Lindsay Lohan is “nervous” about the upcoming House of Emanuel Ungaro fashion show.
The 23-year-old star, who was unveiled as the French fashion house’s artistic advisor earlier this week, can’t wait for the Paris Fashion Week show, but is anxious about how the clothes will be received.
Gwen Stefani is surprised by how successful her fashion line has become.
The stylish No Doubt singer, who first launched her collection L.A.M.B. seven years ago, is thrilled with the pieces in the newest range, which she has spent months creating.
“I never thought it would turn out this good. I’m really spoiled. These jeans are as good as anything I have.”
If Ashley Olsen, Anna Wintour, and P. Diddy can’t get you to attend Fashion’s Night Out, perhaps Club Monaco will!
The retailer plans to celebrate the event by parking a cupcake truck outside their SoHo store (I’m sure shoppers will be in need of a sugar fix to finish the night).
Even if you’re not able to make it to the SoHo store, the rest of the stores city-wide will be celebrating with champagne until eleven.

Although Lady Gaga is booked for Marc Jacob’s Fashion Week after-party, sources are revealing that she may also be booked to perform at the Box during the launch party for Givenchy’s new men’s fragrance.
Dated for the night after Jacobs’s shindig, Gaga’s presence can be credited to Out magazine, of which she appears in this month’s issue.
Givenchy’s new fragrance, Play, is fronted by Justin Timberlake. Can you imagine a Lady Gaga-Timberlake collaboration? I think that the world just might implode at the center of Fashion Week.

British fashion designer Matthew Williamson‘s career highlight was Prince performing at his show.
The highly-regarded fashion designer says that the most rewarding moment of his working life was being asked by the eccentric pop star if he could sing during his renowned 2007 catwalk show, which received a standing ovation.
“Coming in at number one for me would be my 10th-anniversay show for Spring/Summer ‘08. Just 48 hours before kickoff, my PR received a phone call from Prince’s people, saying he wanted to perform at my show.”
As excited as he was, the 37-year-old designer admits that he was unprepared for the pop star’s unusual demands: “He wanted a stage to be built and we were told he needed a white room backstage. We had a black room, but, apparently, he wouldn’t go into that. So we literally staple-gunned white over black fabric. On the day, his manager called to say he was still in bed at London’s Dorchester hotel with an hour to go. Then, just when the show was about to happen, I saw Prince walking in. There was no rehearsal. He just went and sat in the front row. And when his track came on, up he got with his mike, and his girls came out and did their performance down the skinny little runway.”
Despite her entrepreneurial and worldwide fame, Heidi Klum “couldn’t book a job” when she started modeling.
The 36-year-old star expected it to be easy to launch her career after winning a $300,000 modeling contract on the 1992 television show Model 92, but initially found it hard to find work.
“After winning I thought, ‘This is my ticket. Things will happen.’ But they didn’t—I could never book a job. I was walking around New York for three or four years,” she explained.
Heidi, who raises three children with husband Seal and is currently pregnant with her fourth, says everything changed for her when she was spotted at a Victoria’s Secret show.
She now regularly makes it onto the Forbes list of highest earning models, raking in $16 million to take the second place in the latest edition.
Thanks to the comp card that was included in her agency’s show package, a flurry of rumors circled around a very 5-month pregnant Jourdan Dunn and whether or not she would be gracing the catwalks anytime soon.
A representative from Women in New York has cleared up the matter and has confirmed that the 19 year-old model will not be working this season.
Dubbed last year’s Model of the Year at the British Fashion Awards, Dunn is due this December.

Despite the fact that Rachel Zoe has her hands picking out the clothes that brandish her wardrobe, Linsday Lohan has been called “extremely knowledgeable” about fashion.
The 23-year-old actress starred as a guest judge on the sixth season of Project Runway and has been lauded by the show’s consultant Tim Gunn:
“I was surprised and pleased by how extremely knowledgeable about fashion and articulate Lindsay Lohan was. She’s very young and can be portrayed in ways that aren’t all together flattering, and she was a true states person and really weighed in on the designers and what they were doing exceptionally well. And it was really a thrill to have her.”
Tim has also praised show host Heidi Klum—who is currently expecting a daughter with husband Seal, with whom she already raises three children—for her sense of style. He told People, “Heidi has incredible style no matter what condition she’s in, and she looks fabulous in everything. She just always knows what she looks best in and she’s remarkable. I marvel at her all the time.”
Despite being a successful model, the most important thing in Heidi’s life is her family. Tim revealed, “Seal and her kids always come first, and frankly we schedule things around that. I have the greatest respect for her. She’s very, very grounded.”
Has Jessica Simpson traded in concerts stages for the runway?
Although her name is attached to a line of shoes, handbags, perfume and lingerie, the catwalk gig is not something we’re used to seeing from Simpson. Thankfully, someone allowed her to use her best serious face in Ozlem Suer’s fashion show. (You can see more stills after the jump.)
Her appearance in Paris was, of course, documented for a reality project. Jessica, who has had highly-documented struggles with weight, is currently filming The Price of Beauty for VH1. In the series, the 29-year-old will travel the globe to chat with various women about the beauty industry. (Cue her Proactiv commercials now.)
No word yet when Price will debut.

Doll-faced model Lily Cole is thrilled curvy figures are finally being admired.
The 21-year-old supermodel, who is 6ft tall and a UK dress size six, says the fashion industry will always be obsessed with size but thinks that curvaceous frames are beginning to be more widely accepted.
“There’s definitely still a fascination with being thin and skinny in the modeling world, but I also think there’s a celebration of curves. I have breasts. I love my breasts. There are models now who have more curves, and that’s seen as a good thing. I’ve never studied the correlation between the decades of plenty and the size of models, but it’s interesting, for sure. I was never asked to lose weight. I’m assuming people who are less successful are the ones who are told they need to be teeny to be so.”
The stunning redhead, who starred alongside the late Heath Ledger in his final movie The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, revealed she became a model accidentally and wants to try her hand at other movie roles next.
She explained to Britain’s Sunday Times, “People change direction all the time—there’s a lot of value in that. I fell into modeling. It wasn’t a choice, not that I was forced into it. I just got asked one day to do it, and I believe in taking opportunities.”
