• Slaves to fashion: Leonardo DiCaprio paramour Bar Rafaeli shoots an ad campaign for Israeli fashion house Irit, in which she's pictured being fanned and tended to by three black models. Next up? She'll be modeling corsets à la Scarlett O'Hara with a Mammy look-alike extra.
• Not her bag: After designer Anya Hindmarch debuts her eco-chic "I'm Not a Plastic Bag" bag, contrarians volley with an "I'm Not a Smug Twat!" bag. Drudge would be proud.
• So go UK yourself: Remember that New York magazine article about how London's so much cooler than Manhattan?
