The New Swiss Miss, More Angels Among Us, And More…


Mary Katrantzou (pictured) is the latest winner of the Swiss Textile Award, beating out fellow finalists Adam Kimmel, Juun J, and Duro Olowu for the €100,000 prize. Last year’s winner, Alexander Wang, was on hand in Zurich last night to present Katrantzou with the award, which will go toward developing her line internationally. [WWD]

The Victoria’s Secret runway show hits New York City next week, and more and more details are emerging about the 30-odd models who’ll tromp down the runway. Constance Jablonski, Lais Ribeiro, Lily Donaldson, and Anne Vyalitsyna—a first-time Angel this year—will all be part of “A Night of a Thousand Fantasies,” this year’s show. [Fashionologie]

Kell on Earth may be no more, but People’s Revolution PR queen Kelly Cutrone won’t stay off the air for long. She’s just announced via Twitter that she’s signed on as a correspondent for Dr. Phil, where she’ll no doubt provide a saltier brand of tough love than the good doctor’s usual platitudes.

Attendees at the Fashion Delivers gala in New York this week were treated to a surprise appearance by a very big-name guest: Madonna. The Material Woman (née Girl) stopped by to praise the evening’s honoree, Iconix Brand Group CEO (and Kenneth Cole’s brother) Neil Cole, for his charity work, including with her Raising Malawi organization.

Who Wore It Best—Or Sheerest—At Paris Vogue‘s 90th Anniversary Bash?


Usually, you wouldn’t want to see this much skin at a 90th birthday party. But when it’s a 90th birthday party for Paris Vogue, all bets are off. Carine Roitfeld and her Gallic crew threw a bal masqué in Paris last night, and though the faces were obscured, not much else was. Sheer—which has been all over the Spring runways—was the look of the night. The charge was led by the hostess, in a see-through, leopard-spotted Givenchy number, and her heiress apparent, daughter Julia Restoin-Roitfeld, in a gold-embellished sheer number from Peter Dundas’ Spring ’11 Pucci runway. Natalia Vodianova, Mariacarla Boscono, Lily Donaldson, and Bianca Brandolini d’Adda were also feeling the transparent vibe. (Some, like Maryna Linchuk, above, went for sheer masks, too.)

Scratch That


One for the hall of cool glossy covers: The new Sexy Body Issue of V, featuring five covers and five scantily clad cover models—Adriana Lima, Lily Donaldson, Eniko Mihalik, Isabeli Fontana, and Natasha Poly—and four fully scratch-off-able V’s. (Adriana Lima’s shy, apparently; hers stays put, no matter how much you—or your boyfriend—may claw at it.) Mario Sorrenti photographed the five covers. If there were justice in the libraries of the world, these would sit right next to the peel-to-undress Baptiste Giabiconi cover that Karl Lagerfeld shot for Wallpaper last year. The scratch-off covers are available exclusively at

Lady Gaga’s Doing It For Herself, Your Chance To Snag A Few Early Alexander McQueens, And More…


Three years after her death, Isabella Blow’s unparalleled fashion collection—which included her friend Alexander McQueen’s entire graduate collection from Central Saint Martins—will go on the auction block. Here’s hoping some smart museum or private donor keeps at least the McQueens together. [WWD]

Todd Selby shot Waris Ahluwalia, Ruben Toledo, and André Balazs in their envy-inducing offices and homes for Louis Vuitton—in other words, exactly what you’d expect. If it ain’t broke, we guess… [Refinery29]

Speaking of Waris, he joined Lily Donaldson, Erin Wasson, and more in supporting NYC public school education. Each designed a T-shirt to be auctioned off on eBay to celebrate Playworkgroup’s first anniversary; the proceeds will go to Pencil, a local nonprofit. Lily’s shirt includes a pair of eyes and the legend “I See You”; Erin’s the scrawled quote, “Some things should last a really long time.” (So maybe hand-wash this particular tee?) [Modelinia]

Anne Hathaway has given up the gifts given to her by her conman ex-boyfriend, Raffaello Follieri, which include several Rolexes, jewelry, and a Louis Vuitton box. They’ll be auctioned off to repay the victims of Follieri’s schemes. [Page Six]

And Lady Gaga has applied for an internship with eccentric English milliner Philip Treacy. We never thought we’d say this, but makes total economic sense. If you’re going to run around with lobsters, telephones, and orbiting rings on your head all day, it’s only practical to bring production in-house. [Vogue U.K.]

Ping-Pong For Haiti, And Other Adventures In Fashionable Do-Gooding


Emergency parties, disaster-relief socials—whatever you want to call them, there was no shortage of get-togethers in New York last night designed to raise much-needed money for Haiti’s devastated earthquake victims.

Modelinia and SPiN teamed up to bring paying guests into the trendy Gramercy table tennis club, with proceeds benefiting Friends of the Orphans. “We’re watching it on TV and then we go on with our daily lives. And tonight we’re having fun, but we realize why we’re here—that’s a step,” offered paddle-wielding Doutzen Kroes. Of all the models, the Dutch former speed-skater seemed to have the best game. “I’m just competitive,” she insisted.

Farther downtown, hotelier Jason Pomeranc was overseeing a party at the Thompson LES that he and his team had only started planning Monday. “This situation requires people to move quickly, so everyone’s going outside the norm to do something right,” he said. (Narciso Rodriguez had been quicker than most, holding a benefit at 60 Thompson on Monday night.) And so the likes of Vito Schnabel, Lily Donaldson, and Justin Giunta made their way up to DJ Mark Ronson—whose sister Sam was spinning at a simultaneous fundraiser at Pomeranc’s L.A. property, the Roosevelt—by way of a lobby donation box. The nightlife crowd showing it cares, fashion types paying for drinks? “Like I said,” Pomeranc shrugged, “outside the norm.”
