Do-Gooding In Technicolor

-------

Art and design go hand in hand with fashion, so no surprise to find plenty of style-world names on the invitation to next week’s Museum of Arts & Design gala and auction. Waris Ahluwalia, Tyson Beckford, and Mazdack Rassi (founder and creative director of Milk Studios) are a few of the evening’s co-chairs, and Mandy Coon, Kevork Kiledjian, Kate Lanphear, and Robert Geller all among the host committee members. This year is the Fluorescent Ball, where all things eye-popping are in, from the artworks in the silent auction (like a neon-bright surfboard by Rogan Gregory to Dan Flavin-esque fluorescent-tube art pieces by Julian Lwin, Tapp Francke, and Lite Brite Neon) to the dress code for the night.

Also lighting up the scene: the just-announced celebrity co-chair of the evening, Community and Mad Men actress Alison Brie (left, with an appropriately fluoro-clad Estelle, at Diane von Furstenberg’s Spring ’11 show). Arts education—the beneficiary of the gala’s proceeds—is close to Brie’s heart. “I’ve always been a fan of arts education—my mother works in education, and that’s always been a big priority in my family,” Brie told Style.com from the set of Five-Year Engagement, the romantic comedy she’s filming with Emily Blunt. (Plus, of course: “Tyson Beckford’s gonna be there so you know it’s going to be a fun time.”) As for her fluorescent outfit for the evening? “The dress I was thinking of wearing is a Lela Rose bright orange one. Her use of color is fantastic,” she says, describing the shade as “neon-ish.” “I’ve definitely been to some neon after-hours parties in L.A. where I’ve really gone all-out. I don’t know if I’m going to go quite as…uh, whimsical.”

From Paris To The White House?

-------


Guilty Brotherhood is not kidding around. The brand, which was founded in Paris two years ago, recently moved its headquarters to a West Village townhouse ahead of its Spring ’10 launch in the United States, and designer Kevork Kiledjian and creative director Fanny Bourdette-Donon have recruited an A-list team to help assure that Guilty Brotherhood makes a splash. It interior designer Ryan Korban is spiffing up the townhouse, for example, and last week, photographer Greg Kadel, stylist Edward Enninful, and model Abbey Lee gathered in Los Angeles to shoot the Spring campaign. Back in Paris, meanwhile, a first show for the brand is tentatively planned for October 2010, and Jean Nouvel is designing the multi-story flagship, which is scheduled to open in 2011. Long story short, expect to be hearing plenty about Guilty Brotherhood in the new year—and seeing plenty of stars amping up their sex appeal in the line’s unapologetically va-va-voom designs. (Lookers such as Kate Moss and Doutzen Kroes are already fans.) Given that Ikram was one of the first stateside retailers to pick up Guilty Brotherhood, perhaps the First Lady will be bringing sexy back to the White House, too? Perhaps not, but there’s no harm in hoping.
