.The downside of being a is charitable giver is undoubtedly all the lackluster swag you get in return. Personally, we can't count the number of oversized T-shirts we've collected by donating to philanthropies or running 5Ks with a cause. But swag from The Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry? Well, that could be a different story.
Seems the Foundation has applied to trademark fashion items with Kate Middleton's coveted name on them. Though the charity's name would appear on each piece, this is the first instance where the Duchess' name would appear on branded clothing and could (could) be the buddings of a Kate fashion line.

A palace spokesman says that this decision is not indicative of a Kate Middleton clothing brand, but rather to a step to, "protect the foundation against other people using its name illegally." The statement

Named partly for Charles Manson and known for his edgy, theatrical stunts both on and off stage, Marilyn Manson, née Brian Hugh Warner, now has a damn classy gig to add to his resume: shilling for high fashion as the new face of Saint Laurent. It's a strange pick to be sure. But is it the strangest celebrity-product marriage ever? Probably not. But you be the judge.--Beth Greenfield, Shine Staff

Ashton KutcherAshton Kutcher is known for many things-his awesome tweets, his acting and producing skills, his romantic ties with A-list actresses (Demi Moore, Mila Kunis, etc)-and when he got behind T-shirt company, Pickwick and Weller, we could finally credit him as a fashion designer, too. Along with Ryan Donahue and Matt Rowe, Kutcher is a cofounder of the L.A.-based brand that allows customers to try on the tops at home for free via a Home Fit Kit, so shoppers can find their perfect sizes. Before the new Spring/Summer 2013 line launches tomorrow, we chatted with Kutcher about why he got behind this line, why a comfy T-shirt is so important, and why it's okay to sport tees all week long.
ELLE: Why did you choose to do tees?
Ashton Kutcher: T-shirts are the uniform of this generation. If you are going to wear something every day, it should be the best. Our aim is to make the best T-shirts on earth.
ELLE: How much are you personally involved in the design process?

If Michelle Obama's Prabal Gurung Easter outfit looks familiar, you're right. The black and white, silk twill gazar dress with a brush-painted rose print is one of the first lady's favorites. In fact, we recall two other public occasions where the FLOTUS has worn the off-the-shoulder frock. She loves shopping her closet even for major events, unlike many celebrities who feel they can't be seen in the same dress twice. Obama's most oft-worn pieces aren't all designer garments either-she's also obsessed with items from affordable shops like Target and Talbots. In recognition of her recent wardrobe recycling, we're round up Obama's most memorable outfit repeats. Let us know which ensemble you like the best.

Midriff tops make a bold fashion statement, but it's a statement that everyone, including Diane Kruger (in Carven and Vanessa Bruno), Miley Cyrus (in Marc Jacobs), and Selena Gomez (in Dolce & Gabbana), is loving-and Chloe Sevigny hopes it stays that way. The American Horror Story actress, who wore her own cutout creation (vintage Chloe by Karl Lagerfeld) to Barneys Celebrates 60 Years of Chloe at the department store in New York, loves the look because she believes it gives people a chance to breakout from "playing it safe" with their style. "I think that you shouldn't be afraid of being an individual," Sevigny told InStyle.com. "People are so afraid of criticism, especially from all of the tabloid magazines and stuff, but I think that the InStyles of the world always seem to celebrate individuality more, so I just keep that in mind." So true, Chloe!

The hottest model in Berlin is none other than 83-year-old Turkish tailor and father to 18 children Ali who walks the streets of Berlin's Neukölln district every day. His eccentric street style is captured by Australian photographer and Berlin resident Zoe Spawton on her popular blog "What Ali Wore." Says Spawton: "I work in a cafe in Neukölln, and every morning at 9:05 a.m., this elderly Turkish man would walk by. He was always dressed so stylishly that it was obvious he had put a lot of thought into what he would wear…He thought it was funny at first. And I think he was a bit proud. Now he's the one giving me instructions and showing me where he wants to pose, though he doesn't allow it every day." Ali, a former doctor who owns 80 suits, also refuses photos if he's not impeccably dressed and objects if he's wearing an outfit that's already been photographed. Diva alert! Here are some of Ali's best looks.

Let's face it: Celebrity relationships are fickle. It seems that a week rarely goes by when a high-profile couple doesn't call it quits-or reconcile. And we often forget that some of the most famous and seemingly strong duos have had seriously rocky roads along the way (ahem, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel).
Today, the May issue of Cosmopolitan was released with cover girl Rachel Bilson who-in a rare interview-gushed about her relationship with actor Hayden Christensen. While Bilson is constantly on our minds thanks to her fashion prowess, we'd completely forgotten about Christensen and their famously hot and cold relationship, which culminated in a called-off wedding back in 2010.
This got us thinking about other A-listers who've split up, only to reconcile more times than we can count, all with the media's watchful eye tracking their every move.
