What’s better than a Gwen Stefani return with pop-punk band No Doubt? How about the group’s leading lady covering the January issue of VOGUE, clad in Hedi Slimane‘s latest collection for Saint Laurent? Go ahead and think about it… we’ll wait. [Fashionista]

If you’re a GIRLS fan, then your year just keeps getting better and better. Nail virtuoso Deborah Lippman crafted a nail line for the Lena Dunham-created series, named after each of the star characters. There’s “hapless hunter green” for Hannah, “prim and proper pink” for Marnie, “virtuous vivid violet” for Shoshanna, and a “bohemian burgundy” for Jessa. Get that mani together this Monday, and all week long. [GlamBlush]

According to Beyoncé, girls run the world (can we blame her?), and in the U.K., that means Queen Elizabeth II rules the catwalk, too. A runway is being built in her honor for the 60th anniversary of her coronation and will feature brands and companies that have serviced the Queen, Duke of Edinburgh, and the Prince of Wales for the past five years. Tailored works from Gieves & Hawkes and Dege & Skinner will appear alongside Hunter rainboots and custom Christmas crackers from Tom Smith. [VOGUE UK]

If Grace Coddington says it, then it must be law. According to the second commander-in-chief at VOGUE, controversial designer John Galliano is bracing for a return to fashion “when he’s ready.” On her other fashion friend, Nicolas Ghesquière — whose departure from Balenciaga left us all in shock — she says “he’s too brilliant to just disappear.” [VOGUE UK]

Renzo Rossi, the man behind Diesel denim and its “Be Stupid” campaigns, is rumored to be buying a stake in Marni. If the deal does go through, Marni will operate under Rossi’s Only The Brave holding company, alongside Diesel, Maison Martin Margiela, and Viktor & Rolf. [Telegraph UK]

Monique L’huillier is taking her talent for exquisite gowns and stunning down-the-aisle dresses to bridal footwear. She’ll be debuting a four-collection capsule — replete with lace-y goodness — next spring, making good on her goal to dress her brides from head to toe. [WWD]
