TRUFFLES OF NEWS:
♥ @Grazia_live took this picture at the Dior Spring Summer 2010 haute couture fashion show, this last Monday, January 25th, 2010 and twitter to Grazia readers worldwide: “not happy to watch couture through 13 year old Tavi’s hat”. Tavi defended herself on her blog saying: “I had no intentions of blocking the views of people behind me but it didn’t block any views-I’m SHORT, so watching the show behind me would be like watching it through a regular-sized adult, but better, because adult heads do not have holes in them. Other than the stinky cheese man, from that one book, from like, second grade, or something. My dad was sitting next to the Grazia writer that tweeted this picture and said there shouldn’t have been any problems in seeing the clothes, but I’m pretty sure she or he was joking, anyway?”.

♥ Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen announced Tuesday that they’ll be putting on their first-ever fashion show next month, but that isn’t their only big story this week. The Row’s new Web site went live today. Created in collaboration with Matthew Daniel Siskin of designedmemory, the interactive design studio behind Chris Benz, Genevieve Jones, and Albertus Swanepoel’s sites, the new therow.com is as subtly cool as one of the designer sisters’ $250 Supima cotton jersey short-sleeved T-shirts. In fact, the site’s different backgrounds are full-frame images of fabrics from the collection. It’s not set up for e-commerce just yet, but the Olsens assure us that it will be by late summer, in time to sell their Fall collection. MK and Ashley get techy with us below. – Style.com
