1. British clothing line Miss Selfridge is Gossip Girl-crazy, and soon will roll out a collection based on the style of each of the characters. It will include boho styles for Vanessa, a bandage dress (Serena) a Blair-worthy pretty floral skirt with ruffle top, and a nude and black tulle skirt Jenny would lust after. See our collection of party dresses we love, in all different styles, plus party shoes, of course. Would you wear designs modeled after a character? [Vogue UK]

2. After announcing she’ll only attend 3 days of the 7 day Milan Fashion Week, Anna Wintour asked that some events be switched around, but Italy’s mayor wrote the editrix a letter repremanding her: “No one, not even if her name is Anna Wintour, can take the liberty to do and undo our fashion calendar.” See our calendar of online sample sales to get really great deals no one can undo.

3. Olympic ice skater Johnny Weir, whose uniforms were designed by Vera Wang, has expressed his interest in becoming a fashion designer as his second career, saying he wants to open stores and launch several fashion lines. Olympian Torah Bright has him beat–she’s already designed a collection of snow gear with Roxy. While you’re browsing, look through our guide to winter boots that don’t look like they’re waterproof.

4. Fashion Week has been filled with Alexander McQueen tributes and references, and now Gucci Group must decide what to do with the brand. Only time will tell if it could still be successful without the visionary’s unique mind. We’re going to go ahead and say no. What’s your vote?
