Fashionable Baby-Making: Stella Has A Girl, Nina Has A BoyS

  • What's sadder — the fact that Karl Lagerfeld described himself as "the visual version of Homer. I did with my camera what he did with his pen, although we understand that he probably didn't use a pen," at the unveiling of his ancient-deities-themed Pirelli calendar, or the fact that Women's Wear Daily felt the need to insert [ancient Greek writer] before Homer's name? [Successful Canadian model] Daria Werbowy, by the way, is now nude in not one but two 2011 calendars. [WWD]

  • A six-year legal battle between Tiffany & Co. and eBay is over, with advantage to the latter. The Supreme Court declined to hear Tiffany's appeal, leaving a lower court's ruling — that eBay cannot be held liable if third parties buy and sell counterfeit jewelry through its site — to stand. [WWD]
  • However! The Department of Justice and Homeland Security yesterday shut down 82 websites known to sell counterfeit goods. The feds seized the domain names, because the actual businesses were mainly based in China. We bet that'll stop 'em cold. [WWD]
  • Here is a picture of Tom Ford and Terry Richardson kissing at sunset. They are wearing cowboy hats, also. Write your own "can't quit you" joke. [Terry's Diary]
  • Ford's super-private spring runway show, which marked the designer's return to women's wear, excluded most media and all photographers except for Richardson. He snapped away at the models — Karlie Kloss, Liya Kebede, Beyoncé, and Julianne Moore among them — with abandon. Well, Richardson's shots are out now in British Harper's Bazaar, if you care about a three-month-old runway show. [Fashionologie]
  • There are rumors that Tom Brady, husband of Gisele Bündchen, is growing his hair long BECAUSE HE IS GOING BALD. [NYDN]
  • Christopher Kane's first men's wear collection is inspired by "space pictures" and the explosions in them. Well, the prices are astronomical. [Vogue UK]
  • Jonathan Saunders, who like Kane was just shortlisted for the British Fashion Council/Vogue Fashion Fund Award, will design a capsule collection for Escada. [WWD]
  • Jessica Stam made the cover of Russian Vogue. [DS]
  • Fashion's Night Out, which we and Cathy Horyn kinda hoped might go away, is of course not. Nonexistent discounts and impossible-to-get crappy sponsored drinks all around! [WWD]
  • Mondo Guerra, the HIV+ designer who was cruelly denied the winning spot on Project Runway, is selling a t-shirt at Piperlime to raise money for AIDS research. [Racked]
  • Fragrance and cosmetics giant Coty is on a bit of a buying spree. It's recently added Philosophy and Dr Scheller Cosmetics to its portfolio — and it will soon own the nail polish brand OPI. The price for OPI is just under $1 billion. [WWD]
  • Barneys new C.E.O. Mark Lee is shaking up management at the troubled department store — longtime fashion director Julie Gilhart and general merchandise manager of women's wear Judy Collinson are both out. [Fashionologie]
  • Issa designer Daniela Issa Helayel: "I design clothes for people like me who think they're fat." [NYTimes]
  • Yesterday, British Vogue was sure Julien MacDonald would be making Kate Middleton's wedding dress. Today, it thinks it must be Bruce Oldfield. [Vogue UK]
  • An editor at Best Week Ever braved the Black Friday crowds at Sawgrass Mills mall in Florida. She has this to report: "It was Insanity & Colmes. If you've ever seen episodes of The Amazing Race where they go to Bangladesh and the roads are pure and deadly chaos, this is the closest thing I could compare the packed aisles of this mall to. There were all kinds there: Tourists, locals, elderly people, babies, a TON of BABIES, happy couples, unhappy couples, a TON of UNHAPPY COUPLES. Really, ladies, if you're ever looking to pick up someone's extremely miserable boyfriend, Black Friday Shopping is "The Place"©." Also: bargains were only available "if you were willing to wait on the check-out line that was longer than Cisco Adler's ballsack." [Best Week Ever]
  • Alexander Wang now has a company president in Rodrigo Bazan, a former executive at Marc Jacobs. [Vogue UK]
