Michael Kors showed his Resort collection yesterday, but he preferred to call it “Destination.” Makes sense. There was a piece for wherever a stylish traveler might find herself headed when it hits stores in October: a sexy python-print cutout swimsuit for Phuket; a gorgeous fur long vest for Aspen; a super-feminine, all-organic cocktail dress for a crunchy weekend in San Fran. Me? Since I spend the holiday season with family in the heat, I can’t stop thinking about Kors’ croc wedges. Here’s the best part: They retail for under $500.
Tony nominee Catherine Zeta-Jones hit yesterday’s Robin Hood Foundation gala in Manhattan with husband Michael Douglas. Old Robin was known for green (both wearing the color and redistributing from the rich to the poor), but CZJ went scarlet for the evening, in a draped, one-shoulder dress from Michael Kors. The look is a refreshing alternative to the parade of short-and-tight frocks we’re used to seeing on stars, but some bold accessories and a lighter touch with hair and makeup—similar to how the dress was styled for Kors’ Resort 2010 presentation—would have made a stronger statement. What do you think? Are you a fan, or should Zeta-Jones be put on red alert?
News about the Met ball continues to pour in: It’ll be a battle of the Mad women, when Stefano Pilati brings January Jones and Tommy Hilfiger brings Christina Hendricks. The redhead will be in good company; Hilfiger is also said to have Mick Jagger and L’Wren Scott, John Currin, Zoe Kazan, Peter Som, and Jimmy Fallon at his table. Michael Kors goes for the catwalkers, hosting Carolyn Murphy, Natasha Poly, Chanel Iman, and former model/actresses Brooke Shields and Diane Lane, and Ralph Lauren will sit with Taylor Swift, Jessica Biel, and Justin Timberlake.

Chez YSL—Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé’s apartment, that is—is on the market. $31.4 million buys you a library, a music room, a gym, and plenty of mirrors. [Hint Mag]
The latest addition to Louis Vuitton’s stable of “Icons” for its heritage ad campaign? If the rumors are to be believed, Bono. Coincidentally (or not), Vuitton parent LVMH recently acquired Bono and wife Ali Hewson’s eco-friendly Edun label. [WWD]
More from the Sex and the City 2 front: For her first appearance onscreen, SJP wears (gasp!) Halston. Costume designer Pat Field also had to contend with the Middle Eastern prohibition on exposed shoulders when working on the Abu Dhabi-set film. [L.A. Times via Racked]
And speaking of SATC2, its stars have signed multimillion-dollar contracts not to reveal plot secrets. “I’ve signed my life away to say I won’t tell. I thought: ‘You have got to be kidding! This isn’t state secrets, it’s the f****** script for a movie!” said Samantha, er, Kim Cattrall. (Throw in a couple f******s and it can be hard to tell the difference.) [Vogue U.K.]
The popularity of floor-length skirts on the Fall runways suggests that the hemline index theory just might hold true, but Adam Lippes isn’t buying it. “Supposedly everything traces back to the economy these days, or Michelle Obama, but I think it’s just a reaction to all the hard looks we’ve been seeing for the past two or three years,” the ADAM designer told us. “It’s a shift to an easier way of dressing.” Lippes paired his billowy maxi dresses with chunky sweaters and slouchy boots, as did Richard Chai. Similarly, shoe-grazing slim knit skirts turned up at Michael Kors and Sonia Rykiel. And off the runway, meanwhile, photographers snapped girls toeing the line between winter and spring in long, bright numbers worn with cropped leather jackets.
