KANYE WEST has given us a preview of his shoe line for Louis Vuitton.

SCOTT SCHUMAN AKA THE SARTORIALIST is coming out with a book. It will be published by Penguin and be around 500 pages of images with a little writing.” “a small book tour in cities like London, Paris, Dublin, a few cities in Australia, and a few cities in the US. says Scott. Patience though, it's not due to be out till September. Source

SCOTT SCHUMAN FOR DKNY:

ASHLEY PAIGE is doing Target. Her collection will include 11 pieces, and they will be available in time for the summer. Good luck to her. I actually watched her reality show, it's good to see she's starting to make better business decisions, maybe now she'll have enough money to pay her rent.

KIRA PLASTININA, here today and gone tomorrow! The 16 fashion designer from Russia spend daddy's 80 million opening up 12 stores in America and in less than a year she's closing them all. Everything on her US website is now 50-70% off. Kira reportedly wanted to compete with stores like H & M and Forever 21, but personally I don't like her clothes and they are very overpriced. You can get much better stuff, for your money elsewhere. On the upside she currently has 70 stores in Russia, and plans to focus her energy on them she also has 10 outlets in Ukraine and five in Kazakhstan. Well, come back later kira, when the 'credit crunch' is over! Source

Remember the big celebrity bash she threw at the opening? (here she is with Audrina Partridge.)

GEMMA WARD is being targeted by the Australian media for having gained weight during her year off from modelling since being pictured looking fuller at the beach in Byron Bay. She's said to be working out and getting back into model shape for her big 'come back' Source

OLIVER THEYSKENS is not leaving Nina Ricci yet! “I am totally committed to Nina Ricci. None of us really know from where such rumors come up, but we are feeling very confident that things are going in the right place.” Source

GOODBYE WOOLWORTHS the British retail giant is another victim of 'The credit crunch' and has closed all it's stores. I think we use to have Woolworths here in Canada back in the mid 90s, I remember shopping there with my mother and loving it, I always wanted to go back.

I'm off to NY next month, and I'm excited because this happens to fall during fashion week. Maybe someone can get me in? *wink* There's what I call a beg form on the main site to ask for tickets, I might try filling it out and see what happens.

For some odd reason I thought Topshop had opened in NY last October, but it turns out it's not until Spring so I'm totally going to miss out. Although I'm a bit bummed, I'm going to be in the UK in April so I'll wait till then. I wonder how well Topshop will do? Their prices don't translate well when you do the conversion from pounds to US dollars, everything will be double if not more so be prepared to pay 100 US for a skirt. (Judging by the sample prices I've seen in magazines). I still wish they would ship to Canada.

KATIE HOLMES FOR MIU MIU
Nice, but not as stunning as Vanessa Paradis and Kristen Dunst. The ads do seem to suit the mood of their Spring/Summer line.


LINDSAY LOHAN:
INTERVIEW MAGAZINE

They airbrushed the coke right out of her, amazing. Love the cover.

(In Balmain)

The ads and the clothes are not that impressive.



OLYMPIC GOLD MEDALIST
NASTIA LIUKIN FOR MAX AZARIA

Stunning.


BLAKE LIVELY: VOGUE
(In Marc Jacobs)

Shocking! Disturbing! I've lost so much respect for Vogue and what it stood for. Although I think Blake is great, she should not be on the cover of Vogue! I don't think she deserves this honour and she hasn't even been dressing that well this year and her resume isn't that long. Put models back on the cover, that's where they belong or someone at least deserving. The cover shot is nice though, I'll give it that much.


CHANEL IMAN
AND JOURDAN DUNN: VOGUE

The dream team!


VICTORIA BECKHAM FOR
GIORGIO ARMANI

First David now her! The ads are fab, sexy vicky!


SCARLETT JOHANSSON:
HARPER'S BAZAAR
Now I understand why a rep or a lawyer or somebody from Harper's Bazaar was going around getting blog to take down the above picture of Scarlett. Well I guess it turns out it wasn't the true cover! (see below)

SOFIA COPPOLA FOR
LOUIS VUITTON
"I wanted a bag that I could use every day that was coming from the heritage of Louis Vuitton’s great leather goods, not connected to the fashion side of the brand,” Coppola said, “We went through a lot of prototypes but it was fun. It was always exciting to get a new one and I would try them out and add things. " I think her designs look really nice.

NAOMI CAMPBELL AND LINDA
EVANGELISTA FOR DSQUARED2

I thought last year would be an exception for the old supermodels of the 90s trend, but this is clearly going to continue into 2009. Yay! They are more interesting anyway.


PENELOPE AND MONICA CRUZ
FOR MANGO S/S 09

So will you be visiting me in NYC or what?

victoria.. said...

OMY! Kira Plastinina is already going out? Wow, so much for her fifteen minutes of fame. I never really liked it so much.

jayne said...

you know as stunning as the blake shoot is, you're right- she's too young and not even that chic, she shouldn't be on the cover

kate's longchamp ads are always stunning

cannot wait for the sarts book!

Dooder City said...

I am not much of a Scar Jo kinda gal. I wonder what Sofia Coppola's closet is like. It must be an amazing place!

tupersonalshopperviajero said...

kss
;-)

Daphné said...

I am bit disappointed by the Miu Miu ad with Katie Holmes... you're right it's not as stunning as the one with Vanessa Paradis or Kirsten Dunst but maybe the other ads will be better!

Z Fashion said...

I really love ur blog! :)

Carlita said...

Although I think the Vogue cover with Blake on it looks very pretty and all, I completely agree with you.

Fashion Tidbits said...

well, actually i think Blake looks rather sophisticated in that Vogue shoot

Charlotte said...

I do not like the Miu Miu picture with Katie either, we will have to wait to see the rest! LiLo looks amazing in that cover!

Girl next blog said...

Gemma Ward is utterly cute!

And Linsay Lohan is such a godess. She always looks amazing and that Balmain dress fits her perfectly.

xx

Make Do Style said...

Well the Sofia Copella bags are rather nice indeed, and yes the wrong person on Vogue cover is a current blight it seems!

Big City Bumpkin said...

love the round up! and can't believe lindsey lohan's cover, I almost didn't recognise her

Eyeliah @ stylesymmetry.com said...

I def agree about Blake, but the pictures turned out stunning!
