Lily-Rose Depp scored big!
On Monday, Karl Lagerfeld's latest muse was announced as the new face of their new Chanel No. 5 L'Eau fragrance! Lily-Rose celebrated the happy news with an Instagram post (above), which she captioned:
"I'm so excited to announce that I am the face of the new Chanel No. 5 L'EAU! ❤️ @chanelofficial #newchanel5"
So exciting! The Parisian label obviously feels pretty similarly, as they also added:
"[Lily-Rose] embodies her generation and its values of freedom and boldness to perfection, bringing to the iconic fragrance of the House her youthful freshness and beauty."

Eva Longoria's Curves Are Covered In White Diamonds To Celebrate Elizabeth Taylor's Latest Fragrance!
Talk about va-va-voom!
Making sure she stood out, the Telenovela starlet decided to dress in a bejeweled, metallic silver frock, which seemed to enhance her bursting cleavage!
Dusty rose Alaïa sandals and her beautiful ruby engagement ring finished off her already sparkling ensem.
It's a look the late Miz Taylor would have approved of herself, especially since Eva looked like she was dripping in diamonds!

This is awesome!
The 19-year-old daughter of Madonna joins Grimes, Kenya Kinski-Jones, and Amandla Stenberg in the body positive campaign, which promotes self-acceptance.
In choosing her, the designer said:
"So happy to have Lola on the POP team! Lola, who I've known her entire life, is at the beginning of her career as a performing artist. She's an independent, inspirational and free-spirited young woman. Despite being born in the spotlight, she has kept her feet firmly on the ground!"
For her part, Lola praised the campaign's message and admitted she struggles with body acceptance issues as well:
Johnny Depp may dress like a homeless person, but does he smell like one?
On Sunday, the acclaimed actor took the stage at the 2nd Annual Beauty Awards in Hollywood, where he opened up about his appearance… and signature scent! LOL!
The 52-year-old remembered how a magazine voted him both best AND worst dressed, writing that he looked like a hobo. But the gorgeous guy is adamant that he doesn't smell the way he looks, saying:
"When I met people they said, 'You do look like a hobo, but you smell really good.' And goddamn it, I smell really good!"
You tell 'em, Johnny!
We totally believe it though, considering he starred in Christian Dior's ad campaign for his fragrance Sauvage, and there's no way you can star in a cologne commercial if you smell bad! That would just be false advertising!
Anyway, the sweet-scented man honored the product at the ceremony, since it won Fragrance of the Year! He said:
Parlux Fragrances says their business stinks thanks to Jay Z!
The scent manufacturer is suing the music mogul, claiming the 46-year-old didn't really try to push their product like he promised.
The hitmaker had a licensing agreement with the company, in which he allowed Parlux to use his name and image for the 2013 cologne line Gold Jay Z.
But the way it's been selling — or rather, not selling — it probably should have been called Bronze Jay Z.
That's because the manufacturer is saying Beyoncé's husband was supposed to have a more active role in promoting the brand.
Apparently, the famous father declined to do promotional appearances at Macy's, in Women's Wear Daily, or on Good Morning America.
And, they claim the artist skipped out on meetings for follow-up fragrances, which is why those new products never hit store shelves.
He also supposedly passed on posting about the cologne on social media.
But we're betting Jay wishes he had taken the three seconds to craft a few 140-character tweets now, because Parlux is asking for a pretty penny!
The company says Gold Jay Z should have raked in $50 million within two years, but instead retailers are returning the fragrances!
They're suing for $18 million in damages.

Anything that can make us smell like the pop princess is welcome on our bathroom shelf.
The latest addition is a tropical-inspired perfume called Maui Fantasy, and the 34-year-old debuted it herself (above) on Instagram on Monday:
"Say aloha to my new destination fragrance #MauiFantasy!! 🌺 Coming soon!"
We don't know what it smells like, or how it will differ from her Island Fantasy scent, but we do know the bottle looks like a Christmas tree ornament for some reason.
Still, we bet there are plenty of tropical notes like hibiscus, some orchids, and maybe even a touch of ginger.
And if it's possible to stuff some inspirational quotes into a perfume, we hope there's that too!

Man, perfume commercials are almost always weird as hell.
The black and white clip has R-Patz doing that contemplative, brooding thing he does so well while walking the streets of New York.
But the truly strangest part is the series of "inspirational quotes" that appear throughout the video, like "Life is short," "Break the rules," "Live as if you'll die tomorrow," etc.
We're surprised they didn't just straight up write "Life is short… buy this perfume!" But it was implied, of course.
Anyway, watch the full ad (below)!
