Tommy on Stage Fright!

Before Tommy Hilfiger took to the podium last night to accept the Pratt Legends award, he admitted to Chic that he used to get a bad case of the pre-speech jitters. “I did suffer from stage fright a little in the early days. I remember the first time I was on Good Morning America about thirty years ago, and I had such awful dry mouth," said the designer. "I could hardly talk! But after a while you get over it and realize it’s all about just being yourself.” The annual benefit raises money for student scholarships, and Hilfiger also confessed that he wasn’t always at the head of the class. “I was a terrible student," he said with a smile. "I could never focus on class. My mind was always somewhere else, thinking about the future. I like to call them ‘creative daydreams,’ if you will.”

Silver Denim Lining

One thing we know here at Chic is to always take whatever Cameron Silver does very seriously. After all, the noble knight of great vintage always jets to the right places, wears pink men's Louboutins to the couture shows, and has more starlets on his speed dial than most studio heads---so the launch of Decades Denim is a big deal. He thinks he can sell millions of pairs of his new, chic affordable Denim Trousseau collection, and we have no reason not to believe him. After all, an unheard of 150 retailers have already picked up the jeans for their debut season. All 11 styles are named for Decades icons: Marilyn, Marlene, Tina, Angie, and the vertically-blessed Nadja. Styles include a smooth tuxedo, a seamless velvet, a pocketless skinny, and a cropped cigarette, all in strong hues like basic black, indigo, clean white, and our favorite, “Ox Blood.” Silver also tapped a pretty good fit model for the look book in Rie Rasmussen---but we’re pretty sure these babies will look splendid on you, too.

Fresh as a Daisy

San Pellegrino may have those Missoni bottles, but when it come to designer water, Evian reigns supreme. After all, both Christian Lacroix and Paul Smith have designed glass bottles, and up next? Issey Miyake. This adorably cheery glass bottle by the Miyake Design Studio (available at Colette, natch) features a bright daisy and, we think, is perfect to use as a vase once your thirst has been quenched. Just one question. Perrier, what are you waiting for?

When the Tom Ford Private Blend lipsticks dropped, everyone scrambled to get their hands on a $45 tube. Chic admits our TF shade of choice--Ginger Fawn--is running low. Ford’s new line of Private Blend candles cater to the gentlemen (sorry, ladies) with musty, rustic scents like Tuscan Leather. How much will these man candles run you? $85 a pop. Well, if it's anything like that lipstick, people will pony up...
