Elle MacPherspon Fronts For Blackglama Mink

elle_blackglama.jpg

Elle McPherson is the next in a long line of celebrities to appear in mink company Blackglama's ad campaign, "What Becomes a Legend Most?" MacPherson, 42, was big in the '90's, made several movies and had a recurring role on Friends. McPherson follows Judy Garland, Marlene Dietrich, Elizabeth Taylor, Audrey Hepburn, Rita Hayworth, Diana Ross, Carol Burnett, Lucille Ball, Ray Charles, Barbra Streisand, Cher, Linda Evangelista, Gisele Bundchen, Cindy Crawford and others, all of whom appeared in the mink company's ad campaigns. Did we just wake up on another planet or something? We thought Hollywood celebrities, being all liberal and such would, for sure, be against promoting mink. Oh wait, Hollywood is its own weird, screwed up planet. The campaign will kick off this fall.

Company spokeswoman Liv Asarnoj said, "After evaluating the situation, we have decided that a campaign with Kate Moss is not consistent with H&M's clear disassociation from drugs."

Fantasy Britney Spears Fragrance Set to launch

fantasy1.jpg

Following the launch of Curious and timed, perhaps, to refocus attention away from tawdry, marriage/pregnancy news coverage, Britney Spears will launch a new Elizabeth Arden fragrance called Fantasy Britney Spears. Which, intriguingly, is exactly what the girl needs right now to whisk her away from the less than glamorous aspects of real life. Adrants reader Chris Peterson points us to the launch site which doesn't contain much more than Flash-y imagery and a form to sign up and receive messages about the product.
