The Forbes list of the world’s 100 most powerful women is out, and fashion plates are well represented: There’s our impeccably attired FLOTUS, Michelle Obama (we like to think of her as Clotheshorse in Chief), holding strong at #1, as well as Carla Bruni-Sarkozy (#35), Heidi Klum (#39), Sarah Jessica Parker (#45), and Burberry CEO Angela Ahrendts (#97).

If you’ve ever wanted to see a Robert Geller “old-school French boudoir type of” stripper’s outfit, you’re in luck: It’s one of the many artist/designer collaboration projects at Move!, an exhibition and party that’ll be held at P.S. 1 at the end of October. (The collaborator in question is Ryan McNamara, the performance artist who’ll be learning to strip-dance, as well as soft-shoe and plié.) Proenza Schouler, Narciso Rodriguez, Rodarte, Italo Zucchelli, Terence Koh, Kalup Linzy, and Dan Colen are all also involved in the project, organized by Visionaire‘s Cecilia Dean and The New York Times‘ David Colman and capped off with a Visionaire Halloween party on the 31st.

Dolce & Gabbana made a short ad for their new Martini Gold vermouth, starring Italian sexpot Monica Bellucci. It’s almost enough to convince you to buy vermouth. [Fashionista]

Tim Hamilton shows his eponymous menswear in Paris these days, but the New York-based designer hasn’t left his hometown fans out in the cold—for the second season in a row, he’s showing his secondary collection, Tim Hamilton Redux, during New York fashion week. Redux began as a sort of greatest-hits collection, reissuing favorite staples from Hamilton’s eponymous line, but it’s since grown into an entity of its very own, one that skews younger and more street-influenced than the avant-garde main line. That’s not to say it’s not plenty avant in its own right. For the September 10 presentation, art star (and James Franco pal) Kalup Linzy will be DJ’ing and performing, and photographer Collier Schorr will debut a new video featuring the collection. As for accessories, the occasion will see the launch of Dana Lorenz’s first men’s pieces for Fenton/Fallon as well as a new footwear collaboration with Lacoste. “I wanted to work with the original Rene Lacoste shoe and give it a harder tone,” Hamilton says. “By adding a black finish and a high top, it appears to be a mesh—sneaker meets military shoe.” Cadets interested in a pair will be glad to know they’ll be sold with the Redux collection, hitting stores this January.
