Celebrities like Brandy and Jayma Mays love looks by Paule Ka. The label is quickly becoming a popular red-carpet choice, and you can thank the founding designer Serge Cajfinger(shown) for that. The Frenchman created the company 23 years ago, and he’s thrilled with its surging popularity with the Hollywood crowd. “I am always so delighted to see women wearing my creations,” Cajfinger told InStyle. “My creations are made for the girls of today. They want elegance, timelessness, creativity and modernity. They want to be different.” One of his recent favorites is dressing teen sensation Selena Gomez, which thrilled his niece. “She was so proud to see one of her idols wearing a creation by her uncle,” he told us.

After Kate Walsh breaks up with a guy, it isn’t her ex that she misses; it’s the way he smells. That’s why the Private Practice star created a fragrance that evokes the scent of a man, minus the man. “Everyone wants to have that boyfriend feeling, whether you have a boyfriend or not,” Walsh, in Ferragamo, told us last night at the launch of her fragrance at Sephora in New York. “It’s obvious [because] there are boyfriend shirts, boyfriend jeans, and it’s like what is that? What do we crave?” For Walsh, it’s a scent. Sure, she had tried to actually wear men’s fragrance, but couldn’t seem to find one that was subtle enough for day wear. With her new perfume, it’s just the right mix of masculine and feminine—yes, we sniffed it—with notes like jasmine, amber and vanilla. The fragrance is available now in oil, lotion and perfume for $20 to $95 exclusively at Sephora stores and Sephora.com.

Superstar Jennifer Lopez’s schedule is always jam-packed, which is why she’s happy her new her gig as judge on American Idol offers up a weekly dose of fun. “I’ve been working forever—this is the easiest job I’ve ever had!” Lopez told us yesterday at an event announcing her global ambassador status for Gillette Venus razors. “There’s so much respect and love and admiration [between the judges], we’ve become a family very quick.” Rather, her biggest challenge on the show is the decision-making process. “I didn’t realize we would have so much talent and that we would have to get rid of them,” the mother-of-two said. “But at the end of the day, these people have to deliver in the moment. That’s what the whole game is.” As for Lopez’s new beauty contract, it makes her happy in a different way. “I like showing skin,” she said. “I like showing my legs, my back, my arms. Having smooth and moisturized skin makes me feel very sexy.” Lopez’s latest single, “On the Floor” featuring Pitbull, is out now.
