What do we think about the NEW Rock & Republic Kasandra Crown jeans, just released (pictured below), exclusively for ELuxury? They are making quite a stir among our HonestForum members who are whipping out their credit cards as we speak.
There’s also the R&R Crowns in the Bronze wash – which is too bronze for me personally which came out a few months ago.
Also, LOVE the new Rock & Republic Fallon Shorts! So cute for summer!
And last but not least, my personal fave of the new Rock & Republic styles, the Halen Slim Bootcut in Stranded Wire wash. Very rock n’ roll, but wow – are Rocks getting more expensive or is it just us? $341 for these babies! Why are they so much higher than other styles that are in the $250 range?
Normally, most celebrity fragrances (and denim lines from celebs too!) go the way of the TJ Maxx clearance bin shortly after being introduced. But with Justin Timberlake’s success with his denim line, William Rast, and his new partnership with Givenchy, maybe his new venture will succeed. Mr. Timberlake is said to be the new face of Givenchy’s new line but it isn’t exactly clear whether the fragrance will carry his name or not…Eau de Timberlake perhaps?
It’s dollars and scents for Justin Timberlake. The full-time pop star, part-time clothing designer and occasional actor inked a deal last week to be the face of Parfums Givenchy’s new men’s fragrance, set to launch in the autumn.
The deal should raise the cachet and earnings of the stylish star, who raked in $20 million last year, placing him 34th on Forbes’ list of the 100 Most Powerful Celebrities.
How much will Timberlake earn from smiling for the cameras? LVMH, which owns Givenchy, hasn’t disclosed the terms of their deal.
However, a number of top-rank celebrities have earned over $10 million for signing on as a spokesmodel. Angelina Jolie took home a reported $12 million in a three-year-deal with clothing label St. John, while Gwyneth Paltrow reportedly earns $3 million per year shilling for Estée Lauder.
Juno won for best picture and best actress for Ellen Page, the young Halifax actress who’s wowed Hollywood with her spirited lead performance in the teen pregnancy movie. Page, who just turned 21, beat out Hollywood heavyweights Angelina Jolie and Parker Posey, among other more experienced actresses, for her turn as a feisty 16-year-old who finds herself knocked up by her best friend.
Editor’s Note: If you haven’t seen Juno yet, put it on your must-see list – it was excellently done. Props to Ellen!
