Fashion News Roundup: Kate Moss's Arm is Paralyzed, Jude Law's Daughter Wears a Controversial Dress, and Uggs on the Sartorialist?

Kate Moss's Arm is Paralyzed: Don't freak out! It's only temporary. Lady Kate woke up in the Ritz Paris this past weekend to find herself unable to move her right arm and hand. Apparently the condition is caused by ulnar nerve entrapment, which, while nowhere near permanent, can take several months to totally disappear. Which means it might be a while till KM can work again-- though, with all the photoshopping that goes on, it probably wouldn't be much of a problem to edit Kate's limp limb. {Daily Mail} Jude Law's Daughter's Conversation-Starting Dress: 12-year-old Iris Law attended Vivienne Westwood's show, with mum Sadie Frost, wearing a little babydoll Peter Pan-collared dress covered in a conversation hearts print. Sounds adorable, right? Except that, upon closer inspection, the sugary hearts read some not-so-sweet phrases like 'Blow Me,' 'Please Drown,' and our favorite, 'Eat Shit.' Sadie later apologized to the disapproving public via Twitter, claiming the oversight was a #genuinemistake. {Styleite} High-End Retailers Are Doing Better Than Wal-Mart: For the ninth straight quarter, budget retail giant Wal-Mart is reporting major profit losses. But higher-end stores like Saks and Blommingdale's have reported increasing profits, with customers spending more on such luxury goods as high-priced jewelry. It seems that Wal-Mart reduced its prices so sharply over the holidays, it actually lost profit. Would raising its prices and quality of goods (with Macy's and Target-like collaborations, for example) help or hurt Wal-Mart? {New York Times}

Is Scott Schuman Into Uggs? Our friends at Refinery noticed the Sartorialist's discerning eye had picked up some Uggs. As in Uggs. Those shoes that most fashion people get all huffy about hating. Is he joking? We can't tell. {The Sartorialist via Refinery 29}

Why Brands are Making Their Own Glossies: Why attempt to convey the values and culture of a brand through a few photographs in an ad campaign and placements in an editorial when you can produce an entire magazine for about the same cost? That's the idea motivating more and more brands to create their own mags and blogs that are miles from being considered catalogues-- Many, like those by BLK DNM and Acne, don't even mention the brands' own collections within the pages. {New York Times}

Will the Economy Rise with Our Hemlines? According the the Business Insider's seemingly extremely thorough study, the average length of hemlines this NYFW has risen greatly since last time -- which historically could (emphasis on could) mean that the economy is in for a boost as well. Which we genuinely would have absolutely no problem with. {The Cut}

Adele Wears Black and Bling at The Brits, Flips Bird: Someone get this girl into some color please! The six-time Grammy winner and Vogue cover girl wore two more black dresses to last night's Brit Awards in London, along with some crazy finger bling that are inspiring engagement rumors. When Adele won the night's biggest honor for Album of the Year, she was beyond rudely cut-off 40 seconds into her acceptance - resulting in an appearance from another, less sparkly - but perhaps more telling - finger. We can't say we blame her! {Styleite}
