It almost goes without saying that hair is huge business in Hollywood. Healthy, beautifully coiffed and colored locks are a key calling card for those in the spotlight. Exhibit A: Jennifer Aniston's headline-generating honey-blond shag, hyped year after year by fashion magazines as the "best hair in Hollywood. " While jaws flap about First Lady Michelle Obama's bangs or Miley Cyrus' extreme crop, it is something else entirely when the subject moves to supermodel Naomi Campbell's dramatically receding hairline, Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie's ever-growing part or Prince William's bald spot.

I get it. I really do. It's hard to raise brand awareness out there in the ever more cluttered world -- especially when it comes to the fickle and fast-moving apparel business.

From European royal palaces to impoverished African townships, anti-apartheid hero Nelson Mandela was remembered Friday for his tireless fight against injustice and racism and celebrated for the better world he left behind.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, has been on a sartorial roll this week in London - most recently at a gala celebrating the forthcoming Olympic Games. On the arm of husband Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, the former Kate Middleton dazzled in a teal Jenny Packham creation with a matching clutch and sweeping updo. The Friday gala, "Our Greatest Team Rises," celebrated the countrymen and women who will compete before their own come summer. "You, our Olympians and Paralympians, will inspire people up and down this country, and far beyond its borders," William told the crowd in opening remarks. Earlier in the week, another of Kate's choices definitely inspired fashion bloggers and royal watchers, who were wowed by the cream-colored Roland Mouret dress with a high slit she wore at a Tuesday dinner for the Thirty Club of London. Sure, Kate's sophisticated glamour is an attention stealer, but William knows how to compete: At the Olympics event, he took a jab at younger brother Prince Harry.
