By  March 26, 2013

Now, the Yale University grad is sharing her expertise in a week-long stint at the guest editor for AOL’s StyleList. Williams will be writing posts on her own wardrobe style inspirations, her coveted items for spring, and what exactly is inside her makeup bag. [StyleList]

If celebrities and supermodels weren’t enough, now we have Minnie Mouse giving us a serious does of closet envy. The beloved Disney character has received the designer treatment thanks to Alber Elbaz and his team at Lanvin. Gone is her red-and-white polka dot dress and matching bow, her signature ensemble since 1928. In its place is a very grown-up, blue embroidered dress and bold fascinator. “I just wanted her to shine,” Elbaz said. “I wanted to give her a crown in red, and the dress in blue, (a signature) for Lanvin.” [Telegraph]

Finally, Victoria Beckham‘s must-have icons, luxurious leather totes, and oversized aviators are available for us to shop with just a click. The designer’s eponymous line is officially a part of the Internet with the launch of her first e-commerce site today. And, if you’re shopping the best of Beckham in New York or London, you can opt for same-day delivery. Score! [Marie Claire UK]

Urban Outfitters is about to get Nasty-er! The funky-hip-kitshcy lifestyle pusher is considering a buyout of similarly cool e-tailer, Nasty Gal. In an interview with The New York Times, Nasty Gal founder Sophia Amoruso confirmed that she and the big wigs at Urban are in fact “talking” about a potential acquisition. Meaning we could get all of our NastyGal gear in person as opposed to waiting for our box of trendy goods to arrive. We vote yes! [Racked]

The cool kids may have touted Yoko Ono‘s foray into menswear with her John Lennon-inspired capsule collection at Opening Ceremony, but not everyone was a fan of the collaboration. Namely, Haleh Nematzadeh, a Brooklyn-based designer who claims Ono mimicked her work for the 1969-2012 line and has decided to sue, citing that she brought her handprinted looks to OC in July 2012 for consideration for their Spring 2013 collection.
