OK, Anna Dello Russo: we get it. You owe it all to the bloggers! But surely you're not really getting Scott Shuman a bespoke Brioni suit this holiday season---or are you? Or his girlfriend, Garance, Dolce & Gabbana beauty products "to make her even prettier"? C'est vrai: the debt is big, but vraiment...

Through sheer conviction, she makes the defiant-dying-girl tearjerking clichés work.") Her fashion cred: equally upheld, thanks to the Dolce & Gabbana floral cocktail frock she sported to the IFP's 20th Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards on November 29, 2010. Has she finally moved on from Chanel?
