A Moment With J.Lo

-------

In between a nine-city American Idol tour and filming two movies, Jennifer Lopez found a little time to debut her first collection for mass retailer Kohl’s last month, inspired, she said, by “old Hollywood glamour combined with an upbringing in the Bronx.” Unlike the many celebrities trying their hand at fashion design, Jenny is not new to this particular block. Her previous line, Sweetface, launched in the early aughts and shuttered not long thereafter. Despite some high-profile runway theatrics—case in point, Naomi Campbell in a mink hat the size of a pool cover—the line was ultimately criticized for lacking substance behind its style. “I learned a lot from the other fashion endeavors that I did,” Lopez reflects. “What’s different this time is that I didn’t want to compromise quality and fit for price point and I knew there had to be a way to do it right.”

The collection retails from $22 to $150, and Lopez reports that it’s “doing amazingly well, thank God. People really like the fit, the quality, and the stylishness of the line—I couldn’t be more pleased.” She remained tight-lipped about the specifics of the upcoming deliveries for November and December, except to say that the former would include plenty of coral and army green. “I am not really a ‘black’ girl,” she said of her palette preferences. “I feel like other colors flatter you so much more.”

Paltrow’s Coach Shots To Debut, Giorgio Armani’s Favorite Is Jenny From The Block, Karl Is Coming Soon Macy’s, And More…

Actress, mom, author, singer, and chef are a few of Gwyneth Paltrow’s jobs these days. Photos from one of her newest roles, as the international ambassador of Coach, have finally been released, and she’s looking like the ultra American girl. The Peter Lindbergh-shot ads are set to roll out internationally, but unfortunately, they will never be in print on U.S. soil. [WWD]

Giorgio Armani truly knows how to make performers get a standing ovation, at least for the way they are dressed. The designer picked out his top five musical moments for W. Jennifer Lopez topped the list in her pink Armani Privé dress from the 2010 Academy Awards. [W]

Vivienne Westwood’s oldest son, Ben, is joining forces with Savile Row tailor Cad & the Dandy for a ready-to-wear collection. Westwood, who showed his menswear collection for the first time at last year’s London fashion week, plans to add his “signature edge” to the line, known for their bespoke suits. [Vogue.U.K.]

Soon you can get your Lagerfeld look at Macy’s. Although the collaborative efforts between Macy’s and the designer were officially announced last November, new details on the collection were released today. Expect high collars and “edgier, rock ‘n’ roll looks” available at Macy’s prices, hitting stores at the end of August. We have yet to find out if a version of Lagerfeld’s signature black gloves is included in the offerings. [WWD]

J.Lo’s L.A. Lunch

-------

Not all the fashion action is happening at Lincoln Center and Milk Studios this week. Yesterday, Gucci’s Frida Giannini was honored at UNICEF’s inaugural Women of Compassion Luncheon in L.A. before a crowd that included Camilla Belle, Mary J. Blige, and lensman Patrick Demarchelier.

Jennifer Lopez, now starring in the ads for Gucci’s children’s collection alongside twins Max and Emme, was on hand to present the designer with her award. “We actually met when I was about to pop, maybe two weeks before I gave birth at the big Malawi fundraiser she did with Madonna,” Lopez (left, with Giannini) told Style.com. “Every child in the world, in essence, could be yours,” she went on. “It makes you want to do things and work toward helping in any way you can, in every way you can.”

Giannini, for her part, stayed in town for the Grammys, then headed back to Milan. With less than two weeks before her Fall show, she dropped some hints about her impending collection. “You will see an explosion of color, which is very unusual for a Fall collection.”

New Year’s Eve: Where They Were When The Ball Dropped

-------

When 2010 became 2011, the real action (sorry, Snooki) was in Vegas, where Jay-Z and Coldplay’s Chris Martin teamed up for a special concert to open the new Marquee at the Cosmopolitan—a concert that drew wives Beyoncé and Gwyneth Paltrow as well as Kanye, Rihanna, Blake Lively, J. Lo, A-Rod, and more. Meanwhile, in Miami, Chloë Sevigny hosted a bash at the Mondrian with Miike Snow’s Andrew Wyatt that brought out Leigh Lezark and Leona Lewis, and Nur Khan partied at Kenmare and Don Hill’s in New York City, where his photographer pal Sante D’Orazio set up Sante’s Inferno.

Goo Goo, Ga Ga, Gucci?

-------

Apparently, you’re never too young to be be-Gucci’ed. Mommy’s favorite label is now catering to tots, too, with a new collection and a splashy, Mert and Marcus-shot ad campaign starring Max and Emme Anthony (and their mom, Jennifer Lopez). Gucci launched the new line yesterday with a kids’ party at its Fifth Avenue flagship, co-hosted by Hollywood mother Emily Mortimer (left). For the little guys, a photo booth, an art station, and a fully stocked candy counter was set up (no sticky fingers on the finery, please). And for parents like Dan Abrams, Amanda Brooks, race car driver Jeff Gordon, and rapper Fabolous, the full collection was on offer, from infant rompers to jeans, peacoats, and just-like-Dad’s striped sneakers.
