Michael Kors Used to Wear Cashmere Leg Warmers: The designer and Project Runway judge may favor a wardrobe full of tailored suit jackets nowadays, but he wasn't always so classy. During his days at F.I.T., he allegedly wore "cashmere leg warmers [...] with a Fiorucci jean." Well, at least his ankles were toasty... and certainly not itchy. {NY Mag}

Carine Roitfeld Gives Models Ped-Heads for VMAN: For a calendar girl-esque spread in the latest VMAN, Carine styled beyond-beauties Doutzen Kroes, Adriana Lima, Joan Smalls, Miranda Kerr et al into lingerie-clad pinups... with peds over their faces. You know, those sheer footies you get at shoe stores to avoid contact with any potential toe sweat from whomever tried on that pair before you. It's certainly an interesting take on budget-friendly accessorizing... {Fashion Gone Rogue}

And the shoes are "so beautiful. They're amazing." Ok, B, we get it! {Styleite}
