Pippa’s Prowess Continues. In a fitting tribute to Pippa’s whirlwind year, Barbara Walters will include the younger Middleton sister as part of her annual “Most Fascinating People” of the year special, set to air Dec. 14 on ABC. Since her appearance at April 29’s royal wedding, Pippa has been the subject of a TLC special, been courted by Usher to model for his lingerie line and inspired a number of knockoff versions of her Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen bridesmaid dress. And earlier this week, Alexander McQueen released a nearly $2,000 version of the famous gown, which—surprise!—sold out within hours. [New York Post]

Michael Jackson’s Hair for Sale.

The strands are expected to fetch $5,000, however. Elsewhere in auctions of items that belonged to deceased musicians, the dress Amy Winehouse wore on the cover of her Back to Black album sold for nearly $67,000, with proceeds going to her foundation.
