Gaga Galaxy, Celebs Never Learn, And More…

Happy Birthday, Mr. Lauren. We hope that when we turn 70 we’ll be celebrating it somewhere like the Boom Boom Room (sorry, but we’re just not calling it QT). [WWD]

OMG OTK. An impassioned argument as to why the thigh-high boot trend shouldn’t trickle down. [The Awl]

The Kardashian sisters—Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney—are designing a collection for Bebe, making them the 12,693rd celebrity team to try their hand at fashion. Sigh. [People]

Manolo Blahnik certainly won’t be happy about it. “I hate celebrities. All those pointless girls. They are ‘famous.’ Ridiculous,” he tells British Vogue before showing them his new collection over tea and cakes. [British Vogue]

Christian Louboutin Goes Psycho


We’re planning on wearing flats on Fashion’s Night Out. How else could we get from Saks Fifth Avenue (JT alert!) to Vena Cava’s block party in Williamsburg and back to the Meatpacking District without developing some Big Apple-sized blisters? Speaking of hoofing it, Christian Louboutin will be offering Champagne foot baths and pedicures at his Madison Avenue shop. No, the shoe maestro himself won’t be in town; he’s busy putting the finishing touches on his new Rodeo Drive boutique. Louboutin directed a short film in honor of his new Beverly Hills home, and he offered an exclusive sneak peek. Psychologic owes a big debt to the Alfred Hitchcock classic, if only Janet Leigh had been lucky enough to land in Louboutin nirvana after she met her grisly end. Click above to watch the video.

Cubist Clothing


We got a sneak peek of Ruffian‘s favorite print from the upcoming Spring collection, and, well, it’s a little racy. Inspired by the Picasso: Mosqueteros exhibit at the Gagosian Gallery this spring, Brian Wolk and Claude Morais channeled Cubism’s favorite titillator for their own designs and came up with a graphic homage to the late great. The resulting geometric nude torso print will be splashed on tops and dresses; a Christian Louboutin stiletto in the same palette is in the works, as well. We love this shot of Morais in the studio, getting work done in a Picasso-tested-and-approved getup, paint brushes included.

Minnie’s House


“I’ve always liked gender-bender stuff,” said Minnie Mortimer Gaghan last night at her soirée in the glassy penthouse at the Cooper Square Hotel to preview her first full collection. True to the organic origins of the line (read: making stuff I want to wear), the designer was her own best advert, wearing a gray schoolboy blazer over a cotton shirt and navy shorts teeny enough to show off her enviable legs, shod in nude suede Louboutins. “Full” is, of course, a relative term. Mortimer Gaghan has expanded her smattering of breezy shirts and shirtdresses to an eight-piece collection that now includes some tailoring, like the aforementioned jacket plus a sweet woolen pinafore, both with checked linings. Her new shirts veer into slightly more femme territory: a ruffled Victorian and a pussy-bowed silk number. But don’t be fooled. Menswear is where Mortimer Gaghan’s fashion heart is—she admits to raiding the closet of her husband, the writer-director Stephen Gaghan, who surveyed last night’s scene of girls-and-clothes with brother-in-law Topper Mortimer, Tinsley’s better half, by his side. So, could Minnie, who’s already in 25 stores, have plans to be, say, the next Tory? Not for the moment. The new mom is going slow and steady. “I like the size of [the business],” she said. “I feel like I’m still learning about what I’m doing.”
