Fashion News Roundup: Kate Middleton Wore Plum on Christmas, Louis Vuitton Is Suing The Hangover 2, and Nina Garcia Takes a Post at Moda Operandi

Kate Middleton's Plum and Wine Christmas Ensemble: The Duchess was a sugar plum (in the best possible way) personified on Christmas morning as she attended church services with the royal family. {Mirror UK} Burberry Has 10 Million Facebook Fans and Counting: Compare that to Louis Vuitton which has about 6 million fans and Prada who has 829,000. Let’s hope Burberry doesn’t start playing Farmville and cluttering up everyone’s feed. {Facebook} Louis Vuitton Is Suing The Hangover 2: LVMH is suing Warner Brothers because of a scene in which Zach Galifianakis’ character says of his bag, “Careful, that is a Louis Vuitton.” Except it’s not. The bag is a counterfeit produced by a company called Diophy, which LVMH is also currently suing. The luxury goods company claims there could be “consumer confusion.” We’re definitely confused. {WWD, subscription required}
