Pete Wentz Designs and Wears Women's Clothes

Pete Wentz's clothing label is on the verge of a major expansion. Wentz will design a junior line for Nordstrom under his four-year-old Clandestine Industries brand. The line will be sold exclusively in Nordstrom and arrive in 600 stores this April.

Trouble in Paradise for Marc Jacobs and Jason Preston

We've never seen Marc Jacobs and boyfriend Jason Preston act very lovey-dovey, so we're not surprised they experienced turbulence in paradise last week. Today the Post reports they fought so badly on a recent trip to Turks and Caicos that they had to cut their vacation short:

Rami From ‘Project Runway’ to Sell at Intermix

Project Runway winner Christian Siriano might have America swooning over his whole "fierce" thing (and inexplicably so, in our book — our gay posse got over that word long ago), but Rami Kashou's doing just fine since his line will be sold at Intermix this spring.

Louis Vuitton Going to Brooklyn: Hoax?

Can you imagine finding Louis Vuitton bags for sale in Brooklyn? Like, the real kind? Well, we couldn't either, hence our surprise and downright excitement to learn the monogrammed leather goods would be on sale in conjunction with the Takashi Murakami retrospective opening at the Brooklyn Museum April 5.

CFDA’s Anti-Knockoff Bill Hits a Major Snag

High-end designers have been moaning about copyright protection and the proliferation of knockoffs for years, but after working with the American Apparel and Footwear Association to iron out a fashion copyright bill called the Design Piracy Prohibition Act, the CFDA just received some bad news:

Marc Jacobs, Tom Ford, and Tory Burch Nab CFDA Noms

Last night the Council of Fashion Designers of America unveiled the nominees for their 2008 awards, the Oscars of the fashion world. You'll never guess who got nominated for womenswear — Marc Jacobs. Surprise! He's in the running with Calvin Klein head designer Francisco Costa and the boys of Proenza Schouler, Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough.

DVF: Fashion's New Riot Grrl?

Diane Von Furstenberg — riot grrl? The design genius is now the grande dame behind the latest girl-power movement. Last night, in celebration of International Women's Day (which is tomorrow), DVF turned her meatpacking-district studio into a theater, plastered with Warholian depictions of — what else? — her face.

Dolce and Gabbana to Move Into a Monastery?

Italian dynamic duo Dolce and Gabbana owes money to the man. Or should we say l'uomo. According to Italian newsweekly L'Espresso, the fashion house was fined $3 million for tax evasion after a third-party distributor resold more than 100,000 items off the books. But the Batman and Robin of fashion still have enough money to buy a monastery, WWD reports.

Contestants Turn on ‘Project Runway’

Has Project Runway gone stale? Season-four runner-up Jillian Lewis and winner Christian Siriano think so. Lewis tells WWD:

"Personally, watching it, they need to change the format or something to refresh the love people have for the show." … [Lewis] felt the show could last, "maybe another season or two. I love the show, but now it feels it's easier to predict what's going to happen."

Victoria Beckham Sacrifices Her Sense of Self for British ‘Vogue’

We confess we were miffed when Victoria Beckham went nuts for Christian Siriano's collection in the Project Runway season finale and proclaimed she would love, even feel honored, to wear his clothes. Beckham may not be known for her minimalist fashion sense (when Roberto Cavalli designs your tour clothes, subtlety just isn't for you), but even we were surprised she went so gaga for Siriano's ruffle-and-feather parade.
