Fashion News: Isla Fisher prefers a cleanshaven Sacha Baron Cohen

Isla Fisher prefers her husband Sacha Baron Cohen, star of "The Dictator," cleanshaven
Isla Fisher says husband Sacha Baron Cohen's beard in "The Dictator" didn't bother her at all, especially compared with the handlebar mustache he wore in "Borat." Why? The beard is fake, the mustache was real. She was "saddled with [it] for months and months," she said in an interview with the BBC. Indeed, though many of the comic actor's characters are hirsute, we agree he looks better cleanshaven, as in the photo with Fisher above.  [AceShowbiz] 

Skechers agreed to a $40-million settlement over what the Federal Trade Commission said were false claims the company made about the effectiveness of its Shape-Up workout shoes. Reebok paid $25 million in a similar case a couple of years ago. [Market Watch]  [The Cut]

Lisa Adams of LA Closet Design is featured in HGTV'S "Million Dollar Closets," airing at 8 p.m. Friday. The show, which is part of the "Million Dollar" series, "provides a dramatic look inside the world of LA's wealthiest homeowners and the woman who helps them organize their most prized possessions," according to a news release. "Following Adams as she transforms disorganized, cluttered and poorly designed closets into magnificent spaces that rival the size of an average apartment (and styled like the average mansion), the show documents the life of the glamorous Adams and her ultra chic clients," it said. It is described as "part high-end voyeurism, part how-to guide for homeowners looking to add a little luxury to their lives."  The show was produced by Goodbye Pictures' executive producer Rich Bye, and it features clients including Kris, Kendall and Kylie Jenner and Whitney Port.  My question is: What do you do with a closet that's the size of just a closet, not a mini-mansion?
