Fashion week saw plenty of fragrance deals Tuesday — or at least talk of them, including two designers and one megacelebrity: none other than Madonna.
The Estée Lauder Cos. Inc. confirmed it has signed a fragrance license with Marni, while speculation swirled Tory Burch could be the next brand to join the Lauder fragrance stable even as she is also said to be in talks with Coty. Fueling the talk of a possible Burch-Lauder license was the appearance of Fabrizio Freda, president and chief executive officer at the Estée Lauder Cos., and Aerin Lauder, creative director and chairman of Aerin LLC, at the designer’s first runway show on Tuesday morning.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
