• Bags designed by Tory Burch , Jason Wu, and Tommy Hilfiger, among others, were sold on eBay yesterday as part of the company’s “You Can’t Fake Fashion” campaign. The sale was supposed to start at 11 a.m., but a computer glitch reportedly made it start early, and so many e-shoppers planning to snap up the bags missed out. Sad times. [Page Six/NYP]

Helena Christensen: "It's really intimidating to go on the beach in a bikini. If someone is painting neon circles around parts of your body, like those pathetic tabloid magazines, it makes me so angry. I can't believe that humans have sunk to this level; it's so ingrained, people are brainwashed with it." [Telegraph UK]
