Lucy In Disguise, the vintage store Lily Allen opened with her sister, Sarah Owen, last year (currently being featured in Lily Allen: Riches to Rags documentary) is getting a new vintage items addition. The Lucy In Disguise collection will consist of vintage inspired dresses featuring Lily and Sarah's favorite details from vintage pieces mixed together. If some of the looks seem familiar it's probably because you've seen the originals on Lily, like that sailor suit or the many maxi dresses. This is essentially what Rachel Zoe did with her own vintage inspired collection, although she probably kept some looks too close to the originals.
All of the dresses in Lucy In Disguise collection will have names like Capone, ...
Kate Moss graces the cover of Vogue Japan May 2011 issue - the first under it's new name. The magazine was known as Vogue Nippon beforehand.
Vogue Japan May 2011 cover was photographed by the duo Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott and features Kate Moss wearing a Chanel dress and Delfina Delettrez jewelry.
How do you feel about the masthead change?
Crystal Renn was photographed by David Roemer for Vogue Mexico April 2011 cover and the accompanying editorial, making it Renn's Vogue cover debut.
The editorial showcases a hot trend this summer - neons. Although Vogue Mexico took it more into the Eighties realm and the styling of the close-ups looks rather tacky, Renn herself looks gorgeous.
Next year in Vogue US?
Carine Roitfeld's first project since leaving French Vogue has been revealed and it's not her and Tom Ford taking over Dior. So the overreaching rumors can stop.
Roitfeld will style and even serve as somewhat of an inspiration for Barneys New York Fall 2011 advertising campaign and catalogue. She will even style the store's Madison Avenue windows. All these will be unveiled in September.
Barneys New York tapped Mario Sorrenti to photograph the campaign and catalogue in two locations - New York and Paris. And it is Roitfeld's laid back and cool Parisian attitude which will set the mood. Barneys creative director Dennis Freedman says of Roitfeld, "She is the ideal muse as well as editor. She has a unique and extraordinary ...
It's good that once in a while we get a reminder that despite all the glitz and glamour, Dubai it is still not a free country. Not by a long shot. You will get arrested and your passport will be taken away if you give a peck to your boyfriend or husband in public and even if you are Gisele Bündchen wearing rather innocent H&M Spring 2011 clothes in a campaign image - your upper arms and décolletage will be covered by a painted-on tee.
It may have been all about Emmanuelle Alt's first solo Vogue Paris issue for the past couple of weeks, but lest be forgotten, Carine Roitfeld's highly anticipated book comes out this fall and can already be pre-ordered on Amazon.
Carine Roitfeld: Irreverent was edited by Purple's Olivier Zahm and written by Roitfeld herself with contributions by Cathy Horyn, Amy Larocca and Anna Wintour. An image-heavy book, it will mostly contain photoshoots Roitfeld did with Mario Testino throughout her career (including The Face and French Glamour). A photoshoot certainly to be included? "The Butcher" editorial that appeared in The Face magazine in 1997, photographed by Testino featuring Eva Herzigova.
Carine Roitfeld: Irreverent
Yesterday evening the Council of Fashion Designers of America - CFDA - announced their list of nominees in the running for the 2011 CFDA Awards. The ceremony which will be held at Lincoln Center on June 6 will also honor Celine's Phoebe Philo with the International Award, Marc Jacobs with Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award and Telegraph's Hilary Alexander with the Eugenia Sheppard Award.

Last year, at the 2010 CFDA awards Marc Jacobs took home the big prize as Womenswear Designer of the Year, Alexis Bittar won the Accessory Designer of the Year category, Alexander Wang won Swarovski's Emerging Accessories Designer of the ...
VogueParisLive twitted it's forthcoming Vogue Paris April 2011 cover - Emmanuelle Alt's first official issue. Photographed by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, a rather virginal looking Gisele Bündchen wears a white broderie Anglaise Dolce & Gabbana dress.
I was hoping Emmanuelle Alt would continue Bündchen's recently found edginess from Balenciaga Spring 2011 campaign, unfortunately that was not the case. Emmanuelle Alt's first ever Vogue Paris cover will forever be remembered as vanilla.
What do you think about the cover?
Nicholas Kirkwood Fall 2011 shoes collection was unveiled by the designer a few days ago in Paris. Standing out were the Moroccan slipper inspired sandals. Rising high on Kirkwood's classic platform, the upper and heel were made of fabric embroidered with gold thread, trimmed with gold-colored leather. Priced near a hefty $7,000 mark, one might be temped to think they were actually made gold.
