Morning round-up: Gossip Girl gets another series, plus power shoulders are here to stay...

Gossip Girl

Hold on to your headbands, people. Gossip Girl series 3 has just been commissioned in the US! What will Little J do next? [US Weekly]

Racial diversity is improving on the catwalks. The use of black models at New York Fashion Week is up 6 per cent on last season. [Jezebel]

But don't think models aren't being hit by the credit crunch too. Lisa B is apparently more likely to be found shopping in Primark than Armani Prive. She buys staples on the high street and waits for the sales to pick up designer gear. Not just a pretty face... [Telegraph]

Talking of pretty faces... Slumdog Millionaire star Freida Pinto has landed the cover of US Vogue. Well, she does wear Louis Vuitton so well. [Just Jared]

Michelle Obama dress-watch continues. Fresh from showcasing new designer Peter Soronen last week, she's back to her old faithfuls – Jason Wu and Narciso Rodriguez. [WWD]

How are you feeling about power shoulders? Because you better get used to them. And learn how to wear them. Because they're sticking around for next season too. [Independent]
