Barneys Cancels Jay-Z Fundraiser Event

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Celebrities, News, Sales,

Jay-ZIs trouble brewing in Barneys and Jay-Z's fashion paradise?

The high-end retailer just announced that they will no longer be throwing a fundraising party tomorrow night to celebrate the launch of their collaboration collection with the rapper. “Due to unforeseen circumstances, the event has been canceled," read a statement from Barneys.

The news comes after Jay-Z has been pressured by fans to withhold his collection with the retail store once they properly address the racial profiling allegations against them. There is no word, however, that Jay-Z had a hand in cancelling Wednesday's party.

Proceeds of the first day's sales from Jay-Z's items and ten percent of the profits from the overall store that day are intended to go towards his Shawn Carter Foundation - the same organization to which the fundraising party was intended to benefit.

Elle Fanning

Can we just take a minute to bask in the elegance and awesomesauce that is Elle Fanning's style?

The 15 year-old (I know, it's not fair, right?) showed up in this fabulous Rodarte Spring 2013 look to the Hammer Museum on Monday night, where Rodarte and Todd Cole presented their film collaborations. The sleek sheer over the skirt matched with a very feminine take on a tuxedo top make for one brilliant gown, which Elle effortlessly and goodness knows glamourously wore to the event.

Fanning's look is a breath of fresh air among tacky Halloween costumes and previous questionable fashions.

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Celebrities, News,

Tilda SwintonThough Tilda Swinton is as unique in style as they come, the Scottish actress decided to honor the look of iconic British musician David Bowie by imitating him!

Swinton, 52, dressed up as "The Stars (Are Coming Out Tonight)" singer at the unveiling of the his exhibition, David Bowie is, at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London. From her perfectly coiffed short hair down to her glistening blazer and wide-legged pants, the We Need to Talk About Kevin star could pass as Bowie's twin sister.

Truthfully, Swinton - who starred in the music video for Bowie's latest single - sees him more of a cousin. "I've been a  Bowie fan since the age of 12. So to work with him was well.... He's my cousin," Swinton said.

Other stars like Rosario Dawson, Matt Smith, and Chloe Delevigne appeared at the opening for the exhibition - which runs from March 23 to August 11 and features a retrospective of Bowie's career - though none clearly looked as stunning as Tilda!

Paris Hilton

Making an appearance at the launch event for Lady Gaga's latest fragrance, Fame, Paris Hilton apparently looked to both Madonna and the Roman gladiators when she put together this ensemble. So is Paris' dress chic in a dramatic and structural Gareth Pugh way, or is it just downright trying too hard to fit into Lady Gaga's event?

(Check out more questionable fashion looks here.)

Mark - who was helped by his assistant Wes Brown - explained, "It's kind of a Renaissance era cherub, a nod to her Italian heritage."

Items Du Jour: Lana Del Rey Covers GQ, Katie Holmes Opens Up About Designing

Gisele Bundchen for ESPRIT+ "Born to Die" singer Lana Del Rey covers British GQ in nothing more than jewelry. Dubbed Woman of the Year by the men's magazine, her editorial on the inside of the glossy is apparently just as risque.

+ David Sims photographed Gisele Bundchen for the latest ESPRIT campaign, which features Mrs. Brady in a cool, tailored suit coupled with tousled sex hair (because that's totally how everyone wears their locks to work).

+ Singer of the infectious "Call Me Maybe" hit, Carly Rae Jepsen, is expanding her empire by modeling for Wet Seal. To celebrate the union, the clothing store is giving shoppers a chance to win a shopping spree with Jepsen, as well as tickets to see her and Justin Bieber in concert.

+ Katie Holmes opens up to WWD about her fashion career, in which she claims that she's not afraid to fail (although anyone with a hefty divorce settlement from Tom Cruise would also probably not be too afraid to waste money).

Stella McCartney

Stella McCartney opened her first ever standalone Adidas by Stella McCartney store over the weekend.

The designer - who has created the Adidas kit for the Great Britain team to wear during the London Olympics this summer - chose South Kensington's Brompton Cross in London as its location, which is also home to the her mainline and childrenswear shop: "This store is a real celebration of what we have been building for the last eight years together with Adidas and hopefully it is going to be the home for women to go to and find everything they need for their sports - and at the same time not having in any way to sacrifice their style.

Karlie Kloss and Jason WuKarlie Kloss and Jason Wu are teaming up to raise $50,000 for AIDS organizations.

The model and the designer are close friends and will head up a team called Step Forward to complete a 6.2-mile sponsored AIDS Walk around New York this Saturday. They are currently taking sponsorships to reach their target.

"The idea came about at the Met Ball with a mutual friend of ours. We were in a sea of glamour and we looked at each other and said, 'what do we do next?' The AIDS Walk became a perfect opportunity to change our ballgown and black tie for sneakers and work-out clothes. Juicy Couture is even donating a bucket of money for me to wear their clothes for the event which is amazing - it's fantastic to see my friends in the fashion community getting behind us, come on guys!" Karlie explained.

Karlie, 19, wore a custom-made pink gown by Jason to the Met ball earlier this month. She joked she had been training for the walk by getting plenty of practice on catwalks:
