Your morning fashion and beauty report: Fergie, Tod's and thank you, Jack LaLanne

A special thanks this morning to fitness guru Jack LaLanne, who died Sunday at age 96. When LaLanne sprang into the national consciousness with a TV show aimed at housewives in the 1950s, his message was about keeping fit, but it was more than that. The subtext to a generation of women was, "Take charge of your life! You can do it!"  And they -- and their daughters watching alongside them -- did just that. Thank you, Jack. [LAT]

Afergie Pop star Fergie will kick off the second season of FN Shoe Star on Monday on FNshoestar.com with a special webisode of the series, in which Fashion Institute of Technology students compete to design shoes. The competition is sponsored by Footwear News and Brown Shoe Co. The winner will be offered an associate designer position at Brown Shoe. [WWD]
