Photobucket "Liv Tyler Returns to Music Video: Need something to wake you up this Monday morning? Tyler covered the INXS song “Need You Tonight” to promote Givenchy’s newest scent, Very Irrésistible Givenchy Electric Rose, and the accompanying video is pretty sexy. The track was produced by TV on the Radio’s David Andrew Sitek, and Tyler actually sounds kind of amazing." - - via

Photobucket "Animal Rights Activist Attempts to Hire A Hit Man to Kill Fur Wearers: Meredith Marie Lowell might have little regard for human life, but she sure loves her furry friends! The 28-year-old Cleveland Heights resident took to Facebook to recruit a hit man to kill anyone “preferably older than 14 years old” caught wearing fur in her neighborhood. Her post was immediately picked up by the FBI, and her plans, foiled." - - via

Photobucket "Rihanna Spent Five Hours Shopping at Topshop’s Oxford Circus Store: Rihanna: she’s just like us! She lavishes herself with birthday gifts! The singer spent five hours stocking up on clothes and accessories from the fast fashion retailer. We wonder if she picked up anything from the Mary Katrantzou collab?" - - via

Photobucket "Kate Moss’s Arm is Paralyzed: Don’t freak out! It’s only temporary. Lady Kate woke up in the Ritz Paris this past weekend to find herself unable to move her right arm and hand. Apparently the condition is caused by ulnar nerve entrapment, which, while nowhere near permanent, can take several months to totally disappear. Which means it might be a while till KM can work again– though, with all the photoshopping that goes on, it probably wouldn’t be much of a problem to edit Kate’s limp limb." - - via

Photobucket "Jude Law’s Daughter’s Conversation-Starting Dress: 12-year-old Iris Law attended Vivienne Westwood’s show, with mum Sadie Frost, wearing a little babydoll Peter Pan-collared dress covered in a conversation hearts print. Sounds adorable, right? Except that, upon closer inspection, the sugary hearts read some not-so-sweet phrases like ‘Blow Me,’ ‘Please Drown,’ and our favorite, ‘Eat Shit.’ Sadie later apologized to the disapproving public via Twitter, claiming the oversight was a #genuinemistake." - - via

Photobucket "High-End Retailers Are Doing Better Than Wal-Mart: For the ninth straight quarter, budget retail giant Wal-Mart is reporting major profit losses. But higher-end stores like Saks and Blommingdale’s have reported increasing profits, with customers spending more on such luxury goods as high-priced jewelry. It seems that Wal-Mart reduced its prices so sharply over the holidays, it actually lost profit. Would raising its prices and quality of goods (with Macy’s and Target-like collaborations, for example) help or hurt Wal-Mart?" - - via

Photobucket "Will the Economy Rise with Our Hemlines? According the the Business Insider‘s seemingly extremely thorough study, the average length of hemlines this NYFW has risen greatly since last time — which historically could (emphasis on could) mean that the economy is in for a boost as well. Which we genuinely would have absolutely no problem with." - - via

Photobucket "Adele Wears Black and Bling at The Brits, Flips Bird: Someone get this girl into some color please! The six-time Grammy winner and Vogue cover girl wore two more black dresses to last night’s Brit Awards in London, along with some crazy finger bling that are inspiring engagement rumors. When Adele won the night’s biggest honor for Album of the Year, she was beyond rudely cut-off 40 seconds into her acceptance – resulting in an appearance from another, less sparkly – but perhaps more telling – finger. We can’t say we blame her!" - - via

Photobucket "Lindsay Lohan Confirmed for Liz Taylor Biopic: Our lady Lilo is all clear to star as Liz Taylor in Lifetime’s Liz & Dick. All she has to do is stay out of legal trouble. She will also be hosting Saturday Night Live on March 3. Maybe all this busywork will keep her on the right side of the law?" - - via

Photobucket "Sonia Rykiel Bought by Fung Brands Ltd.: The French brand is selling 80% of its shares to Fung Capital, leaving the Rykiel family with a mere 20% stake in the company. Sonia’s daughter, Nathalie Rykiel, former president of the brand, will take her new position as Vice Chairman of the Board." - - via

Photobucket "New York Fashion Week was the Most Diverse It’s Been in A Minute: The overwhelming majority (79.9%) of models who walked last week were white, but Jezebel found that NYFW was especially (term used loosely) diverse this year. Asian models represented the largest minority group at 8.8% , followed by black models making up 8.0% of the overall demographics. These are still rather paltry percentages if you ask us, but as they say: baby steps." - - via

Photobucket "Rihanna and Ike Chris Brown Team up for Two Musical Collaborations: It’s true. The pop singer and her ex-boyfriend are featured on the remixes for each other’s respective tracks, “Birthday Cake” and “Turn Up The Music.” Yikes." - - via
