Hot on the heels of Christian Louboutin men’s boutique opening, the watch-what-happens-next Design District is bringing the bling with Dionea Orcini, a fine jewelry brand inspired by ancient traditions. Shoppers can expect a sparkly showcase from each of the line’s 11 collections at the first concept store. In keeping with the brand’s flair for the dramatic, the temporary boutique’s décor is refined and monochromatic: White walls contrast dark floors while an all-white lounge area is surrounded with white orchids and candles. You may spot Laura Dern, who donned the “Lasya” diamond ring to the Emmys. 1 N.E. 40th St., Miami; www.dioneaorcini.com

    Amber Valletta comes clean: I’m a raging addict

    Amber Valletta isn’t playing the blame game. The model-actress (Hitch, Revenge, Transporter 2) talked candidly in a video for MindBodyGreen.com and takes full responsibility for her addiction to drugs and alcohol. In the clip, Valletta says she started young, sniffing markers while growing up in Oklahoma, then graduated to the hard stuff when she began posing for magazines. Even though she has been sober for 25 years, the self proclaimed raging addict still has moments when she wants to “distract herself” because she’s “uncomfortable being a human being.” The 40-year-old mother of one, who is married to volleyball player Chip McCaw, credits looking inward constantly to stay healthy.
