    - As promised, Harper's Bazaar made ladies out of Jersey Shore girls Snooki, JWoww, and Sammi -- and Tinsley Mortimer and Lizzie Post even got in on the action.

Such is the case in Stefano Pilati of YSL's noteworthy absence from the Metropolitan Opera Gala (YSL's biggest yearly event in the States). Rumors are now circulating that he's fallen out of favor at the fashion house, though of course, the brand's spokesperson has denied any friction. [The Fix]

    - All those Fashion for Haiti T-shirts have really paid off: Diane von Furstenberg, Tory Burch, and Andrew Rosen handed over a $1 million check to former president Bill Clinton on Tuesday night. [WWD]
