On Set With Doutzen Kroes, Louis Vuitton Exposes Its Seams, Anna Dello Russo’s Packing Tips, And More…


Doutzen Kroes, coming soon to a theater near you—provided you live in the Netherlands.

Louis Vuitton is known for its elaborate stores and window displays around the globe and now, in a new book titled Louis Vuitton: Architecture & Interiors, the luxury brand reveals the details of its foundations.

Fashionologie begins compiling the Fall ’11 ad campaign rumors and placements.

Doutzen’s Boy Is All Atwitter, Girls (Like Helena Bonham Carter) Just Wanna Have Fun, Wang And The Gang In The Running For GQ‘s Best New Menswear Designer In America, And More…


Baby’s first rattle, sure. Baby’s first Gucci, maybe. But baby’s first Twitter account? Believe it: Phyllon Joy Gorré—the newborn offspring of Doutzen Kroes and husband Sunnery James—is now tweeting. [@PhyllonJoy]

And in other Twitter revelations today, H&M delighted fans by announcing via tweet that it’s planning to open its virtual doors to U.S. e-commerce circa 2012. [@HMUSA]

Helena Bonham Carter weathered criticism for her Golden Globes look, a Vivienne Westwood gown with which she paired mismatched shoes. “Why not wear mismatching shoes? Who says we can’t? I was just having fun. For me, fashion is all about fantasy and putting unlikely things together,” Bonham Carter told People StyleWatch. She even went so far as to suggest she’d do the fashionably unthinkable: wear the same dress to the Oscars. [People StyleWatch]

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]

After a busy Christmas season,, Netflix, L.L.Bean, and more look set to have a very happy new year. The e-tailers were among those cited by a new survey as providing the best customer satisfaction—and research indicates that it’s customer service, not prices, that truly dictate online sales. [WWD]

Congrats to Reese Witherspoon, who announced yesterday that she is engaged to her agent boyfriend, Jim Toth. [Gawker]

And even if you don’t speak Dutch, we bet you can figure out Doutzen Kroes’ commercial for Douwe Egberts coffee. In 2003, as the ad has it, Doutzen’s granny has a great cup of coffee and a great idea—that @MissDK should hit the catwalk. Check it out below. [Styleite]
