It has been a while since I have stalked the celebs, so I went to Manhattan to check out the 38th annual Fifi Awards. The Fifi awards are the Oscar’s of the fragrance industry…and yes, it may sound strange….like seriously? Perfume awards? However, the fragrance industry is worth over 20 billion dollars in just the United States alone! And besides….New Yorkers need another excuse to dress up, look fabulous and walk the red carpet!
Some shots from the night….

what is usher wearing?!?! its like a vest but ugly, haha
“Usher, honored as the FIFI’s 2010 Fragrance Celebrity of the Year, wore a padded black waistcoat by Alexander McQueen that resembled fencing garb.”
To be honest…I didn’t mind it! I think its hard for guys to find ‘unique’ menswear….so I like him for trying.!
what they didn’t invite me.. I mean with fragrances like ” early morning 24D”, spilt diesel,and smoking clutch.
ha ha! Well, Dad….maybe they will invite you next year..?
