The buyer of Cindy Crawford’s former Malibu estate that went into contract last month has been revealed. According to Dirt, Kim Kardashian scooped up the seaside property for $70.4 million in an off-market deal that closed last week—a steal compared to the initial $99.5 million asking price from when the home was last listed. The sellers are investor Adam Weiss and his wife, Yellowstone actress Barret Swatek, who bought the home from Crawford in 2018 for $45 million.
Harry Styles has come a long way from his humble beginnings in Worcestershire, England. In the decade since he and the rest of the One Direction lads made their debut on the international music scene, he’s gone from boy band member to one-man show, holding court at Madison Square Garden and rocking out alongside the likes of Stevie Nicks and Bruce Springsteen. Styles has also gotten into the A-list pastime of building up an impressive real estate portfolio, growing the number of places that he can call home at any given point during his world tours. As for his latest album, Harry’s House, the title was both inspired by Haruomi Hosono’s 1973 album Hosono House and the sensation of actually, well, being at his house.
Few celebrity couples exude as much star power as Jay-Z and Beyoncé. Both have built musical legacies laden with number one hits and awards, and they have reputations for being trailblazers and icons. Together they are next to unstoppable. When the pair married in 2008, they combined their ambitions and turned their attention toward (among other things) investing in real estate. In the years since, they have owned and sold homes in New York City, Miami Beach, New Orleans, the Hamptons, and Los Angeles.
Though Kim Kardashian famously lives in an uber-minimalist mansion with creamy white, modern interiors, that Axel Vervoordt-designed home is far from the only property she owns. The makeup mogul also has the Vincent Van Duysen-designed Calabasas condo she just put on the market for $3.5 million, the Palm Springs pad Tadao Ando is building for her, another vacation home in a secret location (Kengo Kuma is working on that home for her), and numerous additional Hidden Hills pads, one of which she just listed for $5.3 million, according to Dirt.

The in-demand designer has worked on two model residences, both in Manhattan—one at 200 Amsterdam and another at Richard Meier & Partners’ One United Nations Park on First Avenue. But for Mellone, staging sounds too much like gussying up an empty home with whatever basics are on hand.
The words Sasha Bikoff uses to describe her beachfront retreat in the Springs, a storied enclave of East Hampton, normally wouldn’t raise an eyebrow. “I wanted something reflective of a modern barn,” says the interior designer and New York native, adding, “something very pure, like a white church with a high-pitched roof.” But this is Sasha Bikoff we’re talking about. Since launching her firm in 2013, she has established herself as something of a decorating enfant terrible, flaunting a penchant for maximalist mischief in Upper East Side stairwells and Versace collaborations alike.
Kim Kardashian is once again attempting to off-load her Vincent Van Duysen-designed downtown Calabasas condo, as reported by Dirt.com. The SKIMS founder first put the urbane 2,260 square foot apartment on the market back in 2019 for $3.5 million, but for reasons unknown, withdrew the sale. The luxury pad, situated in an upscale mixed-use condominium complex, is now back on the market for the same asking price.
Suki Waterhouse is constantly traveling for fashion campaigns, film shoots, and concert tours, so she wanted her West London flat to truly feel like a home. The English multihyphenate added warmth to the historic apartment, which she purchased for its huge windows and natural light, with a deep green Devol kitchen and rare reclaimed floorboards. She then enlisted designer Izzy Hamilton-Fairley of IHF Interiors to furnish the place with vintage treasures and patterned textiles.
It’s official. Jeff Bezos’s ex-wife, philanthropist Mackenzie Scott, has just donated $55 million worth of Beverly Hills property to the California Community Foundation, a non-profit philanthropic organization dedicated to the “systemic solutions addressing the most pressing issues facing Los Angeles County”. Although a formal announcement of the gift was made in August, recent property records have just certified the transaction, reports Dirt.com.

One pill makes you larger, and one pill makes you small. If houses came with a soundtrack, the groove for this historic San Francisco manse would surely be psychedelic. Radically reimagined by AD100 designer Nicole Hollis, the mind-bending abode pays tribute to the city’s progressive cultural legacy as well as the audacious tastes of Hollis’s clients. “It’s Grateful Dead meets Burning Man meets Marrakech meets Victorian posh, with a generous dose of contemporary design and art,” Hollis says, tracing the elaborate web of influences that converge in this hallucinatory vision of modern hippie-luxe. “I wanted to bring rock and roll into the life of the house, not just as an applied gloss but as part of its DNA,” she adds.

When it comes to rural retreats, British tradition tends to demand a trophy proudly set on a faultless greensward, a neoclassical paragon with a complement of heroic columns. But the getaway that Peter Mikic, an interior designer with an alluringly maximalist brand of glamour, and his husband, media consultant Sebastian Scott, recently constructed rejects the look-at-me school. Located on 170 acres in Oxfordshire, some 50 miles distant from their London digs, the building is discreet, even featureless at first glance. A low-slung masonry building emerging from a wind-ruffled meadow full of flowers and backed by thick woodland, it might, just possibly, be a chicly renovated barn or stable. Or even, perhaps, a onetime industrial building, an impression furthered by the graffiti mural near the front door. Of course, it’s not just any idle tagging. Painted by a friend’s daughter, the plein air work was a gift to the couple when they married last June.
Whether depicting a powerful religious leader or a grande dame of society, portraits have pictured important subjects sheathed in lace for generations.

Patrick Janelle always dreamed of living in a downtown Manhattan loft. The lifestyle influencer, who also runs the talent agency Untitled Secret, fantasized about an airy and industrial home as he spent the past decade climbing the rungs of the New York City housing ladder. So when he grew out of his most recent abode, a compact yet curated SoHo apartment, he knew it was time to actualize his goal.

The estate of the late Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen is offering the sale of his 303-foot-long superyacht, Tatoosh, for a cool $90 million, according to Dirt. If you’re thinking those stats aren’t impressive enough for the billionaire and tech magnate, well, you’d be right.
