Watching the models shoot down the runway at this morning’s Roberto Cavalli show, we found ourselves doing a triple take at look 41. Is that a young Emmanuelle Alt? It was Brazilian up-and-comer Muriel Beal (pictured), who we also saw at Emporio Armani on Thursday as well as Proenza Schouler and Theyskens’ Theory during NYFW, but with those razor-edged cheekbones, that shock of dark hair, the spray of freckles—there’s no denying Beal’s resemblance to the lanky Paris Vogue editor. It’s not the first time we’ve noticed doppelgängers for fashion’s power players on the catwalks, either. In-demand Marie Piovesan would easily pass for a young Marie-Amélie Sauvé, while we’ve imagined Kel Markey to be Carine Roitfeld’s long-lost love child.
“It’s a big return, no?” Carine Roitfeld says of the upcoming debut issue of her CR Fashion Book. We wouldn’t expect the former Paris Vogue editor to do things any other way. She’s been keeping most of the details of her new biannual magazine (out next month) under wraps, but Style.com got a first look at the making of CR in this exclusive video before it launches on CRfashionbook.com later today.
Last season, Gisele led the pack at Givenchy, but Riccardo Tisci already has a new set of stars. Replacing Bündchen is Stella Tennant, who is featured in the campaign image (above) the label released this morning, along with Joan Smalls, Stef van der Laan, Daniela Braga, Simone Nobili, Jarrod Scott, and Rodrigo Braga. Of the Fall 2012 shots, lensed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott and styled by Carine Roitfeld, Tisci tells WWD, “It is about happiness and the freedom of expressing yourself with your body. It shows a dynamic, happy, and fun world, which is what fashion needs.” Of the British stunner, he says, “Stella represents modernity, elegance, masculinity, and femininity at the same time, together with a dynamic, energetic beauty.”
Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld’s much-hyped The Little Black Jacket traveling exhibition kicks off tonight with a party in Soho for celebrities and fashion industry insiders. The week-long homage to the French house classic will open to the public on Friday, with 113 black-and-white photographs of A-listers such as Sarah Jessica Parker, Joan Smalls, and Yoko Ono, who adapted the iconic jacket to fit their own personal style.

Paris men’s fashion week just got a little bigger. Band of Outsiders and Hardy Amies have both been confirmed to show for the first time during the June lineup. And in true Band of Outsiders fashion, the label’s designer, Scott Sternberg, has taken matters into his own hands, tapping one model to act as a living mannequin, who will show off all the looks during the course of a 60-hour period and live in a cardboard and wood plank box. Amies will show as part of the official calendar. [WWD]
A month after parting ways with former designer Manish Arora, Paco Rabanne has promoted its young studio design director, Lydia Maurer, to creative director of its womenswear. German-born Maurer, just 29, will present her first collection for the house during Paris fashion week in October and will also oversee accessories. [WWD]
Are Shaun White and Lily Collins a thing? Following Monday night’s CFDA Awards, rumors have been flying that the Olympic snowboarder is pursuing the young Mirror Mirror actress after a short stint with model Bar Refaeli. Reps for both had no comment. [Page Six]
