Karrueche Tran’s Debut Line: The Kill

You might not remember her by her name (or, in fact, face), but if we told you she’s Chris Brown’s ex-girlfriend, you’ll probably go “oh her.”  Well, Tran is currently busy with her new venture, and that is using her new-found fame to launch her own clothing line, The Kill.

Tran linked arms with Chris Brown’s stylists, Ugo Mozie and MiMi Gazelle, in doing the collection, and managed to shoot a video in Paris to promote the line when she was still with Chris Brown. If you wonder what happened to The Kill post-Brown and Tran breakup, we assure you that if anything, it only gives the brand free publication. Chris Brown has been posting photos of some of the line’s products on his Instagram account, and here’s one of the pictures.

Do you like what you see, and will you be buying stuff from The Kill?

Eden Wood Launches New Dresses for Her Clothing Line

Eden Wood 003

When they say start small, they might not mean be born in 2005 and start your own clothing line.  But everything seems to be going well for Toddlers and Tiaras star, Eden Wood, who in her tender age of six, has accomplished many things.  One of which is launching her own clothing line, The Eden Wood Line, just recently.

Wood has been the inspiration of many child star wannabes across the country ever since her appearance on the TLC TV show, and this prompted her mother, Mickie Wood, to design some frocks. Cindy Jeffers transformed the sketches into wearable dresses. Most of which have been worn by Eden to high-profile events.

Think your toddler would want some Eden Wood flavor on their wardrobe?  You can check out the collection at OfficialEdenWood.com and email the company to get the price quotes.

“Dump Trump” Petition to Kick Donald Trump Off Macy’s Holiday Ad

Donald Trump appeared on Macy’s holiday TV ad, and it seems like many people were bothered, especially Angelo Carusone. The director of Media Matters has started a petition that’s pushing Macy’s to dump the billionaire from the ad due to The Donald’s bad behaviors (that are of course, not very Christmas-y), as listed in the petition background:

Donald Trump engages in especially unpleasant, nasty and despicable behavior. He has:

– Long engaged in sexist behavior. Trump has a long record of personally attacking women he disagrees by calling them “unattractive,” ugly or fat. He once sent a target a personal note telling her that she has the “face of a dog.” Not even his own daughter is immune to Trump’s sexism. While referring to his daughter, Trump observed: “She does have a very nice figure…if [she] weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her.”

– Hypocritically complained about jobs being shipped overseas to China, despite the fact that almost his entire clothing line sold at Macy’s is made in China and other Asian nations.

– Use his public platform to deny the reality of climate change. Following Hurricane Sandy, Trump publicly declared: “The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.”

– Perpetuated the racially charged birther conspiracy, repeatedly arguing that President Obama has been lying and was not born in the United States.

The list goes on. But the point remains, Macy’s should dump Trump.

So far, neither Trump nor Macy’s show any intention of cutting off their collaboration. Macy’s responded to the petition, saying:

“Macy’s marketing and merchandise offerings are not representative of any political position. Many of the individuals associated with products sold at Macy’s – or at any retailer, for that matter – express personal opinions that are not related to the merchandise we sell or to the philosophies of our company. In our merchandise assortment, we strive to meet our customers’ expectations for unique and interesting products across a broad array of styles, categories and brands. This allows our customers to choose what they prefer. A longtime focus of Macy’s holiday advertising has been to celebrate the season’s spirit of generosity and goodwill through our ongoing ‘Believe’ campaign, and that is the sole message of our holiday television commercials.”

Meanwhile, Trump spokesman Michael Cohen told TODAY.com:

“The Trump Organization values its long standing relationship with Macy’s and looks forward to many more years of continued success.”

Do you think Donald Trump is the only one that should be dumped? What about Martha Stewart? We love the ad nonetheless, but tell us: do you agree with Carusone?

Modern Family star, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and his fiance Justin Mikita are not just tying the knot, they’ve also launched their line of bow ties. The bow tie line was launched Wednesday, via their Tie the Knot Foundation, which emphasizes on the fight for marriage equality.

Ferguson told PEOPLE magazine:

“It’s just a fun way to spruce up an outfit. Men don’t get fun, exciting things to wear.”

The Tie Bar will hold exclusive rights to sell the bow ties online, and there will only be 20 exclusive designs with only 200 pieces available. However, both Mikita and Ferguson hope the demand will rise.

Mikita said:

“We wanted them to be unique and limited edition. But hopefully we will sell out.”

Will you be getting Tie the Knot collection?  We think it would be a thoughtful gift for the holidays!

If you still can’t figure out how to tie a bow tie, Jesse shows you the ropes:

The Perfume for Strong Women: Demi Moore for Oriflame

Demi Moore Oriflame


Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher might be over, but she still has something to be happy about. The Hollywood actress has taken Sweden by storm. She was tapped by Swedish cosmetic company, Oriflame, to collaborate with them to create a perfume dedicated to strong, successful women. Oriflame believes that Moore projects the image flawlessly.

The perfume titled “More” by Demi, is one of the brand’s most premium collections, and there will be more than just perfume. The line will also consist of a selection of exquisite make-up, elegant accessories and jewelry, created especially for modern women.

Moore expressed her excitement about the collaboration:

“It was so exciting to team up with Oriflame and together we’ve created indulgent beauty products and on-trend sophisticated accessories that every woman will adore. As an actress, I absolutely loved playing the fairy tale characters and hope that women everywhere can be the star of their own fairy tale!”

“More by Demi” collection was launched back in October 2012, but will continue releasing new products up to January 2013.

Ke$ha to Create Faux-Fur Clothing Line

Humane Society International’s ambassador, singer Ke$ha, wouldn’t be caught dead wearing real fur as she loves animals. However, she doesn’ throw flour to other celebs who don real fur, instead she’s trying to offer a friendlier fashion alternative: faux fur. Ke$ha has her own views about loving animals, but staying fashionable at the same time:

“I don’t condemn people for their choices but my own personal choice is that I prefer to wear fake fur. I’m actually working on my own fake fur line. There are so many options that are very real-feeling and looking that aren’t harming the animal, so it’s a no-brainer for me.”

We seriously think her idea is awesome. And as why she joined Humane Society International to protect animals, Ke$ha said:

“It meant so, so much as I’ve always loved animals since I was little. I just feel super connected to them. The most enlightening thing I can do is be around animals. I just love them, my heart melts.”

Awww… that’s so very sweet of you, Ke$ha. We’ll have to wait for her line to drop, and while we wait, we can’t help but wonder… will Kim Kardashian wear Ke$ha’s faux fur? Will Kanye let her?


Hot Watch: David Beckham for Breitling!

David Beckham Breitling


We know you want him close to being naked again, but this time, David Beckham chooses to show us how hot he can be modeling watches. Beckham recently signed on as watchmaker Breitling’s new face, and he recently shot the ad series for the Breitling Caliber B05.

Taking place on the Mojave Air & Space Port in California, Beckham starred in the brand’s new video for the watch. Beckham also noted that he’s had his heart set on Breitling watches for a long time.

“I’ve been a longtime admirer of Breitling. It was a natural choice for me to partner with this fantastic brand.”

See what happens behind-the-scenes as Beckham does his best poses for Breitling, and we seriously think Mathieu Pradinaud did an awesome job.

“Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2″ Jewelry by Damiani

Breaking Dawn 2

Summit Entertainment

The Twilight saga’s last episode Breaking Dawn: Part 2 is finally here and all things related to the movie are hot right now, including Damiani’s “Aro Necklace.” The Italian jewelry maker created the necklace for the character Aro (leader of the Volturi vampire clan), who gives it to Bella Swan as a wedding gift.


Damiani obviously read Stephenie Meyer’s book and paid extra attention to the necklace’s details, wrapping a large round diamond in a burnished brown gold setting. Some said it’s not the “golf ball” diamond Meyer had imagined, but it fits well on Bella Swan and Edward Cullen’s daughter, Renesmee Cullen (Mackenzie Foy).

Do you think the necklace is fit for vampire royalty?


Penelope Cruz, New Face of Loewe

Looks like Agent Provocateur isn’t the only fashion house that has eyes for Penelope Cruz. The actress has been appointed by Spanish leather goods brand Loewe. Cruz has signed a lucrative three-year deal with Loewe, and from the looks of it, the brand’s bigshots are in love with not only her looks but also her work.

Stuart Vevers, Loewe’s creative director stated:

“Penelope is Spain’s most famous woman. For us to collaborate feels right and natural. I always start with the woman and a character. I find film very useful as a fictional character can be liberating creatively. Pedro Almodóvar’s work is a constant reference and Penelope’s characters in his films have often been an inspiration — the strength and complexity they have. I am a big fan of Penélope’s work.”

The first advertising campaign featuring Cruz will be shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot and will be launched in spring 2013. Looking at Penelope and her creativity, we hope she’ll try to design a line for Loewe. Now THAT would propel her designer career into another level!
