Last week, you learned that Tavi Gevinson got a Himalayan salt lamp and Sharon Horgan ordered a stuffed doughnut. Now, we present the latest in celebrity shopping news: Jenji Kohan bought some egg cups, Marlo Thomas decided to revisit Graham Greene, and Priyanka Chopra got bored and splurged on some glow-in-the-dark belly-button rings.
“All I buy online is books. I’m traveling a lot and I wanted to rediscover Graham Greene, so I got The End of the Affair. Wow, I hadn’t read it in 100 years. I'm in a cycle right now of wanting to re-read things and I’ve been thinking about books that really moved me long ago. I thought I would read The Great Gatsby next, just to go back. I’m an old English-lit major."
"I bought a Bartelli coffee filter that you put on top of a mug because my boyfriend needs one and I don’t have a coffeemaker in my house because I don’t drink coffee. You just put it on a cup, put coffee in there, pour water in, and then you have coffee! And then I bought my boyfriend a belt from Wilson’s Leather because it's his birthday. Oh, and I got some sunglasses that I lost on a train recently from Romwe — they were really big and kind of made me look like a bug.”
"The last thing I bought was Newman’s Own dog food on Amazon Prime. And my daughter bought a Beauty Blender. Gotta have that when you’re 15. And she said, 'Oh, they’re expensive,' and I said, 'No they’re not; get five,’ because I don’t want her to get acne. Let’s see, what’s the other thing I bought online … An Urban Decay Naked eye-shadow palette, I had to get another one. I do my own makeup. And a Caudalie cleanser. Needed it, needed it."
"Okay, so I went crazy with Marimekko for Target. There are boxes coming every day. And my family is asking me what I'm doing with it, and I don't know. I just bought everything, because I love Marimekko. And then on Amazon and eBay, I've gotten very into egg cups for some reason, I don't know why. All sorts of different cups. And old Timexes. That's on eBay. And then on Etsy, I go for earrings. I always find little crafty ones from Colorado. Great earrings at reasonable prices. I love it."
"I bought Beyoncé's new album. I was blown away by Lemonade. I thought it was brilliant. She's such a genius. Blown away by her talent and her ability to engage with the big questions of our time. Everything else we buy online is stuff for our kids. A Hello Kitty sleeping bag was the most recent thing. Our daughter Alice loves Hello Kitty, and she loves Beyoncé, so it works! Beyoncé high, Hello Kitty low.”
“What did I buy recently? They were probably some Dolce sneakers. No, they were Maison Margiela sneakers from Farfetch. I bought two — they’re fashion sneakers. One is red, one is white. And I bought some Helmut Lang sweatshirts.”
"I buy a lot of skin care online. The last thing I got is called Paula’s Choice. It’s from a woman named Paula Begoun and she’s somewhat of a guru in skin circles. Her things just slough away everything, they steamroll my face."
