The strapless dress Amy Winehouse wore on the cover of her Back to Black album is being auctioned off (for an estimated £10,000 to £20,000) at the end of the month. The dress, designed by Central Saint Martins graduate Disaya Sorakraikitikul, will benefit a charity in Winehouse’s memory. [Telegraph]

Kensington Palace is getting a whole new look, staff uniforms included. Stuart Stockdale, the design director of Jaeger, has been working with Palace curator Deirdre Murphy on a new uniform inspired by the “Palace’s 1,000-piece dress archive for inspiration, with 19th- and 20th-century men’s court uniforms and the wardrobe of Edward VIII proving highlights.” [Vogue U.K.]

While the rest of the models appearing in today’s Victoria’s Secret runway show have been surviving on “liquids and egg powder,” Chanel Iman has managed to pack on 15 pounds for the show. Iman says, “I drink a lot of protein shakes and do a lot of weight lifting.” [Huff Po]

Kanye West reportedly invited the entire Mercer Hotel staff to his New Jersey “Watch the Throne” performance with Jay-Z last night. He gave all of them complimentary tickets because “‘sources said the stars wanted to return the favor after they took over the second floor of the Soho hotel to produce their album and were well looked-after.” [Page Six]
