Glamour Women of the Year Awards

And the Glamour Women Of The Year Award goes to… Kate Beckinsale.

At the awards show, Kate (above at the awards), 34, won for best film actress. Beautiful, sweet, very deserving Kate!

Other notable winners include:
Editor’s Special Award - Lily Allen
Entrepreneur - Kate Moss
Newcomer - Hayden Panettiere
UK Solo Artist - Leona Lewis
Band - The Spice Girls

Okay, first of all, how is Kate Moss and entrepreneur? I give her credit for cleaning up her act (as much as she could) and making a huge comeback into modeling, but just because the model thinks she’s a designer (her collection for Topshop didn’t do too well) doesn’t mean she’s an entrepreneur.

Is Hayden the newcomer of the year because she showed her back in a photoshoot and maintains a daily column on Parez Hilton and The Superficial.

And The Spice Girls? Really, were there no other bands nominated? Uh, I give up…

TrendSpark: Erin O’Connor Ditches the Dress

You rarely see women wearing pants on the red carpet, often taking such moments to relieve their high school prom, you know that magical night when you get drunk off of your ass and vomit in the hair of your date/cousin cause you were too chicken to ask anyone out.  Was that only me?  Anywho,  Erin ditched the stupid poofy dress and opted for some killer wideleg pants and a sweater that makes me wish I was cooler.

Thank you Erin. Hopefully other women will follow suit as they pursue red carpet glory.

Princess Beatrice is the New Muse

Move over Posh, Paris, Agyness, Lydia, Kate… Princess Beatrice concurs all!

Cavalli revealed recently, “Beatrice is always great looking. I’m going to design a few things with her in mind.”

I guess the fashion world is done with plastic ex-spice girls, over sexed socialistas, tom boy models, heiress airheads, anorexic coked out oldies… Royalty is back where it should be, in the spotlight!

Models Turned Music Artists

Irina Lazareanu

Jack White with Karen Elson

From models turned actresses and vice versa, we now have models turned music artists. With the earlier news of model Irina Lazareanu’s (album debuting this Fall) and Nadja Auermann working on a music career, it is easier to grasp that former model Karen Elson (and wife of Jack White of The White Stripes) is also currently pursuing a music career. Also on her plate, the opening of her Nashville vintage boutique in which she plans to sell everything from Ossie Clarke to Valentino couture.

It is soo easy for these girls to do what they want once they have made a name for themselves in the biz, all about the people you know (or are dating, rumor has it that Irina and Pete Doherty are getting cozy). Her album is being produced by Patti Smith, in collaboration with Sean Lennon, and word is circulating that performance outfits will be courtesy of Mason Martin Margiela, Balenciaga, and Ann Demeulemeester, how convenient!

If I had a penny for everytime we mentioned Agyness Deyn well then…

Anyways, it seems as though more and more models are following the Agyness route and chopping off their hair in order to receive the same celeb status as this years most talked about model. Recently, model Freja Beha Erichsen took scissors to her own hair in hopes of becoming this seasons rage. Check out her new do below.

The Supermodels Are Back

Amber Valletta in the Dsquared campaign.

Christy Turlington in her second Escada campaign.

Eva Herzigova in the Louis Vuitton campaign.

Claudia Schiffer in Chanel

Although celebrities have hijacked hordes of fashion ads in recent years, Nineties-era supermodels — displaying formidable powers of longevity — have returned with a vengeance in many of fall’s fashion campaigns. Even Marc Jacobs is going back to using models for his Fall campaign.

That Linda Evangelista is starring in Prada, Naomi Campbell in Yves Saint Laurent, Claudia Schiffer in Chanel and Salvatore Ferragamo, Eva Herzigova in Louis Vuitton and Christy Turlington in Escada suggests these industry thoroughbreds remain as bankable and fascinating as Hollywood’s best beauties.

Gisele Bündchen

Raquel Zimmermann

In fact, models in general — from newbies to veterans — dominate the lion’s share of European designer campaigns for next season, from Daria Werbowy in Christian Dior and Raquel Zimmerman in Fendi to Angela Lindvall in Jimmy Choo and Kate Moss in Stella McCartney. Notable exceptions to the celebrity-free ad zone include Charlotte Gainsbourg for Balenciaga and Vanessa Paradis for Miu Miu — while many American brands also are sticking to the celeb road, such as Calvin Klein’s multiple use of Eva Mendes.

Donatella Versace credits her late brother Gianni for fueling the supermodel phenomenon by sending all the top girls down the runway together in 1991.

“He made the models into celebrities as he understood that the more famous they became, the better it would be for him,” she said. “I don’t really make a distinction between working with celebrities and working with models as I think girls like Christy Turlington and, more recently, Kate Moss and Gisele [Bündchen] are celebrities, just as well-known as many actors and musicians.”

V Man Announces Winner

Hedi Slimane has gotten his shots in and V Man is finally ready to announce the winner of their Ford Models cover. And the winner is (drumroll please) ….. Petey.

Actually from this shoot I don’t know who the fuck Petey is.  All the men look the same with the exception of the blondie, whose name is Adam, but between the other two it’s anyones guess who Petey is.

Personally, I think the Bowie double should have one cause the other two look more like high school students than models. But I guess that’s the new look for men, juvenile.

Watch for Petey on an upcoming cover of VMan and to hit the runways this season as Ford pushes his skinny ass out to the masses.

Last Nights Party: Purple Anthology Launch

The Purple Hounds were out in full force on Tuesday as la creme de la fashion creme hit Colette in Paris to celebrate the launch of Purple magazine’s first “Purple Anthology”.

Collette’s Sarah Lerfel revealed her fondest memory of Purple,  “I actually once did an internship at Purple, but it was more about art then,”

The night was filled with the usually edgies, including Victoire de Castellane, APC’s Jean Touitou, a tattooed Omahyra Mota, and Irina Lazareanu, who turned up in a pair of stapled Viktor & Rolf slacks.

Irina has an album due to hit our shores in Septemeber, she collaborated with Pete Doherty (remember she was in Pete’s video for I’ll Kill Him in which she kills him. Classic. It’s down below.) on a few songs and the record was produced by Patti Smith.

“All we need to do is get Sean [Lennon] and Patti in the same town and make sure Pete’s not in prison and we can get rolling.”

The big news of the night was an announcement by Purple editor Olivier Zahn who told WWD that his next major project is the Chanel Mobile Art magazine, when it hits NYC. He’s also expanding the Purple empire with an office in our Empire city. That’s right folks, Purple’s coming to NY. Expect wild parties with the likes of folks you openly hate, but secretly love.

Sigur Rós, “Gobbledigook”

Sigur Ros has released a new video which is a collaboration with photographer Ryan McGinley, whose photos of naked, thin younguns has gotten much praise and indie love. The video much like the artists work is all about running around ass naked.

For some reason, I feel most of these shots start off this way…

Lydia Hearst at Sex and the City Premiere

Lydia Hearst looks like she bedazzled her own top for the Sex and the City premiere.  I’m sure the thing is from Heatherette, which is starting to fade in “wow” with age, but it’s way to underdressy for an “event” of this caliber. Oh, wait, it was just a movie.  That’s right. So maybe this is just perfect.

What do you think indies?

And why was Lydia the only model on the red carpet?
