Katie Holmes And Victoria Beckham Make Love To The Camera

Besties Katie Holmes and Victoria Beckham both have major ad campaigns coming out shot by famed photography duo Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. The first photos were just released (above), and they’ve actually made us remember why these ladies are celebrities. Sure, Katie looks a little possessed, and Victoria looks a little dead, but don’t they seem glamorous? (And by glamorous, we mean bored out of their minds.) We might not even mind being married to Tom Cruise if we got to wear that Miu Miu dress Katie has on. [Vogue UK] Keep reading »

Crave: Secret Garden Charm Key And Locket Earrings

Lulu Frost is a super-cool jewelry company that incorporates old hotel room numbers, antique charms, and rhinestone belt buckles into new necklaces, earrings, and bracelets. The only thing is, it’s a little too expensive for us, especially since the economy tanked. But now we can get budget-friendly pieces with the same family heirloom-feel from Lulu Frost’s Urban Outfitters line, Secret Garden. Oh, Lulu, how we love you! [$24, Urban Outfitters] Keep reading »

Look Like Barbie! At Least In The Face

Barbie gets everything. Really, it’s not fair. Sure, it’s her 50th birthday this year, but, jeez, she is getting the coolest presents! Besides a fashion show during New York Fashion week and a customized pair of Christian Louboutin shoes, Barbie also gets a collection of makeup by Stila. The limited edition series features four “Decades of Beauty” cans: #1 Ponytail Barbie from 1959, Malibu Barbie from 1971, Foxy Doll from 1980, and Jewel Doll from 2000. Stila also will launch a version of its talking palette with tips on how to get the “Barbie look.” The products will be at Sephora starting next month, though neither will make your boobs as big, your boyfriend as coiffed, or your house as pink as Barbie’s. Sigh. [WWD] Keep reading »

Orla Kiely To Design Line For Target

Sure, we said we were totally over designer collaborations with mass-market retailers, but every one in a while there will be one that makes us want to run, not walk, to Target. This is one of them. British designer Orla Kiely, who makes delightfully colorful clothes, accessories, and home goods, will bring her cheery brand of housewares to Target next month! Our kitchen just got a whole lot happier. [Apartment Therapy] Keep reading »

Decorate Your Cake With Class

Most cake toppers are cheesy, and some are just plain tasteless. But there are a few that will make your cake look lovely, not tacky. Goose Greese customizes little wooden dolls to look like the bride and groom. Aren’t they charming? At $50, they better be. And if you’re on the hunt early for a little Valentine’s Day gift that’s less expensive, they also make little dolls with “conversation heart” messages such as “Love Bug” and “Be Mine” for just $10. I might have to buy the “You Rule” one as a pick-me-up for myself. [Goose Greese on Etsy via Design Sponge] Keep reading »

Crave: Alex & Chloe Paperclip Necklace

We left our big ol’ vintage costume jewelry in the dust after falling in love with minimalist jewelry designers Alex & Chloe. What’s not to love? Simple jewelry goes with everything, which means you can wear it more often and thus not feel as guilty about spending $100 on a necklace. This Paperclip necklace, which comes in sterling silver, oxidized silver, and 14k gold, is perfect for the office-supply lover in all of us. [$100, Alex & Chloe] Keep reading »

Poll: Who Was The Best Dressed At The Golden Globes?

Get Rid Of That Thrift Store Smell

When we gave you tips for thrift store shopping last month, our experts advised you to stay away from clothes that have a certain stink to them, because the smell probably won’t go away. Well, Janie Bryant, the costume designer for “Mad Men,” says otherwise. Her trick for getting rid of that musty, old-clothes stench is to mix one part vodka with two parts water in a spray bottle and douse the offending article with the mixture. “It works every time—that’s the power of vodka for you,” Bryant said. And we believe anything this woman says. After all, she’s managed to make pen necklaces popular, a feat not accomplished since the TV show “Ghostwriter” in the ’90s. [Valet] Keep reading »

Cheapskate: HSN Jewelry Can Be Cute And Inexpensive

I’ve been having trouble sleeping lately, so I’ve been watching a lot of late night TV. HSN, formerly Home Shoppers Network, has become one of my favorite networks because the sales are always a surprise. Sure, the hosts sell a lot of mattresses and frumpy clothing, but oftentimes, the jewelry is rather genius. HSN hipped me to stainless steel jewelry that is cute and affordable. And unlike other costume jewelry, stainless steel jewelry will never turn, rust or lose its luster. Keep reading »

Crave: Ted Gibson Body Kit (Win One!)

Taking showers during the winter is no fun. The water takes forever to heat up, and after you’re finally all fresh and clean, you have to put on buckets of lotion in a freezing cold apartment. Well, hairstylist extraordinaire Ted Gibson has a line of body shampoos and conditioners that might make us a little more fond of showering, even when it’s cold. While body conditioner might seem silly, it means you can skip the après-shower lotion step. Genius! [$42, TedGibsonBeauty.com]

We’re giving away five Ted Gibson Body Kits , but you have to work if you want one. The five best commenters for this coming week — from today, Friday, Jan. 9 through Thursday, Jan. 15 — will be awarded with a set, which includes three body shampoos and three body conditioners. So, be as clever, smart, and original as you can! Click HERE to read the official rules. Keep reading »
