Roger Vivier And Uniqlo Are California-Bound, Tommy’s Tips, Nicole Kidman To Take On Princess Grace Role, And More…
French brand Roger Vivier has announced plans to open its third shop in the States. The latest space, which will house the label’s footwear and accessories as well as the limited-edition Rendez-Vous line, will be in Costa Mesa (the other two U.S. stores are in New York City and Miami).[WWD]
Uniqlo is also set to head west—this morning the retailer revealed that San Francisco is the site of its newest location. The flagship shop is the brands’ first U.S. location outside of New York and is set to open in the fall of 2012. [Uniqlo]
Tommy Ton shares his favorite e-tail picks with Shop Ghost, a new curated shopping site from Oyster contributing editor Stevie Dance. He also sounds off on a few wishes for the future of street style: more eyeglasses, more designers, more older-season items, and more babies. JakAndJil hopefuls, take note. [Shop Ghost]
Nicole Kidman is rumored to have won the role of Princess Grace for the new Olivier Dahan-directed film Grace of Monaco. Negotiations for the film, which will cost a projected $30 million to produce, are reportedly still being finalized. [Vogue U.K.]
Buy a shoe, plant a tree? They aren’t two activities that typically go hand in hand, but Paola Bay, the designer behind Italian footwear label Zoraide, has managed to blend them rather seamlessly.
“I am delighted to be able to plant a new tree for every shoe sold,” she tells Style.com. And the environmental-friendliness of her line, launched in 2008, does not stop there: “It is currently impossible to make eco shoes, due to a lack of eco materials—I call them ethic shoes. I started by doing some evening vegan styles by using eco-reptiles, [like] stamped and embossed calfskin, as crocodiles, lizards, anacondas, etc. are all going down in numbers.” All of those materials went into her latest Carnivorous Plants Fall ’12 collection (around $680), which caught our eyes during Milan fashion week, and the results are truly luxe (the likes of Madonna and Nicole Kidman, two of her celebrity clients, seem to think so, too). The collection is made up of vibrantly colored heels (pictured), each inspired by their namesake plant.
Zoraide, stocked at retailers like Thecorner.com and Gente in Rome, has also teamed up with Global Goods Partners, a nonprofit organization that facilitates the sale of fair-trade products made by local artisans worldwide, on a Red Carpet Goes Green capsule collection, targeted at celebrities interested in furthering the eco-conscious dialogue with their footwear choices. The shoes, like the Greta or the Marilyn, are named after “the most celebrated movie stars of the past who, if still with us, would be the most passionate about preserving our planet.” We are fairly certainly these iconic screen sirens might be as passionate about Zoraide shoes, too.
This morning, the nominees for the 18th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards were announced, marking the beginning of the 2012 Oscar race (and, more importantly, the red-carpet best-dressed competition). This year’s SAG Awards was ripe with newcomers and bright prints (cue: Hailee Steinfeld in the striped Prada dress that proved to be a game-changer for the teen star) and the awards show pros like Nicole Kidman, January Jones, and a pregnant Natalie Portman (who, of course, went on to win the Oscar for her Black Swan performance). What’s to come next year? We don’t have the answer just yet, but here are some pretty good hints (below). Topping the list is The Help, which leads with four nominations, and The Artist, with two nominations.

Uniqlo is the latest company to get the creative juices flowing for Japan. The retailer has tapped friends and collaborators like Karl Lagerfeld, Lady Gaga, Nicola Formichetti, Nicole Kidman, and Alber Elbaz to design a new series of tees to benefit the Japanese Red Cross. That’s Lagerfeld’s (left), which retails for a mere $19.99. It’s the most affordable Kaiser you’re going to get until his Macy’s collection finally hits stores. [WWD]
Speaking of Formichetti, the stylist and Mugler creative director has just been announced as one of the designers for BOFFO’s new season of Building Fashion, which allows those without freestanding stores to create pop-up retail spaces. Last season, Waris Ahluwalia, Richard Chai, and Siki Im created their own shops at BOFFO’s west Chelsea space; this season, Formichetti, Irene Neuwirth, Patrik Ervell, Ohne Titel, and The Lake & Stars will make their (temporary) mark in Tribeca.

It’s hard to miss Topshop’s towering Soho flagship, but it’s easy to miss its latest addition—a secret shop inside, where collaboration collections from Meadham Kirchhoff, Pamela Love, and Ann-Sofie Back will be on offer. Happy hunting. [Racked]
And today in collaborations: Christopher Kane x London taxis? Odd but true—the London-based designer has adapted a starry print from his Resort ’11 collection to “wrap” London’s iconic black cabs. [Vogue U.K.]
This weekend, the Kids’ Choice Awards and the Academy of Country Music Awards offered two takes on event dressing: young, short, and bright for the kids, glammed-out for the twang set.
At Friday’s Kids’ Choice Awards, the length of choice was mini. Miranda Cosgrove (above left) was the latest young Hollywood coup for Miu Miu; the iCarly starlet, whose show won for Favorite TV Show, wore a shocking pink, strapless gown by the label. Paris Hilton (above center) chose a macramé-inspired, high-necked option from Opening Ceremony. And Heidi Klum (above right), not to let a few youngsters show her up, went short in glittering Gucci.
At last night’s ACM Awards, the vibe was glitzier (the show was in Vegas, after all). There were plenty of people who could’ve toned down the spangle, but also several who did glamour right: Nicole Kidman (below right) in fur-accented L’Wren Scott, for one, and the evening’s big winner, Entertainer of the Year Taylor Swift (below left), in butter yellow Elie Saab Couture.
