To promote its new line of Pure Matte lipstick, Nars tapped filmmaker Tim Richardson to direct a short film starring model Heather Marks. What starts with a nod to The Lady From Shanghai's most famous scene ends up in a kaleidoscopic take on Marks's face. It's a more arty take on lipstick than your average promotional campaign. Do you like it?
NARS's 15X15 soiree, hosted by Marc Jacobs and Daphne Guinness, brought out a bevy of beautiful models to NYC. While Daphne went galactic, the PYTs opted for something sexier. Julie Henderson looked sweet in a strapless pink print frock; Selita wowed in purple Balmain; Anja emoted sultry pirate power; Heather opted for Balmain's spiky studs; and Lisa Marie Smith took the avant-garde route. Decisions, decisions: which stunner is most Fab?
>> Before heading back to the States from Venice, a number of Chanel Cruise attendees — and show strutters like Toni Garrn and Siri Tollerod — made a stop over in Vienna for the annual Life Ball AIDS charity spectacular Saturday evening. The town hall was surrounded by 2.5 million liters of water trucked in for this year's marine theme, and the guest list topped 40,000.
Amber Valletta opened the motorcade in a blue crystal-covered chariot, Anja Rubik was in attendance wearing her favorite label as of late, Balmain, and Sessilee Lopez sported a blonde wig for one of her turns during the catwalk festivities. Heather Marks, Iris Strubegger, Emina Cunmulaj, Eliza Cummings, Kinga Rajzak, Sara Blomqvist all also participated, plus first-timer Stephanie Carta, who described the experience as "a fantasy world of glitter and botox and some kind of neverending celebration."

I know it's kind of hard to think about Fall while you're basking in the warm sunshine, but trust me, you're going to want to see these images of H&M's upcoming Fall collection.
It looks like the mega-retail chain has upped the ante in their Fall campaign using model Heather Marks to show off their fabulous Winter collection. The knitwear looks fabulous and I'm beginning to love the boxy, menswear-inspired cuts. The collection as a whole is quite refreshing and I look forward to seeing it in stores. Something to look forward to, no?

Where there's fashion, there's fun. At least that's what my friend Simon Doonan and I preach. I'm sure my girl GiggleSugar would agree. Like Barneys, Fab loves to mix fashion and humor, so we present to you this new post that highlights the funny moments in fashion.
Some fun happens behind the seams, where models and designers shuffle around trying to get everything ready for show time. Take this backstage snapshot of models Emina Cunmulaj, Behati Prinsloo, and Heather Marks. It looks like Heather is rubbing Emina's breast for good luck, while Behati tries to get in on the action with her mouth. All the while, Emina is thinking, "What? Does my breast look like Buddha's belly to you?"
Do what you will with each humorous photo; giggle with it, caption it, copy it. Bottom line, have fun!
