MY TOP PICKS FROM THE GOLDEN GLOBES 2011

CATHERINE ZETA-JONES

The radiantly ageless and beautiful Catherine Zeta-Jones, in green for the Globes, wears a surprisingly light and frothy 
Monique Lhuillier gown.

MANDY MOORE

Mandy Moore’s Monique Lhuillier mermaid chiffon dress has just the right amount of drama for the petite singer-actress.

LEA MICHELE

The pastel peach color of this ruffled Oscar de la Rental gown takes Lea Michele’s look to almost-Barbie, 
but still delightfully modern.

MILA KUNIS

The unique texture and flattering shape of Mila Kunis’ Vera Wang look stands out from the other emerald dresses 
we saw on the red carpet.

CLAIRE DANES

Claire Danes masters the elegance of minimalism with a punchy pink halter gown by Calvin Klein Collection.

RACHEL ZOE SNEAK PEAK AT HER FIRST COLLECTION IN A SHOOT SHE STYLED FOR WWD.

A-MAZ-ING!!

If you thought Rachel Zoe had toned it down what with her pregnancy and skipping out on Milan and Paris spring fashion weeks, think again.

Not one to be slowed down by pregnancy, the superstar stylist has been keeping plenty busy working on her first line, the Rachel Zoe Collection, and having it all filmed for the fourth season of her popular Bravo reality show.

Zoe, seven months pregnant, and her sizable entourage (Bravo crew included) stopped by WWD to style a shoot for the paper with a few looks from her forthcoming collection. The collection is pure Zoe–tailored (there’s plenty of suiting, including, according to WWD, a le smoking-esque tuxudo jumpsuit), dramatic, with a ’70s flare. Even though, Zoe says, ““I’d imagine everybody is expecting something from me that’s kind of a Seventies, uberboho-glam kind of thing, and, you know, very accessorized. And it’s not.”

Unlike Zoe’s small affordable collection for QVC, the Rachel Zoe Collection will be a contemporary line which includes outerwear (with capes galore, obviously), shoes (four inch high stilettos with massive platforms, obviously) and handbags (Zoe literally screamed when she saw the first sample). Prices will range from $250 for a day dress up to $700 for a full tuxedo look. Zoe’s manufacturing firm Li & Fung say they haven’t secured any retailers yet, but Zoe says she envisions the collection on the racks next to Alexander Wang and DVF and Marc by Marc Jacobs.

Of course, the Zoe tornado couldn’t tear through WWD without leaving some gossip detritus behind. Zoe apparently let slip numerous times that she’s having a boy (I hope he likes vintage!), and that while she’s skipping the fall shows this coming February since docs have ordered her to “slow down,” she will still be there by Anne Hathaway’s side at the Oscars, eight months pregnant and in four inch heels to oversee Hathaway’s outfit changes. And apparently we’re to be on the lookout for a “leggy brunette” named Mandana who has replaced Brad.

Check out the Zoe-styled shoot of her own collection for WWD, photos by Stephen Sullivan.

KANYE WEST/KIRKWOOD/STELLA McCARTNEY & MORE DESIGNER COLLABORATIONS OF 2011

SUPER EXCITED ABOUT ALL THESE COLLABORATIONS FOR 2011. I’LL BE SURE TO LET MY FOLLOWERS KNOW WHEN EXACTLY THEY’LL BE RELEASED. BE ON THE LOOK OUT 🙂

Kanye West x Everyone
West has showed a penchant for eclectic collaborations with his single, “All of the Lights,” which
features everyone from Kid Cudi to–wait for it–Elton John! For 2011 the self-proclaimed fashion lover needs to expand his capacity for fashion collabs beyond the legendary Air Yeezy sneakers to shoes with Toms, khaki’s with J.Crew, furs with Fendi and beyond!

 

Nicholas Kirkwood x Pleaser Shoes
What with his new store in London’s posh Mayfair neighborhood and all, it’s clear that Kirkwood is a class act. But life has taught us that every now and then, there’s nothing wrong with stepping into your smuttier side. Hence: Kirkwood x Pleaser Shoes. Pleaser, loved by the best “exotic” dancers you’ll ever meet, is accomplished at creating patent and Lucite platform numbers. Croc-trimmed Lucite heels anyone?

Mary Katrantzou x Marimekko
‘Nuf said.

But we’ll elaborate: The Central Saint Martins grad who is already legendary for her prints and the historic Finnish label, already legendary for it’s prints could be …

Stella McCartney x Reece Hudson
Lux leather and rich colors are the hallmark of what makes up-and-coming accessories line Reece Hudson so dope. Sexy, sophisticated design and a strict aversion to leather are what make Stella McCartney dope. Like a carnivore married to a vegan, a collaboration between these two could lead to an interesting–if not permanent–union.

Jeremy Scott x Public School
Jeremy Scott epitomizes a quirky urban style sensibility to begin with. For 2011 why not go all the way with a collaboration with one of the chicest urban brands in town, Public School? Denims that fit just-so with a leather crotch could be a site to behold.

Norma Kamali x Nike
“Ni-Li” if you will. Afterall, all those soft, draped jersey body suits are just as good for a night on the town as they are for a day at yoga. A lining here, a mesh insert there and you are set to be the most stylish student in your work out class. We’re just saying: Just do it!

Lacoste x LeSportsac
There’s no major impetus for this besides the sheer joy of alliteration that comes with saying
Lacoste and LeSportsac. Ditto the opportunity to call this collaboration, La’Sportsac. But our witty way with words aside, this could make for one of the lightest–and brightest–gym bags known to man.

Nina Ricci x Theory
Is this too much to ask of the universe? Perhaps. But that won’t keep us from dreaming. Taking
Olivier Theyskens’ new Theory line and designing an evening wear collaboration between Nina Ricci and Theyskens new eponymous line at Theory could be an instant best seller. We imagine Etta James softly cooing her signature song at the private editor preview. After all, art and
commerce have united. At last.
