-------

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]

Amy Winehouse’s collections for Fred Perry will continue, WWD reported today. When the singer died last month, Fred Perry hit the “pause” button on the collection, but the Winehouse family would like the remaining two collections she created to be released. [WWD]

Model Petra Nemcova isn’t keeping her wedding dress designer a secret. The bride-to-be, who will marry actor Jamie Belman next June, revealed she will walk down the aisle in Marchesa. [Vogue U.K.]

Uniqlo has partnered with Barbie and Disney, and now the Japanese retailer has joined forces with another all-American brand: Coca-Cola. For their eighth annual UT Grand Prix, contestants can create T-shirt designs inspired by Coke for a winning prize of $10,000. The top ten designs will be sold in Uniqlo stores worldwide this fall.

London-based designer Richard Nicoll is on call with Vodafone. The cell phone company will sponsor his next two runway shows, and they are collaborating on a new accessory that “fuses technology and cutting edge design.” [WWD]

Louboutin And YSL Bare Their Soles, Sasha Pivovarova Teams Up With Timberlake, Remembering Amy Winehouse, And More…

-------

The Christian Louboutin and Yves Saint Laurent red shoe battle continues. After a long day of examining YSL’s all-red pump from the Resort ’11 collection and comparing it to Louboutin’s trademark red soles, Judge Victor Marrero decided he needs more sole-searching time in order to make the final decision as to whether YSL is allowed to continue selling the pump. [WWD]

Model Sasha Pivovarova is bringing sexy back to the big screen in her acting debut alongside Justin Timberlake. She will play JT’s mother-in-law in the sci-fi film In Time, which also stars Amanda Seyfried, Cillian Murphy, and Olivia Wilde. [Vogue.U.K.]

Could another supermodel also be making a move to movies? Miranda Kerr was seen meeting with Harvey Weinstein in New York last week, but it turns out they were discussing her role as judge on the upcoming Project Runway All-Stars series, along with Weinstein’s wife, Georgina Chapman of Marchesa. [Page Six]

The world continues to react to the sad news that nouveau soul singer Amy Winehouse was found dead in her London home on Saturday. The singer, famous for her beehive ‘do, thick black cat-eye liquid liner, and innumerable tattoos, made her mark on fashion when she served as a muse to Karl Lagerfeld for his December 2007 Chanel show (Lagerfeld called her a “style icon”) and wowed the crowd at Paris fashion week when she performed at the opening of Fendi’s Avenue Montaigne store.

Amy For Perry, Bye-Bye Bea (Again), And More…

-------

Amy Winehouse—remember her?—is designing a capsule collection for Fred Perry (pictured). But this isn’t just a “sign the dotted line, cash the check” agreement. “The range clearly has Amy’s handwriting,” says a Perry exec. Shakily, we imagine. [WWD]

Bad news—maybe—for NYC revelers. Restaurateur Cobi Levy turned up at a community board meeting yesterday to seek approval for his new tapas venture…at the former Beatrice Inn. Closing time is looking to be 1 or 2 a.m. So much for the Bring Back Beatrice campaigns. [Page Six]

Speaking of real estate, the Seaside Heights house that put up Jersey Shore‘s Bumpit-ed residents (we’ll never believe that poof is 100 percent organic) is now renting for $2,500 a night. Vacation in (Ed Hardy) style! [NYT]

And good news for the guys: Yohji Yamamoto has announced that after a few seasons off the runway, he’ll show his menswear collection in Tokyo this April. [WWD]

Yea, Nay, Or Eh: What Do You Wear Under Oath?

-------


Maybe the St. Lucia sun melted her cares away, but Amy Winehouse showed up for court in London yesterday looking a bit, well, unkempt in an ill-fitting Roland Mouret-knockoff suit, dirty ballet flats, and a ragged ‘do. Maybe that’s not so surprising, but the question is: What’s appropriate court attire? We’ve seen Michael Jackson, may he rest in peace, in pajamas and Courtney Love looking like she picked up the first things she found on the floor. Then there was Nicole Richie channeling Audrey Hepburn in an L.B.D., Jackie O shades, and Louboutin pumps facing DUI charges in 2007. Our favorite has to be Winona Ryder. Her ladylike Marc Jacobs dresses, prim cardigans, and cute headbands could very well have contributed to that not-guilty verdict. Any others we’re missing?
