- Leave it to Refinery29 to find incredibly convincing evidence to support their argument that certain designers have been influenced by muppet characters. (Let's be clear, Cookie Monster was part of Sesame Street, not The Muppets, even though he's muppet-like). The Chris Benz comparison to Wembly from Fraggle Rock is  particularly brilliant.

- Making an album isn't even enough for Diane von Furstenberg, who recently revealed she'll also be designing about 20 rooms and suites for Claridge's in London. [WWD]

- Paging Captain Obvious: Scientists apparently have reported that men "become more accident prone in front of beautiful women." The theory is that the fairer sex actually encourages men to engage in activity that might be a little more physically daring than what they'd normally do. Um, obviously. [Daily Mail]

- The more we see of Jessica Simpson's new VH1 show, "The Price of Beauty," the more we're forced to admit we might like it. In fact, we might stop making fun of Ms. Simpson's reality TV show efforts full-stop after this clip. [HuffPo]

- A mere week after their Fall 2010 collection was shown in London, designers Graeme Fidler and Michael Herz have announced their resigning from Aquascutum. Apparently, the parting was "amicable." [Fashion Week Daily]

- This incredible photo tour of a 15-year-old model from Wichita, Kansas's fashion week adventures is enough to make anyone believe in the magic of the week. [LIFE]
