1. Ann Taylor’s comeback is getting everyone talking:  this summer, the line that’s having a major comeback will debut a new collection each  month, from May to August, including new fabrics and cuts (hello, Dolman sleeve dresses) and colors that flatter, like blush, nude, and turquoise. Didn’t we tell you Ann Taylor was cooler now? [WWD]

2. Gucci is rumored to be flirting with the idea of venturing into couture. The by-appointment-only dresses will most likely cater to celebrities–so there will likely be even more (secret) Gucci on upcoming red carpets. Get a great party dress you can actually afford instead. And throw in a pair of party shoes–it’s Tuesday, you deserve it.  [Elle UK]

3. We thought the Dubai boom was over, so we’re not sure what to make of this, but apparently Victoria Beckham and Karl Lagerfeld have been offered millions to help design a hotel in Dubai called Fashion Island. see our guides to celebrity style to channel the A-listers. [Elle UK]

4. Kylie Minogue is the latest musician to sign on to a project with Simon Cowell to help Haiti through a charity single of R.E.M.’s ’90s hit, “Everybody Hurts.” Sir Elton John, Miley Cyrus, and a slew of others are set to participate. See how you can help Haiti through fashion now. [Instyle UK]
