5 Things To Know This AM — Oct 11 2012

So, Alexa Chung's writing a book (sorry, Lena Dunham). And it will not be a “style bible,” no sir. Word is it’s going to be a compendium of text, photographs, and drawings not unlike Tavi's Rookie Yearbook One. (Fashionista)
Whoops! Kelly Cutrone set off the alarm at Urban Outfitters and subsequently got into a spat with UO employees. Cutrone’s tweet that the store has the “rudest staff in the world” set off a digital war of words between her and an employee. Cutrone is obviously a force to be reckoned with. (Racked NY)
Solange Knowles says she would never start her own clothing line (tear). She is, however, willing to collaborate with one of her designer friends: “I've been approached a few times. It’s really a matter of the timing being right. There's obviously a lot on my plate now, and my son is a high priority on my list.” Okay, fine, you win. For now. (The Cut)
Rebel Wilson has successfully pitched a comedy to Universal. The Australian comedian will write, produce, and star in this untitled project. If Bridesmaids and Pitch Perfect are in any way representative of her comedic chops (which, duh, they are), we're already prepared for hijinks and hilarity. (Vulture)
Couldn't score a ticket to Saint Laurent? Join the crowd. But you can live vicariously through Daft Punk’s 15-minute soundtrack from last week’s show. Their bluesy track will make you feel like you’re in the front row of this fashion season’s most eagerly awaited event. (Style MTV)
