A Celebrity Moment: Nicole Richie in BlackBook

I'm not sure why they didn't just get Lady Gaga for the cover of their music issue but...

Marc Jacobs Engaged!


WWD is reporting the very happy news that Marc Jacobs is engaged to Brazilian ad-executive Lorenzo Martone!
Marc is opening a multi-brand store in Sao Paolo this week and the couple is expected to turn up with matching engagement rings at the party!
I wonder what Jason Preston thinks of all this?

Britney in Boston!

I didn't get to go to Britney's show in Boston last night.
It made me want to cry a little bit.
But the amazing (and always stylish) Jeanine Heller had great seats and sweetly sent me photos via her blackberry!
Check them out!

We all need some sparkle tights, ya'll! You think I'm mocking her but I'm not. I love Britney. And I love sparkle tights.

<span class=

A few shows ago Britney had a bit of an infamous wardrobe malfunction in a gold, gladiator-esque leotard which has now apparently been replaced by this simple, but just as sexy, black one!

Boy don't try to front! Britney will arrest you!

Louis Vuitton Fall/Winter 09

I know I'm super late with LV (and that I skipped way too many shows this season!) but here are some of my favorite looks from the show.
I'm too lazy to do a real review.
Sorry.

A Celebrity Moment: MK at The Metropolitan Opera's 125th Anniversary Gala

I know a lot of people are not going to like this look. I've read a lot of vampire cracks. But the thing I like about Mary-Kate is that she isn't afraid of trying new things and she rocks them with confidence even if they don't really work.
She wore her usual red carpet garb-kimono style gown with a cinched waist and lots of jewelry. But the big, styled hair is a huge departure from her usual limp, messy look and the bright red lipstick (while not the best choice with such heavy eye makeup) was a welcome change from the paler than pale nude she normally opts for.
So did it work? Maybe not. But at least she doesn't look like everyone else.

<span class=

MK has been traveling a lot lately. She's back in New York despite just landing at LAX a few days ago in the perfect travel outfit.

<span class=

Chic but comfortable. And I'm obsessed with her carry-on plus I love that she actually keeps and re-wears pieces unlike some spoiled celebs--she's worn that scarf for years and she's barely taken those Stella McCartney heels off in weeks!

A Celebrity Moment: Mila Jovovich at Chanel


Love the actual outfit and how it is styled but I hate it on her. If that makes sense. It's too young and sweet for such a powerful woman and her face...I don't know. Something just doesn't work. What do you think?

A Model Moment: Natasha Poly Leaving Chanel

Chanel Fall 09

Karl Lagerfeld's Fall 09 collection for Chanel was a love letter to everything that made the line so iconic: suits, bags, and little black dresses. While it wasn't his best work, or anywhere close to being the best Chanel collection, it was light and fun and all about the accessories that probably bring in the majority of the house's revenue.
I didn't like the Lucite bags (I don't need the world seeing what I'm carrying) but they did have specific spaces for all your Chanel goodies (sunglasses, I-pod, lipstick, etc) making it the ultimate piece for all you label whores.
While looks for day were all about over embellishments with chunky knits and some interesting (but in my opinion great) color choices of green and pink to compliment the beautiful jade jewelry that the girls wore in abundance, Uncle Karl kept it discreet with simple, spare black dresses for evening.
Oh and you know I'll be obsessing over the mint green nail polish when it hits stores in a few months.

A Model Moment: Caroline Trentini at YSL

Because we all need a leather bustier/bathing suit.
Especially after having seen Caroline Trentini look like wonder woman in it.

Viktor & Rolf Fall 2009


Classical marble statues walked the runway at Victor & Rolf. Even the clothing seemed to be chiseled from stone. It may not have been wearable but was oh so beautiful.
Delicious.

Happy Birthday Barbie!

Happy 50th Birthday Barbie!
I know we haven't always seen eye to eye (I'm really sorry about the whole hair cutting incident of '89 and all those times I carried you by your feet and let your head bang against every wall) but you're a fashion icon who is intelligent, successful, kind, and beautiful so happy birthday!
BTW in honor of your big celebration Target is selling a limited-edition Barbie for only $3 because that is how much you cost when you first hit the scene!

Jean Paul Gaultier F/W 2009!


What do you get when you cross nineties grunge with forties pin ups? Jean Paul Gaultier's Fall 2009 collection!
It's not really a surprise that I would love this since it includes all of my favorite things: masks, hoods, furs, boots and drinks!
Theatrics ensued with a (planned) cat fight between Coco Rocha and another model that only ended when a dominatrix cracked her whip! Between models attacking, PETA protesting outside, and alcohol on the runway you might think that there wasn't much room for amazing clothing. But you'd be very wrong.
Bondage was a clear theme throughout the collection like with the hooded trench coats, and the harness straps decorating cocktail dresses and X motifs on everything from silk shifts to kimono-esque gowns. The best part of the collection were Gaultier's androgynous but very wearable suits. And while sexuality was evident it was never over the top or cheap.
Sublime!
