Get a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the Louis Vuitton campaign for fall/winter 2010, featuring Christy Turlington, Karen Elson, and Natalia Vodianova — or, as Marc Jacobs calls them, “three of the most beautiful women, I think, in the world.” The ladies pose for photographer Steven Klein in a faux dressing room done up in old-school Hollywood glamour. There’s lots of ’50s ponytails, retro-dresses, and, of course, bags, bags, and more bags. It’s definitely a return to tailored femininity; punk rock, it ain’t. Makeup artist extraordinaire Pat McGrath makes a cameo. It’s all very pretty-pretty and perfect for those among you who consider yourselves girlie girls. Keep reading »
Marc Jacobs seems to be rubbing off on his adorable significant other, Lorenzo Martone, who’s decided to give clothing design a shot. Having spent years working on fashion brands at advertising agency Chandelier Creative, Martone’s no stranger to style and creativity, but the swimwear line he’s creating with jewelry designer Jules Kim is his first go at designing. The label, Nycked, is said to be inspired by Brazil, and it allegedly involves sequins, lacing, and rather large bows. Pics aren’t out yet, but we’re curious to see where this goes.

“I’m as tortured as ever, I see my shrink once a week, have all the same mood swings, I can sit there the night before a show and think, ‘What if they hate it? What if my life is over and I am homeless?’ … But I also have a certain amount of self-awareness at this point, and I recognize all those neuroses are just human. It’s why I think now I am attracted to yellow. It’s positive; it’s the optimistic choice.”

Maybe it’s because we’re bloggers, but for us, our computers rank among our most prized possessions. In fact, some of us would even say that our primary relationship is (sadly) with a laptop. To be fair, Lappy can be better than a boyfriend—he keeps you warm in bed, cuddles up with you any time to watch a movie, and is there for you in the middle of the night when you can’t sleep. So, we like to take good care of good ole Lappy McLapperson by making sure he’s dressed up in a swank case, like this Marc by Marc Jacobs denim sheath decorated with a multicolor sketch print. True, the girl illustrated on the cover doesn’t look too happy, but that’s the same look we’d get if Lappy broke up with us. Best to keep a reminder around so we treat him well.
