Alexa Chung Wants To Design; Harry Shows off The Crown Jewels

And Grace Coddington collaborates with Balenciaga.

All On Her Own: In an interview for Numero Tokyo, Alexa Chung revealed that she is planning to design her own line of clothing at some point, following two successful capsule collections for Madewell. "'I’ve got nothing to lose, it’s a bit of fun," she said. "In this current era of celebrity no one believes you actually design the stuff anyway, even though I sketch everything myself. So if it sucks I can say I had nothing to do with it, and if it’s really good I can say ‘Here are the drawings, it’s all my own work!” ++[Daily Mail]

The Crown Jewels: On the heels of a binge weekend in Las Vegas, Prince Harry did exactly what we knew he would do: he took off all of his clothes, and let himself get photographed. It was only a matter of time! TMZ got its hands on photos of the royal in the final stages of a game of strip-billiards with a bunch of girls he had met at the Wynn casino. Writes The Daily Beast’s Tom Sykes: “The real horror, of course, would be a video of the trip party emerging.” We’ll give it 24 hours. [The Royalist]

Style & Grace: Vogue’s creative director Grace Coddington has even gotten in on the Fashion’s Night Out action.  She’s teamed up with Balenciaga on a ‘pumpkin’ collection of handbags that are covered in her signature cat sketches. (Meanwhile, Fashion’s Night Out has released their big PSA starring pretty much everyone you can think of in the world.) [Refinery 29]
