Ariana Grande and Brookstone Collaborate on Cat Ear Headphones [Pret-a-Reporter Inbox]
As every Ariana Grande fan knows, the starlet's second-favorite hairstyle (behind her sky-high ponytail, of course), is any 'do topped with a cat ear headband. So it was only natural that the 22-year-old was tapped to star in the campaign for Brookstone's line of cat-inspired headwear, designed by Axtent Wear. Grande stars in the ads for the pink, green, purple or blue wireless cat ear headphones, now available for pre-order for $150. That way, you can look like the singer while also listening to her sweet tunes - a double whammy.

Lin-Manuel Miranda Lands GQ Cover [GQ]
Who's that guy on the cover of GQ's October issue? Why, it's Lin-Manuel Miranda, founding father of Hamilton. However, the Broadway star looks quite a bit different thanks to a fresh shave, a haircut and one satiny bomber jacket. The creative genius got a high-fashion makeover for the issue (which also sees James Marsden, accurately described as "the world's handsomest man," on a cover of his own) wearing Lanvin, Prada, Dolce & Gabbana and more.

Los Angeles-based brands Pam & Gela, Oliver Peoples and Lisa Eisner created one-of-a-kind pieces for LACMA's fall 2016 Wear LACMA collection.

For example, Oliver Peoples created sunglasses inspired by Chris Burden's iconic "Urban Light" sculpture, while Pam & Gela incorporated crane and blossom motifs from 19th century Japanese ceramics into various apparel items. The collection will be available at LACMA and on the museum's website on Nov. 7, with all proceeds from sales directly benefiting museum programming.
