  • Tamara Mellon of Jimmy Choo is no longer the designer at Halston. She has been replaced by Marios Schwab who says he is excited to head Halston and will still be running his namesake line.
  • Models like Anja Rubik, Sessilee Lopez, and Emina Cunmulaj were in Vienna to take part in the 2009 Life Ball AIDS Charity Spectacular. The venue was surrounded by 2.5 million liters of water for the marine themed party.... i'm sorry, but that sounds really wasteful. oh well.
  • Go on youtube and search for Anna Wintour on 60 minutes! I didn't get to watch the original viewing but I will watch it now--I've heard it is an eye-opening segment.
  • Lara Stone, the sex bomb of fashion, is searching for a boyfriend--that was one of the tidbits of information that came out of the sensational Chanel Paris-Venice Cruise 2010 collection that was shown recently.

i hope you all enjoyed the entry. ta ta.

About Me

My photo
I am an immigrant. I was born in the caribbean and wish i was there rather than having to deal with the sporadic weather of chicago. I love fashion. My family is crazy, and blogging is a hobby that keeps me sane. I also strongly believe that it doesn't take money to look good, it just takes innate style.
