Johnny Depp Joins the Bling Ring

-------

Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp was photographed in Beijing on Monday wearing a diamond ring, thus confirming his engagement to actress Amber Heard. Apparently, this is news—no, not the fact that he’s engaged, the fact that he’s wearing a diamond engagement ring. Sure, it’s a little bit unorthodox, but goodness knows it looks better than the fratty beaded “man” jewelry that bros seem to favor these days. And despite the fact that Depp ambiguously called it a “chick’s ring,” his accouterment just might spur a whole new kind of marriage equality.

Amber Heard: Unexpectedly Chic?

-------

Amber Heard in New York CityMemo to fashion-show organizers: Is it time to add Amber Heard to your front-row invite lists? The young actress is enjoying a new boost in popularity, thanks to her relationship with Johnny Depp, but the surprise is not the May-December romance (he’s 50, she’s 27), but how well she’s been holding her own against Mr. Depp’s famous stylishness. That redoubtable organ The Daily Mail dedicated a page today to her dog-walking style, and we’re inclined to agree that she looks great in an oversize coat (expressively tied à la Celine Fall ’13), skinny jeans, and booties. The last two may be young-actress standard-issue, but Heard manages to elevate them to a gamine place that Lou Doillon or Charlotte Gainsbourg would recognize. See you in February, then?

The Heavenly Host (Committee)

-------

Fresh from his Malibu event to reveal an Angel—that’d be Gisele Bündchen—as his new campaign face, David Yurman headed for Heaven. Yurman joined the Art of Elysium’s Jennifer Howell last night at the L.A. home of artist and musician Mark Mothersbaugh (famously of Devo, to say nothing of many Wes Anderson soundtracks) to toast the host committee of the nonprofit’s 2013 Heaven Gala. Justin Bartha, Abigail Spencer (pictured, right), and Amy Smart were among the Young Hollywood-ites who turned out for the evening, but it was Amber Heard (pictured, left) who elicited singling out from Howell. “Did you know she’s bilingual?” she asked the crowd. The actress makes use of her two languages in her work for the L.A.-based organization, which encourages artists, actors, and musicians to donate their time and talent to seriously ill children. “She’s in the hospital with the kids—and talking to them—every chance she gets.”

The evening presented itself as an opportunity for David Yurman, in town for a mini tour that includes the reopening of his expanded Rodeo Drive flagship, to lend his support and champion the charity that has become a cause célèbre for celebs. “We want to find some way to give back,” he said, and Art of Elysium is “heroic, and unbelievably charitable.” Heroico, as Heard might say.

What Is It About The Sixties That Keeps Us Coming Back?

-------

The early sixties were a favorite reference point on the Fall runways, and as Fashionista recently pointed out, that’s led to an abundance of mod-themed editorials in the new September magazines. It’s worth adding that our culture’s current fascination with the youthquake years goes way beyond fashion. There’s Mad Men, of course, which is finally, officially beginning to produce its fifth season, but next month sees the release of two more decade-specific shows: Pan Am, starring Christina Ricci as a jet-age stewardess, and The Playboy Club, featuring twenty-first-century pinup Amber Heard as a Bunny at the original Chicago club. (Talk about male wish fulfillment!) Then there’s the big screen—and no, we’re not talking about the rumored fourth Austin Powers film. We’ll Take Manhattan is scheduled to come out next year and tells the tale of photographer David Bailey and model Jean Shrimpton’s era-defining fling. We know just the thing to wear to the premiere: a black and white fur coat from Christopher Bailey’s Shrimpton-inspired Burberry Prorsum collection.

Wu Gives Women What They Want

-------


Jason Wu blew into a particularly blustery L.A. yesterday for a pre-party to celebrate his Spring 2010 trunk show at Neiman Marcus. “It’s such a different world out here and the weather is so nice—except for the wind,” said Wu. “But I have no hair, so I don’t have to worry.” If the hairdos of guests like Jessica Stroup, Lily Collins, Amber Heard, and Katie Cassidy were on the artfully undone side, their frocks were, in signature Wu fashion, perfectly pulled together. “I saw a dress that I wanted to wear for Cannes, so I requested that they send it over for me to try on,” remarked hostess Diane Kruger. “Jason showed up personally, which I thought was so sweet, and fit me right there. We’ve been friends ever since.” With half of the Neiman Marcus stock already sold before his personal appearance even started, Wu reflected on his success. “It’s been a big year,” he said. “All women want is to look beautiful and I’m here for them.”
