NOWNESS celebrates Brad Pitt turning 48 today with a series of illustrations of the characters that have made him a household name, from the primal and lusty Tristan Ludlow in Legends of the Fall to the nihilistic, brawny Tyler Durden in Fight Club. Born in Shawnee, Oklahoma, and raised in Springfield, Missouri, Pitt caught his Hollywood break in 1991 when he played a sexy small-time thief in chick-flick Thelma & Louise. Later hits like Babel, Benjamin Button, and most recently Tree of Life brought him critical acclaim that hinged less on his undeniable genetic fortune and more on his diverse acting skills—though he is repeatedly crowned one of the most beautiful men alive, and his correspondingly lengthy list of past flames includes Jennifer Anniston, Gwyneth Paltrow and Thandie Newton. Now a father of six with longtime partner Angelina Jolie, Pitt is also an architecture fiend and a serious philanthropist; The Make It Right Foundation, which he launched after Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans, helps organize and finance the construction of affordable and sustainable residences in the city he now calls home. We capture some of the swaggering alpha male’s unforgettable moments of self-reflection. (Text and images taken directly from www.nowness.com)

The way to go during hard times is to spend a fortune on accessories to dress up your bargains to make them look a million $$$$s. Just such a bargain is this great satin-look slinky dress on the Goddiva website for an amazing £15! But hurry as their Sale only lasts until the 14th. Will dress it up with my fabulous Bionda Castana suede courts, Juicy Couture gold clutch and an amazing feather necklace, both from www.Stylebop.com - and look like a rich b**** at my next Christmas party.
