Wang’s Win, Daphne’s Shoes, and More…-------
Alexander Wang can’t stop winning. The 2008 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund winner
scooped up this year’s Swiss Textiles Award, beating out five other

Lynn Hirschberg deconstructs Megan Fox. Is her sexed-up image all an act? Unclear, but the actress does use those chicken-cutlet boob enhancements. That’s kind of a relief, right? [NYT]
Costco’s made it to Manhattan. The mammoth food-clothing-electronics-and-everything-else emporium opened its doors today on 116th Street. Go there for a wall of Uggs ($124.99), Chanel
handbags ($1,999.99), and Louis Vuitton duffels ($589.99). No one has to
know where it came from. [NY Post]
