>> Carine Roitfeld has popped over to New York — last night, she wore Givenchy couture to the amfAR Gala "because I’m working with amfAR and it’s very important for me to be here," and tonight, she was at her son Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld's RETNA art opening, wearing "all Rick Owens," she told us, but she's "not seeing any fashion shows" and goes back to Paris on Saturday. She's definitely not out of fashion for good — last night she told The Cut, "I have a new project" which is "in fashion, of course." Although she's "too superstitious" to discuss details, she did promise more information "in one month." [The Cut]
Nicole Richie looked cute and cozy while walking through Heathrow airport. Her black Rick Owens beanie, paper-thin tee, thick leggings, patent Mary-Jane Lanvin flats, Coco-inspired Chanel sunglasses, and matching quilted bag combined to make the perfect globe-trotting ensemble. As if her look wasn't stylish enough, Nicole kept warm in a red-hot Sonia Rykiel double breasted peacoat with matching crimson nails. Shop now for like items to copy Nicole's trendy travel style.

Now that we've paid tribute to the lady-like Parisian, it's time to call upon the other end of the the spectrum: the edgy rebel. Paris Fashion Week presenters, like Balmain and Isabel Marant, are sure to show exciting collections this week, but until then, shop some of their items — along with pieces from Rick Owens and Lanvin — available now!
Left to right: Clemence Poesy, Rick Owens Silk-blend Jersey Tank ($235), Isabel Marant Earrings ($550), Chanel Oversized Wallet Clutch ($890), Isabel Marant Chain-Mail Scarf Necklace ($290), Rick Owens Distressed Denim and Leather Jacket ($1,080), Balmain Suede Pants ($5,865), Julia Restoin-Roitfeld, Lanvin Cutout Pumps ($1,110)
I'm sure you all have plenty of t-shirts in your stash, but do you have a one-shouldered tee in the mix? This Rick Owens Lilies Asymmetric Tee ($160, originally $228) has badass written all over it. The simple subtraction of one sleeve takes the look from regular to off-kilter. Genius, but even at 30 percent off, it's pricey. Sorry, Rick, we have to move on . . .

>> Courtney Love, who launched WhatCourtneyWoreToday.com last week, has been gifted many a designer dud over the years, but she's typically given it an unconventional welcome. She's set fire to some of it (“Marc [Jacobs] sent me and Kurt [Cobain] his Perry Ellis grunge collection . . . We burned it. We were punkers — we didn’t like that kind of thing.”); tried to take shears to some of it (“I went to whack [a floral, Empire-waist couture gown given to her by John Galliano in 1997] with scissors because it would be more useful that way . . . Somebody said to me, ‘You aren’t whacking s--t and this is why,’ and explained to me what couture was.") . . . and has even worked out in some of it ("I perform in Rick [Owens], I sleep in Rick and I jog in Rick. I have, like, eight pairs of his harem pants. I’ve been running in Rick Owens for years.")
Of all the hotties at the Mulberry party in LA last night, Jessica Stroup looked like she had the most fun. The 90210 star was all smiles wearing a tenacious textural 'fit composed of an embellished black skirt, v-neck halter top, and lace cardi. Black pumps, a matching clutch, and a chunky silver ring are her accompaniments of choice. It's all black — and far from basic.
