Marc make-up

Mega designer Marc Jacobs is launching his first make-up collection. If it's anything like his fragrances, we're sure it'll be a huge success.

Betsey in trouble

The kooky American designer Betsey Johnson recently announced she would close almost all of her stand-alone shops as the brand filed for bankruptcy.

All ears

One of our favourite bloggers, Fifi Lapin, is turning to books with The Wonderful World of Fifi Lapin: Style Secrets from a Furry Fashionista, in which she talks about her fashion secrets and interviews top designers such as Anna Sui.

Tweet tweet

Roberto Cavalli went on a hideous Twitter barrage where he dissed Anna Wintour, Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton and French fashion houses in general.

Crystal clear

Marni, Stella McCartney and Charlotte Olympia (seen here from Net-a-porter) are just some of the brands taking up the super-cool perspex heel trend.
