• Alexa Chung plans to release a book of her writings, sketches, and photographs next September. [Vogue UK]

• Lady Gaga wore the same safety-pinned Versace dress that Elizabeth Hurley donned in 1994 (often considered one of the most scandalous dresses of all time). Hopefully it was dry-cleaned at some point between now and then. [Telegraph]

• Sarah Jessica Parker covers Elle’s November issue. [Elle]

• It sounds like Andrej Pejic is making a lot of money these days. [Frockwriter]

• Rebel Wilson on her personal style: “I’m a little bit preppy, but with a gangster edge. Like, for example, I’m wearing these custom-made rings from Brooklyn that say my name on them. I like to say ‘comfortable’ as well — but, I don’t know if that’s really a style.” [Refinery29]

• Architect Peter Marino was named a Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres. [WWD]

• And yesterday, Sonia Rykiel received a pair of French accolades — the Grande Médaille de Vermeil de la Ville de Parisonce and the Insignes de Commandeur des Arts et des Lettres, one of the country’s highest civilian honors. [WWD

• Model Laura Pahomova died after reportedly falling from an apartment window in Manchester, England. [Telegraph]

• Ivanka Trump cut ties with HMX Group, her ready-to-wear licensee, and is now looking for someone else to make her clothes. HMX was supposedly late in delivering her fall line to stores, and there were also some fit issues. [WWD]
