When nominees for this year’s British Fashion Awards were announced, we banked on the perpetually relevant Kate Middleton or high-browed Cara Delevingne to triumph as the ceremony’s British Style Icon. Surprisingly, they, along with the dapper David Beckham, lost out to frequent front rower and boy band babe Harry Styles. [Pret-a-Reporter]

The Australian couple behind British label Ralph & Russo have received a rare offer. Tamara Ralph and Michael Russo, who famously outfitted Beyoncé in her opening number for the Mrs. Carter World Tour, have been invited to show at Paris Couture Week by the renowned Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture. Why all the fuss? Ralph & Russo is the first British brand to receive said invite in 100 years. [Telegraph]

Speaking of high Parisian style, the city’s latest export is banking—big—on Boston. Chanel has opened a new flagship in the east coast city totaling 10,000 square feet. It is the fourth-largest Chanel shop in the U.S., after New York, Waikiki, and Beverly Hills. [WWD]

Calling all crusaders for print: we’ve got some good news and some bad news. Bad news first: New York Magazine will no longer be released weekly, but rather biweekly to save $3.5 million annually. The good news? Its The Cut fashion blog will now be available in a si-page print tear out! [Fashionista]

As temperatures drop, fashion-philes around the nation are stocking up on winter essentials, namely the perfect winter coat. Enter Max Mara’s classic camel coat, a staple in Kim Kardashian and Jessica Chastain‘s closets, that Carine Roitfeld‘s CR Fashion Book has dubbed a “favorite, season after season.” [CR Fashion Book]

Henri Bendel is teaming up with Abigail Breslin to show a little love to our furry friends this holiday. Tonight, the starlet will host a shopping event at the New York retailer with faux fur brand IMPOSTER; 10 percent of all proceeds from the evening will be donated to the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animal and customers will have the chance to adopt puppies on site.
