Fashion News Roundup: Kate Middleton Named 'Hat Person of the Year,' Chanel Wine Exists and the Rodarte Guide to Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Kate Middleton Receives Two Unusual Honors: The Duchess of Cambridge has gotten a lot of attention for her sartorial choices, so it can't be too much of a surprise that she is being awarded for it. What is somewhat unusual is the source: The Headwear Association has named Kate their "Hat Person of the Year." (Seriously, that exists.) The Duchess also made the cover of Scouting magazine, who has dubbed her "The Royal Role Model" for her volunteer work. {Elle UK / People} Alexa Chung for Superga, Pt 2: In addition to reprising her role as campaign star, Alexa Chung has also been enlisted as stylist for the new ads. Superga gave her full control, so she took photographer Guy Aroch and stamped the ads with her own quirky humor. Here, Chung poses in bed with a sneaker to her ear as a phone. Will you buy? {Telegraph} Chanel to Sell Wine: Now you can get drunk on Chanel - literally. Chanel has owned Chateau Rauzan-Segla in the famous Bordeaux region since 1994, and for the occasion of the Chateau's 350th anniversary, will sell a one-off of the 2009 Grand Cru Classé for $129. The best part is that Karl Lagerfeld himself designed the label - bien sûr. You can pre-order yours at KLwines.com. Santé! {Glamour}

Ad Sales Up for March: It must be a relief for magazines like Vogue and Elle, who are reporting increases in ad sales from March 2011. Though often overlooked for it's uber-important September counterpart, March issues also post major page numbers with the official debut of the spring collections. Elle publisher Kevin O’Malley, who reported increases of 2%, said “The key drivers are luxury and prestige." The losers? People StyleWatch and Lucky, who reported a 21% decline in ad sales this March. {WWD}

Kim Kardashian to Guest on Drop Dead Diva: Just when you thought your Kardashian kup overfloweth, here comes news of another Kim K guest spot. I guess Drop Dead Diva producers didn't get the memo about potential Kardashian burnout, as she'll have a multi-episode arc on season 4 of the Lifetime show playing a love interest for Ben Feldman's character Fred. Creator Josh Berman said, "I'm so excited to see Kim ‘reinvented' in the world of Drop Dead Diva." If there's anyone in need of reinvention, it's definitely Kim. {E! Online}

Stacy London Gets New Show: The What Not to Wear host is working on a plus-sized fashion show for TLC. London will share hosting duties of the yet-unnamed show with Lisa and Jim Dolan of Brooklyn plus-sized boutique Lee Lee's Valise. The show will have three different customers each episode who will be given advice on how to look their best. No details yet on what makes this show different from WNTW, other than the plus-sized focus, or whether London is as adorable without partner in crime Clinton Kelly. {InStyle}

The Rodarte Sisters Rank Their Favorite Buffy Episodes: Yes, it's as awesome as you think it is. The sisters list their favorite episodes along with descriptions. "Once More With Feeling," the badass musical episode, is here along with many others. We know you're slacking off on Friday, so take five minutes to give it a read. {Rookie Mag}

Franca Sozzani Has No Shortage of Opinions: In her latest blog, she rants about shallowness. She can't understand why it seems to always be attributed to the young, or to women, when in her mind it is a widespread problem "because people of any kind can be superficial and what amazes the most is that shallow people in some cases have strong roles and hold chief positions in society." It's hard to disagree with her, but damn. {Vogue Italia}
