In The Backseat With Louis Vuitton, Summer Crochet Hits The Streets (Literally), Gaga On Top, And More…
“Who wouldn’t want to be this gorgeous young woman in the back seat of this beautiful car?” asks Marc Jacobs of his upcoming Fall Louis Vuitton ad campaign. Answer: no one. Even the dogs came barking to be in the picture, although only seven of them made the final cut to sit on the laps of the six up-and-coming models, including Daphne Groeneveld, Anais Pouliot, and Fei Fei Sun.

She designs, she dictates trends, she… sings? The eternal Coco Chanel gets revived (literally) in Coco the musical, which comes to London’s Sadler’s Wells this June. Katherine Hepburn played the lady in the original Broadway production; Sara Kestelman, a Royal Shakespeare Company and National Theater alum, takes the part this time around. [Vogue U.K.]
We’re in the mood for summer crochet, and so, it turns out, are a group of guerrilla artists. Sidewalk cracks, park benches, and telephones worldwide are being dressed up—”yarn bombed” as they call it—by graffiti grandmas. We’d say this is far and away in the lead for oddest summer trend. Anyone want to step up to unseat it? [NYT]
Red is the heart and sole of the Louboutin brand. Although Christian Louboutin secured rights to the rouge sole back in 2008, he’s currently in court defending his brand’s trademark. It’s (sorry!) no shoe-in case just yet. [AdWeek]
She wasn’t “Born This Way,” but Lady Gaga has earned 32 million friends (on Facebook), 10 million Little Monsters (Twitter followers), $4.5 billion (in the last 12 months), and now, the top spot on Forbes’ Celebrity 100 List. Now that Gaga has knocked Oprah as the reigning queen of the list, we can safely say the world has officially gone Gaga. [Forbes]
Fashionologie begins compiling the Fall ’11 ad campaign rumors and placements. Word from the fashion forums is that Kate Moss won’t be in Vuitton (a group of younger girls, possibly including Daphne Groeneveld, left, and Fei Fei Sun, may be instead), Mert & Marcus’ ads for Versace might star Saskia de Brauw, and Ralph Lauren will likely tap Sui He, the Chinese model who was the first Asian girl to open his show, for his label’s spots.

And congrats to Tess Giberson—the downtown designer has just opened her first shop, on Soho’s Crosby Street. [WWD]
Riccardo Tisci is famous for his meticulous casting: Rumor around Paris during men’s fashion week was that he begins casting his shows as far as six months in advance to get the perfect mix. No surprise, then, that the models who hit the boards for his Fall 2011 men’s show (including a few ladies, like Daphne Groeneveld, Saskia de Brauw, and Joan Smalls) made for one of the best lineups of the week. His Givenchy Haute Couture collection was shown in Paris today, and he’s attempted another casting coup: using only Asian models, including Ming Xi, Fei Fei Sun, Liu Wen, Shu Pei Qin, Du Juan, Ai Tominaga, and Tao Okamoto. Check it out above, and check back shortly for the full Givenchy Fall 2011 couture show.
