Last night in West Hollywood, W and Guess hosted a party celebrating film and fashion, at which Alexander Antebi of “Who is that guy?” fame gave his best Sharon Stone while stepping and repeating. Just who is Antebi? His Facebook page lists him as CFO (Chief funkadelic officer) at Conquistador. If any of our West Coast friends could explain what that is, we’re all ears!
Those Fabulous Beekman Boys seem to do it all! Not only did they win The Amazing Race, have a reality show on the Cooking Channel, and a line of best selling books, but now they’ve entered the comic book world. Introducing…Polka Spot: My Life in Pictures. The comic was co-written by Darren G. Davis, Michael Troy and the Beekman Boy himself, Brent Ridge.
Retail farewell alert! Vince’s founders, Rea Laccone and Christopher LaPolice, are parting ways with the company they started nearly 14 years ago come February 1. Word of the duo’s departure arrives in tandem with plans for Vince’s parent company, Kellwood, to take the company public. Known for its stylish basics in quality fabrics, particularly its sumptuous cashmere sweaters done in plush neutrals, the sportswear company has grown fast and big since its inception. Besides its stronghold on the realm of perfected staples, the brand has gone a luxe-skewed route in recent years: “Today we’re selling $1,100 leather leggings and $2,000 shearling coats; we’ve really elevated the product,” LaPolice told The Daily in August 2012.
Look what we have here, folks! Anna Wintour attended the Stella McCartney Fall presentation yesterday at 680 Park Avenue and got to have a little visit with Mr. and Mrs. Jerry Seinfeld. What fun! It’s not every day we see Jerry out and about in our neck of the woods…
Tibi: Angular graphics grooved with slouchy layers and hits of colorblock in Tibi’s offering for that innately buyable Pre-Fall season. Black and white presided over the alternations of minis and stovepipes, with a few knee-grazing shorts and skirts cut to the same general hemline in the mix.
The Waldorf Astoria got a massive dose of inspiration last night, thanks to the YMA Fashion Scholarship Fund’s 50th anniversary of the Geoffrey Beene Fashion Impact Awards. Leave it to Lanvin’s adorably bespectacled leading man to bring the poignant punch. On the premises: an array of notable industry movers and shakers, including the eve’s host, Alina Cho of CNN, designer Bibhu Mohapatra, W’s Stefano Tonchi, Paper’s Kim Hastreiter and the guest of honor, Lanvin’s Alber Elbaz. Each year 130 standout fashion students from colleges around the country are invited, with the top eight receiving scholarships to pursue their dreams with aid from the fund. And dreams are just what honorary lifetime achievement recipient Elbaz, was on hand to discuss. “When I arrived in New York I had two suitcases: one little one for my clothes and a big one for my dreams.” Why the connection between Elbaz and Beene’s namesake org? A former protégé of Beene, Elbaz designed for Beene for seven years.
Remember way back in 2010 when we asked if StyledOn was going to become the Facebook of fashion? Two years later, we are pleased to report that it’s more than a Facebook fashion stalking platform; it’s a bridge between consumers and brands.

Martha Stewart asking Marc Jacobs who his favorite porn star is? Indeed, that happened! Last night at the WWD Apparel & Retail CEO Summit opening night dinner at The Plaza, the domestic diva took to Twitter to ask her followers to submit questions for Jacobs and she went there. The crowd included Pamela Love, Olivier Theyskens, Proenza Schouler’s Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough, Elettra Wiedemann, Yigal Azrouel, Eric Wilson, and Tom Florio as Bridget Foley facilitated a discussion with the evening’s keynote speaker. Some newsy items came up, as is the outcome of any heavily industry attended bread-breaking situation, non? To wit: Marc is working on a beauty line with Sephora, his all-time favorite designer dead or alive is Miuccia Prada, and he’s in negotiations with LVMH. But it was that porn question that intrigued the most. The answer? A retired “actor” named Eddie whose last name remains a mystery. Let’s file this away as things we didn’t quite need to know.
Think outside of the box, darlings. Oversized totes and satchels are all too ubiquitous, so consider trading up to a more petite box-shaped clutch, freeing you to juggle with that oversized coat instead. May we suggest an eco-friendly Emm Kuo detailed with geometric stones constructed with shell fragments sourced from the beaches of Filipino province Cebu? Mosaic-esque and madly chic!
