Items Du Jour: Gwen for L’Oreal, Proenza Schouler, Daphne Talks

Daphne Guinness-- With her trademark red lips, it's about time a cosmetic company snatched Gwen Stefani up as their celebrity spokesperson! The singer-turned-fashion designer signed a contract with L'Oreal Paris; her full commercial will air during the Golden Globes.

-- Speaking of lips, Lindsay Lohan was spotted at the gym again (better there than at alcohol-infested locations), only this time her mouth looked detachable. I wonder if she's taking cues from her friend Kim Kardashian and blaming it on the flu...

-- Proenza Schouler released their second ever ad campaign. They're like the Givenchy ads, but with a splash of color. Thoughts?

-- If you're the least bit in love with fashion and you live in London, you ought to see Daphne Guinness speak at the Royal Academy on the 27th of the month. There's no other lecture on earth that could be greater than the psychology of clothes: "I once read an article in which a psychologist explained that, when we say we 'have nothing to wear,' it really means that we have nothing that expresses who we want to be that day," said the RA events and lectures manager Dr. Alison Bracker.

Items Du Jour: Lara Stone Covers Vogue Again, Alber Elbaz Cares

Pregnant Lily Allen at Givenchy—A pregnant Lily Allen showed up at Givenchy in some chic pregnancy wear. True to Fall/Winter looks, she kept it simple and Parisian with a gray long coat, white blouse, and black pumps.

Glee star Lea Michele has become quite the fashion darling, striking a pose with Zac Posen. With her nude robe-like dress, I’d say that she has some more styling etiquette to learn.

—Alber Elbaz is probably the sweetest, most caring designer. The Lanvin creative gave his models the option of wearing comfy gladiator sandals (at the last minute!) for his Spring/Summer 2011 show.

—After scoring Vogue Paris‘s coveted 90th anniversary cover, Lara Stone is right back on Vogue—this time, it’s in her native UK mag.

—Finally taking a cue from some sensible publicists, American Apparel attempts to save the brand’s image in some new ads that feature a less-creepy Dov in the face of their financial woes. He just still couldn’t resist shooting the ads in his bed.

—Traditional and iconic American swimsuit model Marisa Miller changes things up for 944, sporting a dark bob wig and gloves—a far cry from her usual California-esque look.

Description—Fashion designer Gareth Pugh will appear at the Istanbul fashion-forward festival, Istancool, as a DJ: “I haven’t done it in ages so I’m definitely a bit rusty - I’m certainly not skilled at mixing- it’s all about the selection.”

—After giving birth to her son, model Jourdan Dunn has dodged work and the spotlight for some time now. In addition to being snapped up behind-the-scenes of an i-D shoot, rumor has it that the 20 year-old is to appear in this upcoming September issue of Vogue.

—Where’s Tyra’s hair advice when you need her? Supermodel Naomi Campbell was working a Mobil gas station when a hair stylist adjusted her hair, only to reveal a bald spot on the side of her head—and it doesn’t look like she was making a statement.

—Sarah Burton, new creative director of Alexander McQueen, unveiled her resort Spring/Summer 2011 collection, and thankfully, she has stayed true to the label’s nature.
