• Sketches of Lindsay Lohan's full clothing line were released today, along with the expected wholesale and retail prices of the items. Holy 75-85% markup, Lilo! The Ungaro-dabbling starlet Tweeted her excitement. And yes, kneepad leggings are included. [WWD]
  • Carla Bruni intervened on behalf of two French citizens who were caught with six kilograms of cocaine in the Dominican Republic. The French First Lady asked for, and obtained, a pardon for the 19-year-old and 20-year-old smugglers, who had served just 18 months of an 8-year sentence in the island nation. Insert your own models/cocaine joke here; old habits die hard. [Telegraph]
  • Donatella Versace has people to hold up her dress for her when she needs to pee. [V]
  • Would Andr√© Leon Talley really have the audacity ‚ÄĒ or the stupidity ‚ÄĒ to defy the boss he calls "Miss Anna" for Tyra Banks' sake? Rumor has it that Talley's Vogue boss is very unhappy with his just-announced judging gig on America's Next Top Model. [JCReport Twitter]

  • Ashish, Jonathan Saunders, and Ann-Sophie Back's respective collections for Topshop hit stores on January 20th, and the first pictures of the lines have just become available. Saunders did tight-fitting dresses in pieced denim, Back's collection of slashed-up black jersey tops and dresses is inspired by horror movies, and Ashish's studded sweats prove you actually can throw studs on anything.
