I can't wait, because I have been crying over my depleted sample!!
Bond No. 9's Bryant Park was inspired by midtown's Bryant Park, home to New York City's Fashion Week. The fragrance has notes of rose, patchouli, pink pepper, lily of the valley, rhubarb, raspberry and amber.
This has become my new favorite fragrance. Having been a fan of West Side, I find Bryant Park to be even more pleasing to the senses. The scent is pretty, flirty, and wearable. The notes blend nicely, and none are too overpowering. I like how the rhubarb adds a bit of tartness to the top notes, and how the pink pepper & patchouli contrasts with the sweeter raspberry & floral notes. When the scent dries down you will notice the rhubarb & raspberry, but i don't find it to be too sweet or too girly.
It will be available in 50 ml ($125) or 100 ml ($185) bottles of Eau de Parfum, or by the ounce in the Bond no. 9 boutiques in New York City
Pre-Order it today on the bond no. 9 website and have it shipped to you first thing tomorrow, or pick it up at the nearest Bond store & select SAKS Fifth Avenue location.

despite the fact that tyra has yet to produce a top model, i continue to watch this show religiously, so i will be tuning into the CW tonight for the 2 hour season premiere. as a result, my boyfriend will surely be watching tv in the other room, & sophie, out of confusion, will sit in the hallway unable to choose who to cuddle up next to.

Cate Blanchett won me over in Armani:
Worst Dressed: Dreamgirls:
hated the jacket on Jennifer Hudson, I hated the pockets on her, I wasn't sure about Beyonce's dress, it wasn't the best choice for her. I liked both of their dresses they performed in better than the ones they sported on the red carpet.
Kirsten Dunst missed with this choice (i believe it is Chanel (??)):
she didn't even get the hair & makeup right!
hate this dress on her, and she over did the jewels
The show was way way way too long, I loved the singing performances (especially the one with Will Ferrell, Jack Black, and John C. Reilly) I loved Ellen, I hated the 200 million 20 minute film clip reels!!!

I have my picks, I went back and forth and I am predicting some major upsets, maybe a few too many. I just saw Peter O' Toole in Venus, and although he has an honorary Oscar, I think it is a travesty that he hasn't won an oscar for best actor. I think he is more than overdue. This year the competition is fierce. I've watched so many great movies this year and I can say there are few if any people who could win and would be undeserving! In any event, here are my picks. As for the red carpet I am predicting to see some beautiful gowns from marchesa, badgley mischka, monique lhuillier, & hopefully some zac posen, on the red carpet...also a lot of white, blush & netural tones, metallics, with a few jewel tones thrown in (i am hoping for bolder color any ways!).
Best Actor: Peter O'Toole- Venus
Best Supporting Actor: Mark Wahlberg- The Departed
Best Actress: Helen Mirren- The Queen
Best Supoorting Actress: Jennifer Hudson- Dreamgirls
Documentary Feature: An Inconvenient Truth
Film Editing: Babel
Best Picture: Babel
Costume: Marie Antoinette
Original Song: Listen Dreamgirls
Original Screenplay-The Queen
Adapted Screenplay- Notes on A Scandal (ALTHOUGH I WANT BORAT TO WIN FOR THIS!!!)
Sound Mixing: Pirates of the Caribbean
Sound Editing: Letters From Iwa Jima
Short Film Animated- The Danish Poet
Short Film Live Action- West Bank Story
Original Score- Babel
Foreign Language Film: Pan's Labyrinth
Documentary Short: Recycled Life
Cinematography: The Illusionist
Art Direction: Dreamgirls
Animated Feature: Cars
