Surely you've heard of Clive Christian, creator of the world's most expensive perfume? A message popped into Chic's inbox this morning, indicating that he's the creator of something else pretty precious: a daughter named Alice, who's in the running for Miss Great Britain 2010. But she needs vous! Behold:


Dear All,

Alice Christian, the youngest daughter of Clive Christian, has been selected to compete in the finals of Miss Great Britain 2010. Every vote counts and therefore it would be wonderful if you could spare a moment to place your vote for Alice Christian :

It's uncanny! On our left (as though he needs an intro): Roberto Cavalli, designer extraordinaire. On our right: Robert Evans, famed American film producer behind the likes of Rosemary's Baby, Love Story, and The Godfather. They not only share a name---they also appear to share a penchant for tanning, and the gift of looking ages younger than their years (that's 69 and 80, respectively).

Hear that buzzing? Is that the sound of your Blackberry...or your umbrella? Okay, so the Cellphone Umbrella by French toy company Vilac is made of wood and isn’t actually a functioning phone. But the clever contraption will make you feel perpetually connected---and keep you perfectly dry. THE DETAILS: Opening Ceremony, $30

Of course, all this bedazzling will run you a cool $3,500. Details, details.
