Spotted: 15 foot technicolor tulips. A man in a lion costume. Tiny and colorfully dressed woman getting in and out of cars all day long. Is the circus in town? Well, sort of. Fall 2010 Haute Couture presentations wrapped up in Paris this week and design houses including Valentino, Chanel and Christian Dior certainly put on quite the show. Haute Couture refers to specific made-to-order clothing that is very expensive and very exclusive, since only the 11 members of France's Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture are techinically considered couture designers. Needless to say, the fashions are typically outrageous and the runway shows are usually extravagant. Highlights from this season included John Galliano's nod to Dior's 1953 tulip collection with hand-painted floral prints and layers of tulle and lace; Valentino's ultra-sophisticated cocktail dresses in silk and satin with bow details; and Karl Lagerfeld's truly over-the-top set design, complete with a giant golden lion standing on a pearl in the center of his stage. Front row glitteratti included Jessica Alba, Leighton Meester and Blake Lively (who are in town filming the new season of Gossip Girl) along with plenty of international PYT's. Swoon! (WWD)

With Mad Men's fourth season premiering in less than three weeks, we've got so many questions! Are Betty and Don really over? Who are the new clients of Sterling, Cooper, Draper and Pryce? And most importantly, what will the new season's clothes be like? In this behind the scenes video, the show's costume designer, Janie Bryant, reveals a few tidbits that have us even more excited for what's to come, including new costumes for working girl Peggy Olsen, a darker palette for leading man Don Draper and lace and jewel tones for office bombshell Joan Holloway.

Well, this just may be the weirdest use of hair we've ever heard of ... and been repulsed by. Apparently, a Brit (and royal enthusiast?) named Sam Bompas bought some of the late Princess Diana's hair on eBay and used it as an ingredrient in a jelly he created that is said to taste like condensed milk. We're not sure what to say. Even if it is Diana's hair (fairly doubtful), why oh why would anyone want to eat it? (Limelife)

The cottage industry that is Kim Kardashian keeps growing and growing. The reality star is launching her second fragrance in February 2011 though she hasn't yet given any hints as to what it will smell like. But if it's halfway as addicting as the family's E! show, we'll probably end up with a case. (Us Weekly)


Our favorite Dress My Nest and Queer Eye guy, Thom Filicia has announced that he is unveiling a new line of Kravet fabrics. Now the interior designer to celebs like J.Lo can be an influence in your home with unique color palettes and bold patterns. We're sure that these will not be run-of-the-mill fabrics, but something truly artfully designed. (ShelterPop)


Sex — it's not just for procreation, says science. A new study performed by the University of Texas discovered that women think more about sex as our ability to have children decreases. "Modern women's sexual psychology is a consequence of such evolved mechanisms," the researchers wrote. "One key design feature of this adaptation is an increased desire and willingness to engage in sexual activity during the period of declining fertility." One more reason to look forward to our golden years, we say. (Limelife)

Some sweet news this week about how chocolate affects your pregnancy: In a study about to be published in the journal entitled Annals of Epidemiology, researchers found that ingesting a little of our favorite indulgence can reduce the risk of pre-eclampsia. Bring on the M&Ms ... and Snickers ... and Klondike bars. Mmm. ... (Jezebel)
