Just in time for Father’s Day, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have added a pair of gorgeous 18-karat white gold cufflinks to their Protector collection for Asprey. Keeping with the serpent theme seen in their previous designs, the cufflinks—the first men’s piece in the couple’s limited-edition collection—boast a snake body encrusted with pave black diamonds and emeralds as eyes. The price tag? A whopping $10,000, with 100% of the net proceeds going towards Education Partnership for Children of Conflict, a charity that Jolie co-founded. Talk about a Father’s Day gift for the man who has it all! Call (212) 688-1811 to order.

What’s more fabulous than a party thrown by Karl Lagerfeld? A party thrown by Karl Lagerfeld in Saint Tropez! Diane Kruger, Joshua Jackson, Vanessa Paradis and Karolina Kurkova were among the stylish guests invited to the south of France to celebrate the debut of Lagerfeld’s new short film, Remember Now, and see his Chanel 2010 resort collection. Kruger, in a white Chanel skirt, fedora and ribbon-tied braid, and Jackson, in a festive pastel shirt and shades, played bocce ball and sipped vino at the outdoor party held at Place de Lices (a gorgeous tree-lined open-air market). Their adorable springtime style easily won them the title of night’s cutest couple!

We are cuckoo for Coco—Coco Chanel that is! Once stating “simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance,” she single-handedly revolutionized womenswear with simple and borrowed-from-the-boys silhouettes that were functional as well as fabulous. Coco created the famous 2.55 handbag after growing tired of carrying her purse in her arms and wishing for a more practical tote with shoulder straps. She fabricated sportswear in fluid, yet practical jerseys and introduced ladies suiting with a vengeance, employing fabrics such as Scottish tweeds and our personal favorite: bouclé. Looped and textured with a thick and luxurious feel, a Chanel bouclé jacket is not only an essential item for any girl’s wardrobe, it’s an investment piece. (The value of Chanel bouclé jackets appreciate over time.) We’ve picked this chic Chanel bouclé jacket for our must-have of the week, available exclusively through InStyle.com. Find out how to get it after the jump!
