Chic Report had heard buzz that Byrdie Bell was enjoying some kind of Manhattan hiatus in Israel, but what she was doing there remained a mystery...until now. While browsing Style.com, we came across this delicious bit of dish: "Also spotted: Byrdie Bell, whose stint on Israeli Big Brother has made her a hit abroad." Israeli Big Brother? Qu'est-ce c'est? A little quick googling led us to the show's Wikipedia page (technically, it's called HaAh HaGadol 2), complete with Bell's cast member bio. "Byrdie Bell, A twenty-four year old woman from New York, is an American actress who entered the house on Day 71. She is a fake housemate, and the housemates believe she was evicted from the US edition of Big Brother, to be sent to the Israeli house. The housemates also believe the public will be voting on whether or not Byrdie should stay in the house as a housemate or be evicted. She left the house on Day 74." She may have only lasted three days in the house, but don't worry, darling: there's always Big Brother Mozambique!

Quick: which iconic designer does this apartment make you think of? If you answered Jean Paul Gaultier, gold star for vous! (If you answered anyone else, we think you're on the wrong website.) The former abode of French architect Jacque Carlu has had Christian Lacroix and Martin Margiela take the design reins in the past (in 2008 and 2009), but 2010 belongs to JPG, who decked the place out in his signature Breton stripes. Sure, it makes us a little dizzy (click Gallery for more views)---but beautiful fashion does that to us sometimes too, non?

A body lotion-flavored cookie? We know it sounds a bit shocking at first, but stay with us on this one. The Creme de Cookie was created especially for Kiehl’s by Milk & Cookies Bakery, modeled after the ultra-popular Creme de Corps body lotion. For all the times you thought, "This is good enough to eat" about your favorite Kiehl's product, now you can go right ahead. A scrumptious blend of almonds, vanilla and citrus, the cookie is available exclusively at the Milk & Cookies Espresso Bar at Kiehl’s New York Flagship Store. More often than not, we’re craving something sweet---and this tasty treat hits the spot.

Amber Chair Amber Chair

Designer Jaeuk Jung’s latest creation launches us back to our high school science class days, where we would examine preserved insects in amber (remember?). The Amber Chair doesn’t exactly look inviting to sit on, but it’s certainly intriguing to look at. The woven chair by furniture manufacturer Thonet is embedded in a resin and frozen in time forever. Safely protected by polymer, there’s no need to worry about this piece risking any every day wear and tear.
