- Beyonce went wild at Harvey Nichols in London this weekend, spending over $30,000 on goods like a Rodarte biker jacket and the Alexander Wang studded "Coco Duffel," which, we should add, is completely sold out in the States. Do British people not buy Wang handbags like we do? Bottom line, it's good to be Beyonce. [Grazia]

- The Yves Saint Laurent auction raised a total of $13.22 million, which was three times what the organizers had expected. We're sure the umbrella holder that sold for $163,000 didn't hurt.  [The Cut]

- PPR, the luxury retail group spearheaded by Francois-Henri Pinault (a.k.a. Mr. Salma Hayek) may spin off some of its brands -- which include Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent, and Stella McCartney -- to offset the company's debt. [Telegraph UK]

- The annual Stiletto Championship race will take place in Paris this Friday, with 100 finalists having made the cut to compete. Work it, ladies! [HuffPo]

- Tiffany & Co. commissioned three exclusive pieces for its almost-open Las Vegas outpost, including a $15,000 diamond-encrusted Tiffany key. What recession? [WWD]
