One thing you might not know about Marc Jacobs: The man always smells ridiculously good. We caught a whiff of him as he breezed past us backstage at his fall 2010 show and the lingering scent left us blushing. But just when the color finally drained from our cheeks, the racy Juergen Teller-shot ad for Bang—Jacobs’ much-anticipated men’s fragrance—hit the Web in May. Now, two months later, the on-counter date of the new scent is almost here (it debuts Friday) and the Internet is abuzz.
Today marks the launch of Bang’s Facebook page and on Friday, when Bang becomes available, so does a new game—aptly titled “Bang! You’re It”—which will allow Facebook users to “bang” their friends and crushes virtually. Though sexually suggestive, Jacobs is quick to note that the word is multifaceted and has a variety of meanings: “When the word ‘bang’ came to me, I liked that it was a sound and also that it felt like something was finished, done, end of story and, you know, kind of complete.”
Adds Teller: “It seemed so perfect. ‘Bang!’ there you are. ‘Bang!’ here’s the new perfume. Even the crushed-ness of the bottle sort of says ‘strength.’”
Whenever a Facebook user gets banged, they rack up points (note: if you get banged after midnight or by people from other countries, your score increases more). Bonus: One Bang player will be chosen at random each day to win a selection of prizes, including a bottle of Bang or clothing. A lucky few will even win a trip to NYC to attend one of Jacobs’ fashion shows.

I had my first shoot; I mean, I was the photographer. Though it was just like "for fun" purpose, still, people appreciate my work. :) so touchy... Our group is called "SHUTTER" if you wonder. :) Me and Tyrene are the photographers, uhmkay?
Anyway, this is my favorite so far. Model is Tyrene Ilisan and photographer is me, and also MUA and editor. :) It's tiring but it was fun. :)
We will have our next shoot after the Prelim exams, I'll keep you guys updated!

The bad boy of eyewear (he once designed a range of one-lensed, pirate-inspired shades), Thierry Lasry is lending his touch to a new line of daisy-dotted sunglasses for Thai clothing label Sretsis. Made from cornflower blue and Liberty-print acetate, they come in two dreamy styles: Daisy Asphixy and Daisy Vulgary. sretsis.com

Taylor Lautner goes shirtless again in "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse," proving yet again that he has a six-pack to die for. Playing Jacob the hunky werewolf the third time around puts Lautner in the middle of some intense competition with Edward for the love of Bella, finally giving him the opportunity to kiss Kristen Stewart.
Taylor revealed to Parade.com's Jeanne Wolf why he might be willing to go that far for love.
Fight for the one you love.
"One of the biggest things I admire about Jacob is his persistence. He keeps going and fights for what he believes in. You've got to love a girl quite a bit to fight that much for her. I guess maybe I'd be the same way if I loved somebody the way that Jacob loves Bella. But he's in a tough little love triangle, and I don't envy that."
What it takes to be romantic in real life.
"I don't know if I'm the best person to answer that question. One of my favorite movies is 'The Notebook,' so I think I'd consider that a little bit romantic. I've given a flower or two. But I like something simple -- not like going out and doing something extremely extravagant. It's more like just being able to talk to each other. I think, besides the gifts and the flowers, romance comes from just talking with her from your heart."
The big lip-lock with Bella.
"Jacob's been waiting for that moment for a while. It wasn't awkward. It was different. Like, Kristen and I would finish and pull away and she'd look at me and there'd be a moment of silence and she'd say, 'Taylor, we just kissed.' And I'd be like, 'Yeah, we did.' That was pretty much it. I found it a lot harder to pretend I hated Rob Pattinson. He and I are good friends, and he's too nice. He needs to roughen up a little bit, so I can actually hate him. We ruined plenty of takes just because we couldn't keep a straight face when we are yelling and screaming at each other."
Keeping his toned bod in perspective.
"It's healthy and it sort of becomes addictive. It's addicting to get into the gym and work to get that muscle. And the healthy eating is good too. But, luckily for me, my friends couldn't care less. They tease me and mess with me about the shirtless thing and about my little jean shorts. It's all good because it keeps me from looking in the mirror."
Two different worlds.
"I live in this world where people scream at me when I walk down the street, but then I live in the same world that I always did before. I go home, spend time with my family and friends, and it's the same as it always was. When I'm not working I'm probably doing nothing. I do like to watch TV."
Remembering his high school days.
"I didn't have, like, a certain group of friends that I hung out with every single day, I was more of the type that kind of just roamed around and spent time with a wide variation of people. I don't know, it sounds so cheesy, but I love people in general, like meeting new people."
Action without a werewolf costume.
"As an actor you want to challenge yourself to do as many different things as possible. Next, I'm in 'Abduction' with Alfred Molina, Sigourney Weaver, Maria Bello, and Jason Isaacs. I had to do boxing and fight training, learn how to ride a motorcycle and I think I'll still have to do some swimming training. Overall, it's pretty intense. There'll be a lot of stunts and I'm looking forward to it."
Miley Cyrus tried to prove she "Can't Be Tamed" in leather bell-bottoms and giant shoulder pads on Thursday's "Late Show With David Letterman," but ended up looking like a little girl playing '80s rock star.
Rihanna paired scary harem pants and frightening bright red locks atop a shaved head as she arrived in her native Barbados on Wednesday. Yikes!
Katie Holmes was all smiles at the premiere of hubby Tom Cruise's "Knight and Day" in Spain, but her pale, ruffled Azzedine Alaia frock did absolutely nothing to flatter her legs or her chest.
We don't know what to say anymore about Ashley Olsen, who seems forever determined to drape her tiny self in odd combos of oversized duds, as she did at a YSL fragrance launch on Thursday.
Victoria's Secret model Selita Ebanks aged herself 20 years in this matronly one-shoulder gown from BCBG Max Azria and tacky, feathered Roger Vivier heels at Samsung's Hope for Children Benefit on Tuesday.
Blondie singer Debbie Harry looked more like a suburban Florida granny than a legendary rocker as she left her hotel in Manchester, England. Yeah, we're gonna pass on her offer to "Call Me."
"California Gurl" Katy Perry's endless parade of mini dresses this week included some winners ... and some losers, like this barely there, leopard-print Dolce & Gabbana nightmare that would be more appropriate worn as a nightgown.
Um, is it just us, or did Alexa Ray Joel look like an eclectic mess outside her Manhattan hotel on Friday? The hipster hat, the bare midriff, and those hideous high-waisted shorts have got to go!
Another lovely lady who looked like she was trying too hard? Emmy Rossum, who had waaay too much going as she hung out in Beverly Hills on Wednesday in a weird sweater and shorts combo.
The frou frou pink getup Holly Madison donned Wednesday was bad enough before she added a headband and a candy cane-striped bag. Let's get a stylist over here, stat!
Yes I did! I've never missed a single Toy Story movie. From those cheap cartoons and now on 3d! :) Is is showing already? It says June 18! I'll be posting a review after I've watched it. :)
A few month's ago Vena Cava announced their new line of basics, Viva Vena! Half of Manhattan (the girl half) jumped for joy at the news, even before seeing the clothes. The collection finally hits stores next month, but Elle got a first look at the whole thing.
Sophie Buhai and Lisa Mayock's signature prints come on fitted tees and tiny dresses over black skirts and skinny pants in jersey and silk. If silver metallic tanks are your thing, they've got you covered. If you prefer simple white t-shirt dresses, there's that, too — spiced up with a little print of course.
