Los Angeles' Museum of Contemporary Arts drew quite the A-list crowd to its 30th anniversary gala this Saturday. Among the guests? Ciara, Chloe Sevigny, Rachel Zoe and John Legend. We give Jeremy Scott the most-daring-outfit award, but our favourite of the evening? Zoe Saldana's tulle-infused romance. And with a Lady Gaga performance, everyone, as usual, was in for a treat.
Sessillee Lopez and Chanel Iman are rumoured to be embroiled in a messy feud which has allegedly been played out through Twitter. Having most recently both starred on the cover of i-D's September Issue and Allure's October 2009 'Bombshell' issue, one would have thought that the last thing either model would want, would be to attract unwanted and potentially negative publicity at this stage in their careers.
Pixie Geldof is fast making a name for herself as a model. Having graced the runways of Jeremy Scott and Vivienne Westwood during London Fashion Week earlier this week, most thought her dalliance as a runway model would come to an end.
How wrong they were, as the 19 year old popped up at Milan Fashion Week walking alongside Daisy Lowe in the CNC Costume National show and saw her showcasing a charcoal coloured jumpsuit and sleeveless cardigan from the CNCs street life line. Only time will tell if Miss Geldof can make a hat-trick by walking in a show during Paris Fashion Week too.
The Flinstones were the theme behind Jeremy Scott's Spring/Summer 2010 collection this morning. Fred Flinstone's orange and black print look appeared on everything from an super mini bod con strapless dress, worn by Daisy Lowe, to fur cropped jackets and the back of models hair.
The collection wasn't only black and orange though. Scott opted for bright pink and black looks with the same print on girlie strapless prom dresses, cut out swimsuits and a bodysuit that was slightly structured with panels on the hips.
To celebrate 20 years of ANDAM (Association Nationale pour le Développement des Arts de la Mode), Charles Anastase, Jeremy Scott and design duo Bless have transformed the legendary Longchamp Le Pliage bag. ANDAM works to promote and support up-and-coming French and international fashion talent, with previous winners of the prestigious award each creating limited editions of the bag as part of their prize.
All three designers were thrilled at the chance to recreate the classic, with Anastase admitting that he'd "always dreamed of transforming a Longchamp bag", and Scott referring to The Pliage as a modern French icon - "The Pliage bag is a French icon, no different from the croissant or the Eiffel tower - it is chic, sophisticated and handsome all in one".
Anastase's first design features a pair of ballet shoes, the second featuring Persian cats; Scott's consists of a digital print of himself as a "nouveau samurai"; and design team Bless have transformed the bag into a bracelet to push the boundaries of shape and function. "Here are three styles, three ideas, three ambiances that reflect the diversity which it is ANDAM's misson to nurture. Longchamp should be congratulated on taking part in this game of transformation with such enthusiasm," says head of ANDAM, Nathalie Dufour. We couldn't agree more, particularly when the celebration involves three beautiful birthday bags.
Be sure to head down to a Longchamp boutique from October 1st, to bag yourself a limited edition Longchamp Le Pliage.
We've all been left wondering who will fill the void now that Giles is moving to Paris this season but there is good news. You need not worry. Jeremy Scott is leaving Paris for London in September and will take Giles' spot on the schedule.
Scott's reason for coming to London is different to the likes of Burberry and Jonathan Saunders who have decided to come to London in September to celebrate the British Fashion Council's 125th anniversary. According to his spokesperson, ‘He wants to build a following in London after doing so in Paris for the last few seasons. He is also opening a shop.'
According to Grazia, the British Fashion Council are set to announce that Scott will be showing on Tuesday September 22nd any day now.
