10 Celebrity Brides Who Wore Monique Lhuillier

Over the weekend, Reese Witherspoon tied the knot for the second time, marrying agent Jim Toth in front of family and friends. The bride wore Monique Lhuillier, who has quickly become the go-to designer for celebrity brides who don’t want to wear Wang (that would be Vera). Reese seems like a pretty private person, so I’m not sure that we’ll ever get a good look at her wedding dress, but while I hold out hope she’ll do a big ol’ spread in People, here are 10 other celebrity brides who donned Monique Lhuillier on their big day. (Perk of doing this slideshow — I finally feel confident that I can spell Lhuillier’s name from memory.)

His Royal Ginger Covers GQ

Let there be no further argument! Kate Middleton may have scored herself the heir, but Prince Harry is the royal who wasn’t spared anything in the hotness department. My only qualm with this cover of GQ UK — in which Harry discusses a planned trip to the North Pole to raise awareness about, um, something — is that it’s in black and white, so we can’t view his fire-y gingerness. Shame. [Dlisted] Keep reading »

Cleaning Up Spills Has Never Been So Zen


Call me crazy, but I have been utterly transfixed by this demo video for some magical contraption that cleans up condiment spills. Mind you, a swipe with a sponge will do the job fine, but if you want to pick up, say, the big glob of ketchup you dropped on the floor and keep it in the exact same formation, then this is the gadget for you.

Get Toxic With Illamasqua

Some women play it safe when it comes to nail color, and rarely go outside of their pink and red comfort zone. But this spring, Illamasqua wants you to engage in some toxic behavior with the new nail varnish collection, Toxic Nature. Like nature itself, this collection isn’t sweet and light. Instead colors like mushroom, mint, orange, rose, and plum are kicked up a notch with rich textures and pops of acid brightness. The Toxic Nature collection consists of five varnishes with names as interesting as the colors — Purity is a peach, Ochre Radium is an acid lime shimmer, Gamma is a neon orange, Bacterium is a pearlescent ash, and Stagnate is a gray mauve. Illamasqua has aggressively jumped into the high-end nail polish game, and says its polishes are hard-wearing, chip-resistant, and will last until you remove the polish. The Toxic Nature collection will be available at Sephora and Sephora.com beginning in April. Keep reading »

Justin Bieber And 10 Other Notorious Hollywood Pranksters

When you think about the “True Blood” set, you probably imagine lots of topless and bloody vampire boys, lounging around and feeding Anna Paquin grapes. But, apparently, it’s kind of a silly set and hottie Ryan Kwanten keeps everyone on their toes as the on-set prankster. His co-star Jim Parrack says, “He took our cameraman’s car and filled it with ladybugs. He goes all out … I think if Ryan could retire from acting and be a prankster. He would consider it.” [People]

I Need A Petite Lap Giraffe

The mini-lap giraffe in the DirecTV ads is now for sale! You can buy your lap giraffe today from Sokolovsky Farms, Russia’s finest purveyor of Petite Lap Giraffes. Ok, not really. It’s an ad campaign. But you can still waste time watching the little critters on a live web cam or finding out pet care tips at PetiteLapGiraffe.com. See “Vladimir” and other “PGLs” go about their daily business, like taking bubble baths, lounging on couches, and eating bonsai trees. Fun facts: A full-size adult PGL only grows to be about 30 inches tall and sleep in a box like a cat. I know, I’m in denial. I still think I’ll own one someday. It can happen.
