Heads up: Fashion plate/actress Diane Kruger says she is "about to create a new handbag with Jason Wu." It will be called the "Diane." Logical, and exciting because it now means we can (kind of) get our hands on her impeccable style. Also, she's currently shooting a new Chanel ad campaign in Los Angeles with Peter Lindbergh. {Elle}

We knew that the Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba was en route to going public in the States, and now its fashion marketplace has touched down on U.S. soil — er, desktops. Called 11 Main, the site is home to over 1,000 sellers across clothing, accessories, jewelry and home goods, and it's hoping to draw shoppers (and merchants) away from other sites like Amazon and Ebay. It's invite-only at the moment and unclear when it will open up to the public. {WSJ}

In case you were wondering if designers burn out after turning out season after season — spring/summer, resort, pre-fall, etc, etc. — the answer is yeah, kinda. But according to designer Maria Cornejo, just when she starts to think that she's run out of inspiration for her collections, a new idea pops into her head out of desperation. Not exactly a ringing endorsement of the currently crazed fashion calendar, but not a condemnation either. {Man Repeller}

Candice Swanepoel went very "Coyote Ugly" in a full-on leather look at the Maxim Hot 100 Awards — or as one Fashionista writer put it, "Like Tara Reid circa 1999." Please leave your thoughts in the comments below. {Huffington Post}
