• The ever-outspoken Roberto Cavalli may have dressed his share of celebrities over the years, but he admits that today, he’s over it–or at least the system though which designers pay celebrities to be photographed in their clothes. “I wish fashion were less tied to communication and stars,” he said. “I can’t understand all these fashion companies spending millions to dress celebrities. And the fault is also that of the media that fuel this frenzy. I don’t care to spend millions to dress Lady Gaga so that she can say she is wearing my clothes. That’s why I have pulled out of the Oscars circuit and I go to the Grammys. It’s different there.” (WWD)

• A certain fashionable TV and film franchise beaten nearly to death might have to endure a few more blows. Entertainment Weekly reports that we could possibly be looking at a third Sex and The City movie. Executive producer Michael Patrick says there’s more to the story of Carrie and the gang, although he doesn’t know for sure if he’ll pursue it: “Sarah Jessica and I both know what that final chapter is. That doesn’t mean it will or should be told, but I do think there’s one story left,” he said. “Whether it ever happens is a whole other situation. But there’s four girls, and those girls are still in my mind.” What say you, Bombers and Bombshells? Would you be down for a SATC trilogy? (EW)


Idris Elba for GQ October 2013• GQ is pretty much the authority on men’s style, and now, the magazine is trying to turn its hip aesthetic into actual retail locations. The first of these efforts is a pop-up shop in partnership with Northern Grade, which will sell menswear products at the powerHouse Arena in Brooklyn’s DUMBO district. The market will carry clothes by designers like Billy Reid, Giles & Brother, and Noble Denim. But this venture isn’t the end of efforts to expand into the retail market. But GQ publisher Chris Mitchell says that the magazine is also exploring brick-and-mortar and e-tail possibilities for the future. (WWD)
