Fashion News Roundup: Nancy Pelosi In Vintage Mugler, Alejandro Ingelmo Doing E-Commerce and Karl's New Project

Nancy Pelosi Wears Thierry Mugler? The House Minority Leader wore a white two-piece set with a ribbed jacket and floor grazing skirt to Tuesday night's state dinner for German Chancellor Angela Merkel, accenting with a multi-strand pearl choker and jeweled clutch with matching heels. Even better, it's her own vintage; she says the outfit is "very old." Check the photos, what do you think? Does Obama have a style rival? {Huffington Post} Alejandro Ingelmo Launching E-Commerce: The two-time CFDA/Swarovski nominee will sell his standard mens and womens footwear lines directly from the new site, starting with the Fall 2011 collections, as well as designing a few exclusive pieces only available online. To celebrate the launch, the designer also created a short, noir-style, black-and-white film highlighting certain specially shod feet as they traipse through SoHo. {AlejandroIngelmo.com} Karl Lagerfeld Adds Glasswear to Laundry List of Design Titles: The Kaiser-of-All-Trades sketched some pieces for Swedish company Orrefors, including architectural-style champagne flutes, wine and water glasses, and coasters. Perhaps he'll use them to sip his favorite bubbly, Diet Coke. {WWD}
