- Seems like Halston‘s president and chief creative office, Sarah Jessica Parker could see the brand Carrie’d away [badoom-cha!] to a new home. They’ve hired an investment bank to decide whether an infusion of cash or perhaps a complete sale of the company is in order after a lackluster four years under Hilco Consumer Capital and The Weinstein Co. [WWD]

- Dov Charney no longer holds the majority share in American Apparel after an influx of cash last week from a group of Canadian funders, including private investor Michael Serruya. Unlike everyone else in the world, Serruya has confidence in the American Apparel brand and in Dov Charney, whom he thinks is the victim of a “shakedown,” in reference to that whole sex slave thing.

FASHION SCRAMBLE: Halstons Finances Halted + Dov Loses Majority Stake in AA +Taking Royal Wedding Madness to the Extreme

- Are your alarms set? Are your puffy-sleeved gowns steamed and at the ready? The Royal Wedding is tomorrow, meaning that people might stop doing creepy things like tattooing their front teeth with Prince William‘s and Kate Middelton‘s likenesses, or spending 490 bucks (or three easy payments of 163 bucks)  for a vinyl doll bearing the Issa engagement dress seen round the world (as soon as that wedding dress debuts, however, that doll is getting an upgrade). But there’s perhaps nothing creepier– or…classier? —  than slipping on some royally-inspired latex to get it on in the boudoir. Though for $13, I’d expect more than three lousy Will and Kate Jimmyhats — I’m ready to consummate all over that couple. [Fashionista]
