A New Coco Chanel Biography Heats Up, James Franco Does Invisible Art, The New Yorker Helps Out Fashion-Phobes, And More…

Biographer Lisa Chaney called her new Chanel exposé Coco Chanel: An Intimate Life. “Intimate” is putting it mildly. WWD reports that Chaney “claims to have concrete evidence that the designer used drugs, embraced bisexuality, and had an affair with Salvador Dalí while he was married.” [WWD]

Over the weekend, the royal family convened for another wedding. The Queen, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry, and more turned out for Zara Phillips and Mike Tindall’s wedding at Canongate Kirk church in Edinburgh. The bride wore an ivory silk satin gown by Stewart Parvin. [Vogue.U.K.]

James Franco has delved into his latest project and it’s called the Museum of Non-Visible Art. Wait, what? Yes, you won’t actually be able to see the artwork—it’s all about the imagination. But never mind that. The important part is, it’s still for sale. [Hint]

Speaking of art with imagination, Alexander McQueen’s revered designs on display at the Met are breaking museum records. As of Friday morning, at least 553,000 people had been through to see the exhibit and when it closes this weekend, it is expected to rank among the museum’s 20 most popular exhibits since they started tracking the number of visitors over 50 years ago.

At last, The New Yorker has provided a cure for the fashion-phobic male. For men who suffer from dizziness, feel uncomfortable with European sizing, and hate having to lug “garish shopping bags” home, Patricia Marx offers some advice on expanding your sartorial horizons. [The New Yorker]

Stella Comes To The Strip, Another Royal Engagement, Moss’ Model U, And More…

Stella McCartney is set to open her first store in Las Vegas, a 2,900-square-foot space at the Crystals at CityCenter (in rendering, above). She designed the shop with APA, the firm that worked on her boutiques in Milan and Paris, and created an exclusive “Welcome to Stella McCartney Las Vegas” T-shirt for the opening. [WWD]

Something in the (royal) water? Just a few weeks after Prince William announced his engagement to Kate Middleton, his cousin, Zara Phillips, has announced her own, to longtime beau Mike Tindall. [Vogue U.K.]

Kate Moss knows a thing or two about modeling—she’s been on top of the game for the better part of 20 years. So it makes perfect sense that she’s mulling opening a modeling school, as she recently told Company magazine. Here’s hoping she turns out to be as quippy a professor of the art as Tyra. [Telegraph]

And speaking of branching out, legendary party photog Patrick McMullan is, too. The lensman tweeted this morning about his forthcoming online magazine, PMC Mag. [@PatrickMcMullan]
