Coco Rocha Elle Italia Italy
Elle Italia has used their magazine as an outlet for some Coco crazy. The spotlight is definitely shining on supermodel Coco Rocha, who not only fronts the January 2011 issue with a playful Gretel-like image from Alexei Hay but also has three leading editorials in the issue. You go, girl.

Valentino for Gap
Holy collaborations! In celebration of their arrival in Italy, Gap have announced they have teamed up with the House of Valentino for a capsule collection.

Valentino’s Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli have created the collection based on “iconic Gap basics“. It’s due to launch in November, to coincide with the opening of Gap’s flagship on Milan’s Corso Vittorio Emanuele. In addition to the Milan store, the collection will also be available from Gap’s London flagship on Oxford Street, Dover Street Market, Colette in Paris, and Gap’s new Rome store which opens next year. There are no plans for the line to be available in the U.S. just yet, and no word on pricing (though Gap collection prices are expected.)

Natalia Vodianova Eating Movie Role
Deadline reported late last week that Natalia Vodianova would star opposite Johnathan Rhys Meyers in Belle du Seigneur, an adaptation of a late 1960s novel of the same name from writer Albert Cohen.

This will be movie number two for Vodianova after premièring as Medusa in Clash of the Titans. Belle du Seigneur will show her as a WWII-era married Swiss woman who falls in love with a Jewish soldier (that’s Meyers). The movie will be filmed on location in Geneva and around Italy starting in late October, set to debut sometime in 2011.
