Guinevere Van Seenus Miu Miu

Guinevere Van Seenus for Miu Miu

  • Looking good, Guinevere van Seenus! As you can probably tell, the ‘aged’ model has replaced 14-year-old actress Hailee Steinfeld as the face of Miu Miu. The upcoming resort ads were styled by Joe McKenna and lensed by David Sims.

  • Following in the footsteps of Giambattista Valli, Matthew Williamson, and Karl Lagerfeld, Macy’s has just tapped Doo-Ri Chung to be their next collaborator in the masstige market. His line will be launched on February 15th, and will hopefully be filled with his incredibly flattering cuts! (Trench coats, please, please, please).

  • In the past week, stock in Ugg boots has fallen an enormous 39%, with Crocs lagging not too far behind.

  • Tom Ford’s documentary, Tom Ford: Visionaries, airs tonight on OWN (nice job, Oprah), and looks as though it will finally offer an intimate, rare look at the fashion plate’s creative and personal processes.

  • Remember Karl Lagerfeld’s muse, Baptiste Giabiconi? Well, he is now a contestant on the French version of Dancing With The Stars and is often seen in body glitter. We can only hope Uncle Karl ends up in the audience at some point.

  • France’s First Lady, model/actress/singer Carla Bruni, just gave birth to her first child with President Nicolas Sarkozy at 43 years old. She was born at the Clinique de la Muette and her name is Giulia – congratulations, you two!

  • Now she is presumably finished with her role as the face of beauty company Mark, actress Ashley Greene has just been announced as the new face of DKNY and DKNY Jeans. Look forward to seeing the beautiful brunette in the brand’s Spring/Summer 2012 ad campaigns.

  • This has to be the greatest piece of marketing, ever. Rico/Rick Genest (aka Zombie Boy) paired up with cosmetics company Dermablend to create a video which covers his entire tattooed boy in ‘new skin’, and effectively proves their Leg and Body Cover to be the best concealer in the world. Their “Beyond The Cover” video campaign is the greatest thing my dark circles have ever seen.

  • Ugg Boots
    Now that the signs of this brutal winter are fleeing (who am I kidding? I live in Bangkok), it’s time to talk Whooga boots aka Ugg boots.

    I’m dodging stilettos, I’m sure. The truth is, before the fashion faux pas’ were riddled with fame and Paris Hilton-synonymity, Uggs were the love of my post-dance life. And they’re due for a comeback. Especially in the form of Whoogas.

    With a pair of both at your disposal you will find that:

  • The sheepskin on Whooga ugg boots are both thicker and softer than other brands.
  • They are cheaper! More bang for your buck and almost half the standard price. (Also, they have been kind enough to give you guys 10% off this week with the discount code “1578LELA“!)
  • The shaft/height options are much more flattering for the shape of your calf. No more looking like a tantrum-stomping alien.
  • The heel has more support: the kind that curves to your foot’s contours!
  • Whooga are also running a boot giveaway to everyone that signs up to their newsletter (open worldwide)! Personal ‘winner’ wishlist? Pink ugg boots. Wait, the mini ones…and the chocolate weave…and…and…

    Anna Fermanova: Ugg Offender

    Russian spy rings have a lot of Annas. In addition to Anna Chapman, Anna #2 has been revealed to beĀ Anna Fermanova – a woman who truly utilizes fashion. She was arrested on July 15 on charges of attempting to smuggle $15,000 worth of night vision devices used for automatic assault weapons.

    “It’s a piece of serious military hardware,” weapons experts have explained to the police. Yes, serious military hardware a woman hides on a flight from JFK to Moscow by concealing the munitions in her Uggs.

    Ah, so a war and a fashion crime.
