>> Ever wonder what populates the closets of streetstyle favorites like Teen Vogue fashion market editor Mary Kate Steinmiller or Harper's Bazaar senior fashion market editor Joanna Hillman? A few months ago, designer Erin Kleinberg and her friend Stephanie Mark, with photographer Jake Rosenberg in tow, started documenting just that — fashion insiders' handbags, shoes, jewelry, and clothes, shot in their apartments — complete with personal anecdotes about what each item signifies and where it comes from, for their newly launched site, TheCoveted.com. Already up for the viewing are Steinmiller (above and below), Hillman, and Theory and Helmut Lang communications & celebrity director, Mona Sharf, with more fashion editor, publicist, stylist, model, and blogger subjects promised soon. In fact, they're shooting with Net-a-Porter US editor Tracy Taylor right now. [The Coveted]
>> It turns out that the House of Style revival on MTV isn't quite what we thought; rather than bring back the series, MTV partnered with Teen Vogue for a Spring House of Style special. Bar Refaeli is indeed host, and Chanel Iman, rather than co-host, is a correspondent.
The show is definitely targeted at teens: Bar counts down a Top 10 Most Wanted Trends list — think jelly shoes; talks designer DIYs — Teen Vogue fashion editor Mary Kate Steinmiller teaches viewers how to make friendship bracelets with Charlotte Ronson; catches up with Justin Timberlake for a behind-the-scenes look at his Fashion Week show; and chats with Taylor Swift about her style. But there is a segment with Jessica Stam, who opens her closet to talk "how to make the most of what's already there," and Chanel catches up with Erin Fetherson to throw a dinner party, so definitely worth a look; it premieres this Saturday, March 21, at 3 PM EST/PST.
