Hot stuff celebrities love



The latest Brad Pitt-Angelina Jolie sequel is getting raves, but not in movie publications — they’re from Decanter magazine’s review of the celebrity couple’s second vintage of rose produced at their French estate, Chateau Miraval. The wine went on sale online Friday ( www.wine-searcher.com) and is expected at stores like Total Wine and More March 1. Decanter describes the Cotes de Provence wine as having “a delicate structure that deepens through the palate.” Around $20 a bottle.


Flowers are a traditional gift for Valentine's Day. Why not jazz your bouquet up with an unexpected hue? A FTD floral expert tells us purple and lavender are among the IT colors for this season of romance. We say go for it, starting with FTD's Casual Elegance bouquet. Prices range from $59.99 to $79.99 and can be found online at FTD.com or at local florists.


Leave it to a South Florida girl to develop a product for people who constantly perspire. Marielle Sainz from Miami Beach showed off her biodegradable deodorant wipes, ahem Swipes, to Bethenny Frankel on the former “Housewife’s” talk show late last year. Now you can find the discreet, pocket-size packets online at www.itsswipes.com starting at $3.99 for a pack of three. Don’t leave home without them, especially if you have a red-carpet kinda night.


Insert sad face here. Guy Fieri won’t be making the South Beach Wine & Food Festival for commitments unknown, but you can still share a cup of joe with the spiky haired personality (sort of). The chef/restaurateur’s Flavortown Roasts coffee line has launched with eight radical flavors (from Fudge Brownie to Hazelnut Cinnamon Roll) in Keurig-compatible single serve “ready to rock” cups. A sampler of 16 are $12.95 at Amazon.

Kelly Clarkson has good reason to count down the clock — the newlywed is pregnant. So maybe that’s why the “American Idol” hitmaker just signed as brand ambassador of Citizen watches. New for spring: timepieces that are literally everlasting. Powered by light (using Citizen’s Eco-Drive technology), the watches do not require batteries. The singer relies on her rose gold Bella style ($495) to keep her on track and count down her weeks. See hers at www.citizenwatch.com/en-us/watches/watch-detail/?model=EM0123-50A#filters=0123-50A

    Dwyane Wade & Gabrielle Union: Top secret wedding location

    We are left wondering where Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union are going to get hitched at the end of next month. A peek of the invite leaked on TMZ says to “put on your dancing shoes” for a “throw down.” An enclosed note with blacked-out words tells guests to meet up at a hotel, where they will be transported to the wedding site. If they prefer to drive, attendees are directed to call a number for instructions on how to get to the venue that is “45 to 50 minutes south of South Beach.” Um, the Biltmore? Ritz Carlton Key Biscayne? Private estate? Your guess is as good as ours.
