Good news for Boy-lovers—that’s Boy, Scott Sternberg’s womenswear counterpart to Band of Outsiders (pictured).

The young stars of the moment—from Katie Holmes, who plays Jackie Kennedy in the forthcoming Kennedys biopic, to Ashley Greene, who hopes her Twilight character will dress a little more Jackie O in the upcoming vamp sequel—are loving Jacqueline Kennedy’s style. So don’t be surprised if they turn up as bidders at Bonhams’ Pioneers of Popular Culture auction, where several of the former First Lady’s jewels are to be auctioned. [Vogue U.K.]
Tom Cruise is staging a comeback—again—with Knight and Day, his new action/comedy flick. The jury’s out on that one, but at the film’s Seville premiere, we did find ourselves more interested in his arm candy than in the Top Gun himself. Co-star Cameron Diaz played the leading role on screen and on the red carpet: She was all drama in a Lanvin dress (calculated, no doubt, to show off her fabulously toned legs) with Lanvin pumps, a Fallon cuff, and blazing red lips. Tom’s real-life paramour, Katie Holmes, on the other hand, went for a sweeter look: a pleated Alaïa dress, gladiator sandals, and barely-there makeup. One went diva, one went demure—who wore it best? Do you prefer Cameron’s marquee glitz, or are you feeling Katie’s quiet elegance?
The red carpet may have been rolled up and stored for the season, but the gowns that walked it are getting their second act at Armani/5th Avenue. Along with Lady Gaga’s spacewoman/ambiguous-religious-icon Armani Privé dress and bejeweled bodysuit from this year’s Grammys (pictured; on Gaga here)—so tiny that it took two devoted Armani staffers to fit on the mannequin—the store windows were rife with dazzlers. There’s the navy and cobalt beaded Armani Privé number Anne Hathaway wore to the 2009 Golden Globes, when she was nominated for Rachel Getting Married. And the fire engine-red sequined gown Katie Holmes donned for the 2008 Met Costume Institute Gala. “There’s been all these little girls on vacation who come in and ask, ‘Can I try that dress on?’ ” the flagship’s vice president, Philippe Neraud, said with a smile. Though from first glance, shoppers may not know that a few moments of glory often comes with a bit of sacrifice. “I was unpacking the dresses and I tried to lift this one out, but I couldn’t do it without using two hands,” Neraud explained of Beyoncé’s metal chain-link minidress from the 2010 Grammys. “I don’t know how she wore it. It was like 30 pounds!” he added. “She had the weight of the world on her shoulders.”

Olivier Theyskens left a big ol’ hole in our hearts when he left Nina Ricci, but he could be back to fill it sooner than we’d hoped. Christopher Burch (Tory‘s ex) is reportedly developing a lifestyle brand, and Theyskens could be his go-to designer. Pitter-patter. [WWD]
