Loved this dress on Kerry as soon as I saw it on her (unlike the Ports 1961 dress that she belted) and this dress she could have belted. The fall color (burnt orange? copper? terracotta?) the dramatic draping, the length, the way it looks against her skin is all perfection. Love it.

Gap's global caravan touched down in London to showcase its Spring collection, and creative director Patrick Robinson was all about the sophisticated and the sexy. When he was growing up, he wasn't alone in thinking of the chain as casual weekendwear. "It was just one part of people's lives," the designer said. Robinson sees this latest collection as putting in place the final components of his four-year revisioning of Gap, which is seeking to re-establish its hold on consumers' hearts and purse strings. He's bumped up the blouses, introduced a soft tailoring element, and brought a new body-consciousness to knitwear.
What Robinson has brought to the brand is tightly edited precision. "No longer a table with one sweater in 30 colors," he said. Yep, instead of multiples, what stood out were specific pieces, like the white silk crepe cocktail dress with the keyhole back (Gap? Get used to it!) or the long white cotton skirt with big patch pockets (LOVE IT), paired with a cap-sleeved top for an elegant evening option (Gap? Get used to it two times!), or the slouchy hooded jacket, with the volume of a radically cropped djellaba. There was something of the classic Perry Ellis spirit in such easy but chic outfits (Robinson did, after all, design for Ellis at one point). The designer also subtly tipped his cap to Gap's heritage by lining a soft lapel-less jacket with gray sweatshirting.

Lopez told UsMagazine.com, "Now there are two Gucci spokesbabies for a beautiful cause!" She added, "Emme picks out her own outfits and likes to sleep in her princess dress. It's hard to get Max dressed. He prefers to run around the house with no clothes on."
I think it's ludicrous. But that's just my opinion...

Just watched this interview of 11 year old fashion designer Cecilia Cassini on the Nate Berkus show and I have to tell you, it was hard for me to watch. There's no reason for this child to work so hard at acting older than her years. But you can't really blame her, I mean I'm sure she's not raising herself. Her talent at such a young age should speak for itself without all the extra. Just sayin'.[photo source]

Kerry Washington attended the Conde Nast Traveler Readers' Choice Awards at The IAC Building on October 12, 2010 in New York City. Kerry's hair and makeup are both gorgeous, her dress is from Ports 1961 Spring 2011 collection (see it below) and she belted it. The belt isn't terrible with the dress, but I wouldn't have. What's your style verdict?

Heidi Klum may have retired her Victoria's Secret angel wings, but she's already landed her next big contract. Klum, who as we first reported last month quit VS after 13 years, is the new face of Ann Taylor, replacing Naomi Watts. A source tells us Klum will be the face of the retailer's 2010 holiday campaign and the ads, shot by famed British photographer Rankin, "show the German supermodel layered in festive bling."

Mary J. Blige recreated Diana Ross' iconic magazine cover (from 1970) for Ebony Magazine's 65th Anniversary. And all I have to say about this is WOW. Fabulous job Ebony Art Department. Fabulous job.
It’s heartening to see shoe designers addressing the not-so-sexy issue of comfort. In Paris, I went to see shoe label Aperlaï (top shoe), whose designer, the very stylish Alessandra Lanvin, doesn’t want you to have to stow a pair of Repetto BB’s in your bag in case you can’t find a taxi. “In Paris, we walk everywhere,” said Lanvin. “You should be able to do that in your heels.” Her techniques include padding the sole where the ball of the foot rests and creating a heel that’s essentially an elongated pyramid with the top lopped off. It reads spindly but is secretly sturdy. And seeing as Lanvin produces in the same Italian factory as Alaïa and Prada, these ideas are all but guaranteed to have excellent execution.
Then there’s Korean-born designer Raphael Young, whose in-your-face fierce aesthetic (bottom shoe) would lead you to believe that the idea of a comfortable heel would be completely anathema. But Young revealed that he’ll soon unveil a patented technology that makes 110-mm shoes feel like your Nikes (this dude deserves a serious high-five). Here’s to the end of the High-Heel Hobble.

Blog Kitsune Noir reports that the design community wasn't too impressed and that the new logo now has its own (perhaps unofficial) Twitter account addressing complaints.
