-- Thinking inside the box: According to industry trade paper WWD, big-box retailer J.C. Penney is set to debut a new logo during the Oscar telecast this weekend. We can't wait -- we had so much fun with the new -- and short-lived -- Gap logo. [WWD, subscription required]

-- According to the New York Daily News, First Lady Michelle Obama has made some personnel changes in her own unofficial cabinet -- tapping Meredith Koop as her stylist, replacing Chicago boutique owner Ikram Godman.  [NY Daily News]

-- Having just decamped to Milan from London, our fashion critic Booth Moore is already sending her "tweets from the seats." The most recent: "Gucci brings back the Jackie bag for fall 2011, with a long detachable strap." For more of her of-the-moment bon mots, follow her Twitter feed @booth1.

-- From the famous offspring department: Apparently, Ozzy Osbourne's daughter Kelly has been tapped to be the new face of Material Girl, the exclusive-to-Macy's apparel line by Madonna and her daughter Lourdes Leon.
