Marc Jacobs May Bid Adieu to Louis Vuitton: After an impressive 16-year stint as Creative Director of Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs may be leaving the fashion house to advance work on his eponymous label, possibly with an IPO (initial public offering), sources revealed over the weekend. Speculation about the designer’s contract with the LVMH luxury brand first emerged last week, although things have yet to be confirmed. [WWD]

Twilight Director Selling T-Shirt from Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson’s First Kissing Scene: While Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson may not be rekindling their off-screen love anytime soon, Twi-hards can experience the Bella and Edward romance all over again. The t-shirt that Bella wore in her very first Twillight kissing scene with Edward is now up for auction. Director of the vampire-cult movies, Catherine Hardwicke, will raffle off the t-shirt to raise money for the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF) and the University of California’s “Promise for Education” campaign. Unlike most auctions, the prize won’t go to the top bidder -- a donation of at least $25 grants anyone a chance of winning, and Hardwicke will award the t-shirt to a randomly selected donor.
