You get a car! And you get a car! And you get a car!
And maybe youll get a car when Oprah Winfrey brings back her famous Favorite Things giveaway next month after a two-year absence.
In a special one-time event airing Nov. 18 on OWN, Oprah will reveal her list of gotta-haves for the holiday season. Her BFF Gayle King and designers Michael Kors and Tory Burch will help with the doling of the loot, including an over-the-top, top-secret prize.
And we cant even be jealous because the recipients will be military spouses from each branch of the Armed Forces. Ooh-rah.
Find out at Oprah.com/FavoriteThings how to score one of the prizes for yourself.
Apparently when shes not dating Kennedy boys, Taylor Swift is inking shoe deals. Shes just signed a three-year deal with Keds, which is releasing a limited-edition red shoe to mark next weeks debut of her album, Red.
Ive been a fan of Keds for years, Taylor says. I remember wearing Keds as a little kid, while riding my bike around the farm. When I got older, I started wearing them again I love pairing them with vintage looks.
The red Keds cost $50 at keds.com, taylorswift.com, nordstrom.com and journeys.com.
Best hair in Hollywood
We might be a little, uh, long in the tooth to be rockin red Keds. But shampoos? As evidenced by the dozen or so bottles in our shower, we are addicted. And if Jennifer Anistons new shampoo can make our hair looks like hers, were puntin the Pantene.
Jennifer has signed up as both spokesmodel for and investor in Living Proof, a Massachusetts-based line of hair care products created by scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Jennifer fell for the product while using it in humid North Carolina as she was making Were the Millers.
Shell start filming an ad campaign for the line in November.
Brads Chanel moment
And speaking of Jennifer Aniston, or at least her ex-husband
Brad Pitt recently debuted in ads for Chanel No. 5, becoming the first male spokesperson for the famous fragrance.
Sporting long hair and those sexy, smoldering Missouri-bred good looks, Brad appears in print ads and a 30-second video.
Looking longingly into the camera, he says: Its not a journey, every journey ends and we go on. Wherever I go, there you are.
Were not put off like some are by a man selling a womens fragrance. We just want to know: What the heck does that dialogue mean?
Smells like teen spirit
One Direction toothpaste. Check.
One Direction dolls. Check.
One Direction Ugg boots. Check.
One Direction perfume? Coming right up.
The boy-banders are releasing a womens fragrance in July 2013, according to Marie Claire UK. No name or details on what it will smell like have been released.
Our guess? It will smell like cash. Lots of it.
A plus for the Kardashians
The Kardashian sisters have chosen Los Angeles model Briana Harrington to pose in the plus-sized jeans they are adding to their Kardashian Kurves line at Sears.
The three jeans styles are named after each sister. The Khloe is a tall, curvy, high-rise, boot cut, and so on. In the first photos announcing the jeans in July, the sisters posed in their namesake denims, but later announced a nationwide search for a spokesmodel.
Celebrity blogger Janet Charlton commented, it IS amusing that the Kardashian sisters all felt they were far too tiny to model their own plus size collection.
The jeans, in sizes 18-24, hit Sears stores later this month.
Stargazer Lisa Gutierrez would wear anything Brad Pitt told her to wear. To reach her, call 816-234-4987 or send email to email@example.com.
