The latest social media updates from the fashion world:
@heatheretttte: GET YOUR FILTHY FINGERS OUTTA MY PIE
Supermodels Do Eat: It was barely 10 a.m and we were finishing up our healthy breakfast of fruit and Greek yogurt when we stumbled across this tweet from Daria Werbowy. @dar_werbowy: Strawberry ice cream with caramel sauce or hazelnut pie with vanilla? Are you jealous? Yeah, kinda.
@OscarPRGirl: Dear Diary, today Oscar said to me “you look good.”
In response to a story reported by the BBC in which a woman refused to let go of her Louis Vuitton handbag when a passenger in a car tried to steal and drive away with it, @DieselUSA tweeted: don’t want to see women die for status bags but, um, are we wrong to say “you go, girl?”
@derekblasberg: It looks horrific and it’s mildly irritating to have my vision obstructed, but I just realized I can totally work @JustinBeiber‘s hairstyle.
A Great Place Tibi In: Since launching their “Summer Giveaway Package” on May 3 with the goal of doubling the amount of “likes” it has on Facebook by June 15, Tibi’s gone from 2,394 “likes” on April 30 to 5,410 on June 15 – a 126 percent increase in just six weeks.
François Nars Favorite Things: NARS posted a photo album filled with the founder and creative director’s favorite items and the products they’ve inspired. The brand’s Kabuki Brushes were born from Nars’ love of all things Japanese –specifically Chawanmushi, which we bet you didn’t know was a steamed-egg custard dish.

Lucky.com’s blog, Lucky Right Now, has 15 Father’s Day gift ideas (courtesy of John Jannuzzi via Julia Frakes) that has every type of dad covered, whether he “Runs marathons twice a year (and is in better shape than his kids),” “Counts down the days until the weather is just right for sailing around Martha’s Vineyard,” “Has not gotten the memo that there is workout gear out there that doesn’t look straight out of the ’80s” or he “Seriously needs to rethink his “dad jeans.” It looks like the days of categorizing dads by “Tech Savvy,” “Movie Buff” and “Sports Enthusiast” are over.
