Comments | | Print

Some of vous aren't seasoned enough to remember Cindy Crawford’s MTV show, House of Style, but long before Snookie and J.Woww, it was appointment television for fashionettes in training. In this 1992 clip, Crawford hits Paris and interviews Jean Paul Gaultier and a 26-year old Linda Evangelista about Herve Leger. “It’s his first show and it’s the one I’ve decided to do this season for free. Each year I choose a young new designer to support.” Adorable!

Food and fashion share so much in common that we've asked our favorite foodie designers for holiday recipes. First up: Peter Som's delicious brie en crute. Bon appétit!

PETER SOM’S BRIE EN CROUTE with dried cherries, apricots, walnuts, and herbs

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Roll out a defrosted puff pastry and place on a baking sheet. (Make sure it's a bit bigger than your wheel of brie). Spread dried cherries, apricots and walnuts on the puff pastry about the size of your brie. Sprinkle herbs (finely chopped rosemary, flat leaf parsley...) and place wheel of brie (approx 13 oz) and place on top of the fruit mixture. Gather up the puff pastry so it's fully enclosed; you may have to use kitchen scissors to cut away some of the excess pastry. Think of it as wrapping a present---an edible one! Turn it over so the seams are one bottom and place on the baking sheet.

If you're feeling clever, use leftover puff pastry and make some pretty shapes (like leaves) and place on top. Brush all over with egg and water mixture; throw in the oven for 20 minutes or so or until the puff pastry is golden brown. Let stand for 30 minutes or until cool enough to handle--because let’s face it, you won’t be able to wait.

 A Karl Lagerfeld television network? Chic can dream. For now,we’ll settle for today's news that the Kaiser has indulged his thespian side...and shot a Volkswagen commercial. We couldn't make this stuff up! The playful spots directed by Johan Renck (the genius behind music videos for Madonna and Robbie Williams) will arrive on December 22 in Germany, and Karl reportedly plays himself.

You didn’t really think you saw the last of Lady Gaga’s meaty frock, did you? As glossies start churning out those top ten of 2010 lists, we were particularly struck by the one found in Time. Unsurprisingly, they rated Lady Gaga’s boeuf mélange the #1 fashion statement of 2010. But what was that, exactly?

(NEW YORK) Congrats to Mara Hoffman and husband Javier Pinon. The Manhattan-based designer is pregnant with twin boys, due in May. These are the couple's first. Will the petits inspire Hoffman to bring her delightfully wacky aesthetic to children’s clothes? We can only hope! In the meantime, shop Hoffman’s first swim collection, which just hit net-a-porter.
