She has spent almost $1 million in litigation at this point,” a source told The New York Post. “She says it’s the principle, and wants to make a statement about it.” [Vogue UK]

Haute Hippie founder Trish Wescoat Pound is finally giving us something we can wrap our fingers around. The “rock ‘n’ roll bohemian” brand has headed to the handbag world with an exclusive collection of python clutches.
