With Pierre Bergé in your corner, anything is possible… like gaining unprecedented access to the archives of Yves Saint Laurent for his anticipated biopic. Such is the case with director Jalil Lespert, whose film about one of fashion’s most-celebrated figures will be released in France tomorrow—but it doesn’t come without competition. Saint Laurent, a second film helmed by Bertrand Bonello, is set for a May 2014 release, much to Bergé’s dismay.[Fashionista]

If you didn’t know Dane Dehaan before he lit up the silver screen in The Place Beyond the Pines or earned a BAFTA nom, then his second run as the face of Prada menswear should put him on your radar. [Vogue UK]

So long, Loehmann’s. New York’s 17th Street will be saying goodbye to the now-bankrupt retailer after flash sale sites like Gilt and Haute Look dominated the discount wares space. Eager shoppers can expect Barneys’ new downtown flagship to fill the block’s retail void when it reclaims its original Chelsea address. [Racked]

Joining our list is Victoria’s Secret model Lyndsey Scott, who delves in coding when she puts her wings to rest. [ELLE]

Coco Rocha and Karolina Kurkova are out, Anne V and Lydia Hearst are in. The latter will join Naomi Campbell as mentors for aspiring models on Oxygen’s second season of The Face, premiering in March. [GLAM Inbox]

You could spend the next few chilly days winterizing your wardrobe or stocking up on stylish boots… or you could peel off the layers for a healthy obsession in the comfort of your own home. Finally, the magic of an on-call masseuse! [Racked]
