Salma Hayek may have recently admitted that she was acne-ridden and depressed for much of her 20s, but you wouldn't know it from looking at her these days. The woman is the very definition of a classic Hollywood glamour girl and she happens to be very dedicated to doing charity and good works, too.

Jared Leto Vs. James Franco: A Comparison

This may be a controversial and somewhat politically incorrect opinion, but I'll just say it: Jared Leto has aged to look like a female-to-male transsexual.

Do Not Want: Designer 3-D Glasses

Get ready for the next wave in fancy, useless, overpriced things: designer 3-D glasses. Apparently, Gucci is about to come out with some slick $225 aviators, while Armani is also planning a similar product (which will cost significantly less at $58, but still).

Jennifer Lopez Uses Kids To Sell Gucci, Raise Money For UNICEF

Gucci’s Spring 2010 Video Campaign Takes Place In A Screensaver

Behold Gucci's painfully awkward video campaign for the spring 2010 collection. This is the type of thing where we get what the company was going for, yet can't help but wonder how weird the filming must have been.

Angelina Jolie Slips Into Some Gucci

Most think of Gucci and see interlocking G’s, horsebit hobo bags, or that red and green stripe. But there’s an entire sordid past of the Gucci family, which Tom Ford and Frida Giannini have nothing to do with – and it’s not about design. In 1995, the heir to the Gucci throne, Maurizio Gucci,…
