Women's wear cover Yearning for your royals fix of the morning? Well, we have two words for you. Bruce Oldfield. The London designer is rumored to be in line (so to speak) to create Kate Middleton's wedding dress ... for now, anyway. [People

In the meantime, Women's Wear Daily has asked a number of designers to submit sketches of their suggestions for "The Dress." [WWD]

If you wonder why designer collaborations won't go away, wonder no more: H&M reports sales increased 8% last month, thanks (in part) to its Lanvin collection. [The Cut]

Robin Givhan, the Pulitzer Prize-winning writer from the Washington Post, who spent many of her years there as fashion editor, is leaving the newspaper to join Tina Brown's Newsweek/Daily Beast mash-up. Givhan's title will be special correspondent for style and culture. [New York Times]

Meanwhile, Oprah Winfrey's hair stylist, Andre Walker, is launching a new hair-care line on HSN on Thursday. [Stylelist]

And finally, The Guardian has compiled an alternative best-dressed list for 2011. Among the lucky on the list: Willow Smith, Tamara Mellon and Harry Styles.
