Cavalli Dresses Coke

Fashion Designer Roberto Cavalli has dressed some of the world’s most notable names and now he’s adding an even bigger name to the list – Coca-Cola.

Coca-Cola Light (Europe’s version of Diet Coke) will be getting a fall fashion makeover compliments of Cavalli himself. He’s created a trio of limited-edition designs to adorn the classic glass soda bottles.  The three motifs feature the designer’s staple animal prints – zebra and leopard.

The limited run of 300,000 bottles will be distributed exclusively in Italy from September through December.

For those of you not fortunate enough to be living in, or visiting Italia this fall, fear not, expect a bevy of ebay listings for these covetable creations.

Jennifer Hudson plays overeager assistant to Carrie Bradshaw herself. In her quest to impress the city’s best loved columnist and fashionista, Hudson happens upon a Web site that could very well replace diamonds as a woman’s best friend.

BagBorroworSteal.com’s “steal it” option allows for the borrower to request to purchase the bag. The age and condition of the bag will be evaluated and a fair price will be negotiated.

Not a bag lady? BagBorroworSteal.com also carries designer jewelry lines. Have that amazing Vera Wang cocktail ring or those David Yurman pearls sent straight to your door.

Kayne Keeps The Sun At Bay

I am love, love, loving these shades. Benjamin dubbed them the “Kanye” no doubt in honor of our favorite college dropout’s penchant for old school Ray-Bans. Gotta love the tortoise shell and clip on lenses. All I need is an extra 500 bucks….

Fashion Week Faves

Gotta love New York fashion week. Here are a few of my favorite Fall 2008 runway looks.

Anna Sui – This is what a 1970’s flapper would look like.

Marc by Marc Jacobs – Minnie Mouse as done by Marc Jacobs. The orange boots just do it for me.

Philosophy – This one is my favorite look of all, hands down. The Great Gatsby’s, Daisy Buchanan meets Tim Burton’s, Lydia Deetz.

Monique Lhuillier – Sequins and fringe…what more can a girl ask for?

Temperley – Military chic never gets old.

Zac Posen Makes Pretty Purses

I’ve never been one to swoon over a handbag. Until now that is. I am in love…in love with Zac Posen for making this bag.

How Many Knickers Could A Knicker Picker Pick?

Online shopping can be risky business. No, I don’t mean in regards to identity theft. I’m thinking more along of the lines of size uncertainty and the buyer’s remorse that ensues after receiving an ill fitting item in the mail from your favorite dot com.

Online shopping for lingerie can be all too troublesome. And that’s exactly why the folks across the pond at Knickerpicker.com have developed a flash animated site that allows the customer to try their bras and panties on for size.

A selection of real life models model your desired undergarments on for you in a virtual dressing room, so you can see exactly what you’re getting. Brilliant idea, wouldn’t you say?

Marion, Je T’aime

Oh, awards season…one big fashion show. This year’s SAG Awards has proven to be one of the most glamorous events of the past 12 months or maybe even the past 12 years, if I may be so bold. Tinseltown’s darlings dressed to the nines and made sure every detail was primped to perfection (or at least their stylists did).

These three ladies were especially flawless and did the red carpet the way it’s meant to be done.
