As lavish birthday gifts go, it’s hard to top this one: Naomi Campbell received an island vacation home for her 41st birthday from her Russian billionaire boyfriend Vladislav Doronin, according to numerous online reports. It’s shaped like the Egyptian Eye of Horus on a location known as Cleopatra Island in Turkey’s Gulf of Gökova.

Spanish Architect Luis de Garrido, who specializes in sustainable building, designed Eco-House Horus to be completely energy, water, and food self-sufficient. As with his other projects, he relied on careful bioclimatic design to solve efficiency challenges.

The resulting eye-shaped, dome-shaped house has no less than 25 bedrooms and five lounges. If the world ends, Campbell and Doronin and a few dozen of their lucky friends just might be able to survive.

When it came to designing Natalie Portman's engagement ring, the star’s choreographer fiancé, Benjamin Millepied, relied on his leading lady and the art of ballet for inspiration. Looking to create a one-of-a-kind love token to reflect Portman’s unique sensibilities, Millepied called on former dancer pal and jewelry designer Jamie Wolf. “Ben was exceptionally thoughtful and dedicated and patient to make sure we had everything right,” Wolf explained to InStyle. “We wanted everything about the ring to speak to things that are important to Natalie.” The glittering diamond-encrusted design centers around an antique diamond, surrounded by certified conflict-free stones and made of recycled platinum — thus appealing to Portman’s earth-friendly and vegan lifestyle. And much like Millepied, the designer always incorporates her own dance discipline into her pieces.

I'm sure Miss Portman must be VERY happy with her beau's choice! :)

In this digital age, you’d be hard set to find anyone still using rubber bands. But despite the stretchy stuff’s near extinction, that doesn’t mean the forgotten office supply can’t find an inspired new use. Case in point, New Yorkarchitect Margarita Milevahas found a brilliant new way to turn more than a handful of discarded rubber bands into incredible accessories & apparel. With her past works already gaining cred in the fashion world, it’s been her recent unveil of the "RB Dress" that’s really blown away both her peers and public. Inspired by painter Paul Klee and the Bauhaus movement, Mileva painstakingly transformed 14,235 rubber bands into a cocktail-ready dress able to rival any piece of designer haute couture.

Angelina Jolie's best-kept beauty secret is Shea Terra Organics! Shea butter has the highest absorption rate currently known of all oils. That means, that unlike coconut oil, cocoa butter, and similiar ingredients which merely sit on skin's surface, shea butter actually penetrates deep into the skin where it is needed to improve skin conditions. Its ability to absorb into skin assures its delivery of vitamins A and E as well as cinnamic acid which it is high in. Miombo Mango is a dedication to the dwindling Miombo forest. To promote sustainable living in the region we incorporate an extract made from the Miombo mango tree that is traditionally used to smooth skin. A decadent, sweet all natural mango fruit extract seals the deal for the fruit lover in you. Shea Terra Organics' fragrances come exclusively from plant essential oils and pure fruit extracts. People who are allergic to fragrances are generally allergic to them because they are synthetic chemicals. 99% Natural. Contains 40% Organic Shea Butter. Serious, anti-aging, dry skin formula for all day moisturization. Decadent, all natural mango extract whips this lotion into a dreamy, sweet blend.

When Seattle-based artist Adrienne Antonson describes her artworks as being “resourceful, sustainable, meticulous and pretty,” she certainly has a point. Indeed, this might well be the perfect description for the insects she creates, using only human hair and glue. Antonson toys with her audience’s emotions, making them want to take a closer look while at the same time suppressing a feeling of disgust. While some of her insects, like the fly trio above, seem only too real, others are clearly objects of Antonson’s imagination. Separated from her subject by only a hair’s breadth, Antonson’s work has an intimate quality, as she uses only hair from close friends, family or her own body. In the process of creating the insects, the time spent on each piece naturally connects the artist with her materials as well as those who donated them. She explains: “The meticulous process of working with such an intimate fiber inspires a meditation on relationships and connectivity.” Using recycled and sustainable materials for all her artworks plays an important role for Antonson, and, as suggested, human hair is a very personal material to work with. Antonson’s sculptures have been displayed across the U.S.
