Yesterday was a busy night in New York. As well as the Time 100 party, the city also played host to the Chanel Artist Dinner during the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival at the Odeon. All of the names you would expect were there like Camilla Belle, Leigh Lezark and models Arizona Muse and Karlie Kloss. Even Julia Restoin-Roitfeld made an appearance showing her ever growing baby bump
Kanye West's fashion line was notably missing in most magazine's this season aside from the fur shoes that we reported appeared in the latest issue of Harper's Bazaar Australia. While this may true, magazine's are still interesting in the man himself as this image has just been released of the rapper's first appearance in American Vogue.
In the feature, titled 'Tisci's Time', West appears along the designer's celebrity muses Liv Tyler, Karolina Kurkova, Florence Welch and Liya Kebede. His inclusion in the mix isn't a surprise. Yeezy has sported the designer's wares extensively in the past and brought him on board to design the cover art for the 'Watch The Throne' album.“I was a little bit scared,” Tisci told Hamish Bowles, “because I’m not an artist.”
Whether she is in London or New York, Stella McCartney definitely attracts a crowd so the string of editors turning up to congratulate her at the launch of her new Soho store this week came at no surprise.
Guests ranging from faithful Stella wearers, Naomi Watts and Liv Tyler, to David Lauren, Lauren Bush, Erin Lauder and Anna Wintour were treated to an intimate dinner setting in the store with a Meat Free menu created by Mario Batali.
It's all systems go at Stella McCartney at the moment. This week the brand are preparing for the launch of their second iPad app, which will be available for download on iTunes next week, which develops on the Stella's World section of the website. Following in the foosteps of brands like Balenciaga, McCartney is bracing all things interactive with the new app, which will featurie a gallery of images from the recently launched 'Linda McCartney: a life in photographs' book as well as behind-the-scenes images of the Team GB campaign shot by Jacob Sutton.
But it's not all about the app. If - like us - you're a fan of the brand, you'll find yourself bookmarking their revamped website as it's new features take it beyond the usual e-commerce site. Candid behind-the-scenes shots from their latest campaign appear alongside images of celebs like Liv Tyler sporting the fall collection and shots from the show. If you're looking for that little bit extra you'll like the private wardrobing on offer. At the click of a button you can book their personalised concierge style in store service, which provides a car, private store appointments and personal styling sessions.
The brand now delivers to an additional 28 European countries.
Last night the Lincoln Centre in New York played home to the 2011 CFDA Awards. As we knew, Marc Jacobs picked up the Lifetime Achievement Award, Phoebe Philo was presented with the International Award and Lady Gaga collected the big 'Fashion Icon' gong at last night's ceremony.

Accessories designer of the year went to Alexander Wang, Menswear Designer of the Year went to Michael Bastian and Eddie Borgo recieved the Swarovski Award for Accessory Design.
Despite hiding her bump in past months, this week Rachel Zoe decided to show it off in this sheer top whilst shopping on Rodeo Drive.
The stylist is ready to drop any minute but is hoping that she doesn't give birth until next week. This period marks the busiest time of year for Zoe as she prepares for the Oscars - where she'll be styling long-time client Anne Hathaway, who will also host the event, as well as Cameron Diaz and Liv Tyler. "I have conversations with him on a daily basis, like, ‘You cannot go anywhere until after [the Oscars]," she said. "I have a lot coming up so he’s not allowed to go anywhere yet!'
