Morning round-up: Introducing the ‘brave face dress', plus Kanye West on taking care of his shoes

29 January 2009


There's a clear contender for this season's brave face outfit – a little red dress. Last week it was Kelly Brooke brushing off her Britain's Got Talent humiliation in a LRD and now the fired French Minister Rachida Dati's adopted one. We welcome this trend. [Daily Mail]

Clearly Kanye West's channelling Imelda Marcos: the hip-hop poser has been boasting about his 450 pairs of shoes. ‘I hire someone specifically to take care of my shoes. They clean them, box them and take a Polaroid so it's easier to find them.' Say goodbye to your hard-man image, Kanye... [The Sun]

Also emerging from Couture – a contender for Olivier Theysken's empty seat at Nina Ricci. Sources are saying Marc Jacobs' number two at Louis Vuitton, Peter Copping, is being lined up to replace him. [WWD]

A lesson in how to defy the current economic woes courtesy of Julien Macdonald. Dress stars such as Paris Hilton, Cheryl Cole and Joely Richardson. ‘The clients I have love clothes and love fashion and love going out, and I don't see that changing. They can't be seen in the same dress that they wore last month.' [The Telegraph]

Kate Middleton's trying to marry into the wrong family. She's apparently allergic to horses. Yeah, yeah. We'd use that excuse to get out of polo too. [The Sun]

A fun game to start your morning. The Daily Mail tries to prove you can't tell the difference between designer and cheap jeans. Only – if you're anything like us – you really can. [Daily Mail]
