Justin Bieber is launching his first perfume. "Let's be real, the way a girl smells is very important to a guy!" says the singer.

These rings are made of dried fruit, and are therefore edible. We thought we had a comprehensive edible-ring vocabulary, what with our undying love of Ring Pops and sticking Cheez Doodle O's on our fingers. But these are kind of cool, too. [Refinery29]

That white Dolce & Gabbana lace dress that's been on every cover this spring just scored another one: Constance Jablonski — who already wore The Dress for the cover of Spanish Vogue in February — wore it again for the new Greek Vogue. [DS]

  • Allure editor-in-chief Linda Wells says it's time to quit bitching about excessive Photoshopping. "At Allure, we do a lot of retouching — as a matter of fact we do most of it on my editor's photo.…Retouching was born when portrait photography was born." [WWD]
  • Sarah Ferguson: "People say to me, 'What is your brand identity?' And I say, 'I'm a global mother.'" [Harper's Bazaar]
  • Richie Rich: "I'm really into this Aztec kind of Indian feeling, that East Village feeling of everything goes. You could do head-to-toe black, that chic kind of look, but also a lot of prints and colors, that kind of Navajo-gone-disco — I think it's back. I think pop culture in general is coming back. People don't want to be told to be boring or mundane. They want to be told nothing. They want to be exquisitely happy and excited." [The Cut]
  • Ted Danson accepted a $100,000 check from Estée Lauder on behalf of Oceana, the charity he co-founded in 1987. "I'm just the guy who says thanks for watching Cheers. Here's a marine biologist you should speak to," said the actor. [WWD]

  • Lindsay Wixson, 17, on how she started modeling at age 14: "My Mum and I drove down to Los Angeles, which my parents had to take out a loan for, it was so expensive. And we shot a film with Vision LA — another model agency. Somehow Steven Meisel ended up seeing it and he then booked me for Vogue Italia. That was my first job. I remember it all so clearly, we were staying in this really run down hotel — there were actually bugs, and I got a phone call really early from Steven's people. I ran to the laundry room and just screamed." In the full interview, Wixson talks about being bullied in middle school, meeting Madonna, and how sometimes now Prada flies her business class to Beijing for a show, and that's kind of cool but weird.

  • Ruby Jean, also 17: "It's such a short-term job that if you have a chance to do it, you might as well give it a go. And if it doesn't work then it doesn't work. Sadly, 23 years of life in model years is like 95 years of normal life." [The Cut]
