Spoiled Brandt Can I buy Dr Fredric Brandt's skincare range in Hong Kong? Please help. Looking For Fred, Sai Ying Pun The Dictator rules: Get it together people: no skin cream is going to stop the ageing process, and there is bound to be some locally available combination of products suitable for your complexion. Pop quiz: are you drinking enough water? Do you always remove make-up grime before bed? Are you limiting sun exposure, caffeine intake and smoking? Have you been to a dermatologist about those breakouts? If you answered 'no' to any of the above, give yourself a slap. Anyway, the answer to your question is: no, you can't. However, you can order from the full catalogue of products at www.drbrandtskincare.com . Read up on this guy while you're there. He may be a clinical professor at the University of Miami, but it's not all good news: 'In practice for more than 20 years, Dr Brandt is the largest user of injectable collagen and botox in the world,' says the website. If he is injecting all sorts of things into people's faces, what does it say about the efficacy of his products? And don't be fooled by the 'Customized Product Rx' spiel: the company won't make a special formula for you, it will merely suggest a combination of existing products based on skin type. Just say yes A lot of Hollywood stars seem to be wearing clothes by Roberto Cavalli. Who is he and where can I buy his gear? Cavalli Attitude, Happy Valley The Dictator: There are quite a few celebrities wearing Roberto Cavalli these days, aren't there? Too bad they're often nominated for the worst-dressed lists. To develop a feeling for the brand, see www.robertocavalli.com , where you will be hit by a barrage of sexy music and images of seductive women. Each time you click on an item, a woman's voice will say, 'Yes' or 'Oui'. This Florentine (left) likes his leathers in trashy rock 'n' roll styles mixed with a patchwork of bold animal and floral prints, and usually cut short or tight. Lane Crawford in Times Square (tel: 2118 3638) is a good place to start looking: it carries the Just Cavalli sportswear line of jeans and tops ($1,000 to $2,500). His Freedom swimwear line ($1,000 to $1,500) is now in stores, including Attitudes (5/F, Winsome House, 73 Wyndham Street, Central, tel: 2525 9296), where you will also find a selection of tops, dresses and skirts ($600 to $2,000). You'll look fabulous: just look what he does for Britney ... Cover your assets Where can I find lacy boyshort undies similar to Victoria's Secret Lace Tanga line? Lusting For Lace, Pokfulam The Dictator: Find a lingerie shop, go to the knickers section and find the boyshorts. It's that easy. For luxe, lacy boyshorts, slip into La Perla (Chater House, 8 Connaught Road, Central, tel: 2805 0002; www.laperla.com ). They come in black, white and salmon-coloured lace ($1,190). There is even a thong version in white from the Malizia line ($498). Marguerite Lee (Ocean Centre, Harbour City, Tsim Sha Tsui, tel: 2730 5969; www.margueritelee.com ) carries boyshorts by Cotton Club in white, black, turquoise and peach ($800 to $950), and by Risk in black or white ($900). Marks & Spencer (Times Square, 1 Matheson Street, Causeway Bay, tel: 2923 7970) sells soft lace-front boyshorts in blue, beige, black and white ($115). I wouldn't scoff if you bought a few pairs in Wan Chai Market from the underwear shop at the junction of Tai Yuen and Cross streets (tel: 9289 1679), where they sell for only $19 a pair. Just don't skimp on the fabric softener. And it's no secret that Victoria's Secret ( www.victoriassecret.com ) ships goods internationally. But be warned: boyshorts have been known to make big thighs look bigger and many have a seam up the middle, which a lot of women find uncomfortable.
