1. Stella McCartney Parties In Shanghai With Chinese Acrobats!
Stella McCartney got her swank on this week when she hosted a black tie dinner in Shanghai to showcase her recent creations. While a jazz orchestra played, guests enjoyed a vegetarian dinner, which was provided by Ballroom dancers prancing about to classic Chinese tunes. There were also Chinese acrobats who performed a plate spinning act and arranged themselves to spell S-T-E-L-L-A while dressed in the designer's collection for adidas. And just when we thought she couldn't top that London Fashion Week extravaganza. Join us in pretending we were there by clicking play on the video below...
2. Fashion Figures Get Smurf'd
We've seen the likes of Karl Lagerfeld and Coco Chanel reinterpreted as everything from dolls to cheeky keyrings but their latest incarnation may be the best yet. Italian artist aleXsandro Palombo has turned our favourite fashionistas into blue cartoon characters in tribute to the Smurfs, which made its telly debut back in 1958. Smurf Marc Jacobs [below] has his trademark tattoos in-tact and is armed with a Louis Vuitton suitcase as he approaches his Louis Vuitton house. Can we live in Smurf land too please?

4. Get Your Mitts On Mulberry's New Willow Colours
When we grabbed a chat with Juno Temple backstage at the Mulberry show in February, it was her fantabulous Willow bag that caught our eye. The starlet is just one of many A-list fans who've snapped up beauties from the Brit brand's Autumn Winter 2013 collection and us mere mortals can get involved too. Yes, Mulberry has just launched an array of new arrivals including the Willow Tote and Small Willow Tote in brand new, utterly gorgeous colours. So whether you're an earthy neutrals kind of gal or you're looking to add a bold jewel tone to your wardrobe, there really is something for everyone. And get this, fact fans: the collection is named in honour of Mulberry’s second home factory, The Willows, which will open in Somerset in late 2013. Too cute!
