THE BRONX—Jennifer Lopez made a few commercials for the Gucci-branded Fiat 500, and in one of them, she's driving around her old turf in the Bronx. Except according to a source, she isn't. Allegedly, J.Lo used a body double, and shot her scenes in LA. We're not that surprised: Most of her scenes are face close-ups, anyway. [The Smoking Gun via Jezebel]

FLORENCE—Ferragamo has just announced that they'll be launching a Marilyn Monroe exhibit at the Museo Salvatore Ferragamo. Included will be film costumes she wore, as well as shoes designed for her by the brand's founder. The exhibit will open in June and run through January. [Racked Inbox]

THE INTERNET—Online retailer wonderMode has officially launched, and as a part of their designer roster, they have a section for Parsons graduates. They're also already having a sale of up to 50% off. [Racked Inbox]
