Extra! Extra! Read all about it!

- Designer-fit denims at a fraction of the price? Sure! Because it's from Old Navy!

- Who knew that luxury houses who once thrived on the patronage of royalty, now rely on the "masses" for their survival? The Telegraph has the extract from Dana Thomas's new book Deluxe: How Luxury Lost Its Luster...

- Talk about dream jobs! My kind of dream job! This fashion muse is not only well paid, she even gets a permanent suite at the Paris Ritz with her own books, scented candles and sheets, stored for her in her suite. Same suite where she keeps most of her couture clothes! Read about Amanda Harlech, Karl Lagerfeld's muse, or in her own words, the "sounding board, or a wall against which Lagerfeld bounces his ideas"; her boudoir filled with rails of fabulous Galliano, Chanel and vintage dresses, drawers full of Manolo shoes, and antique kimonos, and her fabulous job description in this story from The Observer...
