McQueen’s Plot, Charlotte’s Mag, And More…


“Really, what I’m aiming for is world domination!” Ever modest, Alexander McQueen prepares for greatness with his video runway show, to be streamed live from Paris on October 6. From the sound of it, watching the video from home may be even better than watching it in person. Whaddya say now, ticket holders? [WWD]

This mini Karl would make a chic stocking stuffer. Though, at around $200, perhaps your only stocking stuffer. [WWD]

Charlotte Casiraghi
is responsible for some green reading this fashion season: Ever Manifesto, the sustainably minded publication produced by Casiraghi’s “communications think tank,” will be available for perusal at Corso Como in Milan and Colette in Paris. We do love an eco-royal. Prince Charles, you may have some competition for our hearts.

Yea, Nay, Or Eh: Dare To Bare?


There’s no question that storybook heiress Olympia Scarry can afford scads of lacy underthings; evidently, though, she prefers to do without. We like the tough/casual vibe she’s working, but we’re still deciding if the “commando” look is terrif or taboo. What do you think? See how Eugenie Niarchos, Margherita Missoni, and Charlotte Casiraghi are putting it together for the Venice Biennale in our party report.

Charlotte Dellal’s Champagne Shoe Party


Charlotte Dellal knows people. Alexander Wang cozied up to her sister Alice and took her as his date to last year’s CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards; Charlotte Casiraghi and her brother Alex Dellal are likethis; her mother, Andrea, is a former model. Not to put too fine a gloss on it, but the girl’s got friends in high places. Fitting, then, that her shoes—produced under the name Charlotte Olympia—are of the seriously tottering variety. She did make a pair of flats once. “They were experimental,” she explained at her tea-and-Champagne party at London’s St. Martins Lane hotel Tuesday. “And I swear to you, these are more comfortable.” “These,” per Dellal, were the towering, striped-wedge over-the-knee platform boots she was wearing, a look from the Fall ’09 collection being presented. “I call this my super-wedge. They’re the highest I’ve ever done.” Is there a particular girl Dellal has in mind when she designs her sky-scraping platforms? “I don’t have a muse,” she notes. “And I don’t even particularly design with myself in mind, either. I guess I just think about the Charlotte Olympia girl, who gets dressed from the feet up. Shoes first, figure out the rest later.”
