It may be her smoky voice that earned her fame, but “Mercy” singer Duffy is poised to show off a whole new side of herself in an ad campaign for Nivea. And while the images of the Welsh beauty won’t appear until later this month in the special Fashion Rocks supplement, we’ve snagged you a preview. If you’re craving more than just face time with the singer, tune in to the Fifth Annual Fashion Rocks concert from N.Y.C.’s Radio City Music Hall September 9th on CBS.
If there’s one thing Paris Hilton is obsessed with — aside from her menagerie of furry pets and rock star boyfriend, of course — it’s fashion. Not content just wearing the latest look, the heiress has built up a mini-empire of numerous lines of clothing and accessories. PEOPLE caught up with the reality star at the Macy’s Vegas launch of her latest venture, Paris Hilton Footwear. “I love shoes and I think every girl loves shoes,” she explains of her choice to branch out into pumps and flats. “I already have clothing and purses and watches and other fashion accessories so I thought it would be perfect to dress head to toe in me!” Aside from being her very own muse, the jetsetter finds easy inspiration all around her. “Just from traveling all around the world and going to fashion shows and being in Saint Tropez and seeing different shoes everywhere, you feel inspired. So, when I go down and have my design meetings I know exactly what I want in a shoe.” Fortunately for her fans, Paris Hilton Footwear isn’t all style and no substance — the star also kept comfort in mind. “They have a little heart padding which no shoe has, so with the pads the bottom of your feet are really comfortable and you can dance all night long in them.” And you don’t need Paris’s trust funds to buy them — the shoes will retail for $59-$195.
Following in the foot steps of past stars like Hilary Swank, Charlize Theron, Renee Zellweger and Glenn Close, Gwyneth Paltrow has been named the Entertainment Industry Foundation’s (EIF) ambassador for Saks Fifth Avenue’s 2008 KEY TO THE CURE campaign, a women’s cancer initiative founded in partnership with EIF’s Women’s Cancer Research Fund. The limited edition T-Shirt modeled by Gwyneth was created by legendary designer Karl Lagerfeld and features a cross bow and arrow on the front and a sketch of Karl himself on the back. Gwyneth will appear in all KEY TO THE CURE ads and a public service announcement wearing the T-shirt. Karl’s limited edition work will hit Saks Fifth Avenue stores and their website on October 1 and retail for $40 with over $35 to exclusively benefit KEY TO THE CURE. In the ten years since Key to the Cure’s inception, Saks and its partners have raised more than $28 million.
