YSL Sells, Tavi To Tokyo, And More…

-------

The YSL auction numbers are in, and they’re bigger than expected. Items from the beloved designer’s estate went for around $13.4 million, including an umbrella stand ($162,475) and Hermès luggage ($44,420). Maybe you can buy good taste. [WWD]

Tavi, the pint-size fashion blogger, is heading to Tokyo. She’ll be the “guest of honor” at Comme des Garçons’ holiday party on November 27, barring any further gym class injuries. [WWD]

Michael Jackson’s rhinestone-encrusted glove, the “holy grail” of King of Pop memorabilia, went for $350,000 at auction this weekend. In case you’re wondering, that’s 10,000 times its original price. [Times Online]

This year’s National Stiletto Championship race is drawing nigh. The competition, scheduled for this Friday in Paris, boasts close to 100 contestants, who must run in three-inch (or higher) heels. The prize, clearly, is more shoes. [HuffPo]

It’s not just the clothes that are getting an upgrade at Celine, but the selling strategy, as well. Standalone stores are closing, and a “boutique concept” is on tap for next year. We’ll take those leather tops wherever we can get ‘em. [Vogue U.K.]

Abercrombie & Fitch could become part of François-Henri Pinault’s PPR family, which includes luxury labels like Gucci, Alexander McQueen, and Stella McCartney. Does this mean Salma Hayek will have to wear lumberjack shirts and corduroy to premieres now? [The Cut]

Are Jude and Sienna back on? Either way, the New York sighting was inevitable. [NY Daily News]

    it’s so understandable that Comme des Garcons invited Tavi to their party as a guest of honor…Japanese will love her and her neutral geeky chic look.
    I can hear Japanese girls are repeating the word “kawaii” already…She will be adored.

    Is anyone else jealous of little Tavi? Not only is she uber cool at 13 (infair. what happened to growing pains?), but she gets to rub shoulders with Chloe and be a guest of honor at Comme Des Garcons party!?!
    I’ll just got back to my measly blog and link it up to hers…
