Haute Holographics


At Coachella back in April, rapper Tupac Shakur was brought back to life, in the form of a hologram, to perform on stage with Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre. The impressive technological feat not only ushered in a trend in music (the estates of Jim Morrison and Jimi Hendrix are reportedly now working on similar holographic performances), but also in art (an exhibition featuring holographic works by the likes of Chuck Close and Ed Ruscha opens at NYC’s New Museum July 18). Fashion is getting in on the action, too.

We’ve spotted holographic accessories everywhere this Resort season, from Proenza Schouler to Narciso Rodriguez to Stuart Weitzman. Jewelry designer Eddie Borgo is on board as well, working with the special treatment in shades of blue and pink. His first-ever handbag is also holographic. It can be worn across the body, as a clutch, or as a fanny pack, and you can even remove the straps and wear them as a necklace.

Steven Klein Exhibit Opens In Brazil, Ralph Lauren Drops Polo, Stuart Weitzman’s Birthday Surprise, And More…


Steven Klein’s USAnatomy exhibit kicked off last night at the Brazilian Museum of Sculpture in São Paulo, Brazil. W has a few shots of the rare Polaroids on exhibit, including a few images from his W Brad and Angela cover shoot from 2005. [W]

Polo Ralph Lauren Corp. is no more. Yesterday, the company decided to drop “polo” from its name and opted to go by Ralph Lauren Corp. from now on. [WWD]

Shoe designer Stuart Weitzman was treated to a surprise 70th birthday bash in New York Tuesday night at the Empire Hotel lobby bar. Of course, his cake was in the shape of a shoe box. We can only hope the center didn’t taste like leather, or stiletto. [Page Six]

On Our Radar: Thatcher’s Evolve Intarsia Dress


It’s going to be a big spring for Alisse Thatcher—the designer is launching two lines under her name, one of chic ready-to-wear and one of shapewear. Each is great, but the big news for me is Thatcher’s seamless Evolve dress, which combines both—it’s got the shapewear built right in. One less piece to wear is always welcome come summer, and with a cute patterned frock like this one, the slimming is just the icing on the cake. (Or whatever the low-fat equivalent is.) I’m planning to wear mine with Stuart Weitzman work boots (below, left) and an unbuttoned military shirt from the Gap for work, and to switch to my Jimmy Choo strappy sandals (below, right) and a big clutch when I meet my husband for date night.

Thatcher Evolve intarsia dress, $180, available in May at; Stuart Weitzman Loden green lace-up combat boot, $395, available at Stuart Weitzman, NYC, (212) 750-2555; Jimmy Choo Quito multi-strap sandals, $995, available at

Blasblog: Is Ping-Pong The New Poker?


A few years ago, when that whole poker trend started to take off, I felt kind of left out. All the men’s magazines were suggesting that the cool thing to do was to sit in basements, chomp on cigars, and play cards. Then suddenly, whenever I couldn’t sleep, I would turn on the TV and the only thing still on would be some fallen celebrity at a VIP Vegas championship. Still, I never knew a full house from a royal flush.

It’s why I was rather excited when I began hearing that Ping-Pong had pushed old poker face off the Trendy Sport du Jour pedestal. Not only do I boast some raw athletic ability (don’t laugh: I was Missouri’s 2000 Scholar Athlete), but I also have the advantage of years of beer pong played as a Midwestern youth. I tested these skills last night at Stuart Weitzman’s first annual Serve to Save Ping-Pong Tournament, which supports ovarian cancer awareness. And I’m just going to say it: I got moves. My partner and eventual competitor Joy Bryant had better moves, though, as she ended up knocking me out of the competition. But her rally didn’t last long. “I’ll go easy on you,” Weitzman himself offered, before he walloped her. Not that it was a fair fight by any means. Who knew that Mr. Weitzman was a serious Ping-Pong-er who even competed in the Jewish Olympics in Israel? I leave you with another fun fact: Susan Sarandon is a major Pongaloonie as well, and even part owner of the club, SPiN, where the tourney took place.

Stella, Gwyneth, Madonna: Just A Regular Girl’s Night In


Stella McCartney and Gwyneth Paltrow welcomed Madonna back to London yesterday with a girl’s night chez Madge. The boys (Guy, Rocco, and David) were off at the other estate, and Madge’s minions were busy unloading the gigantic framed Steven Klein picture of herself that she likes to travel with. Seriously.

Shortly after parting ways with Kate Hudson, Lance Armstrong started dating low-profiler Anna Hansen. Turns out the two are now expecting, a feat close to impossible, given the cyclist’s cancer battle. Oh Lance, you sly devil!

Shoe guru Stuart Weitzman wants to beat you in Ping-Pong. At stake: a lot of shoes, and your pride.
