    6. The Kardashians get the Annie Leibovitz treatment for The Kardashian Kollection at Sears, posing in their usual attire of leopard and lingerie.  Is it just us, or are these three sisters looking konspicuously the same height? [LNP]

    7. Emma Watson stars in a less than stellar commercial for Lancome's Tresor Midnight Rose, think longing glances, coy smiles and even a hat trick. Don't say we didn't warn you.

    8. Spanish retailer Zara kicks it up a notch, launching e-commerce in the U.S. today! Their full range of apparel will now be available on their website, shipping to all 50 states.  Now, if only H&M would follow suit. [WWD]

    9. Model/Actress Molly Sims is set to host Lifetime's Project Runway spin-off, Project Accessory. Sims is no stranger to the accessory world, as she debuted her own line of jewelry, Grayce by Molly Sims, last year.  The show will focus on aspiring jewelry designers who will compete for a cash prize, much like its Runway counterpart. Here's to hoping she can come up with a slightly less irritating catch-phrase than "Auf Wiedersehen". [LifeandStyle]

    10. Anne Hathaway strikes a pose for TOD's signature collection, looking effortlessly seductive despite having her hands full.  The line of bags and small leather goods hit stores in October. [PeopleStyleWatch]
