We Need To Talk About Tilda

-------

Tilda Swinton has had a longstanding gig as the face for the Italian fine jewelry label Pomellato, and earlier this month, her latest effort for the brand—the Spring ad campaign—was unveiled. For the shoot, the actress decamped to the Greek island of Serifos with lensman Jeff Burton, who has photographed the likes of Gemma Ward and Natalia Vodianova. Here, Style.com has an exclusive behind-the-scenes glimpse at Swinton (wearing Pomellato’s latest baubles) and Burton at work. An image from the official ad campaign, below.

Lanvin Joins The Rodeo (Drive, That Is),
The Latest Mag Move, And More…

The Lanvin juggernaut rolls on: Alber Elbaz has opened the brand’s fourth U.S. flagship on Los Angeles’ Rodeo Boulevard. “L.A. is one of my favorite places in America,” he told Women’s Wear Daily. [WWD]

If you’ve been following glossy moves and trades the way that some follow sports—and we’ve noticed that lately, people are—you’ll be interested to hear that Lagardere has sold Elle and over 100 of its other international titles to Hearst for 651 million euros (about $887 million). [Reuters]

Gemma Ward opens up about her relationship with Heath Ledger in an interview with the Australian press: “There was no one like him—and no one will ever be like him,” she said. “I’m just so grateful I got to meet him and get as close as I did with him.” [Fashion Copious]

And sometimes a hat is not just a hat—like, say, when it suggests a dynastic transfer of dictatorial power in North Korea. According to a former North Korean official quoted in a South Korean newspaper, a recent portrait of Kim Jong-il’s son, Kim Jong-un, wearing the same furry hat as his father means that he’s the next in line for command. “The hat was customized by a foreign master craftsman using top-quality otter fur,” Chosun Ilbo has it. “It’s an unwritten rule that nobody else can wear such a hat , so if Kim Jong-un is also wearing one, it means he has now reached almost the same status as his father.” [Gawker via Racked]

January Heats Up; Anna Dello Russo: The Early Years; Gemma Ward At Sea; And More…

January Jones’ first campaign for Versace has leaked, and she’s no repressed housewife here. The woman best known as Mrs. Betty Draper Francis was shot by Mario Testino in nothing but a bag and a pair of shoes. “I am always on the lookout for the next Versace blonde,” Donatella Versace told WWD. “She is chic and elegant but deeply sensual, too.” Sterling Cooper is reportedly scrambling to pick up the Versace account for next season. [WWD]

Speaking of spokesmodels: If you’ve ever wanted to see an 18-year-old Anna Dello Russo in an Italian TV ad for ricotta cheese, well, here you go. (And kudos on your ultra-specific, exquisite tastes.) [Fashionista]

The trailer for the latest in the seemingly endless Pirates of the Caribbean series is out, with Johnny Depp once again leading the charge as a Keef-inspired pirate. But this time around, we’re just as interested in Gemma Ward, who has a cameo as a man-eating (figuratively, we think) mermaid. Check her out at 1:52 and 2:07. [Fashionologie]

The outdoorsmen trend in menswear has made for a lot of hunting jackets designed by guys who don’t know a rifle from a raffle. But Alabama-based Billy Reid ain’t one of ‘em—as this video shot by Gilt Manual attests, he knows his way around his firearms. [Gilt Manual]

Collab department, item 1: +J returns! Jil Sander is working on a second line for Uniqlo. [Catwalk Queen]

Collab department, item 2: Stella McCartney is coming back to the Gap for Spring 2010. This time we’re rooting for some items in XXL. [WWD]

Collab department, head-scratcher: Michael Stipe and Maison Martin Margiela have made a very mini, very limited-edition mix tape for you to wear any which way. This satisfies all of our accessory needs. [Racked]

Perhaps you’ve noticed there’s an androgyny trend afoot? Well, it’s trickled down to little kids, who are “experimenting across gender lines,” and has made its way to Australia, where men are wearing tights. This could be the signifier of a huge cultural shift, or an indication that some men just really like to wear tights. [NYT]

Emerging trend: boudoir photography. “The aim is to create a portrait that is more Matisse or Renoir than Hustler.” Duly noted. [Washington Post]

Lauren Conrad, original star of The Hills and New York Times best-selling author, is releasing a style guide. How we got dressed before this is really a mystery. [People]

Frost French reportedly wants Gemma Ward for their next ad campaign. We just got all nostalgic for when she used to rule the runway. [Fashionista]

Luella’s Tough Break, Jesus’ Family, And More…

-------

Recession scorecard: girly Brit department. Luella Bartley announced today that Luella has stopped trading after its global licensee withdrew its investments in the label. Even more heartbreaking? Spring 2010 orders will not be filled. [Vogue U.K.]

Before Tom Ford designed Tom Ford, he designed for Yves Saint Laurent. And he hated it. [Page Six]

Alicia Keys is hiding messages in her new (and first) line of jewelry, created in collaboration with Gisèle Theriault. The affirmations are courtesy of Dr. Masaru Emoto, the controversial Japanese author of The Hidden Messages in Water. How positively metaphysical. [WWD]

Madonna is not meeting Jesus’ parents on her upcoming trip to Brazil. Yeah, that was a really great sentence to write. [Page Six]

The 25th anniversary of the British Fashion Awards is upon us, and the British Fashion Council has created a new award for “an individual who embodies the spirit of London and who is an ambassador for the capital’s fashion industry.” Yes, fashion really is like high school. [Telegraph U.K.]

Gemma Ward has no plans to return to modeling anytime soon. So stop picking on her! [News Au]
