Wang’s Win, Daphne’s Shoes, and More…

-------

Alexander Wang can’t stop winning. The 2008 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund winner
scooped up this year’s Swiss Textiles Award, beating out five other
finalists including Thakoon and Ohne Titel. We guess sexy American sportswear translates everywhere.

Daphne Guinness gets the shoes. The pint-size muse showed up in Alexander McQueen‘s fang feet at last night’s party for François Nars, and, of course, totally pulled it off. [British Vogue]

International modeling phenom Karlie Kloss made her mom cupcakes for her birthday. And she’s founding a charity to help underprivileged youth. And she’s 17. [WWD]

Lynn Hirschberg deconstructs Megan Fox. Is her sexed-up image all an act? Unclear, but the actress does use those chicken-cutlet boob enhancements. That’s kind of a relief, right? [NYT]

Costco’s made it to Manhattan. The mammoth food-clothing-electronics-and-everything-else emporium opened its doors today on 116th Street. Go there for a wall of Uggs ($124.99), Chanel
handbags ($1,999.99), and Louis Vuitton duffels ($589.99). No one has to
know where it came from. [NY Post]

Comme Together, Beyoncé Stays Local, And More…

-------

The highly anticipated William Rast retail rollout has begun, and it’s “aggressive.” Sounds like Justin‘s bringing sexy back again. [WWD]

Finally, an uplifting recession scorecard report: Shoe sales are way up. We swear we had no idea. [NYT]

The first Comme des Garçons/Beatles collection image is out. We were hoping for less apple and more strawberry field. [WWD]

It looks like we may get to keep Beyoncé all to ourselves. Her Malaysian concert was a no-go, and now Egypt has declared her tour an “insolent sex party.” Sounds horrible, right? [USA Today]

Donatella confirms rumors that Georgia May Jagger (our latest Beauty Icon) is the face of the new Versace campaign. This, plus Daisy Lowe’s new Louis Vuitton booking, means we are officially in hot British rocker progeny overdrive. [WWD]

Karlie Kloss totally knows how to change your oil. Explore the inner workings of models’ minds on www.modelsaresmart.tumblr.com. [HuffPo]

Escada: Saved! The label has finally been acquired. [WWD]

Karlie For Dior, Gucci x Three, And More…

-------

Karlie Kloss is Dior‘s new face, a tidbit John Galliano offered up when he was late for his own party in Paris on Monday night. We guess casting the Spring campaign is as good an excuse as any. [WWD]

At Ann Taylor, Cintra Wilson finds Lanvin‘s first cousin, Balenciaga‘s love child, and a Louis Vuitton castoff. Not bad for under $250. [NYT]

Move over, Audrey. Angelina Jolie is in talks to star in the next big fashion film— Gucci, a big-budget thriller about the murder of Maurizio Gucci. [Variety]

Speaking of Gucci, now they’ve got an iPhone app. Yes, Angie, online shopping can be considered character research. [WWD]


Wait, there’s more: Mark Ronson’s sneakers for (you guessed it) Gucci are actually more like boat shoes. They’ll be in the Crosby Street pop-up on Friday. BYO dock. [Racked]

Nigeria’s Got Talent

-------

Last season, Arise, the fashion and culture magazine published out of Nigeria, celebrated its debut issue with a runway showcase of emerging design talent. This season, to celebrate the launch of AriseLive.com, Nduka Obaigbena, the publication’s owner, was back with what appears to be a bi-annual tradition, the Promise of Africa Collective. As witnessed last night, some things don’t change: The show was again packed with major models: Freja Beha Erichsen, Chanel Iman, Iris Strubegger, and Karlie Kloss, to name a few. But save for veteran Tiffany Amber, who trekked here from Nigeria last season, the designers showcasing Spring 2010 collections were new. David Tlale, winner of Johannesburg’s answer to Project Runway, was in the mix, along with globe-trotter Eric Raisina (his c.v. boasts experience everywhere from Paris to Cambodia to Madagascar). Most impressive was designer Lisa Folawiyo’s Jewel by Lisa collection: a chic, modern interpretation of kente prints. Not only does Obaigbena have some serious pull when it comes to casting, the celebrity turnout wasn’t too shabby either. Sean Paul and Colin Cowie took it all in from the front row, while Amerie, who has taken on style-blogging for the week, took copious notes.

The Next Jamie Dornan, Rowley’s Babies, And More…

-------


Attention, beefcakes: Calvin Klein is looking for a man who “embodies the attributes of a Calvin Klein Underwear model.” In other words, must be well read, cosmopolitan, multilingual, and good with kids. Did we forget anything? [WWD]

Cynthia Rowley goes baby crazy, calls it Hooray. [WWD]

Take a peek into Veronica Webb‘s super-organized closet, T-shirt labels and all. [WSJ]

The ladies at The Cut test-walked Rodarte’s hip-high Nicholas Kirkwoods, Nina Ricci’s claw bootie, and Manolo Blahnik’s stilettos for Brian Reyes, among others. The verdict? Mostly ouch. [The Cut]

Jason Wu hasn’t had a cup of coffee in six days. Stay strong. [HuffPo]

Karlie Kloss turned 17 this weekend at Disney World, mouse ears included. Is this an audition for next season’s Stella McCartney campaign? [Vogue U.K.]
