News: Jewelry Goes Eco, Levi's Loves Paris, Women's Feet Are Bigger

1. Jewelers are becoming more socially responsible due to the increasing interest in how gold and other precious materials like diamonds are mined. We’ve got you covered in our guide to eco shopping. [WWD]

2. In the UK, the Queen has named the recipients of her Honours List for 2010 of fashion’s most influential people, including Luella Bartley, milliner Stephen Jones, and Amanda Wakeley, known for her red carpet gowns. See our list of Top 9 of 2009 fashion icons, plus see our guides to ultra chic rain boots that look cool even during the worst weather to come. [Vogue UK]

3. Parisians may get a fourth Levi’s store soon. French  newspapers report the all-American denim retailer plans to take over a space on the legendary Champs-Elysées street, where there is now a Planet Hollywood. Find your new best pair of skinny jeans, go rock ‘n roll in black jeans, or try out a CJ by Cookie Johnson pair, which Oprah says are her favorite. [WWD]

4. Women’s feet are getting larger, according to a new report. In 2009, sales for size 9s increased by 23 percent. Whereas 30 years ago, stores stocked size 4s for women, now they are more likely to carry size 9s–and some UK retailers are considering adding 10s as standard. See the best boots for wide calves, plus get yourself a new pair of party shoes for the new year. [Daily Telegraph]
