As you may have heard, Style.com is celebrating a big birthday this week. We’re not afraid to show our age—we’re 10 and proud! (Oh, the things we’ve seen—and rounded up for our decade-in-review anniversary feature!)
It may be our birthday, but we’re giving you the present. We’ve teamed up with ten amazing designers and labels to offer limited-edition T-shirts on the theme of ten—each one incorporates the Roman numeral X. They’ll go on sale tomorrow at a one-day-only pop-up shop at 22nd Street and Broadway in NYC and at Colette in Paris, then right here on Style.com the next day. To show off the designs from Givenchy, Lanvin, Alexander Wang, Proenza Schouler, and more, we called in a few friends and fans to model for our very own Tommy Ton. Click here for a look at the first five, including Lanvin (pictured, worn by the ageless style icon Iris Apfel), Wang (worn by Leigh Lezark), and Balmain (modeled by Anna Dello Russo).
The German artist Robert Knoke has worked in all media and covered most every theme, but he’s got a special affinity for the world of fashion—he’s collaborated on collections, exhibited in stores like Seven New York, and shown up in the pages of i-D and Purple Fashion. With a résumé like that, no surprise he’s picked up a few friends in chic places, many of whom appear—in portrait, at least—in his new tome, Project 00—Black Material, which arrives in New York with a party, of course, just after fashion week concludes. (Call it fashionably late.) Olivier Zahm, Patti Smith, Marc Jacobs, Terence Koh, and Leigh Lezark (pictured) are only a few of the bold names who sat for Knoke’s black-and-white portraits, which are collected in the first in his series of multimedia art books. Of course, no good multimedia-ist is content to rest between two covers, so the project comes along with Knoke-designed T-shirts, too—screened with his portraits of Damir Doma, Koh, the MisShapes, Gareth Pugh, and DJ Spencer Product, and available in limited editions of 500 at Seven, Oak, Colette, 10 Corso Como, and Isetan.
LOVE is the latest mag to come to the iPad, with a dedicated app that will launch with the new “Gorgeous” issue on August 23. It’ll feature specially made short films to accompany the issue, inspired, says editor Katie Grand, by her love of Guy Bourdin’s seventies shorts. Adorably pixelated bunnies (above) not necessarily included. [LOVE]
Green-minded designers are experimenting with zero-waste fashion, using every scrap of material to create their garments. Parsons is even offering a new class in the subject—co-taught by Loomstate’s Scott Mackinlay Hahn. [NYT]
If you’re keeping the celebs-in-Vera count, we’re at three this summer: first Chelsea and Alicia Keys, now Hilary Duff. The pop star tied the knot in Santa Barbara this weekend in a Vera Wang gown. [Catwalk Queen]
And DKNY nets a new campaign star: Leigh Lezark, the New York DJ-turned-model, who stars in the Fall ’10 ads. [Vogue U.K.]
We Work and Corduroy magazine are throwing down at Milk Studios tonight, celebrating the pub’s Spring/Summer issue with an all-star jam session and a silent auction of photographs that will benefit women’s microfinance organization Kiva. Leigh Lezark (above), is one of many women lensed for the sale by a photographer pal (in her case, Dan Martensen). Check out more exclusive preview images of Irina Lazareanu by Alexandra Carr (slightly NSFW), Lily Aldridge by Johnny Giunta, and Paz de la Huerta by Richard Kern, below.

It was the Great Party That Was™—but who, dare we ask, wasn’t? Seats were going fast at last night’s Costume Institute Gala, but a few frequently seen faces on the party scene didn’t make an appearance. Where were they?
Gwyneth Paltrow has been making the New York party rounds lately, lending her support to Chopard’s 150th anniversary and to children’s yoga programs but the Iron Man blonde was a no-show. Ditto her co-star Scarlett Johansson. Neither Mary-Kate nor Ashley Olsen came, nor did their pals the Traina girls. Models were everywhere, but not Lara Stone or Georgia Jagger—the latter of whom, admittedly, has been studying rather than partying these last few weeks. And Chanel beauty ambassador Leigh Lezark was nowhere to be seen—at the party, that is. She’s not one to miss an after-party, and true to form, she hit the decks with her fellow MisShapes at the Standard later on (pictured).
Who else would you have liked to see at the Met?
