Been busy this week? Unable to keep yourself up to date with the fashion chit-chat? Fear not... That's what i'm here for!

*It's the most recognised little luxury packaging in the world- it's every woman's desire to stumble upon a little flash of Tiffany turquoise in her boyfriend's pocket. Tiffany blue is iconic- and it's all theirs. This week, they threw their weight behind Christian Louboutin in his appeal against a court ruling stating that he could not trademark his synonymous scarlet soles- and that YSL had every right to use red on their soles. The verdict, due in January, could be massively benefited by support from Tiffany, but whose side are you on?

*The recent 'Glamour of the Gods' exhibition on at the NPG brought to light the decadence and beauty of old Hollywood glamour, and seems to have kickstarted a wave of nostalgia- while also creating a certain nosiness with regard to the private lives of the stars of the screen, or, as John Kobal thought of them, the gods and goddesses. As mentioned in last weeks FFB, there is a new Marilyn Monroe biopic set to hit cinemas, and now there are plans for a movie about the endearing Grace Kelly. Scripted by Arash Amelhaving, it is supposedly set to be "similar to the Kings Speech in scope and tone" and give an insight into Princes Grace's life in her years as a film star. But who should star? Comment your thoughts below!
*The other Karl news? Well if you long to have a little piece of Lagerfeld in your wardrobe- and your relationship with Chanel is very much look-but-can't-afford-to-touch, then this news may make your week that little bit brighter. Karl is set to launch an accessible line called- wait for it- "Karl" on net-a-porter with prices starting at around £50. Would you buy into a more mainstream Lagerfeld-fix? I think I may just wait till I can get the real deal... Fifty years saving should do it?
*We all know about my thoughts on celebrity fashion ranges, and this weeks fashion news has once again been peppered with stories about celebs putting on their designing shoes. Firstly, Dita Von Teese has revealed plans to follow up her celebrated lingerie line with a fashion range with David Jones. It is set to go on sale first in Sydney, then should hit our shores late November. Available in size 8-20, she obviously is going for a retro glamour- but will it be a success? Who knows! But I doubt it'll be anywhere near as profitable as the divine Mrs Beckham's ventures which, it was revealed this week, are on track to make around £60 million from her fashion ranges alone (up 70% in the same period last year!) Kudos to VB.
*There's going to be no space left on your coffee table at this rate! Everyone from Terry Richardson to Louboutin are churning out glossy volumes to take pride of place on your coffee table, and the latest to follow suit are Christian Dior. In the new book "Dior Couture Patrick Demarchelier", esteemed photographer Demarchelier captures an array of supermodels in the Parisian house's finest couture from the archives. He states "when you're a fashion photographer you must inspire a dream... With Dior Haute Couture, the dream is already there".
