We really missed Karlie Kloss during London and Milan but luckily for us she made a big return today at Paris fashion week opening the show for Anthony Vaccarello.
Last season Kloss wore the designer's black cut out dress with that thigh-high slit and as you will recall, Carine Roitfeld wore it to her big fashion week closing party shortly after it debuted on the runway and Gwyneth Paltrow wore it to cover US Harper's Bazaar's revamped March issue. Today she was a lot more covered up in this trouser-shirt combo.
Coco Rocha is one of the few models that have managed to carve a solid career for themselves outside the modelling realm. Through her blog, she quickly became the face of a campaign for healthy standards in modelling and during New York Fashion week this month, she went behind the lens to shoot behind-the-scenes for New York Magazine. Today she confirmed that's only the beginning.
Rocha has been bocked to host a new hair and make-up reality show which is set to premiere online this spring. Much in the format of reality shows like 'Project Runway' and 'America's Next Top Model', the show called 'Canada's Beauty Talent' will see you hair and make-up artists compete against each other in the hope of getting spreads in various magazines.
Last week the New York Times ran a great piece on Stella McCartney, in which she revealed that Tom Ford had offered her the role of creative director of Gucci back in 2011 when she left Chloé. Ford has since refuted the claims telling the paper that there had been a misunderstanding. 'It was never a conversation about taking over at Gucci,' he said. 'I think she might have interpreted that at a certain point' but he 'just never corrected her'.
But McCartney is sticking to her statement. 'He's a lying, cheating... what?' she said when she heard Ford's denial. "That's the weirdest thing. Why would he take me into an office and show me every dead animal? Oops!"
I like Angelina Jolie as much as the next person. Unfortunately, though, her recent covers have left much to be desired. Don't get me wrong, it's never been about her necessarily but rather as a result of way too much retouching (remember her January cover of Marie Claire?) or simply because they all tend to look the same.
Her latest cover comes from Vogue Turkey for their March 2012 issue shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot and is by far her strongest cover in a while. What's even better is that there isn't a leg in sight.
Like Victoria Beckham, Nicole Richie is one of those few celebrities-turned-designers actually producing great clothes. Her clothing and accessories lines continue to go do well with her celebrities fans and at retail and late last year she confirmed that she has a fragrance in the works and is working on a line with QVC.
In her March cover story for Ocean Drive magazine, though, she makes it clear that those new product categories are on the beginning. “This has been in my head for a very long time,” she said about building her empire. "Ultimately, this will be a lifestyle brand...I’m going to do home furnishings and flatware, everything.”
Last year ended on a busy note for Christian Louboutin as the brand celebrated their 20th anniversary. In September they announced the launch of their first book and in November hosted a big party in Barneys New York to celebrate their anniversary window displays and also announced the dates of their debut UK retrospective.
But the celebrations don't end there. Yesterday they opened an intimate concept store at London's Selfridges. Open from February 27 to April 1, the pop-up will showcase a special anniversary collection of shoes comprised of 20 shoes, one for each year that the brand has been running, alongside some of the key styles from the S/S12 collection.
Over the past year much speculation has circulated about who will play Carrie Bradshaw in the much-anticipated CW series, 'The Carrie Diaries', which is the prequel to 'Sex and the City'. While the front runners for the role were Blake Lively and Elizabeth Olsen, today reports confirm that relatively unknown actress Anna Sophia Robb has booked the job.
Who will play the other characters is still unknown but what we do know is that 'Gossip Girl' producers Stephanie Savage and Josh Schwartz are on board along with the show's much-loved costume designer Eric Daman.
I've never been the biggest fan of Katy Perry's style nor have I been particularly crazy about her magazine spreads but her latest offering is differnt.
The singer looks unrecognisable on the cover of Interview's March issue but it works. Details about the cover and images from the full shoot and the accompanying editorial are yet to be released but what do you think of the cover? Are you as pleasantly surprised as I am?
