  • Sean Avery and model girlfriend Hillary Rhoda have split up after two years together. Boys and girls, please form orderly queues.

  • Look number 23 of Rebecca Minkoff‘s collection for Spring/Summer 2012 was worn by Professional Man Repeller, Leandra Medine, who simultaneously worked it and snapped away on her Blackberry.

  • French retail and luxury group PPR confirmed it was in talks to acquire family-owned Italian tailor Brioni. The $480 million dollar deal would allow PPR to make progress on its pledge to strengthen its position in the luxury market. No more retail!

  • Miss Piggy, who is a puppet, has nabbed herself a custom-made designer wardrobe for the upcoming movie, “The Muppets“.
