on my pulse points.”  And her holiday party beauty essential? “I wear my line, Kora Organics’ Luxurious Rosehip Oil high in vitamin c, essential fatty acids and anti-aging and it’s certified organic.”

As for her holiday picks? Miranda Kerr would like to be on the receiving end of the Dream Angels Demi Bra ($52-$72), VS Sport items (my favorite for working out) and the Very Sexy Seduction Garter Slip ($68-$88).  All are available at

More Lululemonaid: Victoria’s Secret Yoga V-Front Legging

In my quest for Fergie levels of fitness, I’ve had to invest in many pairs of workout leggings. I’ve thrown down $90+ for Lululemon’s Wonder Unders and while they last a long time, I find I need more pants in my arsenal for my 5-times weekly workout rotation of late. So I went in search of more Lululemonaid, this time in the pants category.

Enter Victoria’s Secret Yoga V-Front Legging. You can choose from four different colors for the band, which hits at the perfect slimming point of your waist so that there’s no muffin top while you’re ridding yourself of muffin top AND it’s opaque enough that no one’s seeing my underpants during the round back portion of Core Fusion.

What’s On Victoria’s Secret Angel Erin Heatherton’s Vanity?

The What’s On Your Vanity Series showcases a single beauty item a beauty insider loves because it’s effective, but also she feels she must keep out on top of her vanity because the gorgeous packaging must be displayed.

Beauties, yesterday I was lucky enough to be invited to a beautiful luncheon with three Victoria’s Secret Angels at Imperial No. 9 at the Mondrian Soho hotel to fete the launch of the brand’s new fragrance, Love is Heavenly. The fruity-floral is light, pretty and girly without being saccharine, boasting notes of kiwi, dewberry, mandarin flowers and orange zest at the top, middle notes of water lily, peony and exotic orchids and a dry-down of sandalwood, luminous musk, mahogany wood and ebony wood. It’s sultry enough to pique a gentleman’s interest, but fresh enough not to be nauseating on a hot summer night. Tell you more, tell you more? The Victoria’s Secret Love Is Heavenly fragrance retails for $42 (1 ounce) at this month.

The scent!

And naturally, I hit up rumored gal pal of one Mr. Leonardo DiCaprio, Erin Heatherton about what’s on her vanity. Here’s what she said:

Fictionary: Imprompdo

Fictionary is a column showcasing beauty-related words that don’t exist, but should.
Me rocking my imprompdo. Pic courtesy of Marina!

So on Tuesday, I had to rock an imprompdo–an updo that was more the result of circumstance than my wanting to wear my hair up. Because I NEVER wear my hair up. I believe the last time I did was in 2008 when I was in my friend Amber’s Bahamas wedding and it was about 300 degrees there in June and I was forced to.

My hair is sort of my thing–I rock it the way other people do accessories. But the Viviscal I’ve been taking–while genius, amazing, life-changing, divine–it makes my roots pretty oily after 48 hours. And since Tuesday was an in-office day followed by a Redken event and then a livestream for Victoria’s Secret (Very Sexy For Spring 2012) from 8-11pm, I plum didn’t have time to wash my hair before heading to the evening events. And dry shampoo helps, but not enough. Mama needs a wash. Because it was such a late night, I’d extended my blowout about 8 hours beyond the norm (which is already pushing it, I should really be washing daily when taking Viviscal) and was forced to rock a topknot, my imprompdo of choice.
