We know we cover celebrity-created fashion, but this we couldn’t resist! Word on the fashion avenue is… Brad Pitt is coming out with his own furniture line. The actor teamed up with furniture maker Frank Pollaro, creating a furniture line consisting of a dining table, cocktail table, side tables, club chairs, and a bathtub for two made from Statuario Venato marble.

Pitt told Architectural Digest that he has been doodling for furniture and buildings since about twenty years ago;

“I’ve been doodling ideas for buildings and furniture since the early 1990s, when I first discovered [Charles Rennie] Mackintosh and Frank Lloyd Wright. Actually, I found Wright in college, when looking for a lazy two-point credit to get out of French. It forever changed my life.”

Pitt has created the “Make It Right” Foundation to build quality affordable housing for the Hurricane Katrina survivors in New Orleans, and the foundation hired prominent architects for the task. Despite his attempt at design, Pitt is yet to approve his new title as ‘furniture designer’. He says, “Let’s not get ahead of ourselves.”

Amy Winehouse’s Dresses Stolen

As if her death wasn’t tragic enough, now TWO of Amy Winehouse’s dresses worth about $208,000 have been stolen from the house she died in. The dresses were supposed to be auctioned to raise funds for the Amy Winehouse Foundation.

Just how special were the dresses?

The wedding dress was worn by Winehouse when she and husband Blake Fielder exchanged vows in Miami back in 2006, while the other one she wore on Jools Holland’s BBC music show, also in 2006. The unique newsprint cocktail dress made quite an impression among her fans.

Mitch Winehouse, Amy’s father said the robbery is a blow.

“The house in Camden is being sold so all of her possessions have been tagged, numbered and logged in preparation of storage. There was a window of about two days while that process was underway when the dresses could have been taken. A few people were involved and there was some coming and going. We’re going through everything else to see what else, if anything, has been lifted. We are all baffled as to why some of her designer dresses didn’t go too. There were a couple from Dolce & Gabbana worth a fortune. Her wedding dress was only a little cotton thing, a hundred quid at best in the shops. Whoever nicked it realised its significance and knew it had an extra value. It’s sickening that someone would steal something in the knowledge of its sentimental value.”

Very sad.

L’Oréal Paris appointed its new spokeswoman for an upcoming anti-aging skincare line called Cellular Renaissance: Julianne Moore. The actress said she’s been a loyal L’Oréal user, and that she wants to share the brand’s universal appeal across ages and ethnicities.

“I’m an actual user of the brand and it’s hard not to be. Every modern woman shops everywhere for beauty, but for me it’s mostly the airport or the drugstore. It’s nice to be promoting something that is accessible to everyone.”

Karen Fondu, president of L’Oréal Paris USA said that Moore is:

“an inspiration to women all over the world. She is undeniably one of the most accomplished women of her time — an award-winning actress, children’s book author and supporter of several philanthropic efforts close to her heart. Julianne is the perfect addition to our family of spokespeople.”

Moore, who’s of Scottish descent, is no stranger to beauty regimens:

“My mother was from Scotland and had very fair skin. She wouldn’t allow us to go in the sun,” She also gave a tip to her fans to always use a washcloth to cleanse the face. “It’s an old-fashioned beauty tip for exfoliating.”

Moore is also said to be representing hair color products from L’Oréal, however the brand won’t disclose the line just yet.

Congratulations for the new appointment!

Long gone are her Wizards of Waverly Place days, as Selena Gomez climbs the stairs of celebhood slowly but steadily. Her love life with pop icon Justin Bieber does not even shadow her other achievements in life, like her band The Scene, her film Spring Breakers, and many more.

She’s now one of the most recognizable faces splashed across magazine pages. When Glamour announced the 2012 Women of the Year, it was no surprise that Selena was on the list. The young star wows her fans on the cover of Glamour where she wears a champagne silk gown reminiscent of classic Hollywood.

Behind the beautiful face and glamorous life, Selena also has a huge heart. She’s known to be the youngest-ever US UNICEF Ambassador, visiting Ghana on behalf of the UN and taking part in the Global Poverty Project’s “Live Below The Line.” She even spent a week living with only $1.50 a day.

Selena isn’t the sole star of Glamour‘s  tribute to beauty. The U.S. Women’s gymnastics team, which won gold medal at the Olympics, also received the award, along with photographer Annie Liebowitz, and many more.

Before Kate Middleton and Mariah Carey, Black Eyed Peas’ vocalist Fergie has already collaborated with nail lacquer brand, Wet n Wild. She’s been having a great time being the brand’s ambassador since earlier this year, but although she’s all about the crazy colors, she needs the classics as well.

“I can do the fun glitters and shimmers on stage. But at the same time, I need my classic colors, too. Whoever I’m going to be on a given day, I want my makeup to fit.”

This season, Fergie and Wet n Wild are launching their new line of cosmetics that includes eye shadow palettes, lipsticks, eyeliners, nail polishes, and many more. Fergie said:

“This is a big deal for me and for my fans,” she shares. “It’s something we both relate to because we both love the colors and we both love the price point.”

Other than the five-colored shadow palettes and elegantly packaged eyeliners and lip colors, the one feature Fergie is most proud of is that the line is sweat-proof. She said:

“I thought, if we’re going to make it better, let’s really make it better.”

Fergie also involved her mom and girlfriends to name each of the products.

“We had so much fun with that. Going through each of the colors, it was like, ‘What does this mean to me? Well this reminds me of this.’ I have different stories for each one of them.”

Kylie Minogue has been known for her bright career in the entertainment world, and since her first appearance, it’s now her 25th year as a performer! To celebrate and commemorate her quarter of a century of being in the spotlight, Kylie will release a book featuring 25 years of fashion throughout her career.

Kylie told Vogue:

“This book charts my relationship with some of the most talented people in fashion throughout my career. It makes me very proud to see gathered together all the great designers and houses I’ve worked with over the years. Looking through my personal archives has been a real trip down memory lane and it is the fashion that brings back moments and memories of the last 25 years.”

The book features Kylie Minogue’s style retrospect, which includes her many stage costumes and outfits she donned in her music videos. Still can’t get over how dramatic her Grecian-inspired designs from her Aphrodite world tour? Or probably the white catsuit from the “Can’t Get You Out of My Head” video? You’ll find them all in the book. Fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier wrote the foreword of the book that is titled Kylie/Fashion, and in it you’ll also find commentaries from Kylie Minogue and her creative director, William Baker.

Kylie/Fashion will be released November 19, however you can pre-order now via Amazon.

 

Smells Good: Robert Pattinson for Christian Dior Fragrances

Just in time for his mega-hit movie to launch, Twilight actor Robert Pattinson scored a mega-deal with cosmetics giant, Christian Dior. Pattinson will star in a series of ad campaigns for Dior’s line of men’s fragrances. The perk is: he’s doing it because he likes the brand.

We’re jealous!

The deal is being estimated closely worth to $12 million for three years. And that, darling readers, is WAY higher than what Brad Pitt received for his Chanel No. 5 fragrance deal. Pitt only received $7 million.

Ouch to Brad Pitt.

Pattinson joins other celebs who have endorsed Dior’s fragrances like Natalie Portman—who you might still remember appeared topless in the ad last year, Charlize Theron, and Jude Law.

Congrats, Robert Pattinson!
