Star Wars diehards, unite! Underground, graffiti, tattoo and pop artists alike came together to exhibit their love of all things Darth Vader as a part of the Vader Project that debuted at the Star Wars Celebration at the Los Angeles Convention center. Artists customized Vader helmets (see the gallery for a few of our faves---hello, Lady Liberty?), giving the iconic villain a much-needed makeover. Chic wonders, is the Force with vous?

You're are no doubt very familiar by now with Taco Tuesday, the weekly showdown among members of the chic set benefitting various charities. Tonight's battle? Chris Benz vs. Elle, selling $3 tacos all night and plenty of tasty boissons, all while Joe Zee helms the DJ booth---yes, really. The tips generated by both teams will benefit American Red Cross for the Nashville Flood Relief---so get thee to the Hudson Terrace tonight! Now, Chic doesn't typiquement pick sides, but since it's a win-win, we're going to have to go with our recent Chic TV star, Benz. Tacos all around!

We never expected spiritual guru Deepak Chopra to pop up on fashion's radar---but last night at T Magazine and ABC Carpet & Home's event (with the similarly zen Donna Karan), Chopra did just that. Chic couldn't help but notice the resemblance to one of our other favorite specs-sporting chicster, Naeem Khan. Naeem, do you need any spiritual guidance?

Katy Perry's glowing Met gown was the talk of the town earlier this month, but it turns out that the Lite-Brite-inspired look was pioneered by another chanteuse over a year ago. Enlightened was charged with creating the costumes for
M.I.A. and her dancers at last year's Coachella, complete with EL wires to illuminate her hat, sash, epaulets, medals and more. Her dancers also had the bright wires tracing the oulines of their clothes. We wonder why no one sported this look at last night's ABT Gala?

For those cynical among you who don't believe that Olivia Palermo actually works for Elle, here's your proof. She was just flown to Tokyo to "scout" Tibi for the magazine! (Wait---isn't Tibi based in New York?) Now that's dedication. Click Gallery for more images!

Olivia Palermo was flown into Tokyo, Japan this past weekend to scout contemporary fashion label, Tibi, for Elle Magazine. While there, she hosted a two part event with elite local press and VIP’s to celebrate Tibi’s 18th store opening in Japan, located in the Omotesando Aoyama Building of Harajuku, one of Tokyo’s prestigious shopping areas.

Bobbi Brown, located in the same building a floor below, partnered once again with Tibi by providing complimentary makeup demonstrations of the looks seen on Tibi’s Fall 2010 runway in NYC.  

Olivia was dressed in head to toe Tibi, noted in Vogue UK’s June 2010 issue as one of her favorite brands, throughout the trip.
