Funny news du jour: A 53-year-old woman was apprehended for bank robbery. How did they catch her? The teller recognized her neon orange nail polish. So, handy tip: if you’re planning any criminal activity, be sure to tone down your look and remove any distinguishing feature.
Not that I recommend criminal activity. The Boston Globe
Since some retail stocks are up, why not take the plunge and buy that perfectly fitted, ripped, Balmain-esque jeans? those ridiculously drool-worthy wedges?
Or how about a $30-million, diamond-encrusted gown?
“Hell, why not just construct an entire dress from diamonds, like designer Faisol Abdullah is doing. His dress includes over 750 diamonds, among them a 70-carat pear-shaped stone at the center of the bodice. The gown’s bodice and train are encrusted with diamonds. “Stocks drop, gold is even falling but a diamond is forever,” Abdullah said. “This is a dress with diamonds. Why go backwards, why can’t we go forward? We are going to the fantastic, but it’s real. You are getting value for money with these diamonds.” Oh, excuse us — this is a recession-friendly diamond-encrusted dress.” NYmag
Like so many aged (relatively speaking) models before her, Noot Seear got the role of Heidi in New Moon.

Some celeb news:
Theirry Muglier’s costumes for Beyonce! The theme: “Sasha Fierce Warrior”. Allrighty then.
WWD says: “It imagines Beyoncé as a tough, chic, superheroine type who likes her power glam with a bit of froth; hence, the bow bustle and mismatched gloves that pair lacy fishnet with articulated metal.” NYmag.
Gwyneth Paltrow: yet another celebrity to go the path of designer. Err, “designer”.
(This one’s hard to say… there are loads of shoe companies, you know… Anyway.) It’s been rumored all over that shoe companies will slowly phase out size 5 and 5 1/2 shoes. How is this even possible? What are the small-footed women supposed to do, wear Dora the Explorer kicks all over?
Let’s hope they don’t cut out big sizes next (I’m a 10…) *shiver*

Refinery29. Gorgeous, vamp, sultry. Actually, that’s almost my hair, except much, much blonder… (The rest, not so much me.)

One of a few designers to venture into the “innerwear as outerwear” region… And it so works. I want this collection, and I want it bad.
And street style, to close it off:
Love the skirt.
