Five days. Thirty-six tweets. Seventy-six thousand followers. That was the lifespan of @CondeElevator, a Twitter account formed for the sole purpose of reporting ludicrous, albeit hilarious, banter from inside the elevator at Condé Nast headquarters in New York. (See excerpts below.) The creator? One of their own – former GQ editor Lauren Bans, who revealed her identity in a spontaneous tweet last month. In an interview with GQ, Bans said, “I came home real drunk last night, read an article about the Goldman Sachs Elevator guy in the New York Times, and then impulsively tweeted my ‘coming out.'”

Let me fill you in: The day Bans sent her signing-off tweet to @CondeElevator for fear of jeopardizing her job, the anonymous @GSElevator account popped up, seemingly tweeting the same sort of gossip – only from the elevators at Goldman Sachs. Two and a half years later, @GSElevator comes out as finance expert John LeFevre, admits he was inspired by @CondeElevator, and signs a six figure book deal with Touchstone.

In the world of high-fashion footwear, few designers possess the power to consistently set tongues wagging the way Giuseppe Zanotti does with his ultra-sexy stilettos. (Just check out a Shoe Cam or two at this Sunday’s Academy Awards, and you’ll see what I mean.) If, like me, you’ve ever flipped through your favorite fashion glossy and wondered how Zanotti’s sporty and sometimes punk aesthetic would translate to a top, a pair of pants, or a dress, wonder no more. The Italian designer has launched a new clothing capsule collection.

The best part? The collection is described as showing a mix of “hip-hop aesthetics, urban influences, and sportswear inspirations,” which might just be a nod to the superstar designer’s DJ past. For his devotees, it means clothes that go from runway to reality with utmost ease.

The jig is up: Perfection does exist. And it lives in Clark Gable‘s multi-bajillion-dollar house. Oh, and it’s a dog person.

399px-George_Clooney_66ème_Festival_de_Venise_2

Or at least according to Esquire‘s Tom Junod:

He has a long neck, upon which his long head, adorned by long ears, wobbles like a tulip. Everything is to scale with him. Many people have long eyelashes; he has lashes as long on the bottom as they are on the top… He has recently showered, and a careful modicum of product lifts his hair off his forehead. He has surprisingly fine hands. He smells like soap.

Okay, okay, rub it in a little more. Clearly Mr. Junod was too distracted by Clooney’s eyelashes to ask about his love life. I suppose that’s how the man of mystery wins everyone over – chivalry and charm. They’re so flattered that personal inquires seem insulting.

So until one brave soul manages to break his shell (has Oprah tried yet?), we’ll just have to settle for perfection.

@RueLaLa Holiday Dog Regram Sweepstakes

Official Rules

 

NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. A PURCHASE DOES NOT IMPROVE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING.

Sweepstakes may only be entered in or from the 50 United States and the District of Columbia, and entries originating from any other jurisdiction are not eligible for entry.  This Sweepstakes is governed exclusively by the laws of the United States.  You are not authorized to participate in the Sweepstakes if you are not located within the United States.

Limit: You may regram each Regram Photo once per day during the Sweepstakes Period, and each regram with the proper hashtag and the tag @ruelala will be counted as one (1) entry, for a maximum of five (5) entries during the Sweepstakes Period.  There is a limit of one (1) entry per person/Instagram account per day during the Sweepstakes Period.  If you enter the Sweepstakes using a mobile device on a wireless service provider’s network (as opposed to on a Wi-Fi network), your wireless service provider’s text and data rates may apply.  Please consult your wireless-service provider regarding its pricing plans.  Multiple entrants are not permitted to share the same Instagram account.  Any attempt by any entrant to obtain more than the stated number of entries by using multiple/different Instagram accounts, identities, registrations and logins, or any other methods will void that entrant’s entries and that entrant may be disqualified.

 

Proof of submission will not be deemed to be proof of receipt by Sponsor. All entries become the sole and exclusive property of the Sponsor and receipt of entries will not be acknowledged or returned.

  1. Start/End Dates. Sweepstakes begins at 11:00 am ET on November 10, 2014 and ends at 11:59 pm ET on November 18, 2014 (“Sweepstakes Period”).
  2. Eligibility. Participation in the Sweepstakes is open only to legal residents of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia who are 18 or older. The Sweepstakes is void elsewhere and where prohibited, taxed or restricted by law. Employees, officers and directors of Retail Convergence.com, LP (“Sponsor”), and its parent company and related companies, affiliates, subsidiaries, divisions, partners, advertising and promotion agencies, and any manufacturers or distributors of Sweepstakes materials (collectively, all of the foregoing, the “Released Parties”), and their immediate family members (parents, children, siblings, spouse) or members of the same household (whether related or not) of such employees/officers/directors are not eligible to enter. You are not authorized to participate in the Sweepstakes if you are not located within the United States or the District of Columbia. All federal, state and local laws and regulations apply.
  3. Winner Selection. Five (5) winners will be selected in a random drawing from all eligible entries received (the “Winners”). There will be a maximum of five (5) Winners. Winners will be decided on or about November 19, 2014. Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received for the drawing. Determination of Winners is at the sole discretion of the Sponsor. By entering the Sweepstakes, entrants fully and unconditionally agree to be bound by these rules and the decisions of Sponsor, which will be final and binding in all matters relating to the Sweepstakes.
  4. Prizes. A maximum of five (5) prizes are being awarded – one (1) prize will be awarded based on the theme of each Regram Photo, as determined by Sponsor. The prizes are as follows: Beats By Dr. Dre Headphones: $170 Average Retail Value (“ARV”); Jawbone Jambox Black Diamond: $500 ARV; Kenneth Jay Lane Pearl Necklace: $49.99 ARV; 18”x18” Pillow: $34.50 ARV; and Ray Ban Aviator Sunglasses: $169.99 ARV. The Total ARV of Prizes is: $924.48.  Prizes are non-transferable.  No substitutions or cash redemptions.  In the case of unavailability of any prize, Sponsor reserves the right to substitute a prize of equal or greater value. All federal, state and local taxes and unspecified expenses are the sole responsibility of the Winners.

 

If no or less than five eligible entries are received during the Sweepstakes Period, then no prizes or only the number of eligible entries received will be awarded a prize.

 

Winner acknowledges that the Sponsor, Released Parties and all other businesses affiliated with this Sweepstakes and their agents do not make, nor are in any manner responsible for any warranty, representations, expressed or implied, in fact or in law, relative to the quality, conditions, fitness or merchantability of any aspect of the prize being offered.

 

AN ENTRANT is not a winner of any prize, even if the SWEEPSTAKES SHOULD so indicate, unless and until entrant’s eligibility, and winner(s) have been verified and entrant has been notified that verification is complete.  Sponsor will not accept screen shots or other evidence of winning in lieu of its validation process.

 

  1. Notification. Sponsor will contact potential Winners by posting a comment from @ruelala to the potential Winner’s Regram Photo entry with instructions to contact Sponsor to begin the process of eligibility verification, prior to prize claim. All instructions provided by Sponsor must be correctly followed and completed with the time period indicated in such notification. The potential Winners will be required to respond to the comment within 1 day of receipt.  Potential Winners must continue to comply with all terms and conditions of these Official Rules, and winning is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements. If a potential Winner cannot be contacted, or fails to complete and respond to the comment within the required time period, if any prize or prize notification is returned as undeliverable, if any potential Winner rejects his/her prize or in the event of noncompliance with these Sweepstakes rules and requirements, such prize will be forfeited and may be awarded to the next eligible entry received. Upon prize forfeiture, no compensation will be given.  Limit one prize per person or household.
  2. License/Usage. By entering the Sweepstakes, each entrant fully and unconditionally agrees to be bound by these Official Rules, which will be final and binding in all matters relating to the Sweepstakes. By entering, each entrant agrees to the use of his/her name, address (city and state), photograph, picture, portrait, voice, likenesses, biographical information, and/or statements for purposes of advertising, trade, or promotion in any media (now known or hereafter known) throughout the world in perpetuity, without further compensation, notification or permission, unless prohibited by law. Entries may be cut, edited, reformatted, rearranged, combined with other material and/or otherwise modified, in Sponsor’s sole and absolute discretion. Nothing contained herein shall be deemed to obligate Sponsor to make use of any of the rights granted herein and each entrant and Winner waives any right to inspect or approve any such use of any and every nature and kind. If any Winner is deemed a minor in his/her jurisdiction of residence, then such prize will be awarded to such Winner’s parent or legal guardian.
  3. Release. By participating, each entrant and Winner agrees to release, indemnify and hold harmless Sponsor, Instagram, and the Released Parties from any and all liability, for loss, harm, damage, injury, cost or expense whatsoever including without limitation, property damage, personal injury and/or death which may occur in connection with, preparation for, travel to, or participation in Sweepstakes, or possession, acceptance and/or use or misuse of prize or participation in any Sweepstakes-related activity and for any claims based on publicity rights, defamation, invasion of privacy, copyright or trademark infringement, or other intellectual property-related cause of action, breach of contract and/or merchandise delivery. Sponsor, Instagram, nor any Released Parties are responsible for any damages, taxes, or expenses that Winner(s) might incur as a result of this Sweepstakes or receipt of prize. Entrants who do not comply with these Official Rules, or attempt to interfere with this Sweepstakes in any way, may be disqualified.
  4. Additional Terms. In case of dispute as to identity of entrant, entry will be declared made by the authorized account holder of the email address submitted at time of entry. “Authorized Account Holder” is defined as the natural person who is assigned an email address by an Internet access provider, online service provider, or other organization (e.g., business, educational, institution, etc.) responsible for assigning email addresses or the domain associated with the submitted email address. Any attempted form of entry other than as set forth above is prohibited; no automatic, programmed, robotic or similar means of entry are permitted. Sponsor, Released Parties, or Instagram are responsible for technical, hardware, software, telephone or other communications malfunctions, errors or failures of any kind, lost or unavailable network connections, web-site, Internet, or ISP availability, unauthorized human intervention, traffic congestion, incomplete or inaccurate capture of entry information (regardless of cause) or failed, incomplete, garbled, jumbled or delayed computer transmissions which may limit one’s ability to enter the Sweepstakes, including any injury or damage to participant’s or any other person’s computer relating to or resulting from participating in this Sweepstakes or downloading any materials in this Sweepstakes. Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to cancel, terminate, modify, extend or suspend this Sweepstakes should (in its sole discretion) virus, bugs, non-authorized human intervention, fraud or other causes beyond its control corrupt or affect the administration, security, fairness or proper conduct of the Sweepstakes. In case of termination, Sponsor will select the Winner from all eligible entries received prior to and/or after (if appropriate) the action taken by Sponsor. Sponsor reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to disqualify any individual it finds, in its sole discretion, to be tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Sweepstakes or website.  Sponsor may prohibit an entrant from participating in the Sweepstakes or winning a prize if, in its sole discretion, it determines that said entrant is attempting to undermine the legitimate operation of the Sweepstakes by cheating, hacking, deception, or other unfair playing practices (including the use of automated quick entry programs) or intending to annoy, abuse, threaten or harass any other entrants or Sponsor representatives. There is no purchase or sales presentation required to participate.  A purchase does not increase odds of winning.  Sponsor is not responsible if Sweepstakes cannot take place or if any prize cannot be awarded due to travel cancellations, delays or interruptions due to acts of God, acts of war, natural disasters, weather or acts of terrorism or for any other reason outside Sponsor’s reasonable control. No more than the stated number of prizes will be awarded.
