Chalk it up to her mile-high coiff, perfect cat-eye, and blood red lipstick, but Elvira is always a popular costume choice every Halloween. Now, thanks to her seductive trio of fragrances, you can invoke your inner temptress if you're planning on paying homage to everyone's favorite Mistress of the Dark. The star has teamed up with Demeter to create three sultry scents, and we caught up with her to get all the details on each one! "I've been wanting to do a fragrance for a while, and I loved Demeter's," she tells InStyle.com exclusively. "One of my favorites was Holy Water-I always keep a bottle with me, you know, just in case vampires are around."
Elvira's own collection includes Elvira's Black Roses, Elvira's Vamp, and Elvira's Zombie, but this isn't her first foray into fragrance-back in the '80s, she had a scent called Elvira's Evil, but these three are brand-new and very Elvira. "Typically, I like dark, sexy scents, and I like fragrances with musk and vanilla bean in them,

Time to grab your cowboy boots and sing along again as season two of Nashville premiered on ABC this week-Southern grit and glamour is back! InStyle happily hopped on the phone with costume designer Susie DeSanto to get the exclusive low down on what to expect from both Rayna (Connie Britton) and Juliette (Hayden Panettiere) this season as their rivalry continues on and off stage. "In terms of Juliette, she's trying to move away from the teeny-bopper look and have more of a sophisticated [style] as she wants to be taken more seriously. This season she will be wearing more serious designers," Susie tells InStyle. "And I was trying to give the season opener a monochromic look, trying to give the show a little more of a cinematic feel and blend the palette." Mission accomplished!

Gilbert Flores/BroadimageThere's a reason Sofia Vergara looked amazing at the 2013 Emmy Awards-her red-hot Vera Wang gown was custom-made to fit and flatter her every curve. "Vera offered to make a dress for me, and of course I was very flattered," the stunning actress told InStyle.com at the launch event for her latest Kmart collection. "My hair is blonde this year, and I wanted a contrast. She was willing to do two very beautiful red dresses in different shades for me," she said. But what really had everyone atwitter (and tweeting) on Emmy night was when Vergara publicly announced she was wearing Kmart underwear. "I always wear Kmart underwear because they're super-cute," she told us. "Last year, I had a wardrobe malfunction and you could see everything. This year, I was prepared because you never know!" Her Kmart lingerie line launched late last year, and she's been busy ever since creating new collections, including her upcoming fall/holiday line that plays up the aesthetics of her two favorite cities: NewRead More »from With the Emmys Over, We Asked Sofia Vergara What She Might Wear to the Golden Globes

Tony Barson/Getty ImagesNow here's a site we'll definitely be adding to our RSS feeds-Thandie Newton's beauty blog has officially launched! We first heard news of the star's latest venture when we spoke to her at the Toronto Film Festival, and we've been eagerly waiting for the blog to go live ever since. "It's really exciting! It's like in the format of a magazine," Newton told InStyle. "It's about pushing diversity, adding to what's already happening." ThandieKay.com is a collaborative effort between the star and makeup artist Kay Montano, and despite Montano's impressive resume, Newton is positive that her down-to-earth advice will become apparent. "What is great is that you realize she's a regular woman, so it makes regular women realize that they have all the power," she added. "She similarly wants to celebrate diversity, because it's what inspired both of us. We've traveled a lot, met a lot of incredible people, and so it's about giving that back. It's really authentic." We'll say! The blog is alreadyRead More »from Thandie Newton Has Joined the Beauty Blogging World!

While a lavish launch party announcing a brand's latest products was once the norm in the beauty world, NARS is changing the game by giving users a sneak peek at their upcoming Guy Bourdin-inspired range via Snapchat-which will then disappear into the ethos forever. The collection inspired by the late French photographer will roll out to stores on October 15, but if you're an avid Snapchatter, you could be getting previews of the impressive range in the weeks before the official release date. So, how does it work? Simply follow the "Narsissist" account on Snapchat, and you'll get access to a ten-second first look at the products as soon as today. NARS isn't the only style giant sending out snaps-for New York Fashion Week, Rebecca Minkoff enlisted the service to reveal pieces from her spring collection before the outfits even hit the runway. If you don't already have the app, download it for free at itunes.apple.com or play.google.com, and keep an eye out for NARS' Guy Bourdin

We're obsessed with Padma Lakshmi's gorgeous look on the red carpet tonight-and there's a story behind it. When discussing options with her makeup artist, Kathy Jeung, Lakshmi referenced the German model, Veruschka in the '70s. "So with that as our inspiration, we created a modern version: soft blended bronzing with a pop of pastel color on the eyes and a neutral full lip was another nod to that look of that era," Jeung told us. After prepping her skin with Koh Gen Do Cleansing Water ($39 at sephora.com) and La Mer Soft Cream ($285 at lamer.com), Jeung applied her foundation with a Stilazzi brush ($25 at stilazzi.com) and the Beauty Blender ($19.95 at sephora.com). first saturated with water, excess squeezed out to leave sponge moist (makeup artist tip!). The shimmery eye is from Christian Dior 5 Couleurs in Stylish Move ($60 at dior.com) and the retro lip is a combination of Giorgio Armani 203 ($34 at giorgioarmanibeauty-usa.com) topped off with Guerlain gloss in 45 ($34 at
New Fragrance News! a Toast-Scented Perfume Exists, and Bottega Veneta Expands on Their Signature SpritzerBy InStyle.com | Beauty – Fri, Sep 20, 2013 1:14 PM EDT

The fragrance world is getting busy with all the new fall items hitting store shelves, and in the weirdest launch we've seen yet, a toast-scented perfume made its debut at London Fashion Week. The fragrance, aptly-named Eau De Toast, was created by the UK Federation of Bakers, and contains notes of caramel, malt-and of course, bread. We've seen fragrances inspired by sunscreen and paper before, but toast definitely brings a new sort of gourmand scent to the table. A study published in the Journal of Social Psychology found that the smell of freshly-baked bread caused people to act kinder toward strangers, and while we're not sure if Eau De Toast's aroma will prompt someone to offer you their seat on the bus or train, you can request a sample at bakersfederation.org.uk to find out for yourself. But if smelling like a bakery isn't your thing, Bottega Veneta is offering up an opulent way to layer their signature scent with their Luxury Bath Collection. The range includes a body scrub,
