Are these people mad? We just heard that the business people over at Chanel are unhappy about head designer Karl Lagerfeld’s choice to make Blake Lively the face of their latest handbag collection “Mademoiselle”!
There has been grumbling about the fact that Blake doesn’t really suit the classic Fashion house and we are hearing rumors that she has been accused of having an “off brand look”. What is that supposed to mean anyway? We are so glad that Karl Lagerfeld got his way and gets to put whoever he wants for his ad campaigns, we totally agree with him that she is the All-American dream girl! (NewYorkDailyNews)
Kourtney Kardashian was spotted at the McCarran Airport in Las Vegas carrying her Balenciaga Giant City Tote this past Saturday night (March 26) to attend a friend’s bachelorette party.
Jessica Simpson’s eponymous clothing brand has become an global success. Though it could have easily gone the way of many less successful celebrity brands, Simpson’s fashion empire is expected to do $1 billion in sales by the end of 2012. Jessica doesn’t get to keep the cash, but she pulls in a pretty penny on royalties.
But where does it go from here? Vince Camuto, who owns the brand’s licenses, says he envisions bridal, housewares and even freestanding stores. Yes, a Jessica Simpson store could be sitting next to your local Forever 21 or Gap in no time. The key, says Vince, is Jessica is hands on for all aspects of the project. He says:
She can be at a meeting for eight, nine hours, or she can be working two to three days in a row…Jessica knows her shoes and she has quite a good following — three million followers on Twitter…The customer sees Jessica Simpson with great product, day in and day out, at a great price. That’s what makes it a success. She talks about it, she wears the product.

In addition to the bottles, Karl photographed the collection’s advertising campaign featuring Coco Rocha, Heidi Mount and Jeneil Williams. A release is scheduled for June 2011, available individually or in a special collector box set.
