Hot stuff celebrities love



You follow them on Facebook, read their Tweets, pay money to see their movies and listen to their songs. It’s time to finally meet your idols. A website called IfOnly.com hooks you up with celebrity meet-and-greets and even a lunch date or two. Run by San Francisco entrepreneur Trevor Traina ( Danielle Steel’s stepson), the site can set up a pow-wow with Shakira for a mere 15K or a 50K meal with Mike Tyson. “We believe that true luxury is not another bauble or thing,” reads the site, “but rather the extraordinary experiences we remember and share.” Bring your camera.


Root, root, root for the home team with something a little more stylish than a number jersey. Doral-based apparel company Peace Love World’s latest collection gets its inspiration from our NBA champs. Get game-day chic by throwing on an “I Am Heat” baseball-style cap or accessorizing with a “Believe” iPhone5 case. Shop for tops, zip-up hoodies and sweat suits at the AmericanAirlinesArena.

Our city gets a bad rap sometimes, but not from cosmetics company Nars, which has come out a pretty homage, the Nars Loves Miami palette. Director of global artistry James Boehmer says the peachy, tawny blush, bronzer, eye shadows, gloss and nail polish were inspired by our attractive female residents. “Miami women are sexy, exuberant and not so serious and that spirit is reflected in the colors,” Boehmer told Ocean Drive. $75 at counters at Bloomingdale’s Boca, Nordstrom and Saks Fifth Avenue Bal Harbour.

Even though the weather’s cooling down a bit, we Miami gals need all the help we can get to keep from melting. Thanks to Cargo Cosmetics for coming out with a long-wearing, waterproof eyeliner with the rich, creamy feel of a liquid and versatility of a pencil. Swimmables are available in six highly-pigmented shades that stay in place for up to 14 hours. Avocado and sunflower oil create a velvety texture for smooth application and blendability. $18 at www.CargoCosmetics.com, Ulta stores.


Prying eyes recently caught baby North West out and about with her famous parents in a Santa Barbara, Calif., park. Turns out the young lady may have a better stylist than her mother Kim Kardashian. The 5-month-old pampered princess was wearing a smart cashmere cardigan and leggings from UK brand Hucklebones, known for its close attention to tailoring and comfort. Too bad the line doesn’t come in adult sizes. Link to the USA site: www.hucklebones.co.uk/shop/index.php/baby.html


Even if you’re a Marlins fan you can likely still appreciate superstar NY Yankee Derek Jeter, who revealed his new fragrance, Derek Jeter Driven Rush from Avon last week. Described as “powerful and intense,” it is meant to get your adrenaline pumping. Not sure if it improves your game, though. “The scent was inspired by the excitement I’ve always had from playing the game I love,” he says. $28 at www.avon.com


Time to throw one back! LIQS, a line of ready-to-drink “cocktail shots” has arrived. Brough to us from party animals/NYC entrepreneurs Michael Glickman and Harley Bauer, LIQS features craft cocktail quality recipes packaged into unique, innovative ready-to-drink plastic cups. “The sophisticated drinker is no longer satisfied with low-grade spirits and artificial ingredients,” said Bauer. “Our blend of premium spirits and natural flavors make enjoying expertly mixed shots convenient in any setting, from boating, pool or beach parties, home entertaining and catered affairs to music festivals and sporting events.” Sold in packages of three for $9.99 at Crown Wine & Spirits, Big Daddy’s Liquors, I Love Liquor and other South Florida retailers. www.LIQSshot.com
