It wasn’t a great night for traditional fashion books, but there were some stylish wins at the National Magazine Awards last night. New York took home four Ellies, The New Yorker and National Geographic three each, and GQ took home the award for General Excellence in the 500,000-to-1 million circulation category. [WWD]
The latest Louis Vuitton “Icons” campaign has leaked, starring footballers Zidane, Pelé, and Maradona enjoying some foosball in their downtime. Annie Leibovitz shot the campaign in Madrid. And, oh yeah, there are some pieces of LV luggage (Zidane’s monogrammed with his ZZ) lurking in the background. [Racked]
Speaking of models, Karlie Kloss and Anna Jagodzinska are the faces of Donna Karan for Fall 2010. Patrick Demarchelier shot them in New York for the label’s 25th anniversary campaign. [Fashionologie]
And another designer made it work. Seth Aaron Henderson was named the winner of the seventh season of Project Runway last night. [NYDN]
And you thought last year’s Fashion’s Night Out was a big production. This time around, in addition to all of the in-store activities; the designer, model, and celebrity appearances; and the spontaneous street parties on September 10, Vogue and SPEC Entertainment are producing an open-to-the-public fashion show. With 200-plus models, the September 7 extravaganza will be the biggest public fashion show New York (or at least the 1,500 guests that will fill the seats at Lincoln Center, pictured) has ever seen. The likes of Karlie Kloss, Chanel Iman, Raquel Zimmermann, and Daria Werbowy will show off key Fall trends. Tickets will go on sale this summer through the Lincoln Center box office, and a portion of the proceeds will go to the New York City AIDS Fund. In the meantime, stores interested in participating in Fashion’s Night Out can register as of today at www.fashionsnightout.com.
Pour a little out for French denim label April77. The Paris-based line (and record label, incidentally) announced it is shuttering operations, effective immediately. [WWD]
iPad mania is the Apple craze of the moment, but Diane von Furstenberg hasn’t forgotten the iPhone. She’s just released her own hot-pink iPhone/iPod Touch case, available at her stores and emblazoned with her trademark lips. [NY Mag]
The reign of Karlie continues: Kloss (pictured, opening the Fall 2010 Dior ready-to-wear show) has been re-signed as the face of Dior for Fall 2010. [Fashionologie]
WWD sits down with Thom Browne for a chat on moving his show to Paris. Most intriguing: He lets slip that he’s working on a collection of limited-edition Champagne coupes with Baccarat. “It’s just a nice little project I wanted to do, even just for myself, because when I travel I always look for vintage Champagne coupes. It’s similar to how my [signature] suit came about. I decided to produce it instead of looking for it in an antique store,” Browne told the paper. For the man who has everything (except vintage Champagne coupes)! [WWD]
And the Times takes a moment to check in with Paper magazine editor in chief (and 2010 CFDA Eugenia Sheppard Award honoree) Kim Hastreiter as she hobnobs with Madonna and enthuses about all things fashion/art/culture/cool. [NYT]
