Own A Piece Of Hollywood History

We love looking to movies for fashion inspiration but can’t imagine actually owning Marilyn Monroe‘s pink dress from “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes” or the carpet bag from “Mary Poppins.” For starters, Marilyn’s dress would never fit. However, movie fanatics and fashion lovers who want a piece of history will want to prep for antique company Profiles in History‘s Hollywood Memorabilia auction. The collection of iconic costumes from famous movies begins June 10, and Profiles in History claims Marilyn’s pink dress is “the most important film dress to ever come to auction” and expects it to sell for anywhere between $150,000 and $250,000. Meanwhile, Julie Andrews’ bag could grab $10,000 to $12,000. Clearly you’d have to be majorly rich to place a bid. [Stylelist] Keep reading »

Lady Gaga’s Armani Confection On “American Idol”

Fresh from her performance at Monday night’s Met Ball, Lady Gaga showed off her musical talent to hopefuls on “American Idollast night. Obviously, it wouldn’t be a Gaga moment without an over-the-top costume, so Giorgio Armani created this breathtaking number. He envisioned a fresh take on her favorite form of clothing — the bodysuit — and dressed her in a fishnet-like material from her face to her feet, embellished with Chantilly lace, crystals, and beading. To show a teensy bit of modesty on television, the entire outfit is topped off with an organza cape. What did you think of her costume? [WWD] Keep reading »

New Barbies Have The Faces Of Australian Models

Victoria’s Secret Angel Miranda Kerr made an estimated $3 million last year, making her the ninth highest paid model of 2009. But while she’s only just cracked the top ten on that front, she’s got something only one of the girls in front of her on the pay list can claim: an insanely expensive Barbie doll made in her image. Honestly, we don’t totally see the resemblance, but the diamond jewelry-wearing doll pictured is meant to be a mini Kerr — and yes, those diamonds are real. The doll was unveiled two days ago at Australian Fashion Week along with 11 other Barbies modeled after popular models. Aussies Abby Lee Kershaw, Elyse Taylor, and Catherine McNeil also made the cut.

An Uptown Silhouette With A Downtown Edge

Not to pull the “SATC” fashion card, but this Forever 21 dress is a classic Charlotte. With a business-chic construction, she’d strut it down Park Avenue in the daytime, but also be able to work it downtown after hours thanks to that sexy mesh collar and peek-a-boo back. What’s one more LBD in your closet? They’re always put to use somehow, whether you’re going for the girly or the girls’ night out.

How To Crash A Fashion Party

The Met Gala after-party at the Standard Hotel’s Boom Boom Room earlier this week looked like just about the most awesome event you were never invited to. Thanks to Twitter, you probably sat at home, refreshing constantly to see all the privileged fashion writers posting live Tweets. (Thanks, WWD, for rubbing it in our faces with updates like this: “Katy Perry crawled over to and underneath Kristen Bell’s dress.”)

Well, screw that. You want to be a part of the action?* We asked some industry insiders for advice on crashing fashion parties. Their tips, after the jump. [WWD] Keep reading »
