Denim is a closet staple, and like anything in perpetual rotation, sometimes it could use a little revamp. Here's one we're loving: drawstring denim. This take on your classic blues is casual and still sophisticated, a remodeled fit with a nod to our comfier clothes. But remember, these aren't sweatpants — they're meant to be dressed up; add a femme top, like Fab reader NikitaAshley, to counter the slouchier silhouette and go for heels to play up the fashion angle.
>> See Zoe Saldana's Calvin Klein Underwear Commercial —While Joe Zee, who started filming his new show this week, is taking a stab at Emmys red carpet reporting on Extra, E! got dibs on breaking Zoe Saldana's new Calvin Klein Underwear commercial — she joined the brand as a face last month — pre-Emmy Awards Sunday night.

>> The One Clothing Item That Eludes Daphne Guinness —Daphne Guinness was suffering from a foot wound over the weekend at a Calvin Klein-sponsored AIDS benefit held at Steven Klein's house in Bridgehampton, but that didn't stop her from wearing ten-inch platform heels (although she did eventually rest her feet by standing on the side of the shoes). Dramatic as her wardrobe may be, Guinness admitted that there is at least one hole in its extensive confines: "I like to experiment with different fabrics and see what happens. There's one fabric I've been looking for for five years. It's like an LCD screen, but it's supple. You'd be able to play the movie 'Sunset Boulevard' on your T-shirt. The military has the first option on it. I keep asking them, 'Can't you just give me a little bit?'" [WSJ]

Can you feel it? Fall is almost on its way, and what better way to get excited than looking at all of what's to come. Our latest batch of Fall ads feature cool campaigns from the likes of Jean Paul Gaultier, Jil Sander, Tommy Hilfiger, St. John, Calvin Klein, to name a few. My favorite has to be Stella McCartney's campaign featuring model of the moment, Natalia Vodianova. That camel knit cardi looks super sumptuous, and we adore the quirky cute typography.
