Justin Bieber in Ray Ban Sunglasses


Justin Bieber recently put men twice his age to shame in the “romance” department. The epic pop singer treated his lucky lady love and fellow pop singer Selena Gomez to an extravagant night at the Staples Center–ALONE.  This intimate evening he planned for Gomez and himself should go down in a “How to Woo a Lady” manual and guys everywhere will be cursing Justin under their breath. Ok picture it: Staples Center with its 20,000 seats completely empty of all spectators, athletes and personnel; Center court with an intimate table set for two under candle light; a night of fine dining and even a classic romance movie–Titianic– rolling while the pair dine on steak and pasta from the Lexus Club. Ahhh, young love. (sigh)

The cost, you ask? Obviously the Staple Center is not available to just any Joe-Schmo who wants to impress their date. Sorry, fellas. But if  you’re a high profile pop star who has sold out the Staples Center on three separate occasions, you can have the keys to the arena for FREE.  And to put things even further out of reach, the Lexus Club  is a members-only restaurant. But with an annual salary of $53 million, the “Never Say Never” singer can clearly afford things that most can only dream of. Perhaps they were also celebrating Selena’s newest gig: she can now add Awards Show host to her resume as of this November. Rocking headlines is the news that Gomez is going to host the 2011 MTV European Music Awards on November 6. Here Justin is rock star chic in classic Ray Ban wayfarers.  –rpuccia

Pippa Middleton in Gucci Sunglasses

Royal wedding fever has—thankfully—died down, but Kate Middleton’s sis Pippa is still causing a media frenzy months after she came close to stealing the bride’s thunder on the big day in her white curve-hugging Alexander McQueen gown. Women ‘round the globe are becoming more obsessed with the gorgeous brunette every minute, clamoring for all things Pippa. Her designer outfits, shoes, spectacular accessories, and glowing suntan have become quite popular among the fashion-conscious ladies out there, and now her derriere is making headlines, too. Yep, you read that right—your eyes aren’t playing tricks on you. According to an ABC News report, prospective patients are visiting plastic surgeons and requesting the “Pippa Butt Lift.”

Dr. Constantino Mendieta, a Miami cosmetic surgeon and author of The Art of Gluteal Sculpting, told TV’s Good Morning America that about 80 percent of his “work” is butt lifts, and roughly 20 percent are modeled after Pippa. One of his patients was reportedly willing to go under the knife for Pippaesque curves, claiming that “If [Pippa] can look petite and have a great backside to her, so can I.” We can’t help you out in the rear end department, but Pippa’s adorable Gucci sunglasses are available with Havana brown or shiny black frames—not quite the same as a new bum, but Pippa-worthy nonetheless.

Renee Zellweger in Tom Ford Sunglasses


Renee Zellweger made an appearance in the 90s rom-com / drama Reality Bites alongside Winona Ryder, Ethan Hawke and Ben Stiller and can also be seen in the rodeo champion bio 8 Seconds with Luke Perry, but she “had us at hello” in the 1996 blockbuster Jerry Maguire thanks to her role as Tom Cruise’s character’s love interest. After Jerry, Renee received two Academy Award nominations for Best Actress for her roles as Bridget Jones in Bridget Jones’s Diary in 2001 and Roxie Hart in 2002’s Chicago. She finally snagged that Oscar in 2003 for her Best Supporting Actress performance in Cold Mountain, which co-starred Jude Law and Nicole Kidman.

Renee slipped back into her role of Ms. Jones in 2004 for Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason and despite the fact that the sequel received negative reviews from the press, it’s just been announced that a third installment of the series is in the works. Colin Firth confirmed that a script has been written for Bridget Jones 3 and says he’s eager to reprise his role as Bridget’s true love Mark Darcy. It’ll be great to watch Colin on the big screen alongside Hugh Grant, who also starred in the first two movies with Renee, who is seen here in a pair of oversized Tom Ford sunglasses that add a touch of glam to her casual workout gear. The shades are available in four frame / lens color combos.

Paris Hilton in Gucci Sunglasses


Oh what to do when your reputation here at home has taken a turn to that of a stale, less-than-serious socialite? Take it overseas, that’s what. While Paris Hilton’s star has faded here in the States, no one can deny that the 30-year-old has built quite the brand abroad. She debuted a new line of handbags and accessories at a mall in Mumbai, India, this past weekend as part of a tour of the country that lasted three days. She also recently introduced her shoe line in Istanbul, Turkey, and when asked about her business savvy during a press conference for the launch, she sounded dead-serious (for once): “For a woman today in this world to be successful, it really takes a lot of dedication and work, believing in yourself, having confidence. I get the drive from my family. Growing up in the Hilton family, I have a lot to live up to. It just runs in my blood, watching my grandfather, my great grandfather, what they’ve created, I wanted to create something of my own, so I’ve created my own brand.” Boy, has she ever!

The company Brand Concepts plans to open eight Paris Hilton stores — which will sell her handbags and accessories — throughout India by March. And it sounds like the former reality star has plenty of other big plans in the works as well. Paris recently revealed that she’s also recording a new album (really?), writing a book, producing TV shows and movies, and “getting into real estate,” in addition to designing. Her global brand seems to have no bounds, as does her chic collection of shades, like these Gucci oversized sunglasses available in sleek black and havana frame hues.  –rpuccia

Minka Kelly in Ray Ban Sunglasses


Uber-gorgeous Charlie’s Angel star Minka Kelly, 31, recently confessed to David Letterman that when she was 19 she was approached by a former Playboy Playmate who offered to help jumpstart Minka’s career by getting her a job at a doctor’s office … which would most likely result in free plastic surgery. Minka took the job but left quickly because she realized that going under the knife just wasn’t for her. The funnyman late night talk show host assured Minka that she made the right choice, saying, “The stuff that you have is fine.”

Minka’s “stuff” is apparently so fine that an overzealous Charlie’s crew member reportedly slapped her on the rear end on the set of the new ABC show, a reboot of the original 1976 series of the same name. The network understandably has a zero-tolerance policy regarding sexual harassment, and TMZ claims that the “butt guy” was banned from the set even though Minka didn’t want him to get fired and was upset that he lost his job.

Not only does she seem like a confident, down-to-earth chick, Minka Kelly is hands-down one of the hottest women in entertainment today. Seen here sporting a pair of rockin’ Ray Ban sunglasses, we can definitely say we’re glad she turned down the plastic surgery all those years ago.
