Whether Karen Elson is gracing the runway or the recording studio, we’re behind it. Her latest rock/blues album (made with husband Jack White) is titled The Ghost Who Walks, and with the exception of “Lunasa,” all songs on the album are written by Elson. The title song is a troubled tale of a man murdering his lover…frightening stuff, but Elson’s haunting voice is utterly mesmerizing. THE DETAILS: Colette, $21

Earlier this week, Christian Louboutin lounged on a stairway dotted with fabulous heels during the Le Carrosse Noir and the Loubi’s Angels event at Palm Beach Casino in Cannes. We always had a hunch that a one Mr. Louboutin would be the gatekeeper to Shoe Heaven, and this picture proves it. Don't be afraid; follow the light!

The Hermès Throne

Whenever we feel like our humble abode is a little too humble, we simply scan the home and leisure goodies over at Hermès. Our latest faraway dream? Owning this folding chair. The pear wood with satin finish varnish and cowhide armchair seems too luxe to perch on, but we’ll make an exception. Sure the chair may set you back a cool $10,200, but before you roll your eyes, remember, this is the throne of all beach chairs, darlings!

Just this morning, Chic spotted Jessica Stam joyfully tossing around a giant plastic heart...on an Aldo billboard ad, of course. And perusing Touch Puppet, we were reminded of an oldie but a goodie: Stam’s photo shoot for Numero, shot by Solve Sundsbo way back when in December of 2006 for issue 77. Browse the photo gallery for more images from the “Levitation” feature.
