Bieber handshake Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce were gushing over 17-year-old singing sensation Justin Bieber's sense of style at the party they threw for him at their restaurant, Gold, after his concert in Milan on Saturday night. "It might be slightly premature to talk about a style icon, but it's impossible to deny that he's a model for his peers," Dolce said. Of course, it doesn't hurt that Bieber often wears Dolce & Gabbana (at this year's Academy Awards and Golden Globes, for instance). [Telegraph]

Christian Louboutin filed a trademark infringement lawsuit in Manhattan federal court last week against Yves Saint Laurent America Inc., accusing YSL of stepping on its toes, so to speak, by selling shoes with red soles -- the hallmark of a pricey Louboutin heel. The suit seeks to stop the sales and more than $1 million in damages. [Telegraph]

There are certain beauty decisions you should always think through carefully instead of plunging right in. Tattoos and piercings, of course. But also hair color, brow shape and perfume, among others. [BellaSugar] 

Oscar de la Renta has rethought his original namesake fragrance, rejuvenating it for the modern woman. Esprit d'Oscar is a blend of Sicilian lemon, bergamot, citron, Egyptian jasmine, orange flower, tuberose, musk, heliotrope, tonka bean and vetiver. But it is less "powdery" -- powder evoking the scent of a grandma! [StyleList]
