The Next Met, Gaga For Gaga, And More…

-------


Dress code: Khaki Chic. Maybe you’re still feeling the turban-and-bunny-ear model spectacular that was this year’s Costume Institute Ball, but it’s time to move on. Next year’s exhibit has been announced—American Woman: Fashioning a National Identity—to be co-chaired by Oprah Winfrey, Gap’s Patrick Robinson, and, of course, Anna Wintour. Jeans will probably not be allowed, theme notwithstanding. [WWD]

If you need something a little more substantive than the Daily to thumb through while you’re waiting for the shows this week, pick up The New Yorker‘s semiannual Style Issue. There’s a profile of Burberry‘s Christopher Bailey, an inside look at “online shoe utopia” Zappos, and a piece on West Coast interior-design maven Kelly Wearstler. You show em, ladies—fashion people are pretty and smart! [The New Yorker]

Lady Gaga—Marc Jacobs‘ rumored after-party entertainment this Fashion Week—is booked at the Box. For Givenchy. Can you say pant-less bidding war? [WWD]

George Clooney goes public with his new girlfriend. We weep. [People]

A Tale Of Two Riccis, Angie On Top, And More…

Nina Ricci for $50? It’s true. Get thee to Paris. [WWD]

The other Ricci—Christina—is reportedly un-engaged from her super-tall comedian boyfriend, Owen Benjamin. [People]

Oprah relinquishes her Most Powerful Celebrity in the World crown to this year’s Forbes list topper, Angelina Jolie. Apparently Kung Fu Panda was better than we thought. [OMG Yahoo]

Kate Moss is decidedly not pregnant, so much so that she’s threatening to sue Now Magazine for their lamentable fact-checking job. [WWD]

Versace’s chief executive is rumored to be handing in his resignation tomorrow in Milan, due, some believe, to tension with Donatella over her “lavish lifestyle.” Isn’t “lavish lifestyle” the definition of Versace? [NYT]

Mrs. John L. Strong, RIP

-------

We’re a Cartier stationery girl, but we couldn’t help but feel a twinge when we received a press release earlier today announcing that Mrs. John L. Strong, the Madison Avenue stationer to tastemakers like Oprah Winfrey, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, and Karl Lagerfeld, is shuttering after 80 years in business. Nannette Brown, the company’s CEO and creative director, explained in a statement that “investor’s failure to finance the business’ expansion plans combined with a challenging retail and economic environment, left the company with no alternative but to close its doors.” Fashion’s Night Out, the retail initiative that Mayor Bloomberg announced yesterday, can’t come soon enough.

Party Politics: Navigating The Inaugural Scene

-------

Inaugurations are often a painful cocktail of mother-of-the-bride gowns and cash bars. But Obama-mania has Washington, D.C., poised for what may be the biggest party there since, well, ever. BET kicks things off on Saturday night honoring Mary J. Blige and Magic Johnson, among others at a gala at the Warner Theatre. The balls get started in earnest on Sunday with a fête honoring The Washington Post‘s African-American-focused Web site The Root, which is expected to draw Spike Lee, Sarah Jessica Parker, and possibly Oprah—though her inaugural plans have been more closely guarded than Obama himself. Mayor Adrian Fenty will be keeping things more low-key at the Embassy of Kuwait, mixing a who’s who of famous Washington wonks (Bob Woodward, Arianna Huffington), deep-pocketed potential donors (Mort Zuckerman, Ronald Lauder), and Hollywood heavyweights (George Lucas) with maybe a Tory Burch and an Elisabeth Shue thrown in for good measure. Meanwhile Shepard Fairey ups the cool quotient with a preview of his new exhibit Manifest Hope, where Santogold, Moby and De La Soul will perform.
