We Are The World

We are the World We are the World

Anna pays homage to MJ? Is this what we see in Vogue's September "We are the World" feature? Pretty close. Although Vogue's editors liken Steven Miesel's shoot to the United Nations, we see it as more of a Michael Jackson concert scene. Whatever your take, Edward Enninful materfully styles seven beauties---and earns extra points for decadence with all that fur.

We'd get burned by Alexander Wang any day! The Elsa frame clutch is like your grandmother's dainty pocketbook from the '50s. Only instead of a smooth black leather look, this one lights up the town with a red and orange flame print. A little bit more Sandy from Grease than Betty from Mad Men. THE DETAILS: Opening Ceremony, $925

Measure Your Rain Parade!

Don't trust the rainfall report from the weatherman with the perfect combover? Then use your boots to determine precipitation levels. Italian designer Stefano Pirovano launched his line of Regina Regis Rain boots 10 years ago to add "design and fancy" to shoes that are a bit more protective than your Lanvin flats during a deluge. Hope you're familiar with the metric system, because the boots display a centimeter ruler on the sides, just in case you want more precise measurement of the moisture. THE DETAILS: Rain Level, $88

Studs on your Christian Louboutins, darling? Well, if you're not sure about rocking the goth-chic look on your favorite patent pumps, then try it in smaller doses on a pair of kicks. Sam Edelman's Alexander sneaks (perhaps a nod to Mr. Wang who showed a plethora of fierce studs) feature studding, chains, straps, and just enough "wear" on the toe to make you look laid-back. You might spot Chic Reporters running around in these during Fashion Week... THE DETAILS: www.buydefinition.com, $149

Baubles for Babies

Gold Loop Rattle Gold Loop Rattle

At first glance this gilded creation looks like a pretty bangle, but not so fast...it’s for babies only! The gold loop by Areaware is actually a hand-tuned, sixteen tone rattle for infants with impeccable taste. Is it just nous, or does this look like it may hurt? Hazardous or not, we’ve got our eye on the baby toy. Adults are entranced by shiny things, too! THE DETAILS: Vivre, $150

We made it through Friday the 13th without any mishaps, but we'll sport this delicate lucky charm necklace for the rest of the week just for a bit of extra security. Designer Jennifer Meyer creates feminine and whimisical pieces using fine metals and precious stones, and Chic thinks this will make a perfect contrast to some of the tough, somber looks for fall. Now, what to wish for... THE DETAILS: www.barneys.com, $700
