Nothing like a little charity to show you where you stand on fashion’s food chain. As part of the CFDA and Vogue‘s new auction for Hurricane Sandy relief, a date with Ryan Lochte (well, a swimming lesson and lunch, but who’s to say where that’ll lead), runs an estimated $20K; a day with Bryanboy is a comparative bargain at $1,000.
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]
Kiddie Cute With Wes Anderson And Lanvin, One Small Step For Bryanboy, One Giant Leap For Bloggers, And More…
There’s a new Wes Anderson movie in the offing. Focus Features is backing Moonrise Kingdom, the latest from the Royal Tenenbaums and Rushmore director. The film, which will be shot this summer in Rhode Island, stars a pair of young unknown actors as a teenage couple that runs away to elope. In the supporting cast, some known actors: Bruce Willis, Frances McDormand, Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman, and (fashion folk, hold your breath) Tilda Swinton. [Huffington Post via Gilt Manual]
Speaking of kids and cute (of the ultra-expensive variety): Lanvin is launching children’s clothing. It’s a return to form for the house: Founder Jeanne Lanvin spent part of her early career making pieces for mothers and daughters (a sketch of some of her children’s designs from 1929 is above).

Readers of The New York Times may have noticed something a little odd about a recent article on the Met gala—Oscar de la Renta was identified in a photo as Giorgio Armani. One of those confused readers? Oscar de la Renta. “What kind of trip was your photographer on?” Mr. de la Renta reportedly said when he called the Times. “It’s just fabulous for my ego. Whoever did it must have been on some kind of LSD I don’t know about.” (Side note: Does this suggest there’s a kind of LSD OdlR does know about?) [On the Runway]
And the next chapter in blogger world domination begins: Bryanboy announces he’s signed with power agency CAA. [Racked]
