* Roberto Cavalli has released an autobiography entitled "Just Me". He says of it “I screwed everybody over — I have been an amazing actor,” Cavalli confessed to WWD. “With this book, people will discover a Roberto Cavalli that you don’t expect, because the recital is over, so I take the stage and introduce the real me.” Sounds juicy.

*So everyone is going kind of nuts that Kate Moss landed the cover for the 60th anniversary of Playboy. Playbe said in their press release "You're talking about the face of Burberry, the biggest supermodel in the world on the cover of Playboy. She's the perfect partner for us to help launch the next 60 years…  It started with Marilyn Monroe on the cover of Playboy 60 years ago, an icon for her time. Now we've got Kate Moss!" OK so yeah its sort of cool that she is on the cover but Kate Moss naked is not earth shattering - a google search for just that phrase yieded about 41,900,000 results. We say just wait for an hour after the release and wait for the reposts.

* Shoe obsessed? Then you will love this book on art shoes! Jane Weltzman new book has over 150 spectacular shoes as art. Made from everything from feathers, paper, ceramic, metal, resin, playing cards, corrugated cardboard, Swarovski crystals, even fresh flowers and frosting. Art and Sole is fantasy land for the shoe lover.

* The Versace Mansion in Miami was sold VM South Beach LLC, a company affiliated with New York's Nakash family, which owns Jordache Enterprises, for $41.5 million. They already own a part-hotel right next door so it makes sense that it may become part of that. Joe Nakash, a spokesman for the family, said: "Everything will stay as it is. We'd like the public to use it, so we're going to create a hotel that will be consolidated with the Victor [the hotel next door]. We're going to use the name Versace after we receive the okay from the family,' Is that weird or cool? It has already been a private club and had a short stint as a hotel under its former owner so its not like its a new concept. We sort of wish the house of Versace had bought it back and made it a showcase ourselves but c'est la vie.
