>> Stefano Pilati's failure to appear at last night's Metropolitan Opera Gala, Yves Saint Laurent's biggest event of the year stateside, raised a few eyebrows, The Daily reports. For the last two years running, Pilati has showed at the event, usually with Anna Wintour by his side, but last night neither appeared.
Apparently during Paris Fashion Week, talk turned to Pilati's sales performance at the brand: top retailers reported that Yves Saint Laurent's accessories sell well (Pilati has a foundation in shoes and bags) but the ready-to-wear fails to resonate with customers. Rumors that PPR is searching for a new creative director at the brand ensued.
Last night, at the Metropolitan Opera Gala premiere of Armida, she opted for a simple black jumpsuit. There's no question she can pull that off, but long noir gloves in April just seem too wintry to me. I'm all about dramatic effect, but I feel like it's a month, or two, too late. That funky gold necklace saves the look, breaking up the all black, but I'd like to see a little more skin — you?
Kardashian sis Kourtney showed off her post-baby bod in Miami Beach. She looks pretty fly in her Free People coral print romper and teetering YSL tribute platform sandals. Rich accessories — a tough gold watch, a long strap black Chanel bag, and Tod's square sunglasses — ooze style appeal. I don't know, that romper is pretty cute . . .

Paris Fashion Week concludes the Fall Fashion Week season — sniff. So far, Fall forecasts include army green, major furriness, cocooned knits, and maxed-out skirts. Rounding out that list is red. From Maison Martin Margiela to Givenchy, Sophia Kokosalaki to Isabel Marant, bold pops of red livened up the moody Paris palette. Silhouettes ranged from slick and slim to all-out poufy. Proceed for more highlights from PFW.
The Oscar-winning actress and presenter is serene and statuesque in metallic YSL. Love the modern feel of the fitted bodice offset with more intricate jewels. With a larger statement necklace, she keeps earrings simple and adds a diamond bracelet and simple clutch to complete her elegant look.

At $65, Yves Saint Laurent's limited-edition Y-Mail complexion palette lives up to the brand's reputation for luxury. While it's a splurge, it may be the most affordable YSL "bag" you'll ever find.
If you're thinking about treating yourself with something special, here are a few more prettily-packaged high-end makeup items for inspiration. Some are glitzy due to the addition of crystals and decorative baubles, others are intricate in pattern, and a few are simply luxurious due the sleek, understated design. Which ones are your favorites?
Here's what she has on:

The nippy weather didn't stop Zoe from attending the How to Make It in America screening in NYC. On the contrary, the actress braved the cold and was all smiles as she posed for the photogs in her dark denim skinnies, lace blouse by Dolce and Gabbana, a Cecelia clutch, and flat boots. Her long white coat adds extra warmth and extra style to her slick 'fit. Another win for Zoe!

>> Yves Saint Laurent Has Another Manifesto in the Bag —In what is quickly becoming Fashion Week tradition, Yves Saint Laurent has a new edition of its Manifesto, this time housed in a strawberry-printed tote — the fruit motif appeared all over Stefano Pilati's Spring 2010 collection for the label. On February 16, over half a million copies of the Manifesto (which includes images of brand face Natalia Vodianova captured by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin) will be distributed in Paris, London, Milan, Tokyo, Hong Kong and, for the first time, Berlin — with the first 2,000 passersby receiving the tote as well.
