With Help from Grandma, Liv Tyler Minds Her Modern Manners


Dorothea Johnson, Liv TylerRules were meant to be broken. At least they were last night at Liv Tyler and her grandmother Dorothea Johnson’s holiday fete at Stella McCartney’s New York flagship, where they celebrated their new book on manners. “This blasts through any etiquette whatsoever!” exclaimed Tyler, pointing to her own late arrival and last-minute primping as the ultimate party “don’t.” However, handling life’s hiccups with grace is one tip offered in Modern Manners: Tools to Take You to the Top, which Johnson, etiquette expert extraordinaire, aptly called “a pick up and put down book.”

Holiday revelers including Alexandra Richards, Craig McDean, and Charlotte Ronson turned out to toast the tome. Noticeably absent was McCartney herself. (She’s in London gearing up for her annual Christmas lighting this evening.) But given the designer’s “impeccable manners,” attested Tyler, and the pair’s long-standing friendship, the choice in venue was not a surprising one.

On hand were delightful butternut squash bites and vodka rosemary cocktails, served by waiters in reindeer antlers and flashing Santa pins. Singing a range of holiday classics, an a cappella group later serenaded Tyler with “I Only Have Eyes for You,” only to have the McCartney-clad star join in.

Hoping to sample some cotton candy from the “Dos and Don’ts” sweets table at the back of the store was Hanneli Mustaparta. “I can’t reach; my skirt’s too short!” she exclaimed while leaning over some “Don’t raise your voice” cookies. While keeping her thigh-grazing frock modestly at bay, the rule breaker eventually managed to pluck some cotton candy from the jar.

Modern Manners: Tools to Take You to the Top is published by Random House and available at select bookstores as well as at Stella McCartney’s Greene Street store.

In the crowded world of street-style blogging, a group of young female bloggers are carving their own unique niche. Doubling as both photographers and subjects, women like Hanneli Mustaparta, Tamu McPherson, and Candice Lake are finding themselves in front of the camera as often as behind it. “[It's] an innate understanding of how other women like to be perceived or the message they’d like to communicate with their style,” McPherson says of her peers.

Speaking of Hanneli, Calvin Klein has enlisted the blogging phenom to lead the brand’s social media for the next few days. Hanneli will be taking over the Calvin Klein Twitter page before today’s show, uploading backstage and front-row photos. [WWD]

Hanneli’s New Assignment: Rag & Bone


For the latest in its DIY Campaign—which has already commissioned top models like Sasha Pivovarova, Karolina Kurkova, Miranda Kerr, and Abbey Lee Kershaw to turn the camera on themselves—Rag & Bone sought out a model whose catwalk years are mostly behind her. These days, Hanneli Mustaparta is more often found shooting top girls at shows and on the street—not that she’s lost an iota of the good looks that fueled her own modeling career. Mustaparta shot herself on the go in London, Paris, New York, and Sweden. “I wanted to shoot the pictures in a snapshot kind of way, to freeze the moments for a little bit,” she tells “The only way I could shoot them was to bring the bag with the Rag & Bone clothes with me while travelling to London and Paris for fashion week, then to Norway and Sweden and then back to New York again. Doing the shots was a nice break from the usual fashion week extravaganza.” Her favorite? “When I climbed up on the lamp post on the Pont Alexandre III bridge in Paris. That bridge inspires me every time I pass it in a car. It’s the prettiest bridge in Paris—and perhaps in the world.”

Fun In The Sun With Peter Pilotto?
We’ll Have To Wait And See


London’s Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos threw a little dinner party at the James here in New York last night before heading home today to prep their first-ever Resort collection for the brand. In advance of a round of appointments with editors and buyers earlier this week, the designing duo spent a few days in Miami soaking up the sun, and reports about their trip had the crowd in the new hotel’s penthouse, which included Hanneli Mustaparta (wearing the label, left), Kate Young, and Olivia Chantecaille, clamoring for one thing: bathing suits. Pilotto and De Vos promised they’ll be back in New York to show Resort, but as to whether or not they’ll come armed with bikinis in their signature digital prints, we’ll just have to wait until June.
