Babes in Stella

Comments | | Print

Stella McCartney, currently in London awaiting the arrival of her fourth child (due in just a couple of weeks!), has one less thing to worry about when baby McCartney is born: her new children's line launched today, so the little one will have no shartage of adorable ensembles. Chic stopped by the Meatpacking district store this morning (where a colorful balloon artist was making balloon hats for pint-sized shoppers) to check out the wares, which are just as ridiculously cute as you could imagine. Tiny peacoat? Check. Cowboy pajamas? Check. Yellow rain boots? ...you get the idea. Check out the video for a preview!

Attention, jewelry-loving Angelenos! Chic recently checked out Gray, the gorgeous jewel box of a gallery conceived by talented cousins, interior design genius Chahan Minassian and fine jeweler extraordinaire Vram Minassian, where we spied exquisite modern and vintage jewelry, timepieces (Fred Leighton, Cartier, Rolex, oh my!) and stunning one-of-a-kind, head-turning home décor items and artwork from mind-blowing artists you’ve yet to obsess over. Not to be missed? The enormous, intricate ceramic bronze relief wall by Chahan showcasing impeccable jewels by Vram, and an awe-inspiring glass chandelier by French ballerina-turned-designer Nathalie Pasqua. THE DETAILS: Gray, 8751 Melrose Avenue, West Hollywood, CA 90069, 310-854-0091

You don't have to be a serious foodie to know that the trend du jour is getting close---thisclose---to your food, whether it's growing produce on your rooftop or taking butchering classes. (Chic has yet to try the latter, though we are intrigued.) Maybe the first step can be the Nogg, a "designer chicken coop" that's sleek and scuptural enough to be at home in the hautest New York home. Who knew a coop could be so chic?

Glenda Bailey presented Alber Elbaz with the Designer of the Year prize at last night's ACE Awards—and tonight, he’ll return the favor. The Bazaar editrix is being honored at the Phoenix House Fashion Award Dinner, and the beloved Lanvin designer will introduce her. The lovefest between the two spans ages: "He once gave me a dress with a love letter embroidered in the lining,” said Bailey. “Alber is a poet and a perfectionist, and in all my years in fashion, I have never known anyone more beloved and respected.” Chic seconds the sentiment!
