FSB Morning Juice – Anne Hathaway, R.I.P. Mike and Chris, Tiffany’s and Conde Nast Musical Chairs

Morning! We’re up, rooibos tea in hand, ready to get this party started. Here are the headlines for this morning:

The Devil Does Jazz Hands: Anne Hathaway is set to star in a biopic about the late, great Judy Garland. Wonder if the ruby slippers will be Prada? (

Retailer R.I.P.: Fabulous leather line Mike and Chris is no more. Somewhere, the Gossip Girl cast is probably crying. (eye4style)

A Lipstick Stimulus Package? In a sure sign of rough economic times, beauty sales were down 3 percent in 2008. Remember that old adage that even in the worst times a woman will still want to buy lipstick? Sounds like those days might be over. (WWD)

No More Breakfast at Tiffany’s?: Tiffany and Co. reported extremely disappointing numbers in 2008, with a near disastrous net income drop of 76 percent with total sales dropping 20 percent worldwide in the fourth quarter alone. Evidently, in this economy those who had the “Return to Tiffany’s” items actually did just that. (Luxist)

Conde Nast Musical Chairs: Ingrid Sichy and Sandra Brant are now the new Editors-In-Chief of German Vogue and Russian Vogue, respectively. Carine Roitfeld remains fabulously at the helm of French Vogue and Anna Wintour is still firmly entrenched at American Vogue, so in our eyes all is right with the world. (Fashion Week Daily)
