<li>Jean Paul Gaultier has been named to the nine-member panel of the Cannes Film Festival, alongside actors Ewan McGregor and Diane Kruger. Gaultier, a longtime film lover, will help the panel select the winner for the Palme d'Or, Cannes's biggest prize. "We have a tradition of inviting people who we know are cinephiles but who are not necessarily in cinema," said Cannes director Thierry Fremaux. [Vogue UK]
</ br></p> <li>Alexander Wang got name-checked in a recent song from South African group Die Antwoord — a fitting thank-you note after Wang cast the group in his T by Alexander Wang Spring 2012 campaign. On the track "Hey Sexy," lead vocalist Ninja raps, "I know how to get da dough, I know how to spend da dough/ Rockin' Alexander Wang from head-to-toe." [The Cut]
</ br></p> <li>Simon Doonan wants to know why people have lost their fascination with accomplishment. In a new column, Doonan compares society's past reverence for people like playwright Arthur Miller with the current verve for Kim Kardashian. "During the last century, consummate skill was HOT!" he writes. "Now it would appear to have become a giant turnoff." [Slate]
</ br></p> <li>Lara Stone's border terrier puppy Bert got his 15 minutes of fame this week when the model tweeted a picture of him wearing Mulberry's Doggy Kagool denim hoodie. "OMG! Mr Bert loves his new jean hoodie!" she wrote. "Thank you so much @Mulberry_Editor #TooCute." Too cute indeed. [Marie Claire UK]
