The time for celebs hot-footing it down the Red Carpet in fabulous gowns and jewels has come to a close for the year, and with the TV season wrapping up for the summer, too, it seems like there's nothing to look forward to. But the beauty industry would beg to differ—it's their awards season! The most recent fete? The FiFi Awards, presented to the year's best scents by the Fragrance Foundation.
Gossip Girl's Taylor Momsen turned out for the party, and so did Friday Night Lights' Minka Kelly. 2008 Hall of Fame award winner Vera Wang was in attendance to collect her crystal FiFi, and she was joined be fellow designers/fragrance entrepreneurs Zac Posen and Cynthia Rowley.
The night's top fragrance honors went to a whole slew of smell-goods. Marc Jacobs Daisy ($55-$70) was named Women's Fragrance of the Year in the Luxe category, topping 10 other competitors with its flirty, feminine, violet-infused scent;. The innocent-yet-seductive fragrance also took home the trophy for Best Packaging (who could resist those lovely, girly white and gold daisies?)
The unstoppable Beckhams also wracked up some wins, with FiFis for Fragrance of the Year—Women's Popular Appeal and Men's Popular Appeal. Posh's pink potion, Intimately Beckham—Woman ($18-$55), with ladylike top notes of bergamot, rose petals, and white flowers, is delicate and sophisticated, while Becks' formula topped its competitors with spicy, masculine charm (kind of like David himself, eh?) Intimately Beckham—Man ($45-$55) also took home honors for its sleek packaging in the Popular Appeal category.
