Theyskens replacement?

Nina Ricci currently has no design creative director. Olivier left along with PR director, Kate Etter, and and the only person whose name has come up in terms of replacing his position is British designer, Peter Copping. Today Mario Grauso verified that he has not invited anyone for the Met and that Ricci is going to announce a new designer within the next few weeks. I am 99.99999999% sure that it will be Peter Copping.

In terms of Olivier and his amazing shoes that he designed for Fall 2009, they ARE NOT GOING INTO PRODUCTION!!!!!!!!! That is simply because Olivier is a genius and no one can handle it.

Inside Scoop: Costume Institute Gala

Calvin Klein, Nina Ricci, Carolina Herrera, and Tod's have confirmed that they will be sponsoring tables at the Gala. Due to the economic situation Burberry, Roberto Cavalli, Versace, Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent, Ralph Lauren and Alberta Ferretti have all SAID NOOO to buying tables this year. So instad of dropping a nice $75,000 to $250,000 on a table they will buy a seat for $5,000 to $10,000 each.

The theme this year? "The Model as Muse." Marc Jacobs is honorary chair. Kate Moss, Anna Wintour, and Justin Timberlake as co-chairs.

Models being the main focus and getting respect in fashion this year could also be another recession tactic. Less focus on celebrities is always budget friendly.

Cafe Gitane

If you have not been to Cafe Gitane, you should make a conscious effort to go for breakfeast, lunch, or dinner. The food is beyond delicious. The restaurant is charming and it is not over priced at all. I seriously dream about it.

Claude Monet

My favorite artist of all time. I might even love him more then Erte. I appreciate every single thing about Monet's life and his art. Born in Paris, and his love for gardens and sailing is so beautiful. I even would have to say his house in Giverny is my favorite place in the world.
