Cameron Diaz has been the subject of a fair amount of criticism recently. Her new 'look' hasn't gone down particularly well but Tag Heuer seem to like it. This week the brand announced that Diaz will serve as their new brand ambassador and that's not it. Diaz was the muse of their new Link Lady collection, a campaign which she will also front.
“The Link Lady is modern, sexy and elegant, and I’m equally comfortable wearing it on the red carpet or in my day-to-day life,” she said at an appearance at Basel in Switzerland. Along with fronting the campaign, the actress will also work with the brand on initiatives to help empower women.
After announcing their split this summer, Linda Evangelista and Peter Morton - founder of the Hard Rock Hotel - have announced that they've reconciled. According to the New York Post the pair worked things out in late October and made their first public appearance together since patching things up at Art Basel last week.
Last week it was revealed that Style.com's Derek Blasberg - their very own man-about-town, who covers all the hippest parties - had been doing some 'consulting' with the agency that handled an Yves Saint Laurent event, and was reportedly asking for $2,500 characterised as an 'appearance fee'. It appears that it isn't only fees Derek charges for parties, as other exploits the writer has allegedly been making have come to surface.
Several sources have confirmed that Blasberg took an indulgent - and free - trip to Cole Haan in Rockefeller Centre last month, going home with over half a dozen pairs of free shoes after which he tweeted "Here is something I didn't think I'd ever say: I am in LOVE with Cole Haan's shoes for men. Truly. I blame @The Selby". Shame he forgot to mention that the shoes were free, which if true could land the renowned writer in some trouble, as the Federal Trade Commission rules that all bloggers must disclose when goods or services they write about are provided free of charge, or face legal action.
This year brings with it a new Swiss partnership, as Bally is teaming up with Art Basel and Art Basel Miami Beach. For the collaboration, contemporary artists from Switzerland will help design a capsule collection of products in tandem with the Bally design team. The new Bally Love range will now be produced annually, in conjunction with the world-renowned art shows.
The first creative to team up with Bally will be Philippe Decrauzat, an artist who'll turn the brand's products into "optical sensations" by playing on illusion-generating abstract and geometric prints. Decrauzat's capsule collection with the brand will go on display during Art Basel in June, then will be available in select stores from November.
You had plenty of opinions about Daphne Guinness' spin in those Alexander McQueen's hoof heels, so now we want to know how you like her Akris ad. Steven Klein photographed the brand's Spring 2010 campaign, which features Guinness looking incredibly similar to her style for an Italian Vogue editorial from October.If you ask Akris designer Albert Kriemler, the trendsetter "emanates a sense of mystery and aristocracy" in the new shots.
While we're on the Guinness subject, let's point out that she might have called it quits with blonde hair, at least for the time being. She spotted at Miami's Art Basel over the weekend with black hair, which curiously hardly budged when she jumped into a pool - couture clothes and stock of diamonds still on.
