The power couple is rumored to be hosting a star-studded party, including the likes of Prince Harry, Victoria and David Beckham, Sharon Stone, and Catherine Zeta-Jones, at the Victoria and Albert Museum two days before the Opening Ceremony.

It looks like Chanel’s The Little Black Jacket exhibition may have a little competition on hand. Johan Lindeberg enlisted the help of Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin to photograph 100 models, including Lily Donaldson, Doutzen Kroes, and Anja Rubik, wearing the BLK DNM Tux Jacket 11 for a black-and-white portrait series.

Oscar de la Renta is on a retail kick. Not only is the designer planning to double the size of his Madison Avenue flagship to 4,000 square feet, but he also has his sights set on a first outpost on London’s Mount Street. These endeavors come shortly after de la Renta (who has 13 stores and counting) opened his second store in the Middle East. [WWD]
