Michelle Obama 

You'd think America might have more important things to deal with. Like global economic crisis. But apparently not: the biggest crisis there is whether it's appropriate for Michelle Obama to be baring her arms in public. [Daily Mail]

It's not just us that loves Freida Pinto! Hot off the rumour mill in Paris comes news that Estée Lauder is in talks to do a spokeswoman deal with the Slumdog Millionaire star. [WWD]

We told you Roberto Cavalli was defying the credit crunch with his A/W '09 collection: ‘Today, romanticism simply doesn't feel like the right choice. You need to attack in order to win. I have declared war on the crisis. I am an optimist: prints in trompe l'oeil animalier are like flashes of light, the touches of colour are like luminous windows toward a better future that I am sure will arrive soon.' [FWD]

It's the battle of the D-Listers who turned up wearing the same dress last night. Who wore it best? Oh, even we can't be bothered... [Daily Mail]

How to walk in high heels – the definitive guide. We say, just wear flats. (Maybe we're in post-fashion week traumatic stress). [Guardian]
