Versace H&M

Jessica Alba, Chloe Moretz, Coco Rocha, and Blake Lively

  • True to the brand, Versace‘s launch party/fashion show for their collaboration with H&M was decked out in an equal measure of fluoro and black.

    Who did you think looked best on the red carpet out of those above? (Tell me on Facebook, then take a look at the campaign video below!)

    Do werk, Donatellla.

  • Attention, Little Monsters! Though celebrity perfumes are a dime a dozen, you are probably going to flip your lid over Lady Gaga’s (now that it doesn’t smell like “blood and semen”).

    In her own words,

    “I wanted to extract sort of the feeling and sense of blood and semen from molecular structures, so that’s where [the rumours] came from, and that is in the perfume but it doesn’t smell like that”.

    Coming soon to a cosmetics counter near you, the appropriately titled: MONSTER!

  • Recently, everyone’s favourite fashion designer, Alber Elbaz, announced that he has been working on a book. In a process which I hope will be similar to the Kenzo book, he has confirmed that he will be detailing the intricate practices that a Lanvin collection undergoes.

    The 700-page book (though some pages are left blank, as “that is how I start every day”) will be released early 2012.

  • Kelly Osbourne has been confirmed as a judge on Britain and Ireland’s Next Top Model for their next season! (Non-UK disclaimer: Despite the lengthy name, it is actually only one show).

  • I am super excited (and slightly confused) about this next piece of news! Stefano Tonchi (Editor in Chief of W), Amy Astley (Editor in Chief of Teen Vogue), and Brandon Holley (Editor in Chief of Lucky), are reported to be starring – as themselves – in “Jane by Design“, a new ABC family show which premieres January 2012. Premise? A teenager (presumably “Jane”) is mistaken for an adult and therefore lands a job at a fashion house.

  • Nicole Richie has been named “Influencer of the Year” by The Accessories Council, thanks to her against-all-odds accessories line, House of Harlow 1960. She is also working on a “very hands on” clothing line for QVC!

  • Isaac Mizrahi and Jean Paul Gaultier are both launching eyewear collections.
  • Chloe Moretz Interview

    Chloe Moretz

  • Unlike the rest of us, Chloe Moretz is a 14-year-old girl not only on the cover of Interview magazine’s November 2011 issue, but the interviewee of a Drew Barrymore question session on the inside pages. Hide your green eyes, girlfriend.

    BARRYMORE: Okay, magic wand time. Fantasy clothes by any designer made especially for you right now. Go.
    MORETZ: Oh, no! It’s like a ball gown or something amazingly huge and beautiful. It would probably have to be either, like, Valentino or Oscar de la Renta. And then if it was something beautiful that Audrey Hepburn might wear—you know, just perfect and cute and special—it would probably be either Givenchy or Chanel. And if it was crazy—like, amazingly psychotic—it would have to be Vivienne Westwood.

  • Are you 27 to 50 and simply devastated to be outside of Madonna‘s clothing customer base? Well, forget “Material Girl” – Generation X will soon be presented with “Truth or Dare by Madonna”. As a collaboration with licensing giant Iconix Brand Group; “Truth or Dare” will begin their 2012 launch with fragrance, then follow up with footwear, handbags, and cone bras…- I mean underwear.

  • Most people with an interest in the fashion industry tend to worship the late Lee Alexander McQueen (with all reason). His designs were inspired, technique flawless, and dedication unparalleled – making it all the more interesting that he drew reference points from Joey Tribbiani. In a recent interview, McQueen’s phenomenal ‘new’ creative director, Sarah Burton, recalls “I remember him saying to me, ‘I watched Friends last night, did you see the shirt that Joey was wearing?’ […] but then, he would get a Van Eyck book out, so it was this kind of mad mix. There’s no snobbery to it.”

  • Have a spare £60,000 lying around? Great! The dress worn by Audrey Hepburn at the Oscars in 1954 (Audrey fans will recall that this is when she won her Academy Award for Roman Holiday) is going up for auction! The dress was originally designed to resemble an outfit that costume designer – Edith Head – made for Hepburn’s character in the movie, and Kerry Taylor Auctions (the same auction house which sold Kate Middleton’s infamous fashion show dress) will sell the dress November 29th for an expected £60,000.

  • Last week, (…the man, the machine…) Tom Ford made a personal appearance at Bergdorf Goodman in New York City to promote his new cosmetics line. Reports have come in saying that he managed to reel in $52,000 in sales on that night alone, with “Bitter Bitch” – a chocolate coloured nail polish – being the first item to sell out completely.

  • Congratulations, Oscar de la Renta! The Couture Council of The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology have decided to honour the fashion genius with their Artistry of Fashion award.
  • Scorsese Kate Bosworth

    Kate Bosworth

    “I want to get away with you…and…find a world where words like that don’t exist.”

    Harper’s Bazaar has decided to celebrate Martin Scorsese‘s latest film, Hugo, with a fashionable recast of some of his best movies and the most poignant scenes in them. The casting is impeccable, and the photography – courtesy of Jason Schmidt – is faultless.

    First off? Kate Bosworth (in pearl-clutching Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci!) in “The Age of Innocence“.
