Spin Control


On October 6, we’ll be live-streaming Marc Jacobs’ Spring ’11 Louis Vuitton show right here on You’ll have the best seat in the house. And for a week afterwards, you’ll be able to see even more—360 degrees more, to be precise. After the show, each model will be photographed by 52 cameras simultaneously, capturing the look from every conceivable angle. Motion-responsive images will be available starting at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, October 6, on LV’s Facebook page and available for the iPad and iPhone, allowing you to turn each look a full 360 degrees. Want to test it out? Give Marc Jacobs a spin, by clicking and dragging or rolling your mouse’s trackball, as he invites you to the Spring ’11 show, above.

The Next Dimension Of Miranda Kerr, The Perfect Cuff For Suedeheads, Closets Of The Rich And Fabulous, And More…


Are we seeing more Miranda Kerr than usual? Actually, with the Australian Angel’s new Steven Meisel-shot Vogue Italia cover (pictured), we are—it’s the first fashion mag in 3-D! [Vogue Italia]

Louis Vuitton’s “Core Values” ad campaign soldiers on with three new stars: Bono, wife Ali Hewson, and (gasp!) some non-LV apparel. Hewson and Bono wear items from their eco-friendly (and LVMH-owned) Edun line in the new shots, along with Vuitton’s own goods (and the first-ever made-in-Africa Vuitton piece—the dangling charm hanging off Hewson’s bag).

Does anyone need a Tom Binns cuff emblazoned with the complete lyrics to the Smiths’ “How Soon Is Now?” Probably not. But are we glad Racked turned it up? Absolutely. [Racked]

Yea, Nay, Or Eh? Nifty Fifties


The new, ladylike silhouette from Fall ’10, with its fifties-inspired full skirt, has gotten no end of coverage in the press but hasn’t yet made as much of an impact in the world of celebrity dressing. But for Louis Vuitton’s Santa Monica store opening last night, a few brave souls took Marc Jacobs’ retro dresses for a spin—and came out, we’d say, the better for it. Sure, there were plenty of red-carpet-as-usual minis (most, of course, by Vuitton), but Modern Family‘s Sofia Vergara and burlesque queen Dita Von Teese went long. We especially liked Vergara’s calf-length sleeveless navy version, worn without the belts styled with it on the runway. With an LV clutch and simple black pumps, we’d say she did her fifties forebears proud. What do you think—yea, nay, or eh?

Erykah Badu To Keep Her Clothes On


Justice was served—we guess—in Dallas today, where city officials report that R&B singer Erykah Badu has paid a $500 fine for stripping down to her birthday suit in the city’s Dealey Plaza for a music video for her song “Window Seat.” (You can see the NSFW video here; in it, Badu re-creates the assassination of President Kennedy, except, of course, more naked.) Law abiding is a pretty good reason for Erykah to remain clothed in public, but we can think of another good one, too: For all her wild style, she actually gets it right a lot of the time. We’ve combed through the year in Badu performances and found that the singer (and/or her stylists) tend to hit right on trend. Below, a few onstage outfits and their runway precedents. The top hat, on the other hand, is 100 percent her own.

Notes From Van Noten, The Kardashians Take Manhattan, And More…


The ever-laconic Dries Van Noten (pictured) submits to Hint‘s One Sentence or Less interview series. It’s the perfect form for him! [Hint]

Hide your velour sweatpants and spray tan: The Kardashians are reportedly looking for a New York space for an outpost of Dash, Kourtney and Khloe’s Miami-based boutique. They’re scouting—where else?—the Meatpacking District. [Racked]

Play the fill-in-the-blind-item guessing game: Who’s retiring, who’s moving, and who’s returning to august fashion houses? We vouch for 0 percent of this’ accuracy, but it’s fun to imagine in any case. [Fashionologie]

Louis Vuitton, world-renowned maker of handbags, ready-to-wear, and…forests? It’s true: The label’s sponsors a Japanese reforestation project called Louis Vuitton Forest by More Trees, which recently celebrated its one-year anniversary with a symposium in Tokyo. [WWD]
