Kim Kardashian and her younger sisters, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, are rumored to have cameos in Ocean’s Eight, an all-female spinoff of the Ocean’s trilogy. The Gary Ross-helmed film tells the tale of a jewelry heist at fashion’s biggest event of the year: The Met Gala. Although it’s unclear how involved the reality star will be in the movie, her decision to take part in a heist film doesn’t seem like an ideal way to recover from her own traumatic robbery in Paris. Anna Wintour also is rumored to be making an appearance in the film, which stars Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway and Sandra Bullock.

Burberry's Holiday Sales Beat Expectations [Bloomberg]
While several retailers reported lower than expected holiday sales (including Macys and Sears, both of which announced massive store closures and layoffs after holiday sales failed to give them the boost they hoped for), Burberry beat expectations. The brand reported a 4 percent increase in retail revenue during the third quarter, which bested analysts' prediction of a 3 percent rise; the company's stock subsequently rose 1.6 percent on Wednesday morning. The British fashion house says that the boost is in part due to the lowered pound, and noted that their handbag category performed especially well.

On the subject of wedding thank-you’s, how do you deal with guests not even giving a gift at all? Our daughter just got married, and we hosted a lovely reception. Numerous relatives (and their plus-ones) traveled in from out of town. They even stayed at our home for a long weekend of celebration. When the bride and groom opened their gifts, only two couples out of the group of 12 gave a gift. Not a thing from the others, not even a card! This summer, they came to this new bride’s shower and gave gifts.
In the past, this group of cousins has come to other weddings, graduation parties, etc., without gifts. One family member asked after one of the weddings (in case the gift had gotten lost or stolen), and they showed up the next day with a gift. They are not destitute, nor are they social misfits. Should we bring it up or just write them off for the next family event?

DEAR FAMILY MATTERS: I have to say, I love the “Oh, did your gift get stolen?” and then poof! Magically a gift arrives.
A lot of this is cultural, I believe. Some families teach their children to take gifts when going to someone’s home, for a big celebration and to always write a thank-you note, etc. Some families, on the other hand, don’t make these niceties a part of their daily lives.
So, what can you really do? It seems petty to me to not invite people just because they don’t bring a gift. If you really like them, you may have to look beyond this. On the other hand, if you do decide to write them off and not invite them to family events and they call you asking why — well, you may have to have a very awkward conversation. Practice it with someone, and if it feels petty when you say it out loud, just invite them. Better to have everyone together than exclude a few because they have poor manners. (Besides, you can always feel superior inside, which is a fun game relatives love to do with one another.)
Natalie’s Networking Tip: Speak your truth. If you want something, whether it is a promotion, a new job or new opportunities, they come to those who openly talk about them. The first step to anything is putting out feelers to your network. You’ve been building relationships. Now tap into them!

Taylor Swift has big plans for her hometown. Chart-topping pop star Taylor Swift plans to turn her home into a local landmark. The 27-year-old singer is reportedly spending millions in a bid to restore the former estate of Hollywood producer Samuel Goldwyn to its original condition. Taylor has drafted in a team of architects to ensure that the 11,000-square-foot house looks exactly as it did in 1934, having acquired the property for $25 million a year ago, according to the New York Post newspaper. Last week, the ‘Shake It Off’ singer received permission from the members of the Beverly Hills Cultural Heritage Commission to turn the property into a local landmark for its connection to Goldwyn, who was the founding contributor and executive of several Hollywood film studios. Taylor is also the owner of a penthouse in Tribeca, New York City, which she bought off ‘Lord of the Rings’ director Peter Jackson.
The property is rumoured to have cost the blonde beauty $19.95 million and is made up of two large penthouse apartments combined. The abode features seven bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms, but fans have only ever been given a glimpse of the property through Taylor’s Instagram. In one photograph, for instance, Taylor can be seen playing pool with her friends at home, while she’s also posted several pictures of herself cooking and relaxing at her apartment. The spectacular penthouse is guarded by a former NYPD officer and Taylor had previously revealed that her security team stays in a $5 million apartment across the hall from her. She revealed, too, that one of the guest bedrooms is reserved specifically for model Karlie Kloss, who is a frequent guest. In fact, a basket of Karlie’s favourite Whole Foods treats are kept next to the bed, and there are also multiple photos of her on the walls.
