Inspiring, no?Photo: FilmMagic

• Christina Aguilera’s first scent made for sale in the U.S. is called Inspire and was inspired by Andy Warhol and Tokyo. Now if we didn’t have celebrities, how else would we make connections like this? [WWD]

• Mario Testino says he loves Agyness Deyn and dropped her from the Burberry campaign because he wanted a different concept for the forthcoming season, not because she’s too famous. [NYP]

• Here’s a long essay about the clothes in the Sex and the City movie. The only part that comes close to surprising is that Miranda reportedly looks quite polished, better than she did in the series. Perhaps Charlotte’s the frumpy one this time around. [WWD]

• Behati Prinsloo is the new face of Victoria’s Secret’s Pink line. The 19-year-old Namibia native could be the next big spokesmodel for the company. Project Phase Out Heidi Klum starts: now. [NYP]

• Victoria’s Secret’s international headquarters are on Broadway and 55th Street, so, uh, go look for models there or something. [NYP]

• Stella McCartney will present her spring 2009 collection at a garden party in New York. We already feel sugarplums dancing in our heads. [WWD]

• News for rich people: Badgley Mischka is launching a fine-jewelry collection with pieces starting at $2,000. [WWD]

• Karl Lagerfeld will have a photography show at Versailles this summer to remind us all that only he gets to hold his photography show at Versailles. [WWD]

• Madonna didn’t show up to the party Diane von Furstenberg held in her honor on her yacht in Cannes because she was “taking meetings.” [NYDN]

• Gisele Bundchen on if she’d get plastic surgery: “Actually, I asked my mother the very same question and she said, ‘It’s taken me 58 years for me to look like this. You think I’m going to ruin it now?” Touché. [British Vogue]

• Jonathan Kelsey made a pair of “Amy” shoes for Amy Winehouse, which you can buy in London for almost $750. What are you waiting for? It’s a three-day weekend! [British Vogue]
