Kate Middleton and Pippa Middleton; wedding dress by Alexander McQueen's creative director Sarah Burton

The lovely wedding dress Alexander McQueen's creative director Sarah Burton designed for the Duchess of Cambridge has been nominated for a prestigious British design award. It is one of two McQueen nominations in the London Design Museum's Designs of the Year competition. "Savage Beauty," the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art's retrospective on the late McQueen's work, is also in contention. [Telegraph]

Lindsay Lohan has been busy (and we hope staying out of legal trouble since she stands a chance of being off probation by next month, as we previously reported). She modeled for German label Philipp Plein's spring ad campaign and the ads debuted this week. She's also on the January cover of Maxim and, of course, the February cover of Playboy, as we've also reported. [The Cut]

When "The Hunger Games" hits the big screen in March, be sure to pay attention to the hair colors. Lead colorist Cherry Petenbrink had to come up with fanciful colors for the cast, including 500 extras. There are blue ponytails and pink curls and other rainbow hues. She predicts we'll see a trend. I predict she's right. [Beauty High]

This week, the Calvin Klein Collection and the Peggy Siegal Co. threw a party in New York for "Glee" star Darren Criss, in town to replace Daniel Radcliffe in "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying" for a few weeks. [WWD]

Speaking of Calvin, Calvin Klein Underwear has teamed up with celebrity stylist Annabel Tollman to create three videos for its Naked Glamour collection, showing how she creates the right look for different scenarios. [WWD]
