Does Janie Bryant ever sleep? The Mad Men costume designer, who has also created clothing line for sale on QVC, a nail polish range and vlogs for Banana Republic, has now teamed up with the 88-year-old brassiere brand Maidenform to work on a viral marketing campaign. Will be as successful as the legendary “I dreamed I…” campaign from the 50s and 60s? Only YouTube will tell… [Fashionista]

T’was tweeted: “thanks vanity fair for NOT crediting me in the story….VANITY UN-FAIR …..agrhhh!!!!” Argh indeed, according to stylist Nicola Formichetti, the man behind the much-buzzed gray-haired Lady Gaga Vanity Fair shoot, the mag didn’t credit him for his work. And off to Twitter it went. [@formichetti via Racked]

Brigitte Bardot recently said of Carla Bruni-Sarkozy “she’s as beautiful as she is badly brought-up,” after the French first lady failed to say thank you when Brigitte gifted her with a special edition Bardot-inspired Lancel bag.  She probably forgot about it after she tossed it in the closet to live with the other Birkins and diamond-studded Chanel bags she received that day.

British designer Gareth Pugh has just made his retail debut with a shop in Hong Kong. Surrounded by the likes of Gucci, Hermès and Ann Demeulemeester, Pugh relishes “It creates a sense of luxury around the brand and what I do that may not be so apparent in other cities, such as London.” Translation: my gothy sci-fi designs are now luxury-by-association.

Naomi Campbell will be testifying at former Liberian president Charles Taylor’s trial. The model, who allegedly received a large uncut blood diamond from Taylor, has demanded that the media does not photograph her and that her lawyer speaks at the stand for her. [Jezebel]
