Beyoncé and Rent the Runway have teamed up! In celebration of her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour, Queen B has picked out some sparkly, fun numbers, which I predict will rent out almost as fast as her shows sell out.

And to go underneath it? Here’s one idea from actress Jessica Chastain at Cannes. I’m sure this wasn’t something paired with her first wedding dress, which is now up for auction.

Speaking of sparkly numbers, check out one of the world’s largest colorless diamonds, bought at auction by Harry Winston. It’s 101.73 carats and was purchased for $26.7 million.

And while that diamond is certainly impressive, these 43 equally famous, drool-worthy jewels are nothing to sneeze at.

Now, imagine if any of these were (gasp!) stolen. Turns out that not one but TWO jewelry heists took place at Cannes this year. Find out what went missing.

Onto less glamorous (and completely legal) news: someone paid $36,000 for Luke Skywalker’s dirty Levi’s.

First Virgin Airlines partners with  to redesign the airlines’ flight attendant uniforms. Now other airlines are following “suit.” Check out which airline has tapped which designer for their new uniforms.
