If, like us, you spent a good half an hour at home this morning debating whether or not you could justify having a ‘snow day' you'll no doubt be feeling the heat this morning. So here's the news-in-brief you need to know.
Rachel Zoe and Nicole Richie are friends. Yes, that's today's top story (we're in 8 inches of snow, people - what else do you think is happening?). The pair hugged at a party to celebrate their hair colourist in LA and gushed about each other's vintage gowns. If we were cynical folk we might point out at this point the cameras were rolling for Rachel's reality TV show. But instead we'll say ahh! [WWD]
Angelina's Max Azira dress at the Screen Actors Guild didn't make the best-dressed list. Or the worst. Now her stylist's revealed she wore it backward to create a ‘blouson' effect and show off her body art. And now, the fashion chatter begins. Clever. [The Telegraph]
Rejoice - the boys are coming to London Fashion Week! The British Fashion Council has added 13 new menswear designers to the A/W '09 schedule this February. We'll be watching... [Fashionista]
Now it's not just huge bags and stiletto heels that are bad for our health. This season's statement earrings can leave unsightly scars on our earlobes apparently and even cause splitting say plastic surgeons. Come on docs, we need a little bit of fashion happiness in these gloomy times... [Daily Mail]
And finally we're not sure we can quite see this one working. Apparently Dame Vivienne's son (and erotic photographer) Ben Westwood has approached Lady Isabella Hervey to be his new muse. Does that mean she'll trade her Loewe for one of his lunchboxes? [Independent]
