Yea, Nay, Or Eh? Demi Moore, Rock Star

-------

Demi Moore chose a minimally structured column gown from Victoria Beckham’s Fall ’10 collection for the Hollywood Domino pre-Oscars gala last night. A tricky silhouette? Not for a red-carpet pro like her. The royal blue against Demi’s dark hair is a great color combination—especially now, when the fashion world is giving a full-on embrace to once maligned blue/black mixing—but what really sells the whole look is her accessories. Against her understated dress, her stone-encrusted Bulgari clutch, which might seem busy with other outfits, really shines. Finished off with Jack Vartanian jewels and tumbling, loose curls, this is a look we want Moore of. You?

Blasblog: A Perfect 10?

-------

When I started contributing to 10 magazine, founder Sophia Neophitou—who does double duty as the fashion director of Harper’s Bazaar U.K.—laid down one ground rule: no celebrity coverage. (Which, as you can imagine, was something that took me a while to wrap my head around.) So I was a little surprised when 10‘s editorial team told me the cover girl and guy for their tenth anniversary edition. Not just any celebrities, but arguably two of the world’s biggest celebrities—a his-and-hers set, David and Victoria Beckham.

But the high-fashion glossy, luckily, isn’t going tabloid, as the previously unreleased images above show. “This was a totally organic decision that began with a conversation between myself and Victoria purely from a fashion angle,” Neophitou told me. “We had a very long conversation about her giving herself to me in terms of editorial context and what I wanted to do. She agreed that for this project she would give herself in a purely editorial way, as opposed to in a celebrity context.” I guess that’s a long way of saying she pushed Posh past her all-too-familiar oversized sunnies, sky-high stilettos, and paparazzi pout. And looking at the Neophitou-styled shots, lensed by Cedric Buchet, she did. “We wanted to create images that were less predictable,” Neophitou continues. “I wanted to create a vulnerability and a sensuality and an honesty.” Color me pleasantly surprised—and already eager to see what 10 will do for its 20th.

Fantastic Ms. Fox

-------

Much anticipated and much debated, Megan Fox’s Armani underwear campaign is here. (The starlet replaces Posh—ahem, Victoria Beckham—as the female face of the line; fellow footballer Cristiano Ronaldo will replace hubby Becks, but he and Fox won’t appear together.) And while the world does not exactly lack for pictures of Megan in states of undress, we think the Mert and Marcus-shot pics look pretty good. Transformers 3, on the other hand…

Finally, a bit of insight into Chanel’s beauty ambassadors: “I test out product before it hits stores, and give my opinion and what I love about it,” Chanel It girl Leigh Lezark revealed. Remind us again where applications for this gig are? [WWD]

Romance rumor mill: Kate Hudson and A-Rod call it quits. And we were so looking forward to Rodriguez and Keith Urban getting to know each other at all those Nine premieres. [Page Six]

Courtney Love lost custody of Frances Bean. Does that mean Bean’s new West Village crash pad is up for grabs? What, too soon? [TMZ]

Gisele and Tom are living with a nameless baby. According to Dad, the supermodel changed her mind at the last minute, and now the two of them are never together long enough to pick something out. That’s what we call priorities. [People]

Galliano’s Christmas Spirit, Bailey’s New Role, And More…

More info on John Galliano’s Dior Christmas tree for Claridge’s has surfaced since we first reported on it , and it sounds as awesome as we expected. In lieu of pine needles there will be “crystals, orchids, vines, and lianas,” as well as a leopard, which we’re pretty sure will be fake, but really, we can’t be too sure. [WWD]

Rumor rejected: News that Victoria Beckham was thinking of starting a modeling agency has been denied by her people. She’s got a line of dresses to design, thank you, and those sheaths do not get made by themselves. [Vogue U.K.]

Christopher Bailey gets a raise. We didn’t think you could go much higher than creative director, but Bailey is now Burberry‘s first ever chief creative officer. [WWD]

Last year’s YSL auction was not for the bargain shopper, but this month’s second round may be (slightly) more budget-friendly. Art Deco enamel boxes will go for around $450, and Louis Vuitton travel bags start at $750. All in all, a small price to pay for a piece of Yves. [WWD]

They call me Mr. Nils. One-time Nina Ricci designer Lars Nilsson is launching a menswear line, which will debut in January at Pitti Immagine Uomo. [WWD]

H&M: big in Japan. Fast-fashion chains like Forever 21 and H&M are taking over Tokyo as luxury labels like Louis Vuitton and Giorgio Armani curtail plans for expansion. If we see an increase of Catholic schoolgirl styling at H&M, we’ll know why. [WSJ]
