There was so much Fabness that went on in 2007, in case you missed it the first time around, here's a rehash: Roberto Cavalli designed a budget-friendly line for H&M; Reese Witherspoon wore a gorgeous ombre Nina Ricci gown to the Oscars; Fendi held the first fashion show ever on the Great Wall of China; Vera Wang launched Simply Vera at Kohl's; Jennifer Garner looked smokin' at the MTV Video Music Awards; and you even fessed up to what ugly shoes you're guilty of wearing. Here's to one Fab year!
It's been a busy week for Roberto Cavalli! The Fab ad campaign for his collaboration with H&M appeared earlier this week, and now the lookbook for the entire collection has surfaced. As expected, leopard spots, zebra prints, and sequins are all over, and the color palette stays in the black, white, and gold range. The standout dress looks to be this gold flapper number, which Cavalli designed with Kylie Minoque in mind.
He is officially launching the collection at the H&M in Rome today, and will be in Manhattan for the US launch next Tuesday. The date I'm really looking forward to, however, is November 8, when we all have access to the collection in store!
Up next on Mr. Cavalli's plate? He's putting together the costumes that he designed for the Spice Girls reunion tour, set to kick off November 15 at the Victoria's Secret fashion show in LA.

Roberto Cavalli is synonymous with nightlife: bold animal prints, party-ready dresses and gowns, and of course, lots of glamour. When it was announced that he is doing a holiday collection for H&M, I hoped to see all three. I'm happy to say it looks like I won't be disappointed; if these ads for the collection are any clue, there will be more than enough glitz and glamour to go around — at affordable prices, too!
I'm dizzied by stripes and spots, and what a Fab gold flapper dress! The ads, shot by Terry Richardson, really embody a fun, carefree life, and they make me want to hoof it down to H&M on November 8. What about you?
November 8 may be a ways away, but the first photos of Roberto Cavalli's collection for H&M are already making an appearance. These specific pieces are a bit more toned down than I was expecting from Mr. Cavalli - there's no zebra print to be seen yet - but there is the requisite leopard-bibbed shirt, and a giraffe jacket can be seen in the background.
There's also a great little black trench, and Cavalli accessorizes with cigar hanging out of his mouth: all the better to work with, I guess! These pictures will have to satiate my curiosity for now, but hopefully more will leak soon...
