HEADLINES: Kermie Gets a Makeover, The Fashion World Shakes Up Its Roster, and Kris Jenner is a Dirty Cheater.

Kris Jenner was on Leno the other night when she admitted to carrying on an affair during her first marriage to Robert Kardashian. Kris says, “We had wild sex everywhere, all the time.” Okay first of all TMI; second isn’t it just so convenient that she drops this juicy secret while trying to pimp a book? (The Superficial)

Tamara Mellon, co-founder and face of the brand, and Joshua Shulman, the company’s CEO, are leaving Jimmy Choo by the end of the month. Shulman assures skeptics that their decisions to leave were made independently, however this seems a little fishy to me. Change is a coming! (Fashionista)

It seems Manolo Blahnik and Franca Sozzani share the same point of view concerning the John Galliano scandal. Blahnik tells Vogue UK he thinks Galliano was treated horrifically by Dior and alleges the company destroyed a talent. Those are fighting words Manolo, fighting words! (VogueUK)

Speaking of Dior, the guessing game continues concerning who will replace Galliano as reports state negotiations with front-runner Marc Jacobs have slowed. Further Pheobe Philo, Marc’s successor-to-be at Louis Vuitton, has announced she has no plans to leave Celine. Ah, the plot thickens. (The Fash Pack)

Modi Operandi is stealing its employees from all corners of the fashion industry. Among the recruits are Taylor Tomasi Hill, former style and accessories director of Marie Claire, and Roopal Patel, a longtime executive in the fashion offices of Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman. Sneaky, sneaky. (The New York Times)

Paris’ Printemps is spending Christmas with Karl Lagerfeld, rather LOTS of Karl Lagerfelds. Karl was given the privilege of orchestrating the store’s Rêve d’Evasion (that is, travel dream) Christmas windows, which feature mini Lagerfeld marionettes photographing, filming, sketching, and posing all over Paris. Why am I not surprised? (Style.com)

Miss Piggy isn’t the only muppet to invade the fashion world; her beau Kermitt is right there with her. The famous frog got a formal wear make over courtesy of Brooks Brothers. The retailer gifted Kermie his first new tuxedo since 1979. (The Cut)

HEADLINES: Kate’s Good Looks Are Hereditary, Chloe Sevigny Favours Snooki Over Nicky, and Kanye Tries to Be Like Marc.

Kate Moss’s half sister Charlotte (Lottie) has made her modeling debut at the tender age of 13. It was inevitable really, I mean, just look at her. (Fashionising)

Chloe Sevigny would ideally like to dress the Fanning sisters, but if that doesn’t work out she would prefer to dress Snooki over Nicky Hilton. Oh, and she became an actress because she can’t add or spell. (Fashionista)

Wowza! Mimi has been working out and it has definitely paid off. The diva showed off her post-pregnancy body in a red sheath at a Jenny Craig event yesterday and she looked damn good! Sure she was wearing Spanx, but who isn’t these days? (Popsugar)

The Olsen’s latest StyleMint contest video is here and it’s as quirky and cute as ever. The girls plank, stork, owl, plowl and hug it out. Seeing these sissys so cuddly makes me smile. (Youtube)

Karl Lagerfeld posted a picture of his collection of iPhones on his facebook account. Yeah, he has 5! I bet you can’t guess what decal they are all decorated with. (Refinery 29)

Kanye West channeled Marc Jacobs the other night by wearing a leather skirt on stage for his Watch the Throne concert at Madison Square Gardens. Yo, Yezzy imitating Marc won’t make you a better designer! (Huff Post Style)

Alexa Chung is the newest face of Vera Moda; modeling for their fall/winter campaign. Blah, blah, blah. It’s typical Chung. Nothing new or ground-breaking here – but that’s just my opinion. (Telegraph)

HEADLINES: Kelly Gives Beyonce a Bathtub, Katie Has Cankles, and Kristen is Greasy (as usual).

The love fest continues in Cabo; their second trip this month. Must be freaking nice being a professional girlfriend who’s only responsibility is looking hot. George seems different with this one – he’s letting Stacey enjoy the spotlight and he’s less strict about the PDA. I still miss Elisabetta though. (PopSugar)

Ugh. When Katie Holmes’s style looks busted; 9 times out of 10 she designed the outfit herself. Surprise, surprise Katie made this piece of crap. Wow, it’s terrible. And those shoes? WHY? She straight up looks like she has cankles! (Lainey Gossip)

Predictable; greasy hair and angst-y facial expressions fill the pages of Kristen Stewart’s Vogue Italia spread. I didn’t think it was particularly thrilling. Plus, I really hate the hair and the cigarette. (The Gloss)

Probably the most EXTRA gift I’ve ever seen. A big tub is a great gift for a pregnant woman. But pink Swarovski crystals? See; it’s EXTRA! Does this mean it’s a girl??? I didn’t think that was Beyonce’s style. But then again the girl does help her mama design House of Dereon. (ABC)

Think twirling your hair while batting your eyelashes makes you cute and irresistible? Well it can actually make you bald! Yikes! (Stylelist)

Rachel Zoe runs a tight ship! Apparently she won’t let her client Jennifer Garner wear maternity clothes. But this stupid sateen number was A-OK? I question Zoe sometimes. (In Style)

According to Marc Jacob’s IMBD page, Marc will make his film debut alongside Jason Bateman and Alexander Skarsgard in a film called Disconnected. Are you excited to see him on the big screen? I am unsure. I fear oversaturation (Fashionista)

HEADLINES: Dina Lohan is Stupid, Iris Apfel is Mean, and Kanye West’s Fashion Career Isn’t Over?

Terry Richardson is one busy man with many, many doppelgangers. While shooting Beyonce recently for Harper’s Bazaar Terry took a time out to shoot some outtakes of Queen B fooling around with his signature glasses. This photo is now my desktop background. (Popsugar)

Whoa! Is Iris Apfel starting to lose it? They say dementia can manifest itself in aggression and I say that ‘they’ are right! The plagiarizing jewellery designer recently told the Telegraph that she wants to throw up when walking down 5th Avenue now because all the fat and ugly people don’t wear enough clothing. She goes on to say that stretch jeans over size 10 should be outlawed. Wow that’s gutless! Geeze, who peed in your cornflakes Iris? (The Cut)

Why am I not surprised that Dina Lohan has stooped to a new low? Because she’s a terrible person, that’s why! It seems mommy dearest is shopping around a personal memoir about Lilo’s partying and legal woes. Right, because that’s just what a good mother should do! Seriously, Mike and Dina never gave Lindsay a chance, did they?Throwing their daughter under the bus is their M.O. (Refinery 29)

So the Rolling Stone thinks that Kanye West’s fashion career isn’t dead … yet. It’s a point of view not shared by many, however, the article explores how he could have been more successful and ultimately concludes Kanye shouldn’t give up after only one attempt. No! Don’t encourage him! I don’t know if I can endure another disaster like that! (Rolling Stone)

Dior seems virtually unaffected by John Galliano’s racist tirade and departure from the brand. In fact, revenue is up 21%. Geeze people are weird, it’s like public indecency doesn’t even exist anymore. It’s just like when Kate Moss got caught doing coke and her career experienced a resurgence, although, I guess John Galliano’s career is still in question but I’m betting he will be just fine! (Fashionista)

So you know that depressing voice-over at the beginning of Rihanna’s We Found Love music video? That woman’s voice with the English accent, you know? Yeah it’s totally Agyness Deyn. (NY Fashion)

Good things come in pairs, right? Is that even an expression? Well, either way that doesn’t apply here. Because when handbags come in twos (specifically in two identical designs) it’s called plagiarism. I wonder how Marc Jacobs will respond. (The Purse Blog)

HEADLINES: Marc Jacobs is Asking Dior for Some Major Cash, MK & A Cash-in on Their Friendship with Steve Madden and Lou Eyrich Did This to Her Head.

So Marc Jacobs is said to be moving to Dior. But, not so fast!!! There seems to be some discussion about MJ’s paycheck. Rumour has it the New York designer is asking for a $10 million dollar salary! Too much or does he deserve it? (Fashionista)

Where do fashion designers draw their inspiration for their spring collections? Well Erin Fetherston told The Cut that the inspiration behind her butterfly decorated collection was none other than actress Mia Farrow and her butterfly mask. (The Cut)

Victoria Beckham has launched her new, more reasonably priced line entitled Victoria by Victoria Beckham. Does your buddy Marc Jacobs know that you jacked his name? Anyway here is your fair warning – do not refer to this line as a diffusion line cause Posh will be pissed! (Vogue UK)

Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen’s relationship with Steve Madden has definitely paid off as the shoe designer has just appointed the twins as creative directors for his new line Superga. The connections these girls must have make me rage with jealously. (Fashionologie)

Well that’s one way to cure unruly bed head! Glee costume designer Lou Eyrich debuted her hairdo tattoo yesterday at the Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards. I’m speechless. (Daily Mail)

It was inevitable! Pieces from the Missoni for Target line have already hit Ebay and the prices are not cheap! (Refinery 29)
