Tamara Mellon Leaves Big Jimmy Choo Shoes To Be Filled, Cornelia Guest Ditches Her Fur For PETA, Feng Shui Jewelry, And More…

Elle Macpherson, Stella McCartney, and Helen Mirren are asking people in the U.K. to lend a hand—and a coat—to help keep the elderly warm this winter. As part of Age U.K.’s “Donate a Coat” initiative, the trio is hoping people will donate a coat to help prevent the estimated 200 deaths that take place in Britain every year due to the chilly temperatures.

Cornelia Guest, the daughter of C.Z. Guest and polo champion Winston Frederick Churchill Guest, is PETA’s newest pinup girl. Guest has exchanged her fur coats in favor of animal-friendly clothes and accessories, like her new business venture, a collection of vegan handbags. [WWD]
Stylist and author of Feng Shui Chic, Carole Shashona, has created a line of good-energy jewelry. In the collection, there’s a chi-om, “meant to be a ‘portable energizer,’ and the turtle is ideal for urbanites who tend to carry their lives on their backs.” Her line is available on her site and her candle collection is set to go on sale at Barneys this winter.

A leather jacket donated by Sarah Jessica Parker, a TwentyTwelve playsuit from Sienna Miller’s closet, and a pink polka-dot bikini designed and modeled by Elizabeth Hurley are just three of the covetable lots in Celebrity Boutique, a new online charity auction that opens today. All proceeds from the ten-day sale will go toward funding research and treatment at London’s Royal Marsden hospital, an institution that, as well as being the world’s first dedicated cancer facility, has some serious fashion credentials: British Vogue editor in chief Alexandra Shulman is among its trustees. A word of advice: If you’re eyeing the black PVC pants Elle Macpherson donned for the season premiere of Britain’s Next Top Model in June, be ready for a little tailoring. Hospital insiders have been snapping pics of themselves in the donated clothes to post on the charity’s Twitter feed, and one not-particularly-short staffer confided glumly: “Elle’s trousers literally came up to my nose.”

In case any further proof was needed that cleavage is back, here’s LOVE‘s first video for its iPad app, debuting any day now from the iTunes store, alongside its fourth issue, “The Gorgeous Issue” (out now). Katie Grand styled Elle Macpherson in Bottega Veneta, Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, Nina Ricci, and Macpherson’s own line of lingerie. Macpherson channels sixties sweater girls in a hip-shaking short shot by Sharif Hamza, who’s lensed editorials for Interview and international editions of Vogue, and videos for Dior Homme and Dazed + Confused. Aside from reminding us all why Elle’s now and forever “The Body,” it’s also one of the better arguments we’ve seen for the rat’s-nest bouffant. Check out the exclusive debut, below.
In case you were getting bored with the Box’s usual lineup (Siamese twin pole dancers? again?), fear not, change is afoot. [Page Six]
