Maybe it's the fact that we finally saw Inception this weekend, but Chic has been having some seriously strange dreams lately. The most recent? We were backstage at Marc's Spring 2011 show, which was themed (wait for it) John Cougar Mellencamp and "blacklights." We can't explain why---can someone call DiCaprio?---but we can tell you that it was lovely, with full skirts in bright prints topped with fitted little jackets. The makeup (attention, Francois Nars!) was equally impressive: a brick red lip and bright orange blush, which was sheer enough to be absolutely wearable. Are we losing it? Are we psychic? Watch this space, darlings...

If your mind is still reeling over that $1,600 shredded olive Balmain tee from the brand's Spring collection---which sold out, by the way---we're happy to present you with something much more reasonable: this tee's only $533! Christophe Decarnin's 100% cotton flower-print tee shirt (and look: no holes!) is a veritable steal compared with the former, so we suggest snapping yours up pronto. THE DETAILS: Balmain floral tee, $533, www.colette.com

And you thought everyone was in the Hamptons! Sure enough, the crowd did indeed show for Intermix's TURN IT UP! event at Skylight West. Haro and Khajak Keledjian welcomed everyone from Hilary Rhoda to Yigal Azrouel and Adam Lippes to the affair, which featured a live performance by Locksley (and scores of Crumbs cupcakes, which, for once, did not remain completely untouched by the calorie-conscious crowd).

Orchidee Imperiale Treatment Orchidee Imperiale Treatment

Creams, gels, serums, oh my! There’s a truck load of alleged “miracle products” that promise to shave so many years off your life, you’ll look airbrushed into oblivion. However, when it comes to anti-aging treatments, Guerlain has Chic's undivided attention. The Orchidee Imperiale Treatment is a $1,500 affair that “accelerates the natural renewal cycle of the skin…stimulating and activating the regeneration process of the skin with a concentrated and graduated physiological micro-peeling action.” Répétez-vous, s'il vous plait. It's puzzling, and yet...we're sold.

Model Volodya Averianov may be only 17, but the gorgeous Russian already has a leg up on the male modeling competition, we'd say. How's that? The striking resemblance to super Natalia Vodianova might have something to do with it. Those lips! Those puppy dog eyes! Click Gallery for a few more shots, including one of Natalia for comparative purposes. If Averianov's doppelganger is any indication, this boy has big things in store.

Hot on the heels of Tamra Davis’ new doc, Radiant Child, which explores the genius of Jean-Michel Basquiat, this goodie available at Colette is especially apropos. Ligne Blanche’s collection of artist-designed candles features the work of Basquiat and promises to brighten your abode (and fill it with the delightful scent of amber).
