If you’re into collectibles, listen up. Gwen Stefani has five brand-new Harajuku lovers for your collection, and they’re beyond adorable.To spice up the winter line, Snow Bunnies, she’s created the Sunshine Cuties. “We wanted to change up the outfits, because that’s what they are — little fashion plates,” said Gwen. Each of the five personalities — Love, L’il Angel, Music, Baby, and G — are based on summer scents, complete with floral accents in their hair and precious little bikinis. Singer-turned-designer Ms. Stefani described her own little doll’s outfit as such: “It’s the ‘Alice in Wonderland’ version of a bathing suit,” and admitted that she developed the line on tour, proving that multitasking is a skill she’s mastered. She’s even looking into designing more jewelry come spring, as well as a stationary line. “Eventually, I’d love to do everything,” she said. “But I want to do it right — I want to be totally involved with it all.” Keep reading »
Win a prize, cop a feel! Claw vending machines in Japan have been known to offer bizarre-o prizes like live crabs or turtles, cigarettes, underwear, power drills and packages of American $2 notes—so, by comparison, these busty stress relief balls seem vaguely normal. Or not. [Inventorspot] Keep reading »

I don’t know about you, but I don’t hang on to lipsticks for long. They get lost in bar bathrooms, left in handbags, or simply fall off the face of the earth. And, of course, I can never remember the name of the shade that was oh-so-flattering. So, instead of losing time and money trying various colors until I find the right one yet again, I now keep a Word document with all the names of the lipstick colors, concealer tones, and eye creams I like but don’t buy often enough to remember off the top of my head. Thank you, “Products I Like” file, for reminding me that Clinique Long Last Soft Matte Lipstick in Berry Berry is my favorite lip color, because I lost another tube of it this week. Keep reading »
So we already know the “Melrose Place” thing didn’t quite work out for Ashlee Simpson. But that clearly hasn’t kept her up at night worrying about future career plans. Because she’s going to be a designer! She’s a celebrity, are you really surprised? Right, so her new collection is supposed to be a “mix of preppy and punk” apparently, and she’s totally sure her pieces will be huge sellers. Huh. If her new black hair is any indication of her clothing line inspiration, we’re dubious. [Us Weekly, Contact Music] Keep reading »

This week Leonardo DiCaprio got “busted” laying down some serious coinage for a variety of skincare products, including eye creams, toner, face masks and anti-wrinkle potions, at the Blue Mercury boutique in Los Angeles. While his reps insisted that he bought them for a lady friend (Lindsay Lohan mayhaps?), what dude buys wrinkle creams for his girlfriend? And a fellow shopper claimed he was asking the salespeople an awful lot of questions about how the formulas worked. We’re not surprised–it’s not like guys are immune to the pressure to look young in Hollywood–and, like so many of us, Leo continues to grow older. Sigh. But, considering most dermatologists think the majority of cosmetic anti-wrinkle creams are total B.S., we think he could’ve saved himself and his fine lines a lot of money. I mean, has anyone here found a wrinkle cream that actually works? What’s the most you’ve ever spent on a mad beauty-product shopping spree? [Examiner] Keep reading »
Yes, that’s a shot of the late Yves Saint Laurent‘s former “country home.” But really, would you expect anything less from one of the most luxe fashion designers of all time? The mansion in Deauville, France, is dripping with extravagance, and now you can get a look inside and even own a piece of it — Christie’s is auctioning off the wares inside. Granted, you have to be pretty wealthy to take part (sigh, as always).
But the eclectic collection of furniture and decorative accents makes for entertaining viewing pleasure. Feast your eyes on an elk chandelier, Grecian urns, and tons of Rococo furniture. Our favorite item, however, has to be a collection of porcelain bulldogs. So random! (Yet weirdly chic as well.) Some more pics after the jump! [Paris By Appointment Only] Keep reading »
Over at Kingdom of Style, Queen Michelle points to the amazing jewelry designs of Renee Andriole. From the I Dare You collection, the piece you see here is a long blade knife ring made of sterling silver and brass bolts. “This ring alludes to the beauty within the danger,” Andriole notes. One best be careful when armed with this wearable art. Or, you could opt for the slightly safer smaller blade. [Kingdom of Style] Keep reading »
