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.

After creating William Rast, his new clothing line, Justin Timberlake is filling a new role.

And it puts him right up there with sports hall-of-famers like Tiger Woods. Read More »

Here’s an interesting one.

Wyclef Jean has recorded a new song he says was inspired by fashion designer-athlete, Venus Williams.

The Haitian-born Grammy Award-winning musician/producer/social activist also wrote the song, “Venus (I’m Ready).”

He says he’s inspired by the spirit, character and prowess of the American tennis champion, who recently took home her third Olympic gold medal (with her sister Serena) in the women’s doubles match at the Summer Olympic Games in Beijing, China.

“Venus (I’m Ready)” is slated to premiere as Venus Williams’ theme music during the 2008 US Open tennis tournament in Flushing, Queens, New York, running from August 25 through September 7.

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.
