The gift-giving season isn’t far away and already, some are making their lists and checking it twice. Whether or not you have, make sure to add this to it.

… and while some of us love pressurized “lumps of coal,” others prefer concrete. See how much a Hamptons sidewalk went for last week. Personally, I’d hire a gatekeeper to collect tolls…

Need some new shoes to strut down that sidewalk? Head over to Brian Atwood’s Facebook page and enter to win $2,500 toward a Brian Atwood shopping spree.

Need some clothes to go with those shoes? Gwyneth Paltrow and Stella McCartney have finally announced their new collaboration for GOOP, Gwyneth’s site, famous for her $90 T-shirt. Although, that’s a steal compared to the starting price of $795 for a shirt in their new collection.

Want something less flashy and more timeless? Check out Mansur Gavriel’s interview about why they made their own bags.

… or how about something seasonal? Like Chris March Halloween wigs coming to a Target near you on September 15.

Huguette Clark died last year but her fortune hasn’t been forgotten. Whilst in the middle of a lengthy family legal battle, her $2 million doll collection has come to the forefront. See a bit of her extensive international collection here.

It has been announced that Charles James, the most well-known couturier in America, will be honored at this year’s Met Gala, which is being co-chaired by some pretty famous (and fabulous) names.

Estee Lauder beauty advisers are already considered some of the most beautiful in the makeup industry.  Now, they have a uniform to match. See which designer is dressing them.
