Now that the leaves are starting to turn and pumpkin spice lattes are back in our lives, it’s fair to say that fall has well and truly fallen upon us. Of course, this new season allows us to embrace a whole new wardrobe, and while most people focus their attention on their fall clothing, they seem to forget that this season was practically invented for cozy accessories. Don’t believe us? This is how you can rock your beanie this fall.
All About The Color
When you think of fall, you probably think of burnt oranges and browns, right? Well, it might be time to mess with the system a little bit. Although beanies are associated with cold weather, that doesn’t mean that you have to embrace these cold colors. This fall, it’s all about the color, and it’s all about the bright and bold beanies that will show the world that you’re styling out from your head to your toes.
Styling With Streetwear
Let’s be honest, streetwear is all the rage right now. It seems as though you can’t walk down the street without coming across someone who is rocking a long trench with some old-school sneakers, and you’ll be happy that you can continue to rock this look yourself with the addition of a beanie. Play with colors and fabrics, and just let the streetwear style speak for itself.
Take It Monochrome
Although there are many people in this world who love color, there are others who prefer to be a little moodier. So, why not take yourself back to the monochrome life? All-black ensembles are going to be all the rage this season, which means that you can team up your all-black outfit with your black beanie. Time to get moody, people.
Have you got your beanies ready?
40 Questionable Things Celebrities Have at Home
From mansions filled with Barbie dolls to toddlers with Bentleys, we take a look at 40 questionable things that celebrities have at home.
Johnny Depp’s Barbie Collection
Someone with an unexpected collection that’s gathering dust in his home is the legendary Johnny Depp. The Pirates of the Caribbean star is an avid collector of Barbies, and reportedly owns dozens of limited edition dolls. Apparently, the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory actor even used to practice his eclectic range of voices using Barbies.
Demi Moore’s Porcelain Dolls
Did you think you could read this list and not come across some creepy dolls? Of all the questionable things people have in their houses, creepy dolls are always there! Here we have actress Demi Moore, who owns thousands of porcelain dolls. The Ghost actress has over 2,000 fine porcelain vintage dolls — and of course — a huge dollhouse. Moore’s ex-husband, Ashton Kutcher, has confirmed that the dolls are in every part of the house. Understandably, he was pretty freaked out by them!
Drake’s Stingray Skin Mattress
Here’s a strange item you might not have even noticed in Drake’s house. The Canadian rapper sleeps on a mattress made from compressed leather, polished wood, suede, and brass adornments. How luxurious! The mattress costs $390,000 and takes a whopping 600 hours to create. Even weirder, the fancy mattress is also made of horsehair and stingray skin. We aren’t sure we could get a good night’s sleep thinking about the skin of stingrays — that’s a luxury too far-fetched for us.
Kylie Jenner’s Neon Plastic Sign
This is the first of several Kardashian-Jenner entries on this list. There’s been some back and forth regarding Kylie Jenner’s status as a billionaire. Forbes magazine announced her as one before rescinding the title and accused the beauty mogul of fudging her accounts. Either way, the youngest Jenner has enough cash to splash out on some questionable home décor. For example, Jenner has a neon sign that says “PLASTIC” in her glam room that set her back a whopping $10,000. While this is technically a piece of modern art created by Beau Dunn, it’s also just a neon sign…
Rosie O’Donnell’s Happy Meal Toys
Comedian Rosie O’Donnell had an Emmy award-winning talk show, but on the side, she fills her home with McDonald’s Happy Meal toys. That’s right — the celeb has over 2,500 toys that she started collecting when she toured as a stand-up comic in the ‘80s. O’Donnell now gets sent the toys from fans and McDonald’s themselves. She recalls, “They sent me all of the 101 Dalmatians […] I have to say the level of joy I felt when I held all 101 in my hands is sort of indescribable.”
Janet Jackson’s Porcelain Pigs
Of course, Michael Jackson had a ranch full of strange and questionable items. So who would be surprised that his sister, Janet, also has some weird things stashed away? The “When I Think of You” singer has a room full of porcelain pigs. Jackson told Contact Music that she has “always wanted a hobby,” so she decided randomly to collect pigs. Once people started adding to her collection, the singer was overwhelmed with the porcelain porkies.
Amanda Seyfried’s Taxidermy
We have to confess — this one shocked us. The angelic-looking star of Mamma Mia, Amanda Seyfried, has a house full of stuffed dead animals. Taxidermy is the art of preserving a deceased animal’s body, but it’s usually for museums rather than households. Speaking about her collection, the Les Miserables actress said, “I have a miniature zebra … an owl named Beatrix, a chick called Linda, and a deer called Sha’ Dynasty.” The actress spends thousands on these preserved bodies. Eeeek!
Rod Stewart’s Train Collection
As we know, celebrities have lots of money and time on their hands, so perhaps it isn’t that surprising that they fill their homes with odd items. “Maggie May” crooner Rod Stewart has built entire cities in his home so he can enjoy his extensive model train collection. One of Stewart’s model railroads contains 100 buildings built by the British singer himself. The “Handbags and Gladrags” singer pities people without his hobby, calling it “The most supreme relaxation.”
Flava Flav’s Bronze O.J. Statue
Back when O.J. Simpson was still best known for his football skills, he commissioned a bronze statue of himself for his backyard. Of course, after losing a civil trial to the families of Ron Goldman and Nicole Brown, the ex-footballer had to relinquish the statue. O.J.’s belongings were eventually auctioned off, and radio host Mancow Muller bought the statue for $3,250. He passed it onto rapper Flava Flav, who plans to give it back to O.J. himself.
Kris Jenner’s Pile of NDAs
Honestly, we’re surprised this isn’t more of a common practice among the celeb set. Momager to the stars Kris Jenner keeps a stack of non-disclosure agreements — or NDAs — on a table in her foyer. This way, any guests can sign over their right to speak about what goes on in the hallowed halls of the Kardashian-Jenner households. Always polite, the formidable Ms. Jenner has a small sign above the papers that reads, “What we say here, what we see here, let it stay here when we leave here.”
Lady Gaga’s Ghost Detectors
Are you surprised to find out that pop extraordinaire Lady Gaga is absolutely terrified of ghosts? The singer fully believes in paranormal activity, and is certain that a ghost named Ryan is haunting her. Yes, you read that right. A ghost named Ryan. Anyway, the flamboyant pop-star has shelled out $47,000 for a state of the art Electro Magnetic Field detecting machine, which supposedly identifies ghosts. The singer apparently has her hotel rooms and stages scanned for ghosts in advance. It’s time to call Ghostbusters!
Paris Hilton’s Replica Dog Mansion
Paris Hilton brought the ‘tiny toy dog as an accessory’ trend to the mainstream. The hotel heiress could be seen around town clutching a little pup or carrying one of her brood in her designer purse. Of course, these were some spoiled doggos. Hilton spend the price of a human home on a replica miniature dog mansion. The mini-mansion — worth $325,000 — includes air-conditioning, mini designer furniture, heating, a spiral staircase, a chandelier, and a fully stocked dog wardrobe.
Tom Cruise’s Sonogram Machine
A-List actor Tom Cruise has had quite a ride when it comes to his personal life. The Mission Impossible star has been in several high profile relationships, and has faced some serious controversy regarding his beliefs. Back when the actor was jumping on couches and declaring his love for actress Katie Holmes, he decided to buy a sonogram machine. Obviously Tom Cruise has no idea how to use medical equipment, and many doctors criticized his purchase in the media.
Marilyn Manson’s Skeletons
Here’s another celebrity that we expected to have questionable items in their home. Goth rocker Marilyn Manson was accused in 2007 of wasting his band’s money on disturbing purchases. Manson’s former keyboard player, Stephen Bier – known as Madonna Wayne Gacy – claimed that Manson bought a real skeleton. Bier alleged that the skeleton was made into a chandelier, and that Manson had purchased others. This is seriously dark, and absolutely a questionable item to have in your home.
50 Cent’s Casino
We’ve seen a lot of weird celebrity collections and items, but what about extravagant celebrity amenities? Rapper, actor, and producer 50 Cent owned a Connecticut mansion that featured 21 bedrooms, 25 bathrooms, and an unlicensed casino. From the looks of things, the rapper had a casino-style game room, complete with a pole. The house belonged to Mike Tyson’s ex-wife before, and 50 Cent struggled to sell it for over a decade! There must not be a very huge market for living room blackjack.
Kim and Kanye’s Futuristic Sinks
Onlookers have poked fun at Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s minimalist home, with some even calling it “the sunken place,” referencing Jordan Peele’s race fuelled horror movie Get Out. When the reality star posted a tour of her home, many fans couldn’t understand how the couple’s futuristic sinks worked. Thankfully, Kim took to Instagram to show fans that water did drain from the tap into a slit, rather than a bowl. Still, we have to wonder — why?
Mike Tyson’s Bengal Tigers
Controversial boxer Mike Tyson was the real-life, OG tiger king before any of us had heard of Joe Exotic. Looking back, the boxer regrets his decision to own three Bengal tigers saying, “I was foolish. There’s no way you can domesticate these cats 100%.” The former heavyweight boxing world champion recently sold his tiger, Kenya, who had been with him for 16 years. The big cat ripped someone’s arm off in another echo of Netflix’s wildly popular documentary Tiger King.
Leonardo DiCaprio’s Action Figures
Another celebrity with the time and money to create an impressive collection is Academy Award-winning actor Leonardo DiCaprio. The Titanic star collects action figures and collectibles including figurines from E.T, The A-Team, Planet of the Apes, and 2001: A Space Odyssey. The actor also has a collection of vintage Star Wars figures and rare He-Man items. The actor occasionally auctions items from his collection and donates the money to his environmental charity — the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation.
Shaquille O’Neal’s Superman Décor
Former NBA player Shaquille O’Neal is over seven-foot-tall, and the athlete needs a house that can accommodate him. O’Neal’s 1993 mansion featured a two-story-tall fireplace, oversized chairs, and a 30-foot wide bed. Not just content with a super-sized home, the star also chose Superman-themed décor. Shaq’s mega bed is around 10 times the size of a California King, which must give him enough space to really relax. Shaq’s house was reportedly sold for $28 million.
Chicago West’s Louis Vuitton Music Box
There’s no denying that the Kardashian-Jenner ladies of Calabasas know how to shop, and they love to give each other ludicrous and unnecessary gifts. For example, momager and grandmother of ten, Kris Jenner, gifted little Chicago West with a Louis Vuitton music box. Kim and Kanye’s third child, Chicago – named after the rapper’s hometown – is now the owner of a $3,350 music box that plays “Rock-A-Bye-Baby.” Just what every home needs.
Markus Persson’s Candy Wall
Creator of video game Minecraft, Markus Persson, has a pretty cool amenity in his $70 million Beverly Hills home. The Swedish programmer and designer has a candy wall in his mansion, boasting $50,000 worth of candy. However, despite the infinite candy and many wild parties, the programmer revealed that he’s actually really bored and lonely. In a series of tweets, he said, “The problem with getting everything is you run out of reasons to keep trying, and human interaction becomes impossible due to imbalance.”
Lady Gaga’s Bowling Alley
As well as having a house full of ghosts, pop queen Lady Gaga also boasts a 1960s era two-lane bowling alley. We have to admit that we never pegged the pint-sized singer as the bowling type, but why else would you build an alley in your home? Gaga’s mansion — which set her back a whopping $23 million — also features a wine cellar, a dressage ring, a theater with a wet bar, and an elevator. We’d have a great time partying at Gaga’s house!
Kris Jenner’s Black Toilet Paper
Kris Jenner is a big fan of monochrome, especially when it comes to interior design. The momager is often seen dressed in black and white, and her homes regularly boast black and white flooring, furniture, and art. And of course, we’re talking about the Kardashian-Jenners here, so they’re bound to take things to the extreme. Enter Kris Jenner’s toilet paper, which is completely black. Hilariously, in an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kim complains that “I like to see what … I’m wiping.”
Ben Stiller’s Original Spock Ears
Benjamin Edward Meara Stiller – known to us as Ben Stiller – is a serious Trekkie. The Zoolander star is a full-on sci-fi nerd and collects Star Trek memorabilia. And what better way to celebrate Star Trek than with a pair of authentic Spock ears? Well, with two pairs! Stiller owns two pairs of Spock ears from the original Star Trek series, both signed by original Spock actor Leonard Nimoy. All we can say to that is, “Live long and prosper!”
True Thompson’s Baby Bentley
The Kardashian-Jenners are an extravagant bunch, and never more so than with their children. Third sibling Khloe Kardashian showed off daughter True Thompson’s pink baby Bentley on Instagram saying, “I’m not sure what’s cuter — the cute teddy bear driving the Bentley truck or True’s cheeks and smile. Thank you Auntie Kimora and family for the precious gift!” It’s important to note that little True couldn’t even walk at the time, as she was only four months old. Beep beep!
Reese Witherspoon’s Antique Linens
This celebrity collection is quite on-brand, as the delightful Reese Witherspoon collects antique linens and embroidered fabrics. No creepy dolls for Reese. No motorbikes clogging up her garage. And no skeletons hanging from the ceiling. We like to imagine the Legally Blonde star draped in extravagantly embroidered quilts, surrounded by lace, beading, and fringe. We’ll admit that this is the habit of a much older lady but as far as we’re concerned, Reese can do whatever she wants.
Stormi Jenner’s Mini Mansion
You remember Paris Hilton’s mini replica mansion for her dogs? Well, take that one step further and you have Stormi Jenner’s mini-mansion. Basically, Kylie — the youngest (and richest) Jenner — bought her only daughter a playhouse, but made sure it came with all the best celebrity amenities. Stormi’s playhouse comes with appliances, a balcony, a working air-conditioner, a fake fireplace, and an outdoor patio! Apparently, the extravagant playhouse reminds Kylie of her own from childhood. Meet you at Stormi’s place?
Leonardo DiCaprio’s Eco Spa
We’ve already seen that Leo collects action figures, but the A-List actor also has some random features in his home. For example, in his Manhattan apartment, you can find a whole host of wellness appliances. DiCaprio’s bathroom boasts a vitamin C infused shower, and ultraviolet lights that sterilize harmful airborne microbes. And that’s not all! The apartment also has a circulated aromatherapy air supply, dawn simulation lighting, and posture-supportive heat reflexology flooring. Wow!
Nicole Kidman’s Car Elevator
Once upon a time, actress Nicole Kidman was married to Tom Cruise but years have passed and now the Moulin Rouge star is happily married to country singer Keith Urban. In their $10 million Chelsea apartment, the celebrity couple has a car elevator. That’s right – these two A-Listers don’t need to walk from their cars into their home, they just sit in the vehicle until an elevator brings them to their apartment door. Although, do these two even drive their own cars?
Celine Dion’s Water Park
Here’s another celebrity mansion with a pretty extravagant feature, even for an A-Lister. French-Canadian singer Celine Dion purchased a 20,000 square foot home in Florida, which includes a full-on water park. We’re not just talking about a slide and jacuzzi here — we’re talking two pools, two water slides, water cannons, and a lazy river! Guests that visit the singer’s home can also enjoy a golf simulator, a tennis court, and 14 different bathrooms. C’est la vie!
Christina Aguilera’s Nightmare Nursery
We have to admit that this one makes us chuckle. Most celebrities tend to go for something more child friendly when they decorate their baby’s first bedroom. Think pastel colors, butterflies, a friendly mural, and a diamond-encrusted crib or two. When decorating son Max’s nursery, powerhouse singer Christina Aguilera went for a completely different aesthetic. The “Beautiful” singer opted for an 11-foot moon statue with a very scary face, and a custom Nintendo mural. We wonder if her little one actually gets any sleep.
Kim and Kanye’s Gold-Plated Toilets
The Kardashian-Wests have enjoyed several homes during their time together, before changing their interior design aesthetic and starting all over again. Before they moved into their “sunken place” minimalist home, the high-class couple spent $2 million renovating their Bel Air mansion. Inspired by their pre-wedding party in Versailles, the rapper and reality star splashed out on four Louis XIV-style gold-plated toilets. Their former house also boasts a gym, movie theater, basketball court, and glam room. We wonder how long those toilets lasted with the new owners.
John Travolta’s Airport Home
How could we forget John Travolta? The actor’s house is actually more of a luxury airport that includes five aircraft, an airplane hangar, and several runways. The Grease star is a qualified pilot who can fly both private and commercial planes, and his house allows him to jet off whenever he fancies. Travolta’s 6,400 square foot mansion has a 1.4-mile runway that leads directly to his front door, so he can park the plane and be on the couch in a matter of minutes.
Michael Jordan’s Infinity Pool Island
Just like fellow basketball player Shaquille O’Neal, former Chicago Bulls all-star Michael Jordan has a dramatic and supersized home with some questionable amenities. For example, Jordan’s Chicago mansion is home to a large infinity pool with its own green island in the center. A small bridge takes people onto the island, where we assume they would recline before taking a photogenic and dramatic dip in the pool. Jordan’s mansion also boasts a tennis court and card tables.
Barbara Streisand’s Basement Mall
This weird celebrity home feature will blow your socks off. Seriously. Living legend Barbara Streisand doesn’t just like to own nice things. The Funny Girl star prefers to organize and store her belongings as if they were in a shop, and her entire basement is basically a quaint mall. The maze of shops underneath Streisand’s home includes an antique shop, a doll shop, a sweet shop, and a station for wrapping gifts. The antique clothes shop even contains the actress’s famous costumes!
Kris Jenner’s Wax Statue
We’ve seen that Kris Jenner isn’t exactly normal when it comes to her interior design tastes — the woman uses black toilet paper for goodness sake. So, we weren’t that surprised to learn that the media mogul has a life-size wax statue of herself as decoration in her home. Second-oldest daughter Kim posted a picture of herself beside the lifelike statue of her mother saying, “This is her exact hairline. I can’t even tell you how creepy and amazing this is.”
Angelina Jolie’s Knife Collection
We all know Angelina Jolie as an Academy Award-winning actress, director, and humanitarian. The powerhouse actress is a Special Envoy for the United Nations, and mother to six children. We do know that Angie has a bit of a dark side, as she was known for wearing a vial of then-husband Billy Bob Thornton’s blood around her neck. With that being said, perhaps it isn’t too surprising that Jolie is an avid knife collector. She got her first dagger when she was 12 years old, and has been collecting ever since.
Kylie Jenner’s Custom Candy
Beauty mogul Kylie Jenner is a huge fan of design, aesthetics, and fashion. With that, she’s often splashing her cash on random items that most ordinary people wouldn’t bother with. The youngest Jenner is a fan of custom candy with – you guessed it – her own face on it. Kylie’s office contains bowls of pink Starbursts and M&Ms decorated with her own likeness. Cute!
Brad Pitt’s World War II Motorbikes
Rich people have way more space than the rest of us when it comes to storing vehicles. Maybe this is why so many of them fill up their houses with rows and rows of cars and motorcycles. In Brad Pitt’s case, the vehicles in question are much more interesting considering that they’re also World War II relics. The award-winning star has an impressive bike collection including a German sidecar motorcycle that he bought in 2015 for $385,000.
Tom Hanks’ Typewriters
Being rich means you can stock up on the things you might have missed out on in your younger years. This is certainly the case for the critically-acclaimed icon, who owns hundreds of typewriters to make up for having “nothing” from his childhood. Hanks owned hundreds of typewriters at one point but is currently cutting down on his huge collection. He describes them as “brilliant combinations of art and engineering,” and got his first one when he was 19 years old.
