    - French first lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy got to play guest editor at Madame Figaro this week, and of course selected to include a lot of her favorite things, from her charity foundation to Bono and a photo shoot with some of her close pals.

    - Balmain hair extensions. Not only are they not just a joke, they've apparently been around for almost 40 years. Just imagine the other stuff we don't know about! [Grazia Daily]

    - Nicole Formichetti -- a.k.a. Lady Gaga's stylist and the creative director of Dazed & Confused -- revealed recently that, when he was just starting out, he used to steal tons of merch from the Vivienne Westwood store. Well, at least he had good taste. [Fashionologie]

    - British department store Selfridges has officially launched e-commerce! Alas, right now the site's only good for UK customers, but they have plans to eventually roll out to other countries. [Selfridges]

    - One of Victoria Beckham's dress designs for Fall 2010 looks a lot like an Osman Yousefzada gown, fueling speculation that the design may have been lifted. But then again, it also just looks a lot like a glamorous, simple column dress. [Vogue UK]

    - Belgian-born Diane von Furstenberg recently got personal approval to be buried at Cloudwalk Farm in New Milford (along with permission to build a stone meditation garden). [NBC Connecticut]
