Spice Girl, who? Victoria Beckham was among the nominees announced Tuesday by the British Fashion Council for its annual awards. The designer is up for favorite brand and red-carpet designer along with Burberry and Alexander McQueen. Not too shabby.

More than 300 industry insiders choose the winners, who will be announced Dec. 2 at a ceremony at the London Coliseum. The Beckhams are expected to attend, and hopefully they’ll get a driver for the occasion. Soccer god David Beckham was involved in a car crash outside his Beverly Hills home last week. Police were reportedly called after the athlete’s Range Rover Sport struck a SUV driven by an unidentified woman as he pulled out of his driveway.

JoBros no more

Strike The Jonas Brothers from your lexicon. Nick, Joe and Kevin announced Tuesday they’re ending their highly successful run. The news comes after the New Jersey trio abruptly canceled their tour over creative differences earlier this month. They told People the breakup was unanimous and came after Nick Jonas told his brothers in a meeting earlier this month that he felt “trapped.” They had been scheduled to release its fifth album later this year.

In other music news, country legend Loretta Lynn, 81, postponed two shows in Iowa due to exhaustion. Last year, the Coal Miner’s Daughter postponed shows to undergo physical therapy following total knee replacement surgery.


Ciao for now, Snooki! Dressed as a zombie for the Halloween edition of Dancing with the Stars, the miniature reality star left the ballroom in tears after being cast out. “I can’t even talk right now,” Snooks said. “I love everybody here, so it sucks.”

    What’s trending for Throwback Thursday/Flashback Friday: Selena Gomez and her Emmys jumpsuit

    Surprise, surprise: Selena Gomez was all smiles Sunday night at Variety’s pre-Emmys party. It was refreshing to see the sometimes-glum singer-actress actually looking happy for a change. Maybe the upbeat red silk jumpsuit Gomez had on lifted her spirits and took her mind off her wayward ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber. The high-neck, long-sleeve vintage-y get-up was a nice change from all the skin and cleavage exposed around town.
