Yes, You Need This Mini Hairdryer

Jun/24/2013 at 06:00 AM ET

Whenever we travel, we’re faced with two options: go without a hairdryer, meaning we’ll have to use the crappy one the hotel has (if they even have one) and potentially spend the vacation looking like this. Alternatively, we have to pack our big hairdryer, taking away valuable real estate room clothes and shoes, forcing us to check a bag. Neither option is appealing. Which is why we don’t plan to go on another trip without this portable (and super-pretty!) hairdryer.

From trendsetter to tech nerd! Polaroid creative director Lady Gaga‘s innovations for the brand are finally hitting stores after their splashy unveiling in January. Gaga’s first product under the Grey Label line, the GL10 instant printer, was launched at an event at Bloomingdale’s N.Y.C. flagship store; the $170 device will be sold exclusively at the department store until mid-June, when it will also be available on HSN and at Costco. Fans can stop by the Lexington Avenue Bloomingdale’s to experiment with the printer, which connects to Bluetooth-enabled phones to produce snapshots straight from your cell — with or without the classic Polaroid border — in less than a minute. Android users can also download a free app to do fun photo edits in seconds! Said Gaga of her inspiration for the device: “Everyday, digital photos capture, memorialize and shape our lives — but they are not given the chance to inspire us because they die on cell phones or digital cameras.” –Alex Apatoff

Lady Gaga is taking “Paparazzi” to the next level, unveiling her long-awaited Grey Label line of photo products for Polaroid at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas Jan. 6. After being named the brand’s creative director at last year’s showcase, the pop icon spent much of 2010 developing some high-tech digital functions for Polaroid’s instant photography. Dressed in a plunging, corseted black suit and fingertip-length veil, Gaga helped model her Grey Label products, including LCD-screen sunglasses that instantly display images taken with their built-in camera! “I consider myself to be a visionary, not just a songwriter and singer. I am an artist,” the star, who is no stranger to statement-making sunglasses, said of the new line in a release. Her favorite item? “I’m most excited about the printer,” she gushed of the GL10 instant mobile printer, which syncs wirelessly with mobile phones to allow users to print off their cell snapshots. “Your images will no longer die a death on your cell phone or digital camera.” The printer will hit stores in May 2011 and retail for $150, while the other Grey Label products will be released later in the year. –Alex Apatoff

When it comes to personal style, Eva Longoria Parker leaves high-fashion experimentation to her more adventurous friends. “I’m classic–which means boring,” joked Longoria Parker to PEOPLE last night at the Soho House in West Hollywood, where she was celebrating the launch of the LG Fashion Touch, for which she and pal Victoria Beckham designed mobile phones. “[Victoria's] the crazy, bold, edgy one and takes fashion risks I don’t usually take. I like a classic dress, a classic line, classic colors. I mean, I’m pretty simple,” said the Reem Acra-clad Desperate Housewives star, who had a blast working on the LG commercial with her old friend Posh. “She is incredibly funny, so that makes it easy. All her kids and the dogs were there, and we always have a lot of fun.” Added Beckham, “We’ve known each other for a long time. We laughed–we really, really laughed.” Dressed in a leg-baring strapless mini from her own fashion label, Posh was squired for the evening by her eldest son Brooklyn, who looked dapper himself in a pink buttondown, cream cable-knit sweater and dark jeans. “He is always very, very stylish,” said Victoria, who noted that the whole family has a flair for fashion. “They all have natural style and love fashion. I mean, David is so handsome, and he has such amazing sense of style, I don’t think he could learn much from me.” To check out the new phones, available online now, go to or visit a Sprint retailer.–Marissa Patlingrao Cooley; reporting by Michelle Ward
