Dolce&Gabbana designing Chelsea's football uniforms

Looks like soccer is getting more and more fashionable!

Dolce&Gabbana has created a range of suits exclusively for the Chelsea Football Club, after inking a three-year deal with the team.

"We are really happy about this partnership and to be able to link our name to such a prestigious club like Chelsea," said Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana. "We are big football fans: for us it means healthy competition, intense passion and great discipline. Football players are style icons both on and off the pitch and, on top of this, there is our love of England and of London, which have always been a source of inspiration for our work."

The designer duo used the club's signature blue, and created two off-field outfits for the players - a three piece suit with an embroidered logo crest, and a pair of jeans worn with a shirt and black trainers. Both looks will be finished off with a black wool fitted coat.

But it's not only the players who will be dressed. Coach Carlo Ancelotti and the team's staff will also be gifted with D&G apparel, including two-button jackets, blue shirts, wool jumpers, and high-heeled shoes for the women. D&G will also give the club directors' lounge and other areas of the Chelsea club's stadium a makeover.

Dolce & Gabbana has previously designed the uniforms for A.C. Milan and for the 2006 World Cup Italian football team.

Perhaps Giorgio Armani will consider designing for Real Madrid...considering he's already taken Cristiano Ronaldo under his wing.

Justin Timberlake designing for Target

Justin Timberlake has done a great job with his William Rast collection, although the price points are a bit much for me.

But, alas! Timberlake is teaming up with Target on a collection that will hit stores December 19th!

“The collection for Target was inspired by the essence of the William Rast brand — the iconography of biker culture and American denim heritage,” said William Rast chief executive officer Colin Dyne.

The prices for the collection have not yet been revealed, but they should be fairly affordable, like Target's other Go International lines.

 Looks like I'll have to make my way to the States for this one!

Will you be buying Justin Timberlake's Target collection?

Lady Gaga may land a tea campaign

We all know that Lady Gaga loves carrying around her teacup, as if it were a pet, so it was only a matter of time before tea companies would begin approaching her to become the face of their brand.

Lady Gaga has chosen Twinings tea who is said to have offered her a multi-million dollar deal.

"Her management have received a load of offers from major tea companies but Twinings are the front-runners. They want to launch a new tea with her face on it and discussions are taking place at the top level," a source told British newspaper The Sun.

Twinings also may create a new flavour in Gaga's honour.

"Names like The Taste Of Gaga are being batted about. The idea is to have tasting sessions in which she would participate," said the source. "The tasters are coming up with a tea with an oriental flavour. They want to market tea to a new, younger generation - particularly in America, and Gaga is making drinking tea cool again."

Leave it to Gaga to be a part of a creative celebrity collaboration.

Would you drink Gaga tea?

UGG Australia to open up shop on Madison Ave.

After all these years, UGG Australia reigns as one of the most popular picks for boots.

No matter how much the fashion world bashes the sheepskin boots, you can still expect to see them on women and men every year...and not just in the winter.

Now, the brand is opening up a flagship store in New York.  The company has acquired 2,600 square feet at 600 Madison Avenue, on 58th Street.

The store will open in November.

Guess they will be selling Jimmy Choo's design for their brand!

What do you think of UGG boots? Do you still wear them, or do you run away from them as far as possible?

Gaga gets in touch with her masculine side

The blogosphere exploded when super stylist, Nicola Formichetti, posted photos of a model named Jo Calderone.

However, die-hard Gaga fans (who know that Formichetti is Gaga's stylist) claim that the model, is in fact, their beloved Momma Monster.

To further add the to speculation, Perez Hilton posted the photos on Twitter, and said, "My husband Jo Calederone! We are in love!" He also tweeted, "My man is so hot! Love him!"

The photos were shot by Nick Knight, and will appear in the September 2010 issue of Vogue Hommes Japan.

No word from Gaga yet on whether it really is her in the photos, but knowing her, it's more likely than not.

Do you think the model in the photos look like Gaga?

Jean Paul Gaultier teams up with La Perla

Remember that famous Jean Paul Gaultier cone bra that Madonna wore in the 90s?

Well now, lingerie and Madonna fanatics can own their very own version.

Gaultier is now designing a high-end lingerie range with La Perla called La Perla, Designer Collection.

“Lingerie is part of my DNA and of my heritage," said Gaultier. "In my latest prêt-à-porter collection I revisited the conical bras and corsets worn as outerwear. This collaboration was a natural and logical step, especially since La Perla is the pearl of the lingerie, with the best savoir faire.”

This will be the first official lingerie line for the couturier, and will hit stores in November. The collection is nearly entirely handmade, and includes a waist-cincher corset, extra-high briefs, and a bodysuit and bras that sport that famous cone style.

Alain Prost, chief executive officer of La Perla, described the collaboration as a renewable two-year partnership. A capsule collection of beachwear will be added in March.

Retail prices start at 500 euros, for a bra and panties and up to 1,000 euros for the more elaborate designs.

The line will be available in about 100 stores worldwide, including Jean Paul Gaultier and La Perla stores, as well as department stores such as Neiman Marcus, and Galeries Lafayette.
