David Beckham Goes Shirtless in Fragrance Ad, Kate Middleton's Belly Shocks the Internet, and Abercrombie & Fitch in Trouble Again

We haven't tried David Beckham's new fragrance yet, but if it brings us even a fraction of the joy we feel seeing him shirtless in the advertisement... we'll take it. {Daily Mail} Karl Lagerfeld says he'll do "anything" for Cate Blanchett--including designing her last minute costumes for her new Woody Allen-directed film. {Grazia} Caroline Kennedy has been nominated to be the first female U.S. ambassador to Japan, and as such is now poised to become a style influencer. Start preparing for some serious sartorial competition, Mrs. Obama. {WWD} Apparently the town crier who announced shouted the news of the birth of HRH Prince George had absolutely no royal affiliation, apart from just being obsessed with the royals. Hey, we love them too, but we don't take it that far. {Daily Mail}
