Even the most zealous of label enthusiasts may bat an eyelash or two at the sight of these Dior contact lenses. While we adore a Dior confection as much as the next, Chic isn’t quite sure we’d like a monogram plastered all over our retinas. Save it for a handbag, darling. Not only do these lenses come stamped with the Dior logo, but they make your peepers look as if they’re coated in gold. So, you decide—is eyeball branding crossing the logo line?

Everyone’s favorite Parisian, Marion Cotillard, graces the cover of July’s Vogue, as shot by Mario Testino. Inception hits theaters this summer, and we are eagerly awaiting our opportunity to see Cotillard in the sci-fi action thriller alongside Leonardo DiCaprio. But until the release date, we suggest you tide yourself over with some of our favorite Cotillard moments from the July issue:

 

“I play the bass guitar, keyboard, and tambourine—I’m their one-woman band and all-purpose maid.”-On playing in the band Yodelice fronted by composer Mazim Nucci.

 

“The hairdo with the big personality, the thick bangs and the ponytail. You paint your character with colors you have taken from everywhere.”-On her character in Nine


 "…I  found myself articulating why Piaf was still living inside me. She had been abandoned as a child; her greatest fear was to be alone. Now I didn’t want to abandon her. I finally was able to say, ‘She’s been dead for 40 years; it’s OK.’”-On her portrayal of and connection to Edith Piaf in La Vie en Rose

Carlos Souza, we worship vous. The public relations extraordinaire keeps the show running smoothly over at Valentino, but let’s take a moment to remember his marvelous jewelry line, Most Wanted Design. Instead of tossing out an old, drab oxford, give it an ultra glamorous makeover with these jeweled shirt buttons designed by Souza himself. The four piece set includes scarlet tourmaline, green tourmaline, amethyst and yellow quartz each encircled with a ring of diamonds set in black gold and oxidized silver. Sure, these gems may set you back $5,400, but these aren’t your average craft store buttons. We recommend sewing them on quite tightly. THE DETAILS: Vivre, $5,400

Into the Atwoods

Brian Atwood’s Resort collection is about “taking it a step further, with more color, more edge.”  No wonder there are so many “Skittle-like” hues and nautical elements. But the most head-scratching style? Atwood's foray into...loafers. Yes, the cobbler known for his platforms and stiletto heels has branched out, but he's still intent on his usual mission: “My job is to make the legs look longer and feet smaller!" Click on the Gallery to see the wonders this designer can work.
