Move over ScarJo, may I present Mikhail S. Gorbachev, the last president of the Soviet Union, for Louis Vuitton ads. This new ads campaign is part of a campaign to emphasize the company’s heritage in luggage and travel accessories. Photographed by Annie Leibovitz, the ads include other celebrities using Vuitton bags: Andre Agassi and Steffi Graf cuddling in a hotel room, their bags not yet unpacked; Catherine Deneuve resting on a trunk in front of a steaming locomotive; and Mr. Gorbachev in the back of a car with a duffel bag on the seat next to him.

I couldn't believe my favorite club in L.A. is closing. PRIVILEGE is closing the door for good but there will be the last 3 events before the closing - July 29th, August 26th and September 9th (hopefully I can make it to one of them.) Previous posts on PRIVILEGE
Did you remember Carlos Santana's song "Game of Love" with Michelle Branch? The original version was the duet with Tina Turner, yes you heard it right. But don't wait too long, in October Carlos will release "Ultimate Santana," a greatest-hits disc, will be the "Game of Love" song - one version featuring Branch, and one featuring Turner. The hit song was originally included on Santana's 2002 disc, "Shaman," the follow-up to his multi-Grammy, multiplatinum disc "Supernatural." Santana had asked Turner to sing on the song and she obliged and recorded the vocals to the track. But Santana says that executives at his record label at the time apparently weren't interested in having Turner on the track. SOURCE

I always have a love-hate relationship with Prada; one season "I hate it" and the next "I love it" or I hate the clothes but love the accessories. Here is the perfect example: I hate the clothes of their Fall collection which I think they look like they came out of the caveman's closet but the bags are to die for. This patent leather bag will make you look like a million bucks and it's even more gorgeous in person.
