Fashion News Roundup: Elizabeth Taylor Auction Continues to Set Record Sales, the BFC/Vogue Fashion Fund Nominees Are Announced, and Katherine Heigl Covers Elle

Elizabeth Taylor's Old Stuff Continues to Sell: ... at record prices. The late actress' costume from her iconic role in Cleopatra sold for $62,500, with one of her several wedding gowns also selling for that much. What's this about a worldwide financial crisis again? {Bloomberg} Levi's is Showing at Fashion Week: It seems like these days, if you have the funds, you too can put on a show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. Levi's is set to show their Fall 2012 collection in a presentation creative director Len Peltier says will be "more interactive than just a runway show.” Sounds like a lot of fuss for some t-shirts and jeans. {WWD(Subscription required)} Pregnant Julia Restoin-Roitfeld Continues Working as Usual: The NY Post seems to be impressed that Julia Restion-Roitfeld has not retired to her bed now that she is in her second trimester. Not only did Ms. Roitfeld manage to pull herself away from the pickle jar to celebrate the launch of her capsule collection for lingerie brand Kiki de Montparnesse, but she also posed for the brand while she was two months pregnant. Wow! Modeling while you're not even showing? Risking people thinking you're just gaining weight? How brave! {NY Post}

Retailers Are Having a Hard Time This Holiday Season: With online shopping destinations offering deep discounts, brick and mortar stores are being forced to lower their prices in order to compete. This is good news for shoppers, but bad news for stocks. Either way, we're loving the discounts at up to 50% going on at Barneys. {NY Post}

Katherine Heigl for ELLE: The actress covers the glossy's January issue, saying that she was poised to be America's sweetheart until "I opened my mouth, and it was very clear I wasn’t. There’s so much of my mother’s caustic, sarcastic, irreverent take on things. But I also love and embrace it.” You can't say she isn't self-aware! {ELLE}
