Karlie For Dior, Gucci x Three, And More…

-------

Karlie Kloss is Dior‘s new face, a tidbit John Galliano offered up when he was late for his own party in Paris on Monday night. We guess casting the Spring campaign is as good an excuse as any. [WWD]

At Ann Taylor, Cintra Wilson finds Lanvin‘s first cousin, Balenciaga‘s love child, and a Louis Vuitton castoff. Not bad for under $250. [NYT]

Move over, Audrey. Angelina Jolie is in talks to star in the next big fashion film— Gucci, a big-budget thriller about the murder of Maurizio Gucci. [Variety]

Speaking of Gucci, now they’ve got an iPhone app. Yes, Angie, online shopping can be considered character research. [WWD]


Wait, there’s more: Mark Ronson’s sneakers for (you guessed it) Gucci are actually more like boat shoes. They’ll be in the Crosby Street pop-up on Friday. BYO dock. [Racked]

MObama’s Art, Karl’s Clothes, And More…

-------

Cintra Wilson reviews Isaac Mizrahi’s new shop (remember, he’s not calling it a store) and ends up reviewing Isaac himself. He’s the “Falstaff of the fashion world,” she writes, which, we think, is a sneaky way of saying he’s lovably loud. [NYT]

Turns out there was no truth to the rumor circulating earlier this week that Rome would replace Milan as the seat of Italy’s fashion shows. In fact, it’s “nonsense!” But Rome may reprise its own fashion show—Donna Sotto Le Stelle (“Woman Under the Stars”)—where a bunch of models would “[teeter] down the Spanish Steps.” Ooh, sounds so fun and dangerous! [WWD]

What with the threesome going on behind him, you may have missed Karl Lagerfeld’s jacket Monday night for his bow after the Chanel show. Apparently it was from Calvin Klein. Does this make Italo Zucchelli the new Hedi Slimane? [WWD]

Former Emanuel Ungaro designer Giambattista Valli weighed in on the house’s latest collection: “An actress ought to be an actress, and a fashion designer ought to be a fashion designer.” We wonder who he means? [FWD]

File under awww. Alexander Wang went to his first Paris show. [WWD]

Finally, now we can gush over MObama’s taste in fashion and art. [NYT]

Charlotte Ronson Fires Up The Grill

-------

“I figured a barbecue was a good way to celebrate the end of summer,” Charlotte Ronson explained at her blowout fête at the Chelsea Piers last night. Given the heat index, the event didn’t much feel like a last hurrah. What with the fried chicken, burgers, cotton candy, and ice cream on offer, the party, given in honor of the I Heart Ronson Fall collection for JCPenney, came off more like a conspicuously haute state fair. One where Champagne is served instead of pork rinds, and where guests are invited to take home, say, a body-con top with cutouts, rather than check out the latest in ag technology. Nevertheless, Fall was definitely in the air: Ronson admitted that she’s been burning the midnight oil prepping for fashion week, and Chris Benz made the scene along with buddy Eva Amurri, despite similar preoccupations. Inside, Byrdie Bell, Fabiola Beracasa, and Jennifer Creel awaited. (Socials! In the city! In August!) And of course, the full complement of Ronsons turned up—Sam and Mark worked the decks, Ann Dexter-Jones worked the crowd. And for what it’s worth, Cintra Wilson: Despite the Penney’s imprimatur, pretty much everyone in attendance was fashionably slender. Then again, what with all the fried chicken and ice cream, maybe the department store is trying to fatten us New Yorkers up.

Is French prez Sarko passing Carla-inspired legislature? His newest decree promises free museum entry to Frenchies aged 25 and under and lifts a freeze on state funding for the performing arts. All of his bride’s soulful crooning must have gotten to him.

The New York Times‘ Cintra Wilson visits Sephora, and her tour is fraught with danger : “They are on the front line, in the trenches where Beauty is fought and won in the unending blitz of toxic urban stresses.” Who knew makeup could be so ugly?

We had decided not to report on the details, or, actually, the event of Josh Duhamel and Fergie’s wedding in Malibu last weekend, until we saw this. Congratulations to the couple for achieving a new high in cringe-worthy nuptial memorabilia.
