1.A former Saks employee has been sentenced to 90 days in jail for third-degree larceny and for giving kickbacks to her favorite Saks customers.  Allegedly she wore bright lipstick and nail polish to her sentencing. [Racked via NYT]

2.The littlest Obamas might have set off a J. Crew frenzy by wearing the brand’s trench coats when they disembarked in Moscow.  They’re adorable, but our favorite sartorial Obama will always be Michelle.  [Fashionista via Politico 44]

3. This might be the end of launching summer clothing in February – apparel stores are doing more with less inventory, including bringing it in closer to when the consumer might actually wear it.  We’re glad to hear about any plan that’s seasonally appropriate.  [WWD]

4. The young designer Chris Benz is teaming up with Lancôme to create a new lipstick color, and anyone can enter a contest to name it.  If you can’t wait until the new shade hits stores, pick up a kit to keep your lips in top shape until then.  [Stylecaster]
