Save yourself from fashion shame with this ingenious way to ensure you'll never be caught wearing the same dress as anyone else. [The Telegraph]

The Beckhams get matchy-matchy again. This time in Dolce & Gabbana. Her a little black dress, him a low-key white sports shirt. So who wore it best? [Daily Mail]
