Baptiste Giabiconi's Music Video, Revealed!

Comments | | Print

Just moments after walking in Chanel’s Métiers d’Art show “Paris-Byzance,” held on Tuesday on the rue Cambon, Karl Lagerfeld boytoy/model/and now singer, Baptiste Giabiconi, has released the full version clip for his debut single “Showtime,” produced by rapper 50 Cent. Filmed in the California desert, the clip features Giabiconi riding motorcycles, singing amongst explosions, and saving a damsel in distress! We wonder: is Giabiconi auditioning for an action-movie career? And just what does Karl think of all this?

There's something to be said for a long-sleeved satin dress this time of year. Elle Fanning once again wore Valentino to the premiere of Somewhere, held at the ArcLight Hollywood on December 7, 2010 in Los Angeles. She paired it with wispy Valentino heels and a sweet little braid. Sofia surely approved!

Neither mini nor maxi, Spring 2011's demure tea length is rapidly making inroads among the red-carpet set. Case in point: Amy Adams, who sported a grey J.Mendel Grecian-style gown to the Los Angeles premiere of The Fighter at Grauman's Chinese Theatre on December 6, 2010. She paired the look with scarlet Maniac pumps by Brian Atwood.

Look What's Talking

A $30,000 talking chess set seems totally unnecessary, so of course, we worship the thing. Hand built and engineered in a "marble-like" material called Corian, it was all Barbara Kruger's idea. Each piece has the ability to "talk" interactively as players make their moves. But maybe edit out the heavy breathing noises? We're slighty scarred.

WHERE'S WES? Locked in a Hotel Edition

Designer Wes Gordon is a relative newcomer to both New York City and the fashion world. Thank dieu he's agreed to chronicle his adventures for Chic Report in a weekly column. What’s he up to this week?

"Winter has definitely arrived in New York, and everywhere I look, everyone is sick!  For the past week, I could count myself amongst their ranks. Knocked-out with bronchitis and a flu, I went into quarantine mode, checked into one of my favorite hotels and spent four days away from everything, focused solely on trying to get well. After a day spent curled into the fetal position in the bed, pumped full of antibiotics and existing entirely on throat lozenges, I realized the worst of my symptoms: I was bored. Having spent the last six weeks travelling for trunk shows, I have what feels like an insurmountable amount of catching up to do in the office on spring sales/production and, on top of that, we’re already starting work on Fall 2012. Admittedly, I’m a big micromanager, and not being there was driving me nuts. I had to find something to do to distract myself.  A huge film buff, I decided it was time for a catch up with my favorites. Sniffly and tired, I had all my Visconti DVDs sent over to the hotel.
