Items Du Jour: Anja Rubik Gets Engaged, Lady Gaga Makes Unicorns Sexy

Anja Rubik for Fendi-- Victoria Beckham covers February's issue of Vogue UK looking rather bare-faced and less glamorous than usual. Marking her sixth solo Vogue cover, the singer-turned-fashion designer talks about her style's evolution and -- more importantly -- what it's like to wake up next to David Beckham.

-- Hilary Swank is one Oscar-winning actress who actually is down-to-earth: the woman loves a good bargain, and isn't ashamed of -- gasp -- clipping coupons. If only she had shopping secrets to scoring designer labels...

-- Anja Rubik stars in her third consecutive Fendi campaign, shot (of course) by Karl Lagerfeld.

-- Speaking of Anja, the model's agency recently announced her Christmas engagement to fellow model Sasha Knezevic. As if there aren't enough super hot couples to be jealous of.

-- Lady Gaga treated her monsters to a nice holiday surprise with details of her upcoming album. More importantly, she posted a preview of the album art, which features her rocking a unicorn-blazoned jean jacket that reads, "Born This Way." Oh, and she has completely ditched pants -- literally.

2010 Holiday Gift Guide Giveaway: Zune HD

Zune HD

The  may have made its debut last year, but it's still a damn good PMP that doesn't get all the love that it deserves--seriously, just check out our Zune HD review. With the recent launch of Windows Phone 7, and Zune on Xbox 360, the brand has gotten a lot of play recently, and we think the Zune HD is more than worthy of a spot on our 2010 Holiday Gift Guide. Microsoft came through with a superb device with a fantastic service behind it to match. In fact, we’ve said it many time that, in our opinion, for someone that truly loves music, Zune is the best deal around.

There's also an app marketplace that lets you download games, Twitter and Facebook integration, and more.

The Zune HD retails for $349 for the 64GB, $269 for the 32GB, and $199 for the 16GB model - however, Amazon’s got a great sale on the Zune HD that’ll put the 32GB model into your hands for $203 ($63 off,) the 16GB model will run you $149 ($50 off,) and the 64GB model for $314 ($30 off.)

Frugal Shopper Selena Gomez

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrities, Fashion Designers, News,

Selena Gomez refuses to splash out on expensive clothes. The Disney starlet is very sensible when it comes to her money and doesn't see the point of paying out for designer items when she can get something similar for much less.

"When it comes to shopping I love a bargain. I don't usually spend over the $20 mark. I feel so much better buying a top for $20 that isn't so different from the one that costs $200. It's really rare that I buy something expensive, and if I do, I think about it over and over before splashing out."

When she goes to glamorous events, the <i>Wizards of Waverley Place</i> actress borrows designer outfits because she knows she won't wear them again: "When you see me on the red carpet, I'm usually in outfits that I've picked out and borrowed, and that I probably won't wear a second time, so I give them back. Normally the outfits are too expensive for me to own anyway."

One dress she won't be giving back is the gown she wore in her music video "A Year Without Rain," as she is auctioning it off for charity. "It's a beautiful dress. It was obviously a very important part of the video - we wanted it to be very beautiful and very flowy and I got so many great comments on it so I thought it would be awesome to give it to charity." The profits from the Catherine Dean dress will go towards UNICEF's mission to help underprivileged kids worldwide.
