Hedi Rocks On

-------

Only for Hedi Slimane is it par for the course to dress a Rolling Stone. The designer—who opened the doors to Saint Laurent’s swanky new Avenue Montaigne flagship today—has created Keith Richards’ onstage duds for the Stones’ 50 Years and Counting tour. Considering the designer’s musical ties (most recently, he created Daft Punk’s helmeted Coachella costumes, his pals include Sky Ferreira and Alison Mosshart, and, of course, his latest ad campaigns feature the likes of Beck, Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson), and the fact that he dressed the Stones while at Dior Homme, Slimane was, perhaps, the obvious choice for Richards (front man Mick Jagger, however, turned to girlfriend L’Wren Scott for his looks). The rocker’s ensemble will consist of silk scarves, T-shirts, a vest, and a café racer jacket. The latter—aptly named the Keith jacket—will be available for a mere $4,850 as part of the forthcoming Saint Laurent Stage Wear by Hedi Slimane collection, which will hit stores in June. Not surprisingly, Saint Laurent reports that Slimane has more sartorial stage projects in the pipeline.

Hollywood’s Most Powerful Stylists Revealed

-------

The results are in. Today, The Hollywood Reporter released its third annual list of Hollywood’s 25 Most Powerful Stylists. The winners include big names we’ve been hearing a lot about of late—Kate Young, who’s been whipping up a buzz with her new Target collection (and who styles Michelle Williams, Rachel Weisz, and Natalie Portman), came in at number four. Elizabeth Stewart, who chronicled her experience styling Amanda Seyfried, Jessica Chastain, Julia Roberts, and Cody Horn for the Golden Globes for Style.com, came in at number five. And Rachel Zoe, who styled Anne Hathaway and Jennifer Lawrence in their much-talked-about Oscar gowns, slid in at number three. Petra Flannery, who styles Emma Stone, Zoe Saldana, and Megan Fox, was this year’s runner-up. And the big winner is (drumroll, please) Leslie Fremar, who styles discerning stars like Julianne Moore, Charlize Theron, and Jennifer Connelly. A surprise on the list was designer (and Mick Jagger’s girlfriend) L’Wren Scott, who came in at number sixteen for dressing Nicole Kidman.

Suits Like Jagger

-------

After 50 years of sweating, screaming, and singing with the Stones, Mick Jagger is all about feeling good on stage. “Men aren’t interested in clothes that look amazing but are fantastically uncomfortable to wear. We’re not into pain—we’re into comfort,” he told WWD today. The dapper duds his girlfriend, fashion designer L’Wren Scott, created for his current “50 and Counting” tour apparently fit the bill. But all one has to do is look at the Stones’ old tour photos to know that, in his earlier years, Jagger’s comfort was the exception, rather than the rule.

In the late sixties, Jagger, along with his then wife Bianca, became big-time clients of Ossie Clark, the It designer of London’s swinging sixties. Clark, who also counted the likes of Twiggy and Jean Shrimpton among his fans, designed jumpsuits that hugged Mick, very, very tightly, in all the right places. From a bedazzled blue velvet onesie to a low-cut unitard, to the lace-up number pictured above (which is currently up for auction at Christie’s with a starting bid of $12,744), Jagger shied away from neither glamour nor flamboyance. Rather, as he wiggled and kicked about on stage in his Clark designs, he embraced them. Which would explain why he quite literally wore his second-skin suits to death. “You can see the pelvic wear and tear from all the gyrating,” V&A curator Kate Dorney told the Guardian in 2009 when asked about one of the rock star’s Ossie-designed costumes featured in an exhibition. However, Jagger never fell victim to the “wardrobe malfunctions” so common in modern stardom. Being the master that he was, Clark always made sure Mick was equipped with well-made backups.

Diana Vreeland Lights Up Paris Once More

-------

There are few people who could warrant a breakfast of Champagne and caviar, but Diana Vreeland is one of them. Yesterday, in collaboration with Barneys, Lisa Immordino Vreeland’s (pictured, center) film about her legendary grandmother-in-law, Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has To Travel, made its Paris debut. And given the editor’s relationship with the city (she was born here, after all), it was a significant screening, with the likes of Grace Coddington, L’Wren Scott, Michele Lamy, Olivier Rousteing (pictured, right), and Patrick Demarchelier all turning out to Paris’ Pagoda Theater for the event. “Mrs. Vreeland was such a dramatic personage that if anybody was cinematic, it’s her,” said Valerie Steele, who was seeing the film for the first time. “She totally worshiped Paris and the whole world of Paris fashion. I think she would be delighted to be here. And for all we know, maybe she is.”

Mrs. Vreeland’s presence was felt. “I remember when she was the editor of Vogue in the sixties, she moved the entire offices to adjoining suites at Le Crillon,” Vreeland’s grandson Alex recalled. “They took out all the beds and it looked like something from a James Bond movie because you’d open the door and see all these women running around or typing letters.” After the film had ended, viewers were given red gift boxes cleverly filled with peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and a bottle of scotch. The editor notoriously enjoyed the unorthodox combination for lunch every day. The box also contained a notecard with one of Vreeland’s most famous quotes: “Fashion must be the most intoxicating release from the banality of the world.” Certainly, her words provided a poignant reminder at the end of a very long, albeit intoxicating, fashion month.

L’Wren Loves…

-------

“I was researching wartime propaganda, and, at the same time, thinking about my own positive propaganda and the message I wanted to send out,” designer L’Wren Scott tells Style.com of the inspiration behind her debut Resort collection. “I decided to have fun with the prints and I gave them playful names such as the ones featured in this video.” The designer gave each of the colorful, custom-crafted prints (some of them inspired by the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the American election) quirky titles like Bromance, The Bomb, and L’Wren Loves. Here, check out the prints and the full looks in this video, taken during Scott’s presentation at the Crosby Street Hotel, debuting exclusively on Style.com.
