Sadly, summer is coming to an end and I’ll have to say goodbye to lazy days on the beach and martinis on the patio on a hot night. But you know what? I’m not crying about it, especially when I look at Prada’s Fall/Winter 2008 ads! Linda Evangelista looks perfect for the ads shot by Steven Meisel. The “old” becomes the new again! Speaking of old, Prada is trying to bring lace back into resurgence and it looks anything but dowdy! On top of all this, the fashion house is continuing to design unique shoes that are to die for. Those blue striped ones? I need them!

Linda. Lace. Cool Shoes. All hail Prada!

When Anna Wintour loves something, she’s not afraid to show it. Earlier this year, she wore the same Prada dress to at least three different events. Of late, the Vogue editor’s new favourite is a Carolina Herrera shift dress that has been modified from the resort collection. Again, she’s worn it on three seperate occasions – the Ferragamo show in Milan, to Wimbledon, and a few days ago at the Chanel couture show. You have to give her kudos for donning the same outfit multiple times – afterall, this is a woman who has unlimited access to clothes. Personally, I love the Carolina Herrera dress and it is very flattering on her. I am the same as Anna; when I fall in love with something, I fall hard. See? We have many things common with one another… Anna, please give me a job at Vogue!

On my way to work last week, I lost my cell phone on the bus. Naturally, I panicked but I was secretly giddy because it meant getting a new cell phone. I’ve been obsessed with getting my paws on LG’s sleek Prada cell phone, which operates very similarly to the iPhone. (Prada and LG’s way of saying, “Screw you, Apple!”) Sure, the phone is driven by design and not function, but who the hell cares as long as it’s slim and beautiful – that’s how I like all things in life anyway!

But fashion is a cut-throat world and there’s always a young, prettier model competing for attention. This is where the new Dior phone comes in. The $5000 (!!!) phone comes with a “My Dior”, which is a small clip so you don’t have to rummage through your purse. It’s kind of like Mini-Me to Austin Powers, if you will. The colors remind me of the Dior Addict lip gloss although I’m not sure that’s a good thing. Don’t laugh but it’s a little too gaudy for my taste. In all fairness, if you pay that much for a phone, it damn well better be gaudy!

There’s also a Motorola RAZR by Dolce and Gabbanna decked out in gold and a Samsung phone by Armani. Luckily, or unluckily, the bus company found my cell phone so you won’t see me walking around town with a haute couture phone for now. On a brighter note, surely this is a sign that fashion can be found anywhere, anytime. Hallelujah!

Only a few hours remain until the Met’s Costume Institute Gala kicks off and everyone is glammed up, excited, and ready to gossip. Last-minute secrets are being revealed about who is wearing what, who is or is not attending, and lots more!

  • Agyness Deyn announced that she wouldn’t be attending the ball due to a European fashion shoot quite awhile ago. Curious. Especially since it’s been revealed that Burberry’s Christopher Bailey is taking Lily Donaldson, Agy’s fellow model in the Burberry ads. Not to mention everyone in the fashion industry is in New York tonight so what important shoot can our favourite Brit punk be on? Was I right about Agy? Oh and Mario Testino will wear Burberry tonight as well.
  • Stella McCartney will bring Kate Moss.
  • Anna Wintour will wear a custom Chanel Haute Couture black and white embroidered dress that Karl Lagerfeld designed especially for her. Who says the devil wears Prada? Kate Bosworth will also attend with Uncle Karl and Cameron Diaz has scored an invite as the guest of Vogue.
  • Iman, David Bowie, Scarlett Johansson, and others will be dressed by Dolce & Gabanna.
  • Audrey Tautou will wear Chanel tonight as the new face of Chanel No. 5. So long Nicole Kidman.
  • Liv Tyler, Fergie, and Rachel Bilson will be in Calvin Klein
  • Gisele and Tom Brady will arrive with Donatella Versace
  • Dita von Teese and Eva Longoria will wear Marchesa
  • Gossip Girl is everywhere! Blake Lively will attend the gala tonight with Tory Burch.
  • The Olsens will wear DVF
  • Rachel Zoe was disinvited to the ball! Poor thing. Ha.

This IS the best night of the year and the excitement has reached a boiling point! I’m excited to see who will dress in this year’s superhero themes. Please put Andre Leon Talley in a spiderman suit. That will be the best.
