Rihanna It's no secret that Rihanna likes to party-and goes all out when it comes to having fun with her posse. The 25-year-old is known for routinely indulging in marijuana (don't take it from us, she routinely Instagrams photos), hitting up the hottest clubs in the world, and frequently buying out bars for the night just so her crew can privately have a killer night-that doesn't end until the next morning. Currently in the midst of her Diamonds World Tour, RiRi has been up to her old tricks, and this past weekend after her show in Miami, things got really rowdy.

When Baz Luhrmann-whose resume includes frenetic, glitter-garnished musicals like "Moulin Rouge" and "Strictly Ballroom"-began working on a modern adaptation of the Fitzgerald classic, "The Great Gatsby," he lured collaborators from worlds as diverse as hip hop, hospitality, and fine jewelry.
Not only did Tiffany & Co. create Daisy Buchanan's glamorous Art Deco adornments, but Miuccia Prada designed her swishy flapper garb.
As for the fellas, Brooks Brothers (which is actually name checked in the original Fitzgerald text) created dapper fitted suits and silky cravates-and, subsequently, a complete retail collection hitting stores this month.
Supplying even more swagger? Moët & Chandon sponsored Gatsby's champagne-soaked celebrations while Jay-Z produced an original hip hop score.
We're pretty sure "Gatsby" was never this great.

Kim and Kanye Kanye West has recently been receiving a lot of flack in the media for his behavior during his girlfriend Kim Kardashian's pregnancy. West, a known workaholic and creative type who needs to disengage to focus on his craft, has been camping out in Paris for the past few months working on his new album while Kardashian has been dealing with the stress of her second divorce (which was finalized last Friday) and her less-than-perfect pregnancy alone in Los Angeles.

However, according to a recent report, that isn't exactly the case-it seems that West has been way more involved than anyone knew, and has made it a priority to be at every one of her doctor's appointments. But why haven't we ever seen him at the airport, a known stalking ground for paparazzi and fans? Because the rapper and fashion designer only flies private.

Social media engagement has been a marketing buzzword for years now. Still, luxury brands remain the most reticent to join the conversation (case in point, a number of luxury brands like Rolex have yet to join Facebook and Twitter). If the success being enjoyed by the brands that are investing heavily in social media is any indication, Burberry for instance, which now invests 60 percent of its marketing budget in digital, that is likely a major mistake. Take Dior and Porsche, who have both mastered social media engagement, spurring sales growth along with it-that is the point after all.
So how did we come up with our list of the Top 25 Luxury Brands On Social Media? The numbers certainly played a large role (it's hard to argue with the power of fourteen million Facebook fans). Voice and innovation also factored in. We also included brands across the luxury space including fashion, cars, retailers, hospitality, watches, fine jewelry, and liquor.

Rachel Zoe's Party When you're a celebrity, there's only one thing you love spending your hard earned cash on more than yourself-and that's your children. Case in point: super-stylist and reality TV star Rachel Zoe and her always devoted hubby Rodger Berman (who even knows what kind of Birkin chains his high maintenance wife likes) definitely shelled out the big bucks for their adorable son Skyler's second birthday this past weekend.

Although his actual birthday was on March 22, the family was seemingly too caught up with Passover plans and traveling to appropriately celebrate-hence why they did this past weekend. The family celebrated with a safari-themed jungle shindig in the backyard of their Beverly Hills mansion, where Zoe dressed for the occasion in a head-to-toe Missoni outfit, and Skyler rocked a chic fedora and what we're almost positive is a children's Gucci jacket (he's been spotted

The $45,000 pen Despite a turbulent year and a massive cheating scandal that led to a brief separation, Robert Pattinson still shelled out the big bucks for Kristen Stewart's 23rd birthday present. Considering the duo have millions and millions of dollars sitting in their bank accounts thanks to the "Twilight" franchise, it's no surprise that when it came time to shop, the word "budget" didn't enter his head. So, he bought her a $45,000 Bentley pen.

Apparently, K-Stew is an avid pen collector and had her eye on this one for awhile. It's a Tibaldi Bentley Crewe fountain pen made entirely of white gold, and there are only 40 of them in the world. The barrel of the pen is identical to the dashboard Bentley used in their first car, so it's not only a collector's item, it has historical significance.
