BERRY BONDS: When Pierce Brosnan’s OO7 first catches sight of Halle Berry’s Jinx in the latest James Bond serial, "Die Another Day," hitting theaters Nov. 22, she’ll be dripping in Swarovski crystals and a fur coat courtesy of Bond fan Donatella Versace.
The midriff-baring evening set in violet "is an amazing color on her," said the Platinum One, who released the sketch Thursday. Versace also created leather looks for Berry, the best fabric, she says, for "the modern femme-fatale spy." Spy stuff notwithstanding, the fiercely fabulous Versace certainly knows a thing or two about the rest.
DOWN THE TUBES? Has VH1 already pulled the plug on its "Life With Liza and David" show? According to sources, VH1 has killed the much-ballyhooed show because it couldn’t get along with David Gest, Liza Minnelli’s new husband. There were apparently too many disagreements with him.
The show was expected to follow Minnelli and Gest as they hosted intimate dinner parties with an eclectic mix of celebrity friends, actors, musicians and athletes in their Manhattan penthouse, along with musical performances.
However, some of the stars that were slated to appear on the show, such as Natalie Cole, were of a different generation than the VH1 viewer. "It was meant to be hipper and cooler, and they were hoping for a clash of cultures," said one source.
A spokeswoman for VH1 said, "That is a rumor. That is false. It’s going to be premiering in January. We don’t have a start date yet."
TEEN TALK: Justin Timberlake will headline Teen People’s "What’s Next" event Nov. 5 at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York. Other stars that will perform are April Lavigne, R&B singer Mario, rapper Cam’ron and dance trio Dirty Vegas.
For the entire month of November and December, AOL Music and TeenPeople.com will showcase Teen People’s "What’s Next" music stars online. "What’s Next" is sponsored by Coca-Cola.

@imanshumpert is diving deeper into his creative endeavors and relaunching his clothing line, Post 90s, and is helping to raise money for the hurricane victims in St. Maarten with a jersey he’s designed with his brother. The Cleveland Cavaliers player talked to WWD about kneeling during the national anthem, working with fashion brands and how he wants to be more than an @nba player.

Not only does #TheProfit return to CNBC tonight, but @marcuslemonis has launched @shopmarcus, a new shopping and lifestyle retail experience in Aspen and Chicago, with more locations to come. The retail stores offer in-store stylists and a variety of contemporary womenswear selections.
“It’s life, I’m going to face it,” @mingxi11 sighed. “I fell, but you know, I think the most important thing is that I get back up. I had the love, the help from my sister — the girl next to me Gizele [Oliveira] — she’s so nice. When I went backstage everybody was trying to comfort me like ‘Oh Ming, it’s OK.’ I’m really, really touched. I think it’s them who gave me the courage to go back on stage for the finale,” Xi told WWD of her fall at the @victoriassecret fashion show.

@louisvuitton tapped @therealpeterlindbergh for its latest city-centric photo book, which is part of a series called Fashion Eye. The primarily black and white book captures the spirit of Berlin in 57 images shot between 1989 and 2019. “Berlin is an inspiration for me, more than a city. I mean @millajovovich is simply Berlin!” said Lindbergh. #wwdfashion
“You know, I think audiences expect a certain performance so I have to deliver to them what they’re expecting to a certain degree. But I’m also a different actor and a different person, I have my own spin on the character,” says @noahegalvin of his takeover of the leading role in “Dear Evan Hansen” following the departure of @bensplatt, who originated the role.

@kith is moving into children’s. The men’s and women’s streetwear brand has launched Kidset, a Kith kids line located in New York at 64 Bleecker Street. The line includes mini versions of staple Kith pieces like the Astor bomber jacket and the Kith box logo sweatshirts, along with a wall that can display up to 120 pairs of shoes from @adidas, @newbalance, @timberland and more. #wwdfashion
“I just wanted to create this fully rounded character, but I do think what excited me most was just the opportunity to give a group of people representation that I feel needs it. I like to do characters in projects that stand for something and Karolina definitely does, so that was really exciting to me,” @ginnygardner says of her new role in @hulu’s “The Runaways.” Gardner plays Karolina Dean, a queer superhero, which is a rarity for @marvel.
