From Alex Williams' intriguing piece in today's New York Times: "For the inaugural issue, [Scene EIC Peter Davis] considered Justin Theroux, draped in motorcycle leathers as he squires Jennifer Aniston around town. Mr. Davis even considered his new Twitter friend, Courtney Love, who is not exactly listed in the Social Register." But! Model-cum-foodie and entrepreneur-to-be Elettra Wiedemann beat out them both. Believe it!

Lady Gaga tried on her Ivy League hat yesterday, namely a tall cage-like chapeaux, as she descended upon the Harvard U campus to launch her Born This Way Foundation to empower youth. Oprah and Deepak Chopra were on hand to help the pop sensation along with 1,100 students, faculty, and guests. "I wish there was [a kindness law]," Gaga told the crowd. "Because, you know, I’d be chained naked to a fence somewhere trying to pass it!"

Look who Chic spotted on her front row perch at Balenciaga this morning! Kristen Stewart (sans R-Patz) posed for the paps in between Anna Wintour and Charlotte Gainsbourg in head-to-toe Balenciaga that reportedly cost over $3,000. (Pocket change, darlings.) In January, the Twilight star inked a deal as the new face of the French house's forthcoming fragrance, hitting stores this fall. Smells like a winning combo!

'Gimme Shelter!' Says New York Mag

New York's Fashion double issue New York's Fashion double issue

To discuss: New York mag is building out its biz with New York Design Hunting, a print spinoff of its popular weekly digital newsletter of the same name, due this May. The new title will be edited by Wendy Goodman, who currently helms the newsletter and other design-y matters at the mag. The stats: A circ of 75,000, and a price tag of $6.99 for half of those issues, while the other half will be given gratis to industry spots (showrooms, designers, and the ilk). Like the biannual sister title New York Weddings, the haute home mag will aim to hit newsstands more than once a year (pending the success of its launch issue). Why shelter, and why now? Ad pages at top titles in the category are looking plummy, as are chez-related ad sales for New York. Come May, we'll see if the buzz (and apparent appetite) for domestic chic-ifying is still going strong...

J.Crew Suits Up Tribeca (Part Deux)

Have you met J.Crew's Ludlow suit? Surely you have by now. After all, the slim-cut, subtly flattering, modestly priced getup once warranted 1,042 words in the Observer. But if that doesn't convince you of its popularity, perhaps the fact that the suiting style inspired the name of a (second) Tribeca outpost of J.Crew will. Just don't take an accidental detour to the LES en route to The Ludlow Shop at 50 Hudson Street, which opened its doors yesterday. The chic space is tricked out with the likes of a Mies van der Rohe sofa, vintage vinyl, and old-school architect's blueprint cabinets. The dapper apple doesn't fall far from the tree, either; the namesake Ludlow style debuted at the Liquor Store a couple blocks away four years ago. Also on tap at the new digs: pecial collabs on shirts, shoes, and cashmeres to gussy up that Ludlow. But really, you came for the suit, non?

End Of An Era

Justin Bieber, in YSL? Yes! Justin Bieber, in YSL? Yes!

Chic is talking about today's big, now-you're-legal birthday of the Biebs, of course. Happy 1-8 to the formerly floppy-haired teen sensation! He may or may not have stolen Chic's heart with an accidental viewing of Never Say Never on Netflix one wintry eve. Happened. Is it weird to feel slightly existential watching J.Bieber age? Can we deal with the eventual pap pic of him and Selena splitting a cig (or some Salvia)? So many pressing quandaries. Luckily, everyone else seems to be weighing in on what the Bieb's next move should be, including a jaunt into space. On the fashion front: that trademark coif is indeed missed, but hey, this snazzy YSL number and chic frames aren't too shabby. Oh, baby
