Well, now her entire collection of gems is going up for auction in December. Christie's in New York will be selling the 300 pieces, valued at over $30 million. And yes, The Ring is included amongst that number. Save your pennies, darlings – and be extra sweet to your sugar daddies, if you...

My déjà vu means I need two trenches for the fashion season just before actual Fall. I actually fell for them both. And incidentally, while we are speaking of embellished capes, I have not forgotten Lee McQueen's zardozi-encrusted and buckled, asymmetrical wool cape from his last...

Monsieur Theyskens, of course, does wonders with denim – it's not just an untested Theory. He wasn't the only one to stay on brand. Jenna Lyons remained true to her J. Crew label, too. Lyons, fittingly, wore jean with her sheen. Ah, the highs and lows of fashion in the modern...

Given the length of her hair, the golden waves and the '50s vintage gown, I couldn't help having a déjà vu. Renée Zellweger in Jean Desse, at the 2011 Oscars. While it isn't quite the same dress, it's from the same decade, the same colour and Ms. Westfeldt accessorized it very...
