Hot stuff celebrities love



That krazy reality family is adding another ‘K’ to their empire: Kardashian Kids, designed exclusively for Babies R' Us, for girls up to 24 months, starting Saturday. The mini-them line features on-trend accents (lace, appliques) and fun prints (polka dots, animals). “Until you have your own child, you don’t realize how important it is for fabrics to be extra soft and accessible,” Kim told Women’s Wear Daily. From $14.99 to $29.99.


When she’s not making movies, Angelina Jolie channels her creativity in other ways. At the Academy Awards the actress-director’s partner Brad Pitt was sporting yellow gold and diamond tuxedo buttons and cufflinks from her Style of Jolie line with Beverly Hills’ jeweler Robert Procop. Pitt’s accessories were a Christmas gift from his beloved. Does it get more romantic? Sigh. Info: robertprocop.com


Lupita Nyong’o made one particular beauty company happy at the Oscars. When Ellen Degeneres jokingly passed around Pharrell’s huge hat for pizza donations, the best supporting actress winner tossed in her Clarins HydraQuench Moisture Replenishing Lip Balm. After the host pocketed the tube, it got its own hashtag, #lupitaslipbalm, began to trend and subsequently sell out. When restocked, it’ll be $24 at clarinsusa.com

Warm blooded beauties Gwyneth Paltrow and Victoria Beckham have been known to use products with so-called Snake Venom, like Rodial’s popular Snake Serum, but don’t be sss-scared. It’s really a synthetic peptide called Syn-ake that mimics the effects of Viper Venom, paralyzing facial muscles similar to Botox. NIP + FAB just launched its Viper Venom Night Fix, a powerful night cream specially formulated with encapsulated time release retinol plus Syn-ake to keep wrinkles at bay while you sss-snooze. $19.95 at http://www.ulta.com

Ladies, your hair prayers have been answered. An A-list line favored by celebs like Emma Roberts, Nina Dobrev and Olivia Munn is now available at your local Target. Black 15 in 1 promises to literally address all needs under the sun. UVA/UVB rays, humidity, saltwater, the works. You can thank the of-the-moment yet gentle ingredients like aloe vera, green tea leaf extract and argan oil. Oh, it’s for guys too. The company just sent a box over to Jared Leto.


Homeboy Jordan Barrocas has turned his love of meat into a pretty cool little business. The North Miami Beach-raised entrepreneur is a cofounder of Venice, Calif.-based Three Jerks Jerky, which he launched with the help of a Kickstarter campaign. The (Nova) University School grad’s jerky isn’t like the Slim Jims you grab at the gas station — it’s made from 100 percent filet mignon and all-natural ingredients and spices. www.threejerksjerky.com
