Fashion News: Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady might be expecting

Tom Brady, Gisele Bundchen
Rumor has it that supermodel Gisele Bundchen and quarterback husband Tom Brady are expecting a baby, which would be the second for the couple who have a 2-year-old son together. Brady also has a 4-year-old son from a prior relationship. The couple hasn't made an announcement, but a "source" confirms it, according to Us Weekly, and after all Bundchen has been seen wearing kind of loose tops lately (though not in this picture taken in May). [Us Weekly]

"Fifty Shades of Grey," the best-selling erotic book series, could spawn perfume, lingerie, maybe even bedding.  Author E.L. James has chosen a licensing agent to look into possible deals and make "Grey" a worldwide brand.  [The Hollywood Reporter]

First Lady Michelle Obama has popped up on Pinterest, the social media phenomenon that allows users to virtually pin up pictures of items that interest them organized on "boards." The three boards she's created so far are "Around the White House," "Great Memories" and "Father's Day," but we'd love to see her do one on her fashion picks too. [Los Angeles Times]

It's Full-Figure Fashion Week in NYC, the fourth year in a row of runway shows for curvier women put on by the likes of Michael Kors and Ralph Lauren, as well as some labels that specialize in plus sizes. [Styleite] 

These are rocky times for Esprit, whose chief executive Ronald Van der Vis, resigned Tuesday, followed Wednesday by chairman of the board Hans-Joachim Körber leaving and a stock plummet on the Hong Kong exchange. [WWD] (Subscription required.)

We knew all along that shoes are important. Now psychologists from the University of Kansas confirm it. The kind of shoes you choose offers clues to your personality. For instance, someone who wears glitzy, bedazzled shoes is an extrovert. Tidy, well-kept shoes indicate someone who is conscientious. Wait a minute. They had to do a study to figure this out?

Designer Narciso Rodriguez, favored by Michelle Obama, Julianna Margulies and Claire Danes, reportedly is working on a capsule collection for Kohl's. [WWD]
