Moises’ Youth Group, Boys In Skirts, And More…


Moises de la Renta, Oscar‘s designer son, might be inking a deal with Mango, the Spanish fast fashion brand. The bonus behind the deal? He and his father won’t have to worry about fighting over clients. [WWD]

The New York Times has discovered Rent the Runway, and they’ve visited the office. As you might expect, the twentysomething founders wear cocktail dresses to work. [NYT]

Hmm, wonder where Marc Jacobs would stand on the “can a boy wear a skirt to school” debate? Survey says… [NYT]

Technically savvy, social network-loving, British luxury brand aficionados, there’s now a Web site just for you: Burberry’s Art of the Trench. Sign yourself and your coat up today. [Racked]

Prepare for a red-carpet death match. Gwyneth Paltrow and Nicole Kidman have signed on as costars in The Danish Girl, with Kidman playing a post-op transsexual and Paltrow her supportive wife. We know press junkets are a long way off, but we’re looking forward to the Valentino and L’Wren Scott showdowns. [EW]

Yea, Nay, Or Eh: Drew Barrymore Whips It Into Shape


Drew Barrymore has been responsible for some…let’s call them fearlessly off-kilter ensembles. (Remember those overalls?) That’s not a judgment. Frankly, her goofy adorability is her best accessory and shines brightly even as we wonder, “What was she thinking?” But at last night’s premiere for her directorial debut, Whip It, Barrymore went for infallible elegance in a black L’Wren Scott dress, which looks like leather but is in fact lacquered tweed. The look didn’t entirely throw a cloak of ho-hum good taste over her personality. The dress had a saucy red exposed zipper on the back that Barrymore matched with red satin knotted pumps. Yes, her hairdo leaves something to be desired, but in all, we’d say it was a pretty good night for little Gertie. What do you think of Drew’s sophisticated moment?

Sports Center


The stereotype: The athleticism of the fashion person goes not much further than the lifting of a Nina Ricci Fall 2009 platform or the mad dash of a Party Pentathlon to make good on five RSVPs in a single night. (Ed. note: Neither are mean feats.) In reality, however, we have some true sportswomen and men in our midst, from a vast slew of surfers (Julie Gilhart, Patrick Robinson, Narciso Rodriguez, Erin Wasson) to tennis players (L’Wren Scott, Tory Burch) to divers (Riccardo Tisci, Peter Dundas)—and so much more. Click here to read all about how the style set plays hard all summer long.

Fluff Pieces On The Spring Catwalks


The current climate may have consumers reaching for the classic and unadorned, but a number of designers are making a case for fashion escapism come spring. September saw a flurry of marabou-trimmed frocks on the runways (click for slideshow). At his prehistoric-themed show, Christopher Kane played geometric leather skirts against fuzzy feather tunics. Francesco Scognamiglio and Koi Suwannagate both laid on the plumes for unique takes on the peplum waist. And for a grand evening—or a walk down the aisle—who wouldn’t dream of making an entrance in L’Wren Scott’s strapless siren gown with wispy train? Click here to see more Spring plumage.

The Curious Case Of Angelina’s Buttons


While we at Style File are pretty sure that it’s a coincidence, we’re still compelled to call attention to the rake-slim white wool L’Wren Scott sheath that Angelina Jolie wore last night to the New Orleans premiere of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, which was embellished by covered buttons on the back and slit. Does the mother to a multi-culti brood of six have time to consider subtly thematic red-carpet looks? Probably not—even with the most sharply honed of multitasking abilities. Sometimes those fashion stars just align.
