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?
Billy Joel and his child bride, err, third wife, Katie Lee Joel, are getting a divorce, and yes, all the Movin’ Out jokes have already been made. More surprising? Yigal Azrouël’s reported role in the breakup. Not agreeing, just reporting. [Page Six]
Hollywood is looking for a new bride of Frankenstein, and they’d like her to be hot. So far, Scarlett Johansson and Anne Hathaway have been short-listed; personally, we think Megan Fox is a shoe-in. Who do you think should play the new bridezilla? [Page Six]
Serial separator Sean Penn has been linked to Lindsay Lohan, but sources blame Natalie Portman for the actor’s erratic marital behavior and his decision to drop out of two movies. Scandalous! And doubtful. [Page Six]
Diane Kruger was snapped post-Cannes Film Festival at LAX in what we consider an ideal flying outfit: comfy tee, tweed jacket to ward off cabin chills, cuffed boyfriend jeans, and a fedora to cover a mussed ‘do. What is your preferred airplane style? Do you favor ultra-glam getups à la Victoria Beckham and Beyoncé, or is a simple tracksuit more your thing?
The latest French uproar is over Carla and Sarko living la vida loca in Mexico while their people get poorer by the minute (the euro’s not what it used to be, sad to say). But what about Carla’s total fashion week diss? Where was she at Dior, Chanel, Givenchy? We’re not even French and we feel slighted. [The Daily Mail]
Beth Ditto: Prude. [NYT]
Step aside, Zaha Hadid. Chanel’s world-traveling Mobile Art Pavilion (which had to land permanently mid-trip) has met its match in Prada‘s Rem Koolhaas-designed Transformer, a mutable steel tetrahedron galleryspace. To see it do its thing, you’ll have to jet over to Seoul, where it’s housed in the grounds of an imperial palace. [WWD]
In a “conducted” conversation with Victoria Beckham in the latest issue of Bergdorf Goodman magazine (speaking of which, time to renew that subscription!), Marc Jacobs bemoans his likeness to a Ken doll after a rash of airbrushing. He’s referring to a nude photo, and he’s not talking about musculature. He means down there.
