Coffee Table Book... Or Work of Art?

If you appreciated the saffron-colored gates that once adorned Central Park, perhaps you’d like to invest in a permanent piece of Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s work. Innovative art book publisher Taschen plans to release a lavish and detailed volume of the married couple's lives and work. You can own this exclusive edition, designed by Christo himself, for $1,000. Expensive? Un peu. You may want to put this oversized book in a glass display case instead of on your coffee table!

Red With Envy

Karen Elson is on a roll! It seems like just hours ago, we were swooning over the red-haired beauty in her new Louis Vuitton campaign (side note: Chic will be desperately trying to recreate that perfect bouncy ponytail all summer long), but these shots of Mrs. Jack White in St. John are just as striking. That hair, that lip, and that perfectly matched red background make one heck of an argument for the brand. (See the Gallery for the complete campaign). Angelina qui?

Chic likes to incorporate fashion in all aspects of life, even in the bedroom. Lucky for us, famous Japanese artist, Yayoi Kusama, has decided to extend her collection of modern pumpkin sculptures to la chambre. Kusama is now creating petit pumpkin pillows with her traditional trippy spots. We’re obsessed with these psychedelic sculptures.
THE DETAILS: $149.79, tate.org.uk

LV Gets Inked!

Don’t be alarmed! While these neck tats look like the real thing, they are simply painted on logos for the Louis Vuitton menswear presentation in Paris, courtesy of Scott Campbell, tattoo artist extraordinaire. Campbell, who inks up Marc Jacobs, also customized a series of leather bags with the signature LV logo. We thought Chanel's fake ink for Spring 2010 would be the first and last in the designer tattoo trend, but Chic wonders: would you dare to don a label tat?

Chic has vacation fever along with vous, and while faraway destinations (like Mustique) are a must, weekend getaways are de rigeur, too. Hamptons aside, let's consider Montauk (provided you still count that as un-Hamptonsy.) The relaxing beach town's history (peppered with lore from Andy Warhol and the Stones) boasts current residents like Mickey Drexler and Ralph Lauren. Lady Gaga is even allegedly looking for a place. For thos angling for a mixture of old and nouveau chic, consider a stay at the Panoramic View Resort on Old Montauk Highway. Every room nestled on the majestic hillside has panoramic views of the white sandy beach below. Surrounded by lush greenery and the most fragrant flowers we've experienced on Long Island, it has over 50 years of hospitality experience under its belt. The rooms are designed with a quaint retro feel and a clean, white decor that conjures up visions of Adrien Lynne's haunting locales in Lolita.

The recent Derek Blasberg/YSL snafu has been widely discussed in the blogosphere, although (naturally) not on Blasberg's own Style.com---until now. Behold, a screengrab from the site's Fashion Feed, complete with "The 'Will Derek Blasberg Get Fired?' Drinking Game."
