A Grand Strategy For The iPad; Waste Not, Want Not; Another Vera Bride; And More…

-------


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.]

Corduroy And We Work Present Cheesecake For Charity

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.

The Absentees

-------

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).

London’s In A New York, New York State Of Mind

-------

Have iPod, will travel. That seemed to be the thinking behind last night’s New York, New York party, which hopped the Channel from its traditional home at Paris fashion week and touched down at London nightspot Sketch. “I like to say we were invited by the Queen,” joked Sophomore designer Chrissie Miller, who co-hosted the party with, among others, Grand Life’s Tommy Saleh and Style.com editor at large Derek Blasberg. “I just wish she’d do something about the fucking smoking laws!” That was a taste of NYC many partygoers could’ve done without, but other hometown imports were more popular. When Miller took Jay-Z’s “Empire State of Mind” for a spin during one of her stints at the turntable, there were plenty of British Isles accents to be heard in the crowd sing-along (pictured).

“I just came for the toilets,” quipped menswear designer Aitor Throup, who was huddled in the corner with Erdem Moralioglu. “Seriously—you have to check them out, they’re insane.” He wasn’t wrong. The loos at Sketch are space-age, egg-shaped pods that talk to you. But the real attraction at the party was the company, which included both New Yorkers (Leigh Lezark and Julia Restoin-Roitfeld) and Londoners (Peaches Geldof, Charlotte Dellal, Henry Holland, and Stephen Jones). Turns out the cities aren’t so different, either. “It practically feels like home,” deadpanned Miller, as she grabbed her jacket and went outside for a smoke.

Friends in High Places, Part I: Lara Stone (pictured, with fiancé David Walliams) reveals that Riccardo Tisci—who gave the model her first big break in a Givenchy Couture show—will be designing her wedding dress. Commence turning green…now. [Interview]

Friends in High Places, Part II: Those front-row scenesters that seem to have shown up at every NYFW runway, presentation, party, and after-party? WWD has helpfully chronicled their itineraries and ranked them for your envying pleasure. Justin Theroux, Leigh Lezark, that girl from Grey’s Anatomy—they’re all here. Our only quibble: Where’s Jared Leto? [WWD]

One to add to the fashion reading list circa 2011 or so: Antigone in Vogue, University of Nebraska professor Rhonda Garelick’s book on Coco Chanel and European politics, which has just been sold to Random House. And look for the adorable Audrey Tautou film adaptation a few years after that. [Mediabistro via Racked]

The American Society of Magazine Editors has announced that Anna Wintour will be inducted into the Editors Hall of Fame at the 2010 ASME Awards. [WWD]

Dolce & Gabbana and D&G are the latest two labels to bring the runway to you: The Fall 2010 shows for both will be live-streamed to smart phones at live.dolcegabbana.mobi. D&G’s is at 10 a.m. EST on February 25 and Dolce’s at 8 a.m. EST on the 28th—a little rough for a Sunday, but no one said this fashion game was easy.
