Madonna Givency tour

Forget the couture show this week, Ricardo Tisci got a head start on Saturday when Madonna unveiled her custom-made Givenchy tour outfits on stage in London. [WWD]

We love Beth Ditto's collection for Evans. So do Sir Philip and Kate Moss. But sounds like the singer herself is a bit of a perfectionist. After liaising with the Evans' designers via the internet and jetting into London a couple of times, the collection has a few small details that are not quite as she would have liked. ‘Not much, but I notice!' [Guardian]

Watch out at this season's Milan Fashion Week. The mafia bosses have apparently got their clutches into the industry. Police are now investigating how some fashion insiders have afforded new palazzi despite their collections not bringing in the cash. [Telegraph]

Christy Turlington is the latest supermodel to prove the supers are back. (We think we might have to stop saying that soon because it's beginning to feel like they've never been away...) She's fronting the new Yves Saint Laurent campaign. [Telegraph]

Rachel Weisz has strict views on Botox and Hollywood. ‘It should be banned for actors as steroids are for sportsmen. Acting is all about expression. Why would you want to iron out a frown?' [Daily Mirror]

The ferocious Bruno on the question if you were forced to chose between Dolce & Gabbana: 'Gabbana. Dolce is bald, so zere's no hair to grab hold of.' [Swide]
