On Wednesday the Duchess of Cambridge's husband compared her to a banana when she wore a yellow dress. On Thursday, as the couple's tour of New Zealand and Australia continued, the former Kate Middleton wore a blue ikat-batik patterned Diane von Furstenberg wrap dress. And reportedly within minutes, the $325 DVF dress sold out. [People]

Midchella madness was in full swing Wednesday night as Treats magazine simultaneously celebrated cover subject Dylan Penn (who wasn't actually there) and the completion of Jim Goldstein's long-gestating (and not yet actually finished) nightclub on a Beverly Hills hill.
Treats, for those of who might be unfamiliar with it, bills itself as a fine arts quarterly though our copilot at Wednesday night's festivities found the NSFW content, mostly in the form of artfully staged photos of bare-breasted women, virtually indistinguishable from the likes of Playboy. While it is different from the mag...
Even princes can be less than tactful. Prince William and the former Kate Middleton, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, arrived in Sydney, Australia, on Wednesday, Day 10 of their tour to New Zealand and Australia. Kate wore a yellow dress with white modular details designed by Roksanda Ilincic to attend a reception. The duchess said her husband opined that the dress made her look like a banana. [Marie Claire]

Jimmy Choo knows how to party alright. And party the brand did on Tuesday night in L.A. when creative director Sandra Choi hosted a launch for the new, tomboyish rock 'n' roll-themed CHOO.08 collection and newly redesigned Rodeo Drive store.
The bash was held at the Beverly Hills Mid-Century home of Eugenio Lopez Alonso, the international art patron who recently sponsored the opening of the new Museo Jumex contemporary art museum in Mexico City.
Is the world ready for kid-sized Kate Spade cardigans and jaunty Jack Spade jackets for Junior?
We're not sure those particular pieces will be in the merchandise mix when the GapKids collaboration with the Kate Spade New York and Jack Spade brands hits retail in November -- since no descriptions or images accompanied Wednesday's announcement of the coming limited-edition collection.
Childrenswear will be a new category for the pair of Spades (the women's line, Kate Spade New York, started with handbags in 1993, the Jack Spade men's brand followed with satchel and carry-alls three years...
L.A. is a place of new beginnings. So it’s appropriate that British luxury brand Jimmy Choo should put its best foot forward here now.
A new store design concept on Rodeo Drive, a star-studded Hollywood bash at the home of art collector Eugenio Lopez Alonso featuring a performance by pop band Bastille, and the launch of a youthful new rock ’n’ roll-themed shoe collection are all part of a bold, new direction for the label and its creative director Sandra Choi.
Choi has been with the company since its birth, but took over as sole creative director last year. Now, she’s...

Marissa Webb was named new creative director at Banana Republic, where she replaces Simon Kneen, who left at the end of last year. [Los Angeles Times]
It was announced today that the brand’s new creative director will be Marissa Webb, a veteran of J. Crew, who has her own casual contemporary label that is sold in stores such as Barneys New York.
Webb replaces Simon Kneen, who was with Banana Republic from 2009 to December 2013, during which time the core collections became increasingly dull, and the brand lost ground to J. Crew, H&M and other specialty retailers. Perhaps to compensate, Banana Republic rolled out a series of upscale collaborations with designers...
The wedding gown Margaery (Natalie Dormer) wore for her "Purple Wedding" to Joffrey (Jack Gleeson) took five to six weeks to make, costume designer Michele Clapton told Fashionista -- with one costumer dedicated to making all the rose and thorn embellishments by hand. The idea behind the design? "A creeping briar rose that, although pretty, will draw blood if you catch yourself on its thorns," Clapton said, "and can end up smothering its host. Pretty but dangerous!" Could that be a clue about what happened at the end of the episode? [Fashionista]
