Fashion Updates: Kendall Jenner Models and more

Kylie Jenner, the 13 year-old baby of the Kardashian/Jenner clan has just debuted her first solo modeling shots (photography was done by Nick Saglimbeni).  (Remember the episode when Kylie got very jealous of older sister Kendall, now signed to top modeling agency Wilhelmina, for submitting pictures when she wanted to do the same...aah that was really the most that we've seen of the girls on that show).  While Kylie still has a very commercial and young face, I mean she is only 13, her shots came out beautifully.  
She's adorable!  

Abbey Lee Kershaw, Crystal Renn and Eniko Mihalik were photographed by Terry Richardson for Vogue Paris.  The three models pose as criminal outlaws in the wild west.  Styling was done by Julia von Boehm.  
Man down!

Rihanna has graced the cover of Interview Magazine's December issue
I love this red dress and brown leather belt!
This glam shot is my favorite!

Anja Rubik on the cover of Viva! Moda for their winter edition.  Rubik was photographed by Viktor Dermachelier and is styled by fashion editor, Agnieska Scibior.  I really love the light and dark and the contrasts in the spread.

Designer Collaborations: November 2010

Christian Louboutin and Grameen Foundation

Christian Louboutin has created 'Peace of Shoe' for this holiday season after reading up on the Grameen Foundation which helps women in under-priveleged areas get access to technology and microfinance to help them move out of poverty and have the opportunity to start their own business.  100% of the proceeds go to this foundation and the shoe has a price of $1,495.  With only 33 pairs, individually numbered and signed in the world, run out and get yours if you are feeling in a fashionably giving mood!

Missoni & Toywatch
'Toywatch dressed by Missoni' a fun and fashionable collaboration, and just in time for the holiday season!  The collection is made up of six limited edition models (only 250 made of each) and are sold in Toywatch and Missoni stores as well as other high-end retailers for $445 a piece.  Some are made with just the scarf, others are made with the scarf and leather strap.  Which do you like better?  

Karl Lagerfeld and Macy's
Macy's department stores have teamed up with couture designer Karl Lagerfeld, one of the biggest promoters of collaboration designing, to create their third discount designer capsule collection.  Terry J. Lundgren, president of Macy's says, "Karl Lagerfeld holds a unique place in the world of fashion, and icon who is the ultimate modernist.  Through the decades, his style and vision have marked the history of design.  It is a tremendous honor to bring his inimitable perspective to our fashion customer".  The clothing will be available in September 2011.

Louboutin and Selfridge's

More Christian Louboutin.  Known for his signature red-soled shoes, he created a yellow-soled black patent-leather pump for London department store, Selfridge's going along with their yellow theme.  Known for having the biggest shoe gallery in the world, this is a fabulous edition!

Fab Rumor: Tom Ford for H&M
Tom Ford, a well-known designer who does not approve of overusing marketing techniques, especially in the media, to promote his collection, is making people even more excited that there is a definitive collaboration between Tom Ford and H&M, although there has been no official release on either party's part.  Only recently were pictures publicly released of Tom Ford's women's Spring 2011 collection!  I will let you know as soon as I find out if this collaboration is going to happen!

Valentino for Gap has sadly sold out after people slept outside the store before the morning opening, but better news is that Lanvin for H&M has not, so get out there before it's too late!
