The 2013 FiFi Awards are tonight! Highly regarded as the biggest event for the fragrance industry, tonight’s ceremony in New York City will honor the biggest accomplishments in perfume. Taylor Swift will be honored as the Fragrance Celebrity of the Year, and A-listers like Kerry Washington and Connie Britton are scheduled to attend. In April, we asked you to vote on which celebrity fragrance you think should take home an award, and after tallying up the poll results and reading through the comments, the results are in! Justin Bieber‘s Girlfriend scent won by a landslide with over 36,000 votes, while Nicki Minaj‘s inaugural scent Pink Friday came in second with 4,000 votes. Minaj and Bieber are going head-to-head for the Fragrance of the Year in the Women’s Popular category, with Halle Berry‘s Closer and Christina Aguilera‘s Red Sin scents also nominated for the title. Since the big reveal is tonight, we’re asking one last time: Which celeb scent are you rooting for? Scroll down to vote in our poll below, and stay tuned to see who takes home the scent-sational award. More
Halle Berry—four months pregnant and expecting her second child—was anything but another face out to brunch on Mother’s Day. The actress Berry yet again turned heads in a form-fitting, purple dress, this time complemented by several long, beaded necklaces. The look is one Berry is fond of, and not just when expecting (this time with fiancé Olivier Martinez). “I just want to keep my sense of style while I’m pregnant,” she told InStyle in 2008 while pregnant with Nahla, now 5. If her past is any indication, we can expect to see the actress continue to wow us in flattering V-necks and body-hugging ensembles—just like another standout maternity style inspiration for moms-to-be!
See more great maternity style.

Halle Berry and fiancé Olivier Martinez are pregnant with their first child together, confirms People magazine! The 46-year-old InStyle cover girl first became pregnant with daughter Nahla in 2007, and we must confess: the star, already impossibly beautiful, became even moreso during her pregnancy. She radiated with so much of that pregnancy glow (right), and we fully expect the same to happen this time around. “I definitely want children,” Halle told InStyle in April 2007, prior to her first pregnancy. “Very much. I want my kids to realize it’s only through hard work that any success or real joy comes. It’s not about money; it’s the intangible rewards—having integrity and doing what you say you’re going to do.” Congrats to the expectant couple!

We’re still reeling from all of the glamorous ensembles from last night’s Oscars, and nude glosses and lipsticks were the big winners in the beauty department! Stars like Halle Berry, Jennifer Lawrence, Salma Hayek, and Naomi Watts traded statement-making red carpet hues for subdued, flesh-toned lips. The look balanced the strong eye shadows worn by Berry, Lawrence, and Hayek, while adding a delicate touch to Watts’ shimmery makeup. “We went for a soft rose that mimics Naomi’s natural lip color,” said Watts’ makeup artist Pati Dubroff, who used Chanel’s Rouge Coco Lip Color in Mademoiselle ($34; chanel.com). “My inspiration for her look was all about strength, unabashed glamour and polish, with a good dose of femininity.” We love it! Click through our gallery to see the rest of the looks we loved, along with tips from the pros who created each look.
It’s not all about the ingenues tonight! Although all eyes are on starlets like Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Chastain, and Anne Hathaway for their gorgeous hair and makeup choices, seasoned red carpet vets are bringing just as much glamour to the 2013 Oscars. Between their perfectly-styled strands and glowing complexions, the winning looks worn by Helen Hunt, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Halle Berry, Salma Hayek, Jennifer Aniston, and Naomi Watts are among our favorites. Each star opted out of dramatic lipsticks, eye shadows, and updos to allow their ensembles to take center stage. “I was inspired to keep Halle’s look very tonal and casual with this dress, because it’s a very striking and bold look,” said Berry’s makeup artist Kara Yoshimoto Bua. “She was presenting the James Bond tribute, and the dress is very Bond Girls—it’s kind of like wearing a Cadillac!” According to the red carpet pros, less is more! We want to know: Whose look was your favorite? Tell us in the comments!
