Yesterday Salvatore Ferragamo held a big party in New York to celebrate the launch of their new fragrance, Signorina. While they managed to pull a pretty impressive guest list - everyone from Veronica Webb to Emma Roberts attended - all eyes were on AnnaSophia Robb.
As we reported last month, the young actress has just secured the role of the young Carrie Bradshaw in much anticipated, 'The Carrie Diaries'. While her look didn't wow me, I have a feeling that Jennifer Lawrence and Elizabeth Olsen might have some competition with her in the coming months. The TV series is set to be a big one and it's only a matter of time before the industry begin to woo her just as they are doing to Lawrence and Olsen at the moment.
It's been a busy social week so far. Monday night saw the CFDA host their annual CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund awards and last night everyone came out to tribute director Pedro Almodovar at the Museum of Modern Art's forth Annual Film Benefit. The best look on the night were definitely Miranda Kerr who looked stood out in her zip-up Peter Pilotto top and skirt combo teamed with Nicholas Kirkwood heels.
Last night the Nokia Theatre in L.A. played host to the 2011 People's Choice. Jennifer Aniston presented Adam Sandler with the award for favourite comedy actor and Jackie Chan was awarded the title as favourite action star, which went to Johnny Depp last year. As expected, 'Twilight' was the big winner of the night receiving three awards and Kristen Stewart walked away with the big favourite actress gong.
We've all been waiting to see the fruits of Stefano Tonchi's ideas for the new look W and he definitely gives us a teaser of things to come with his first September issue. Already breaking records, Tonchi decided to opt for a three cover fold out which is allegedly the first time the magazine has ever done it. Also, rather than opting for a predictable A-lister to help sell the big September issue the magazine is fronted by fresh acting talent - Kate Dennings, Jessica Chastan, Yaya Da Costa, Mary Elizabeth, Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Roberts and Zoe Kravitz - all shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin.
We thought we could sense a bit of irony in the cover's title, 'Great Expectations' which Tonchi has since confirmed was intentional. After all, it was his move to the magazine that began this summer's editorial reshuffling and has caused a great deal of anticipation about what he'll do in the new role. "I wanted to have some self-irony, because there are so many expectations about what this W will be, so it refers to these eight great new girls, but also to the pressure that we feel to satisfy the expectations that people have for the magazine,” he told The Cut.
Last night Katy Perry hosted the 2010 Teen Choice Awards in Los Angeles. Inspired by Twilight, who bagged 12 awards on the night, Perry went all Vampire-esqe donning a black leather dress, dark lips and a long black wig. Amongst the singer's six outfit changes was a prom queen look.
Two weeks ago we told you all about the rumoured cover stars for the big magazine's september issues and today a lot of these were confirmed by WWD.
Although Stefano Tonchi was rumoured to have chosen Lindsay Lohan to cover his first september issue at W, he is now said to be working with Zoe Kravitz and actress Emma Roberts. The Cut reports that Vogue has not confirmed Halle Berry as there September cover but according to insiders, it's a done deal.
WWd confirmed the following covers:
Elle — Julia Roberts Harper's Bazaar — Jennifer Aniston InStyle — Hilary Swank Vanity Fair — Lady Gaga T — Freida Pinto
Take a sneak peek at the August 2010 issue of W - the magazine's first cover under the direction of new editor-in-chief, Stefano Tonchi - featuring Mad Men's Jon Hamm and Rebecca Hall, as we reported back in May. The cover shows signs of things to come for W, starring the up and coming actors, and shot by lesser known photographer Nathaniel Goldberg. The choice of photographer is a stark contrast to the history of the magazine, which at one point in time continuously featured the likes of Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, Steven Klein et al.
The focus on rising, underground talent continues as the September issue cover - which was originally said to be starring Lindsay Lohan - will feature a group of young talent, the ones to watch, including Emma Roberts, Zoe Kravitz and Jennifer Lawrence. Now we just have to wait a month to see W's content with Tonchi at the helm, and by the looks of things W is taking a change for the better.
