A frozen plume of water? A ghostly guppy? A dragon tear? Those are just a few of the things that may come to mind when you first lay eyes on the 2013 LACMA holiday ornament. An annual tradition that taps Los Angeles-based designers and artists to create ornaments inspired by the museum's holdings (much like the Wear LACMA program does with apparel and accessories), this year's was created by brothers Simon and Nikolai Haas whose downtown L.A. design studio cranks out a range of things -- from freaky looking furniture, candelabras and vases to set pieces and props for movies and television.

Jennifer Meyer wears her jewelry in the shower. And she's built a business on that idea. "I don't want you to take your jewelry off. I want it to become a part of you," says the designer over lunch, sweeping her hand across the subtle gold pieces on her wrists, neck and earlobes. "All of these have been in the shower with me this morning - it's 18-karat gold, it's diamonds and it's an investment, and if it turns color, then someone's ripping me off. " Meyer is holding forth on a weekday, in the less hectic garden room of L.A.'s Soho House - down a long hallway, away from the see-and-be-seen power dining center.

You know green building is finding a larger audience when Spider-Man shows up at the construction site.

The 3,600-square-foot residence -- the brainchild of Meyer's mother, Kelly Meyer, and builder Tom Schey -- aims to be a model for environmentally friendly design.

Kristen Stewart wore another sheer outfit by Zuhair Murad to the London premiere of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn -- Part 2" on Wednesday. This one was a jumpsuit that showed a lot of peek-a-boo skin. And it seemed to make quite a point of covering her buttocks, unlike the sheer gown that accidentally gave onlookers a view at Monday's Los Angeles premiere. [Styleite] Rihanna, Ben Affleck and Hannah Simone were among the celebs who turned out for GQ's Men of the Year party at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles.

The zeal with which Americans have sought to impose laws that interfere with an individual's freedom of choice has never ceased to amaze me. I personally wear my seat belt habitually and request my passengers to do the same. I do this because I value my own life and that of my friends and family. I also do this because I feel that it is foolish to do otherwise. However, it is not the role of government to prevent its citizens from making foolish decisions unless those decisions infringe on the rights of others.

Designer Stella McCartney and her longtime friend actress and Goop founder Gwyneth Paltrow have partnered for an exclusive, limited-edition Stella McCartney x Goop capsule collection ($695-$1,895), which launched last Thursday on Paltrow's  lifestyle and e-commerce site goop.com . The six-piece line features tailored denim-and-velvet jeans, a classic wool blazer, a sleeveless wool jumpsuit and wool drawstring trousers, plus two versions of McCartney's new fall 2013 Beckett handbag, which have both already sold out. But there are still pieces available of all four apparel styles, and more bags are expected in the next few weeks.
