E-Commerce, A Ferragamo First

-------

“Ferragamo was my first big international campaign when I started modeling,” Elettra Wiedemann tells Style.com. “The house has always had special meaning for me.”

This week, she returns to the fold, serving as the exclusive model for the label’s online Fall 2011 trunk show, which marks the first time the Italian brand’s ready-to-wear offerings will be available on the Web. (Its current e-tail shop is accessories-only.) Wiedemann still remembers her first Ferragamo purchase. “I bought a pair of flats when I first started modeling to help my feet run around Milan and Paris to castings,” she says. This Friday, you can get your own—along with Fall’s houndstooth dresses, fur coats, glittering clutches, and more.

The Fall 2011 trunk sale begins this Friday, August 5, at trunkshow.ferragamo.com.

On Our Radar: Aquazzura

-------

Edgardo Osorio, the designer behind the new shoe collection Aquazzura, knows the luxury market. He’s spent ten years working with Salvatore Ferragamo, René Caovilla, and Roberto Cavalli, where most recently he’s been directing all of the label’s shoes, on and off the runway. But he also knows that not everyone can manage the luxury price point and that the market sorely needs options between the mass and the luxe. The Colombian-born, Florence-based designer, who was raised between Miami and London, aims to fill the gap. His shoes come in cashmere suede and baby calf, tricked out with anklet-chain details and adjustable-strap closures for a perfect fit, but top out at around $450 a pair. No wonder Barneys has already expressed interest.

Yea, Nay, Or Eh? Kristen Bell In Bloom

-------

The look in Burlesque may be all rhinestones, all the time—thanks to a little help from Swarovski, of course—but the look at Burlesque‘s London premiere was a hint more demure. Cher may have gone all-out for the London carpet with a bright orange wig and lacy, black Julien MacDonald, but co-star Kristen Bell played a more ladylike card: this sweet, back-pleated, floral-print dress from Stella McCartney’s Resort ’11 collection. With stick-straight hair and satin Ferragamo pumps, Bell lets the print do the work. We’d say the shift is a little short for January temperatures—it’s been hovering around 30 degrees Fahrenheit in London—but she’s putting on a brave face. What do you think of her blossoming look: yea, nay, or eh?

John Legend Mulls A Life Of Design

-------

It seems Kanye West may have some competition in the male-musician-with-a-knack-for-finer-threads department. “Sometimes, I think about it,” John Legend said last night when queried about starting his own fashion or accessories line. “I would probably do clothes first.” The singer-songwriter was a guest of honor at a party celebrating the launch of Ferragamo World, an eco-conscious range of men’s footwear with rubber soles designed to decompose three to five years after hitting the landfill. Proceeds go to the Acumen Fund’s anti-poverty efforts in South Asia and East Africa. Saturday Night Live‘s Seth Meyers, while not considering a namesake collection, was grateful for the new footwear option. “Guys are very knee-up people,” the funnyman noted. “I’m lucky the nice people at Ferragamo have me wearing much better shoes than I usually wear tonight. Great shoes are very important to my social life.”
