HEADLINES: Kim Acts, Naomi Lies, and Halston is Gonna Give it Another Go.

Kim Kardashian made a sitcom appearance on Last Man Standing and she wasn’t half bad. I’m actually kind of impressed. This feels weird. (Too Fab)

Another Teen Mom couple bites the dust; Maci and Lurch have split. WUT? I’m starting to get the feeling that getting knocked up in high school won’t ensure a happily ever after? (US Weekly)

I just can’t get down with this ‘skirt over the over sized shirt’ look from Alexander Wang. Can you? (FabSugar)

Halston has nine lives. Let’s hope this one sticks. (Fashion Indie)

Vogue didn’t charge Madonna for the use of their logo in her halftime show. Figures. But charging $1,600 for a yearly subscription to their archive is totally kosher, right? (Styleite)

Iris Apfel is sharing her No. 1 style rule; “If your hair is done properly and you’re wearing good shoes, you can get away with anything.” This has got to be sound advice, I mean the woman is walking fossil; she’s seen A LOT of life. (Footwear News)

Naomi Campbell swears she would never refer to herself as a “Supermodel”. She insists she works hard for her figure, a tune quite different from her infamous quote in the 1999 Playboy, “I never diet. I smoke. I drink now and then. I never work out. I work very hard and I am worth every cent.” (People)

HEADLINES: H&M Hates Real Women, Alec Baldwin Loves Words With Friends an Unhealthy Amount, and Nicole Richie May Be Heading to Halston.

Alec Baldwin was asked to leave an Amercian Airlines flight for playing “Words With Friends”. Alec’s rep explains, “Alec was asked to leave the flight for playing WWF while parked at the gate. He loves WWF so much that he was willing to leave a plane for it.” Now that’s SERIOUS love. (People)

H&M has admitted to sticking real model’s heads on computer-generated bodies. Seriously?!?! (Amy Pohler voice) And women are supposed to love their bodies and not be affected by unrealistic standards in the media? Thanks for making that impossible H&M. (Huff Post Style)

The Valentino Virtual Museum is finally here! Anddd it’s pretty much amazing! Click for the download. NOW! (www.valentino-garavani-archives.org/)

Amy Winehouses fashion legacy lives on with her last collection for Fred Perry. The collection is an ode to Amy’s love of the fifties. Peep the line here. We miss ya gurl! (Fashionista)

Rumour has it Nicole Richie is in talks to be the new face of Halston. The brand was recently abandoned by SPJ, Tamara Mellon, and Harvey Weinstein. Do you think Nic is into sloppy seconds? (ShowbizSpy)

Andre Leon Talley gives us some tips for saving money – Don’t spend on things you can get for free. Good advice; but we don’t work at Vogue where I assume the swag is out of control! (The Cut)

Dita Von Teese says being beautiful takes practice. Well then she must have been practising since birth cause girl is gorgeous! (People Style Watch)

Kellen Lutz Wants to be ‘Nsync, Halston has Been Left to Die and Apparently Diesel’s New Muse is Grover.

Hey Diesel Swimwear, you scare me! I mean I can’t even look at this directly without my eyeballs hurting. However Kristin does have phenomenal ass in this supposed bathing suit, so there’s that. (Popsugar)

It wasn’t a good look then, and it isn’t a good look now. FIGURE IT OUT. (People)

Gaga’s style is unbelievable; we all know that. But at some point functionality has to be considered. I mean Project Runway is always preaching ‘wearability’ and these shoes are everything BUT wearable. (Stylelist)

SJP and Harvey Weinstein have abandoned Haltson leaving its legacy in the balance and its future looking grim. Spending well under 2 years trying to revive a brand and you tap out? Just doesn’t seem right. (The Daily Beast)

Movies want us to believe only ridiculously beautiful people can work at a fashion magazine. (New York Observer)

Pretending to be someone else on your wedding day is the most bizarre thing I’ve ever heard. It’s not a play! (Shine)

Why is everyone so afraid to age? Getting plastic surgery always makes you look worse, always. You should know that Kris Jenner just look at your husband Brucey. (Amy Grindhouse)

The poof is out and coloured extensions are in. Jersey Rule! (Hollywood Life)

Plum Magazine Ain’t Digging Lilo’s Drama, Rosie Goes Nude for “Burberry Body” and The Pixie is the New Ombre. These are Today’s Style Headlines.

Philip Treacy is still talking about the horrendous hat he made for Princess Beatrice. Dude let it go, haven’t you received enough publicity over this thing? I mean let’s be real the hat was ugly and she chose to wear it to a televised, very public event. She got chirped and so did you; welcome to the world of fashion. (People)

So it’s pretty much official now, Lindsay Lohan’s reputation and work ethic have killed her intrigue. And the alcohol and drugs have killed the ‘Bardot Look’. Lilo used to know how to work the camera but now good lighting and make-up cannot compensate for her lack of effort. If a publication like Plum Magazine couldn’t even work with her who else will? (Celebitchy)

Dakota Fanning has joined the pixie club! The original Fanning was rocking a ‘Mia Farrow do’ on the set of her new movie “Now is Good” and was looking fly. Is the pixie the new ombre? (Popsugar)

Wow! Rosie Huntington-Whitley knows the power of her beauty and seems willing to leverage her body for big time exposure. The model is the face of Burberry’s new fragrance “Burberry Body.” Yep, it doesn’t get more blatant than that! (Stylelist)

In other SJP news, it seems that Halston and the star have parted ways. This is kind of embarrassing for her after claiming she could re-build the brand in January 2010. Guess not! Sigh … and another company bites the dust. (Fashionologie)
