In today's edition, Resin designer Chantel Valentene shares her obsessions.

1. Black Swan! It made me fall in love with all things Natalie Portman again. Love her in W mag's May 2005 issue, which I pulled out from my stack. Love her SNL spoof. She's my girl crush right now.

2. Veggie burgers and "The Bad Seed" drink from Black Market.

3. I just discovered Role Gold pretzels and nutella. A combination from heaven.

4. Jameson and a grilled cheese with a side of pickles.

5. Walking through Nolita on Saturday afternoon to get the fish sandwich from Cafe Habana.

More dish from Tom Ford’s interview in the January issue of Harper’s Bazaar.  The designer reveals what he watches all the time: Fellini films? Glee? Judge Judy? The answer is… straight porn!  “If I go on my computer, there’s a button that can connect me to all the sites I look at most often, and they’re all porn---and 1stdibs.com. Porn and antiques.” Good to know! He also reveals that since becoming sober, he lost 12 pounds, and can eat anything he wants. "All that puffiness that you have from alcohol just went away, and my cheekbones popped back out, I guess."

Trainer-to-the stars Louis "The Body Architect" Coraggio turned Valentino Garavani into a bronzed Adnois. We chatted with Louis to find out how. EDDIE ROCHE

Valentino has trainers all over the world---so how did he find you here in New York?
I started working with Valentino through a friend of his who I've worked with for a year. He completely transformed his body and recommended me.

Were you nervous the first time you trained him? Yes. Valentino is an icon. But when I walked into his door, I then remembered he was a regular person with needs like everyone else, and we had an amazing session together. I kept it simple and real, and he kept up with the training. His staff was pretty amazed, because he cancelled with his (former) trainer quite often---but never with me. He was always on time, and he saw results---he put in 100%.

Between working on pre-collections for both Dior and Galliano labels, John Galliano took time to christen the revamped Dior flagship on 57th Street---and dish with Chic. AMANDA ENOWITZ

How do you like the new Dior digs?
The last time I was here was for the re-opening years ago. Again, we worked very closely with Peter Marino. It's a shocking, thrilling experience.
We will miss seeing the Dior bag-shaped scaffolding!
I think it’s going on tour! It may come back.
How do you celebrate the holiday season?
Sun, sea, reading, and recharging my batteries, as you can imagine. I’m working on haute couture and Galliano menswear now. I hope to see you there! I’ll take a little break at Christmas and then it’s full-on in January! The haute couture is the essence of the house. It’s a joy and an honor to work with such magnificent craftsmen, painters, beaders, and feather makers. It’s a Cinderella world.

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!
