Gwyneth Paltrow will not be ignored. Between her lifestyle website Goop.com, where she’s teaming up with bestie Stella McCartney on a mystery project to be announced Sept. 15, and those endless diet-tip interviews, the actress is now the face of Hugo Boss’s Jour Pour Femme perfume. “I love that the brand is taking the opportunity to acknowledge the many layers and varying lives of women,” Paltrow says. The Oscar winner’s the boss lady, so this seems like a good fit.

From June Jacobs Spa Collection are two new products. No. 1 is June Jacobs Intensive Age Defying Hydrating Complex SPF 25, $83. Intensive is right. This anti-wrinkle formula performs its magic on damaged and aging skin cells to correct the appearance of expression lines and helps restore and maintain firmer, younger-looking skin. Bonus: the added benefit of SPF 25.$83. The other hard worker is JJ’s Papaya Purifying Shower Gel, $35, which does its job while you’re bathing with a blend of white, red and green tea extracts combined with goji berry, pomegranate and grapeseed extracts. Both at www.JuneJacobs.com


Look good, do good. That’s the motto of Coconut Grove shoe brand Juntos. The fashion startup is the brainchild of Miami native Mauricio Laniado and New Englander Andrew Tupper, entrepreneurs working to help at-risk children in Ecuador. For every pair of canvas lace up kicks purchased, they’ll donate a backpack full of school supplies. $48 at juntosproject.com.


Rosie Huntington is one lucky lady. Jason Statham on her arm, Vanita Rosa on her gams. The famed French line that has been accentuating bodies from Ibiza to St. Barths is on full display at the standalone store at 827 Washington Ave., Miami Beach (305-534-1774), as well as at the Seagate Hotel, Delray Beach. The shiny leather “liquid” skinnies the actress is wearing ($300) are made to make the female frame look as sexy as possible and give women confidence, says designer Valerie Bourdin. Done! www.vanitarosa.com


Blake Lively, Jonas Brothers, Lea Michelle…What do they all have in common? A serious sweet tooth. And this fall they are bound to pounce on something new from Godiva: the first-ever Truffle Flights collection. Each flight features six hand selected truffles that are placed in order for the ideal tasting experience by the chocolatier’s executive chef, Theirry Muret. Think of it as a wine or beer flight, but a lot more indulgent.
