A model wears a creation by French Fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier as part of his presentation for Women's Spring Summer 2012 Haute Couture fashion collection presented in Paris, Wednesday, Jan. 25 2012.

Downton Abbey Jewelry Pulled. PBS has removed its jewelry collection inspired by the series from its website over objections from the show’s U.K. producers, who were reportedly upset that they weren’t seeing any profits from the unauthorized pieces. [The Look]

Winehouse Family Upset by Gaultier Show. Designer Jean Paul Gaultier, famous for outfitting Madonna in cone-shaped bustiers, paid tribute to the late Amy Winehouse during his Wednesday fashion show when he sent models down the runway in heavy eyeliner and beehive hairstyles. Models also wore black veils during the show’s finale. The homage didn’t impress Winehouse’s father, Mitch, who said it was done “in bad taste.”  [Press Association]

Victoria’s Secret Goes Upscale. On Tuesday, the lingerie retailer launched a new designer collection that features more refined versions of their bras, undies and sleepwear made with materials including lace and chiffon. Panties begin at $38, while bras range from $98-$158. [Fashionista]

Millers Leave Twenty8Twelve. Sisters Savannah and Sienna Miller are parting ways with their label Twenty8Twelve after a six-year run as creative directors. Though the line will carry on, it’s hard to imagine how it can do so successfully when the sisters have been so ingrained in the brand from the beginning. The label even took its name from Sienna’s birthday, December 28.  [Daily Mail]

Behold, a 110-Pound Dress. Dare we say this gown, from Stephane Rolland’s new haute couture collection, probably weighs more than the model wearing it? [The Cut]
