Items Du Jour: Chanel Forbids Press From Using Its Name, Victoria Loves Curves
—Forget the hassle of putting on and removing your clothes! Engineer Paul Luckham and designer Manel Torres have created spray-on clothing that actually turns into fabric when it touches the body, allowing you to recycle the article.
—Coco Rocha takes the cover of Russian Tatler, her first cover as a married woman. What goes best with a gorgeous designer gown? A giant teddy bear, of course.
—Victoria Beckham appeared on The View recently to promote her latest collection. In addition to explaining what a dream come true this is for her, she expressed her desire to design clothes for curvy women: “I want to celebrate a woman’s curves, though you’re right, I don’t have that many myself… I love a woman’s body and I want to make women look and feel fantastic.”
—At the launch of her second bag collection, Kate Moss revealed that she thought that her modeling career was over after her first cover shoot with Corrine Day.
—Chanel made it known to the fashion industry that they don’t want anyone using the label’s name as an adjective: “And even if we are flattered by such tributes to our fame as ‘Chanel-issime, Chanel-ed, Chanels, and Chanel-ized’, PLEASE DON’T. Our lawyers positively detest them. We take our trademark seriously.”
—Finally! If you’re too lazy to head out to a Marc Jacobs boutique to purchase accessories and apparel, you’re in luck—the designer and his business partner Robert Duffy are to launch an e-commerce site, fully equipped with a virtual sales associate.
—Supermodel Janice Dickinson made a scene at Kate Moss’s party when she continuously showed the paparazzi her underwear throughout the night. Naturally, fellow model and friend Jo Wood was extremely embarrassed.
