Fashion News: Joan Rivers has more plastic surgery

January 26, 2012 |  8:42 am

Joan and Melissa Rivers
Joan Rivers had her 734th cosmetic procedure on the opening show of season two of "Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best?" -- and the number isn't a typo. Rivers, 78, has never made a secret that she's had a lot of work done, but that number, given on the WE television show, most likely includes things like Botox as well as surgery. [OC Register]

Juliette Lewis is not the woman having sex with famed fashion photographer Terry Richardson in a photo making the rounds on the Internet, her publicist says. Not sure what Richardson has to say about it. [CBS News]

In case you weren't convinced that Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's luxury clothing label The Row isn't the real deal, here's proof: They've hired Prada's president and chief executive François Kress to be their new president and CEO. [The Cut]

Victoria's Secret has launched its first high-end lingerie collection, The Victoria’s Secret Designer Collection -- think sheer chiffons, European lace, ribbon and embroidery. The collection appeared online and in five select stores this week but is to roll out more broadly in June. Prices range from about $38 for a garter belt to about $298 for a merry widow. [WWD]

Good news for shoppers: J.C. Penney is cutting all prices by at least 40% permanently and having fewer sales -- just some one-month specials and some bargain basement "best price" markdowns. All will be clearly labeled so consumers get everyday lower prices and less sales confusion. [Huffington Post]

Yasmin le Bon
Modeling haute couture isn't easy. The gown Yasmin Le Bon wore in the finale of the Stephane Rolland show in Paris on Tuesday was made of 147.5 feet of jersey and weighed 110 pounds -- probably as much as many a model. The two guys flanking her in the photo above were there to provide support, if necessary. [The Cut]

Retail buyers are heaping praise on the men's fall shows that wrapped up last week in Paris, saying the week was one of the strongest in years, with cohesive trends and solid styles. [WWD] (Subscription required.)

Actress Sienna Miller and her fashion designer sister Savannah are ending their association with Twenty8Twelve, the label they co-founded in 2007. The label will continue under the name Twenty8Twelve London -- just without the sisters' input. [Telegraph]
