Emma Watson says seeing Paris Hilton's opulent, stuffed-to-the-brim wardrobe — Sofia Coppola filmed parts of The Bling Ring in the heiress' actual home — made her think about "consumerism as kleptomania":
"She could never wear all of those clothes and half of them were brand new and still had the price tag on. But I suppose she just bought them to have them. We've all bought things on impulse but that's an entirely different thing ... It's almost like consumerism as a form of kleptomania."
Watson added, "I've got about eight pairs of shoes and that's it." Oh yeah, Ems? Are your shoes made of lentils, too? [Telegraph]

• New Lucky editor Eva Chen offers a detailed account of her career on the magazine's Web site. Chen was a pre-med student in college, and worked at a law firm after graduation while she was trying to figure out what to do with her life:
"On day two at the firm, I realized it wasn't the right fit for me. But—and this is something I always stress to people in their teens, 20s and 30s—making a mistake is not a bad thing. It's more instructive to learn what you don't like than just to like everything."
• Get ready for Coach to get (even more) expensive. The brand's new creative director, Stuart Vevers, has experience at luxury houses including Loewe and Bottega Veneta. And incoming C.E.O. Victor Luis says the endgame is four-figure prices: "You can have a $5,000, $2,000, $3,000 Coach bag in the future." [WWD]
• Miranda Kerr is Gwynething. The supermodel has launched a series of "lifestyle" video instructionals for Net-A-Porter. Obviously, the first one is about making the "perfect morning smoothie" and includes lots of footage of Miranda Kerr doing yoga in full makeup. The series is called "The Body Beautiful."

• The Telegraph asked Giorgio Armani about that one time in his memoir that he hints at taking LSD:
"Si, si!" Armani concurs cheerfully: "I'd better tell you the story. It was a long time ago, we were in the office, and we had finished work exhausted. A friend of a friend said 'hey, take this it will give you energy', so I thought I'd try it. I didn't know what it was. It made me laugh and laugh, like crazy... to the point that my back hurt" — he holds his hips — "like I'd just had a baby."

• A bunch of fashion publicists and assistants at titles including Vanity Fair and GQ decided to rent a share house on Fire Island and get it sponsored. Companies including Puma, AquaHydrate, Red Bull, Ciroc, ResQWater, Alacran Tequila, and Peligroso Tequila were apparently willing to give these guys free stuff just for being super awesome cool guys who work at places like Vanity Fair and GQ and might casually Tweet or Instagram about their tequila! Fashion is one giant conflict of interest, the end. [WWD]
