Dubai has opened the largest mall in the world. Inside among the designer label stores you'll also find a 10-million-liter aquarium, an amusement park and an ice skating rink. [Material Interest]

We know gays love their female models (because we want to be one), but would you ever invest in one? One company, Beauty Holding, is allowing consumers to buy a stake in a model and
you'll get a share of her earnings for the next year. If we can't get a piece of Jessia Stam, we're hardly interested. [Urban Daddy]

Are high-end labels immune to the woes of the economy? It turns out they're not, and some are looking for new investors. So if you've got a few bucks left over from your Jessica Stam purchase you know where to put them. [The Cut] via [WWD]

The H&M Commes des Garcon line dropped in Tokyo and it was Japanese mayhem.
H&M made a video documenting the uproar. Witness the carnage. [The Cut]

Smell this: Mark Eco is debuting fragrances for men and women, with the men's scent hitting shelves as early as next fall. [WWD]

Turns out Bergamot is a natural deodorant. So spray it on and try to avoid those unsightly pit stains. [BellaSugar]
