Designers On The Set, Elle For Victoria, And More…

-------

In case you were getting bored with the Box’s usual lineup (Siamese twin pole dancers? again?), fear not, change is afoot. [Page Six]

Designers Tory Burch and Georgina Chapman filmed guest spots for Gossip Girl earlier this week. Acting-wise, this shouldn’t be too big of a stretch for either of them. [WWD]

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]

Elle Macpherson is the new face of Victoria Beckham‘s collection. Well, unofficially. [Daily Mail]

Diane Gets Disheveled, Posh Gets To Judge, And More…

-------

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.

Posh, Becks Play With Ropes, Ladders For Armani

-------

Since Victoria Beckham is one of my favorite (and valid) celebrity designers, I won’t be making any snide ladder climbing metaphors about her new Emporio Armani underwear campaign that just came out this morning. The images are quite the opposite of last season’s, which featured the global brand ambassadors languidly smoldering in some sort of boudoir. The latest pics, also shot by photog pair extraordinaire Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, are somewhat more athletic in nature: Mrs. Becks climbing a ladder sporting a gravity-defying ponytail, heels and not much more, and the pair posing with an enormous rope that I’m associating with the one that you were required to clamber up in grade school gym class. The couple (who together make a cool 32 million GBP for their work) certainly do justice to the unmentionables, and their perfect physiques make you want to hit the gym or perhaps move to an alternate airbrushed universe. What do you think of the new ad?

Federer’s Match Set, Jerry Hall In The Buff, And More…

-------

Roger Federer, fashion’s favorite tennis pro, welcomed twin girls Thursday. Doubles, anyone? [People]

Like mother, like daughter: While Jerry Hall and Mick Jagger offspring Georgia May is making headlines with her topless ad campaign for Hudson Jeans, Hall is getting ready to bare it all onstage. “Nudity is always terrifying, even now,” the 53-year-old admits.
Better her than us. [Daily Mail]

Who doesn’t love a through-the-years fashion retrospective? Of Victoria Beckham? Enjoy. [Vogue U.K.]

A Decades outpost will be popping up in Tokyo from August 28 to September 26. Chances are high Harajuku girls will totally freak out. [Fashion Week Daily]

In Love With Loewe

-------

Will Fall shape up to be a rehash of Balmainia and biker chic? Tough to say, but we’re getting our first inclinations of the season’s key silhouettes now that celebrities are hitting the red carpet and airport runways in longer sleeves and heavier fabrics. A surprising early favorite is Stuart Vevers’ polished Parisian look for Loewe. Victoria Beckham paired a polka-dot blouse with voluminous white trousers at Heathrow earlier this week, and yesterday Sienna Miller posed for the London premiere of G.I. Joe in a chic military-inspired studded top and pleated pants from the label. Though both ensembles are actually from Vevers’ Spring collection, not Fall, we’re excited at the prospect of understated, timeless elegance becoming the look du jour. What do you think everyone will be wearing come September?
