Louis Vuitton's Fall 2010 ads showcase three generations of models



Louis Vuitton's Fall 2010 ads feature multigenerational casting...one model in her 20s (Natalia Vodianova), one in her 30s (Karen Elson), and one in her 40s (Christy Turlington). 

Loving the elegant, fifties feel to the photos, which were shot by Steven Meisel.

What do you think of the ads?

Madonna teams up with daughter, Lourdes, to create junior line

This is the first celebrity fashion line that I'm not groaning about!

Madonna is teaming up with her 13-year-old daughter, Lourdes Leon, to create a junior fashion line called, "Material Girl."

The line, which is named after Madonna's 1984 hit song, will be sold exclusively for back-to-school season starting August 3rd.

Material Girl will include apparel, footwear, jewelry and handbags, and will range from $12 to $40.

"I think this line is absolutely an extension of her taste," Madonna said in a statement about her daughter's involvement. "We like to combine … a plaid or a flannel with a lace, or leather with lace or rhinestones. So we mix and match textures and fabrics and elements that are both masculine and feminine."


This isn't Madonna's first venture in fashion. Back in 2007, she teamed up with H&M for the M by Madonna line. However, Lourdes has proven herself to be as fashion savvy as her mother, so it'll be interesting to see what else the line has to offer.

What do you think of the sketches?

Megan Fox, is that you?

Megan Fox has pulled a Heidi.

The nixed "Transformers" beauty was looking rather plastic at the premiere of her new movie, "Jonah Hex."

Megan...you were stunning...and though, yes, you've had some work done since 2007 (refer to slideshow below), they were merely minimal enhancements, not a full-on makeover. Now you look like a hybrid of Octo-Mom and Janice Dickinson...and that is NOT a good thing.

Another example of plastic surgery gone WRONG...and it's a shame because Megan was truly beautiful.
 What do you think of Megan's new look? Would you go under the knife?

Cristiano Ronald's Armani underwear ads



Cristiano Ronaldo shows off his hot bod in the Fall/Winter 2010-2011 ad campaign for Emporio Armani Underwear and Armani Jeans.

The photos were shot in Madrid, and will appear on billboards in major cities around the world. A short film and an online commercial will be released in September to showcase the collection.

These billboards could be a major safety hazzard!!

What do you think of the ads....or do we really need to ask?!

FIRST LOOK: Coco Rocha's wedding gown!

Last week, Canadian model Coco Rocha tied the knot with interior designer James Conrad

Coco wore a custom-made Zac Posen gown at the small ceremony which took place at a castle in France.

BFF, and fellow model Behati Prinsloo gushed, "It was unbelievable. When I saw her, I wanted to cry. I still can’t stop thinking about how beautiful the wedding was.”

Prinsloo also described the look of the dress:

“It was tight over her body all the way to her knees, then it had this extreme mermaid tail at the bottom. The straps were off the shoulder, and the material looked vintage - it’s sort of hard to explain, you have to see it,” she said.

Can't wait to see more pictures!

Congratulations to the happy couple!

Daphne Guinness buys Isabella Blow's fashion collection

Daphne Guinness has even more exquisite clothing to add to her already-extravagant collection.

The heiress has purchased the late Isabella Blow's fashion collection in its entirety through a private sale at Christie’s in London.

Guinness obtained clothing and photography, including 90 Alexander McQueen outfits, several early dresses by John Galliano, and over 50 hats by Philip Treacy.

The collection was originally planned  to go up for auction in September, with each piece being sold separately.

It has been said that Guinness wishes to keep the collection together.

“It’s Issy – it’s her D.N.A, it should not be scattered to the four winds,” Guinness stated.

Hopefully Guinness will be sharing Isabella Blow's collection with the rest of the world, especially since her own wardrobe will be put on display at New York's Fashion Institute of Technology next September.

Chace Crawford arrested

Uh oh. Looks like the cast of Gossip Girl enjoys causing some trouble, even when they're not in the Upper East Side.

Chace Crawford was arrested in his hometown of Plano, Texas, early this morning after cops allegedly found him in possession of marijuana (See police report here).

The 24-year-old was busted while he was in a '03 Nissan outside of Ringo's Pub with a friend.  Police say he had less than two ounces of pot with him.


He bailed out soon after, and was officially charged with a misdemeanor, which carries a 6 month maximum sentence.

Looks like it's another case of life imitating art. After all, Nate Archibald was a huge pothead in the Gossip Girl series.

It's okay Chace, we still love you.

xoxo,
The Chic Spot.

Brad Pitt to portray Philip Treacy?

The Chic Spot recently reported that a film based on the life of Isabella Blow is in the works, and designer John Galliano will star as himself.

Legendary milliner Philip Treacy, however, would prefer an A-list actor to portray him in the film.

His pick? Brad Pitt.

"I am trying desperately to forget that someone will actually have to play me in this film," Treacy told VOGUE.COM. "I would never want to appear in it myself- I am a hat designer not an actor. Acting isn't my forte. If I could pick anyone I'd run with Brad Pitt but it's wishful thinking and perhaps not very likely I know."

Last week, Treacy unveiled a series of new hats and masks at the Museum of London, all of which were inspired by historic examples. He has previously worked with Lady Gaga, who recently applied to intern for the milliner.

Do you think that Brad Pitt would make a good Philip Treacy?

Hervé Léger teams with Avon to create new fragrances

Always wanted that Hervé Léger dress, but just couldn't get yourself to fork out that much cash?

Well now, Hervé Léger fans can get a piece of the brand through our favourite door-to-door marketing brand, Avon.

Hervé, which is owned by the BCBG Max Azria Group, will be launching two new perfumes this fall: Hervé Léger Femme and Hervé Léger Homme. Though the brand is fairly upscale, it has recently been trying to reach to a more accessible audience (see: Miley Cyrus and Max Azria's Wal-Mart collection).

Avon has tried to make itself more fashion-conscious, especially with its mark. collection, who has signed Twilight's Ashley Grenne as former ambassador Lauren Conrad's replacement. The brand also produces fragrances for Christian Lacroix, Emanuel Ungaro and Cynthia Rowley, and will also be launching Fergie's new fragrance, Outspoken.

So enjoy the luxury of the brand, for a fraction of a price. Besides, what is a woman (or man) without her perfume?
