However, Whitney's lawyer, Michael Taitelman, tells sources, “The lawsuit that Adrienne Baravetto filed on March 19, 2010 against Whitney Eve, Inc., Whitney Port and others regarding the Whitney Eve clothing line is baseless and without merit. Whitney Port is, and always has been, the designer of Whitney Eve.” Let the drama begin . . .
While some of you are skeptical about Madonna's new clothing line, perhaps some solid details will sway you. The pop icon, known for her breakthrough ensembles on and off the stage, is now part of a multi-label fashion project called MG Icon. Her first project? A Macy's juniors line — targeting 13- to 25-year-olds — inspired by her daughter Lourdes Leon. “Lourdes has an incredible sense of style and her point of view on fashion has definitely been an inspiration for the line,” said Jeff Gennette, from Macy's.

Look what we have here — Lauren Conrad's Spring '10 collection for Kohl's! Unlike her former Lauren Conrad Collection, LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl's is affordable and truly mimics Lauren's sweet California aesthetic. One of the standouts is this LC Lauren Conrad Ruffled Dress ($40, originally $60), modeled by Lauren herself.
In one word: darling; flutter sleeves, ruffles, romantic prints, sheer fabrics, light hues. But there's a tough side to this story as well; sharp blazers, shredded jeans, liquid leggings, and grays also play a part. Check out the rest of the Spring line below, then take home your favorite LC Lauren Conrad pieces.

It was a media doozy last year when fashion darling Esteban Cortezar left Ungaro, and the house hired Lindsay Lohan as its "artistic advisor." Now, one questionable Spring collection later, the celebrity designer has confirmed she is no longer with the fashion house. When asked why she wasn't present at Ungaro's Fall '10 runway show this week, Lohan responded, “Because I don’t work for them anymore. There's legal things going on; I can’t really discuss it." Ungaro owner Asim Abdullah also commented stating, "She's not involved in this [Fall '10] collection." Looks like it's the end of the road for Lohan and Ungaro — are you surprised?
Get ready for the next trend in designers: Models. Natalia Vodianova pour Etam, Alexa Chung for Madewell, Low Luv and Erin Wasson, and so on. Now the gorgeous, feline-looking Jessica Stam has hooked up with Rachel Roy to co-design a capsule collection. "Fashion is something I grew up surrounded by, so now that I'm putting pen to paper the ideas are flying out," Stam said. The collection — part of the Rachel Rachel Roy line — will be unveiled at New York Fashion Week in September, and will officially launch in October. This has some serious cute potential.
I've developed quite a crush on Alexa Chung ever since I met the cool girl at her Madewell launch party in NYC — check out our exclusive interview with her during New York Fashion Week. I can't stop thinking about her cute British accent and, even more so, her upcoming collection for Madewell. Here's a close-up look at her creations for J.Crew's lil sis: high-waisted shorts, oxfords, long cardis, and sweet, vintage-inspired frocks are all true representations of her style aesthetic. Too bad she didn't dream up a cheaper rendition of her Mulberry Alexa bag. Additionally, Madewell just released new looks for its signature collection, adding colorful printed shirts, clean jeans, and green parkas to its Spring mix. Take a lusty look at all of it now!
Jeremy Scott chats with FabTV behind the scenes at his Fall runway show at NY Fashion Week. Highlights from his creative collection started with an update on the little black dress and evolved into using text as a print, incorporating bold charms, and finding a rather unique source of inspiration.
