Meet The Newest Baby Phat Designers. They're Toilet Trained And Everything!

  • Kimora Lee Simmons's five and seven-year-old daughters are the latest celebrity "designers." Because they mastered the art of coloring within the lines, like, months ago! But they're not taking all the credit: Their party planner helped. [WWD, sub req'd]
  • Fast Retailing Co., Ltd (which also owns Uniqlo) offered to buy the department store chain Barney's for $900 million in cash late yesterday. We cannot imagine what a billion dollars in cash looks like, especially when they have to exchange it all from Japanese yen. [WWD, sub req'd]
  • Following in the rugged dirt trail blazed by the Eddie Bauer Jeep and the Roxy Land Cruisers, J.Crew is selling Land Rovers now. Maybe Polo and Urban Outfitters will get in on this and save General Motors once and for all. [WWD, sub req'd]
  • Playboy continues to expand its brand through a bevvy of clothing licensing deals. And whomever wrote about this for WWD clearly has never seen an episode of The Girls Next Door, as Hef is described as being in the company of "two buxom blondes" (Hello! That means they were probably Holly and Bridget since Kendra was probably off doing body shots!) and that there were "centerfolds squeezed into jewel-toned Playboy Bunny uniforms (Hello! A centerfold is not the same as a bunny! Didn't you hear Holly explain the difference in the episode "Rabbit Tales"???). It's called 'research,' people. [WWD, sub req'd]
  • Anna Wintour? Smiling? This can't be real. [Sassybella]
  • Donatella Versace's camp is denying her costuming the Spice Girls for their upcoming tour???? Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo. [Fashion Week Daily]
  • Something. Designers. Googling. We're sorta intrigued, but as members of the Google generation, uh, a little too A.D.D. to really pay attention. [GlamChic]
