Yea, Nay, Or Eh: Should She Switch?

-------

Jennifer Aniston took to the carpet in L.A. last night for the premiere of her new maternity comedy of errors (a 2010 genre if ever there was one), The Switch. Aniston has a mixed history with red-carpet looks, and if you ask us, she could have dialed up the glamour a bit for her new premiere. Her two-tone Spring ’10 Lanvin dress flatters her ultra-toned figure but doesn’t bring much spark. (Though the contrast-color zip on the side gives a little bit of pop that’s hard to make out in a front view.) With loose hair and strappy, nude sandals, the whole look feels more dinner-and-a-movie than star tour. (Though we love the Ferragamo croc clutch—even if it threatens to upstage its owner.) What do you think? Is less more, or should Jen have done like her on-screen alter ego and switched?

Le Styliste, C’est Chic, a Gilt-y Pleasure, and More…

-------

You’re young, you’re French, you’re an in-demand stylist—what else would you do but design a covetable line or capsule collection? Women’s Wear Daily profiles the filles (including L’Officiel jewelry editor Emily Minchella, pictured at left with partner Caroline Baltz Nielsen, of Leetha) who’ve found time to multitask and add jewelry, cashmere, apparel, and intimates to their résumés. Us, we’re just trying to find time to pick up the dry-cleaning. [WWD]

City Mouse, meet Country Mouse. London designer Anya Hindmarch will be designing four jackets for Britain’s heritage Barbour brand, available this fall. [Vogue U.K.]

U.S. girls, meanwhile, should set their clocks now. Alex Wang’s covetable accessories hit Gilt Groupe at noon today for a rare sale. Boss, we’re feeling an 11:50 a.m. “meeting” coming on… [Racked]

English beauty retailer Superdrug commissioned a poll to find the “Beauty Icon of the Decade,” and the results are in: It’s Angelina Jolie. Team Aniston, you’ve lost this round—but Jen did come in second place. (We’ve got a few suggestions of our own, too…) [NYDN]

Blasblog: La Mamounia Rocks the Casbah

-------

Says noted anthropologist Jacquetta Wheeler: “Moroccans by nature love to party. So give them a real reason to celebrate and a budget, and we’ve got a show on our hands.” She wasn’t kidding. No expense was spared and no partygoer—a roll that included Wheeler, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Aniston, Orlando Bloom, and Adrien Brody—disappointed at the weekend reopening of La Mamounia, Marrakech’s legendary hotel. (Just getting those celebs to northern Africa must’ve cost a small fortune.) The entertainment included opera singer José Carreras (Gwynnie’s favorite part) and a Cirque du Soleil spectacle that involved a contortionist, feathered exotic dancers, fire-eaters, and men wrapped in Christmas lights running up and down the sides of the hotel (Aniston’s fave), but with a crowd this multitalented, no surprise that the guests tried their hand at performing, too. Every night ended at the leopard-heavy downstairs lounge, the Churchill Bar, where Daria Werbowy, Matthew Williamson, Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, and Carine Roitfeld belted out everything from Grease show tunes to Sarah McLaughlin. “Leopard carpet, cognac, and a piano? I think I found my new favorite bar ever,” Werbowy said. Next stop, Moroccan Idol?

24-Hour Party People

-------


The ninth annual 24-Hour Plays was running late last night, but at the 25th hour, all was forgiven. As its name suggests, the star-studded casts had only 24 hours to meet with writers and directors to draft scripts and madly rehearse before hitting the stage with six ten-minute plays. So what’s 60 minutes more among famous friends?

Emmy Rossum confessed before the clock started that she had been a bit nervous, but gamely added, “I think the not knowing is the really exciting part.” To a packed house that included P. Diddy and Cassie, the cast didn’t disappoint. Demi Moore played against type as a nerdy, glasses-wearing sister. (The new Ingrid Bergman pen from Montblanc, the evening’s sponsor, had a cameo role as a prop.) Sam Rockwell played a convincing five-year-old and Naomi Watts his mom. And who knew Brooke Shields could carry such a wicked German dominatrix accent while doling out raunchy advice to Jennifer Aniston?

At the after-party, Eva Mendes was relieved it was over but loved the rush: “It was my first time onstage and now I think I’m addicted!” In the roped-off section, naturally, Demi and Ashton (a fellow 24-hour performer) chatted with friends, while Watts and Rockwell were in a more raucous mood—the duo jumped on the banquettes to dance. There was good reason to celebrate: The evening raised $350,000 for the Urban Arts Partnership to fund arts programs in NYC schools.

Fakers Shut Down, Jen Shot Down, And More…

Attention, shoppers: $1.6 million in counterfeit goods are no longer available for purchase. You can thank U.S. Customs and Border Protection for that one. [WWD]

Bradley Cooper maintains that he and Jennifer Aniston are just friends. This intel pales in comparison to the fact that Mr. Cooper is fluent in French. [People]

As part of her intern duties, Chanel Iman clocked some quality time in the Teen Vogue fashion closet last week. Somehow she missed coffee-run duty. [Fashionologie]
