With her piercing blue eyes and soft features, Karl Lagerfeld's cat Choupette (wait, did you think I was talking about a person?) has always seemed like she could be a model, but now it's official. Choupette will be the new face of a holiday capsule collection for cosmetic brand Shu Uemura. The collection's name? Shupette. I know—perfection. This marks the first time an animal has teamed up with a beauty brand, confirming what we already knew: Choupette is the most powerful cat in fashion. After all, she's already inspired a capsule collection of accessories that included fingerless gloves, purses, and, of course, iPad cases—a nod to her favorite device to play with. Plus she has more Twitter followers than most human beings.
Vanessa Hudgens, totally unretouched.
Vanessa Hudgens is back with her second Bongo campaign. The fact that the company tapped the actress as their face for another season isn't surprising—the fact that these images are totally unretouched, however, is. "It’s so important for girls to remember that real beauty shines from within," Vanessa said in the press release. "I’m so proud that Bongo is choosing to send such a positive message with this campaign." It's refreshing to see a model, let alone an actress like Hudgens with such a wide reach, opt out of Photoshopping—especially since heavily edited images have become the norm, setting crazy unrealistic standards for beauty.
Vanessa doesn't need any help from Photoshop, of course. She looks flawless as ever in the photos and even stays true to her OG boho style in the campaign.
Last summer, Katy Perry went ALL out to promote her new Killer Queen fragrance (think: corsets, canes, and powdered wigs) and just when we thought all the amazingness was over, KP recently revealed she would be releasing another "sassy sapphire sister" scent called Royal Revolution. Before today, we only peeped the super-sleek silver and blue bottle, but Katy just posted the first pic from her fragrance campaign on Instagram, and we're so ready to see her take over the throne, y'all.
Your new scent for summer.

Every day in Beyonce's life is probably pretty epic, but today (June 18) was EXTRA for the superstar. Not only did she make a cameo appearance in Michelle William's new music video, but she also released the first looks at her brand new fragrance, Heat Wild Orchid. For all you mere mortals reading today, don't worry—if you even made it out of bed this morning, you're still probably doing OK. It's all relative.
Wow, you guys, do you remember back in December when we spotted Rita Ora in Times Square shooting some sort of fragrance campaign? At the time we speculated that it might be for DKNY and—guess what?—we were right!
DKNY just unveiled the first ad from the campaign for My NY, their new fragrance, and it features Rita's gorgeous mug front and center. Between the bright-red lips, bold brows, and palpable excitement, this image screams Rita. I have no idea what this fragrance smells like (yet!), but if Rita is this happy about it, I'm bound to be too.
Rihanna's gone rogue, y'all.

Last summer, Rihanna released her fourth fragrance, Rogue, complete with an ad campaign featuring our girl curled up beside a life-size bottle of the scent partially naked with her gams and sultry stare on full display. You might remember it, but you also might not—mostly because Rih is becoming pretty well-known for flashing her skin around like it ain't no thang. (And we're not mad at that!) But, in the UK, the Advertising Standards Authority had a major problem with RiRi's "provocative" campaign.
