Hot stuff celebrities love



Coral Springs native Josh Reed is living proof that hard work pays off — and gets you to Hollywood. No, Reed isn’t an actor. The former Calvin Klein exec, who went to J.P. Taravella High School and UF, is the founder/CEO of L.A.-based Gents clothing company. And stars like Zac Efron, Bradley Cooper and Mark Wahlberg are snapping up his stuff (especially the beanies) like crazy. Jeans coming soon with the help of Kickstarter. Gentsco.com


Ladies and gents: Your dry hair prayers have been answered. An A-list line co-owned by Katie Holmes has what ails you. Well, your head, anyway. Alterna’s Caviar Clinical: Exfoliating Scalp Facial contains a jolt of the luxurious delicacy plus active fruit enzymes to help eliminate and control embarrassing flakes (please don’t use the word “dandruff”). Time to wear black shirts again. $36, AlternaHairCare.com


Dining in the sky is overrated. Take things to the ground level — well, lower — at newly opened The Downstairs at Hotel Astor. Sit in the clubby indoor space or laze in the outdoor, tea-lit garden while sipping on with-it beers and fancy scotches. When it comes for mealtime, dig into the Euro-tinged cuisine by Palm Beacher Chad Ford and Scotsman Steven Mcguire. Gravlax, anyone? 956 Washington Ave., Miami Beach.


Babalu, with locations at 1111 Lincoln Rd. and The Raleigh Hotel, makes nondecisive shopaholics happy. Why? Because their stores are jam-packed to the rafters with tchotchkes galore. The new Palm Beach location is hosting cocktail party to launch Fornasetti Profumi’s newest scent, “Sole di Capri,” 5-7:30 p.m. Tuesday. Spend $300 (too easy) or more and take home a ceramic room diffuser. www.ilovebabalu.com

The scent is so timeless, so floral, so The Bachelor (not!). Seriously, congrats to By Terry, whose Baume de Rose is celebrating its 10th Anniversary Edition with a limited edition silver heart design jar and set. Available at Beauty.com
