It's been ALL about the Met Ball this week after the fashion world took New York by storm on Monday night. There were, like, a gazillion punky dresses, an array of fierce jewels and even Sienna Miller smooching Cara Delevingne. But what else has been going on in Planet Fash? Read on for the style snippets you might've missed...
Teen Delevingne! Buy The Latest Cara T-shirt By Black Score
You'll remember the commotion House Of Grazia caused when we asked Simeon Farrar to design a set of super-cool Black Score T-shirts. The designer created three fab versions for three fab Brit models - one for Cara Delevingne, one for Jourdan Dunn and one for Georgia May Jagger. We, obviously, got them all. And now there's a new one to add to the set! The newest model tee from Mr Farrar stars Cara yet again, but this time it's all about that 'Delevingne Spirit' so it makes sense that there's a Poppy one too. The T-shirt is available to buy online now from BlackScore.co.uk at £30 - but for two weeks only. Get it before it goes!
We Talk BLK DNM With Mary Charteris
On Wednesday, we joined Johan Lindeberg, creative director of BLK DNM, and Kim Sion for an exclusive dinner at Beagle restaurant. Fashionable types from Tallulah Harlech to Mary Charteris and Valentine Fillol-Cordier enjoyed Absolut Elyx’s luxury vodka cocktails created especially for the night before being treated to a yummy feast. 'Johan's amazing presence and all the hip hop and happening people makes me feel very lucky to be here,' Mary told us. 'I have great respect for BLK DNM and love what Johan has done with it. I'm so excited for the future of the brand'. As are we!
Gwen Stefani And Mick Jagger Go Matchy-Matchy In J Brand
We're used to seeing bands performing in matching outfits but Sir Mick Jagger and Gwen Stefani took co-ordinated outfits to a whole other, rocker level this weekend. The pair appeared on stage together while performing at The Rolling Stones '50 & Counting' tour launch in Los Angeles and they brilliantly opted for matching trousers. Because while Sir Mick wore custom Lightweight Skinny jeans by J Brand, Gwen Stefani opted for Leather Legging in Black, also by J Brand. Loving your work, guys!
Gucci Loses its 4 Year Legal Battle Against Guess
The second chapter of the trademark dispute between Gucci and Guess is over. The ruling was announced in the Court of Milan, which rejected all claims against Guess and even ordered the cancellation of certain of Gucci’s diamond pattern, G logo, and Flora pattern trademarks. The Court also rejected Gucci's rights in a 'Square G' logo. It was back in 2009 that Gucci first filed suit against Guess for trademark infringement, counterfeiting and unfair competition. Now, the Court of Milan has ruled that the diamond pattern and floral motifs are common in the world of fashion and that the Guess Quattro G logo pattern has 'nothing to do' with Gucci's interlocking double G pattern.

Ali Lohan Launches Her Modelling Career
Lindsay Lohan might be checking into rehab, but her little sister is eager to kick start her modelling career. This week, Ali spoke to WWD about signing on with Wilhelmina Models and making 'the most out of the word "fame"' - but also 'to help and do charity work.' Naturally. As for Lilo, the 19-year-old revealed she turned to the actress for advice. 'She just says the main thing is to do your best and to do what you love. We’re very close and speak very often. Well, the last time we spoke, I guess, was two weeks ago, so kind of often. But yeah, she’s awesome.'
