More Stuff You Don't Need

Victoria Beckham paired up with former Luella and Marc by Marc Jacobs accessories designer Katie Hillier to create a collection of bags with a severe edge. Two of the styles–the leather and nubuck shoulder bag and the hexagonal chain bag in crocodile (above) – went on sale yesterday at Net-a-Porter. The leather and nubuck sold out within the hour. The nearly USD14,000 crocodile bag (right) sold out by the afternoon. The collection comprises of six styles ranging in price from USD1,800 to USD13,950. The stuff will be in stores later this month.And then there's the Tom Ford line of lipsticks called (pompously) the Tom Ford Private Blend Lip Color Collection. Each of the 12 scented shades is full of rich, natural ingredients, including soja seed extract, Brazilian murumuru butter and chamomilla flower oil. Said to be incredibly moisturizing, and wears for hours and smooth as silk (blah blah blah). USD 45. And that looks like Jon Jon's nose and mouth doesn't it?

  2. Dear EA: The more i look at this image the more i like it - it's not entirely clear that jon jon is not reaching out for the lipstick for himself with his glossy nails. His is a girl's face with stubble - amazing!
