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!

Natalia Vodianova is working on a new fairy-tale book for your coffee table.

Balenciaga lately got a museum exhibition in San Francisco, but the late Spanish couturier is about to have a home to call his own—and in his hometown, no less.

Everything’s coming up Koma. London designer David Koma is one of the several designers who, it was announced last night, will be supported by London’s NEWGEN sponsorship for the upcoming season.

Karl Lagerfeld has yet to make his first venture in comic books, but in the meantime, he’s adding crystal to the list of his innumerable side projects. The designer has teamed up with Orrefors to create a line of crystal stemware and vases, launching this fall. What better glass for your custom Karl-designed can of Diet Coke? [WWD]
A massive show of vintage Dior opened today at Moscow’s Pushkin Museum. Inspiration Dior—and, of course, its lavish opening party—drew Russia’s fashionable elite, including Natalia Vodianova, to the museum last night. Camille Miceli, the label’s artistic director for costume jewelry, hit the Russian capital for the occasion—she sent back the following snaps from her visit abroad.
“With Virginie [Mouzat, of Le Figaro] and Mathilde after our visit of the Kremlin, which I highly recommend—especially the jewelry treasures.” Continue Reading “Dior’s Camille Miceli’s Postcard From Moscow” »
The wrap dresses were on full display Saturday night as Diane von Furstenberg opened her Journey of a Dress exhibition at the Pace Gallery in Beijing’s 798 art district this weekend.
Guests including Jessica Alba (above), Natalia Vodianova (top, with von Furstenberg), and Charlie Rose mingled amid a paean to the designer’s trademark glamour and independent spirit (vintage magazine covers; DVF portraits by Warhol, Clemente, and Testino; maybe a wrap dress or 30), rubbing elbows with Chinese VIPs ranging from model Du Juan to artists Yi Zhou and Li Songsong. (The latter two contributed DVF-inspired works of their own). “Diane is someone who has lived life to the fullest,” said Hung Huang, who—as a cultural icon, television personality and publisher of the lifestyle magazine iLook—also knows something about living life to the fullest. “Chinese women have been gaining in position over the past 30 years, and Diane can be an inspiration.”
First shown in Moscow and São Paulo, the exhibition follows up on a lavish Red Ball thrown in Shanghai last Thursday—all part of von Furstenberg’s concerted effort to make a splash in the booming Chinese market. “It was like a red dream, a movie,” von Furstenberg said of the Shanghai event, which featured performances, masked attendants, and who-knows-how-many red lanterns at artist Zhang Huan’s sprawling studio compound. And what of the difference between the two cities? “Beijing is power,” she said.
