HEADLINES: The Duchess Channels Britney, Lindsay Wixson Runs Like a Hamster, and Anna Dello Russo is a Dirty Girl.
What do Britney Spears and Kate Middleton have in common? Well the correct answer should be absolutely nothing!

So you’ve heard by now that Christina Louboutin and YSL are fighting over the colour red, right? Well now it seems Tiffany & Co. is getting involved and taking sides. Loubs and Tiff are teaming up against YSL because they both have a stake in the trade marking of colours. I don’t know how I feel about this. Next thing you know the Kardashians will be filing for a trademark on leopard print. (HuffPost Style)
Holy Moly! I’m on a serious collaboration overload. Too many, too often. Oh and this one is grinding my gears more than anything! Drybar, a blow-dry bar, and Skinnygirl – you know that margarita that housewife made – are teaming up. How forced and awkward! This might be the dumbest thing I’ve read all day; might be. (People)

Speaking of fashion wannabees, Robbie Williams has also recently launched a clothing line entitled Farrell. My expectations are low as the star admits, “’I’m into clothes but not necessarily fashion and I think this is reflected in the collection.” So you are producing a line of clothing that is not fashionable? Perfect, we totally need more of those. (Vogue)
Emma Watson tells US Magazine that her biggest fashion faux-pas is wearing too much makeup. Or it’s owning too much makeup that she doesn’t wear, or wears only sometimes. Actually, I’m not sure what she’s saying and I don’t think she does either. (Us Magazine)

This is rare but I actually disagree with Daphne Guinness. GASP! The style icon tells Rebecca Mead from The New Yorker “I’ll eat when I’m dead!” Well I guess I don’t disagree totally; if it turns out I can eat in my afterlife I’m all for it! But until then I’ll continue to stuff my face while living. (The Daily Mail)
