Steven Meisel shot the Spring ’12 Prada ad campaign in the most sensible place for the hot-rodding, fins-and-taillights collection: a gas station. Now here’s your first look at the accompanying video campaign, with Natasha Poly, Elise Crombez, Guinevere Van Seenus, Meghan Collison, Ymre Stiekema, and newcomer Katryn Kruger all strutting their stuff. Baby, you can drive my car.
The Gucci Murderess Would Rather Stay In Prison Than Work, Hailee Steinfeld Out At Miu Miu, Doo-Ri Designs For Macy’s, And More…
Patrizia Reggiani, the woman who murdered her ex-husband, Gucci heir Maurizio Gucci, has been in prison for 29 years, and it looks like she would like it to stay that way. She reportedly declined an Italian court’s offer of day release because she would have to get a job as part of the deal. She told judges she would “rather cry in a Rolls than be happy on a bicycle.” [Vogue U.K.]
Miu Miu has swapped out its 13-year-old campaign star Hailee Steinfeld. In her place, they have picked 34-year-old model Guinevere Van Seenus for Resort 2012. [Telegraph]
Macy’s is giving Target a run for its money in the designer collaboration department. Giambattista Valli’s collection is set to bow next week. Up next: Doo.Ri for Impulse, in stores February 15. [WWD]
What’s on the minds of British men these days? Wool flat caps. The Telegraph reports that flat cap sales are up by 75 percent so far this fall at Marks & Spencer. The reason for the surge in flat cap popularity “remains unclear.” [Telegraph]
When Roberto Cavalli opened the doors of his first store in Saint-Tropez four decades ago, as Tim Blanks writes, “it wasn’t much more than a fishing village.” Times have changed—to say the least—but Cavalli has kept on, outfitting generations of jet-set socials in all the feathers, ruffles, python, leather, and leopard print they could handle. (And as it turns out, they could handle a lot.) To celebrate his 40 years in the business, the designer is putting out Roberto Cavalli, a collection of images, shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, of some of the world’s most beautiful women in his clothes. (Lara Stone, left, Carolyn Murphy, Sasha Pivovarova, and Sigrid Agren are just a few of the ladies represented.) On the eve of the book’s publication and his 40th anniversary bash in Paris, Cavalli checked in with Style.com to talk stars and style. And keep reading below for our exclusive slideshow of images from the book.
You’re celebrating your 40th anniversary in fashion. What’s the biggest change you’ve seen in fashion over that time?
With the invention of technology and the Internet, everything has become much more instantaneous now, which is exciting. I love that no matter where you are in the world, as long as you have access to a computer, you have access to fashion, an area that was previously very closed off. Now, we have a rapidly growing Facebook page and a new e-commerce site, which is doing extremely well.
The book is full of fabulous women who’ve worn your creations. Do you have one who is a particular favorite, whom you love to dress?
I have so many friends, clients, and fans that I love to see in my clothing, but just this week I have had the pleasure of dressing Heidi Klum, Leona Lewis, Taylor Swift, and Rachel Bilson while they are in Milan and Paris. They all looked stunning.
Are there any women you haven’t yet dressed that you’d like to?
I don’t think the world will ever run out of beautiful women that I want to dress!
The entire book was shot by Mert & Marcus. What do you like best about collaborating with them in particular?
Mert & Marcus do incredible work and I’m always impressed by how they can capture beauty, energy, and passion. What I liked most about working with them was the confidence in knowing that the final product would turn out fantastic, which it has.
Forty years in business—no mean feat. What do you hope to do in your next 40 years in fashion?
I hope to have another 40 just as wild and exciting as the past. I want the Roberto Cavalli name to live on and continue to ride the wave of success.

Rodarte’s Spring 2010 collection took its cues from an invented myth about the California condor, and in a new short film premiering on Nowness.com this Monday, it’s taking flight—if on man-made rather than natural wings. Aanteni, directed by Todd Cole, was shot in a California jet-propulsion lab, with Guinevere Van Seenus decked out in the Spring goods and a soundtrack by L.A.-adored noise rockers No Age. The bird’s the word—and we’ve got your first look, above.
“It’s just like a glass house,” squealed one of the guests at Resurrection co-owner Mark Haddawy’s always-impressive Harpel residence in Los Angeles last night. A John Lautner-designed glass house, mind you, which proved an interesting setting for Katy Rodriguez and her cast of “Mujeres Verdaderas” (Real Women) modeling a Mexican-inspired Spring ’09 collection. “I’m so glad I chose to do something like this rather than just another runway show” said Rodriguez. The Frida Kahlo-doppelganger models were decked out in Rodriguez’s signature A-line shape, this season complete with twists, tucks, and draping, in a color palette of red, green, and black. And on the other side of the windowpane, guests such as Raymond Pettibon, Lisa Eisner, Tony Alva, Jeremy Scott, Jasmin Shokrian, Lisa Love, Arianne Phillips, and Guinevere Van Seenus enjoyed a view of a different kind: Mulholland Drive at dusk.
