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.
  • Kenzo PFW Runway
    Happy 40th birthday to Kenzo! The fantastic designer duo of Kenzo Takada and Antonio Marras showcased their Spring/Summer 2011 looks for Paris Fashion Week on a revolving stage at Cirque d’Hiver; a ‘music box with forty ballerinas‘ as far as press talk goes. In a quality display of East-meets-West fashion, a fairy tale collection worthy of Kabuki theatre celebrated one specific theme (out of forty) per outfit. Perfect, wearable garments from look one through forty. View Post

    Antonio Marras MFW Runway
    Love Kenzo? Love Antonio Marras. This is someone who pulls of romanticism so well you would think he invented it. What I loved in particular was his use of sportswear shapes on a very gentle archetypes. Lingerie accents were so well made they safely steered clear of any raunchy undertones. He closed with white paper butterflies, a themed trick so precise it made me want to reach through my laptop. A very powdery and innocent collection. View Post
