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.
Pattinson allegedly had it engraved with "From R," and asked her to

This doesnt just happen with wedding gowns- as women, in general (or maybe it's just me?), we tend to do this with things like shoes, accessories, jeans...even home decor. We find something we ABSOLUTELY LOVE, buy it and then continue to browse or window shop and then it happens: we find something that we think we like better than our original choice. Its maddening! With wedding gowns potentially costing more than a month's salary these days, having dress regret can cost you. Literally. Here are three ways to avoid dress regret and stay in love with your gown.
1. Don't Continue to Browse!
Obviously, this is a given. But you wouldn't believe how hard it is to just keep browsing gowns online. The lace, the beads, the dupioni silk...it sucks you in and before you know it, it's 3:00 in the morning and you've pinned an entire board's worth of just trumpet style gowns. Ladies: you've got to walk away (or close that browser!). Chances are, you'll just compare every

Breaking news from France: That bra you're wearing? It might be having the exact opposite effect on your breasts that you'd want. Professor Jean-Denis Rouillon, who has a background in sports medicine, conducted a 15-year study to analyze whether wearing brassieres (to get French and fancy about it) actually makes breasts sag more. His findings: "Medically, physiologically, anatomically - the breast derives no benefit from being denied gravity. On the contrary, it becomes saggier with a bra."

Don't go burning your bras yet, though. Although one participant reported that she breathed more easily and had better posture and less back pain after she ditched her boob cage, the study's findings aren't quite universally applicable. "It all depends on the structure of each breast. An overweight, 45-year-old woman with three kids has no business not wearing a bra," the professor bluntly noted.

- Dear Target: Orina does not mean what you think it means. (Photo: Target.com)Last week, Target came under fire for describing the color of one maxi dress as "dark heather gray" while calling the plus-size version "manatee gray." This week, they're caught with another product-naming problem: Their Mossimo brand "Orina" sandals.
While the store initially believed the word "Orina" to mean "peace" or "peaceful" in Russian, about a week ago they found out that it actually means "urine" in Spanish. The company is now in the process of relabeling all of the $19-$22.99 shoes that are still on their shelves. (The sandals had been available at Target stores and at Target.com since February, though they're no longer online. Perhaps they should consider themselves lucky that the name refers to the style and not the color!)
While the name isn't that offensive in and of itself, it does point to a certain amount of cultural ignorance on theRead More »from Target Sandals Mistakenly Named After Urine

Two complaints investigated by the Advertising Standards Authority into imagery on American Apparel's website have been upheld. The brand's use of "real" women and employees in their advertising campaigns is widely documented, but it is the images of women promoting the label's knitwear and body suits that have caused the recent controversy. Complaints were files about the perceived vulnerability and explicit sexual overtones of the models' postures and outfits. Particularly in the case of a model wearing a sweater who appears not to be wearing any underwear.

The A.S.A explained their findings: "We considered there was a voyeuristic quality to the images, which served to heighten the impression that the women were vulnerable and in sexually provocative poses. For the reasons given, we considered the ads were likely to cause serious offence to visitors to American Apparel's website."
