- Supposedly Brad Goreski left Rachel Zoe's employ because he was on the cover of the Times Style section during fashion week and Rachel Zoe must be the star of everything. Further proof the Style section ruins everything. [PopEater]

- Uniqlo pitchman Orlando Bloom sat front row at Balenciaga to watch his pregnant wife, Miranda Kerr, walk in the show. [WWD]

- Photographer Richard Reinsdorf is suing Skechers for $250 million. Reinsdorf, who was hired by the brand to shoot campaigns in 2006, says Skechers has exceeded its contracted usage rights for the pictures. [TMZ]
- Giles Deacon sounds like he's trying to undo the damage at Ungaro. He "stressed" to Women's Wear Daily that his collection is for "real women, not starlets." (Who could he mean?) And he'll be hosting a presentation, rather than a splashy runway show. Still, the one look he allowed WWD to photograph has cutaways up to here — it's like more cutaway than dress. [WWD]
- Style.com probably thinks that the only way to compete with fellow Condé fashion property Vogue.com is to try and become the sort of unassailable brand that Vogue is. Perhaps, though, a reality television show is not the way to do this? [NYDN]

- Gee, the Post really is paying a whole lot of attention to Marc Jacobs' hot, naked bod. This story about how OUTRAGEOUS and IMPROPER his Bang cologne ad is is like 4,000 words long and contains references to Jacobs "bulging...biceps." [NYPost]
- We love the idea of a serious fashion magazine dedicated to plus-size women, but Britain's Just As Beautiful seriously suffers from an unnecessarily self-justifying title and graphic design that looks like it was done on MS Paint. [Daily Mail]
The H&M thing really IS irritating. You can't buy their stuff online, they keep having rumors they are coming to TX, and 2 months ago they started running H&M commercials for the first time here, which is starting to feel like rubbing salt in the wound.
Their published responses to the Texas question don't make any sense, either. Texans spend a ton of money on clothes! H&M is so much fun! WANT WANT WANT!
If they did open a store in the Galleria in Dallas it would be amaaaaaaaaazing. I heard they are looking at Northpark but Galleria makes way more sense, and a bunch of larger stores are moving around in there right now.
I bet we have one by Christmas.
