LOVELY LADIES

Linda Evangelista and Claire Danes give Italian designer Stefano Pilati something to smile about Tuesday night at the Serpentine Gallery annual summer party in London. The fete, thrown by Yves Saint Laurent's top dog, was also attended by Kristin Scott Thomas, Elle Macpherson and Mischa Barton.

Lovely ladies? Claire Danes looks awful! She looks older than Linda Evangelista! :blink:

'Breakfast at Tiffany's' Dress to Be SoldAPThe dress that transformed actress Audrey Hepburn into one of cinema's most cherished characters is up for sale, London auction house Christie's said Wednesday. The iconic black gown Hepburn wore for her role as Holly Golightly in the 1961 film "Breakfast at Tiffany's" will go under the hammer Dec. 5, the auction house said. The Hubert de Givenchy-designed dress is expected to fetch 70,000 pounds (US$130,000, €102,500). Hepburn's Golightly is an eccentric New York socialite with a penchant for cigarettes and extravagant baubles. Opening scenes of the movie adapted from Truman Capote's novel of the same name show Golightly in the dress, emerging from a taxi on 5th Avenue with her brown-bag breakfast to ogle diamonds and luxury goods in the storefront windows of Tiffany & Co. Images of the Oscar-winning actress dressed as Golightly sporting gloves, an elaborate pearl choker and a trademark cigarette holder endure more than 40 years after the film's release. Hepburn, born in Brussels, Belgium, won an Academy Award in 1953 for her performance in "Roman Holiday," in which she starred with Gregory Peck. She went on to star in more than 20 films before becoming a goodwill ambassador for UNICEF. She died in 1993. Her movies remain popular favorites, and the "Breakfast at Tiffany's" dress itself continues to inspire. Givenchy head designer Riccardo Tisci recreated the famous gown's silhouette for the label's 2006 autumn/winter line including its cut-out crescent-shaped back. Proceeds from the auction will benefit City of Joy Aid, a charity that provides relief to impoverished children in India. The gown's current owners the founders of City of Joy Aid received it as a gift from de Givenchy. The Parisian couturier was famous for dressing the most glamorous women of the 1950s and 1960s, including Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and Princess Grace of Monaco. Givenchy designed Hepburn's wardrobe for many of her films, including "Sabrina" and "Funny Face," a film about the French fashion world. He thought of Hepburn as his muse, and her willowy frame, long neck and intelligent face became hallmarks of 1960s beauty.

Quick & DirtyWET, SHINY &MOUTHING OFF How many times can Sandra Bernhard say "MAC Plushglass" in a single speech? About a gazillion, judging by her constant repetition of the phrase during a lunch hawking the Estée Lauder lip gloss at Michael's yesterday. "When I go to the airport tomorrow and they try to take my MAC Plushglass away from me, it's going to be World War III!" she vowed, more than living up to the lunch's theme, "Give 'Em Lip!" Meanwhile, another speaker, stylist Robert Verdi, neatly dissed the Hamptons: "I see these people on cement. I don't need to see them on sand."

Elle's shock over 'Body' double Klum Is Heidi Klum a "Body" snatcher?Fellow supermodel Elle Macpherson, who's been known as "The Body" ever since Time magazine dubbed her that in a 1986 cover story, has every reason to think so.This week, Klum has been claiming the title for herself in a saturation Victoria's Secret ad campaign for The Body bra. "They call me The Body — and now I have a bra named after me," the German hottie claims in TV commercials.But not so fast, Fräulein Klum!"We saw that and were like, Oh my god!" Elle Macpherson Intimates spokeswoman Melissa Edwards told Lowdown yesterday. "We were initially flabbergasted."Now it's a battle of the supermodel moguls — Macpherson, the 42-year-old, 6-foot Aussie mother of two, against Klum, the 33-year-old, 5-foot-9 mother of two (with one on the way).Elle's flack, Edwards, invoked the 1986 Time cover and added: "We have numerous press clippings in the office referring to her as 'The Body.' Everything from Harper's Bazaar to Vogue to the recent Sports Illustrated calls her that. In terms of public record, that name belongs to Elle."Macpherson markets her own skin-care line, "Elle Macpherson The Body," along with a lingerie brand and a fitness video titled "The Body Workout." Klum — who was once called "The Body Two," in deference to Elle — is a relative Heidi-come-lately, and didn't hit the United States until the late 1990s. Both Klum and Macpherson have been favorites of the Sports Illustrated annual swimsuit issue, and both appeared in the mag's latest.But what's up with "The Body" doubling? A spokeswoman for Klum and Victoria's Secret didn't respond by deadline to detailed messages.

Marc Jacobs’s Gay AdsOut fashion designer Marc Jacobs is taking homoeroticism from sexual to loving in his new ad campaign. Men.Style.com reports that the ads showcase makeup artist Dick Page and his husband, James Gibbs, in both their Manhattan apartment and their Long Island house. “You always see something more sexual and aggressive, a stereotype of gayness,” photographer Juergen Teller says. “For me, this ad is about two human beings loving each other.” To check out one of the adverts, click here.

Vera Wang Goes Slumming
Posted Aug 24th 2006 3:30PM by TMZ Staff


Vera Wang became famous for designing exquisite wedding dresses for everyone from Jennifer Lopez to Mariah Carey to Jessica Simpson. But soon even your Aunt Myrtle in Akron will be able to sport a Wang design of her very own.

Vera, who was crowned women's wear designer of the year in 2005, has teamed up with "value-oriented specialty department store" Kohl's to start a new brand called Very Vera Vera Wang.

The line won't include couture gowns (now what will Auntie Myrtle wear to the VFW?), but it will feature sportswear, intimate apparel, accessories, footwear, and linens and towels.

And while Wang's high-end fashions can cost up to $12,000, the Very Vera line will feature a more pedestrian-friendly price tag aimed at appealing to the ever popular middle-income woman.

Times must be tough in the fashion biz though, because Wang is just the latest high-end designer to peddle their more modest wares to the masses.

Target alone currently features (or has featured) the designs of world renowned designers Isaac Mizrahi, Mossimo, Todd Oldham, Cynthia Rowley, Steven Sprouse and Luella Bartley. Attention shoppers: walkoff in Aisle 3!

Very Vera Vera Wang will be available at Kohl's stores and online starting Fall 2007.

Gwen's Got a Brand New Bag
Posted Sep 2nd 2006 8:00AM by TMZ Staff
Filed under: Fall Fashions

Gwen Stefani teamed up with Le SportSac creator Tim Schifter to create a new wave of purses titled "The L.A.M.B. Love Collection." The trend-setting star unveiled her 33 purses to a small group of retailers and editors in New York last Thursday .

The purses are inspired by the trunks her band uses while on tour, and Gwen's love of rasta colors and old English lettering weave their way through the entire collection, as seen on Fashion Week Daily. Naturally, the bags are super-cool, but unfortunately pretty pricey as well at $300-$700 a pop.

LABELS FOR LESS
Page Six

September 2, 2006 -- THE fashion copycats work with the speed of lightning in this town. Just three days after Evangeline Lilly, Eva Longoria, Felicity Huffman and Julia Louis-Dreyfus wore stunning gowns by Versace, Jason Wu, Monique Lhullier and Narciso Rodriguez at the Emmy Awards, New York designer Faviana has created knockoffs of each. "We rock around the clock to render designer bling on a budget," crowed Faviana principal Omid Moradi. "They'll be in stores next spring for under $300."

I agree. I was wondering, since she has looked so crappy lately, if she fired her fashion consultant.

I was just glad JLH wasn't wearing some 1950s-style dress again. She wears the same Sandra Dee silhouette every frigging time I am so frigging tired of it. I don't mind that she's showing she's got a bit of the badonkadonk - I'll take it over a frigging poodle skirt...

Read this on Gawker--major drama at Australian fashion shows because a designer dared use a non-anorexic size 8-10 models. Oh, the horror! Gawker also says Australian Vogue took coverage of that designer off its websites.....How horrible!
