Stella Revamped


Stella McCartney isn’t one to do things in a small way. Today, the designer not only unveiled her made-over e-commerce site, but she also gave visitors a glimpse of her new Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott-photographed Fall ’11 ad campaign starring Natalia Vodianova (above), and rolled out a second edition of her iPad app, WWD reports. Online-only content is now a button click away—including backstage imagery from her runway shows or details on the gowns she designed for this year’s Met gala—as well as shopping that has one foot in the digital realm, one in the real world. Not ready to take the plunge on an e-tail buy? Use the site to schedule an in-store private shopping appointment, or reserve items to try on and pick up at the nearest McCartney boutique.

Cheburashka. Bremenskie Muzikanti. If you have a hard time pronouncing the table names at Natalia Vodianova’s White Fairy Tale Love Ball, you won’t be alone. “Natalia is driving the calligrapher crazy,” Giancarlo Giammetti said yesterday at his Left Bank home. The Russian supermodel is, as she put it, “in the last few hundred yards of a marathon,” preparing for the fundraiser for her Naked Heart Foundation being held at Valentino’s Chateau Wideville outside Paris tomorrow night. Vodianova’s kids’ favorite Soviet-era cartoons (Google the Russian names above for vintage clips) partly inspired the gala. “A charity fashion show isn’t a new idea; it’s been done by many people,” she said. “But I thought fairy-tale dresses—the ultimate Cinderella dresses—by the world’s top designers would be something interesting.” Forty-five of fashion’s finest agreed to create gowns for the evening’s auction. Vodianova thinks Donatella Versace’s kokoshnik dress (pictured) will be a hit. “She went for it,” she said. The funds raised will go to Naked Heart’s new efforts to support children with special needs. And what is the fairy-tale spinner herself wearing for the occasion? Valentino red, of course, “like Little Red Riding Hood.”

Exclusive: Naomi Campbell For Givenchy’s Fall ’11 Campaign


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!

Angie For Louis, Karen And Jack’s
Breakup Bash, A Celine Return, And More…


Angelina Jolie has gone bare for her Louis Vuitton “Core Values” campaign. Annie Leibovitz photographed Jolie in her own clothes (with a monogrammed Alto resting by her side—one that, by the way, is no longer in production), on a wooden boat in Cambodia. [WWD]

A swing bang humdinger—that’s the kind of bash Karen Elson and Jack White wanted to celebrate the making and (mostly breaking) of their six-year marriage. After Elson made her debut Bonnaroo performance Thursday night, the supermodel and rock star celebrated their divorce in unusual way, holding a party for family, friends, and animals in Nashville on Friday night.

Missed your chance the first time ’round? Now you can catch what slipped by: Celine is reissuing a six-item line of “Celine Classics” from the early days (i.e., about two years ago) of the Phoebe Philo administration. [T]

Natalia Vodianova is working on a new fairy-tale book for your coffee table. The model, who asked the likes of Tom Ford, Gareth Pugh, and Diane von Furstenberg to design dresses based on a white fairy-tale theme for her upcoming Love Ball charity event, was photographed by Paolo Reversi in a selection of these Cinderella gowns for a limited-edition book.

Natalia Rallies The Troops, Koma And Katrantzou Top This Season’s NEWGEN Winners, And More…


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. Queen Sofia of Spain inaugurated the Balenciaga Institute in his native Getaria, which showcases 90 of his designs; it opens to the public on Friday. [Racked]

Natalia Vodianova is spreading the love. This year, the model, who hosts a yearly charity Love Ball for the Naked Heart Foundation, has asked 40 of her designer friends to create dresses for auction at Christie’s. [Modelinia]

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. He shares the distinction with fellow young talents Holly Fulton, Mary Katrantzou, Louise Gray, and Michael Van Der Ham. [Vogue U.K.]

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]
