Naomi Campbell’s well-practiced snarl has found a perfect new outlet: The Fall ’11 Givenchy campaign, shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. Campbell is one of the major faces to front spots for Givenchy’s feline women’s collection, alongside Natalia Vodianova, Kristen McMenamy, and house favorite Mariacarla Boscono. (Though unlike in seasons past, each is shot separately, rather than in a roving pack.) Meanwhile, Rob Evans and Jonathan Marquez do the honors for the Rottweiler-inspired men’s collection. Above, the exclusive debut of the Naomi image (and below, a look at Evans’). Plus, the exclusive behind-the-scenes video, featuring the entire cast on the growl. Grrr!
Riccardo Tisci’s bags and shoes have long been available to e-commerce shoppers on Barneys’ Web site, but those after his ready-to-wear have had to repair to stores to get their fix. As of tomorrow, that all changes. Tisci’s collections hit the store’s e-tail site tomorrow, and the assembled parties are celebrating as fashion partiers these days prefer to: With a short, atmospheric film, and plenty of leopard. The designer’s muse and longtime friend, Mariacarla Boscono (above, in a still from the video), lent her talents for the clip, directed by SHOWStudio.com alum Ruth Hogben, who’s worked previously with the likes of Gareth Pugh and Celine. The video, goes up on Barneys.com tomorrow.
A Lighter Shade Of Pale At Givenchy, Wedding Bells For Lauren And Mr. Lauren, The Latest From London, And More…
Riccardo Tisci is crowning a new model of the moment—just when his last discovery, his longtime assistant, transgender model Lea T., is being celebrated more than ever. His next campaign will star albino model Stephen Thompson (left) alongside Mariacarla Boscono, Daphne Groeneveld, and Iris Strubegger. Albino skin tones are “very near my world,” Tisci isaid. [WWD]
Congratulations to fashion scion David Lauren, who reportedly proposed to longtime girlfriend Lauren Bush on Friday night. [Page Six]
Step right up, dedicated shoppers: Chloe Sevigny’s Resort ’11 collection for Opening Ceremony goes on pre-sale today. Nothing says “Merry Christmas” like one of Sevigny’s Robert Mapplethorpe-print T-shirts. (But probably not for grandma’s stocking, as most of them are NSFW.) [Fashionologie]
In London, Mulberry’s on top. The resurgent brand tripled its profits in the last sixth months, was named Brand of the Year at the British Fashion Awards, and is now opening a new Bond Street flagship that’s a giant 5,400 square feet. In other words: A whole lotta Alexas. [WWD]
And speaking of London fashion, Nicole Farhi’s named a new men’s designer: Massimo Nicosia, a veteran of Pringle of Scotland and Alessandro Dell’Acqua. [Vogue U.K.]
Usually, you wouldn’t want to see this much skin at a 90th birthday party. But when it’s a 90th birthday party for Paris Vogue, all bets are off. Carine Roitfeld and her Gallic crew threw a bal masqué in Paris last night, and though the faces were obscured, not much else was. Sheer—which has been all over the Spring runways—was the look of the night. The charge was led by the hostess, in a see-through, leopard-spotted Givenchy number, and her heiress apparent, daughter Julia Restoin-Roitfeld, in a gold-embellished sheer number from Peter Dundas’ Spring ’11 Pucci runway. Natalia Vodianova, Mariacarla Boscono, Lily Donaldson, and Bianca Brandolini d’Adda were also feeling the transparent vibe. (Some, like Maryna Linchuk, above, went for sheer masks, too.)

First Chanel, then Louis Vuitton, now Lanvin—the rush to Saint-Tropez continues. Elbaz and co. are the latest to open a shop in St.-T, and they’ve got other plans too—including a refurbished Web site and the new Fall campaigns, like the Meisel-shot womenswear ads starring Magdalena Frackowiak, Anja Rubik, and Mariacarla Boscono (pictured).

The World Cup commentator you’ve gotta read is…Hilary Alexander?! Turns out the Telegraph‘s fashion critic has a healthy extracurricular interest in footer—and she’s been live-tweeting games at @hilaryalexander. [Fashionista]
It’s a good time to be a young designer in London. Nike is the latest brand to collaborate with emerging designers, giving Katie Eary, SIBLING, Julian J Smith, Tim Soar, Felder Felder, and Hannah Marshall free reign to rejigger the N98 track jacket. The results, predictably, are loud. [Vogue U.K.]
And bad news for NYC shoppers: As of Saturday, all of Manhattan’s Apple stores are sold out of iPhone 4s. If you want one, you’ll just have to…oh, yeah, order online. Why wasn’t everyone doing this in the first place? [Racked]
