Louboutin And YSL Bare Their Soles, Sasha Pivovarova Teams Up With Timberlake, Remembering Amy Winehouse, And More…
The Christian Louboutin and Yves Saint Laurent red shoe battle continues. After a long day of examining YSL’s all-red pump from the Resort ’11 collection and comparing it to Louboutin’s trademark red soles, Judge Victor Marrero decided he needs more sole-searching time in order to make the final decision as to whether YSL is allowed to continue selling the pump.

Model Sasha Pivovarova is bringing sexy back to the big screen in her acting debut alongside Justin Timberlake. She will play JT’s mother-in-law in the sci-fi film In Time, which also stars Amanda Seyfried, Cillian Murphy, and Olivia Wilde. [Vogue.U.K.]
Could another supermodel also be making a move to movies? Miranda Kerr was seen meeting with Harvey Weinstein in New York last week, but it turns out they were discussing her role as judge on the upcoming Project Runway All-Stars series, along with Weinstein’s wife, Georgina Chapman of Marchesa.

The world continues to react to the sad news that nouveau soul singer Amy Winehouse was found dead in her London home on Saturday. The singer, famous for her beehive ‘do, thick black cat-eye liquid liner, and innumerable tattoos, made her mark on fashion when she served as a muse to Karl Lagerfeld for his December 2007 Chanel show (Lagerfeld called her a “style icon”) and wowed the crowd at Paris fashion week when she performed at the opening of Fendi’s Avenue Montaigne store.

New York menswear designer Simon Spurr has the traditional bona fides all lined up: a recent CFDA Award nomination, a growing international business, and a superstar (that’d be Justin Timberlake) who’s made Spurr the quasi-official label of his latest red-carpet tour. But his most recent accolade is an odder kind. The Simon Spurr sailing team is cleaning up tidily this Caribbean regatta season, scoring victories at Antigua sailing week, Les Voiles des Saint Barth, and the Pineapple Cup. “Almost everything we strive for in our brand exemplifies what it takes to be a winner on the race course—precision, planning, world-class craftsmanship,” Spurr said. Above, the Genuine Risk in picturesque action, enough to incite jealousy among the city-bound (especially now that the temperatures are climbing toward a hundred). Just a thought from a landlocked fashion editor: floating runway show, Spring 2012?
December 1 marks World AIDS Day, dedicated to raising awareness and funding to fight the disease, and the fashion industry has stepped up to help. This morning, designer (and amfAR chairman) Kenneth Cole—joined by Liza Minnelli, Cheyenne Jackson, and Project Runway competitor Mondo Guerra—rang the bell at the New York Stock Exchange, to commemorate the occasion. Celebs-turned-designers Kim Kardashian and Justin Timberlake and style icon Lady Gaga are among the many signing off of Twitter and Facebook until $1 million is raised for Alicia Keys’ Keep a Child Alive charity—a worthy gesture, even if the ads proclaiming “Kim Kardashian Is Dead” are a little macabre.
Looking for a way to help? As Michael Kors reminded us in our video, donating to God’s Love We Deliver—an organization which delivers meals to homebound people with HIV and AIDS—is a great way to show support at the holidays. (Click here for more information and to donate.) There are also plenty of things to buy. Giles Deacon’s collaboration with Happy Socks ($110, www.happysocks.com) goes on sale here today—at least 25 percent of the proceeds will go to the Elton John AIDS Foundation. If music’s more to your taste, pick up the hipster-endorsed Dark Was the Night album ($13.28, www.amazon.com), with contributions from fashion favorites Cat Power, Arcade Fire, Feist, David Byrne, and more—the Red Hot Organization, which sponsored the album, announced today that it has so far donated $1,000,000 to AIDS-related organizations. Finally, if you’re still feeling the classics, there’s always Maison Martin Margiela’s AIDS awareness tee, a staple of the house’s collections since 1994. You can get the standard version, a V-neck printed with the slogan “There Is More Action to Be Done to Fight AIDS Than to Wear This T-Shirt but It’s a Good Start,” at Margiela stores today; proceeds go to the French nonprofit AIDES. This year, the shirt is being issued in a special new style: in Japanese (pictured).
News about the Met ball continues to pour in: It’ll be a battle of the Mad women, when Stefano Pilati brings January Jones and Tommy Hilfiger brings Christina Hendricks. The redhead will be in good company; Hilfiger is also said to have Mick Jagger and L’Wren Scott, John Currin, Zoe Kazan, Peter Som, and Jimmy Fallon at his table. Michael Kors goes for the catwalkers, hosting Carolyn Murphy, Natasha Poly, Chanel Iman, and former model/actresses Brooke Shields and Diane Lane, and Ralph Lauren will sit with Taylor Swift, Jessica Biel, and Justin Timberlake.

Chez YSL—Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé’s apartment, that is—is on the market. $31.4 million buys you a library, a music room, a gym, and plenty of mirrors. [Hint Mag]
The latest addition to Louis Vuitton’s stable of “Icons” for its heritage ad campaign? If the rumors are to be believed, Bono. Coincidentally (or not), Vuitton parent LVMH recently acquired Bono and wife Ali Hewson’s eco-friendly Edun label. [WWD]
More from the Sex and the City 2 front: For her first appearance onscreen, SJP wears (gasp!) Halston. Costume designer Pat Field also had to contend with the Middle Eastern prohibition on exposed shoulders when working on the Abu Dhabi-set film. [L.A. Times via Racked]
And speaking of SATC2, its stars have signed multimillion-dollar contracts not to reveal plot secrets. “I’ve signed my life away to say I won’t tell. I thought: ‘You have got to be kidding! This isn’t state secrets, it’s the f****** script for a movie!” said Samantha, er, Kim Cattrall. (Throw in a couple f******s and it can be hard to tell the difference.) [Vogue U.K.]
