Soccer star David Beckham used his shoes as a vehicle to show off his fatherly pride during Sunday's L.A. Galaxy vs. Real Madrid match. His soccer cleats were emblazoned with the names of all four little Beckhams -- Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and new baby Harper -- in pink letters. [People] 

Ivanka Trump has a new bracelet out -- created before she gave birth to a baby girl over the weekend -- inspired by the movie "Snow Flower and Secret Fan." She collaborated with the movie’s producer, Wendi Deng Murdoch, to design a bracelet symbolizing friendship and sisterhood. It's available in black resin with white diamonds or white pearl resin with black diamonds, and is engraved with the Chinese character for friendship on the inside of the cuff. The pieces are available for $650 at Ivanka Trump Fine Jewelry boutiques or on her website. [People]

And now rumors are swirling that Halston will tap BCBG Max Azria with a raid on their executives. [WWD]

Lazaro Hernandez, co-designer at Proenza Schouler, spoke before Congress last week in support of legislation aimed at helping guard against designer knockoffs by stronger copyright enforcement. “The fashion industry is already a tough business and it is getting tougher because of piracy,” Hernandez told lawmakers.

Models Anja Rubik and Sasha Knezevic were married over the weekend  on the Spanish island of Mallorca. Rubik wore a short dress with a long train and cap sleeves designed by Peter Dundas for Pucci.  [Fashionologie]
