JACADI
Liberty London Taking Over Kids?

Liberty Of London may have dissapointed us all when they closed their NYC Target pop-up shop early last month, but in a phase of redemption they've collaborated with French children's boutique Jacadi, for a shruken sized SS10 bevy.

The bevy of 'must haves for little ones,' features bold floral prints of innocent rompers, smocked dresses, blouses, hats, headbands and more; all decked out in authentic Liberty of London signature prints for girls ages 2-12.

CHANEL
A Friday Night Of Charity

Last Friday, we began our weekend at the Cure Thrift Shop Spring Launch Party in the East Village. The event showcased their spring home and fashion arrivals, with proceeds from the event being donated to the Diabetes Research Institute. There were tons of guests, including NSYNC's Lance Bass, who came out to enjoy stellar pastries and wine, absinthe mojitos, vintage furniture and killer clothes from some of today's leading designers.

APRIL 2010
Poor Styling For Gisele's Vogue Cover?

Not too many people are fond of the April 2010 Vogue cover. Let's just say what's on everyone's mind, the styling sucks.

Gisele Bundchen is in her breeziest 'hey girl' pose ever, and let's face it, could she possibly fit more bracelets on those little wrists?

Not as thick - nor overloaded with advertisements - as the March edition, Vogue is prepared to whip readers into shape for spring in its annual Shape issue.

BIJULES JEWELRY
Marc Jacobs' Fiance Takes Advantage..

It's nice to see that our predictions about Lorenzo Martone (Marc Jacobs' fiance) weren't too far off - considering that after his link-up with the designer, various self-promotions were promptly in tow. And of course, we can add the parties, celebrities, shows and travel to his list as well - but his plans to start designing soon definitely takes the cake.

Martone, who has been in the works to develop a PR consulting label for models, is rumored to be collaborating on a swimwear line with Bijules jewelry designer, Jules Kim, scheduled to launch next spring.

And though it's all rumors, and Jules will most likely deny any claims, we know there is something astir. Jules wouldn't pass up such an opportunity.

Only time will tell.

EMANUEL UNGARO
Lindsay Lohan Back For More Chaos..

What's wrong Lindsay?

Couldn't pull clothing from the label you've destroyed - via Emanuel Ungaro - as 'Artistic Director,' so you opted for Zac Posen in your Purple Magazine 13 cover?

And, are you posing as Jesus? Is that a crown of thorns?

As much as New York does not want to see you attend Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, we all die over Terry Richardson, and admire his photography for the cover.

We won't discuss the video. So feel free to see for yourself.

BARNEY'S NEW YORK
Nina Ricci Releases First Post-Theyskens Ad!

In same color - skin, bag and background - fashion, Peter Copping and Nina Ricci release the labels first ad since the designers' arrival - starring Jessica Stam.

More appropriately - it's the first ad since Olivier Theyskens' departure - but, when will he return?


Thankfully, Theyskens will be having a book launch during Fashion Week on Thursday at Barney's. In our perfect world an exec from Ricci will just so happen to be there after a couple of cocktails and invite Theyskens back - all whilst texting Copping that he's fired. Oop!

By the way, less handbags and more apparel for these ads. Gosh!

BRIANE HATCHER
Marc By Marc Scouts Queens For Spring Ad.

Either Marc Jacobs has a new it boy for his Marc by Marc Jacobs bevy, or students from Queens - who love music - are the new model sensations.

Either way, we like the Spring 2010 and fresh face, Briane Hatcher. Hatcher, who has walked the label's show for 2 seasons, became Marc's casting director's fave.

But, enough about him and onto Juergen Teller's extraordinary photography and location choice.

Do you love it?
