• Celebrity stylist June Ambrose dished about her boredom with the fashions she’s seen on the red carpet this awards season: “I’m expecting to see lots of color at the Grammys — a lot of rock star attitude, you know?… I’m actually going to be reporting on what the Grammys and Oscars are going to look like… The Globes were kind of like, so muted and safe, and I’m really hoping that the opulent femininity kind of returns again.” We’d have to agree on that, especially after all those wonderful Paris couture shows, it’s time for celebrities to bring it!

Sephora by OPI is set to release a six-shade capsule of nail polishes and nail tip designs they designed with none other than Betsey Johnson. One of the shades, “It’s My Pink,” is Betsey ‘s signature hot pink, scented newest fragrance Too Too. Catch the line in Sephora stores next month! (WWD)

• February 18th, Jennifer Lopez will launch her 18th (why so many?) and newest fragrance, Glowing, which the American Idol judge describes as “a soapy, clean scent,” and “kind of New York-y,” whatever that means. Intrigued? Glowing will be in stores this May. (People StyleWatch)
