Your morning fashion and beauty report: Two Gossip Girls and one Fonda
-- Sears (that's right Sears) is pairing up with French Connection for a line of clothing called UK Style. [WWD] (subscription required).
-- Also in the decline of Western civilization category: Tim Gunn had a few choice words to say (to E! News) about Taylor Momsen. Among them? She is "pathetic" and a "diva." [The Cut]
-- Speaking of Gossip Girls, Christian Louboutin (no... wait, we know he's not a member of the cast!) has named a shoe after Blake Lively. [People]
Gucci, in the meantime, has made a deal with the Recording Academy (the folks who bring us the Grammys) to preserve "milestone" musical recordings. [WWD] (subscription required).
-- Models who participate in London Fashion Week now have access to employment contracts that establish minimum rates of pay and a minimum age (16) to participate. [Vogue UK]
-- And, finally, Jane Fonda is back in her leotard with two new fitness videos that will be released later this fall. Did we mention that she's 72? And that she's looking pretty darn great? Feel the burn. [NY Daily News]
