and The Wall Street Journal offers tips for Google Glass etiquette.
Keira Knightley Marries in Chanel: Keira Knightley married James Righton, keyboardist of British indie rock quartet Klaxons, at a low-key ceremony in the south of France on Friday. The bride, who is the face of Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle perfume, wore a white Chanel tulle dress--which looks strikingly similar to the one she wore to the BAFTA Awards in 2008--and a matching Chanel jacket. Of the reported 11 guests in attendance, according to The Telegraph, some wore flip-flops. [Telegraph]

According to Bloomberg, the firms are looking to hire the Credit Suisse Group to assist with the sale. A spokesperson for the bank declined to comment, as did representatives from Warburg, Neiman Marcus, and TPG. [Reuters]
Google Glass Etiquette: The introduction of Google Glass has raised certain doubts in the fashion world over the accessory's wearability. The Wall Street Journal has addressed these concerns by crafting a special etiquette guide on how to wear the futuristic specs. Among their gems of advice are: use voice commands only when needed, don’t use Google Glass to make phone calls in public, and let other people try the glasses on so they too can learn to embrace the new technology.
