I would definitely described myself as a Zoolander superfan, and so with the anticipation building for the nationwide release of the Zoolander 2 film today, what better way to celebrate than with combining an incredibly good-looking, synergistic team up of fashion and beauty? The Derek Zoolander Center For People Who Don’t Age Good is a partnership of the film with Kiehl’s, featuring a variety of Zoolander-themed activations featuring the brand’s skincare products in a 6.5 step process. Located at 77 Eighth Avenue (on the corner of 14th Street) now through Saturday at 6pm, the “center” is open to the public to experience Kiehl’s items with two exclusive gift sets in honor of film, including “The Ridiculously Youthful Collection” unisex anti-aging kit ($26) and “The Blue Kiehl” men’s kit ($25). These are available at select Kiehl’s locations globally and online as well.Is it a coincidence that Zoolander 2 opens during New York Fashion Week? I think not!

Who doesn’t love Tiffany’s? Beside being an American institution, Tiffany & Co. is as much known for its incredibly gorgeous, innovative, iconic jewels as it is for that little blue box, all of which is explored in the documentary “Crazy About Tiffany’s,” opening nationwide and On Demand February 19th. An advanced viewing of the film reveals interviews with fashion industry powerhouse players such as Katie Couric, Rachel Zoe, and Harper’s Bazaar editor Glenda Bailey, discussing the brand’s mystique and reputation, closely tied in with its branding that is instantly recognizable worldwide. This documentary is absolutely a must for anyone with a penchant for marketing, American success stories, and naturally, really good taste in jewelry. Watch the trailer above for a sneak peek into the world of Tiffany’s!
Call me old school, but there’s just something about an aromatic bar of soap lathering up that heightens the cleansing experience and feels a million times more effective on the skin than using a slick body wash. Over the years I’ve tried a bar here and there of the Yardley London Botanical Bath Bar Collection, and fully immersed myself in four of the six bars this week, to great effect. Pictured from top, the Oatmeal & Almond, Aloe & Avocado, Lemon Verbena, and English Lavender options can provide a gentle exfoliation, mega moisture, and delectable scent emanating from the bar as you wash. Great to leave out as a guest soap, but equally as nice as a body bar, and at $1.59 each, the price can’t be beat! You’ll find Yardley London soaps nationwide in most food, drug and mass retailers
It’s 100% true that I’m a Dove Dry Spray Antiperspirant fiend, so I absolutely had to share the newest scents with you, ASAP! The two additions to the collection are the Original Clean scent, which I believe has a great crisp aroma with unisex appeal, and Soothing Chamomile, a light citrus scent that mingles well with orange blossom, chamomile (naturally), and lily of the valley. You can still shop all of the six original scents that hit the US market last year, including Revive, Cool Essentials, Beauty Finish, Nourished Beauty, Skin Renew, and Sensitive. All eight Dove Dry Sprays retail for about $6.50 at national food and drug retailers, in-store and online.Keds turns 100 this year; can you believe it?! I went to the beyond fabulous fête that the brand and Refinery 29 hosted to celebrate the history of the brand this past week, recognizing that some of its earliest styles are shockingly similar to those that are popular today! It’s built quite a legacy over the years, first in women’s footwear followed by men’s, and now you can make them 100% your own, thanks to its custom design studio, available online, in its classic Champion style. The party was also in celebration of creative director of the new Keds Collective, Allison Williams, a consortium of “notable tastemakers from the fashion, music, art, and technology sectors who represent the brand’s commitment to female empowerment and individuality.”
