The Most Powerful of Them All

-------

The Costume Institute at the Met earlier this year celebrated two of fashion’s female greats: Miuccia Prada and Elsa Schiaparelli. It was indeed a great triumph for powerful ladies in all fields. The annual Forbes list of the 100 most powerful women in the world, out today, honors Prada and a few other stylish women with the attention they so deserve. No surprise here, but CFDA president Diane von Furstenberg came in at number 33, above one of fashion’s other most powerful ladies, Anna Wintour (#51). Joining them are fashion favorites like Michelle Obama, Lady Gaga, Gisele Bündchen, Queen Elizabeth II, Beyoncé, and J. Lo. Click here to see the full list. Honorable mention goes to power women in the making including Kate Middleton (you can’t win everything; sorry, Kate), Girls‘ Lena Dunham, Jennifer Lawrence, and Spanx creator Sarah Blakely. Maybe next year, ladies.

Girls Allowed: The 2012 Emmy Nominations

-------

It’s hard not to wonder about the overlap between Emmy voters and Twitter obsessives this year. The nominations for the annual primetime TV awards skews to the young, the cool, and the zeitgeist-y. Proof? Look no further than the presence of just about every show that’s been a hipster (and, to large part, critics) favorite: Girls (overcoming some bad press to get a Best Comedy Series nod), New Girl, Louie, Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, Downton Abbey—all got their due. So did Kristen Wiig (Best Actress in a Comedy series, for her tearful final season of SNL), the cult-worshipped English actor Benedict Cumberbatch of Sherlock, and pop culture’s favorite curmudgeons, Louis C.K. and Larry David. (This year also marks what must be the historic first time that a nominee for Best Actress—Lena Dunham (pictured), Girls—dressed up as a nominee for Best Actor—Louis C.K., Louie—for Halloween. It’s also likely the first time that an actress has been nominated, as Margaret Cho was, for playing Kim Jong-il—in a comedy.) Leading the pack are Mad Men (with 17 nominations) and Homeland (with nine nominations). The awards will be broadcast on September 23.

Maje Modeling News For Alexa Chung, And More Of Today’s Top Stories

-------

Alexa Chung’s status as an It girl just went up even more. The French contemporary brand Maje has tapped the Brit as the face of its Fall Glen Luchford-lensed black-and-white advertising campaign. Chung was photographed sixties-style, in the early morning at the Porte des Lilas Métro stop in Paris. [WWD]

Are redheads the new cult phenomenon (again)? In the modeling industry, some might say yes. Disney Pixar’s new animated film Brave, featuring main character Princess Merida and her long fiery locks, has sparked a second coming of appreciation for red-haired models Karen Elson, Lily Cole, and more. [Modelinia]

Tory Burch is going even more digital. The designer is set to unveil the redesign of her Tory Blog, a first since its launch in 2009. She will also introduce the first Tory Daily iPad and iPhone app, which are aimed at integrating commerce and content—both apps will be updated daily and feature perks for fans that include free shipping and access to exclusive events. [WWD]

Girls star Lena Dunham says she doesn’t read reviews of her show, but that tweets are more her thing. “I love seeing the real-time reactions of people who aren’t critics, who are just experiencing the show at home,” says Dunham. Note to those tweeters: Keep them coming. Dunham says that fans’ tweets can sometimes influence the show’s direction. [Page Six]

Burton And Blakely In Time, Justin Timberlake On Design, Lena Dunham On Her First, And More…

Fashion in Time: The newsmagazine just released its Top 100 list of influentials, including industry stalwarts Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen (left) and Spanx founder Sara Blakely. Also represented: style icons Duchess Catherine, her sister Pippa, and popster Rihanna. [Time]

Justin Timberlake’s latest brand extension: interiors. The 31-year-old singer turned designer turned SNL mainstay turned actor is adding another line to his résumé, thanks to a new partnership with HomeMint. Timberlake and his friend and decorator Estee Stanley have created a collection for the e-tail site favoring “clean, modern architecture.” The Mint family is no stranger to celebrity team-ups: The company that oversees HomeMint also runs StyleMint, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s fashion site, and JewelMint, Kate Bosworth’s jewelry site. [NYDN]

The entire world seems to be talking about Lena Dunham’s sex life at the moment. So’s Lena Dunham. The Girls actor, director, writer, and producer has contributed an essay on her first time to Tavi Gevinson’s Rookie Mag, alongside Liz Phair, Sarah Silverman, and a few other indie girl heroes. Not entirely safe for work, save for a few first-kiss stories thrown into the mix. [Rookie Mag]

Intermix is on the expansion path. The chain opened its Meatpacking District store, the sixth in NYC, and its first international location in Toronto just last year, and will continue to grow globally. The company’s founder and CEO, Khajak Keledjian, told WWD he hopes to build the store’s presence overseas, with plans to open five to ten new stores in the next 12 months. Keledjian has set his sights on locations in Europe, South America, and the Middle East. [WWD]

Laurie Simmons’ New Collaborator:
Gossip Girl

-------

Gossip Girl returns to the air tonight at 9 p.m., and sources tell Style.com it’ll have a new guest star: contemporary artist Laurie Simmons (right, with gallerist Jeanne Greenberg Rohatyn). The “Pictures Generation” photographer and portraitist appears on the show to create a commissioned portrait of the van der Woodsens—one that, one presumes, will hang alongside the Richard Phillips they’ve already got. It isn’t the first time the fashion and style world has reached out to Simmons: Thakoon collaborated with the artist on a series of prints for his Spring ’09 show (blooming roses with human legs, in tribute to her Walking and Lying Objects series from the eighties). Nor is it Simmons’ first turn onscreen. She had a starring role—as a contemporary artist who shoots miniature interiors, not unlike her own work—in Tiny Furniture, her daughter Lena Dunham’s award-winning indie film.
