  • IMG wants fashion-week celebs to pose in front of the official fashion week logos. Why, asks one indignant insider, “when they’re here to support the designer?” [NYPost]
  • Collectors of Judith Lieber‘s handbags have competition — the 89-year-old designer herself, attempting to snap them up for a museum. [HTML]
  • The endless battle between Tiffany and eBay may be over: a Manhattan judge has dismissed the remaining charge of false advertising. [WWD]
  • Michelle Obama‘s style crosses party lines! Says Lauren Bush, “I think [her sense of style] is great, I think it’s wonderful that she’s supporting young designers; I think that’s very cool,” [Hollywood Life]
  • Carine Roitfeld totally didn’t get the whole money-raising, democratic part of Fashion’s Night Out. “Unlike the wildly successful New York event, which was open to the public, the Paris version of the shopping block party, held on the famed Avenue Montaigne and overseen by Roitfeld, turned out to be an invitation-only affair. When one stylish couple decided to spend some big euros at the event, they were turned away from every boutique and told they needed to be on the list or a VIP to enter. ‘So much for our Fashion Night Out,’ said one of the pair.” [NYPost]
  • Snooki‘s hair has grown up: “I want to look more mature. The pouf – I’ve been wearing it since I was 16, so why not switch it up?” says the woman who we thought had a better nose for branding! [People via The Cut]
  • Oh, dear! “For whatever reason, Rebecca Minkoff‘s models we’re dropping like flies half way through the hour-long presentation. Every few minutes, a model would step down from the platform and go backstage and sometimes be replaced by another model. They were all sweating and looked absolutely exhausted and miserable. A woman spent the entire presentation handing thirsty-looking girls cups of Fiji water.” [Fashionista]
  • We’re kinda psyched for the dance-centric Club Monaco ad featuring principal New York City Ballet dancer Benjamin Millepied. Like those old-school Gap khaki ads, only grown up. [Fabsugar]
  • Martha Stewart threw a fashion week party for her newly-installed Living EIC, Vanessa Holden. Martha was in Lanvin, and it was all business. [WWD]
  • This is a tip that’s useful: Makeup for under florescent lighting. If they expand it to airplane bathrooms, we’ll be in business. [Bellasugar]
  • Next to Karl Lagerfeld, Diane Kruger feels totally demode. Of walking with the Kaiser, Helen of Troy recalls, “We crossed traffic and no one gave a [bleep] who I was. He had people queueing around the corner to have his autograph or take a picture of him…People asked if I could take their picture with him.” [NY Post]
  • Alexa Chung may — or may not — reprise her super-hot Madewell line. “It depends on a lot of factors, mainly how busy I am, because I like to be really involved in the design process. So if I’m not around then it can’t happen, and obviously if they don’t want it then it’s not going to happen either,” she says unhelpfully. [ONTD]
  • Tongues are wagging that Zac Posen and Vera Wang may collaborate… Although in fact it just seems like she was spotted chatting to his mom. [NYPost]
  • Robert Verdi‘s closet is modest, by Mariah Carey standards. “I’d guess there are about 200 shirts, 120 pairs of trousers, 40 or so tuxedos, at least 2,000 jackets and coats-maybe just under. It’s also divided and sub-divided: summer on one side, fall on the other. Short-sleeved T-shirts, long-sleeved T-shirts, long-sleeved T-shirts with patterns. There’s a science!” [DailyFrontRow]
  • Reality bites: “Luxury-goods retailers are coming to grips with the reality that “aspirational” shoppers, who blew open the high-end market by stretching their budgets during the boom, aren’t coming back any time soon.” [WSJ]
