Models sported Chanel's new lip colour, Genial, at the fashion house's couture show in Paris yesterday.

The lip colour is part of the label's next colour collection which will come out in the summer, as part of the newest addition to the Rouge Allure lip-colour line.

The raspberry sorbet colour make lips look too delicious to resist! Perfect for the summer, or to brighten up a dreary winter's day.

Très genial, indeed.

Galliano puts men in corsets for his menswear show

Never one to shy away from anything out of the ordinary, John Galliano made sure to make an impact for his Fall 2010 menswear collection.

The show started off with grungier looks. The men were in a sea of black and grey layers of tshirts, hooded overcoats and trapper hats.

The collection took a more dapper turn, with looks that Sherlock Holmes and Hercule Poirot would love. Think single-breasted jackets, waistcoats, leather gloves and capes.

But to make things more interesting, Galliano put his men in corsets. Taking a hint from the ever popular "no-pants" look, the designer even replaced a pair of trousers with corset shorts.

The show closed on an oriental warrior theme. Models with painted-on eight packs sported Galliano's underwear collection for the fall.

Sarah Jessica Parker appointed fashion executive at Halston

Just like her other fashionable peers, Sarah Jessica Parker has decided to jump on the celebrity-turned-designer bandwagon.

The Sex and the City star is joining Halston as president and chief creative officer.

Parker will own an equity stake in the firm, and will also have a seat on the Halston board. This arrangement will give her an integral role in shaping the strategic direction of the iconic brand - and according to WWD, "could change the way celebrities look at future fashion deals."

“I think this is a brand new kind of business model and it illustrates how serious I am about this position,” Parker told WWD in an exclusive interview. “I think it’s wonderful to feel invested in something.

“I tend not to just endorse something,” she added. “I like feeling the stakes.”

“Sarah Jessica has always had a love for Halston and we have always looked at her as a great American style icon," said chief executive officer Bonnie Takhar. "When all of this surfaced, we sat down and had a conversation. With her history of having had a successful business with Bitten, and her interest in getting involved in the fashion business, we talked about how we could work together and have a meaningful business relationship.”

Parker hopes to bring "good manners, a point of view that is inspiring, that is hopefully smart, and an incredible passion and excitement and enthusiasm, as well as some experience of what I know about women, that having been pretty much the focus of my role in ‘Sex and the City.’”

What do you think of SJP's new role? Is this just a way to bring more attention to the label, or do you think she will beneficial to the brand?

Jimmy Choo UGGs?

Jimmy Choo seems to be loving collaborations lately.

After creating a collection for H&M, the label is now launching a limited edition, five-piece collection with Ugg Australia.

Crazy, right?

The collection will launch in October, and will based on the construction of Ugg's sheepskin boots “with design details that embody the spirit of the Jimmy Choo brand,” the two companies said in a statement.

Prices will range from $595 to $705, and the collection will be available at select Jimmy Choo and Ugg Australia stores, and the two labels' online stores, as well as certain department and specialty stores that carry Jimmy Choo.

Tamara Mellon, president and founder of Jimmy Choo, said that alongside her own label, “Ugg Australia is the only other footwear I have in my wardrobe.”

Most of the fashion world looks down upon UGGs, but could this collaboration deem the infamous boots "fashionable?"

Rumours are swirling that model Lara Stone may star in Lady Gaga's new music video for "Alejandro."

Stone has received much criticism in the fashion world for her "plus-sized" figure (she's a size four).

Tony Blair joins Louis Vuitton

Tony Blair is dipping his toes into the fashion world.

No, he's not designing, or modeling.

The former Prime Minister is becoming an advisor at the LVMH, the luxury conglomerate owned by his friend Bernard Arnault.

"There is an agreement in principle but nothing has been signed yet," a source close to Blair told the Daily Telegraph. "Mr Blair won't be joining the board but he will be acting in an advisory role, working very closely with Mr Arnault. In particular, his job is likely to involve attracting new clients."

Back in 2006, Sir Philip Green suggested Blair join his Fashion Retail Academy. Blair responded, "You would have to start me right at the bottom. I am not known for my fashion sense. When I wore a particular brand of swimming trunks one year, the sales then collapsed."

Blair is expected to start at LVMH later this year.

Miley covers Harper's Bazaar

Magazines are just loving the teen queens these days!

Miley Cyrus is the February cover girl for Harper's Bazaar magazine.

In the interview, the 17-year-old talks about growing up in the public eye ("Everything is so dramatic in this world"), the Vanity Fair scandal ("Here, my parents are thinking they're seeing a beautiful picture by a major photographer, and the people of America want to see something dirty in that?"), being a role model ("My job is to be a role model, and that's what I want to do, but my job isn't to be a parent"), and, of course, fashion ("I thought it was so cool when girls would ask me, What's your shirt? And I'm like, Hanes, but I have $60,000 worth of jewelry on top of it!").
