Mad Men costume designer Janie Bryant is launching her own line, Mod by Janie Bryant, on QVC. It’s inspired by fifties and sixties fashions, like those on Mad Men, but Jon Hamm, sadly, doesn’t come with purchase. [WWD]
Isabella Rossellini has designed a new bag for Bulgari (pictured), a rectangular tote available in four versions, including ponyskin and patent. The bag has a snail-print lining—”We chose the snail, just because my bag is a little bit like my home,” Rossellini said—though presumably not snails in flagrante as in the ageless actress’ “Green Porno” series for Sundance. [WWD]
Look out, London. Harrods has announced it’s eyeing a second location—in Shanghai. [Vogue U.K.]
And if this morning’s Lady Gaga performance on the Today show wasn’t enough for you, there’s a Gaga lookalike contest being held at noon in Union Square. The winner gets tickets to her last show at MSG. Monsters, to your marks! [Broadway World]
Looking for the models this Fourth of July? Try the Hamptons. Ginta Lapina (left), Hilary Rhoda, Tiiu Kuik, and Eniko Mihalik will all be on Long Island, while Doutzen heads for Holland and Alexandra Richards home to Connecticut. (Pity poor Jacquelyn Jablonski—she’ll be working Couture in Paris.) [Modelinia]
Victoria Beckham knows a thing or two (or three) about luxury, so we guess from that vantage point, her new appointment as a “creative design executive” for Range Rover makes sense. [WWD]
Get your sneak peek at the costumes from the new season of Mad Men—and a peek beneath them. No surprise here: Sultry secretary Joan Holloway stays on message all the way down to her lacy, jewel-toned slip. [Racked]
Rumored yesterday, confirmed today. Anne Christensen has resigned her post at T; new EIC Sally Singer is officially on the hunt for her replacement. [WWD]
The ink’s on the paper: Madonna has signed with Iconix to create a line of Material Girl fashions, starting with a juniors’ line at Macy’s. Personally, we’d have preferred a Like a Virgin-inspired bridal line. [WWD]
We’re not opposed to the idea of Mad Men Barbies. But if they’re going to be made, at least give them Christina Hendricks’ legendary curves. A hipless Joan Holloway? What a waste. [NYT]
Speaking of mini mannequins, one grumbler is claiming—rather publicly—that Givenchy axed five models the night before the show, after insisting on exclusivity for its girls. [Page Six]
And Love will live-cast the Miu Miu Fall ’10 show on its site at 1 p.m. EST. [Love]
Last night, Carsten Höller, the artist responsible for the famous slide that carries Miuccia Prada from her office to her car, made an interesting point about a criminally overlooked part of her sensational presentation: the food and drink she served her guests. Höller insisted Miuccia puts almost as much thought into these details as the clothes. Possibly an exaggeration, but there’s no doubt that the choux pastries were a subtle extrapolation of the ample curves on the catwalk. And the Scotch and water and Rusty Nail cocktails were just the sort of drink a strong-willed woman would have ordered in the golden era of the bombshell that Prada was referencing. Christina Hendricks in Mad Men? Yes, please.
