• Ex-French Vogue Editor in Chief Carine Roitfeld has a new 9-to-5—the fashion plate will act as editor, muse, and stylist for Barneys’ Fall 2011 catalog, campaign, mailers, and the Madison Avenue windowscapes. {Fashionologie}

• Guess what (heh)? Actress Amber Heard (from Pineapple Express and Zombieland) has been named spokesmodel for the new Guess 2011 fall campaign. {People StyleWatch}

• Colorblocking was all the rage on the spring runways, including Proenza Schouler and Christopher Kane. If you think “colorblocking” has something to do with Legos or crayons, watch this how-to. {Fabsugar}

• According to this video, a dab of aspirin will calm the mean-red Mt. Vesuvius-size zit on our chin. We’ll believe it when we see it. {Styelist}

• This almost seems too bonkers to be true: A mom in the UK reportedly pumps Botox into her 8-year-old daughter’s face to “ensure she stays looking younger and baby-faced for longer.” {Fashionista}

• Who does Brooklyn Decker look like now with her new choppy bob haircut? We can’t quite put or finger on it… (She cut off 10 inches!) {Stylelist}

• “I personally know of one model who dipped cotton balls in orange juice and consumed it to feel full,” says Janice Celeste, mother of supermodel Sessilee Lopez, in her tell-all (disturbing/addictive) book, Making a Supermodel. {Huffington Post}

• The same company that made those tinsel extensions that Beyoncé wore to the Grammys last year, has now set their sights on plumage. Hair Flairs now offers an at-home feather extension kit. Feather Party. {Allure}

• We thought that a fragrance made to smell like human poo was gross enough. Then we saw the fragrance’s ad. GROSSEST. {Fashionista}

• More fashion designers. More legal woes. Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana (Dolce & Gabbana) have been accused of tax fraud for failing to pay taxes on more than $1 billion in income, and will soon stand trial…and could face jail time. We’re deeply upset. And intensely preoccupied with what they’ll wear to court. {The Cut}

• Check out Gisele Bündchen’s full Vogue Paris spread. It’s bedraggled (seriously) in all of the right ways. {Styleite}
