>> Michelle Obama has taken to wearing British designers this week — she wore Roksanda Ilincic for the first time while greeting Chinese president Hu at the White House on Wednesday and then chose an Alexander McQueen gown by Sarah Burton (left) for the state dinner honoring the People's Republic of China that evening.
Oscar de la Renta, who two years ago criticized what he said was Obama's lack of support of American fashion, is back again, questioning why she chose the McQueen gown for the occasion. “My understanding,” de la Renta told WWD, “is that the visit was to promote American-Chinese trade — American products in China and Chinese products in America. Why do you wear European clothes?”
De la Renta noted that Obama continues to have the power to boost a house's business, and added: “I’m not talking about my clothes, my business. I’m old, and I don’t need it. But there are a lot of young people, very talented people here who do."

Getting a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame is huge.

>> After last week's rumor suggesting that Google is launching ecommerce on Wednesday, a few clarifying details have come up: the initiative Boutiques.com is actually a curation of virtual boutiques; visitors won't be able to purchase directly from Google but rather, will click through to a brand's online store or an online retailer like Saks, Net-a-Porter, or Barneys to purchase the item.
There are at least 19 designers, including Oscar de la Renta, Tory Burch, Cynthia Rowley, Marchesa, Isaac Mizrahi, Tracy Reese, Prabal Gurung, and Erin Fetherston, who have been invited to set up virtual stores on the site. There will also be curated boutiques selling looks worn by celebrities and influencers like Lady Gaga, Victoria Beckham, Emma Watson, Anna Wintour, Rachel Zoe, and Michelle Obama. Sarah Jessica Parker has been asked to set up her own personalized shop, and a handful of high profile bloggers are also said to have been invited to curate their own boutiques in exchange for a low five-figure payment.
The idea is to have any user be able to do the same — create and share their own personalized boutique with items, brands, and looks they prefer. Elements of entertainment, gaming, and social media are also planned.
