Mercedes Benz SLS AMG

David Coulthard was called to the Isle of Man to pilot an SLS AMG for a scene in a 3-D film. To ensure that DC could strut the coupe’s stuff, some of the island’s roads were closed to the public.

“Bardot” By Bernhardt

Produced by Bernhardt, designer Jaime Hayon’s latest sofa and armchair set, Bardot, follows curves influenced by the flow of the human body. Hayon attempts to make full, comfortable pieces that don’t overwhelm small spaces yet still maintain a generous feel.

Wesley Snipes 3 years”upheld” for tax evasion

Wesley Snipes’ three-year prison sentence for failing to file tax returns — resulting in an unpaid tax bill of around $17 million — was “well within” the “considerable discretion” of a U.S. District Court, a federal appeals court has decided.
