It has provoked anti-racism groups to file legal complaints and protests were made in front of the Guerlain store located at the Champs-Elysees in Paris.
Guerlain was fined 6,000 euros or £5,000 in Paris yesterday. He was not sentenced with any prison time although his charge could put him six months behind bars. He was also asked to pay 2,000 euros for damages to each of the three anti-racist groups who were civil plaintiffs.
Miley Cyrus sure knows how to make a statement on the red carpet. She did so once again at Muhammad Ali’s Celebrity Fight Night XVIII last Saturday.

The orange dress had a thigh-high slit which showed off her right leg to prominence. Good thing Miley did not put out her right leg so much or else it would have been an exact replica of Angelina Jolie’s much-talked-about brandishing leg at the Oscars.

Do you, by any chance, have any desire to smell like billionaire Donald Trump? If this has been your wish, I think it’s going to come true pretty soon! The Chairman and President of the Trump Organization has a second fragrance coming up that is called “Success by Trump.” Sounds like a powerful fragrance doesn’t it? You be the judge.
You see, “Success by Trump” is composed of different flavors including fresh juniper, iced red currant, coriander, frozen ginger, fresh bamboo leaves, geranium, vetiver, tonka bean, birch wood and musk. These ingredients do seem very manly. But the question is how would their combined flavors be like? You’ll know very soon when the fragrance becomes available exclusively at Macy’s.

But Iris Apfel, who already expressed her dislike for high heels, might not be as thrilled.
The Iris shoe is high-heel footwear at its best with five inch killer heels! It also features leather embellished with colorful resin chips and tassel.
