Person/Place/Thing

Pharrell Williams/Italy/Paul Smith for Apple Add to ...

Person: Pharrell Williams

Oh, Pharrell, is there anything you can't do?

Hot on the heels of his awkward-yet-sexy cameo on 90210 , the multitalented producer/rapper/designer has created Artst Guild and Gallery, an online community ( artst.com) that invites visual artists to share and discuss their work with likeminded individuals.

Hold up: So "creating" some sort of "art" can bring us one step closer to Pharrell?

Time to get cracking on those macaroni necklaces.

Place: Italy

Italy made moves this week to draw up an official register of surgeons qualified to perform plastic surgery.

The land of party girls turned parliamentarians is also looking into legislation that would make it illegal for girls under 18 to have breast-enhancement surgery.

"At the moment we have a Wild West, cowboy-style system of plastic surgery for young women and this must stop," said a government rep.

Yee-haw! (Anyway, good idea, amici .)

Thing: Paul Smith for Apple accessories

Ridiculously prolific designer Paul Smith is adding even more projects to his overflowing organizer this month.

The preppy Brit has designed a lovely limited-edition glass bottle for Evian, but we're even more excited about his other collabo: a collection of accessories for Apple, including graphically beautiful laptop cases featuring his signature stripes juxtaposed with nature imagery.

They're so pretty, in fact, we predict even the most hardened Luddites will be lining up for them.
