The house of Vuitton has access to just about every supe it could want for its ad campaigns—the latest stars Freja Beha Erichsen, Raquel Zimmermann, and Kristen McMenamy, and last season’s roped Christy Turlington, Karen Elson, and Natalia Vodianova—but for its fashion jewelry lookbook for Spring, the brand skipped the seasoned pros and went for friends instead. An international hodge-podge of It girls lent their services to the sixties pin-up inspired shots, including Alexandra Richards (above right), Rinko Kikuchi, Annabelle Dexter-Jones, Sky Ferreira, and Nathalie Love. Of course, since these ladies are mostly part-time models, their full-time careers are listed, too—though, of course, they’re mainly of the It girl variety. There are actresses, TV announcers, DJs, singers, and even a “reporter and party girl,” but our favorite goes to Miss Mary Charteris (above left), modeling a pendant and necklace from the Cosmopolitan collection. Her job: “Aristocrat.”

Tim Hamilton canceled his eponymous menswear show in Paris, opting to show the new collection by private appointment instead. “It’s about the clothing at the end of the day, not the spectacle,” the designer said. [WWD]
Miu Miu opens its newest shop in Forte dei Marmi, Italy, the Tuscan town where the rich and famous (like Giorgio Armani and Andrea Bocelli) keep villas. Funny, we always thought of Bocelli as more Prada than Miu Miu, but it is hard to resist those kitty collars. [Racked]

It seemed a simple enough concept: To rebuild following its devastating earthquake, Haiti needed cash and tools. So that’s exactly what Tools For Thought founders Diana Campbell and Julie Ragolia set out to find. Campbell, a museum administrator, and Ragolia, a fashion stylist with an art background, canvassed their friends and colleagues to gather tools. Of course, when your friends and colleagues are Nate Lowman, Dan Colen, Alex Katz, and Ed Ruscha, they’re swinging a different sort of hammer than the one that repairs the hospital. No matter. The hammer—the one is question Ruscha’s, by the way, a mallet for pounding canvas stretchers—is going on the auction block, along with the tools and work of more than 100 other artists, to raise money for Partners in Health’s Haiti efforts. Kon Trubkovich, Alex Katz (whose paintbrush is above), Subversive’s Justin Giunta, Marilyn Minter, Kiki Smith, and Patti Smith have all donated work to Monday night’s auction, where Smith (Patti, not Kiki) will perform and Alexandra Richards will spin. Attendees are encouraged to bring a mighty tool of their own—the checkbook.
Tools for Thought’s Rebuild Haiti cocktail reception and silent auction take place Monday, March 15, at Sotheby’s. For more information, visit www.ourtoolsforthought.org, or to purchase tickets, click here.
