Rebecca Minkoff has succeeded in entering our closets and making our accessories the subject of conversations, but now she is going one step forward and making our boyfriends irresistibly stylish. That's right ladies there will be a line designed by Rebecca named Ben Minkoff. The line which will hit stores in October 2010 will feature Leather bags that can be converted from messengers to weekenders for those impromptu sleepovers. The line will also feature small leather goods to ensure that your man's hard earned money is kept as sexy as he is. Ben Minkoff will surely be on my man's Christmas list.
Lebron "King" James was an NBA fan favorite across the board until 24 hours ago when he announced he'd leave his hometown and first term NBA team, the Cleaveland Cavaliers for the Miami Heat. The people of Ohio and it's vicinity are "hurt" and feel "betrayed" by it's former hero. No one can understand why Lebron would choose a team who already has at least two franchise players other than the idea that he may just want to be in Miami and with his friends. The backlash for the self-proclaimed "King" has already begun with assault on Lebron and his image by Cleaveland Cavaliers team owner Dan Gilbert writing an open letter available on the team website. Many even outside of the area in places that were never considered in his choices feel it was a dirty move. Will the "King" need a strong strategic public relations campaign to accompany him at his new home? Or will his talents carry him through to his first NBA Championship? The fact that the Miami Heat has already sold out it's season tickets says favors the latter. For now.
