"Being a bombshell is about attitude. Bombshells demand attention."
Is there anyone who knows the definition of "bombshell" better than Alessandra Ambrosio? Yesterday morning the St. Regis, in New York City, Victoria's Secret unveiled its new Bombshell eau de parfum. The fruity, aromatic, floral scent is the newest addition to the company's extensive line of fragrances.
Hosted by "Chief Executive Bombshell" Sharen Turney, the company's CEO, along with legendary angels Ambrosio, Miranda Kerr, and Candice Swanepoel. The room was set up as a presentation of past scents, highlighting Very Sexy—a recent winner of a prestigious FiFi Award—Sexy Little Things Noir, and Dream Angels Heavenly.
The new Bombshell perfume will hit stores in September, just in time for New York Fashion Week. A pop up store will be set up in front of The Plaza, which will be composed of a glass structure created in the image of the new bottle. —Anna Fursoff
