“You could knock on any door and just invite a neighbor over to be part of a photography sitting. It was as easy as borrowing a cup of sugar,” Bruce Weber says of the bayside village Bellport, where he lived in the seventies and eighties. Tomorrow, the Bellport-Brookhaven Historical Society debuts a new exhibition of photos (pictured), which first appeared in a 1982 issue of British Vogue, that the iconic photographer shot during his time there. We’re guessing that the shoot, styled by Grace Coddington, was slightly tougher than borrowing sugar… [T]
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are rolling out the red carpet for the upcoming London Olympics.

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]
Lara Stone, a space cadet? In electro-pop duo Hot Chips’ latest music video, the gap-toothed model and face of CK One (pictured) took her strangest role to date, dressed in a pointy-shouldered jacket and low-cut bustier as the captain of a spaceship, alongside legendary actor Terence Stamp. Stone landed the gig on behalf of British comedian Peter Serafinowicz, the video’s director and friend of Stone’s husband, David Walliams. [Telegraph]
Stella McCartney is going for the gold. Less than a year after opening her Soho store, the designer is opening her first-ever standalone Adidas by Stella McCartney outpost. The shop will be located in South Kensington’s Brompton Cross, which houses stores for McCartney’s mainline and childrenswear. The designer is the creative director of the Adidas Team GB Olympic uniforms. [Vogue U.K.]
We’ve all seen Angelina Jolie’s engagement ring, but what jewels does she have to pair with it? Just ask Robert Procop. The jeweler is setting up a showcase in the South of France this summer, where his Style of Jolie collection (designed in collaboration with the actress), along with pieces from his own Exceptional Jewels collection, will be on display.

If Bryanboy’s front-row seat wasn’t close enough to the runway, he just got a little closer. The blogger is reportedly joining the cast of America’s Next Top Model alongside judges Kelly Cutrone and model Rob Evans. This cast change is just one of several made in the past few months, since Tyra Banks gave mainstays J. Alexander, Jay Manuel, and Nigel Barker the boot. [Styleite]
The director of the year-old Brigitte Bardot fashion label, Sarah Ohana, has enlisted the help of industry insiders, including André Saraiva, Paris retailer Maria Luisa Moumaillou, and French fashion editor Viviane Blassel to create one-off items for charity. Some of the wares up for sale are a white silk gown, a gingham dress, and a black leotard, all playing off of pieces that Bardot wore in her films. A portion of the profits will be donated to the Brigitte Bardot Foundation for the protection of animals. [WWD]
Where Angelina goes, the red carpet follows. It’s been scant months since Jolie bared her now-famous leg in Atelier Versace at the Academy Awards—the leg that launched a thousand tweets and at least one Twitter account—but hipbones and acres of thigh made bold appearances last night at the “East Coast Oscars,” the Met gala. Gisele Bündchen made the leg-jut her own in Givenchy Haute Couture, as did Anja Rubik in impossibly slit Anthony Vaccarello. The lesson: Make a statement if you can pull it off, but this is not a look for mere mortals. (There’s a reason “super” is typically appended to “model” in their titles.) Do not try this at home—you could pull something.
