Jean Paul Gaultier is the latest designer rumored to be getting the Target treatment. First Rodarte, now the French…what’s next? Maybe a diffusion line of looks from Cristobal Balenciaga’s archives. Sure to have mass appeal. [WWD]
As if the abuse he’s been getting in the blogosphere hasn’t been enough, Kanye West has now been invited to a formal roast. Whatever will they do for material? [Page Six]
You may have heard that Burberry is showing in London this season. More than once. Well, it’s a big deal, OK? So big that Christopher Bailey is documenting the whole thing on his cell phone. [The Moment]
Silence, haters. Victoria Beckham is a real designer. Jennifer Lopez is the latest very-famous-person to wear one of Posh’s dresses, and she wore it, drumroll please, to the White House. This means the likelihood of MObama wearing Beckham just got exponentially higher. [Daily Mail]
Som and Tom? Perhaps. Peter Som and Tommy Hilfiger are reportedly discussing bringing Som on as a “part-time creative consultant.” Som, who was formerly the creative director at Bill Blass, presumably knows a lot about American sportswear. [WWD]
Richard Chai—Love is the name of the designer’s new “boy-loves-girl-girl-loves-boy’s-clothing” take on contemporary dressing, and the slouchy, languid-looking separates for men and women will be what guests see at [Chai's] runway show next week. His original, higher-end line isn’t going anywhere, you just have to see it at the showroom. [WWD]
And Chai’s making Keds! They’re for men, but we kind of want them for ourselves. We don’t think he would mind. [WWD]
Drama! Katie Holmes’ new line—Holmes & Yang—has bumped BFF Victoria Beckham‘s dVb denim line out of the rotation at Maxfield’s in L.A. In the cutthroat world of boutique buying, we’re sure that’s exactly how it happened. [Page Six]
Now that you mention it, Georgia May Jagger does look an awful lot like Brigitte Bardot. [Telegraph U.K.]
Sean Lennon and his girlfriend with the amazing name—Kemp Muhl—re-created Lennon’s parents’ (you know, John and Yoko) famous nude Rolling Stones cover. Except this time Lennon is fully clothed and Muhl is totally naked. Convenient, Sean. [Huffington Post]
Swaim Hutson of Obedient Sons & Daughters is the new guy at Generra.
And by new guy we mean creative director. [WWD]
The Brits recommend wearing leather (hint: it’s going to be big for fall) like “a louche French actress.” So, not like a Hells Angel? [Guardian U.K.]
Spike Jonze may be a film guy, but he’s been linked to fashion types (ex-wife Sofia Coppola then, Michelle Williams now), so his film-inspired accessories collection for Opening Ceremony was really just a matter of time. The film is Where the Wild Things Are, which means fangs, feathers, and horns. Grrr. [W Editors’ Blog]
Do you miss Olivier Theyskens? Yeah, us too. Get yourself an O.T. fix this January when Olivier Theyskens: The Other Side of the Picture, a photo-heavy tome from Assouline with pics by Julien Claessens, comes out. And sigh. [WWD]
In case you were getting bored with the Box’s usual lineup (Siamese twin pole dancers? again?), fear not, change is afoot. [Page Six]
First skinny jeans, now this. Fellows are sporting “Afros, mohawks, dreadlocks, and pompadours” all over town. [NYT]
Images of Jil Sanders’ debut line for Uniqlo hit the Internet on Monday, but details were lacking. Here’s the deal: J+ launches in the U.S. on October 1 and prices range from $21 to $155. [WWD]
Diane Kruger dishes on her Inglourious Basterds style: “The best [part of this role] was actually getting down and dirty. To have the ripped skirt, the [bullet] hole in the leg—being disheveled is usually more fun.” Cue bullet hole-patterned leggings for Spring. [WWD]
Paula Abdul’s out and Posh is in. She’s not coming on as a permanent judge, but Victoria Beckham is slated to tell it like it is on the next season of American Idol. Remember, she was a singer first. [E! Online]
Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears, the opera? It’s not too good to be true. Timberbrit is a “tragic tale…Timberlake returns after a long absence to win back Spears’ love, but in the end she chooses the audience’s love above all else.” We almost cried just reading that.
