Whitney Port stars in Hills Spin-off show called "The City"

26 Nov

The Hills’ Whitney Port has moved out of Lauren Conrad’s shadow and into the limelight in a spin off show call “The City.” On the new show airing December 29, Whitney has moved from Los Angeles to the Big Apple to work for fashion icon Diane von Furstenberg. There are whole slew of interesting characters, some already looking like drama queens and potential doormats. The trailer is enticing enough that I am going to tune in to watch the show. Whitney sure is getting busy in New York. She’s torn between two boys and is launching a clothing line as well. Busy bee.

In other Whitney Port news, the reality star just started her own blog, http://whitneyport.celebuzz.com. Get to know her a little better in her video blogs and commentaries on fashion and living in New York City. She is also busy promoting her new fashion line Whitney Eve. Stay tuned for pictures of the collection, which is surprisingly good.

Matthew Williamson for H&M to Launch in the Spring

“It is an incredible opportunity to be working with H&M, creating a ‘Matthew Williamson for H&M’ capsule collection. I love the fact that H&M have created a new phenomenon in fashion through the pioneering concept of collaborating with high-end designers to create one-off limited edition capsule collections. I am thrilled that my creations for H&M will be accessible to and hopefully enjoyed by so many people around the world,” Matthew Williamson

Dear H&M,

Ever since I discovered you in high school, I haven’t been able to stay away from you. What makes me keep coming back to you time after time is your ability to give me what I want. You’ve been with me when I was broke and have kept me looking fabulous through today. You gave me the edginess of Karl Lagerfeld, the sexiness of Roberto Cavalli, the eclectic pizazz of Comme des Garcons and now you are bringing me Matthew Williamson.

It seems as though you are a mind reader. You provide me with my fix of designers. Ones I could normally not be able to afford on my meager salary. So thank you. Thank so much for making the most genius and artistically innovative designers available to girls like me. I can’t wait for Matthew Williamson’s collection for H&M. I will be standing in the line bright and early on April 23, 2009 ready to snag every piece in the collection. I will no doubt buy your pieces from the summer collection as well because I covet the resort collection each and every year. Please H&M, if this is a dream don’t wake me up.

Love,

Makeda

Sarah Jessica Parker looking for a new home for Bitten

26 Nov

Sarah Jessica Parker is looking for a new home for her Bitten clothing line. The star originally partnered with Steve & Barry’s to produce an affordable collection of classic and trendy pieces for the masses. Since the launch of Bitten, Steve & Barry’s has filed for two bankruptcies, the last as early as this month. SJP wants to keep the concept of the clothing line intact and is looking for a producer that will be able to keep the quality of the line top notch while offering it at an affordable price.

“We have to make sure that any partner we enter into an agreement with wants the same thing for the brand as we do, which is to serve the customer first. You know, it can’t be about commerce, it has to be about the customer, and we have to see who’s really willing to be that generous. Now, more than ever, people need all things that are about economy. So I want very much to continue it in the right way. So we just have to figure out what’s right for the customer, and how to do it in these economic times,” said Sarah Jessica Parker at the New York City Ballet’s opening celebration.

Bond Girl shows her tough side in corn rows

26 Nov

Showing up to an event with corn rows in your hair is a faux pas, unless you are Olga Kurylenko, the newest Bond girl. Olga showed up to the Tokyo premiere of Quantum of Solace messy cornrows but softened the look with a black satin ribbon. The Ukranian beauty was all smiles as she comfortably posed for photos in her black Chanel frock and diamond sparklers adorning her ears.
