Jean Paul Gaultier SS10; Dolce & Gabbana SS10
Fashion and beauty go hand in hand, so it comes as no surprise that we're eager to know what we'll be wearing on our face next season, let alone our bodies. Besides the usual summer beauty trend- beach hair and tanned limbs- we've got the run down of all the newest looks to emerge from the SS10 runways. The only question is, which one will you be wearing come spring time?
Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen were just two of the 31 new members inducted into the CFDA this week, with a reception led by the group's president, Diane Von Furstenberg, at New York's Four Seasons. Current members Alexander Wang, Vera Wang and more came out for the gathering, and Tory Burch looked especially cute with her daughter as a date. Congrats to all - we're getting excited for February's fashion weeks already.

There is no doubt that since MAC burst onto the makeup scene back in 1984, they have made a dramatically credible impact on the fashion industry. Not only do they provide high quality makeup to the very best artists for shows and shoots, their professional advice can be accessed through their stand alone stores, along with their expert products. As if offering us the best cosmetics, industry secrets and the artists to teach us how to emulate the latest beauty trends is not enough, MAC produce striking limited edition collections - with collaborators ranging from Zandra Rhodes, to Hello Kitty, to Dame Edna Everage - and even feed further back into the industry with their proactive involvement in both London and New York Fashion Weeks, to name a few. Could we ask much more of a makeup brand? We think not, as we take a look back at their involvement in the Spring Summer 2010 collections...
Diane Kruger wore this simple LBD and monochrome chanel open toe ankle boots to the 4th Annual Kirk Douglas Awards for Excellence in Film this week.
What do you think of her look?
JCPenney, it's not that we didn't think you had it in you. After all, you've secured designer collaborations with Charlotte Ronson and Kimora Lee Simmons, so clearly you have negotiating power. But nabbing Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen to design for you? Now that one we didn't see coming.
The twins appear to be launching a juniors' line called Olsenboye. Previews of the Olsens' range are starting now, which suggests the line will launch for spring. Do we see a cheaper version of The Row or Elizabeth & James on the horizon? If so, we know what budget-conscious style addicts can wear with their H&M Jimmy Choos.
Anna Wintour comes to Marea, orders chicken, with avocado salad, neither on menu. What's the point?
Former New York Times food critic Frank Bruni vents on Twitter
We're not sure why, but the first thing that popped into our minds when we learned that Heidi Klum is launching a "pervasive lifestyle collection" was, "What will Karl Lagerfeld say?" The Chanel designer has been quick to take swipes at her for being an overly perky unknown (according to him), and has even gone so far as to criticise her husband Seal's skin. We smell a made-for-TV movie somewhere in that bickering. But we digress.
Klum will launch her new line for fall 2010, starting with 48 styles of shoes. The model is taking inspiration from her own wardrobe (naturally), which seems to be "feminine with a bit of a fashion and rock 'n' roll edge". Next, after footwear, will come workout clothes, dresses and swimwear. By February, a maternity line will follow. And all of this sounds like perfect bait for a 'Project Runway' challenge, no? Not that Karl will be watching.
