Tiffany Chou in the June 2012 issues of Marie Claire and Redbook!

It’s no surprise that many of the biggest fashion books are featuring Tiffany Chou’s designs in their latest summer issues – her Maui-inspired pieces are perfect when paired with easy, breezy summer ensembles (just take it from the stylists for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue!) like this adorable swim spread in the June issue of Redbook:

In the June issue of Marie Claire, Tiffany was asked to share her most coveted travel beauty essentials and everyone at LBG is now vying for the Island Essence Mango & Coconut body scrub she mentions in the feature. Thanks for the tips, Tiffany!

CHARRIOL featured in the June issue of W Magazine

A few years back, big mens-inspired gold watches came into trend, and since most of us here at LBG invested in a large, statement-making timepiece, we are extremely happy to see that this trend doesn’t seem to be going anywhere! W Magazine is the go-to for what you MUST wear NOW, so we were so pleased to see that they included CHARRRIOL’s Yellow Gold plated and Stainless Steel watch in a Country themed spread in their June issue. Don’t you love the Stainless Steel detailing?

Tiffany Chou featured (again!) in Lucky Magazine

Nick Cannon Loves CHARRIOL’s Force watch

As host of  “America’s Got Talent”, Nick Cannon’s suit uniform got a dapper upgrade with CHARRIOL’s Force watch, which Cannon wore during a recent taping of the hit show. We can’t wait for the show to air – and while Howard Stern’s antics will most likely be the highlight of each episode, we have no doubt this CHARRIOL watch will steal a few moments as well! 

Erica Courtney gets an amazing (and well-deserved) shout out in JCK Magazine

As the most recent issue of JCK Magazine mentions, it takes a force of nature to avert attention from “Mad Men’s” Jon Hamm on the red carpet. At the show’s Season Five premiere, Hamm’s longtime girlfriend Jennifer Westfeldt accomplished this with the help of a striking, green dress and Erica Courtney’s Tourmaline and Diamond drop earrings. The article mentions that earrings that make a statement don’t have to be huge, and even offer up a, “Well played, Erica Courtney!” We second that sentiment!
