Yea, Nay, Or Eh? Stepping Out In Sync At Giorgio Armani

-------

A few days ago, we called your attention to Miuccia Prada’s his-’n'-hers dressing, at her Spring 2011 men’s and women’s shows. Looks like there’s one famous couple that listened. Armani fans George Clooney and his girlfriend, Elisabetta Canalis, hit the designer’s runway show in Milan today in corresponding suits. Mr. Clooney opted for a peak-lapel number in dark navy with a rakish, tie-free black shirt, while his lady friend chose a shawl-collared one-button black tux with piped trousers. On some duos, this might seem too matchy-matchy for comfort, but we think George and Elisabetta have got the paired look down pat; the different proportions of their two looks, and the feminine jeweled touches on Canalis’, keep them from looking the same. Could it be that the couple that suit-shops together, stays together? Let us know what you think in the comments, below.

The Gaultier-Chris Brown Mash-up; Annie and Demi in Front of the Cameras; And More…

Louis Vuitton’s “Icons” campaign soldiers on, and the latest star is one who usually finds herself behind the camera: Annie Leibovitz. Apparently, she used her fee to hire another celeb to co-star with her, Mikhail Baryshnikov. No offense, Annie, but do you maybe have a better use for that check? [WWD]

The ladies at Jezebel line up Demi Moore’s Photoshopped fragrance ad with one of hubby Ashton’s twitpics to come to the following conclusion: Demi’s gorgeous; Photoshop’s bad. We’d say stop the presses but, y’know, we don’t have any. [Jezebel]

And shoppers, to your marks: Jonathan Saunders for Topshop hits the chain’s Soho store today. [Nitrolicious]

The Love-ly Homeowner: Courtney Snags Village Pad for Daughter

-------

Turns out Marc Jacobs isn’t the only one who’s been house-hunting in the West Village. At the after-party for last night’s Paramount Pictures and Cinema Society-sponsored screening of The Lovely Bones, Courtney Love told us a new place is on her Christmas list, too—not for herself, but for her daughter. “I’m getting my child a mortgage,” she said. “She split time between New York and L.A. growing up, but she’s a New Yorker. It’s a house in the West Village, which is all she wants in life.” Good to know young Frances Bean can knock on Marc and Lorenzo’s door for the proverbial cup of sugar, but as for Love herself, she’s hitting the road: “I gotta go on tour,” she said. Well, she’ll have a place to crash in New York, at least.

Meanwhile, Susan Sarandon—who plays a whiskey-swigging, chain-smoking grandmother in the film—made a recent real-estate deal herself: The actress is one of the backers of the recently opened SPiN Ping-Pong club, though she’s the first to admit she’s not yet a pro. “I’m not good. I’m more of a propagandist than a player,” the actress admitted. Others have apparently been less modest. “I’d like to see George Clooney play Jamie Foxx, because they both think they’re really good. Ed Norton has also said he’s really good,” Sarandon said with a sly smile. Now there’s a tourney we’d line up to see.

Cindy Crawford Is A Fan of London Street Style

-------

Is holding the title of Supermodel like that of POTUS? Like, you never really lose it? It’s certainly true of Cindy Crawford—clad in drapey, short Alexander Wang—whose super powers commanded the room last night at London’s Almada club to launch the Omega Constellation collection. “I rarely come across the pond,” she said. “But I definitely want to see some sights, visit Frieze—and support George.” That would be Clooney, and the supe did exactly that the night before walking the red carpet in twinned black dresses with the actor’s current girlfriend (and therefore current object of our fascination) Elisabetta Canalis for the Fantastic Mr. Fox premiere.

Crawford attracted an interesting mix: Lily Allen, model Tolula Adeyemi, Spice Girl Melanie Brown with husband Stephen Belafonte, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Rhys Ifans, Jasmine Guinness, Piers Morgan, former Queen drummer Roger Taylor, Ben Grimes, Marina Hanbury, and Matthew Mellon’s ex Noelle Reno. As if Crawford’s physical presence wasn’t enough, the room was dominated by massive screens flickering with images of the model. But she was more down-to-earth than her celluloid counterpart and happy to chat. “There’s a vibe in London,” she said en route to a private dinner hosted by Clooney. “[There’s] fantastic people-watching. I like to see what everyone is wearing, how they accessorize. For that alone it’s worth it to come.” In that case, see you next year at LFW? Crawford responded with a laugh, “Don’t count me out yet.”

Milan’s Great Escapes: Lago Maggiore

-------


Milan is one of the world’s best transit towns, a fact that more than makes up for its never-ending traffic and the smog that blankets the city. Style.com offers mini-itineraries of interesting places to visit that are close enough to the city to be accessible but far enough away to give you a break.

Lago Maggiore may not be framed by Lake Como’s dramatic mountains or have the celebrity pull of a heavyweight like Clooney, but for those in search of simple pleasures, this is your place. For your first stop, head from Stresa directly to the lake’s islands. The Isola dei Pescatori is easy to reach; it has a small shingle beach for swimmers and the island’s Hotel Verbano offers a shaded terrace restaurant with beautiful views of the lake. The magnificent Borromean Islands are a short traghetto ride away. The loveliest island is the Isola Bella, whose palace and terraced gardens are open to visitors. If you have more time to spare, head across the lake to the Eremo di Santa Caterina, a thirteenth-century stone monastery slotted precariously into the cliff face. Climb up to see beautiful portico-framed vistas, and look out for the mummified Saint Alberto Besozzi inside.
