1. Stuart Weitzman, the famed shoe designer, will branch out to leather handbags–the new line will cost between $345 and $595 (see left). Whether you’re looking for a bag for day or night, we’ve got your number: check out our guide to the coolest handbags  under $250. [WWD]

2. Britain announced their “Power 25” – the list of the most influential fashion icons in the nation, including models, photographers, designers and makeup artists. Kate Moss and Naomi  Campbell topped the list, of course. More surprisingly was Lady Gaga’s PR rep. Huh. And tonight  are the British Fashion Awards–big week in the UK for the fashion set. Take a cue from Kate Moss and invest in some awesome leggings, or a great party dress. [Guardian]

3. We’ve been following Audrey Hepburn’s wardrobe auction closely, so here are the results–the 40 items exceeded expectations, and the foundation raised $437,448. We’d have to do a lot of Fashion Math to justify that price–but 50% went to the late actress’s children’s charity. [Vogue UK] Speaking of auctions, Yves Saint Laurent’s house in Paris went up for sale. Want a little YSL? Grab an awesome blazer, his go-to, and some wide-leg jeans. [Vogue UK]

4. Jil Sander’s second collection with Uniqlo, +J, will be available in the U.S. January 14 (in Japan, though, it debuts December 23). It will include knits, high-tech satin, sumptuous wool, and “chalked-out acids.” Sounds cool to us. Her previous collection in October had lines down the block, so bundle up this year in the newest grown-up UGG boots, and puffy coats. [WWD]
