The model baby boom continues: Doutzen Kroes and Sunnery James welcomed baby boy Phyllon (pronounced Fillen) today in Amsterdam. Victoria’s Secret better look into a daycare center. [Modelinia]
Darren Aronofsky and Vincent Cassel have swapped ballet for perfume. The Black Swan director and his star collaborated on a video for Yves Saint Laurent’s La Nuit de L’Homme, a manly fragrance, sans doute. [WWD]
Oscar de la Renta has had less than fawning things to say about the First Lady’s fashion choices in the past, and his response to her recent red and black Alexander McQueen dress was no different. “My understanding is that the visit was to promote American-Chinese trade…. Why do you wear European clothes?” he asked WWD. Meanwhile, the frock in question has a battalion of fans, from Cathy Horyn to Robin Givhan. MObama: 1, ODLR: 0? [WWD]
The reign of Patti Smith rages on. The eternally cool rocker-poet is up for the National Book Award tomorrow night—Just Kids, her memoir of her early years with photographer Robert Mapplethorpe, is a finalist for the nonfiction category—and she’s the inspiration for yet another editorial in the new issue of VMan, on stands November 11. Freja Beha Erichsen takes the role of Patti (left) and Christian Brylle does a fairly convincing Mapplethorpe—all the more convincing because he actually shot the spreads himself. [VMan]
Turning ten is almost on trend these days! First there was Style.com, then 10, then SHOWstudio, and now Marc by Marc Jacobs is celebrating a decade in the business. WWD checks in with Marc Jacobs international president Robert Duffy—the mastermind behind MMJ—who reminisces on the early years, the inspiration behind it, and why he’s never going to spend $300 for a pair of jeans. In honor of the anniversary, a capsule collection of the best Marc by Marc pieces from the past ten years hits the floor this spring. [WWD]
Words of wisdom from her diva-ness, Iman: “Alexander Wang is one of my favorites. But he is like my daughter. He is like 12.” [Harper’s Bazaar via Racked]
Words of wisdom from her other diva-ness, Vogue Italia‘s Franca Sozzani: “I personally think that TV shows about fashion are generally boring.” [Styleite]
And in sad news: Fashion favorite Rachel Weisz and her partner of nine years, Darren Aronofsky, are splitting up. Apparently, they’ve been separated for months and some sources say that Weisz is currently dating Daniel Craig. [TMZ]
Natalie Portman is in Venice today, for the world premiere of her new film, the Darren Aronofsky-directed ballet drama, The Black Swan. Portman’s friends Kate and Laura Mulleavy of Rodarte designed the costumes for the flick, so three guesses who Natalie opted to wear to its premiere. The claret-hued silk tulle Rodarte gown—with a Swarovski crystal-encrusted bodice for extra shine—is pure, old Hollywood glamour; Rodarte is often known for moody, goth-tinged frocks, but this sweeping number looks borrowed from the closet of Veronica Lake. All to the good, we’d say. Portman finishes the look with an upswept chignon,
sheer red footless stockings, and subtle T-strap heels. We’d call it a red-carpet win. How about you?
Update: The people have spoken—and corrected our error. Closer investigation reveals the tulle on Portman’s foot is part of her dress, not her stockings. Side note: Can somebody get on making sheer, red, footless stockings ASAP? We want a pair—enough even to hallucinate them.
