Glitter mouse pumps, £228, Marc by Marc Jacobs at Matches vs. velvet Kitty pumps, £485, Charlotte Olympia

Its a tricky game of cat and mouse when it comes to deciding between two of the most covetable pieces of footwear to buy this season - so we thought we'd  break it down. We first spotted the adorable Charlotte Olympia Kitty flats last year when we drooled over them all winter through to this summer when they were confirmed as a carry through style to be produced each season -yay! Available in classic black and red velvet, in a summery espadrille style for SS12 and in a key new colour for each season going forward, the feline flats have been causing a websites to crash and stores to instantly sell out...

...but we then noticed a pair of twinkly Glitter mouse pumps by Marc by Marc Jacobs that had just landed in store at Matches, and from there our dilemma began. Even superstar songstress Beyonce couldnt decide between the two so she chose a super cute matching ensemble with her two month-old daugther Blue Ivy. Taking a stroll in the Big Apple, her outfit consisted of a dusty pink blazer over a baggy shirt with rolled-up jeans where both she and Blue were wearing matching pumps. While Mummy B followed in the fashionable footsteps of Alexa Chung with Charlotte Olympia's leopard-print kitty flats, Daughter B was sporting a pair of diddy mouse slippers by Little Marc Jacobs. Too cute! Baby B's animal flats have been so poplular that Selfridges London have dedicated an entire pop-up store to the adorable pumps.

    The Lotus breadvan: Flickr photo of the day

    The Lotus Europa was one of the stranger sports cars of the '70s, but still managed to corner like a sheepdog thanks to its low weight and fiberglass body. This example caught by Dave Lindsay is fairly typical of the nicer early '70s Type 62 Europas Lotus exported to the United States; by today's standards they're odd, underpowered and unreliable — which means they have a fervent fan base.

    Inside MotoGP, elbow on asphalt at 210 mph

    In MotoGP, a most strange sport, compact, highly fit men, most of them Spanish, Italian, Japanese, or Australian, maneuver 350-lb., multimillion-dollar motorcycles around Formula One tracks at 220 mph while wearing computerized suits that inflate when they fall off at speed. It feels as though you’re watching Tron live, and the crashes are just as spectacular. Driving these things requires a lot of nerve, as well as generous levels of Euro-style machismo. The riders of MotoGP can’t walk down the street in Barcelona or Milan without being followed by screaming fans. They’re like some sort of unholy marriage between Daft Punk and Apollo astronauts. In the United States, they’re just guys walking down the street.

    Pirates kidnap three on Singapore tanker off Malaysia

    Armed pirates boarded a Singapore-managed oil tanker in the Strait of Malacca, kidnapping three Indonesian crew and stealing some of the vessel's shipment of diesel fuel, the International Maritime Bureau said Wednesday.
