Pharrell tweeted a thank you to “whoever bought [his] Grammy hat on eBay for $44,100.” Arby’s quickly tweeted back to come clean–they were the anonymous donors who put up the cash!  “You’re welcome,” they wrote. “We’re HAPPY to support a great cause & get our hat back.” They money will benefit Williams’s From One Hand to AnOTHER charity. (Pharrell Williams Twitter)

Sex and the City 2 Casting Call

Kristin Davis and the rest of the Sex and The City gang had a wardrobe of enviable heels, many of which we’d love to get our hands on even today. But Davis, who played the conservative Charlotte on the popular HBO series, says that she regrets the message she sent women by rocking stilettos all the time. “I do feel guilt about the heels. It did seem we were trying to say to women, ‘You should be wearing heels like these,'” she said in an interview with the Sunday Telegraph“But we definitely weren’t. Were they beautiful shoes? Yes. Were they appropriate for the characters? Yes, that’s what women like that wear. But it became a bigger picture thing, where it seemed women should be wearing them every day.” (Daily Mail)
Kendall Jenner Walking for Givenchy

The second-youngest Jenner babe hit the runway for Givenchy this weekend, which, when I think about it, makes perfect sense. Riccardo Tisci is practically BFFs with her older sister, Kim. Kim missed the show, but Instagrammed a snap of her little sis on the catwalk to show her support: “Best part was my baby watching & cheering on my baby sister!!! So sad I missed it! #Family #Givenchy.” aw. (Kim Kardashian Instagram)
