Michelle Obama 's Designer DuJour

Our dear friend, Brooklyn based French designer Sophie Theallet, has whipped up such tasty designs that Michelle Obama has made Sophie her designer Du Jour. In a beautiful all-American beribboned shirtdress, the stylish First Lady unveiled a sculpture honoring abolitionist and women’s rights crusader Sojourner Truth. Sophie discovered her boon by accident today after taking a break from sewing and turning on the news to discover her art on the president's lovely wife. “It was the best gift—it blew my mind!” Théallet says. “I am really proud—it’s the first word that comes to me. I love the way she is, the way she talks…and she looks happy in that dress.” Sophie, who is known for her well crafted, luxurious designs is also known for displaying her runway collections on truly ethnic women.

BARNEY'S NEW YORK, A Thing of the Past?

Close sources to me have revealed that there’s a firing frenzy going down at the ultra posh Madison Avenue location, and that sales have come to a screeching halt. This isn’t Barney's first time around at the chopping block, which in 1996 filed chapter 11, to protect itself from it's creditors. Amidst rumors that the mega fashion emporium is in financial woes, todays comes an announcement that its parent company, Dubai based Istithmar, will pour a staggering 25 million dollars to help the now almost defunct retailer. Industry insiders are speculating that this latest attempt by the Dubai government owned Istithmar is just too little too late. It’s going to be a sad situation for all those New Yorkers who have loyally turned to this designer retail institution for their kicks, to one day turn the corner and see the doors @ 660 Madison Avenue with its famous red awnings no longer open.

Gigi Stoll, who is well known for her artistic nude photography, has also photographed such notable personalities like Carine Roitfeld, Cecilia Dean, Catherine Deneuve, Zac Posen and many more. Her work has been feature on V Mag, Vogue Paris, Vogue Japan, GQ Japan, Visionarie, and Paper Mag to name a few. She is no stranger to the camera, her career started many years ago in front of the lens, being photographed as a model. The San Antonio born beauty was scouted at a very young age by a Parisian modeling agency, and the rest is history. Her natural ability to capture the art of the human anatomy, meshed with a fashion forward edge, has made a very distinctive impact in the art scene.

There is a lot of talk and scrutiny lately on models, actors, singers / “designers.”
We happen to notice that models in specific are given much criticism for daring to venture their little brains and fantastic bodies out into other fields like fashion design. Who’s to say that they can’t become “designers” … or for that matter, anything else in a creative field such as Stylist, Make Up Artist, or Photographers? … After all, models are around clothing and creativity as much as anyone else in this industry. They understand fit and what makes a woman feel great. So wouldn’t a model turned designer be a natural progression? … Or would the opposite be a better option?
we applaud those who have crossed over like, Kate Moss, Rebecca Romijn, Irina Lazareanu, Carla Bruni, Helena Christensen, and of course Ms Banks!
