Garance Doré Is Stressed Out

-------

“This is so stressful!!!” Garance Doré wrote on her blog today. The reason: For the first time since she began posting her expressive fashion illustrations six years ago, Doré’s work will be available in her new online boutique. Starting today, fans can order posters of Doré’s favorite drawings from her site, like “The Last Smoke” or “Belle de Jour” for only $40 a pop—a fine addition to a holiday gift list. And beginning next week, limited-edition signed prints will be available for purchase. If she’s stressed out now, just wait until she’s got piles upon piles of prints to sign.

Revisiting The 2012 CFDA Awards, With New Reason To Celebrate

-------

The CFDA train steams ever forward—as last night’s CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund announcement party makes abundantly clear—but this morning, Style.com’s editors were revisiting one of the organization’s earlier glories: the 2012 CFDA Awards. We’re happy to announce that Style.com’s CFDA Awards coverage, for which we partnered with American fashion’s de facto governing body, won a MIN Award for best special section at the annual ceremony this morning. We won’t dwell too long on back-patting and congratulations. Instead, this seems like the perfect moment to take a spin back through some of the features and interviews we conducted around the awards, from a Q&A with Andrew Rosen on how fashion will move forward to a group chat with Scott “The Sartorialist” Schuman and Garance Doré on the similarities (and differences) in their process. And if there’s anything better to brighten up a chilly Wednesday than a visit with the devoted acolytes of Comme des Garçons (like Carolyn Wade, left), we haven’t found it. Plus, Tim Blanks grills Seth Meyers! Call it a weekday update. Click here to see it all.

The 2012 CFDA Award Nominees and Honorees

-------

The fashion set gathered at Diane von Furstenberg’s studio in the Meatpacking District this evening for the announcement of this year’s CFDA Award nominees and honorees. Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garçons is 2012′s International Award recipient. The moment DVF uttered her name, partygoers began wondering if the reclusive designer would attend the June 4 ceremony. But the biggest surprise of the night came in the Fashion Icon Award category, which Lady Gaga unforgettably took home last year. Johnny Depp, the first man to receive the prize, will follow in the pop star’s footsteps at Lincoln Center. In another first, Scott Schuman and Garance Doré (pictured, left) will accept the Media Award prize together. Tommy Hilfiger got the Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award nod. Below, the full list of honorees and nominees. Check back tomorrow for our complete report of tonight’s event.

Haute Holidays

-------

What do you give the girl (or guy) who has everything? That’s what Style.com’s senior market editor Marina Larroude set out to discover when she polled style setters and tastemakers about what they’d get their equally stylish pals for the holidays. It wasn’t always easy to find that special something—how do you get noted bibliophile Karl Lagerfeld a book he doesn’t have?—but the likes of Miranda Kerr, Jen Brill, Lily and Ruby Aldridge, Scott Schuman and Garance Doré, and more managed nicely. (And in the case of the Kaiser? Brill found a book she’s almost sure isn’t on his shelves: Bunny Yeager’s Camera in Jamaica.) Read on to find out what fashion’s royalty is getting this year.

Docs At First Sight

-------

You always remember your first—first kiss, first love, first job, first apartment—and Dr. Martens is banking that on that list of first reminiscences, you’ll fondly recall your first pair of Docs. (I personally remember getting detention for wearing a pair of the label’s oxblood combat boots with my Catholic school uniform.) Those epic firsts are the theme of the British brand’s fall “First and Forever” campaign, and to celebrate it, DM enlisted street-style power couple Scott Schuman and Garance Doré to host a breakfast and share a few of their own.

Or not, as the case may be. “I’m not going to talk about my first love,” Doré declared. (Following a nudge, she admitted, “Actually, Scott is the first.”) But she did go on to tell a laugh-a-minute story about her first big fashion spread—for French Elle—which she shot while still a relative novice. After breakfast, Schuman recalled to Style.com the first time he felt part of the fashion world. “I was walking in Paris and a big black car pulled over to me. The window rolled down and Carine [Roitfeld] stuck her head out and pointed at me. She said, ‘You, I like your pictures very much,’ then drove away.” He also had a first coinage to share: “fashion-week photographers,” which he think should replace street-style photographers as the working designation for those snapping away during fashion week. “They just take pictures at the show and then stretch posting them for a few months until the next set of shows,” he said. “I’m out on my bike riding around every day, looking for something new, not just editors wearing the latest Celine.”

Continuing the theme, Dr. Martens CEO David Suddens took the occasion to debut a short film called First Heartbreak, starring Agyness Deyn and Ash Stymest (who make a very handsome couple). This short accompanies the print ad campaign lensed by Gavin Watson, who is noted for his gritty portrayal of British youth subculture. Dr. Martens will also encourage users to share their own firsts on its various social media outlets.
