Noted fashion photographer Alexi Lubomirski made headlines this week when he announced that he's royalty (his title is His Serene Highness) and released his first book, Notes For a Young Prince. The book is filled with guidance on behavior and comportment, and 100 percent of its proceeds will be donated to charity. It's a pretty good first public move as a member of the nobility, eh?

The 25-year-old basketball star will debut his own eyewear brand, created in collaboration with Selima Optique, on July 8. The ten styles in the collection, which were inspired by Californian neighborhoods like Brentwood and Pasadena, range in price from $95 to $145. (Style.com)
