SHOP > GOTTA HAVE IT.
Victoria's Secret supermodels Heidi Klum and Marisa Miller will launch the new Body by Victoria Full Coverage Uplift Bra at the company's Grove store in West Hollywood at 7 p.m. Wednesday. Klum, the Teutonic stunner who rose to fame on the cover of the 1998 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, also is the host of the hit Bravo reality show "Project Runway." The new bra she'll be touting as one of her duties as a Victoria's Secret "angel" is described as the "world's first combination of a full coverage silhouette and uplift construction." Pricing will range from $38 to $45, but lucky fans won't have to pay a cent to meet the sexy supermodels -- and even take home a commemorative photo. The Victoria's Secret store is located inside the Grove mall at 189 The Grove Drive near Fairfax Avenue.
Art and photography enthusiasts have the opportunity to buy exclusive Giclee prints at Pottery Barn. The images are taken by some of the world's best shutterbugs. Giclee is French for "sprayed ink" and is a process for making fine-art prints from digital sources that allows for extra-fine image resolution and detail. Each framed image is authorized, numbered and signed by or stamped on behalf of the artist. From the detailed flower and shell portraits by Imogen Cunningham (1883-1976) to David Stoecklein's depiction of the American cowboy, the photographs offer a variety of scenes. The suggested retail price ranges from $300 to $475. Accompanying art books are available for select photographers. Available exclusively at the Pottery Barn in Beverly Hills, through the Pottery Barn catalog and online at www.potterybarn.com.

DIAL GOES NATURAL
Natural cleaning products are all the rage right now and Dial Corp. hopes to enter the fray with Purex Natural Elements laundry detergent. Unlike conventional detergents and soaps, Purex is produced from all-natural, plant-based ingredients rather than petroleum-based chemicals, the company says. And while many natural products are seen as more expensive and less effective, Dial claims its naturally derived detergent provides superior cleaning performance. Because it's concentrated, it uses less liquid and packaging. The detergent comes in three scents: Linen & Lilies, Cherry Blossoms & Vanilla, and Apple & Melon. The suggested retail price is $3.49 for a 50-ounce bottle. Purex Natural Elements will be available starting this week at chains including Ralphs, Food 4 Less, Wal-Mart and Target.
