The News To Know Now


Everyone remembers Marilyn Monroe's white dress from the Seven Year Itch, which famously blew up to her waist. But you might be surprised by the other nine most iconic dresses of all time, according to a poll done by an online fashion retailer in the UK. One mention that particularly made us scratch our heads was Björk's swan dress, which the notoriously kooky singer wore to the 2001 Academy Awards. (Telegraph)

Speaking of eccentric entertainment, we all know that 3-D technology will be the norm by the end of the decade (OK, maybe by next year). Ahead of the trend is Look3D Eyewear, a company that's touting its new designer glasses: the Disposable Collection, the Movie Collection, the Designer Collection and the Directors Collection. We wonder if this trend will pick up any steam ... (LimeLife)


MAC Cosmetics is always coming up with the most brilliant collaborations. And we couldn't be more excited about this week's announcement that they're partnering with Disney on a collection called "Venomous Villains." Though they're currently keeping the characters under wraps, we're hoping for appearances from Ursula and Cruella De Vil. (BellaSugar)

The great retouching debate goes on ... This week, rumors surfaced from an insider on Jennifer Aniston's movie The Switch that the actress had asked for additional post-production work to make her look better. If that's true, then we're just plain sad, because we think she's pretty flawless, at any age. (Us Weekly)


Dream girl ... dream house? Beyoncé and her mom, Tina Knowles, just announced that they're expanding their ever-growing empire into the home front, with a new bedding collection for their House of Deréon and Deréon brands. The line features details inspired by the pop star's fashion line (from studs to sequins) and will debut in stores just in time for the holidays. "Sweet Dreams," indeed! (WWD)

This just in: Uma Thurman's gorgeous pre-war townhouse in New York City's Greenwich Village just went on the market for $14.2 million. It's listed by Sotheby's and here are the specs: 7 bedrooms, 6.5 bathrooms, 7 fireplaces (including one in the garden) and a separate guest apartment. For a peek into Uma's pad (we love her comfortable, eclectic decorating style), click here. (CasaSugar)


Yes, Ladies, it's true: Men lie more than we do, according to a study performed by a British science museum. The number one lie from the less-truthful sex? "I didn't have that much to drink." Predictably, "Nothing's wrong ... I'm fine," topped the female lie list. (TresSugar)

In happier news, Centenary College's valedictorian, Emily Hawley, proposed to her boyfriend, after delivering her speech to fellow graduates of the New Jersey school. Keeping with non-tradition, she did not drop to one knee. But her beau readily accepted her out-of-the-norm proposition. We say: You go girl! And congrats not only on the engagement, but also for being super-smart to boot. (Pasadena Star News)
