Derek Lam’s Perfect “10,” Moss On The Opportunity She Missed, More Chanel Than Should Be Legal In One Apartment, And More…
Derek Lam is all about broadening his business right now: The designer is plowing ahead with his crowd-sourced, affordable eBay collection, and has just announced a diffusion range for his main line, to be called 10 Crosby Derek Lam, a nod to his NYC shop address. The target customer? Cool girls between 20 and 45—a mix, Lam told WWD, of Mariel Hemingway and Dree Hemingway. Cool must run in the family. [WWD]
Kate Moss has only one fashion regret: She wasn’t cast with her fellow supes Naomi, Linda, and Christy in George Michael’s “Freedom” video. Oh, and in case you wanted to know: She thought London’s other Kate—that’d be Middleton—looked “so chic and seamless” on her wedding day. [Vogue U.K.]
The Coveteur visits Chanel ambassador Jen Brill at home, where they find a true embarrassment of riches, more Chanel than we can fairly say we’ve ever seen outside of a Chanel store. Even Brill’s freezer is well stocked—with Karl’s ice cube double-C bags, of course (above). (Apparently they come with a note from the Kaiser to keep them frosty.) [The Coveteur]
And an awww for German Vogue. The mag gave three covers to its June issue, all starring a model and her real-life beau: Karolina Kurkova and Archie Drury, Alessandra Ambrosio and Jamie Mazur, and soon-to-be-newlyweds Anja Rubik and Sasha Knezevic. [Modelinia]
No sooner had Chanel’s Cruise ship (er, show) rolled out of town—attendee Rachel Bilson’s already back on the party scene in New York—than the Cannes Film Festival kicked off on the Riviera. The stars (and star jurors) aligned for the opening ceremony of the fest, and the first film, Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris, which screened out of competition this evening.
With the red carpet officially unfurled, the best-dressed race is officially on, and there were plenty of strong contenders on Day 1. Our picks? Juror Uma Thurman, who attended the opening ceremony in a high-slit Fall ’11 white Versace gown (left), won plenty of votes. So did Karolina Kurkova, who took in the premiere of Midnight in Paris in midnight blue Armani Privé (center). And coming in strong with a more casual day look was Midnight star Léa Seydoux (right), who chose pretty, printed Prada (with matching Louboutin pumps) for the film’s photo call earlier in the afternoon. (She wore petal pink Vuitton to the official premiere.)

Jean Paul Gaultier’s favorite model of the moment is young Australian Andrej Pejic, whose near-absolute androgyny has made him a sought-after catwalker for men’s and women’s shows alike. JPG cast the statuesque blond opposite the equally statuesque blond Karolina Kurkova in his Spring ’11 ad campaign, and sent him down the runway as both a tux-clad “James Blonde” (above left) and a gold-laméd lady at his Spring 2011 menswear show. Today, Pejic made a clean sweep of all the recent Gaultier goings-on: He took the second-to-last spot at the designer’s Spring ’11 Couture show as a veiled mariée (above right).
With January issues now in hand and February issues soon to arrive, it’s officially Spring ’11 ad season. And while we’ve brought you exclusive debuts from Michael Kors, Giorgio Armani, Valentino, Yves Saint Laurent, and Pringle of Scotland, we didn’t want to leave out any other worthy competitors either. Below, a roundup of some recent strong showings, from Lindsey Wixson for Alexander McQueen to Leighton Meester for Missoni (above, left to right). Continue Reading “The Campaigns Keep Coming” »

Karolina Kurkova had a boy—Tobin Jack Drury. We congratulate the supermodel on going with an only slightly fancy-pants name. [Modelinia]
