From Ciao to Howdy! Cowgirls and boys have a lot to celebrate in Texas these days. Prada has just opened their first store in the great state of Texas at 'The Galleria' in Houston. How did they ever live without it? The store, designed by architect Roberto Baciocchi, occupies about 470 square meters and opened last week. No word on whether Miuccia designed cowboy hats are on the way, but one never knows...

Chic Estate

Looking for a bigger place to hold a wild cocktail party? You're in luck! Holly Golightly's UES brownstone from Breakfast at Tiffany's is for sale for only $5.85 million. That's like the price of an Elizabeth Taylor necklace! The building has been divided into two apartments, but could be easily converted back to its original conditions, so don't let that discourage you, darlings. The 10 room, 4 floor, 71st Street abode has annual taxes of $29,845, and is owned by Peter Bacanovic (yes, the same guy who went to prison for his role in the Martha Stewart insider-trading case) who bought the place in 2001 for a paltry $1.88 million. Little black dress and oversize sunglasses not included.

Justin Bieber's lips cover the sneak peek of the January issue of V75 The Music Issue. Oh, joy! Britney Spears, Bjork, Dolly Parton, Lana Del Rey, Katy Perry, and naturally Barbra Streisand will also be featured in the issue that's being hyped as their "most explosive" issue to date. How dramatic! Is there a rose ceremony? Does the Bachelor quit?

Trend alert: Your dress code for the beach this Spring/Summer just got a hell of a lot chicer. Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott, under the creative direction of Giorgio Armani, shot Dutch beauty Milou VanGroesen (She reminds us of Joanna Coles+Tilda Swinton+Rooney Mara, non?) and Simon Nessman for their latest campaign that brings a little more savoir-vivre by the sea than we've traditionally seen. Very Armani! Click on our Gallery for more photos, and don't forget to take a moment to appreciate Simon's heavenly lips.

America's Sweetheart

The Statue of Liberty hasn't looked this appealing in years! Guy Aroch shot America's sweetheart Karlie Kloss for the January catalog of Free People, and the pics are adorbs. Quite a departure from some of the sexier looks we've seen sweet Karlie in (Hello, Vogue Italia!), and a return to her wholesome roots makes your Chic happy. She is the model that bakes cookies for her bookers, after all. Fashion Gone Rogue has more shots.

Today is the big day!!! Lifetime's premiere of Project Runway All Stars (the title should pretty much explain the premise of the show) starts airing in most markets at 9 p.m., and we're delighted to see some of our faves on the first episode. It will be lovely to see Austin "I'm the greatest star" Scarlett, Elisa Jimenez and Rami Kashou return to our reality, but we're more excited about the mentor and guest judge: Marie Claire's Joanna Coles (she gets to work with Sergio!) steps into the Tim Gunn role as mentor (she'll kick ass!), and Neiman Marcus' own Ken Downing (we heart him) will be serving as a guest judge tonight with regular judges Issac Mizrahi and Georgina Chapman. Does anybody else have a major hunch that this show will be quite entertaining?
