Spotted: The Louis Vuitton X Kusama Collection On The Dance Floor, And More Of The Day’s Top Stories

-------


See spots—and see spots move—courtesy of lensman-of-the-moment Angelo Pennetta, who teamed up with Love‘s Katie Grand for a video take on the new Louis Vuitton x Yayoi Kusama collection. (Also included: turbans. It’s a thing!) [Love]

On Friday (the 13th—spooky!), Proenza Schouler is set to open its first bricks-and-mortar store. Make that concrete. The David Adjaye-designed, two-level space includes what co-designer Lazaro Hernandez calls “a room made out of sidewalk,” and exposed beams, pipes, and concrete are used throughout. “We wanted it to be the antithesis of a high-gloss Madison Avenue store,” Jack McCollough says.

The Rolling Stones gather no moss—a couple gray hairs, maybe. Fifty years ago today in London, the Stones played their first gig, and a half-century later, they’re still (in slightly altered form) at it. And between Vuitton campaigns (Keith Richards) and L’Wren Scott shows (Mick), they’ve even got plans to record new material in London this year. [Rolling Stone]

Carey Mulligan Weds In Prada, Models Speak Out At The Vogue Festival, And More…

Over the weekend, Carey Mulligan married musician Marcus Mumford in the Somerset countryside. Although photos of Mulligan’s dress have not yet surfaced, she reportedly wore an ivory-colored Prada number. [Vogue U.K.]

During the recent Vogue Festival in the U.K., models including Lily Cole, Jourdan Dunn, and Eva Herzigova shared stories about their fashion careers. After making a comment that “it’s better to be skinny than to be fat,” Natalia Vodianova is under fire on the blogs today. The model was referring to the obesity epidemic, adding, “children taken away from their parents because they are too fat—read Daily Mail.” [Telegraph]

Fashion East’s founding force, Lulu Kennedy, has joined Katie Grand at Love magazine. This morning, it was announced that Kennedy (who is often referred to as London fashion’s ‘fairy godmother’) is now the editor at large of the mag. “Over the many fun years and nights out that I’ve known Lulu, I’ve always been hugely impressed with her ability to discover the brightest new talents, and by her commitment to nurturing young designers as they navigate their way into the fashion industry,” Grand, Love‘s editor in chief, tells WWD. [WWD]

Alessandra Ambrosio, who is pregnant with her second child, recently stripped down for a photo shoot to show off her baby bump. The Victoria’s Secret Angel posted the new Mert and Marcus-shot photos, in which she strikes the infamous Demi Moore pregnant pose, to her Facebook yesterday. [Huff Po]

London Fashion Week Is Off To A Royal Start

-------

Nothing like a royal benediction to kick off fashion week, and last night, that’s exactly what London got. At the lawn of Clarence House (Prince Charles’ London pad), Mayor Boris Johnson, Livia Firth (the eco-minded Mrs. Colin), Laura Bailey and a smattering of ladies, lords and baronets attended an eco-sustainable fashion show, presented as part of the Prince’s START festival. (For those not in the know, the old guy is rather a hippie where the environment is concerned.) Appropriate pieces from Stella McCartney, Vivienne Westwood and Emma Watson’s collection for People Tree hit the catwalk, with Erin O’Connor leading the way. The garments were made of recycled fabrics, buttons, and military-issue shirts. (Scratch that, the Prince’s people are calling it “upcycled” rather than “recycled”—upcycled is “the more fashionable cousin.”) The whole thing charmingly embodied England’s old post-war credo of “make do and mend.”

Speaking of making do, who couldn’t make do with a vending machine that sells couture instead of M&M’s?  LOVE‘s Katie Grand and Selfridges got together to create such a vending machine, which will be housed for the duration of LFW in the lobby of the swankiest hotel in London, St Martin’s Lane. (Appropriate, considering it’s the temporary home to tons of visiting editors, models, photogs, buyers, and fashion clients.) Grand ran riot through Selfridges and cherry-picked her favorite items for the 32-slot LOVE Machine (below). It dispenses a Stella McCartney Falabella bag (left), an Alexander Wang leather and sequin dress, a one-off pair of Rick Owens trainers customized by Chrome Hearts, exclusive Dior nail polishes, Diptyque Mimosa candles exclusive to Selfridges in their signature yellow, and for the gents, Falke’s new “secret socks” for men. A word to the wise, though: Know your size. It’s tough to return an item to a vending machine.

Exclusive: Elle Macpherson Goes Postal
In LOVE‘s First IPad Video

-------

In case any further proof was needed that cleavage is back, here’s LOVE‘s first video for its iPad app, debuting any day now from the iTunes store, alongside its fourth issue, “The Gorgeous Issue” (out now). Katie Grand styled Elle Macpherson in Bottega Veneta, Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, Nina Ricci, and Macpherson’s own line of lingerie. Macpherson channels sixties sweater girls in a hip-shaking short shot by Sharif Hamza, who’s lensed editorials for Interview and international editions of Vogue, and videos for Dior Homme and Dazed + Confused. Aside from reminding us all why Elle’s now and forever “The Body,” it’s also one of the better arguments we’ve seen for the rat’s-nest bouffant. Check out the exclusive debut, below.


Dazed Channels Ponyboy, LOVE Loves Lauren, Apple Goes Gaga, And More…

LOVE‘s six “Gorgeous” issue covers have hit the Web. “The Bombshell” (Gisele), “The Angel” (Alessandra Ambrosio), and “The Rebel” (Aggy Deyn) are all nice, but our hands-down favorite is “The Heroine”—the one and only Lauren Hutton (pictured). [Vogue U.K.]

What does legendary Vogue Italia editor Anna Piaggi do at the office? After clicking through this slideshow, we’re still not totally sure, but we’re glad we did it anyway. [Vogue Italia]

Lady Gaga visited Apple’s Cupertino, California, HQ yesterday, fueling rumors that she’ll may star in new ads for the tech giant. Here’s hoping that if it’s true, she keeps the Patsy Stone/Ab Fab bouffant she was sporting on her visit. [Hint Mag]
