Downtime? There's always Sudoku, but when you want to pass the time in style, may we suggest this Chinese puzzle by Gaia & Gino? It passes as a paperweight, but it's also a sleek little game: open the cube, and reveal the sparkling Swarovski crystal inside. Chic says your toys should be as glam as you are, n'est-ce pas?

A padded beige lambskin pouch insides means that you can store the tiniest of treasures without worrying about things slipping through the cracks.

It was arrivals day at Newark yesterday, as three flights from Paris (from Air France, OpenSkies, and Continental) landed at the airport practically at the same time---causing a major traffic jam at American passport control. Steven Gan, Cindy Weber Cleary, and Anne Christensen were just a few of the hundreds Chic spotted waiting to get their stamps. The only golden exceptions? Ingrid Sischy and Sandy Brant, who were escorted right to the front of control due to Brant's broken knee.

Fashion month is over, and with it, the ongoing "can you top this?" game of elaborate show invitations. Luckily, Land's End is keeping up efforts, sending editors wooden buoys as invites to their upcoming Spring 2011 press preview. Not one, but five of these babies landed over at Daily HQ recently, leading us to wonder just where, exactly, does Land's End get all these buoys? (And how much are they paying to ship them?)

Whoa! Could it be that someone is actually taking on Cathy Horyn? Just read this excerpt from Laura Brown's profile of Christina Hendricks in November Harper's Bazaar. Surely you remember when Horyn blogged about "pretty Christina Hendricks in Christian Siriano's exploding ruffle dress. (As one stylist said, ''You don't put a big girl in a big dress. That's rule number one.')"...

"To say something like that and put it next to a distorted picture discredits you entirely," Christina says. "And it hurt my feelings. I thought that dress was stunning. I stand by that dress to this day. I had just gotten back from my honeymoon, and I felt beautiful in those pictures. I was smiling and beaming, and I felt like a goddess. It's a celebration, and I'm here because the show I work on is being recognized as excellent work. And you're going to tell everyone in the world that I was wearing a shitty dress? Let me go to a party and wear my pretty dress!"
