Her next launch is Mysterio eau de parfum ($39.50), a floral musk that's expected to sell $5 million in its first year alone. "This is meant to be the sexy, mysterious scent," she told WWD. The fragrance, which combines notes including freesia, plumeria, jasmine, violet, and sandalwood, will launch in February. When it does, will you check it out?

Eva Longoria sparkled on the red carpet at last night's Padres Contra El Cancer's 8th Annual "El Sueno De Esperanza" benefit gala in LA. With children and Eva there, naturally talk turned to babies. After responding "nope" when asked about plans to have kids soon, she said, "People always say 'I want a boy! I want a girl!' I just think, Oh my gosh, I just want a healthy child. . . That's truly a gift. If you're a healthy adult, to complain about anything in life that's so minute, you really have to be grateful for everything that you have and do something with it." Just another sound bite to add to her library of baby answers, which happens to be the same thing she said at the event last year — I'd feel bad for her if she didn't seem like she's eating up the attention.
Britney Spears slipped into a sexy LBD and hit the blue carpet with a smile on Saturday night at the Generation Rescue Event hosted by Jim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy. The pop star apparently sipped on red wine, looked happy and expressed interest in the information about autism Jim and Jenny presented through the night. Friday's big news about settling her custody dispute with Kevin — even though she now owes him $20,000 per month in child support — must have put Britney in a good enough mood to want to hit the town and hang out with some celebrity friends. It's not often that we get red carpet Miss Spears these days, but perhaps this is a sign that she's ready to get back out there and smile for all the cameras.

Last night the stars came out to celebrate the Hollywood Reporter Power 100 Breakfast in LA. John Travolta and Queen Latifah took on the hosting duties, while stars like Emmy Rossum, Michelle Trachtenberg, and Nikki Blonsky were in the house to pose pretty. The ladies who made the impressive list are the masterminds behind the entertainment industry: Oprah came in at No. 8, while Jodie Foster was honored with the fourth annual Sherry Lansing Leadership Award. This might not be as much fun as our year-end Best of 2007 polls, but it's still a great honor for all these fabulously successful women.

Eva Longoria hosted a benefit called El Sueno De Esperanza (the dream for hope) in LA yesterday. Her costars Brenda Strong and Nicollette Sheridan as well as Jessica Alba came out to support the charity, which gives money to kids and families that have cancer. Eva kept relatively quiet about her personal life, aside from revealing that she and Tony aren't planning on having kids any time soon. That said, she was more than happy to talk about being proud of her heritage and supporting the Latino community. Here's more:
"My wedding dress was by (Venezuelan) Angel Sanchez, and I try to do my best to wear as many Latino designers as I can.
My husband (in the series) Ricardo Antonio Chavira and myself, we're very, very proud to represent Latinos everywhere, all over the world, and we're happy to see positive images of Latinos on television."
How cute is tiny Eva in between her Brenda and Nicollette? So much for all those bickering stories between co-stars. These girls are not only doing great things for their community but they always seem to be supporting one another.

We are offered a breath of fresh air in the world of magazine covers as lovely Daisy Fuentes graces the cover of the September issue of Fitness Magazine as their first Mind, Body Spirit Superstar (a fab way to generate awareness of top women’s health causes and work to promote change).
Along with reminding all women not to be too hard on themselves, she talks mainly about her new focus in life: Positive body image.
Fitness: Do you think our society has an obsession with thinness?
Daisy: Yeah. There was a time when I was caught up in it too. I had to stop myself from saying, “I’m fat.” It’s not good for your self-esteem, and it’s not good for the people around you. I see moms with little girls who say, “I’m fat. I can’t eat that.” We need to stop doing that. We have to set an example for younger girls.
Fitness: Do Hispanic women feel the pressure to be thin?
Daisy: I think we do. There’s a part of you that really wants to embrace your curves, then there’s society saying no one likes curves. It takes someone as confident as Jennifer Lopez to turn a body part that’s often considered a flaw into something hot. The lesson? Stop listening to society and focus on yourself.
