It's things like this that make us suspect that the lure of LaToya Jackson may translate differently across international cultural paradigms. German cosmetics company Alessandro has created a hand cream, called "Dream Cream," at the behest of Jackson.

The 100 ml jar contains ingredient including diamond powder, malachite, peptides, and shea butter, and is topped with 285 Swarovski crystals. Jackson will front the "Dream Cream" ad campaign and is also consulting with the company on the opening of its Los Angeles outpost on Rodeo Drive—"We were saying in L.A. [that] they don’t have elegant nail shops. Women pamper themselves in L.A., but there’s not an elegant place to do it in," Jackson told WWD. Anyone beg to differ?
