Fashion News Roundup: Madonna Makes Out with Herself in New Fragrance Ad, Rodarte is Designing for the NYC Ballet, and Adam Levine Wants You to Smell Like His 'Personality'

Madonna Makes Out with Herself in Her Fragrance Ad: Here's the ad for Madonna's Truth or Dare fragrance, featuring the creator (who has "always been obsessed with fragrance") on the verge of making out with herself. There's no doubt Madge looks fab here, but also at least 20 years younger than her actual age (53)-- we dare you to find an un-retouched pixel. Truth or Dare is available April 1 at Macy's. {US Weekly} Adam Levine has Got the Scent Like Jagger: Following in the manly, fragrant footsteps of Bruce Willis comes another (albeit a little less macho) perfume from Maroon 5 and The Voice's Adam Levine. The scents for both men and women, named '222', will be out next year and will "reflect Levine's personality and style.” Market research is a fascinating thing. {Refinery29} Spanx Creator is a Young Billionairess: Forbes has named Spanx inventor Sara Blakely as the world's youngest female self-made billionaire. Apparently, Blakely once dreamt of playing Goofy at Disney World but was a bit too short for the highly regarded role-- Gawrsh, wonder who's laughing now? {Jezebel}

Natalie Portman and Rodarte Return to the Ballet: Could it be? A real-life Black Swan redux? Rodarte, NatPort, and her baby daddy Benjamin Millepied will once again join forces for the sake of ballet-- this time for the NYC Ballet's 2012 Spring Gala, which is a tribute to Millepied's home country of France. The Mulleavys (along with Gilles Mendel) will design the sure-to-be gorgeous costumes and Ben will choreograph, but it looks like there won't be many plies for our fair Natalie, who will serve as "honorary chairman." Which mostly requires... sitting in a chair. {Elle}

Vera Wang Now Makes Color Cosmetics: Next month, the 74-piece Simply Vera Vera Wang color cosmetics collection will launch exclusively at Kohl's. Wang's relationship with Kohl's dates back to 2007 and has produced apparel, accessories, footwear and home goods- though she is undoubtedly most loved for her wedding dress designs, which this makeup line compeiments perfectly. Will this woman please just release a ready-made wedding kit already? {WWD}

Courrèges Cars, Coming to a Road Near You: The iconic '60s brand was only brought back last year, but now its new owners (Jacques Bungert and Frédéric Torloting) are planning to speed up the relaunch process-- in the form of a Courrèges car. The line's original founders conceived a vehicle prototype in 1968, and now more than 40 years later, it might actually become a reality. Assuming, of course, there have been some major safety standard updates put in place! Like, you know, seat belts... {Vogue UK}

UK Jeans Brand Dirties Reputation with Anti-Feminist Washing Label: British brand Madhouse has received major criticism for a lame attempt at humor humour on its denim washing labels, which include instructions to "Give it to your woman, it's her job." Feminists and humans in general are horrified and offended at this seemingly backwards way of looking at imposed societal roles... but could it be possible that "your woman" is some new, hip UK slang for "your dry cleaner"? Maybe? No? {Telegraph}
