When Chic Met the Situation

We have to be honest with you. When Chic enjoyed a Miami getaway this weekend, we really prayed for a Jersey Shore cast sighting. And yesterday afternoon, our fantasies came true with the sighting of Jenni "J-WOWW" Farley, Paul "Pauly D" DelVecchio, Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola, Ronnie Magro, Vinny Guadagnino and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino on Collins and 6th. (Alas, Snooki was nowhere to be found!) We were going about our business on South Beach---hello, the best Kid Robot store in America!---while the super-famous guidos and guidettes were leaving their less-than-swanky Metropole Hotel for a laundry run. And what did that involve? Two security guards blocking the public sidewalk, three frantic producers, another production getaway car, and two giant black Escalades driven by the cast. Basically, the scene resembled a Presidential caravan. We exchanged a few pleasantries with The Situation, but to our disappointment, not everyone in South Beach is equally enthralled by these pop culture pets. The Delano and the W (our hotel of choice) practically banned the flashy guests, but they earn more cash than those bouncers anyway.

We can't get enough when it comes to our favorite fashion houses dabbling in furniture (c'est vous, Missoni!), and Bottega Veneta is our latest fixation. The brand opened the doors of its new showroom in Milan for the 2010 Salone del Mobile, showcasing the fashion house’s new furniture and home designs, and everyone from Tonchi to Bensimon ogled the ultra-sleek furnishings, fixtures and accents. Tomas Maier even masterminded porcelain pieces, cashmere blankets and sterling silver flatware. Don't tell us he cooks!

By now, we're more than used to the tricky shape that is the dropped crotch pant--so why did this Comme des Garçons pair catch us so off guard? It must be the madras, which takes the edgy cut in an entirely unexpected direction: preppy. Do you wear these with your combat boots, or with your needlepoint belt with little whales on it? Boat shoes or a black Rick Owens leather jacket? What say you, darlings: Would you wear these at all? THE DETAILS: Comme des Garçons Homme Plus madras short, $490, www.barneys.com

While there are many words to describe Karl Lagerfeld, “goofy” would not be the first that comes to mind. However, the latest issue of Elle Spain gives our favorite faces a Disney makeover---and we love! "La Moda Animada" features hilarious drawings by Ulrich Schröder, placing our beloved designers in an animated world. The Kaiser makes a fabulous Goofy, Domenico Dolce is Mickey, Marc Jacobs is Donald Duck (in a skirt, bien sur) and Donatella Versace is an ultra chic Daisy. Browse through the entire slideshow to view the rest of the cartoons, and we’ll gurantee you’ll be tickled. A perfect, whimsical start to your Monday morning.

Two of Chic's favorite things came together this weekend---fashion and game shows---when Isaac Mizrahi taped an episode of the Jeopardy! Million Dollar Celebrity Invitational. His adversaries? Spinal Tap actor Michael McKean and Charles Shaughnessy (yes, that's Maxwell Sheffield from The Nanny). The semi-finals for the show will air on May 3, 4, and 5, while the finals will air on May 6 and 7. Set those DVRs now---and Isaac, we're rooting for vous!
