Memo Pad: Oprah Meets Ralph Lauren... Conde Nast Spain, El Pais Team Up...

With the end of her farewell season just days away, Oprah Winfrey secured herself a particularly fashionable and rare television interview — Ralph Lauren.

CHAIN REACTION: It looks like Michelle Obama is not the only first lady shopping at H&M. French weekly Voici stoked rumors that Carla Bruni-Sarkozy is pregnant with a report saying she spent 300 euros, or $423.50 at current exchange, on maternity clothes at a Paris branch of the popular Swedish high street chain. H&M declined to confirm or deny the story. “We don’t usually comment on the private lives of our customers,” a spokeswoman for H&M in France said cryptically. Though Bruni-Sarkozy has kept mum so far, local advertisers have already started to capitalize on rumors she will be giving birth to twins next fall. Car rental firm Sixt has run an ad with the tag line: “Dear Mrs Bruni, will you be needing a station wagon?” while, an e-commerce site aimed at pregnant women, ran with: “So Carla, craving strawberries?”
