I chose to travel during Inauguration and was able to do limited blogging during the festivities.

So after all this time, I’m only now catching up on what the blogosphere had to say about inaugural fashion.

The Fug Girls’ commentary–on who wore what and how–definitely brought a smile to my face.

I think you’ll love it, too!

Now this is what I call an exciting partnership!

And it’s a great opportunity if you’re an American Express Cardmember.

The global payments company is partnering with acclaimed fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg.

Together, they’ll present a unique runway show for Cardmembers on Wednesday, February 18 at 9:00 PM during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.

Apparently, the designer is taking a new, never-been-done before approach to the runway and creating an opportunity for Cardmembers to experience a multi-season selection of her sought-after designs.

Want another reason to be excited?!

It’s hosted by André Leon Talley, editor-at-large for Vogue magazine.

Those attending the event will have access to the coveted floor seats under the tents to view designs inspired by von Furstenberg’s Spring/Summer 2009 ‘Rock Goddess’ Collection and a special look at some of her Fall 2009 Collection shown only to industry insiders just days before. (Suh-weeet!)

Invitations to this memorable event are on sale. Just four per Cardmember, though; don’t get carried away. 😉

The property formerly known as the Versace mansion has been converted into a hotel.

The former home of Gianni Versace, who was shot dead on the property in 1997, has been rebranded Casa Casuarina.

Located in the heart of Miami Beach, it will also double as a restaurant and event venue.

Check out the Mediterranean-styled estate, still beckoning the privileged few.

Btw, it’s still open for tours at $65 per person, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

I love to celebrate individuality.

And Kim Kardashian sure does stand out with a glaring fashion risk.

Her new sunglasses, which she blogs about, are actually looking kinda fly.

They’re by Maison Martin Margiela.

Never heard of them?

Check out their store on Greenwich Street if you’re ever in New York.

There’s also one in Beverly Hills.

Read Kim’s blog post.

Finding a pair of jeans that fits well can be pure drama.

Too big in the waist, makes your butt look too big or too squishy, length’s too short or too long, etc, etc…

Good news is there’s a jeans brand, indi, that’s trying to solve our problems.

Imagine logging on to a web site, choosing from hundreds of possible style variations, answering a few body shape questions, and having a custom fit pair of jeans made just for you.

I haven’t tried it yet but it sure sounds interesting.

Go ahead, create your own now.

Michael Kors is getting hit with a lawsuit for trademark infringement and “other causes of action.”

Sounds strange for an A-list designer, doesn’t it?

Anyhow, the party filing suit is Tony Duquette, Inc., which controls the  intellectual property rights associated with the late designer and artist Tony Duquette.

They allege that Kors infringed the Duquette proprietary name and trademark by producing and marketing a Kors Resort Collection using the name Duquette without permission.

The Duquette clan is also claiming that Kors used the Abrams book “Tony Duquette,” photographs, images and patterns from the book, and images of Duquette and his long time business associate and co-designer, Hutton Wilkinson, in advertising and promoting the Kors collection.

Damages and injunctive relief are sought.

No word on the amount yet. Stay tuned.

OMG!

How stupid can one person be?!

Every week I’ve watched Lipstick Jungle, admiring the fashion, the styling, etc.

I think I’ve pretty much settled on the fact that most of the ensembles are out of my reach (at least for now).

However, one stage manager for the show didn’t think so.

Now he could find himself in jail for stealing $30,000 in designer digs from the show, according to a CNN report.

 

NEW YORK (CNN) — A stage manager on production facilities for the NBC show “Lipstick Jungle” has been charged with stealing almost $30,000 in designer fashion from the show, the Brooklyn district attorney’s office said.

Arthur Moreira, 27, was arrested Friday in a sting operation that included officers buying stolen goods from Moreira at his apartment, according to a statement from the district attorney’s office.

Employees of French designer Sylvia Toledano first detected the fraud after finding several items that the fashion house had lent to the show on eBay, according to the district attorney’s office.

Among 16 items stolen from Brooklyn-based Broadway Ventures, which owns the production and storage facilities used by “Lipstick Jungle,” were sequined mosaic clutches, an Oscar de la Renta snakeskin bag and Gucci coats, the office said.

Moreira was being held by authorities in Brooklyn pending arraignment.

Fashion plays a major role in “Lipstick Jungle,” a comedy-drama focusing on three high-powered friends. The cast includes actresses Brooke Shields, Kim Raver and Lindsay Price.
