WWD reported that the youngest Jenner will walk the runway at New York’s Fashion Week, modeling Avril Lavigne designs! While big sister Kendall (photo, right) is usually the Jenner spotted on the runway, Kylie (photo, left) is no stranger to the modeling scene. The tween appeared in a series of ads for national retailer, Sears.
No doubt she’s talented…but Kylie’s new gig is not by chance. Avril is currently dating the Jenner’s half brother, Brody.

What? Funding terrorism? That’s right, ABC’s Niteline reports that if you buy a “Cooch” instead of a Coach, your money could end up in the hands of gangs or even terrorists.
Knock-off sales cost the United States over $200 billion a year, and one man is determined to put a stop to it. Private investigator, Chris >>>>, is hired by luxury brands to look into possible counterfeit merchandise. Check out the story below….
It’s not just luxury clothing lines that fall victim to the counterfeiters, the prom industry is taken advantage of as well. So, buyer beware…copies are everywhere.

Impression bridal took the formal wear market by storm when they introduced a hot, sexy new prom line…Xcite nearly seven years ago. The company has made waves each season since and has quickly become one the industry’s top prom designers.
This past weekend I had the pleasure of previewing the 2012 line in Cancun, Mexico! Xcite held it’s annual fashion show prom preview in sunny Cancun and invited retailers from all over the continent! Guests enjoyed the weekend at the all-inclusive Cancun Palace resort and sat in on the prom preview fashion show. The new line showcased brand new silhouettes and exquisite bead work, as well as a few old favorites!
If Xcite’s line is any indication of the coming prom season, watch out! This one’s gonna be hot!

Sounds like a great love story, right? According to FOX News, it is a story that may never happen. They report that Mila’s hectic work schedule could interfere with the November 18th Marine Corp Ball date.
Mila famously said “yes” to a YouTube video invite from Sgt. Scott Moore when asked about it on Fox411 last weekend. Mila and Friends With Benefits co-star Justin Timberlake were promoting the new movie when Mila was questioned about the strange proposal. Without even seeing the YouTube video, and without checking her work schedule, she said yes! After some coaxing from Timberlake, of course. Now, reports that Mila might not make it are drawing “Awwws” from all who have heard of this story. Check out the marine’s YouTube proposal!
Side note: CB’s Limited has offered to give Mila a gown for the ball! We are awaiting a response from her manager! We’ll keep you posted!

The 2011 BET Awards were a smash with performances from Chris Brown, Mary J. Blige and Beyonce (abroad). The songstress disappointed some fans with her skyped video from England, where she was performing at the Glastonbury festival. She still rocked the stage though and had bloggers and tweeters alike labeling her “the greatest performer of our time.”
Other notables from the night…the first ever “tie” on the BET Awards was given to the Smith kids. Jaden and Willow shared the trophy in the Youngstars category.

Premiering April 29th, Disney’s Prom promises a good time for the whole family. Aimee Teegarden (of Friday Night Lights fame) stars in this comedic portrayal of teens in the peak of high school excitement…the prom.
Movie Insider gives this run-down on the film:
Several intersecting stories unfold at one high school as the big dance approaches; Prom portrays the precarious passage from high school to independence as some relationships unravel and others ignite. For Nova Prescott (Aimee Teegarden), it’s a battle of wills as she finds herself drawn to the guy (Thomas McDonell) who gets in the way of her perfect prom. Fellow seniors Mei (Yin Chang) and Tyler (De’Vaughn Nixon) harbor secrets, while others face all the insecurity and anticipation that surrounds one of high school’s most seminal events.

A shirtless Chris Brown stormed off the set of ABC’s Good Morning America after an interview with Robin Roberts. Apparently the topic of Rihanna is still a touchy one for the singer.
Roberts inquired of the 2009 incident and this was Brown’s reply:
“It’s not really a big deal to me now, as far as that situation. I think I’m past that in my life. Today’s the album day, so that’s what I’m focused on.”
When pressed again, Brown seemed aggravated and responded:
“This album is what I want people to hear and people to really get into, so definitely this album is what I want them to talk about and not stuff that happened two years ago.”
Sources say Brown returned to his dressing room after he performed a song and proceeded to throw things. Security was called and Brown then ripped his shirt off and left the studio, steaming. He was slated to perform two songs on GMA, but after he threw his HULK-like fit, the second performance did not take place.

Can you imagine a keg instead of a water cooler at your workplace? Shot glasses instead of coffee mugs? In honor of St. Patrick’s Day (another awesome holiday that gives us an excuse to consume alcohol), I bring up an article first reported by NBC. It seems that the new workplace trend is to work while tipsy.
The start-up company Yelp, headquarted in San Franciso, is equipped with a keg refrigerator and supplies its employees with an endless supply of beer, reports Bloomberg’s Businessweek. But there is a stipulation…each employee must sign in using an IPAD app. It records each ounce they consume. Who would have thought there’s an app for THAT!
“If you’re at the top of the leader board consistently, I don’t know if that’s a place that you’d want to be,” said Eric Singley, director of Yelp consumer and mobile products. “Luckily, that hasn’t really even been an issue.”
Share this with your boss, no need to thank me.

Teen heartthrobs Selena Gomez and Justin Beiber walked the red carpet looking like prom king and queen on Oscar night. The new Hollywood couple made their debut on Sunday, not to the surprise of anyone. There have been rampant rumors and countless snapshots proving the fact, but it’s official. The two held hands and kissed for the cameras.
Selena’s red-hot Dolce & Gabbana gown stunned the crowd while Beiber’s matching hanky was the perfect compliment.
