There must be a celebrity rule that we don't know about that you're not 100 percent legit until you attach your name to a perfume. EVERYONE HAS ONE. And now ... so does Katy Perry! After developing the scent for a year, she just released the news this morning. Her fragrance will be called Purr. "I kept wanting to tell someone!" she told WWD today.

The scent itself combines notes of peaches, apples, and green bamboo. FRUITY. Playing off a feline-theme for the name, the bottle design was inspired by Katy's Catwoman performance outfit, and will be cat-shaped with jeweled eyes. Her "purr"-fume will be sold exclusively at Nordstrom for $36 to $65 depending on the bottle size starting this November. MEOW.

Nicki Minaj's new video for "Your Love" came out yesterday, and it's a blast from the East! It was packed with Eastern-inspired outfits (think silky kimonos and black ninja catsuits) and extra-long Wolverine-style nails. It looked like Madame Butterfly meets Jackie Chan, only with extra sparkles and higher heels. And those outfits didn't land on Miss Minaj by accident — they were expertly calculated by Nicki's styling team led by Niki Schwan, and assisted by Adrien Field, Maeve Reilly, and Quentin. Today we caught up with Schwan for details on every single outfit in the video. See all the hand-picked designer looks and what Schwan had to say about Nicki's style below!

Your Love by Nicki Minaj
Stylists: Niki Schwan, Adrien Field, Maeve Reilly, and Quentin.
Hair: Custom-created by Terrance Davidson.
Makeup: Day with Buddhaflyy.

[Photo no longer available.]

Jacket: Lloyd Klein.
Belt: Frederick's of Hollywood.
Necklace and glove: Philippe Audibert.
Schwan on Nicki's style: "Nicki has a great sense of personal style. She's developing her platform. To be part of her team to help mold her and her image has been great. Now we've gotten to a point where she can push the envelope a lot more. And we're going through a beautiful transition where she wants to keep unique edge and she wants to step it up. She wants to be sexier and more classic."

Selena Gomez, how well-dressed you are! It's about time we celebrate it, and there's no better moment than today, her 18th birthday. Her style particularly wowed us this week, when the diva-in-training made the rounds to promote her new movie, Ramona and Beezus. She's so put together. And classy. And, gloriously age-appropriate. Sometimes, it's almost TOO MUCH!

Her top three looks this week:

• On Tuesday, she attended the premiere of Ramona wearing a black and white outfit — white shorts, a white tank, and white short-sleeve sweater (top by Christian Cota), which she cinched with an extra-long black belt. She finished the look with black peep-toe heels by Christian Louboutin. See this? THIS is how you make shorts dressy.

• Also on Tuesday, wore a strapless top by Collette Dinnigan tucked into a tight black pencil skirt by Versace when she visited the set of The Tonight Show With David Letterman. You can also see she's wearing the same black peep-toe heels that she wore to the premiere. Yes, girl. Reuse and recycle!

• Then, on July 15, she wore a one-shoulder Reem Acra dress to Univision Premios Juventud Awards in Miami last week. We love her shimmery heels (also Loubs). She's GLOWING.

Judging from her style so far, we have very high hopes for her future fashion choices. We imagine it will be filled with many, many more peep-toe heels.

+ Which look do you like the best on Selena?

Remember how soft Ke$ha looked when she ditched her face paint? Well, rest assured, she's definitely not giving up on glitter anytime soon. Last night, the pop star opened for Rihanna's Last Girl on Earth Tour in Los Angeles wearing a sequined romper, black combat boots, and fishnets. She also accessorized with sunglasses and headbands during the performance. But the best accessories weren't the ones she wore — they were the ones painted on her skin, like the design on her arm and the star on her face. Sharpies are the new jewelry!

+ Would you paint on yourself like Ke$ha?

Singer Pixie Lott been all up on our radar lately. She opened for Rihanna's Last Girl on Earth tour this spring, and she's always keeping things fresh with her punk-slash-girly style. Like last night, when she wore a short-short-SHORT floral-print dress with a bustier top and tutu-style skirt while performing at the iTunes Festival in London. She accessorized her poufy skirt with combat boots, which makes her look sort of looks like Alice in Wonderland gone grunge.

+ Would you wear this dress?

Who needs color when you can glitter in metallic silver and sparkly black? Naomi Watts lit up the red carpet at the Salt premiere in a silver strapless Gucci dress, which looked so stunning with her blonde hair. Continuing the shiny trend, Alyssa Milano accepted her VH1 Do Something award last night in a silver top and high-waisted, cropped black pants by Alice + Olivia. She added a pop of color with her parrot-green platform pumps, which are so ladylike — but with a twist. LOVE! And because the third time is the charm, Angelina Jolie attended last night's premiere of Salt in a strapless black dress by Emporio Armani.

Did you see what Kristin Cavallari wore to the Salt premiere in Los Angeles last night? It was scandalous and revealing in the best way possible! The former star of The Hills rocked a gray dress with spiky shoulders a deep, DEEP cowl neck by designers Phillipe and David Blond of the fashion label The Blonds. She looked so bold. And confident. And as soon as we saw this photo of her we thought ... we've seen this look before. Not once. TWICE. Rihanna wore a red version back in November after her record release party in New York, and we also spotted it on Kim Cattrall when she played Samantha Jones in Sex And The City 2 a few months ago. The power of one dress with dangerous shoulders! So, we caught up with the design duo today to find out more about their popular design. Read on to find out what inspired them to create this look. Plus, who do you think wore it best — Rihanna, Kristin, or Kim? See who the Blonds picked below. Read More...

Symmetry is SO last week. Last night, singer Corinne Bailey Rae attended Barclaycard Mercury Award nominations in London wearing a black one-shoulder jumpsuit. Even though a jumpsuit skews trendy, on her it looks so classic and elegant. She kept the rest of her look totally minimal, with zero jewelry and pretty silver heels. Stephanie Pratt was also feeling the power of the one-shoulder: she rolled up to the New York premiere of The Extra Man in an asymmetrical floral-patterned tunic dress. Her look is far girlier than Corinne's, but simple nonetheless. She also masters the difficulty of pulling off a necklaces with a one-shoulder outfit — keep it long so that it doesn't mess with your diagonal neckline.

Lindsay Lohan might be reporting to jail tomorrow to serve a 90-day sentence, but you'll still be able to see her on the latest issue of Complex magazine. (Her pose for this cover looks similar to her other cover this month for German GQ, does it not?)

But most interesting about this cover is how Complex added the streetwear element to Lohan by turning to graffiti artist and toy designer KAWS to illustrate her cover and photo spread. The artist painted over the photos so it would look like Lindsay was rolling around with KAWS' trademark giant paws.

The Kardashians waved their magic design wands yet again! After Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe Kardashian showed their Bebe collaboration line in February at New York Fashion Week, the sisters hit up Miami Fashion Week on Friday to present another one of their collaboration collections — this time for Beach Bunny swimwear. The sisters sat front row at the show to watch their designs parade down the runway alongside other beach getups by Beach Bunny designer Angela Chittenden. Selena Gomez sat front row as well, dazzling in a one-shoulder pink dress by Anlo. As for the suits themselves: BEWARE AWKWARD TAN LINES! There were black monokinis styled with thigh-high stockings, cross-top bikinis, and bandeau tops with lace insets in colors like ivory, purple, turquoise, and black. But, of course, you must see for yourself.

+ CLICK HERE to see the Kardashians, Selena, and 40 swimsuits on the runway!!!

Would you wear Kardashian-designed swimsuits? The Kardashian-designed pieces are available online for $87 (bikini bottoms), $88 (bikini tops), and $175 (one-pieces).

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
