Not that she’s been much of a fashion police target, Eva Green never regrets an outfit.
The Casino Royale actress - who is known for her sexy dress sense - doesn’t believe in worrying about clothes she has previously worn as “it’s simply not worth it.” Discussing her wardrobe and style, Eva said, “I never regret anything I wear - it’s simply not worth it. When I don’t know what to wear, I put on skinny black jeans and an oversized cashmere jumper - preferably from Donna Karen. If I can face it, I’ll put on heels.”
While she loves clothes, her favorite it is a black leather Dior bag and never leaves home without it. She added, “It has my initials on it which makes it extra special. I take it everywhere; it’s my Mary Poppins bag.”
The 29-year-old beauty also revealed Marlene Dietrich is her style icon: “She was so feminine but at the same time, still strong. I’m crazy about that everyday 30s look. I loved all the costumes in my new film Cracks. I wore beautiful high-waisted trouser suits, headscarves and gorgeous printed silks. The costume designer Alison Byrne is a genius.”
Judging by photos of her first shoe collection for Topshop, Louise Goldin is still very much inspired by the science-fiction fare.
Set to hit Topshop boutiques this February and March, Goldin’s killer footwear resemble those that appeared at Rodarte’s Spring/Summer 2009.
The thought of pairing these statement-making heels with Spring/Summer 2010 looks makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. Imagine them with those gorgeous Lanvin dresses or swapping Alexander Wang’s animal print shoes for these! Will you be sporting these alluring-yet-deadly shoes?

Matthew Williamson is venturing into menswear.
The British designer, who dresses the likes of actress Sienna Miller and TV presenter Cat Deeley, is heading into the world of men’s clothes following on from a successful collection with high street store H&M.
“I wanted to start a menswear line of slim-fitting, luxury cashmere jumpers in a range of great colors. I know these jumpers will become season-less staples in my own wardrobe. Cashmere and silk printed scarves and hand-beaded T-shirts compliment the line and form a solid foundation for the collection to grow next season.”
The clothes, which will be unveiled for Spring/Summer 2010, will be expanded seasonally and will be available at London’s Harrods department store and Matthew Williamson shops.
Matthew previously revealed that his passion for fashion started at an early age: “I wanted to be a designer from the age of about 11. There was never any question in my mind. I just knew. I remember my sister couldn’t decide if she wanted to be a nurse or a teacher, and I was like, ‘How do you not know?’”
“Sometimes I feel like Carrie from Sex and the City. I sit in front of my computer and ask myself, ‘Does the daytime have to be boring and grey?’”

Make no mistake, Victoria Beckham plans to be a fashion designer for the next 30 years.
The former Spice Girl has her own range of dresses, jeans and eyewear for her label dVb and while she is a relative newcomer to the fashion world, she has no intentions to leave it.
“I plan on still being here in 25 to 30 years’ time. At the start it was tough because people had preconceptions, but I worked incredibly hard and kept my head down. I have always had to work very, very hard with everything I do. That is just my work ethic.”
Actress-turned-designer Lindsay Lohan isn’t just making accessories anymore. The House of Emanuel Ungaro creative advisor star is planning to include other items of clothing in her 6126 collection, including jackets, dresses, and trousers in lace, cashmere and leather.
The line is expected to feature 100 pieces, ranging in price, with the most expensive item expected to be a leather jacket. Plans are already underway for further expansion in 2011, with a clothing collection of 150 items and a range of bags, jewelery, shoes and cosmetics under the 6126 brand.
Kristi Kaylor, principal in 6126 LLC in Beverly Hills, told WWD, “We’ve had amazing success with the leggings line. We have a great business with Neiman Marcus and several hundred great specialty stores. DNAM Apparel was the perfect partner to work with 6126 and grow it as a lifestyle brand. We’re launching the full clothing collection next year, and a cosmetics line, handbags, shoes, jewellery in spring 2011. It’ll be a young contemporary price point with contemporary styling. We’re conscious of it in the sense that we have great price points and quality products. The vision is to offer customers something that they don’t have in the marketplace today, items that go back with leggings: blazers, dresses and tops.”
Vivienne Westwood is creating a denim line!
The legendary fashion designer will collaborate with Lee to release The Vivienne Westwood Anglomania and Lee collection next autumn through Vivienne Westwood boutiques and selected retailers. According to reports, the collection will include superskinny jeans, microshorts and bondage jeans in a range of washes from indigo denim to metallic gold- and copper-colored denim.
Carlo D’Amario, the managing director of Vivienne Westwood, told WWD, “It is very important for us to work with a denim brand like Lee with such a strong heritage.”
The collection will retail from $128 to $320. Meanwhile, the designer is delighted with the results of her wallpaper collaboration with Cole & Son, which features iconic prints and patterns she has used throughout her career.
“It is good when my ideas get carried over into other artistic media. This collection is a perfect opportunity to be able to work with a heritage company like Cole & Son and to see my ideas from fashion translated into the world of interiors and wallpaper.” The wallpaper is available from Liberty, John Lewis and Heal’s.
A sneak peek of Lanvin’s Spring/Summer ‘10 ad campaign is out, and it’ll make you want to get up and dance in heels at the office.
Shot by Steven Meisel, the ads feature model Jamie Bochert (whom you may recall from the Rodarte for Target look book). Of the dashing photos, Lanvin artistic director Alber Elbaz said, “I thought maybe we need a bit of action.”
Even though we can’t see much of Jamie’s face, I still gather that people will want to covet the gorgeous dresses thanks to these beautiful ads.

Mounir Moufarrige has quit his job at the House of Emanuel Ungaro.
The Lebanese-born businessman - who had been the chief executive officer of the fashion label since 2006 - has left the company so he can focus on his other business interests.
Moufarrige has come under huge pressure recently after bringing Mean Girls actress Lindsay Lohan in as artistic director of the brand. The 23-year-old star’s debut line for the French fashion house was a critical flop when it was launched earlier this year.
While his focus will be on his other work, Moufarrige will apparently still remain a member of the company’s strategic committee and will oversee certain project and decisions. Marie Fournier has been named as Ungaro’s new general manager and will keep an eye on the running of the business.
Last month, Moufarrige defended his decision to ask Lindsay to get on board the company. He said, “We’ve got a celebrity and it’s a new concept, which we’re going ahead with. Ungaro, let’s recognize it, was a dormant brand, and now everybody’s talking about it today, so the level of awareness has improved greatly.”
Dolce and Gabbana admit starring in Nine was a “dream come true.”
Prestigious fashion designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana - who make a brief appearance in the romantic musical movie - were desperate to work on the project inspired by Italian firm director Federico Fellini because he is a movie “maestro.”
“We wanted so much to be part of this project! Federico Fellini has always been one of our greatest sources of inspiration, one of the most important Italian directors. For us, being part of a movie inspired by the work of the maestro is like a dream come true.”
Despite only appearing on-screen for a short while, the designing duo were thrilled to work on the celebrity-filled film, which stars Marion Cotillard, Penelope Cruz, Judi Dench, Fergie, Kate Hudson, Nicole Kidman, Sophia Loren and Daniel Day-Lewis.
They added to People, “Rob Marshall did an amazing work and the cast is amazing! He was able to put together the most beautiful and talented actresses of various generations and great actors. We couldn’t be more happy to be chosen, even if for a short appearance.”
