1. UK-based Selfridges will open a concept store in celebration of the Nineties. We wish we could stop by–it’ll include presentations of iconic vintage pieces by Vivienne Westwood, Azzedine Alaia, and more, plus MAC’s best makeup looks of the decade. Don’t you love the colorblock Chanel suit at left? Get bright-eyed with a brand new tube of awesome mascara, plus check out Billion Dollar Babes for their Chanel Vintage online sample sales and see all of this week’s sample sales. [Vogue UK]

2. An MIT professor studied counterfeiting–and it turns out, fakes are good for a brand’s business, driving more people to buy the real thing. Thinking about splurging? See our Fashion Math equations and our handbag guide to help you weigh your options. [WWD]

3. The Daily Telegraph imagines a fashion “smackdown” between Katie Couric and Diane Sawyer and the designers who dress them for their on-air jobs. If you’re running out of clothes for work, you’ve got to look through our guides to the best pencil skirts and comfortable high heels. We’ve got you covered. [The Daily Telegraph]

4. Watch out Olympics! Apparently, Kate Moss is ringing in 2010 with a new resolution: to become a synchronized swimmer. See our guide to cheap workout gear for the stuff that’ll make you excited to work out. [Elle UK]
