Safe Deposit Box

No one knows better than fashion's finest that charity is always in vogue. To prove it, some of the world's most stylish celebs from fashion, music and entertainment have partnered with megabrand H&M and Designers Against AIDS to create Fashion Against AIDS, a special-edition series of T-shirts celebrating sex—of the safe variety. High-wattage names like Dita von Teese, Yoko Ono, Estelle, N.E.R.D, Roisin Murphy, Katy Perry and Cyndi Lauper lent their time and talent to help design these frisky creations that serve as a reminder to keep your wits about you when enjoying life's carnal pleasures. The best thing about the 80s-inspired slogan tees? Twenty-five percent of the campaign sales will be donated to projects promoting HIV/AIDS awareness. Fashion and charity aren't mutually exclusive, and we adore anything that says it loud and proud. Available in nearly 1000 H&M stores in 30 countries beginning May 28.

Camping Out

The man of the hour was surely smiling at the motley crew who assembled at the Chateau Marmont last night for the L.A. launch of The Stephen Sprouse Book (Rizzoli), by Mauricio and Roger Padilha. Only in L.A. could you get Courtney Love, Dita Von Teese, super-stylist Arianne Phillips, Tony Ward, Tatum O'Neal, original catwoman Julie Newmar, 70-something sex bomb Mamie Van Doren and the trantastic Holly Woodlawn in the same room.

Some moments: When asked by photogs if they could take her pic, Courtney Love shouted, "Fuck yeah! I'm skinny. Take it!" Later she went up to Phillipe Blond, who was wearing custom-made Christian (as in Louboutin) for Phillipe feather shoes, and said "Omigod, where did you get those?" "Christian made them for me." "You're a man girl!" And with that, she gave him a huge kiss....
