Armaan Swiss Diamond Watches has signed Olympic gold medal basketball team member Dwight Howard as its official NBA Brand Ambassador.

Apparently, it’s in honor of Dwight’s efforts to help bring the US team back to glory with their Olympic win.

Armaan Swiss Diamond Watches designed a full-pave, $100,000 diamond watch for him. The NBA star will be making a series of in-store appearances at select Armaan retailers in the US in 2008 and 2009.

Just in case you still don’t know who he is…

Dwight Howard plays forward center on the NBA Orlando Magic team and is a member of the NBA All-Star Team. Howard, who is one of the top rebounders in the sport, was the No. 1 pick out of high school for the 2004 NBA draft. He was selected as one of the 12 players for Team USA for the Beijing 2008 Games along with basketball superstars Kobe Bryant, LeBron James and Dwayne Wade.

The U.S. Olympic Team sported Polo Ralph Lauren when they paraded at the Official Opening Ceremony of the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

The Polo Ralph Lauren 2008 U.S. Olympic Team Parade Outfits were officially unveiled to spectators around the world during the dynamic presentation.

Reflecting the brand’s trademark sporty sophistication and refined sensibility, the uniforms had a 1920’s and 1930’s classic theme.

The ensemble featured a polished and tailored silhouette including a crisp white cotton shirt and ivory cuffed pants, complemented by a navy blue blazer in tropical wool.

Of course, the blazer was emblazoned with the iconic Polo Pony and the 2008 U.S. ‘Look of the Team’ logo.

He’s also providing wardrobe for the Closing Ceremony and a new casual sportswear line called “The Village Wear.”

No word yet on if regular folks like us can buy them.

The “Keeping Up with The Kardashians” star made the announcement on her blog earlier today.

It has always been a dream of mine to start my own perfume business, since I love to mix fragrances together and come up with new and different scents! I hope you understand my total excitement as I letyou, the readers of my blog, become the first to know that I am creating my own fragrance!!!  

I have decided to work with New Wave Fragrances, who also distribute Ed Hardy and True Religions fragrances. 

It all started when my mom introduced me to famous perfumerCaroline Sabas from Gras, France. She and I have been working together to create a scent that is uniquely me that I can share with everyone!

I have also hired local designer Scott Oshry to help me create the perfect bottle for my fragrance.

It is in the development stages, but we hope to have it in stores by next May – Mother’s Day! It will be available in the U.S., Germany, England, Australia and Japan.

I hope you LOVE what I come up with!

 Xoxo,
