Victoria and David Beckham have always been good at generating interest in their personal brands AND the brands of others, like H&M and Armani, but looks like nobody wants Victoria's wedding crown from 1999!
Hey, that's vintage!
The crown was expected to bring in $29,000 to $40,000, but the highest bid was only for $23,000, and so the item failed to sell.
Bonham's chief executive Matthew Girling said:
If anyone can wear a tiara one day and then rock a baseball cap the next and somehow pull it off, it's Kate Middleton!
The Duchess of Cambridge was spotted getting some fresh air with Prince George as they went for a stroll in Kensington Gardens earlier this week!
Kate was a
little LOT more dressed down than we're used to seeing her as she wore jeans, sneakers, a scarf and a baseball cap on their lovely walk! Who knew mom clothes could look so elegant?!
But before you start getting TOO carried away with ideas about her casual clothing, we'd like to point out that she's pushing the little prince in a Sliver Cross Sleepover Elegance Stroller, which only costs about $2,300!!
Holy guacamole! No wonder she's so dressed down! LOLz!

Ellie Goulding smoldered her way down the pink carpet at the Cosmopolitan Ultimate Women of the Year Awards, held in London on Thursday night.
And it totally made our day!
The Burn singer was bangin’ in the Dolce & Gabbana strapless dress she slipped into, with its ivory corseted top and velvet skirt. Nice choice, gurlie!
Even her seksi, loose waves and smokey eyes were flawless! As were her fun, dangling star earrings!
WOW. We just can’t stop singing her praises with this one!
Hope this roll Ellie's been on continues well into the new year!

Looks like it's party time in good ol' Londontown!
Robert Pattinson was spotted getting down and dirty at a club in Notting Hill in celebration of his best friend's, Tom Sturridge's, upcoming 28th birthday!
Also in attendance was Tom's 32-year-old fiancé, Miz Sienna Miller!
The three paAaAartied the night away and were later seen carrying presents from all of Tom's friends! We TOTES bet that the one wrapped in pink was from the Twilight star.
LOLz!! We kid, we kid!
R-Patz was looking quite serious, though! We wonder if he saw Kristen Stewart's new film still and decided to mimic her!
Or seeing as he's clutching his phone, maybe he was texting KStew and she wasn't responding!
Oooooh!! Maybe after spending Thanksgiving with the actress, he just REALLY misses her!!
Well, that or he was just really upset it wasn't HIS birthday!!
Don't worry, Rob, only like five more months til it's your turn!!

Things are getting hairy around here!!
Nicole Scherzinger attended Cosmopolitan’s Ultimate Women of the Year Awards in London on Thursday, and managed to look mostly fierce.
The X Factor judge treated us to a chic dark navy Amanda Wakeley bustier and pant ensem paired with black Saint Laurent pumps, and while we’d love to focus on Scherzy’s bangin’ bod in this outfit — we just can’t get over the hair!!
From close up, the unusual ‘do looks fine, but from any sort of distance it looks unkempt and also ages the 35-year-old.
However, the singer made up for any fashion misstep EVER during her award acceptance speech; she sang a beautiful tribute to the late and great Nelson Mandela.
Watch and listen…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
To honor the great Nelson Mandela, a man whom we've just learned has sadly passed away, Kate Middleton and Prince William put on their fanciest clothes to attend the premiere of Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom in London.
The Duchess looked absolutely stunning in a recycled cream Roland Mouret long-sleeved gown with a short slit that showed off her royal calves, and she paired the exquisite number with a silver necklace from Zara.
Talk about high-low — that necklace is gonna fly off shelves.
Black Prada pumps and a Mulberry clutch matched the black velvet sash in her ponytail and put the perfect finishing touch on her look!
And, obvi, Prince William looked dashing as always. We didn't forget him!
Both royals sincerely stunned while paying homage to a man who impacted the world in so many ways we can't even begin to express our gratitude for.

Puffins are making a comeback!!
Puffins, super cute penguin looking birdies, were thought to be in real trouble, with dwindling numbers.
From 2003 to 2008, the puffin population dropped by about one third!!
So of course environmentalists were worried!
But it turns out that the population has made a real comeback all on it's own! They've turned their own fate around!
The puffin population on the UK's Farne Islands has made a serious recovery with a puffin boom, even though winters have been tough and brutal.
Why can't all species of animals just save themselves??
If only rhinos could take their own horn powder and start reproducing like rabbits, there'd be no issues.
Check out the video (above) to see these cutie puffins just puffining around their island.
