We barely blink an eye when we hear a star has signed as a spokesperson for some strange new product. After all, we’ve seen swimsuit models sell domain name registration, 20-something rock progeny shill anti-cellulite jeans, and musicians who were once staunchly against celebrity perfumes claim to really believe in their new fragrance deals. But insurance? Now that’s a new one.
Back in May, Italian entrepreneur Diego Della Valle revealed he was working on a Schiaparelli reboot. Everyone wondered who would helm the iconic fashion house, and names like John Galliano and Giles Deacon were thrown out — and shot down. But one thing we now know for sure is that Inès de la Fressange is involved.
At the Cannes Film Festival, the parties are just as fashionable as the red carpet.
It’s only the second day of the Cannes Film Festival, but leading ladies like Marion Cotillard, Freida Pinto, Eva Longoria, and Jane Fonda are making big fashion statements.
When one of Karl Lagerfeld‘s close friends marries Naomi Campbell‘s ex-boyfriend, you know the wedding is going to draw more bold-faced fashion names than Marc Jacobs‘ Spring show. Accordingly, Karolina Kurkova, Ines de la Fressange, and Charlotte Casiraghi joined the likes of Campbell and Lagerfeld to celebrate the religious ceremony of Charlene Wittstock’s marriage to Prince Albert of Monaco.
This morning we promised you plenty of Cannes-focused red carpet coverage, and now you’ve got it. The film festival kicked off last night with an opening ceremony feted by the stylish likes of Uma Thurman, Salma Hayek, Rachel McAdams, and Fan Bing Bing — all of whom looked stunning and none of whom (in our humble opinion) held a candle to Ines de la Fressange, who wore embellished, flat sandals with her custom Carven gown. But that’s just our opinion. What’s yours?
From everything we know about Kate Middleton to Kate Moss getting naked for Vogue, if you missed something last week, we’ve got you covered.
We’re falling more and more in love with Ines de la Fressange her particular brand of candid chic every single day. New York Magazine caught up with her at the Roger Vivier boutique Tuesday night, where she revealed how she really felt about walking in Karl Lagerfeld‘s spring 2011 show for Chanel.
Every year, a new book or a new diet comes out that promises to turn us average American women into croissant eating, wine drinking, exercise deploring Parisian women with the flip of a page and the flick of a cigarette. And every year, no matter how hard we try to wear nautical stripes and neutral-toned ballet flats, we’re left just as American as we were the year before. It’s a frustrating cycle — so why do we do it? Because every so often, an interview like the New York Times‘ most recent profile of Ines de le Fressange comes along, and we can’t help but dream of being just like her.
Karl Lagerfeld showed his Spring 2011 collection for Chanel on Tuesday afternoon and for the first time in a very long time, we’re at a loss for words. So much happened. Ines de la Fressange made her triumphant return to the storied house, a bevy of starlets and fashion icons sat front row, super male model Brad Koenig‘s two-year-old son walked the five-minute long runway, and all this was set to the tune of an 80-piece orchestra.
