1. David Beckham set to launch his own clothing line. Not to leave the fashion duties solely to Posh, Becks has announced his plan to produce an entire lifestyle brand. He and his business partner, Simon Fuller, desire to build a Beckham fashion empire. [Fashionista]

2. Beyoncé's latest music video for "Run The World" premiered last night and was more fashion than her past videos. Her team of stylists pulled looks fresh off the runway. The music video was splattered with clothing from top-tier designers Jean Paul Gaultier, Alexander McQueen, Givenchy, Gareth Pugh and Pucci. [StyleCaster]

3. Prabal Gurung for J. Crew, get it while its hot! The exclusive pieces from the designer collaboration are predicted to sell out rapidly. The collection features beautiful fabric-flowers and intricate bow designs, Prabal Gurung's method of clean & figure-flattering tailoring is all over this collection. [Racked]

4. According to Forbes, Lady Gaga knocks off Oprah as World's Most Powerful Celebrity. Rounding off the top 5 after Gaga and Lady O are Justin Bieber, U2 and Sir Elton John. [Forbes]

5. Don't feel too bad for Oprah though. She was recently invited to Ralph Lauren's Double RL ranch for a one-on-one with the godfather of All-American fashion. Watch the video for the tour of Ralph Lauren's Colorado ranch! [TheCut]

7. The Duchess, Sarah Ferguson looks rather regal for her Harper's Bazaar spread. [HuffPost]

8. Here's some of the best trench coats for the modern man. We can't help but agree. [NYTimes]

9. Louis Vuitton features adorable black & white Japanese Chins in their Fall Campaign and they're practically outshining the models. Word is, the pretty pooches had to go through the casting process just like their model co-stars. The other models in the Fall 2011 campaign are Zuzanna Bijoch, Daphne Groeneveld, Gertrud Hegelund, Nyasha Matonhodze, Anaïs Pouliot and Fei Fei Sun. [Fashionista]

10. Would you wear wood-paneled clothing? The Spring and Fall 2011 collections for Rodarte & Celine boldly featured hints of oddly-designed wood themed pieces. All it does is remind us of the 70's, picnic tables and a bad fabric trend. [Stylelist]
