Illustration for article titled Kate Moss Asks Tory Leader To Fix Her Sewage Problems
  • Britain's Conservative Party Leader David Cameron met Kate Moss! She asked for his number! And then asked him to fix the sewage problem in her country house that was damaged by all the flooding in London this summer. Awkward. [Vogue UK]
  • Simon Doonan, the creative director of Barneys New York, has done "green" windows for the holiday season. Like "Rudolph the Green-Nosed Recycling Reindeer." I take full credit for this as Simon asked me if I thought this was a good idea when I rushed him like a crazy fan on the subway about 8 months ago. I told him yes. [Fashion Week Daily]
  • Julianne Moore had another reading and signing for her new children's book, this time at the SoHo J.Crew. Um, has this woman never heard of Barnes & Noble? [Fashion Week Daily]

  • Fashion biz fight! Who will go public first, Salvatore Ferragamo or Prada? [Vogue UK]
  • Wow, England's Marks & Spencer sure is doing something right: It just signed model Lily Cole to join Erin O'Connor, Twiggy, Myleene Klass and Elizabeth Jagger as the faces of its Limited Collection, which is supposed to make it seem like a much fancier store than we all know it is. Oooh, think there will be a Top Model tie-in? Would that be too obvious?? [Vogue UK]
  • What's next for the girl who already has the Chanel bicycle? A Lagerfeld-designed Steinway piano! [Sassybella]
  • A is the new T alert! Jeans sized by "cup size" like bras, taking into account the size of your booty and not just the length of your legs. [Sassybella]

  • Guess founder Georges Marciano just bought an 84-karat diamond for $16.2 million. He could have bought each of your Jezebels an apartment in NYC and a house in the country with that kind of dough. And still had money to spare. Sigh. [CNN]

@BiscuitDoughJones: I feel exactly the same way. And all the "Made in China" labels are so depressing.

@hfree: This is the other thing; we've been brainwashed into thinking that "anyone can make this stuff", but nothing beats good ol' American manufacturing methods; in order to ensure continued quality, pick a group of people to employ, train them well, KNOW THEIR NAMES, and deal with day to day problems on site. I suppose I'm preaching to the choir here, but retailers nowadays do. not. care. where their stuff is made or who makes it, they just want boxes and boxes and mountains and mountains of cheap product to sell and profits they can report to their shareholders at Christmas meetings. It sucks.

I was never a huge fan of U2, though I liked their music, but I can't even look at pictures of Bono smug-ing for the cameras nowadays, I want to slap him. We're supposed to bow at their feet for their political beliefs. I don't even know what his political beliefs ARE; everything he says is (frankly) soooo vague; one-size-fits-all sentiments.
