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. 😉
It was only a matter of time until Whitney Port was shipped off to star in her own reality series.
Look out for Whit in MTV’s new show, “The City”.
It premieres Monday, December 29 at 10p.m. ET/9p.m. Central.
- In the first two episodes airing back-to-back, Whitney leaves the “The Hills” and the familiarity of California behind to strike out on her own.
- She’ll be working at global design house Diane Von Furstenberg in New York City.
- With a best friend from her past and a guy she’s head-over-heels for, Whitney will balance a new circle of friends as she navigates the fashion industry’s upper echelon.
- Sounds kinda boring until you consider that trust issues develop as Whitney contemplates who she can trust in a city full of people with their own agendas.
If you can’t wait until December 29, head over to http://TheCity.MTV.com to browse through cast photos and bios, watch the show trailer and get the latest “City” gossip on the Remote Control blog.

The latest designer to launch into the foreign cruise runway moment is Diane von Furstenberg.
And we ♥ what we’re seeing!
Yesterday, she staged a show in Italy’s Florentine garden as celebrity and sports greats mingled with Italian aristocrats.
According to Fashion Wire Daily, Diane’s drawing power was clear from the A-listers in the front row. Tony Parker and Eva Longoria sat between princes and princesses of the Corsini, Torlonia,Borromeo and Pucci family, along with Western Europe’s greatest dandy Lapo Elkann.
It being Diane, this cruise also attracted the great and the good of fashion media: Vanity Fair’s Elizabeth Saltzman, Suzy Menkes and Hamish Bowles, plus a smattering of designers – Christian Louboutin, Eva Cavalli and ever elegant Eric Wright.

Mary-Kate Olsen covers July’s edition of ELLE Magazine.
“I think there’s a real disconnect between the media’s perception of fashion and the fashion world’s idea of fashion,” argues Mary-Kate. “I don’t know why I wear some of the things I wear…it’s sort of like an art,” she tells the mag during the interview.
Olsen speaks of her role as a fashion designer and businesswoman, and talks about life as a twin.
