I may not be the proud owner of an iPad just yet, but I can't stop drooling over the array of beautifully designed, unique cases available for the device. Last week, the DODOcase caught my eye, and today I'm lusting over the Kenton Sorenson Leather iPad Portfolio ($140). Handmade in Wisconsin from vegetable-tanned leather, the case wraps your iPad in style. Eventually with wear, the case will age from natural leather to a golden brown. Plus, the slim design ensures your iPad will fit easily in any bag. Don't have an iPad? They have your laptop covered, too.
We interviewed Ohne Titel designers Alexa Adams and Flora Gill at the 2010 New York Fall Fashion Week. Their new collection is influenced by Victorian silhouettes and Old World techniques but with a harder edge - creating modern shapes and textures with mixed mesh and a more athletic form. Think 19th century shape but sleek and easy to wear.
The Ohne Titel Fall 2010 runway bravely combined textures and fabrics like mesh netting, velvet, fox hair, wools and knits -- and pulled it all together into a beautiful, wearable collection. Massive leather belts at the waist, shearling moto jackets, and menswear trousers are just a few of the runway trends. Stay tuned for FabTV's exclusive interview with Ohne Titel's hot designer duo, Alexa Adams and Flora Gill!
Yesterday we discussed Kristen's life aquatic in Proenza Schouler — I'm surprised more of you didn't love it. I thought it was youthful and unique. The Luna Nueva star stopped in Madrid in her favorite vampy color. Black. But she mixed her sheer top, black-bustier Elizabeth and James mini dress with blood-red pumps. Girl's got some stems, albeit pale ones, but that's the way Edward likes them. Do you like?

Kate Moss arrived at the spring 2010 Miu Miu fashion show in Paris earlier this month looking gorgeous in a killer Miuccia Prada-designed leather long sleeve mini dress. Inspired by her supermodel style, we picked our favorite new season leather pieces including a roundup of accessories that complete the tough girl look—chain heels, cropped gloves, a tiny clutch and a wide belt.
A hint of fringe and leather goes a long way. I'm digging the instant edge it lends to Bellakoko's florals — cross-body fringe is a no-fail way to add flair. Plus, she tops with aviators — making the whole thing oh-so young Hollywood.
Here's what she has on:
Congrats to Bellakoko!
Congratulations red leather and relatives, you are officially noncheesy anymore. Berry-stained leather, as exhibited by the ravenous Rachel Weisz in Spain, is utterly appetizing. Of course, a lot depends on the accompaniments. Weisz smartly wore her smooth berry leather jacket with an adorable blue floral dress — both Marc Jacobs Resort — and killer black Barbara Bui suede sandals; she did no wrong. Keeping things feminine and unique will let your raspberry, blueberry, or tayberry piece pop.
Angelina got in major sexy mode last night at the Inglourious Basterds premiere in LA. Despite the fact that she stuck to her signature color, black, she knocked it out of the ballpark with her strapless leather Michael Kors dress. If you recall, Angelina's stylist Jen Rade once told me she puts the actress in black because it allows her strong features to shine. The strappy black Christian Dior sandals and red cocktail ring keep her chic, not biker-chick. But of course, her best accessory is Brad in an all-black (Tom Ford?) suit. Damn.

This fall you don't have to worry that your LBD will leave you in the cold--there are plenty of leather options on deck for the season. Perhaps best demonstrated in the Yves Saint Laurent Fall 2009 collection, this season's leather is sculptural and feminine. Choose from your favorite designers, or, for a more affordable price point, look to high street stores like Topshop for options.
If you look up the term femme fatale — the inspiration for this Vogue Germany spread — it says "an alluring and seductive woman whose charms ensnare her lovers in bonds of irresistible desire, often leading them into compromising, dangerous, and deadly situations." Catherine McNeil is it. She's the epitome of it — womanly, rebellious, sexual, and capable of making men moan. She gets more into character by wearing all black and leather Balmain, Nina Ricci, Alexander Wang, and Yves Saint Laurent. It's leather heaven and this Australian model wears it like no other.
