• Spice Girls fans, rejoice! Scary, Sporty, Posh, Ginger and Baby are auctioning off some of their most iconic looks for your nostalgic pleasure. It’s for a good cause, too.

Conflicting rumors have abounded recently that Jessica Simpson is planning her own line of wedding gowns, yet again expanding her billion-dollar fashion empire.  However, E! reports that a spokesperson for Simpson has denied the claims and that Simpson is not planning a bridal line at the moment.

• Lil Wayne’s Trukfit line is all about embracing the hard-knock skating life, so it made for a harmonious inclusion at this year’s extreme sports X Games. The rapper/mogul held court with fans and gave away Trukfit merchandise to eager onlookers. Global viewers were able to livestream the event.

• Lady Gaga hasn’t worn this wondrously weird creation yet, but is it only a matter of time? A truly wild Alexander McQueen-aping gown made of 50,000 Gummy Bears is making headlines around the sartorial world, with gadflys placing bets on the chances of it eventually ending up in Gaga’s wardrobe. After all, she did just spend $130,000 on Isabella Blow’s custom McQueen gown.
