Hot stuff celebrities love



Why should Dr. Dre and his Beats corner the headphones market? 50 Cent (aka Curtis Jackson) came out with a “Star Wars”-themed style to mark the annual celebration of the never-say-die intergalactic franchise, now filming a reboot, “Episode VII.” The foldable earbuds from the rapper’s electronics company, SMS by 50, feature leather memory foam cushions in an oval fit for maximum comfort, plus — sorry — some stellar images. Get the Star Wars First Edition Street by 50 On-Ear Headphones at SMS by 50 for $199.95.


It’s easier than you’d think to channel Eva Mendes. The actress turned designer’s eponymous collection hit New York & Company stores this week in South Florida. The 40-year-old says she was inspired by springtime in NYC and her family archives, infusing the affordable clothing, accessories and jewelry with bold colors, earthy tones and a vintage feel. A plus: Everything is Ryan Gosling approved. nyandcompany.com.


Need we remind you summer’s coming? Nice to know there are guilt-free oases like Yogen Früz. Celebs like Courteney Cox, Denise Richards, Brooke Shields and Lauren Conrad are literally lapping up the Canadian company’s new flavors: coconut cream pie and lemon merengue. Forget the taste for a moment: All “froyo” contains probiotics and a single serving is under 130 calories. Fill ’er up. http://www.yogenfruz.com.

When it’s hot out, a robust red wine doesn’t always fit the bill. Take a load off and get in the pink with a rosé. Featured everywhere from the runways at the spring/summer shows to the closets of the impeccably dressed, pastel pink is making a comeback. One liquid pick: Simi’s Sonoma County Dry Rosé, with hints of fruit topped off by a crisp, clean finish. Through May 27, Whole Foods Market stores are debunking the common misconceptions about rosés and offering specially priced bottles, including Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s Chateau Miraval Provence Rosé.


Anyone notice Beyoncé at the Met Gala? Yep, ponytails are a-trending. Treat yourself to a quick-yet-glamorous makeover with a little help from Christie Brinkley, whose single-piece hair extension from Hair 2 Wear clips in easily to add volume that blends naturally with what nature gave you. $39, Hair2wear.com.

    From ‘Downton Abbey,’ Dan Stevens goes to being a most welcome ‘Guest’

    It’s been almost two years since Dan Stevens’ beloved Downton Abbey character, Matthew Crawley, met with an untimely end, and some die-hard fans of the PBS costume drama still may not quite be over it. But for the 31-year-old British actor, Crawley’s tragic death marked a kind of rebirth – or at least a chance to strike out in some very different directions as an actor.
