Who says fashion isn’t art? On the heels of an exhibition of their designs at Cooper-Hewitt and a collection of sketches (delivered via cell phone) for LACMA, the Mulleavy sisters’ work will be showcased in an upcoming solo exhibition at MOCA, Black Swan tutus included. [MOCA]
Giles Deacon and Sophie Théallet are headed to Nine West—for a capsule collection, at least. Théallet’s bound-to-be-charming shoes are due in May, while Deacon’s futuristic kicks will drop this fall. [WWD]
Kate Middleton enthusiasts, your lucky day is almost here. Reiss’ sold-out Fall 2009 Nannette dress—the one Middleton wore in her engagement portrait—hits stores tomorrow. Queue up. [Elle U.K.]

Orange made a splash on the runways for Spring, but it remained to be seen whether anyone would brave the shade in the real world. Remained, that is, until last night. Drew Barrymore at Emmy Rossum both wore head-to-toe orange stepping out on opposite coasts: Barrymore, in floor-length Jil Sander, in Hollywood at Cover Girl’s 50th anniversary party, and Rossum, in J. Mendel, in New York on Live With Jimmy Fallon. (Chloë Sevigny, ever the early adopter, wore orange last Friday—but we’re honor-bound to report that it was as a Knicks color at a Knicks game.) Will there be more sunshine-bright looks to come? Time will tell. But if you’re looking for an entry point to the trend with a slightly smaller commitment, there’s always the runway-to-reality beauty trend of the moment, a bright orange lip, or Spring’s rash of brilliant accessories, hitting stores now: from left, Prada’s furs to Michael Kors’ ladylike handbag to Tila March’s two-tone tote.
For her acid-bright Spring 2011 shows, Miuccia Prada sent bold colors and workmanly shapes down both her men’s and women’s runways. But for the guys, she threw in an additional detail—bags and belt-slung sacs embroidered with oversized, varsity-jacket-style lettering (left). Now, the catwalk comes to stores. Starting January 15, backpacks, trolleys, and shopping bags in saffiano leather or camouflage print can be customized with made-to-order multicolored saffiano leather letters (right). The service will be available on prada.com and at twelve Prada stores worldwide. And while the letters were shown on the gents last September, we see no reason why a monogram-loving lady shouldn’t get in on the game, too.
Prada To China, A New Face (Maybe) At Paco Rabanne, “Mr. Armani’s Probably Gonna Kill Me,” And More…-------
Prada is Beijing bound. The Italian label is the latest to take its show on the road to China, where Miuccia Prada will present her Spring ’11 women’s collection (left)—with a few pieces created especially for the event—on January 22. [WWD]
The rumor mill is churning again, and this time it’s about the house of Paco Rabanne. Is Indian designer Manish Arora—a spangle-favoring boundary-pusher championed by Browns’ Joan Burstein—slated to helm the house’s return to ready to wear and revive its fortunes? [Racked]
Victoria Beckham’s bags apparently cause as much of a stir as her tabloid-friendly goings and comings in L.A. Her new accessories debuted this morning on Net-A-Porter—and sold out before noon. [@NETAPORTER]
Speaking of hard-to-get accessories, two lucky Parisian fans walked away from a Lady Gaga show with the Lady’s own mirrored Armani heels. “Mr. Armani’s probably gonna kill me,” she said, before tossing them into the audience. Video right this way. [Huffington Post]
And collab-a-minute Opening Ceremony has just announced its next group project: A line with Maison Martin Margiela. For the real challenge, we want to see Humberto and Carol team up with the reclusive Monsieur Margiela himself. [WWD]
Because—sigh—we’re still interested in such things despite our better judgment, we must dutifully report that Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is dressing up as a sexy pickle for Halloween. (She has an avowed appetite for the things.) Our suggestion for next year: turnip. [WWD]
A new feature on the financial-management site Mint.com allows users to see the average amount spent at various stores nationwide, based, it says, “on data aggregated anonymously from over 4 million Mint.com users.” The top shop for clothes/accessories/jewelry in New York? Prada, with an average per-visit spend of $639.87. [Data.Mint.com via Fashionista]
Kate Moss, who is no stranger to a microphone—she’s been guesting on albums and warbling for as long as she’s been dating rockers—took to the stage in Qatar, where she belted out Gershwin’s “Summertime” to an appreciative crowd. [Page Six]
And he may be a fictional character, but that’s not stopping him from releasing a book of his wit and wisdom. Sterling’s Gold by Mad Men‘s Roger Sterling—a.k.a. silver fox John Slattery—comes out mid-November. In recent episodes of the show, Sterling’s been shown struggling to complete it; looks like he’s just about wrapped it up. [Arts Beat]
