Madness at H&M, More on Barack

Did you attempt to get your hands on some Comme des Garçons for H&M today? You're braver than us. [Racked]
Cathy Horyn provides a clear-eyed assessment of Barack Obama's sartorial style, pointing out that "his jeans are the loose, jingle-the-change-in-your-pocket type. He belts them at the waist, and when he wears them with white sneakers and a windbreaker, one could almost say he had stolen the look from Jerry Seinfeld's character on the television series." [NYT]
At Diane von Furstenberg's party for Financial Times editor Vanessa Friedman, André Leon Talley broadcast his delight over Obama's victory in the most appropriate way: The back of his coat was emblazoned with "The New American Dream" in crystals. [WWD]
Also gushing about the Obamas? Donna Karan, who says: "I'm hoping to get to work with them—it would be my dream. They are so committed to ideals that are much in alignment with mine." [WWD]

The first clip from Stylecaster's new short film series stars Jessica Joffe, who we see shedding layers of clothing and stealing a necklace as she walks to meet a square-jawed himbo. [Adweek]
The choice of Pamela Anderson for a Vivienne Westwood campaign would seem strange, if it weren't for the fact that Westwood is PETA-approved. [The Cut]
Diddy has rather high hopes for his new fragrance, "I Am King." He says he hopes it "will resonate with the same consumers who voted for Barack Obama." [WSJ]
Designer Anand Jon was convicted of rape today and now faces a possible life sentence. [WWD]
