Taking up a family legacy, Gia Coppola shot the commercial for the Zac Posen for Target collection. The commercial features the girl group, The Like. The commercial is inspired by “…old Beatles footage of them in their hotel room.”

In addition, The Like will be at the Zac Posen 24-hour Target pop-up store that is creating so much buzz. The pop-up store is happening next week from 11pm on 4/15 to 11pm on 4/16 at 481 Eighth Ave., at 34th St. in New York, NY.

Pop icon Madonna and her 13-year-old daughter Lourdes will soon be debuting a juniors fashion line exclusively for Macy’s called “Material Girl.”

But according to Madonna, it’s her daughter that will be doing most of the designing. “I just stand in the background and go, “That’s cool. That’s not cool,'” Madonna recently told Billboard.com.

Stella McCartney, says Madonna, is to blame (or credit) with instilling in Lourdes (nickname, Lola) the desire to design. “Lola has been bothering me for ages about designing clothes,” Madonna told Billboard.com. “Stella McCartney is a good friend of mine and she got her mind thinking when Lola was a little girl, about 8 years old. She started giving Lola fabrics and inviting her into her showroom and asking her opinion on things, giving her sketch books and stuff like that. Stella always pushed her.”

With an early exposure to fashion design, perhaps it was inevitable that Lola would dip her sketch pencil in the pool, too. “I have a lot of friends who are clothing designers whether it is Gaultier or Dolce and Gabbana,” says Madonna. “[Lola] has been around all of the shoots I have done and all of the campaigns I have done. She is always hanging out backstage. The last two tours I have done, she has been working in the wardrobe department. On this last tour she dressed all of the dancers.”

What can consumers expect to see in the new Material Girl line, set to launch this fall? Jeans, shoes, fingerless gloves, necklaces and other accessories — much of it inspired by Madonna and Lola’s love of dance, reports Billboard.com.

It’s been a brutal winter here in New York.  However, it’s Easter weekend and the sun is bright.

For me, this is a very sad story. We sent out a tweet about it on March 5th linking to an article in The Independent. This is how that piece starts out:

The photograph shows a starkly handsome Chinese man walking with a model’s measured gait, and wearing a rag-tag but well co-ordinated overcoat on top of a leather jacket. His eyes peer into the middle distance, in what one fan described as “a deep and penetrating way”, and he strides confidently forward.

But this is no catwalk model. This is a homeless man in the city of Ningbo. And now a band of web followers are calling him the coolest man in China.

I dare you to tell me this isn’t fashion related. 😉

We just luuurve the newest evolution in gladiator sandals by Chloe. Paired with khaki shorts or harem pants this season, it’s an oh-so-chic look that will have you channeling your inner warrior — whether you want to or not. Look out world!

Now, if only we could scrounge up the $595 to buy them.

The glam was back this year at the Oscars, and thank goodness for that!

Also, the range of great gowns was just rich! That much is obvious from all of the favorites I have listed here. I liked all of these dresses.

Here are a few of my favorite looks in no particular order:

82nd Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

The following post is from Mark Shrem.
“I’ve predicted winners for this years Oscar nominees for the 82nd Academy Awards. I have intentionally not read or listened to any reviews or other opinions on these movies, in order to have a clean point of view of the films presented.”

Best Picture:
Despite what the “experts” and everyone else is saying (The Hurt Locker), I’m going to have to stick to my guns and give my pick to James Cameron for Avatar. The simple fact that his movie has changed the way we watch and make movies and speaks for itself. This movie broke barriers in film making. The Hurt Locker, an amazing film worthy of best picture, if it wasn’t going against Avatar. The Hurt Locker was by far a better directed movie however, the movie itself is no Avatar.

Best Actor:
Great job by Jeff Bridges, and he may take it since he’s due for an award, however Morgan Freeman’s flawless performance playing Nelson Mandela was outstanding and I think he deserves the Oscar. Solid performance by the other nominees, however I didn’t see Colin Firth’s performance.

UPI POY 2009 - Entertainment.

If you hurry, you can own a piece of Oprah — her closet, anyway. From March 1 – 11, the talk show maven is auctioning off her previously used clothing, shoes, handbags and accessories.

Check out Oprah’s whole collection on eBay.

Each item has a starting bid of $100. Just three hours after bidding opened today, a red Carolina Herrera dress that Oprah has worn on the show was already up to $810, and there’s more than a week left in the auction!

All proceeds from the sales will go towards financing the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy in South Africa.

The utility jacket is everywhere right now and for good reason — it’s the perfect slouchy lightweight coat to add some grit and gravitas to a frilly spring dress and casual flats. Here are five of our favorites:

1. Boyfriend Fatigue Jacket by J. Crew. ($148) Check out more utility jackets at the J. Crew website.
