Crispy whites always get a lot of love this time of the year, so here at Style.com, we’re paying tribute to the reliably chic, flattering look our editors have coined “summer blacks.” Chalk it up to our New Yorker mentalities, but on any given day at the office during the warmer months, you’re likely to catch Nicole Phelps wearing her trusty 3.1 Phillip Lim jumpsuit, Katharine K. Zarrella donning inky Comme des Garçons, and the Williamsburg-based editors tucking vintage band tees into their dark skinnies. But we’re not the only ones championing—in the words of Jay Z—all-black everything this season. Celebrities from Zoe Saldana to Sofia Coppola have recently been spotted in head-to-toe onyx outfits, while the slimming noncolor remains a staple for models-off-duty like Anja Rubik, Liya Kebede, and Daria Strokous (not that they need the help). Designers including Lanvin’s Alber Elbaz and Josh Goot featured LBDs and graphite crop tops in their respective Resort lineups—more proof that black is, well, the new black.
My daughter is definitely brainwashing me. Nearly everything in my house has something to do with a Disney princess. For a while it was all about Snow White, and now everything is about Ariel from The Little Mermaid. With the news breaking this week that Sofia Coppola is in talks to direct a new Little Mermaid film, I’m getting excited to see what kind of world Coppola will come up with, and who will play her red-haired sea maiden. I guess my daughter is one on-the-pulse 5-year-old. Here, a slideshow of ten items that will transport you under the sea.
Sofia Coppola is apparently in talks to direct a new Little Mermaid film, according to IMDb. But don’t expect animated redheads and cartoon crabs—this flick will be of the live-action variety of the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale. We wonder if she’ll tap Marc Jacobs to design the fins.
For those who didn’t get their fill after Marc Jacobs’ decadent, retrospective farewell show in October, the designer today presented a bonus swan song for Louis Vuitton: the Spring ’14 campaign. Lensed by Steven Meisel, the ads pay tribute to Jacobs’ Vuitton muses, including Catherine Deneuve, Sofia Coppola, Caroline de Maigret, Gisele Bündchen, Edie Campbell, and Fan Bingbing. They may have been Jacobs’ inspirations, but we have a feeling these leading ladies will stay in the Vuitton family under Nicolas Ghesquière’s reign.
Ever wonder where Sofia Coppola goes to relax, who cuts Natalie Portman’s hair, or where Lady Gaga gets her vintage treasures? How about Isabel Marant’s favorite spot for scrambled eggs? French Vogue contributor Carole Sabas divulges all this and more in two new books: Fashion Insiders’ Guide to Paris and Fashion Insiders’ Guide to New York, both of which hit stores on May 7. A Parisian living in New York, Sabas has previously published tomes detailing hotspots in Miami, Paris, Brooklyn, and Manhattan, but the 2013 editions offer updated, personal picks from the likes of Karl Lagerfeld, Viktor & Rolf, Gaia Repossi, Alexander Wang, and Yaz Bukey. Needless to say, fashion’s best-kept secrets—like under-the-radar eateries, flea markets, and late-night spots—are no more. Sabas’ useful, privileged info is accompanied by the illustrations of Caroline Andrieu (above, left) and Bernadette Pascua (above, right). However, in her Paris intro, the author warns that the books are not meant to be authoritative. “Sometimes the crowd in a restaurant will look more appealing than your food. And you may wonder why the tastemakers still come here season after season. Ask them and they’ll shrug: ‘The owner is crazy.’” But, she adds, when you follow the fashion set, “expect to be surprised, bewitched, puzzled, maybe disappointed at times, but always dazzled.”
