Beyoncé Might Be Pregnant: Beyoncé wore a tight dress to dinner in New York City’s Washington Heights neighborhood, leading to excessive bits of pregnancy speculation.  According to Hollywood Life, a witness at the restaurant “immediately noticed a small bump visible.” Or perhaps it’s possible that she just ate too much pasta?

Sad Day: Imelda Marcos, former first lady of the Philippines, was once famous for having the largest shoe collection in the world, 1,200 pairs strong. Her shoes were once stored at the National Museum in Manilla – where 800 pairs were displayed in 2001. But several were destroyed by subsequent floods. Now, the Associated Press reports, termites and water damage have destroyed most of the remaining shoes in the collection. [AP]

Not Going Back: In an interview with Vogue UK, Tom Ford said that he would never go back to work for a fashion house. (The designer, who served as creative director at Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent for 10 years, established his own line in 2004.) “Been there, done that,” he said in the interview. “I learned a tremendous amount from my time at Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent, but I was always designing within an existing framework. In launching my own line, I am allowed to only create products that I believe in. Everything at Tom Ford is steeped in my DNA - it would be a step backwards for me now to go and design for another fashion house.” (Vogue UK)
