Nothing has been confirmed about Olivier Theyskens’ possible exit from Nina Ricci at the end of his contract and his potential replacement Louis Vuitton studio director Peter Copping, but it sure is fun to speculate. Real life: just like high school.
Page Six founder James Brady died Monday, but his legacy and disciples (Perez et al.) live on.

Now, graphic designer Dana Veraldi, who previously immortalized the likes of Yves Saint Laurent, Prince, and Tory Burch in line-drawings on white cotton jersey, has released an Olivier tee double-header, with shirts featuring both Zahm and Nina Ricci designer Theyskens— two Frenchmen, both with iconic hair, facial and otherwise. Which one would you wear? The tees are $45.00 at www.deerdana.com.

You can take the boy out of L.A., but you can’t take L.A. out of the boy. Jeremy Piven escapes from Broadway using ye olde sushi excuse, but we know he just couldn’t handle the weather.
This is a tough one. The apparent union of The Devil Wears Prada‘s Emily Blunt and The Office‘s John Krasinski poses a quandary for celebrity-couple moniker makers. Perez suggests Bluntinski; we like Krasunt. What about you, Style Filers?
