Good news! The Presidential Debate Commission announced today that Candy Crowley of CNN will be the first woman to moderate a presidential debate in 20 years. Crowley is CNN’s chief political correspondent and anchors the hour-long show “State Of The Union.” She’ll moderate the second town hall meeting-style debate on October 16 at Hofstra Univeristy in NJ.  Crowley will join Jim Lehrer of PBS and Bob Schieffer of CBS in moderating one of three presidential debates; she’ll be the first woman to do so since Carole Simpson of ABC moderated a presidential debate in 1992. Another woman, Martha Raddatz of ABC, will moderate the vice presidential debate; Gwen Ifill of PBS moderated the VP debates in both 2004 and 2008.

I hope the Presidential Debate Commission was influenced by the three New Jersey 16-year-olds who started a Change.org petition  – which collected 130,000 signatures — to hire a female moderate. Congratulations, ladies! [Washington Post; Poynter.org]

Zut Alors, A Cute T-Shirt!

Driven to outbursts of “%&@#!” and “@#$*!” when you look at the prices on Kate Spade’s goodies? Me, too, sadly. But their new “Pardon My French” T-shirt will apologize for you in advance with trademark Gallic politesse. Parlez-vous “adorable” is more like it! [$58, Kate Spade]

Zig-A-Zig-Ah!

It finally happened: the Spice Girls reunited for Closing Ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics to sing a medley of “Wannabe” and “Spice Up Your Life” atop bling-covered black cabs. Everyone appears … well-preserved. Baby Spice Emma Bunton ditched the kinderwhore look of 1998 and looks decidedly more grown up in her hot pink dress. And it’s weird for me when Victoria Beckham doesn’t scowl. I hope that was worth the six months of being excited about it?!  [Vimeo]

Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux are engaged!

Theroux’s rep confirmed to People magazine today: “Justin Theroux had an amazing birthday on Friday, receiving an extraordinary gift when his girlfriend, Jennifer Aniston, accepted his proposal of marriage.”

These two have been rumored to be engaged for awhile. Huffington Post said Theroux proposed days after the pair were spotted vacationing in Hawaii; it’s unclear where the proposal happened. No word yet on what Jen’s ring looks like or where the wedding will be. Mazel tov, you two!

Squee! Garance Doré Designed For Kate Spade

Kate Spade has it out for me.

That is the only possible explanation why they could have hired Garance Doré, a French style blogger and photographer, to design pieces for their fall line. Doré’s whimsical doodles are all over dresses, bags, and even an umbrella and iPhone case. The prices are as WTF as Kate Spade prices usually are, but that Joie De Vivre shirt is so damn cute I might just go searching the couches for loose change.

Above, my favorite picks from the Garance Doré for Kate Spade line!
