Mary J. Blige Sets HSN Record With My Life Fragrance

Mary J. Blige and Cathie Northagen of HSN sat in an absolutely beautiful and posh setting to launch Mary's My Life fragrance on HSN. Mary's first foray into fragrance with a partnership with Carol's Daughter was a proven success! According to Women's Wear Daily HSN sold $3 million dollars worth of My Life. With more than 72,000 units within a 24-hour period, My Life set a HSN record! I expect to see more fragrances from Mary J. Blige and Carol's Daughter in the future...

Halle Berry Covers Vogue September Issue

Halle Berry covers Vogue's September issue - and if you know any thing about fashion - you know the September issue is THE issue! I enjoyed reading the snippets from Halle's interview, though I must say that the fact that Halle is the first black women since 1989 to cover Vogue September issue is highly disappointing...

On her first interview in three years:
Halle Berry: "I was burned-out with having other people tell the story about me that they wanted to tell. I told my publicist, 'I'm not going to talk anymore. I'm just going to live my life and be who I am.'"
On being asked to be on the cover of the September issue of Vogue:
Halle Berry: "What that means for a woman of color and what that means in the fashion world, what that means to pop culture, there was no way I could say, 'No I'm not going to be on the biggest issue of the year.'"
