Lookbook: L’Wren Scott for Banana Republic

L'Wren Scott for Banana Republic

Target and H&M better look out - Banana Republic's collaboration with high end fashion designer L'Wren Scott is giving them a run for their money when it comes to diffusion lines.

The model-turned-designer recently teamed up with the Gap-owned retailer to put out a collection for next month, and oh how I'd like to get my hands on some of those pieces! From a ruffled, floral jumpsuit and lacy, blue little dress to patterned, deep green suit and the perfect New Year's Eve dress, Scott designed something for every woman (more photos after the jump) but yet with an added touch of her sophisticated, high fashion charm.

You can dust off your credit cards for December 5 (wisely launched during the holiday season!).

Items Du Jour: Natalie for Dior, Sasha for Miu Miu, Leighton for Missoni

Leighton Meester-- Natalie Portman  is stunning in her Christian Dior ad for the fragrance Miss Dior. Knowing that she's an animal rights activist, I can't help but feel reminded of the "I'd Rather Be Naked" campaign...

-- Sasha Pivovarova returns to Miucci Prada's fashionable arms in her Miu Miu Spring/Summer 2011 ads, shot by Mert and Marcus.

-- Take that, Blake! Not to be outshined by her Gossip Girl co-star's Chanel gig, Leighton Meester strikes a pose for Missoni. When there's a will to do high fashion, there's a way.

-- Lindsey Wixson gets in front of Terry Richardson's lens for Opening Ceremony's Spring/Summer 2011 lookbook. Apparently, Terry can do cute and adorable without being sleazy.

-- Speaking of Richardson, Paris Hilton (remember her?) posted a picture of the two on her Twitter, propagating the news that she's going to be in a Vogue editorial -- Vogue Turkey, that is.

Lookbook: Topshop Spring/Summer 2011

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Hairstyles, News,

Topshop Spring/Summer 2011

Prepare to be intimidated (as usual) by the amazing styling skills of Topshop's crew.

The British retailer has unveiled bits and pieces of its Spring/Summer 2011 collection, staying true to the funky patterns and colors we've come to expect from the label. This time, the line blends bohemian chic with modern and preppy touches. I'm also inclined to take a cue from the models' Skittles-esque hair styles. Yes, rainbow hair tips are still in -- with Spring around the corner, what's stopping you now?

Check out the rest of the photos after the jump.

Givenchy Not Appearing in Couture Shows

Givenchy couture is ditching traditional catwalk shows in favor of private appointments with high fashion clients and editors.

The luxury French label is aiming to make fashion even more exclusive by condensing future collections into 10 looks and presenting them in the luxurious settings of an 18th century town house on the Place Vendome in Paris. The label’s couturier Riccardo Tisci told WWD he is tired of traditional fashion shows, saying, “I want to make couture even more special than it is, and not just another catwalk show. People can really experience the couture moment - see it, touch it.”

The presentation will include a lookbook shot by renowned photographer Willy Vanderperre with appearances by David Walliams’ supermodel wife Lara Stone and Mariacarla Boscono.

Laughing off reports this is a cost cutting measure, the label revealed the presentations will actually cost 35 per cent more than a traditional catwalk show. The fashion house, however, is not ruling out smaller fashion shows in the future as Tisci revealed further collections will be unveiled at the label’s couture salons where mini catwalk shows will be held.

“It’s going to be a very good moment for creativity. For couture, it’s going to go back to being very exclusive,” Tisci added, heralding this as a new start.

Karl Lagerfeld Loves Georgia May Jagger

Georgia May Jagger in Chanel Resort 2011Karl Lagerfeld says is the perfect choice to model Chanel.

The creative director of the renowned fashion house was hugely impressed when the 18-year-old rising catwalk star modeled ‘s Cruise 2010 Saint-Tropez collection in Cannes last week and thinks it is the start of successful working union.

He told UK, “Miss Jagger is the modern girl. She is the girl of today. There is a total identification between her and the clothes. They could be her clothes. She is totally at home in Chanel. And that fits in the pattern of what Saint-Tropez can represent, what it is not really and yet what it can inspire.”

Georgia - the daughter of Rolling Stones frontman Sir Mick Jagger and former model Jerry Hall - walked the catwalk in front of a star-studded audience, which included Vanessa Paradis, and Lady Amanda Harlech.

The British Model of the Year also appears in the lookbook for the new collection.

Preview Ready-to-Wear 6126

Lindsay Lohan's 6126 line

While Lindsay Lohan offered up a nice peak at her 6126 line’s handbags, a more complete view of the ready-to-wear apparel has hit the internet.

Leather, fur, lace, thigh-high boots, and neutral shades dominate the line, which features LiLo herself (big surprise there). Additionally, you’ll be able to spot a younger Lohan in the photos (after the jump) as well as a hunky shirtless guy. The line is cute, but there’s nothing in the line that I couldn’t get at Forever 21 or . If you still want to snag a few of these pieces, you’ll unfortunately have to wait until this fall.

Prior to these photos, I was sure of which pieces I wanted to go after—now I want the whole collection! Those gloves and stockings are to die for!

Lookbook: Victoria Beckham Relaunches Denim Line

Victoria Beckham Denim

Our favorite Spice Girl Victoria Beckham is set to relaunch her denim line, dVb (now simply Victoria Beckham Denim), for Spring/Summer ‘10 and we’ve got the lookbook here!

Expected to run about $235 for a pair (more affordable than her dress collection, I’ll say), the range includes an array of cigarette pants, boyfriend jeans, as well as jackets and denim skirts. Judging by the photos, Beckham again offers a simple yet sexy and timeless look—quite possibly Posh Spice meets The Row (minus the latter’s expensive prices)?

Check out the rest of the pictures after the break!

Lookbook: Christopher Kane for Topshop

Bust Cup DressChristopher Kane’s Topshop line is finally here, and the folks at British retail chain offer us a peek with the collection’s lookbook.

Although the line isn’t due in stores until next month, much buzz has been circulating around the Versace designer’s 39 pieces. By the looks of the photos (seen after the jump), it is obvious as to why the hype has originated.

The collection, ranging from $60 for a scarf to $310 for a dress, unfortunately isn’t the cheapest. With dresses like these, however, I think that I can make quite the exception!

The line is expected to come complete with shoes and bags.
